    Question Never posted a poll before but - Pillow Poll

    I have used google search and multiple message boards to get ideas of what I believe are the top rated backpacking pillows. I want to see in a poll what members like the best. This helps me make my decision easier and hopefully will help others. Thank you for your time and input/opinions.

    I use a medium Quixote Down pillow. The Thermarest Down is cheaper by about $20 for basically the same thing.

    I use my climashield filled DIY pillow. Fleece on one side, nylon on the other. If it's cold, the fleece side is warmer...

    I have a smalll down pillow that packs down to the size of a softball. Reminds me of the pillows that the airlines use to give out
