Favorite piece of backpacking gear
I have been using one of these pillows for about 5 years now. It has been one of my staple pieces of gear, I have replaced many other things in my backpacking kit but this item really stands the test of time. Light weight and comfortable, even as I am transitioning to lighter and lighter gear, I can't ever see replacing or leaving it at home. The shape of this pillow is perfect for supporting my head and neck, whether I sleep on my side or on my back. The only thing you have to sort out is how much air to put in it. Too much can be uncomfortable. I also added a bungie cord to the corner holes so I can loop it around my sleeping pad so I don't lose it in the middle of the night.
Lightest and most comfortable
I have been using these for 2 years now and they are simply the best backcountry pillows you can get. Lightweight, compact and comfortable. I have tried many other options, such as down pillows, compressible, and other inflatables. This is the best yet, the contoured design cradles your neck and head like an orthopedic pillow and you can adjust the size and firmness with air pressure. I wound up buying a second one at a MontBell store in Tokyo because hotel pillows where so hard. Now I keep one in my suitcase when traveling just in case.
Better than rolled-up clothes
This rolls up so tiny that I had to tie it to my pad to make sure I didn't lose it. It was great to be able to tie it down to my pad so it would not roll away as happens with rolled-up clothes or other pillows. Haven't used enough to test durability, but seems OK.
"Borrowed on campout-wont' go back"
On a week long campout in the Boundary Waters when a fellow camper loaned me this pillow... Comfortable, easy to pack, lightweight, excellent product.... I am ordering one for me and my son this week... Not sure as of yet the durability, but for the one week I was absolutely impressed.
Mont-Bell U.L. Comfort System Pillow
Used for two weeks at Philmont(Boy Scout Ranch in NM). The comfort system was used with a granite gear pillow stuff sack.
Very light and worked well. The granite gear pillow stuff sack also held my Therarest prolite mattresses.
Mont-Bell UL Pillow
Replaced Thermorest's Prolite stuff sack with Granite Gear pillow stuff sack. Then use Mont-bell pillow inside Gear Gear pillow stuff sack.
Reduced weight and a good night's sleep
How sweet it is!
You can't go wrong with this pillow
This pillow is awesome - super comfy, takes up virtually no room in your pack, it's big enough even for larger heads - you'll never sleep on your jacket again!
Don't camp without one
This was surprisingly comfortable and packs down to the size of a wallet. Don't go camping without it!
Super compact and provides comfort and support, better than a sack full of dirty clothes in my opinion.
simple air pillow
you could get by with your rolled up clothes,but it does stay put inside your mummy's hood
