Slept soundly

We always backpack with a plan to bundle up our clothes and use as a pillow... and every morning we wake up a little sleep deprived and with a sore neck and/or back. This has been the norm for many years. I hesitated to buy this air pillow b/c of the cost, which is pretty high for an air bag. I have to say, my wife and I are really happy with these. I proablby slept 1-2 hours more (less tossing and turning and "readjusting" my former clothing pillow) even though we went to bed and woke at the same time! No neck discomfort or back ache. Very comfortable. As with my air mattresses, we learned that we like them a little soft - being able to adjust how firm they are is great too. The heaviest part was the glue and patches that it comes with -- I'd take at least these out on our next backpack trip to save an ounce or two of weight. I worry that then insides will get moldy, b/c you blow these up and drying them out will be challenging. I store these, as recommended, with the valves open, but still worry a little.

Great inflatable pillow

I have used cheap plastic inflatable pillows and have hated them, this one is really nice and the fabric covering has a nice feel. It included a nice, small patch kit in case its punctured, which could double to patch sleeping pads. I did a backpack trip on a mountain rainforest and really appreciated the pillow. I would recommend a cover, even if its just a t-shirt, to keep in clean from skin oils and such, and to keep it from sliding around, and to allow extra breathability. I was hesetant because of the price, but in extreme backpack situations in remote areas, a good nights sleep offsets the cost, and I expect this to last for a long time, I was impressed with the quality of the fabric and the air valves. It collapses and folds very quickly and is very small and lightweight.

Best Camping pillow ever!

Loved mine so got sons girlfriends one. They both have there own and also love them. I'm older (63), have camped a lot and used many different pillows. By far this is the best, resulting in a great nights sleep. I leave it in my Exped pad bag so I have it with any sleeping bag I use. Spent all last Jan in Baja with my son and our motos and slept well every night! 6 nights in cheap motels, the rest was camping somewhere. It's so compact (tiny) I'd never think about leaving it home.

Sure beats a rolled up fleece

Amazingly compact and superlight weight, this pillow can go with you everywhere! One trick I've learned is to only fill it half full of air so your head and neck sink into the pillow slightly. I used to roll up fleeces behind my head and call it a night but after trying this pillow, there was no going back.

Finally found it

I sleep on my side. I've used packable pillows and rolled up clothes to support my head in the past, but I always woke up with a sore neck. The Exped air pillow is the first packable pillow I've used that provides the comfort of a full size pillow. It is also small when packed, lightweight and durable.

Excellent Purchase

I used this on a 4 day hiking trip. It was light weight and very compact to carry. I was glad to have it at night when I slept. I never woke up with a neck ache like I do when just using an article of clothing for a pillow.

Good solid product

Used this pillow for one month on a trek in Nepal. It was comfortable, lightweight, and packed easily. While this was only a one month trial it was durable given its daily use. Of course, for the price, it should be all of these things.

The perfect compact pillow

This is my favorite all around pillow. It is very comfortable and gets incredibly small. I use it backpacking, in hotels, on the airplane and any where else I want to get some sleep. It is very well made and is a must have.

Great product, but not what I needed.

I purchased the pillow for support under my knees when sleeping to replace an older, heavier, rectangular, inflatable pillow. The new pillow is great for head and neck support but did not work out for intended knee support use.

Very Comfortable

I purchased one for myself. My son (boy scout) liked it also, so I got him one. Lightweight and very, very adjustable. This is the lightest pillow I could find and I am glad I did.

Negative Reviews:

COST way too much for what you get

I consider myself a minimalist in terms of gear but at my age (51) when it comes to sleeping, comfort is a big priority. Pads, pillows and bags matter greatly. The idea for this pillow is good, but it needs more loft. For what you get the price is crazy expensive.
