    Just received my pillow from SLD, and love it. I have used it 3 nights in a row. Very pleased

    I recently bought a second one as a backup. It's funny how the new one is about 1" shorter length and width but 2" thicker. The old one sure got smashed down from use, but not in a bad way. Still 100% functional, and maybe even a little more comfortable that way.

    I use an Arrowhead Equipment Cub pillow. It's a tiny little thing that just goes under your neck and has a cord and hook to clip it to your ridgeline. I like it so much I use this pillow form factor full time now. Used to have a compressible Thermarest pillow, but I find that larger pillows put my head at a funky and uncomfortable angle. All I really need is neck support.

    The only thing I don't like about it is that the material squeaks against my hammock. I may make a pillowcase or a clone of a different material.

    Yes! to all of the above including the squeak.

    Just got mine...it's OneClick's fault

    Still like my Nemo but this works and is much lighter.

    Ditto. I have two down pillows that both squeaked when under my head so I use them under my knees or behind my back to create new angles whether lounging or sleeping. I use a small folded fleece blanket under my head instead.
    The game is the best teacher.

    I agree, so I made a smaller version with an appropriately-sized stuff sack filled with cubic- inch- size pieces of OC foam I cut from packing material.

    I just added foam until I felt the support was right and now it offers perfect neck and side support with enough foam under my head to provide insulation when I use a shorter underquilt.

    It weighs around 1.6 oz or so and compresses to a size that would fit inside a toilet- paper tube. I keep it compressed when packing by wrapping it with the draw cord (which also attaches it to the ridge line) and tucking the end under.

    I like very much to use HG pillows. Those are quite small, cute and comfortable. So, i think it can be a nice solution for you.

    I use a Therm-a-Rest pillow compressible that has the bits of foam as the filling. I find the inflatable pillows either too bouncy (if inflated near full) or they tend to want to squirt out from under the head/neck if inflated less than full. I also use a child-sized pillow case with my Therm-a-Rest pillow, that I can stuff with extra items to give me the loft I need when using it on the ground. I'd sure like to find an inflatable pillow shape that works in a gathered end, as they are so much smaller, lighter, and are very convenient.
