    Therm-a-Rest Compressible Pillow is rated 4.5667 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I recently took this with me on a BikePacking trip and love how it folds into itself! It easily packed into one of my bike panniers along with my Sleeping pad & sleeping bag That's how small it packs away! When I got my tent put up, I just took my self inflating sleep pad and pillow out and left them to do their thing, while I was at the shower house! I'm so glad I purchased this! A trip with limited space and weight doesn't have to be uncomfortable! After a good nights rest all packed back up easily! I just ordered my husband one for our next trip! I have the medium size, but am going to order the large sizes to have for car camping trips as even with those camping supplies can take up alot of room and these are so compact!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ahhh! I traveled with this pillow for 10 months and can say without exaggeration that this is the best piece of gear I own. Weight weenies can keep their 1 ounce plastic bags that they call pillows. If you're not the type who can sleep anywhere, anytime, and on anything, get yourself one of these beauties. For me, a good night sleep easily outweighs any extra weight or bulk. Pros: 1. Almost as comfortable as your pillow at home. No joke. 2. Very durable. After 10 months of constant use, mine still has plenty of loft left. 3. Doesn't leave your head rolling and bouncing around all night the way inflatable pillows do. Cons: 1. It is bulky. So what. 2. Do not try to wash this thing if you need to use it within the next week. It can take literally days to dry, even in high temperatures. Just spot clean it. 3. It can take a little while to get up to full loft. Just make sure you take it out as soon as you set up your tent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camping and Travel Pillow After using the Small size of this pillow for camping for a few years, I've finally upgraded to the Large size. If you value comfort over ultimate packability, it's definitely worth it. It packs down to about 30% larger than the Small, but when it's fully expanded, it's as comfortable as a standard pillow. Important note: in order for the pillow to fully expand, you need to knead it, and pull apart the small foam pieces, to give them room to expand. Then, let it sit for 20 minutes, and you're ready to relax!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fluffy! When I received this pillow in the mail, I was a bit disappointed. It was flat and lumpy, and pretty pathetic. I decided to wash and dry it to see if that would revive the fluff. It did! The pillow is incredibly fluffy and comfortable now. The only down side is that to be able to use it in my mummy sleeping bag, I have to scrunch down deeper into my bag so it will fit in the hood. But that was expected since it is rectangular and not rounded. Overall it is a great purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I needed to replace my old pillow and comfort and convenience were important considerations. I sleep on a variety of surfaces, from the ground to wooden platforms. The pillow is great for all around support and warmth for my head and neck. Get the large size for best comfort!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slept like a baby I take this camping, whether in my backpack or my saddle bags. It doesn't take up much room, weighs nothing, and is extremely comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good pillow! I picked up a medium for backpacking trips because it's light-weight and compresses well. When rolled up it fits between my pack and neck while on the move for extra neck comfort or, I just dangle it off the pack. It also fits in the bottom pocket of my 68L pack along with my sleeping bag. When sleeping I fold it in half and it fits perfectly in the "mummy" head portion of my sleeping bag. It stays folded in half throughout the night because of the synch cord, no matter how much you toss and turn. I usually prefer two pillows and found that on a recent 5 day trip this little pillow did the trick. Another great use is for long flights. I found that I could form this thing in to many different configurations weather I had an aisle, middle or window seat.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable But Bulky This is by far one of the more comfortable compressible pillows on the market. The main reason I looked at this pillow is because I appreciate backpacking with some of the comforts of home--needless to say, I am not an ultralight backpacker. Although I enjoy having some of the comforts of home on the trail, I do still try to keep my pack on the light side. Since this pillow did not add too much weight to my pack, I went in for the purchase. I purchased the medium pillow and have had the pleasure of using it on a couple of backcountry expeditions. Generally, I unroll the pillow as soon as I set up my tent so it has time to fluff up to its full potential. When packing, it is very easy to compress. In my opinion the only down side of the medium pillow is that it is still a bit on the bulky side even when it is fully compressed. For that reason, I think this may be a pillow more suitable for car or base camping. However, if you do not have much in your pack as it is, this may not be an issue. I will likely travel back to REI in the near future and see how the small pillow compares. If that is still bulky, I may look into other options.
