I am not a camper. I hate being hot…I hate bugs…I hate sweating. That’s my short list. The problem is my husband and kids love to camp. They meet me in the middle and we usually do a cabin or cottage…but even those aren’t that great sometimes.
One of my biggest complaints is that I don’t want to bring my own pillows to some nasty tent/cabin/cottage when I don’t know what else has been there before them. I’m somewhat of a pillow snob.
So I saw this little travel pillow and thought that it might be perfect for this. It’s compact…rolls up tightly and can be packed without taking up too much room. That’s a big plus. When you unroll it you see that the pillow is really the perfect size to sleep on! I don’t like HUGE pillows….but I don’t want them to be tiny either.
The fabric on the pillow isn’t uncomfortable, but I like it better in a case that’s a little softer. You inflate it by unscrewing the lid and it doesn’t come all the way off…you just put your mouth around it and blow…then when you’re done you screw it shut to keep all the air in. I liked how easy this was to use!
Initially I inflated the pillow fully and that was really uncomfortable for me. I let air out little by little until it was where I wanted it. I would say that it was okay. I missed the “fluffyness” of a filled pillow…but it wasn’t terrible. It didn’t matter anyway because my kids ended up stealing it from me. LOL! This is pretty typical in my house. We all love pillows and fight over the good ones!
Overall I would say this is a great little pillow for taking on vacation without the worry that you’ll soil or damage your nice one!
