I've seen the "travel pillows" or the "camp pillows" at the sporting goods stores. Basically fleece covered foam that you scrunch up to make a small pillow, not much smaller for packing. I was never impressed with them. What I wanted was a large pillow that can actually support my head and yet pack away very small with light weight.

This is it. Since it is inflatable you get a much larger support, that is adjustable as well. Not only that, it folds away to many times its size reduced! The memory foam pad really helps with smoothing out the pleats in the air bladder and with temperature control as well. The cover is nice and cool and feels very nice on skin.

The carry bag is large. basically a foutrh of the pillow size (The pillow is folded over twice to make a smaller rectangle), but let me assure you you can roll this baby much smaller and tighter if you need to squeeze it in somewhere.

The only thing I don't know is its durability. Being an inflatable product there is a concern that it may not hold up. So far I've only taken it on one backpacking trip and it was great, but for this price I want it to last thru many expeditions. maybe I'll remember to comae back and edit this with an update.

The air nozzle is just like a sleeping pad nozzle in quality (which is good) but smaller and tucks out of the way for comfort.

Kinda pricy, but it was what I was looking for!

I'm back after over a year and many nights and two long haul bus trips later (Yeah, it's perfect to throw in a small pack and use on the bus) and she holding up fine. I am not babying it either. So far about 15 nights camping and 6 days aboard a charter bus, and still going fine.

I ordered (as a gift) the 'Big Agnes Sleeping Giant Memory Foam Deluxe Pillow (Includes Air Pillow)' and 'Big Agnes Sleeping Giant Memory Foam Pillow Kit' thinking I was getting a) a pillow and b) the stuff that goes with it.
Unfortunately, the 'Deluxe Pillow' includes both the pillow AND the stuff that goes with it, while the 'Pillow Kit' does NOT include the pillow. And Amazon doesn't sell the pillow on its own.
So I'm returning the 'Pillow Kit' -- I recommend you not buy it unless you already own the pillow!
Otherwise, the product looks great, though I can't comment on its effectiveness because it's a gift.

Be sure you understand that this is only a cover and not a "full" pillow. I use this as a pillow after stuffing it with other clothes I pack in. Adds a nice cushion and you can use it as a little bag to keep items separated when in your pack.

This pillow is amazing. I use it backpacking every time I go. It is comfortable, adjustable, and hardly weighs anything which makes it perfect for carrying up a mountain. I use it while on the ground and in a hammock, and with it's foam pad it makes the pillow comfortable even when barely inflated while in the hammock. This pillow is the most comfortable addition to my pack.

I have used this pillow a few times since purchasing it. I love it. It packs away to almost nothing and is pretty darn comfy. You can adjust the firmness to suit your needs. It isn't as nice as the pillow on my bed (I felt I needed to say that after reading other reviews), but for a camping pillow it has exceeded my expectations. I haven't had it long enough to comment on the durability, but so far so good.

I take a week long hike on the Appalachian Trail twice a year. I am more comfort driven than a minimalist hiker, to me a pillow is a required item. I decided to upgrade my sleep system this year and got a Big Agnes bag. The bag combined with this pillow and a Thermarest Trail Pro pad make up the best sleep system I've ever used. I woke up each morning fully rested and ready to hit the trail for another days worth of hiking. The pillow packs small and adds very little weight to your pack. By far the best hiking pillow on the market.

Do note that this product is sold by the company "Sleeping Giant". The Pillow is not giant by any means. The pillow barely rises 3" off the ground. I will need 2 of these to make sure my shoulder doesnt ache in the morning as I sleep on my side.

Otherwise the product is pretty good.

Its very expensive but thats the story of Big Agnes, and they do make quality products. I'd highly recommend this over their air core pillow b/c its only a few dollars more and the memory foam makes all the difference. It has a clear inflatable part as opposed to the thicker, tougher air core material, but I think its actually better to use the clear on a pillow its quieter and a better texture. It was not thick enough for me, but putting a shirt or fleece under this whole pillow made it perfect and still extremely comfortable. I roll up this pillow IN my insulated air core pad and it all still easily fits in the sleeve for the air core pad, so essentially the pillow takes up no additional space if you have the pad already. The whole sleeping system is fantastic and SUPER comfortable. Wait till its on sale and buy the whole system.

My good friend, Liz, said to me one morning after camping out, "You know, Big Agnes should make a pillow out of that memory foam they use." She went on, "but it should blow up, like their pads, so it can pack real small." Yeah, Liz, they should and THEY DID. I had slept on it the night before and she eyed me jealously when I showed it off. I love this camp pillow. It so beats all others I've tried, and I've tried a few. Thanks BA, you've thought of everything!

The sleeping giant pillow is one of the best buys for those long backpacking trips. Though it isn't a full sized pillow, when it's inflated it gives you ample comfort for your head after a long days hike. The other great thing about this pillow is it packs down very small into it's own bag that comes with the pillow. For the price it's worth it.

Bottom line: Sleep well without having to worry about weight or space in your pack.
