    A camping,car,travel pillow

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It's better than the floor or a rolled up shirt, good for people who need pillows Ina tent. Compresses to afairly small size, Nalgene bottlish. Used in a car for a few hour trip and multiple camping trips.

    Filling Unimpressive

      I had high hopes for this pillow based on these reviews but was not impressed with its filling. It just wan't very comfortable. I would just assume using my jacket instead, settled for an air pillow instead.

      Awesome PIllow

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      These pillows are great. It always sucks when you are camping and realize you forgot your pillow. Luckily with this, it is so small you can just keep it in your camping stuff at all times.

      Great pillow

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These pillows are awesome. I have now bought them for my entire family! They are super plush but pack down to almost nothing. These pillows are great for car camping and airplane trips.

      Great for the price

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Pillow took a long time to fully expand. By day three it was still pretty flat so I tossed it in the dryer on low heat for a few minutes and it expanded completely into a nice, fairly firm pillow. Also washed up well after a week of use. Felt almost too firm for my preferences but nothing uncomfortable.

      Perfect camping pillow!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      We bought 3 of these to bring with us when we embarked on a VW campervan vacation. The size was perfect for us to transport on the plane to our destination and performed flawlessly as our pillows in the van. No complaints from this middle-aged woman (meaning, didn't wake up with neck pain on any of the 4 nights I slept on this pillow in a campervan!). Recommend!

      Don’t worry- it inflates more!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Ok, so I ordered the medium pillow for travel to India. When it arrived I was initially disappointed by it’s lack of fluff. However, I discovered that the longer it is unrolled the more the pillow inflates! It’s a little bulky for international travel but I thought it was worth making a little more room for it in my pack. It doesn’t really fold down all that small. Either way, I dig it!

      Pretty nice

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I used this pillow on a three day camping trip and found it to be a very nice thing to have. I found it most helpful for the long drive back home.

      Looked promising, and it totally was

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I just got this today. It came packed and I opened it up to let it air and fluff. It's™ been about 3 hours now, and I can’t tell if it will fluff more. It is equivalent to a soft pillow, and I like mine with a more firm support. Overall, I think it will work. I wanted something light, compact and comfy, so I wouldn’t need to pack our pillows. It says for better lifting to throw in the wash and tumble dry-that true? I will try that out. I’ll follow up my review once I’ve used it in the wild.



      UPDATE:

      We used these in an Air BNB over the weekend and they were great. They fluff up amazingly, and were very comfy. I love that they are compact and provide a good support. There are 3 of us, so I didn’t want to bring 3 pillows from home when camping. These are perfect. We got the Large and although smaller than our reg pillows, they are a good size for camping. I highly recommend this pillow.



      UPDATE 2:

      We finally took these camping and they were AWESOME. I love that they compress down so well. We took 4 with us, and they were about the size of one regular pillow. They were so comfy and very soft and cushy. It was chilly out, so these were cozy (as opposed to blow-up pillows). I'm really happy with this purchase, and totally recommend these pillows for your comfy car camp set up. Totally worth it.

      Amethyst & Grey

        Bought one previously before but I small it too small as my husband was right- when you want to sleep camping you want to feel like home. So I bought this bigger size which is still packable bit bigger. They puff up so big and become so comfortable, sleeping with these make all the difference. You have to open these up first thing and shake them up frist- the longer they are unfolded the more the puff up. Bought the grey one for my husband and he loved them too! Now I dont have to deal with him bringing the pillows from home taking up space in the Subaru with all the other camping gear.

        Meh.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Not my favorite, but it does the trick I guess. I bought as a dual purpose big backpacking pillow and small car camping, and I realize my mistake in trying to do two in one--it sucks at both! Too big to pack in a backpack, but too small and lumpy to want to use if I'm just car camping and can take something better.
        I'll probably keep using it for a bit until I feel like I've used it enough to justify the purchase, and then will try something else.

        Great camp pillow

          I purchased the large size, it comes fairly compressed but once you unfold it, it’s impossible to get back to the original packing size. The large is definitely more suited for car camping than backpacking due to the amount of space it takes up but it’s surprisingly comfortable and I would highly recommend it.

          Wonderful pillow!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          My wife and I love this pillow. We have an XL and M that we use when we camp. It is by far one of the most superior camping pillows that we have owned. There may be a small trade off in size for backpackers but it is well worth it if you have been looking for more comfort. I would suggest a dry bag and attach it to the outside of your pack if you were trying to maximize space. No complaints.

