    Super Minimalistic SEA TO SUMMIT PILLOW



    Here I go again with the tiny stuff. This is a virtually miniature inflatable pillow by Sea to Summit that packs up and fits in the palm of my little hand. That's small! And it weighs nothing -- like 3 ounces. With just a few puffs it inflates to 16.5"L x 11.5"W x 5.5"D (the large version).
    I believe it is overpriced ($45) and not the world's most comfortable camping pillow, but not bad. That said, if the packed size is your priority, this pillow is tough to beat.
    I got mine at Cabela's. Here's the link:

    Nice!

    Finding the right pillow, is such a personal thing.
    Took me years and many attempts to finally find one just right for me.

    With the hammock I've found I don't need a pillow. However, I was wanting a stuff sack to hold my hammock, stakes, straps and tarp in one. Well I found the Pillow Dry Bag from ZPacks so I get a stuff sack and in a pinch, a pillow. I'm awaiting it's arrival so I can't comment on actual comfort yet. It probably won't be the best pillow ever but it definitely wins the award for least amount of packed space.
    Do I really look like a guy with a plan...

    That is a neat pillow. My last solo trip with my Kwik Kamp I just used my jacket, etc for a pillow and my neck and shoulders were sore the whole time. Decided from now on I am taking a comfortable pillow along whatever it takes. That didn't used to bother me ..... something about a few more years on the body has made a difference.

    I can sleep on rocks, which I have as long as I have a good pillow.

    Every used a "rock for a pillow"?
    Several years ago I was backpacking with some of my kids and their friends in the Colorado back country. We had hiked the better part of the day and when we finally set up camp I realized that I'd forgot my pillow. So I found a good flat rock about has tall as my shoulder to the side of my head is. I took my jacket and wadded it up to form a cushion. I sleep on my side and I was surprised that this "make do" application worked so well. I slept like a baby.

    I've been using a el-cheapo vinyl inflatable pillow...no flocking...just plastic.
    It looks like a small raft.
    I used to stick it in a T-shirt until my wife made me a small pillowcase for it.
    When deflated, It's thin enough to roll up with the mattress, so it takes up virtually no room at all.

    I don't think it cost more than a couple of dollars.

    Just try and find one, though. They seem to have vanished from the shelves.
    I don't need a compass to know which way the wind shines.

    Exped medium air pillow is the one I use, it fits perfectly in 1 of those small zippered pillow protectors from Bed Bath & Beyond. That way is less noisy and doesn't slide around. I just deflate it and roll it with my hammock, takes very little room.
