    Slept great with this pillow. Threw a down jacket in and it worked well.

    Exactly what I wanted!

      It's light weight and very soft. It arrived in perfect condition and I'm happy with the size. I'll be able to fit multiple clothing items inside for a nice plush pillow. Thanks!

      Great idea

        For some reason I always end up giving my pillow away to someone. No I just throw them this and say, " stuff it full" your welcome" No need to give up your pillow anymore. Small enough to pack and soft enough to sleep on.

        Pillow too small for our purposes

          Cute little pillow case, but we needed pillow cases for a regular sized pillow. These pillow cases are well made, but very tiny, like airplane sized tiny. We returned the pillow cases.

          Cool as both sides of the pillow

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          Picked this up last summer before a backpacking trip, basically just to have a washable case to keep my Therm-A-Rest Compressible Pillow clean. It fits and works like a charm, basically weighs nothing, and feels more like soft, comfortable, and cool sateen cotton.

          Another thing I'm stoked on is I just picked up an inflatable pillow (Exped Air Pillow UL M - pictured below) and it fits perfectly! Can't wait to test out the combo this summer.

          How much does this weigh without the packaging?

          Best Answer

          Thermarest reports the weight at 1 ounce without packaging.

          Great for backpacking

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          This case is great for using over inflatable pillows to add a little comfort. It is also handy to have around in case your inflatable pillow springs a leak. It weighs next to nothing so it won't weigh you down on the trail.


            Super comfy and easy to take off to wash. Seems to be great quality. I even like the color...

            Pretty Sweet

              I got this because I am always looking for a lightweight pillow option while backpacking. I found that this works pretty well with just about anything packed into it, i used my down sweater and it was pretty comfy. My only complaint was that it doesnt do a great job of holding whatever you put into it in the bag, i found the fillings sneaking their way out consistently.

              Nice CaSE

                I have used this a couple of times. It is light weight, soft and comfortable. It is not real big, but my down jacket fits inside real can add additional soft clothing as needed. If I move around too much, stuff does come out of the case - but that's probably me. Gave it 4 stars only because I haven't washed it enough to test for quality of seams, etc.
