    I don't have one of Speer's pillows, but I do have one that looks just like it.

    First, I can't imagine a lighter or cheaper pillow. Second, they are quite comfortable since you can just inflate to your desired tautness.

    The only downside is the 'crinkly' noise that the plastic surface makes when you move. That's remedied, though, by simply wrapping the pillow in a spare piece of clothing (shirt, fleece, etc).
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Wow Sparrow, took the words out of my mouth. I think I got mine from Backpacking Light but I'm not sure. I put my fleece jacket over it and its great. After you lose the straw (there like socks, you put 8 in the washer/dryer only 7 come out - where do those things go??), anyway, you can use a smooth straight twig or stem of tall grass to hold the hole open to inflate/deflate until you can get to a Burger King or someplace to get another straw.
