We haven't taken it backpacking yet but it feels like it will be a luxurious upgrade. I bought it for my partner and I'm already a bit jealous.
Solid pillow that could benefit from some improvements
I really like this pillow, but as other reviewers have said it flattens out quite easily. I have had good success sticking my hand in the hole in the center and sleeping on it that way, it definitely helps. However I think the best solution might be stuffing a down jacket or something similar in the cavity to combat the deflation. Still more comfortable than an inflatable pillow for me though!
Great design but wish there was a drawstring
I use this for car camping and by car camping I mean sleeping in my car the night before big days in the mountains. The pillow stuffs into an integrated stuff sack which is great for keeping the part you sleep on clean while it's bouncing around in the car on the way to the trailhead. When you unstuff the pillow the stuff sack part leaves an open void in the middle of the pillow which is great because you can fill it with socks / t-shirt etc to achieve whatever firmness you want. Seems like there are lots of complaints about the pillow not being firm enough because people don't realize to do this, but it's the way a lot of camping / backpacking pillows work. My only complaint is that the stuff sack portion doesn't have a drawstring closure, so it tends to unstuff itself if it bounces around too much on a dirt road. And at night if I roll around too much the extra clothes I put in will sometimes start to come out.
Awesome Luxury Item for Backpacking if you like the feel of Down Pillows
Super comfortable goose down pillows that matches the comfort of my goose down pillows at home! I have neck issues and makes a difference on the pillow I sleep with. I took the advice of another reviewer and got a small (toddler size) pillow case to throw it into and did wonders to help with preventing it from slipping around and creating better loft. I got the Pobybaby pillow cases on Amazon (16"x12" was the closest I could find to the recommended 11"x15"). If you're handy you could sew your own cases. My sister and brother in law loved it so much they also ordered their own. For people who like firmer feeling pillows in general, this would not be for you.
I couldn’t keep this pillow because the material was so slick it slipped out of the size appropriate pillowcase. Suggest that it be made out of a more sturdy and less slick material.
