Pros Very comfortable, great support, easy to adjust thickness, washable exteriorVery comfy, easy to adjust air volume, ergonomically shaped for back and side sleepersLightweight, small packed size, down pillow topVery small packed size, lightweight, great supportLightweight, small packed size, easy to use
Cons Heavy, not for extended backcountry tripsMore expensive, down is allergenic to some users, a little heavier than its inflatable peersHigh price tag, not overly comfortable, pillow top fabric is noisyNot super comfortableLess comfortable than other models, can be punctured, noisy
Bottom Line This pillow provides excellent comfort and is adjustable for all kinds of sleepers in most camp settingsThis model adds significant comfort, but at a weight penaltyA high premium for a good pillow, complete with a down topper and lightweight portabilityThis is our favorite model for extended backpacking tripsYes, you can find something more comfortable, but you won't find many this lightweight and packable
