    Hammock Gear Pillow?

    I've seen the Hammock Gear Pillow on their site, but there is no details or pictures yet. Has anyone purchased one or seen one yet?

    I would love to get my hands on a down pillow at the high quality standard that Hammock Gear puts out!!

    Kinda depends on your particular needs, it works well for some folk, others need something more substantial.

    I fall into the latter category. Nothing against HG quality but oz for oz, I just get more support from using extra clothing in a stuff sack. Usually a tee shirt rolled up under my neck is all I need.

    Don't get me wrong, I use my HG pillow when I'm hanging around in the back yard and the little bungie works great but I typically leave it at home.

    I'm pretty sure they would sell you one.

    I got one a couple of years ago. It's nice and firm and provides good neck support.

    I love HG gear, but I got the Arrow Head Equipment pillow and am very happy with it. (that is click-able to the site).

    I have one but have not had a chance to use it. I slept pretty well with out it on monday night in my backyard, but will bring it with me on my winter hang tomorrow. Its nice and soft (i tested in on my floor while laying on a sleeping pad) though I may have to 'massage' it a little to move some of the feathers around as I can feel one or two trying to poke through. If I don't use it for my head, I could always use it for my legs to get them more comfortable - I've read a lot of posts about people using pillows down by their knees for extra comfort and this guy is so light its not like carrying extra weight.

    EDIT: Also, they were kind enough to throw it in with my 0'F Incubator as I asked about the pillow and it wasn't available from their website at the time!

    I like mine with a bridge hammock, but I don't use it with a gathered end hammock. I will try to dig mine up for weight and photos...I actually do not know exactly where they are at the moment.
