Rated this product ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ because it is lightweight, easy to blow up and deflate however it might have been a good idea to get the large as a side sleeper. The regular just doesn’t quite sit right.

note: You can buy this cheaper elsewhere, however I bought several items so it worked out cheaper overall.
A compact and very light pillow with a good feel to it with its own handy drawstring bag. This pillow is great for camping as it gives really good head, neck and spine support, however is definitely not that versatile.
In England I had a small soft downy pillow and needed to use my backpack and clothes to make a decent pillow. While it was okay, I did miss a pillow so opted for the luxury of the Areos pillow. The pillow is so small and compact it will take up no room at all in my backpack.
As a side sleeper the curve is great and I love the Brushed 50D polyester knit which is very soft and durable.
I found the valve to be really convenient. Inflating this takes no time at all – 5 seconds maybe, and it features a one-way inflation valve, which means it won’t start going down between breaths.
To deflate, just pull the deflation plug out from the same handy valve. It is immediately ready to fold and roll up.
Now I haven’t tested this in the field yet as I am still waiting on my Zpacks Duplex Tent and will post an update once I have.
