Once upon a time, a pillow wouldn’t have made it on to our backpacking list as the size and weight just wouldn’t have been justifiable. Times change, though, and the minimal weight and space taken up inside your pack by options like the Air Head Pillow are well worth it for the comfort provided. This inflatable, ergonomic pillow has a cozy brushed exterior and synthetic fill that maximizes comfort. The integrated valve makes inflation and deflation easy. We’re huge fans of this 5.6 ounce pillow. If you’re a more finicky weight-saver, check out the Air Head Down Pillow or the Air Head Pillow Lite and trade a little comfort for a couple of ounces.
