/ The Best Camping Pillows?
So, which one would you recommend? There's a lot out there, well just on Amazon there are loads! I'd like one that packs down very wee, as we wild camp with lots of gear so lightweight and small would be good. Low to mid price range. Thanks.
Too crinkly, I'm a very light sleeper, have heard it's good but don't think it's for me unless it full of wine!
That's what I've been doing but it still kills my neck even after one night. I cannae even sleep in a bed with feather pillows, yes fussy lady!
I have one of these. Its good.
Actually not sure I camp enough to justify £25 on a pillow, hmm Christmas list?
down jacket stuffed in a fleece
I have the mammut one, great bit of kit, even better when wrapped in a fleece.
I am also someone who needs a pillow for a good nights sleep and find the clothes approach too firm and the wine box method and anything else is too heavy.
so i started piling my clothes under my thermarest so that the soft thermarest is in contact with my head. Best nights sleep apart from when i carry a down jacket but thats very rare.
If you've got a Camelback wrap it in a fleece.
The Mammut one's great, lovely warm fleecy cover. And the Montbell UL Comfort System pillow is excellent if you want something *really* small and really comfortable.
Its good.I agree, the Ajungilar AP is very comfortable, light to carry and packs down really small.
I just use my sleeping bag stuff sack and spare clothes
If I'm wildcamping then it's clothes in the sleeping bag stuff sack.
The Alpkit Airloks are quite good because you can seal the top with a bit of air in the sack, which adds more comfort (it does deflate over the course of the night though).
That said, if there is ANY way I can get a normal pillow into the tent, I'll do it! A decent pillow makes quite a big difference to how I sleep.
Does anyone else find the Ajungilak/Mammut ones squeak/creak when you move?
I have a Decathlon one too which folds flat and is about the same weight as the one above but only cost a fiver. Think I prefer it.
ps I mean the same weight at the Mammut one. Wasn't clear.
I'll definitely check out the Decathlon one, planning a wee trip to the new Edinburgh store soon anyway, so if it's nice and it's cheap may just go for that, no mad rush as it's a bit cold for me to camp now!
