I've tried a LOT of different pillows. This is absolutely the best one I've ever had. The Nemo Fillo: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

It has internal memory foam, inflates, and folds down really small. It's expensive and worth it.

Thanks!

I may have to pick one of these up. I use a memory foam pillow at home.

I guess I'll throw in my 2 bits. Really into MC camping and have been stuffing clothing into a fleece sac for a pillow .Bought a nemo inflatable pillow cause it packs small and is comfortable. . Been using it in bed at home for a week to check it out . At first the rustling noise bothered me but have gotten use to it ( probably its only down side for some ) Packs water bottle size blows up flat not balloonish you can adjust the height and the cover material is comfortable.. I Kinda like nemo stuff . I have the Nemo 3 man ( person :0) tent and love it for the bike . 2 Alcan trips with it .. Our son and his wife made a coast to coast trip with theirs and they like it . Sounds like a pitch for Nemo I know but their 3 what ever tent has sure treated me right and the pillow looks like it will work for me .

On the 2 week rally ride to Salem I realized I didn't bring a pillow. I did bring a cheap motorcycle cover for the times I thought the motorcycle might be in foul weather while camping. I kept the cover in a ziploc bag when riding.

Turns out that the cover, stuffed inside a ziploc, stuffed inside a t-shirt makes an OK pillow. Cheap too.

Exped air pillow. I got mine from REI.

.......shu
I recently upgraded from one of those to the Big Agnes Sleeping Giant pillow.

Inflatable bladder plus memory foam. Ahhh.

Nemo

+100 for the Nemo. Memory foam, inflatable, mini bungee web at the back, (to hold a folded up sweatshirt or such), the small pack sack is permanently attached to the back. When packed it takes up the space of a can of Coke. Like all Nemo gear, it's brilliantly thought out and unfortunately spendy ($45.00) Oddly, worth it.

Went to 2 Rallies this summer. Salem and Paonia in Colorado.

I went to walmart and purchased a full size bed pillow. $2.50!
Actually was able to compress it into the sleeping bag stuff sack.

I have a pillow sort of like that



Magallan pillow from Academy, it's cheap and comfy. 7$ and they do online ordering. According to the page it'll give you cancer, that's how you know it's good.
