Awesome Little Pillow
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Reg
Getting geared up for a summer of intense outdoors activity (hopefully). Tested this out with my current sleeping gear and it is an AMAZING match. I have a Klymit Pillow X (nifty little pillow, though it has some problems, e.g.), and as a side-sleeper this pillow puts the X to shame (though, it was designed with absolute ultralight style packing, so comfort has to take a backseat to its features which suit the other purposes perfectly).
That being said, after a little while of resting on the pillow, it can feel a bit thin where you've rested most (which can be remedied by simply using another part of the pillow, even the smaller size has ample room for your head. The larger would probably have even less of a problem). As well, it does not store incredibly tiny (not wallet-sized like the Pillow X), but it is still only about the size of a packed double hammock, and is almost weightless.
Long story short, if you catch this thing on sale (I'd even argue for standard price, as my comparison pillow was $25) and you aren't shooting for the absolute ultralight packing style: this is a fantastic deal. It's not perfectly comfortable, it's not perfectly small, but it does come kinda close while remaining cheaper than the rest.
