Edit: so just out of curiosity I filled the pillow with air and stuck it under water to determine which valve was leaking so maybe I can superglue it but bizarrely... the air bubbles are coming through the "Sea To Summit" lettering! I give up.
I ditched the stuff sack and just toss the pillow inside my sleeping bag.
First off, I don't know why Sea To Summit's advertised weight is 3.7 oz. / 105g
The actual weight is 4.2 oz/ 119g and the label that comes with the pillow says 4.0 oz 114g, I just wanted to point that out in case any gram weenies read this.
Specs from the manufacturer:
Length......... .16.5 in
Height/Depth.. 5.1 in
Weight.......... 3.7 oz/105g
Stuffed Size... 3.1 x 3.3 in/7.8 x 8.3cm
The Aeros is fairl thick so may appeal more to side sleepers.
You can't beat the weight and size its about 3" x 3-1/2" this would fit inside a 450 ml mug.
Inflation took 6 average puffs, there is a three way valve type thing or at least that's what I call it.
You pull on one tab that says inflate to inflate, open the other tab that says deflate to... yep you guessed it, deflate.
There is some sort of check valve that allows air to enter but not escape this not only makes filling easy but allows you to adjust the firmness of the pillow by pushing the valve button in with your finger.
I fully inflated mine and after about 30 minutes let out a bit of air to adjust for my comfort level.
To deflate you just pull the deflate tab and all the air whooshes out in about a second or two, I then roll up the pillow start stuffing in the stuff sack making sure the deflate is still open and facing the opening of the stuff sack, when its almost stuffed all the way in just close the valve tab and secure with the cinch cord and clip.
The price tag is a bit high but if you are trying to save some weight and precious real estate in your pack, this is a good choice.
So far nothing has beat my Flannel Camp pillow, that is the most comfortable pillow I have ever slept on.

Loving this pillow.
I found my sweet spot with this pillow.
Inflation and deflating is a breeze a few puffs of air and its ready to go, deflating takes a second.
I ditched the stuff sack and store the pillow directly in my sleeping bag before stuffing inside a compression stuff sack.

Rain, with a tiny bit of Snow and Hail.
Three days on this pillow, I only inflated it the original day and it lost a little bit of air due to cold.
I have been playing around with a spongier fill and I prefer it over the harder inflation.
It took a while for me to find my sweet spot as I like the pillow fully inflated for height but it was a bit hard and it felt like I could not get my head high enough up on the pillow, before my shoulders hit the pillow, due to no taper (too thick).
Well I found My Sweet Spot! I fully inflate, then deflate so its spongier feeling, stuff between my Thermarest mat and Western Mountaineering Megalite bag, there is minimal slippage.. and it is extremely comfortable.
Toasty warm at 35° and very comfortable at 65°
Pillow is usually kept between the sleeping bag and the air mattress, it is on top for the picture. There is minimal movement and I need to tuck it back under my head when I toss and turn a bit.
The pillow is at its most comfortable if you stay centered on the pillow.
The Aeros is stored inside the sleeping bag with no stuffsack when deflated.
The pillow I received does not leak. I have kept it blown up for a week at a time to test it, and found that for the most part no air escapes. If blown up full enough and slept on daily the pillow will lose some pressure, but not enough to be noticeable over the course of a single night.
The large version of this pillow weighs exactly 4 oz on my scale without the storage sack, though my scale may not be the world's most accurate. The construction is of an internal bladder, a highly rubber-ish material that reminds me of some kinds of pool toys or of a malleable kind of vegetable resin, surrounded by a very soft layer not unlike a quality cotton shirt.
Positives of the pillow are that it is comfortable at any level of inflation, and I am still trying to figure out what I like the best. People wanting an ultra-firm pillow will find that this one can become quite hard if fully inflated. Those wanting a softer pillow will find that the rubber bladder stretches more than other pillows' typically rigid plastic. The bladder is also remarkably quiet compared to the hard crackling produced by other pillows. The pillow DOES roll a bit more than I expected it would, when deflated, but not too much for me not to use, and I have only use a few pillows that were better. Finally the cover is soft enough that I do not need to wrap it or bring a pillowcase, as I do with other pillows. Even better, the material grips on to a Buff headgear so well that I can lay it on top of the pillow and wake up in the morning to find that all of my tossing and turning (I am big for the tossing and turning) hasn't displaced the thing at all. A very comfortable surface!
So at first impression the pillow would seem to be the culmination of a very long search for the perfect pillow. But alas, one of THE MOST stupid design flaws that I have ever seen severely hold the pillow back. First, let me say that the rubber bladder is a compromise. The same characteristics that make it stretchy and crackle-free make it very susceptible to friction and in turn VERY susceptible to puncture and tearing. The cloth cover mitigates most of this, but it is doubtless that this pillow will eventually perforate. That SHOULDN'T be a problem, as it will probably hold a patch very well, but Sea to Summit, in what I imagine to be no more than cost-cutting measures, did not design the cover to be remove-able. it is attached at the air nozzle, where tampering may destroy the seal, and everywhere else is seams and stitches. This means that to repair the pillow, the seams must be opened up in order to bring the bladder into view. Then follows the question, should someone undertake the repair, of WHICH seam to cut. The only two big enough to draw the whole bladder out would each unravel half the pillowcase! Whatever course one takes, there is sure to be a lot of needlework to be done, and on a material that does not look to take kindly to bad stitch jobs.
Other complaints include the lack of grip for opening up the deflation valve. Holding on the fabric will doubtlessly degrade the condition of the pillow rapidly, so one has to dig into the cracks of the valve and pry where it is safe to tug around, which is not as easy as it should be. The inflation valve is much better. Also, the pillow slopes upward, but for air pillows it should not. Other pillow manufacturers have already figured this out that it is better to slope downward or to make the pillow flat, but Sea to Summit here, too, seems to have designed without much investigation or thought. I reverse the pillow to make it more comfortable, but I sure do with that the curve and valve were not on the opposite sides that I want.
In summary, this pillow seems to be the result of one good idea put into production before it could be researched into a good design. The contours are not right, the valve is not yet right, and the bladder is only repairable by trading the integrity of its casing, which is simply inexcusable for an outdoors product. Still the pillow provides a comfortable sleep (even with bad contours!) without much noise, and at a reasonable weight, so it is not a terrible product anyway, I suppose.
It all really comes down to what someone wants out of their pillow. This is arguably the most comfortable that I have used, and could have been a total winner in that regard with a little more R&D. If the buyer is not bivy-ing and especially if their shelter includes both a tent and a groundsheet, then the dangers of perforation may be slim enough to argue for this purchase over others. Otherwise, one should consider the ultralight version of this pillow, with an exposed bladder, or another brand of pillow altogether.
