After many years of faffing and moaning (I’m very fussy) I feel as though I’ve finally sorted a pillow arrangement for backpacking, that suits me brilliantly:
Take one Exped air pillow (84g).
A Western Mountaineering Down pillow (89g) with half the down removed, or else the whole thing would be just too thick.
One Buff – weight doesn’t count as I carry this anyway.
Absolutely perfect, sleep like a baby.
I used this system for 8 nights on the run in Sweden and it was brilliant – amazingly comfortable.
The only thing I’m now changing is I’ve ordered a UL Exped Pillow, which only weighs 44g.
Works for me!
