Our favorite camping pillow overall continues to be the Nemo Fillo for nailing nighttime comfort and versatility. Our testers loved its hybrid design, which is a fantastic compromise for folks who want the comfort of a compressible pillow yet the adjustability of an inflatable. It also packs down small for its size and luxurious feel. On outdoor excursions from Minnesota to Alaska, we loved sleeping on this contender while car camping, on weekend trips, and even short backpacking ventures. It is too heavy for most on extended treks lasting more than a few days (though we have taken it on week-long, alpine hikes), but this model fits the bill for the majority of folks' camping styles.
The Fillo faced stiff competition, especially in areas of specialized use. If you're looking for something lighter with a smaller packed size, be sure to check out our Top Pick for Backpacking, the Sea to Summit Aeros. Another hybrid model reviewed is the Exped REM, which provides excellent support at a lower weight, but doesn't live up to the comfort of the Nemo model.
If you're seeking bonafide comfort for car camping trips, Nemo's got you covered with the Nemo Fillo Luxury version of our Editors' Choice winner. Unpacked, it's wider and longer to provide more acreage for your dome. It is more expensive and too heavy and large for backpacking trips, but if you camp close to your vehicle, this upgrade might be for you.
