The Sea to Summit Aeros might become one of your favorite pieces in your backpacking setup. It's small and lightweight enough to hide away almost unnoticed in your pack, but its presence is appreciated when laying down to rest. There is also plenty of adjustable support with this Sea to Summit contender. Some inflatable pillows feel like a blown-up ziplock baggie, but this one stands apart from those models with its soft polyester cover, baffled air chamber, and ergonomic shape for mummy sleeping bag hoods. It is our pillow of choice for extended backpacking trips.
In comparison to the hybrid and compressible pillows in this review, its comfort is inferior, and it's more of a hassle to use. Our Editors' Choice winner, the Nemo Fillo, is more comfortable and suited for car camping and single night trips. If these sound more like your needs, then we recommend the comfortable and supportive Fillo.
