Also, I got the regular size. I'm a person of average size, a side sleeper, and it's totally sufficient for my needs. For me personally, I don't see any reason to move up to a large.
.................HOPE THIS HELPS!
If you are a serious outdoorsman/woman don't buy this product. You'll be charged a premium price for something that is certainly not premium quality. If I'd have known that the lifespan of this product was so short I would have bought a cheaper one.
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 curvature of the pillow makes it sit under your head and support your neck perfectly. It is also nice and small. The two benefits are-
1)You won't get dizzy blowing it up. Three breaths, tops. It is only going to take your Cub Scout three breaths to inflate this sucker.
2)The small size makes it work well with mummy-type bags. My bag is actually a surplus Army 4 piece system with green bag, black bag, and bivvy cover. It happens to work fantastic with it. A must have for Armed Forces. If you think I can't count, the fourth piece is the stuff sack. Those don't have anything to do with the actual sleeping bit.
I'm slightly concerned with bacteria inside the bladder, but I am almost positive that it will be as easy to maintain as a CamelBak.
If you want to be comfy, get this. I've already used it for two trips (a weekend and a week long one) with much success. And everyone else was fairly jealous too.
Update: after how comfy it was, I decided to use it until it failed. That day came approx. Sept 10, 2017. So treating it like a damn normal pillow for one year and five months of daily abuse, and it finally gave up. It developed two very small holes at the edge of a seam that just cannot be patched. However, I have never had an air mattress last a weekend, much less this long. Will be purchasing again. Cannot wait for my new one to arrive.

Small minus is you can hear the slight 'crunchy' sound of the inflatable plastic bit, but honestly, I got used to that in about 30seconds. Truthfully, I prefer it to my normal pillow :)
Tested in the field, and now one of my fave bits of gear. Not hard to put back in it's little bag either. Be careful you don't loose it...
it's sooo SMALL!
