    Horribly Flat Pillow

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

    I was looking forward to taking this on a long 7-day hike and when I got it and put my head on it it deflated like a flat balloon. Horrible! Not happy I spent that kind of money on this! I left it home and here it sits.

    Packs small

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I wish this were a little bigger, It's soft and certainly better than rolled up clothing but still is pretty small. I find propping it up on something else and using this to make things softer works the best.

    Best Pillow!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was reading some of the complaints on this pillow and wanted to say that Western really does a great job here. Yes, it's small and packable, but also has 3.5 oz of 900+ down in it. Our specs say 800+, but to be completely transparent, we do that to be incredibly conservative. We have received test scores above 950 several times... but that was in "testing conditions" where the down is allowed to loft for 5 days before testing it. That's not realistic in the Backcountry.

    So, when you use this pillow, and if you need more support, please use a fleece or down jacket under it. At least you won't have a zipper mark across your face when you awake!

    Great Pillow

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Has worked out great; lightweight, handy, a bit on the flatter side. These have pillow covers/stuff sacks attached; as long as they don't get in the way, it could be a handy feature

    Hey Karen! Thank you for the review. A lot of folks say that this is too small, but not for me. I use additional support under it - Like my down jacket, and then this on top. It allows me to have a comfortable night without zippers in the way. Also, if we made it bigger, it would be less packable and WAY more expensive, because the ONLY down that Western uses has been consistently rated 900 fill plus... which is the best used in our industry. We don't even MAKE anything with lesser down than this. The specs of 800+ fill are used to be extremely conservative, but I have seen test scores of 960! THAT is the quality of down in this pillow! :-)

    Thank you for writing!

    Cool idea, not enough support

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love down products and western mountaineering products, but in pillows they don't really mesh very well. The down is very soft and fluffy, but it goes flat once you lay your head on it. I have folded the pillow in half, which adds more height to the pillow, but it becomes so small it is hard to stay on the pillow. I am going to try and use my down jacket in their stuff sacks or get an inflatable.

    Great if you like flat pillows

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

    I find this pillow great but i should preface this review with the fact that i like flat/thin pillows when sleeping on my back.

    When lying on my back it i fantastic, but on my side not so much. I solved this by folding it in half on the long axis and this makes it perfect when on my side. This may be a solution for those who like a fuller pillow.

    So for those of you with a flat pillow fettish this is the pillow for you!


      this sucker provides zero support. as soon as you put your head on it, it goes flat.

      inflatable is the way to go. or just use your spare clothes.

      defiantly do not waste your $ on this one.

      Works Wonderfully For Me

        First off, a disclaimer. At home a prefer to sleep on ancient, worn out down pillows. I dislike fluffy pillows, and like the old dead ones that are relatively flat. So with that said, this is a great pillow for me. You can stuff it into any position, and it's nice and soft. For some, it will be too small and not puffly/fluffy enough. For the lightweight and good compressibility though, I would certainly recommend this pillow for those who aren't looking for the superfluff. For those who want something more, check out the Nemo Fillo Pillow, Backcountry item# NEM0020,

        cradle my giant melon

          I tried this out, but sent it back. I should have read the reviews first, as I need more neck support and something that will cradle my giant melon. This, as others have said, just went flat as soon as I laid my head on it. I ended up going with a lightweight inflatable pillow, and I have been quite happy with it.

          Light but flat

            It looks like a really nice pillow and feels like a really nice pillow but just doesn't perform like one. Unfortunately your head just sinks right on down to the bottom and there's no real support. Not really what you're after when you spend $40.

            Western Mountaineering Down Pillow is the bombdiggity

              This pillow packs really small and is super comfortable for any camping trip. It is pretty small like the other reviews say but it'll make a huge difference in your night's sleep without the expense of hauling extra baggage around.

              Yes, It works on the moon.

                IMO. Best Pillow Ever!

                Do yourself a favor, and buy one. Nemoequipment does have a pillow; however it runs 11 ounces! This thing is awesome. It does sink when you lay on it, however, as Scott Wiley says..."It may seem under-stuffed at first - but in practice it is just right" Like other WM products, it is expensive - but again, you get what you pay for. But one!

                Small, soft and comfortable

                  This is a nice, smallish pillow. It is very lightweight, and packs small. It comes with an attached stuff sack. However, if you are expecting a home-sized pillow you will probably be disappointed. It is relatively small, and your head does sink into it. If you are used to a small, thin pillow, it could be very nice (and much more comfortable than sleeping on a stuff sack of clothes). I have found that it fits nicely into my Big Agnes bag's pillow pocket, but then I put a folded fleece under it to add more bulk. It is pricey, so before you buy it you should ask yourself whether a smaller (but very soft and comfy) pillow will meet your needs.


                    This little wonder made all the difference for my wife's first backpacking trip. It is very comfortable and easy to store. I prefer the air-pillow because I need more support between neck and head, but if you like a down pillow, this one is great!

                    Western Mountaineering Cloudrest Down Pillow Review

                      The Western Mountaineering Cloudrest Down Pillow is definitely comfortable, and the lightest backpacking pillow that I could find in the market. As I have tested both this pillow and the Therm-a-Rest pillow, I will say I like the Therm-a-rest pillow more. This pillow is great because it is very light at 4oz, very packable, and extremely comfortable and soft.

                      This pillow is small, which makes it difficult to keep your head on the pillow all night without readjusting. Also, your head sinks down into the pillow pretty far. It is also very expensive. I am not sure if the price justifies what you get, but that's just me.

                      not enough stuffing

                        I ordered this pillow after reviewing a lot of others opinions on it. My husband an I were very disappointed. For backpacking, it is more comfortable stuffing a sack with cloths than using this pillow. For car camping it is way to small and under stuffed. It would be more useful if it had twice the amount of stuffing in it.

                        Why does Western Mountaineering website...

                        Why does Western Mountaineering website say that it's Made in the USA but Backcountry list the country of origin as China?
