Cushions your head and saves ounces in your pack.
Made of the same smooth, breathable, and durable nylon taffeta as Eagles Nest Outfitters' hammocks, and offered in an array of coordinating colors, the ParaPillow feels and looks like a padded extension of your hammock or sleeping bag. Its high-loft fill cushions your head for a comfortable night's sleep after a day of trail trekking, and compresses into the included compact stuff sack for easy transport. If you are counting ounces and trying to save space in your backpack, the ParaPillow is the company's lightest weight pillow, and it packs down into a compact stuff sack.

- Q & A
Not your space saver
I was pretty disappointed to find out how small this pillow was once I saw how large the stuff sack was. I think it is marginally more comfortable than the inflatable pillows, however the size difference throws my recommendation heavily towards an inflatable one. I have ordered the Sea to Summit Aeros ultralight pillow to replace this one in my pack. This pillow has become nothing more than a spare for me.
Doesn't pack up small
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
The pillow itself looks like its great, but the deal breaker for me was that it does not pack up very small. Picture rolling the pillow and stuffing it into the sack. I returned this and camped a week without a pillow in a hammock and did not miss it at all. 3 stars because it is adequate for the job its intended for, but that's about it.
