Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom20 very comfortable
Had to wash and dry as instructed to make it fluffy. Afterwards, it remained soft even after being compressed again. No smell and didn't get hot.

The pillow has a nice soft cover and is a perfect size for travel. It seems a little lumpy, but perhaps that will lessen with use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StrongInandOut comfy and practical!
We ordered these for the packability and got way more than we expected! They puff up nicely and I was even more delighted to discover that thermarest makes them from the leftover material in the sleeping pad manufacturing. Wins all the way around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cmwayner SO comfy
This pillow puffs up very well, so it gives me great support for side sleeping. I had no neck pain after using it for two nights, and tent camping is usually hard on my neck. It's just the right size for camping and for storage, and it rolls up to about 1/3 its full size. The cinching drawstring is easy to use.
Definitely wash and dry it first for maximum loft.

Rated 3 out of 5 by shpingmom Small but functional
The pillow compresses into a small pouch which would be great for camping. It is a little small (even when fluffed) to be a comfortable pillow, but it is functional. The material is attractive and looks durable. My teen daughter used it at camp without complaint.

So I bought this now that I am aging and find the nalgene with clothes wrapped around it not so comfy any more. The pillow is very well made. I wish it was firmer. I understand it is not a temperpedic or fru-fru down pillow, but a bit more firmness it would be a 5+. Great concept. Almost great execution. The scrap therma rest material is nice, but it does flatten as the night goes on for there is no air to hold it like the sleeping pad. If I could fill the center with some air, it would be perfect. Better than inflatables. Better than taking the wife's down pillow. Certainly better than using clothes.

What a snazzy, functional little pillow this is. It's large enough to be comfortably useful and small enough to be portable; and it's attractive. I haven't had to wash it yet but I'm sure it will come out just fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bendite Expensive for chunks of foam
Shame on me for not reading the description better but I was expecting more of the Thermarest inflatable system that they are known for. This pillow is just chunks of foam. They take a bit to expand. Support was OK once expanded but once you set your head on the pillow you hear noise from the foam compressing. I just couldn't get to sleep. Also, once expanded, it was hard to compress the pillow into a small size again.

My wife and I purchased these pillows in preparation for an overnight kayaking trip with the Outdoor Discovery School. These pillows are not thick enough on their own, but when you place a stuff sack under them, they provide enough additional comfort to justify bringing them along. They also will make great car pillows on those long trips to the next outdoor adventure.
