Yep!

I sleep on my leather jacket or stuff clothes into a stuffsack. Generally, I'm awake just long enough to set up camp and eat something, so maybe I'm not the right demographic I camp to sleep until first light and seem to do it alone more than with any other riders.

I use one of these.

With this pillow, my LuxuryLite cot, and a partially inflated Therm-A-Rest, I sleep as well as I do at home.

I just picked up a memory foam travel pillow from wal mart for something like $7. I have only used it a couple of nights but I like it so far. The added benefit it is expands to take up any extra space in the pannier.

I sleep on my Camelbak. I blow it up with a bit of air so that it's somewhat firm, but still has a bit of give to it. With a t-shirt or fleece or something thrown over it, it is damn comfy.

Can someone post a picture or two of the BigAgnes pillow with the memory foam and maybe the cover on it? I have a HogPark bag and this looks like the one I need. Does the pillow get too warm at night with the foam? I tend to.... um perspire a little bit at night when it's hot. It seems like any kinda foam would make that worse for me.

Nemo by far

Did someone Say Nemo...

By far the best, combines air and down, packs small and if you find them too small use the tie ropes to ad volume with clothing.

Very comfy, no plastic noises when you move.

I use Airhawk (on and off the bike), it's very comfortable as a pillow.

Standard cotton pillowcase with Alaskan sheepskin rolled up inside. As I always take the sheepskin on long rides the only thing extra is the pillowcase. I prefer the cotton texture over a nylon stuff sack.

I've been using an old slumber jack compressible pillow for years.
To soft yes but I roll up my pants and sleep like baby.

Alaska Leather Sheepskin Buttpad works great for a pillow . . . . . . .

Dual purpose stuff is wunnerful!

Rush to the bottom consumerism!

Don't hate me for the waste but if I am going to a Rally or other destination that I am going to be staying in one campsite for more than a few days I just find the nearest Wally World or Target and buy a honkin' big home pillow. They are under 10 buck and well worth it. At the end of the trip I just leave it at the campsite.

Chris - Pics and info on their site here: https://www.bigagnes.com/Products/De...moryFoamPillow. IMO it doesn't sleep hot - I used it at the last two MOA rallies (warm/hot at night) without issue.

If you're looking for something specific, just PM me and I'll post it up here.

Another vote for the Exped pillow. I've tried a bunch of other alternatives and this is my favorite. Same goes for their sleeping pads.

I've never understood using your airhawk or sheepskin for a pillow. Your sweaty ass has been farting on it for days and weeks, now you're gonna bury your face in it for eight hours? Seriously?
