    I appreciate that silnylon or silpoly pack down to a smaller volume than dyneema. Dyneema might be a few ounces lighter, but my main pack problem is volume more than weight, at that level. Love my...

    Wow, that's a very timely anecdote. Good call on avoiding pillows with weird and super-annoying fill material.

    I like the Arrowhead pillow a lot, but wish it were a little more packable.
