Big Comfort in a Tiny Package

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this pillow last summer for a camping trip to Moab and it is by far one of my best/favorite pieces of gear.

I am a small human so I try to pack light when I go on camping/backpacking trips. The Apollo Pillow weighs in at a mind blowing 2.8 ounces, so you won't notice this in your pack at all. It also packs down to half the size of a beer can, if not smaller. I can actually fit it inside of my air pad bag with the air pad as well, to consolidate everything but I usually just clip the two together so I don't lose the pillow! (probably the only downside is the risk of losing it) Inflating it takes maybe 2-3 breaths and you can adjust it to the amount of squish level you like. Just as easy to deflate.

It was more comfortable than I expected it to be as well. This is an amazingly light and comfortable minimalist pillow and everyone should have it as part of their adventure gear.
