Comfy, slippy

Some might consider the Big Agnes Air Core Pillow as a LUXURY item, saving 3.5 ounces and opting instead to cram clothes into a stuff sack and call it a night. For me, the pillow is a LUXURIOUS item, saving me from sleeping on a compacted brick of clothes crammed into a stuff sack.

Being inflatable, the pillow can be adjusted to just the right firmness for you. I inflate it full, rest my head on it, and open the valve until it's where I want it. When used on a Big Agnes Air Core mattress, I've noticed it has a tendency to slip off if used bare. I usually repurpose a shirt or fleece as a pillow case and that stops the slipping, and makes it a little more comfortable if you're a side-sleeping, drooling, pillow hugger.

The pillow comes with a stuff sack, but I roll it up with my Big Agnes Air Core pad to save space.

Typical Big Agnes quality.

I mated this pillow up with my Big Agnes sleeping pad, which I have had for over a year and have been very pleased with its quality, lightweight, small packed size, and comfort. I was afraid that this pillow would leave me wanting for more thickness, but I am pleasantly surprised that it is just the right amount of thickness without inviting your head to roll off in the night. Packs up small and light. I am an ultralight camper, but a pillow is a must for my neck. This is the best I've ever tried.

Great product

This pillow works great. Weighs ounces and fits/stores right in the pillow pocket of my Big Agnes (crystal) bag(even when in the stuff sac.). Very comfortable and wide enough so your not searching for it all night. If I could ask for one improvement it would be to add another inch of height to it. However, I just stuff a shirt/towel under it and the height is good for me.

Awesome take anywhere pillow

I've used this product at work mostly but did use it on a recent backpacking trip. I work in an ambulance and sometimes sitting in front is not comfy. I just inflate this thing and now i got something to lean my head on. It just takes two breaths and it fits in my work bag. Backpacking with it was great along with Big Agnes's sleep pad.

great multiuse pillow

i use this with a thermarest stuff-sack pillow and find the combo works great. my wife likes to use a pillowcase from home to feel more comfy and get a better sleep. a great bonus use is it doubles as a seat cushion when you only have the ground to sit on.

Pillow Talk

Easy to use but too hard fully inflated and too thin at a softer pressure. You need to wrap a fleece garment around this to be comfortable, other wise much better than nothing. Packs up small.

Great Pillow

I was nervous this wouldn't be comfortable or it'd be bulky on my neck. But it's been great. Totally worth the money.

Great product

Great Product- Full Size Comfort with hardly any increase in packing bulk or weight

Light Weight and Packable

This pillow is light enough to be worth the added weight (4.2 oz).

Negative Reviews:

Disappointed BIG time

Added this to my light weight gear set hoping for a winner but not so. The large rectangular shape does not fit inside a mummy bag and still allow tight closure of the bag on a cold night. Placing it outside the sleeping bag either on top or beneath my air inflated mattress was comical! Every time I put my head down, it shot out from under the slippery sleeping pad and hit the wall of the lean-to. I am big and getting my arms out the mummy to retrieve the pillow proved too tiresome after 10 attempts so I folded up my jacket and slept on that frustrated. Although lightweight, compact, and high quality it simply doesn't function as a pillow very well. I would like to return this item for a refund if EMS will take it back. This time Big Agnes is a Big Disappointment!

Just okay...

I bought this to use on my AT thru hike. Gave it a few night's test and was unimpressed. It's now part of the gear I forward ahead in my bounce box ... and I plan to use it as a seat at Trail Days. Following that event I'll either leave it in a hiker box or send it home. It's thin and wide and doesn't provide much loft. Also needs to be wrapped in something or else it gets cold at night.