          Great for camping

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Pros: Big and soft when opened. Really comfortable. Simple cinch design. Great for camping. Really lightweight.

          Cons: Not very compressible, maybe around 7"x7"x16" when compressed. Kind of an awkward shape when compressed.

          Some people say it is "lumpy". It feels like there are hundreds of little spherical 1/2" beads in it. For me, I don't mind the texture of it.

          Great for short trips!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Super comfortable pillow . It's slightly compressible and very soft. If you're looking for something to use on more than an overnight backpacking trip, I'd recommend going with a down pillow for the reduced weight and extra pack room.

          Is this good for back packing or mainly car camping?

          Best Answer

          Hey Ross,

          This will work great for backpacking as well as car camping. It compresses down to a good, small size. It does weight a little bit, so you have to decide for yourself how big of an issue that is. The weights are:



          Small - 7oz

          Medium - 9oz

          Large - 12oz

          ... btw the ultimate answer to your question is "yes." Good for both. I actually own two copies of the pillow and I use them in the car (for my kids) on long rides.



          If you want to see this thing fluff: put it in the dryer. WOW.

          I used to take a small version backpacking, but there are better options if you are concerned about size and weight. The inflatables take up much less space and you don't have to worry about them losing their "fluff" while in the field.

          What size did you get? Anyone using a small? I pretty much sleep on my back.

          Thanks!

          The small is great! it's just enough cushion to not have your head directly on the ground. I've stopped using full-size pillows long ago and since I travel a lot, the small is great to use on the go (saves space packing), and very comfortable to sleep on. Hope this helps!

          FIrmness/compression of this? I have another pillow that looks deceptively similar and I was unhappy with how it compressed to a rock hard mess. I should know better given these are compressible, but try anyway right? Does this hold up? Or does it at least offer a uniform, relatively soft surface once your head is down?

          Best Answer

          It is amazingly soft. I use a small and a large depending on what I'm doing. They do roll up tight, but when unpacking fluff them up and wait 10 to 15 minutes. All the comforts of home, seriously! Do not store these pillows rolled up or they will take forever to fluff up!

          Do you think this would be a good pillow for a week long backpacking trip? If so what size should I get?

          Best Answer

          These pillows all weigh @ less than a lb, and are worth it for a little comfort to a good nights sleep. Size depends on how comfortable you want your head to be. Medium works for me, and I usually shove a packed stuff sack underneath for extra padding.

          The pillow will compress but still takes up a decent amount of pack space and as James posted they are not very heavy but a pound is a pound when you are carrying it. With that said, I carry one and need it for a good nights sleep. I also have the medium and use a down sweater or fleece for extra volume.

          i lost the instructions. how do I wash the pillow can i put in in the washer of strictly hand wash ?

          Best Answer

          This is from the washing instructions tag on my pillow, "Machine Wash GENTLE. Tumble Dry LOW. Not to exceed 125 degrees. DO NOT DRY CLEAN! Made in U.S.A. I think hand washing is always better, if you prefer, then hang dry using two spring loaded clothes pins, reversing every few hours until dry.

          I have washed mine on a warm regular cycle and tumble dried on medium with no issues. The only way to get them to "refluff" to a full pre-compressed state is to tumble dry them, in my opinion. I usually let them air dry for a day or so after taking them out of the dryer in case there is any additional moisture.

          If I get the large one, will this fit inside my Atom sleeping bag??? Or should I just get a medium?

          Get the large. Mine fits nice & snug into my WM Ultralite sleeping bag hood. It will also compress into your sleeping bag stuff sack without noticing any difference. The large does weigh three ounces more than the medium.

          small or medium?

          Best Answer

          I would get medium, I got the small and it is nice but.... I would totally go for medium if I could change.If you're looking to save a little weight and space in your pack, go for the small. If you are car camping or roll around a lot in your sleep, get the medium, or even the large.

          Does this come with a stuff sack?
          How small does this pack down for backpacking?

          Best Answer

          They come with an attached stuff sack that they roll in to. Thats what the attached string in the picture is for.The small size compacts down to 10"x4"x3.5" when rolled into itself. The large size compacts down to 13"x5"x4". Check the pictures I've added to see them compared to a standard bed pillow.
