The Therm-A-Rest Down Pillow is compact and portable comfort. From all but the most austere backpacks to long flights and train rides, it's hard to think of a place this ultralight pillow would not be appreciated. A soft, brushed polyester exterior is filled with luxurious 650-fill goose down to add that little bit of added comfort and support you've been missing. You can even customize firmness by adding an extra layer of clothing inside the pocket created by the perimeter compression cord that makes this pillow an easy travel companion.

    Comments about Therm-A-Rest Thermarest Down Pillow:

    This pillow is soft, comfy, and plush. The down side (no pun intended) is that when you put any weight on it, such as your head, the pillow compresses almost completely to whatever surface it is sitting on. It does not provide any support for your head or neck. Plan on putting this on top of something else (e.g. backpack, clothes, another pillow etc.) that will keep your head and neck supported.

      Comments about Therm-A-Rest Thermarest Down Pillow:

      Unless space is a REAL issue, you might want to go for the largest one, they still pack very small. NOT a good stand alone pillow. I cram under the tightening string a down vest folded twice into a neat square that's exactly the right size to fit (I got the MEDIUM one and am still debating a bit about getting the larger one) and then I shove the whole thing into an actual pillow case. The result is PERFECT, especially if you're a side sleeper. This way you save space and still get the comfiness of down.

      Comments about Therm-A-Rest Thermarest Down Pillow:

      I've used this a few times out and about on weekend outings. If you can sleep on your back, this pillow will do well for you...especially opened up and fluffed out. But if you side-sleep only...fuggeddaboutit. Its not thick enough and although the suggestion by Cascade Designs is to stuff the backside with something like a shirt might work for some...its not good for side sleeping regardless. Stays warm, packs down well, might want to stuff it in a MACS sack to keep dry and smallest possible size

            Ok pillow, and is better than nothing. I'm a large person, but even the large doesn't enough padding. Only problem so far is I had to dry it forever until it was dry and fluffy (the nature of Down).

            Comments about Therm-A-Rest Thermarest Down Pillow:

            I purchased the small down pillow. The size is OK but the 2.6 oz of down fill does not provide much loft.

            The cover has a draw string, allowing you to attach the pillow to another gear bag. I'll probably slip it over my clothing/towel bag in order to get more cushioning for my head.

            For more loft, I suggest buying the medium or large size.

            With the caveats above, I would recommend this product.

            Blow up air pillows just do not rate unless they are half inflated. Use with a rolled up jacket and you are in business. Bought this for backpacking and wanted comfort. Marvin the Minimalist would probably prefer two ears of prickley pear cactus! Stuff size is just under a small 8" diameter ball. Like cats, always room for one more! Bought "manly" blue - Arrrgh!

            Comments about Therm-A-Rest Thermarest Down Pillow:

            I haven't used this yet, but I bought it for an upcoming trip overseas. I ordered all three sizes before I settled on the large. It mushes down enough to fit in my carry on bag easily, but is big enough to be comfortable. I really like that it's in its own stuff sack - pull the cord tight and it's packed, let it all the way out for a large (and probably slightly too thin) pillow, or tighten it partway for a smaller, but thicker, down pillow. I travel for work alot - always with my down bed pillow. I think this will replace that item in my suitcase from now on.

                Wash cold and tumble dry on low, like drying a pillow.
