Exped Air Pillow makes Great Outdoors Favorite Gear of 2010 list

Here's what Peter Potterfield ( has to say:

After decades of using my sleeping bag stuff sack with jackets and extra clothes crammed inside as my backcountry pillow, this inflatable changed my mind. On two long back country trips this summer, the Exped Air Pillow made my nights much more comfortable. A couple of breaths is all it takes to blow up (I prefer it less than fully inflated), and it fits neatly inside my sleeping bag hood. The asymmetrical design means you can use it multiple ways, for slide sleeping or back sleeping. At just three ounces, it extracts a small weight toll but delivers big comfort.
