Goodnight

I had the Large x-pillow before this one. I really like the pack-ability of these pillows. This pillow material is more durable and a little louder with its stronger material than the Large Luxe version. I don't know if it is a design issue or flaw in the pillow I received, but packing it up can be challenging as air sometimes gets caught in the "X" as I roll it up. However, I would recommend a camp pillow as It saves your head and neck in the night and is much better than using rolled up shirts and pants to. If you are weight conscience and don't care to forgo amenities, then this won't be for you. I know that I don't see myself getting rid of a camp pillow in my near future and will stick with the x-pillow unless something better comes along.

Great inflatable pillow

Great little pillow, I really like how the X design centers my head. I have some neck issues from an old accident, and this is definitely the best ultralight pillow that I could hope for! Just understand that its an inflatable pillow, so understand the limitations - its going to move around and not be made of a breathable material - those are just the laws of physics. Klymit could get this to 10/10 by: making the bottom a bit more tacky, for example by adding some silicone gripper dots and/or doing something to the top to let a bit more airflow (I just tied a bandanna around as a pillowcase, and that worked pretty well)

It’s nice because the X design cradles your head, so you won’t fall off when you roll around at night despite the pillow’s small size. However, I sleep on my side/stomach and I find that this causes my face to be uncomfortably close to the side of the pillow since my head is in the “hole” created by the X. I don’t think this would be a problem if I slept on my back, but it is mildly annoying and can make it hard to go to sleep. Most of the time I just rest my head on the end of my static V sleeping pad since I’m short and there’s extra space up there, which I find is more comfortable for sleeping on my side or stomach.

Good value

I bought this pillow for a 10 day canoe trip and continue to use it for camping. It's a pretty simple pillow and I didn't expect much out of it. I found it best if it's fully inflated otherwise air can shift around. If you look around you can find it at around $15 which is a good price. It looks sturdy, hasn't leaked on me, and once you get the hang of it, packs up easily.

I have been backpacking for pushing 3 decades now and this is the best backcountry pillow I have ever used! At first I was puzzled by the x design, but that x keeps the pillow under your head and keeps it from slipping away the way the rest the the backcountry pillows do! So simple yet so effective! The only things keeping it from a perfect 10 are nit picky really. It’s a little noisy, but not bad, and the valve on it is bulky for packing up.

Pillow X

I really like this pillow. As a minimalist pillow it is light, very packable and can be used in a multitude of ways. I find with other inflatable camp pillows my face slides off the side of them. With this pillow my face or head stays in the X. This pillow lives in my truck, I take it out for hikes and camping, but I also use it on long drives behind my lower back. All-around great. Not a 10 because I have to throw my t shirt over it to sleep as my beard makes to much noise against it.

Super light, extremely pack able size (about the size of the bag of nuts they give you on an airline), inflates in 2-3 breaths. It is functional, it's not going to be super plush, that is the trade off for being so light and packable. The x shape is a great design that helps caress your head and keeps your head from sliding on the pillow. Definitely would recommend.

I use this product twofold; one as a camping pillow, and two as a lumbar support when traveling. It is compact and super lightweight, it takes up virtually no space in either of my packs. It is also very durable, as to when I readjust and constantly crush the pillow with my head or back, it stands up to the rigors. I wish the inflation valve was integrated better to allow folding the pillow back up a tad easier.

Very efficient design!

This is the smallest packing pillow I’ve ever used! Packing down to about the size of a 5-hour energy bottle means I can keep this in the stuff sack for my sleeping pad. Also, although it is not the most luxurious feeling pillow, the X design makes a perfect cradle for your head to ensure comfort throughout the night. However this minimal design does have one drawback, which is that it is not the softest material. Therefore, I recommend coupling it with a sleeping bag that has a built it pillow sleeve.

Amazing little pillow

I was a bit skeptical at first but once I used it I was sold. I am not sure it is the shape or the design but it is much more comfortable than other inflatable pillows. It packs down small enough to fit in a pocket. So far it has passed the scout test (Boys scouts tend to be very hard on gear)

Tough to get used to

Product is great. Quality for this pillow is top notch, and it packs down to almost nothing. I was in the market for a UL pillow and this definitely fits the bill. But I tried using it two different nights and just couldn’t use it. I ended up using my dry bag with my nano puffs in it as my pillow.

Great Little Pillow

This pillow packs up small (a little bigger than a deck of cards) and is perfect for backpacking or similar. The design helps keep your head from slipping off however the material is slippery and it slides off your sleeping bag. If they could make it so it's not slippery I'd give it 5 stars.

This pillow served its purpose. Light weight and can easy to inflate/deflate and get was able to get back into its carrying case with ease. My biggest issue is the fact that it is very slippery and moves around a lot. I wrapped mine in a spare t shirt I had with me and it helped keep it in the hood of my sleeping bag.

After my first backpacking trip I forgot to bring anything to use as a pillow. Made it through the night and immediately after returning home I searched for camping pillows. I came across this one and gave it a try and was pleasantly surprised. For the price point it is a great investment. Packs down to a good size and slips easily into the top of the Klymit sleeping bag.

This is my first light weight pillow that is small enough to take backpacking or throw in a daypack with my hammock and I have loved it! So much better than using rolled up clothes to rest my head on. I have left a lot of drool marks on this pillow to show how much I love it.

Nice pillow for the price, size, and weight.

Pro Really nice product for the price point. Inflates, adjusts, and packs down easily. X design keeps you from slipping off. Con The surface material is not very comfortable if you're a side sleeper. Works great inside a soft t-shirt or fleece.

Ultra lite and ultra comfortable. Traveling or backcountry camping, you’ll never notice this in your pack but you’ll always notice the comfort under your head.

so packable, like the size of lighter packed down. so worth it to bring always, though in fairness, not the most comfortable pillow ive used camping, but better than a rolled up sweater

Its a pillow

Have not used this pillow in the field. But it seems like it will do its job fine. durable, lightweight and folds down to a nice compact size. The infiltrator can be a little tricky if you want to your pillow to be firm, but like i said, it's a pillow.

Great backpacking pillow. Ultra small and light. Very easy to pack and inflate. A bit noisy under your head. Fits in the pillow pocket on my mummy bag.

Small and lightweight, the X pattern keeps your head right in the center of the pillow. It makes a bit of noise at night, but what blow-up pillow doesn't? It washes and dries easily, and seems to be well made. I'd recommend it.

Great product. It is light and packs down super small. No more jackets for pillows! It doesn't have a cover, but a t-shirt will work fine on the trail.

It's light and easy to pack. It was comfortable and fit into the pillow envelope in my nortface cat’s meow sack. It was most comfortable a little less than fully inflated. If you don't put it inside the bag somehow or cover it with something it's very noisy—especially on top of a pad.

Super rad and comfy it works better deflated. Only complaint is that the x can be a lil uncomfortable in some spots but really good quality comfy (if in the right position) pillow

Pillow x

Works great, light...just a tad slippery which can make it hard to keep in place at times, but i just drape a piece of clothing over it since i don’t like the material against my face anyway.
