I hate those pillows that are just fill. Not hard enough, tend to loose shape, sag and make you wonder why you brought it in the first place...
I like my pillows hard, so inflating this thing all the way is to my benefit. Just the right amount of fluff. Depending on how cold it is as to which side I use, Microfiber when cold and Nylon side when warmer. It stays inflated and packs down into a small ball for space saving.
Great pillow, could be a litle bigger, though it would not be so compact. (less than half the size of a Nalgene bottle). I like to inflate it and place it under my head, than slowly let some air out to get the right softness. If you wrap it in a fleece jacket it is even better. I will never pack another "stuffed" pillow.
I've always used a rolled up jacket and clothes as a pillow, but carrying the extra 6.5oz is definitely going to be worth it. It packs down really small and is really comfortable. I love it.
Got this for my Dad. He says, "Took this on a 70 mile Uinta Hike, lightweight and worked perfectly!"
Well, the "air-core" name had me thinking this little baby had some internal structure to it. Maybe it does. But, unless it's inflated pretty solid (in which case it's like sleeping on an egg balloon), the air just moves around inside the pillow, so your head ends up on the hard ground because the air migrates to the other end. It does have a nice soft microfiber cover on the top side, and it sure packs up small--think small soda can size. But I'm sending it back.
I tried out this pillow the other weekend and was really exited about it at first. It packs down super small and is light weight. It has microfiber on one side and feels great on your head, but the other side is nylon and slips off of anything you have it on. I spent the night using my arm as a pillow and didn't sleep very well.
My dad used it with his hammock and said he loved it so maybe it's only good with a hammock?
