    i just use clothing i'm not wearing for a pillow. now if all three of my chins were touching my chest, i'd re-evaluate my sag and angle.

    I don't know if this helps, but for me I sometimes put my pillow under my shoulders a little bit as well if I'm lying flat on my back. Or I just turn on my side a bit.

    Have you tried a softer/thinner pillow? On a regular bed, I had firmer, larger pillows and hated the one soft pillow I had. That soft pillow is now my favorite, and I've been using it every night for the past 3 months hanging indoors.

    just to add to the mess, i have an overstuffed WL pillow. its more for the neck than head, but it does wonders. In my eno the back of my head is on the strip of extra fabric on the side and is semi supported like that, and the pillow keeps my neck supported. it actually keeps my chin off my chest by adding support.

    I actually use a small pillow under just my neck and upper shoulders to help tilt my head back because of the chin to chest syndrom. I have mild sleep apnea and it helps keep my airway open, a rolled up tshirt should work also.

    not to mention a properly used pillow will keep your head a neck warm. using the pillow in the WBBB and eno with a 3/4 UQ my head/neck was nice a warm.

    Yes, now I know I'm not so weird! I put my pillow under my shoulders too! Not so much because of the chin to chest, but more because i feel like my hammock fold my shoulders inwards and the pillow under them helps alleviate any pressure.

    REI Traveler inflatable pillow. Just the right shape to help get your head tilted back. Lightweight and has silicon grip dots/stripes on the back to hold position.

    I use a insulated hunting cushion that I got from wallyworld for $3
    It is light weight, very comfortable and packs really well.
    I got a few of them and even use them when laying around the house.

    I use this:

    A thin layer of memory foam on a thin inflatable cushion. Perfect for the hammock, but too thin if I am on the ground.

    Very comfy!
