    Exped Air Pillow is rated 4.35 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it First things first, get the large. Packed up it is still very small and barely weighs anything. Slip a t-shirt over it as a pillow case and you almost have the pillow you use at home in your own bed. It is a little bouncy of course compared to a regular pillow because it is an air pillow but not bad. No more using a coat or clothes as a pillow. It only takes two breaths to blow it up. It does have a patch kit but I have not used it yet. I am sure if you are not careful in the desert though that it is possibly you could puncture it, that's another reason for putting a t-shirt over it as a pillow case. This pillow seems a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Like another reviewer said if I lost it today I'd buy another one tomorrow. Just make sure you get the large.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pillow but... This pillow is by far the best air pillow around. I have zero complaints about the product but... The regular version of this pillow and the UL version are IDENTICAL in construction except for one detail. The UL version has a single inflate/deflate valve to save weight as opposed to the separate inflate and deflate valves of the regular version. Since this is the case, why does the UL version cost $10.00 MORE even though it has LESS content?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from wow I've been settling for snuggling up with a crumpled up hoodie or sweater for a few years now after having been really disappointed by other inflatable camp pillows. Since REI has such a simple return policy, I decided I had nothing to lose to give this exped pillow a try after reading the reviews, and was really pleasantly surprised. I ended up using this sleeping in my tent, sleeping in the airport, and sleeping on an airplane, in the past two weeks, and finding it really shockingly comfortable. I've never actually been able to sleep for even a moment on an airplane before. The last inflatable pillow I tried was so awful that it's been packed up and stored in a closet for the past two years while I used sweaters as pillows instead. Somehow this Exped pillow almost feels like a real pillow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Excellent pillow. Very easy to inflate. I like to put it inside of a t-shirt. Ahhh...comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for backpacking. Small and light Due to an old neck injury a backpacking pillow is essential for me on the trail. I tried two different models at varying price points and the more expensive Exped won out by a mile. The cheaper product did not hold air and was returned. I have used this pillow on several trips and never had an issue. The inflate valve has a little knob that can be depressed with a finger after inflating to get just the right amount of air in the pillow. This is definitely a great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fine choice for comfort I bought this to replace a cheap air pillow that I got at a department store. I've found that I like it nearly full of air. It adds enough cush to be about as nice as my pillows at home. I tuck the pillow into the hood of my sleeping bag & I'm set for the night. It is light weight, easy to blow up, and fit's in a nook or cranny inside my bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pillow Ever! After trying the Cocoon Hyperlite pillow I was very skeptical of an inflatable pillow. I decided to give the Exped a try. I am glad I did! This pillow is very light and inflates in seconds. I just got done spending 4 days on Mt Hood and this pillow performed perfect. IT is great for side/back and stomach sleepers. For the big guys, you can turn this pillow on its side and use the dip to put your head. Never loses air! Can't say enough good things about this pillow!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far I'm a person who definitely needs something to prop under my head when I sleep and so far I've been pretty happy with this pillow. It gives much more even and firm support than a lump of clothes jammed in a sleeping bag compression sack. It does slip a little around a bit on my REI inflatable mattress pad, and it's too big to fit at the top of my mummy bag--but generally I work it out and it stays under my head during the night. The only other thing I'd really need is for it to be a bit thicker because I have big bony shoulders and I'm a side sleeper. I have the large and for most people and definitely anyone who sleeps on their back it's probably perfect. It certainly is an awesome small size for backpacking.
