I put my coat or other clothing items inside my dry bag for a comfortable virtually no extra weight pillow. Sometimes I wrap the outside with a hoody.

If you're looking for something specific, just PM me and I'll post it up here.
Thanks Mark. That looks good to go with my BA bag. I'll PM you if I have any more questions

I stole a Tempur-Pedic memory foam (polyurethane foam) pillow from my wife cuz she wasn't using it and it's been awesome! It is 12"x 17" and 2" thick. I fold it in half and it works great. Very comfortable. Rolled up, it measures 12" long x 4 1/2" in diameter. Perfect!

To reiterate for probably the billionth time, this.

I picked up two of these from Bed Bath and Beyond. Smash down pretty good in my dry bay with sleeping bag and some dry clothes.

http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/prod...p?SKU=14477195

get the washable cover also
http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=109101

Pillow is fairly firm and very comfortable. Not the smallest thing in the world but it still smashes down good and bounces back for good resting comfort.

For years I have carried a down pillow with me. A real one, not synthetic. It will pack down enough to put it in a small tank bag. In order to make it firm, you can carry a small pillow case and stuff the pillow in it. I take it with me on any trip, car of bike.

Exped air pillow. I got mine from REI.

Tempurpedic rolled into a stuff sack.

Been traveling like that for years. 100 nights traveling last year made my pillow important for a good nights sleep. Not minimalist, but with three herniated cervical discs, I need a solid pillow. I am ordering that travel size though. I'll call that downsizing.

Do you use your sleeping bag?
Then think again.

I have a thermarest that I'm not overly fond of...
Some great ideas in this thread, I'll probably try one of the exped air pillows this spring
