    Cocoon Sleeping Bag Hood Pillow is rated 4.3438 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and effective This pillow is very light weight and compresses to a tiny package, but is not too small or thin once you get it out and inflated. It does take a bit of adjustment to get the right ratio of firmness/give. They designed a small depression into the middle to hold your head, so you don't loll off of it. I'm a side sleeper and found that this pillow gives me plenty of height to be comfortable, but I'm also small framed - if you've got really broad shoulders it might not work as well for you as it does for me. In the compression sack it's about as big as a can of soda, but you can save even that little amount of space in your pack by putting it flat in the hood of your sleeping bag and stuffing them together. I'd give this 4.5 stars if I could. I generally don't give 5 stars because nothing is 100% perfect.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Small and lightweight but deflates I bought this to use this summer while backpacking and it didn't last me two weeks before it would deflate completely overnight. The product failing was frustrating, but so was using it when it worked. When inflated, I found the pillow to be too big to be comfortable under my neck. When I tried letting out air to fit me better, I discovered that it makes an annoying plastic like crinkling noise with every movement while trying to sleep when not fully inflated. The pros of this item were that it was light weight and packed very small. I will be returning it on my next trip to REI.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astounding Looking for a legit ultralight pillow? This is it. I've tried them all out or at least weighed them all out. This packs out at 3.7 ounces. Combines inflatable pillow with some synthetic cushion to make a real pillow. I've taken it with me on a 6 day winter backpacking trip through Yosemite recently, it was great. Just packed it in with my clothes or sleeping system compression sacks. Packs down to nothing and weighs not much. Two sided, so that if its too slippery on one surface the other surface has traction. Also its shaped for a mummy bag, it cuts off the top two unused edges.If you want a pillow and are kicking it lightweight backpacking style.... this is it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Versatile I bought this pillow to go backpacking in Europe as something that was comfortable and easy to pack and shove somewhere. I used it on the plane, on the trains, and in the hostels. I was able to inflate it to stabilize my neck or to sleep a full night in a bed although, it did take some time to get it just right. Since returning home I have used it to sleep in my hammock and just as an all around camp pillow. I have definitely gotten my money's worth out of it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful At the beginning of the summer my father and I were camping in Mongolia. We entered from China into the Gobi and traveled all the way up North to the border with Siberia. We went from desert heat to it snowing the last night. I'm really picky about pillows. At home I usually sleep with many. I was surprised at how much I liked this little pillow. When we were in the desert I slept on the nylon side and my face stayed cool and when we entered the cold mountains I used the soft fabric side and it stayed nice and warm. Super easy to fit in anywhere. I was always able to get it back into its little bag it came with. I will definitly keep using this pillow.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No durability Not that comfortable, not durable at all, but just the right size both inflated and when stored. This just has a plastic lining that is surrounded by fabric. I found it took a lot of messing with to get the fabric around the lining just right so the pillow was actually comfortable. I've had it for less than a year and it's already broken. I've taken it on maybe six trips. It has a slow leak in the lining. It also takes a long time to dry and traps dirty easily. This would be a great pillow for car/plane rides but not suitable for backcountry camping.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I had hoped for I purchased this after seeing one of my Scouts with it. It was small, compact and full of comfortable potential. Just what I was looking for to go backpacking. Unfortunately, I really couldn't find the right level of inflation to make it comfortable for me - even with it practically completely deflated. My head never felt truly "in" the pillow - more like ready to roll off to one side or the other. I really wanted this pillow to work for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hiker pillow This is a great and light hiker pillow. It is shaped to fit inside the mummy hood of your sleeping bag. On really cold nights this might not work, because you would need all of that mummy hood to surround your head, not your pillow. But I usually wear a fleece hat when I sleep. If you try to put this pillow under your sleeping bag hood, it will likely slip or move out from under you. Some people complain about the comfort of this pillow, but the only way to make it more comfortable would be to add loft/cushion which would take up space. I'd rather have it be mostly inflatable so it packs small. You can always put a fleece jacket or clothing on top to increase comfort.
