When it comes to camping, one of the most crucial things I need to take with me is a pillow. Without one, I just can’t sleep at all! I used to always bring with me a small pillow which I keep in the car, the one which has lots of tiny styrofoam balls inside, but it wasn’t comfy at all. So my husband and I would always end up taking our huge pillow from home. It sure made it comfortable for us, but it took up a lot of space in our car, so it wasn’t the most ideal thing.
During our Labor Day camping trip in Joshua Tree National Park, we were able to test out backpacking pillows from ONWEGO®. I never really liked air-inflated pillows, but these ones changed my mind! I was surprised by how comfy they were, and the best part was that it had the right height to avoid any neck pains the following day.
ONWEGO®’s Soft-Top Inflatable Travel Pillows weigh only 4oz and they pack really small, about 4 x 4 inches, and it blows up to 15 x 12 inches. Definitely a good size for traveling. It’s perfect for when I go camping or backpacking, and especially when I need to travel by plane.
One of its great features is its one-way air valve system. This lets you inflate the pillow very easily by blowing into it. You can literally inflate it in under 10 seconds! When you need to deflate, you simply have to press the inner flap, and it deflates instantly. It’s great that you have the option to easily inflate & deflate, in order to adjust the pillow’s firmness. The pillow’s design also gets a bit deeper in the middle, and it is perfect for cradling your head.
I also love the fabric they chose for the pillow case, it felt very soft. It also had the small stuff sack attached to it, so you wouldn’t have to worry about losing it when it’s time to pack your pillow.
I really can’t think of anything negative to say about this travel pillow, except I wish there were more design & color options, since they only have it in Black at the moment. Other than that, I think it’s perfect for campers and travelers like me who like to pack light for trips. Most importantly, it lets you sleep well throughout the night.
Whether it be camping, backpacking, or traveling, this pillow will surely give you the comfort you need. I was able to use it in the car during our road trip, while inside the tent when it was time to sleep, and even while we were just chilling around the campsite. In all those times, this pillow came in handy. Now, I don’t think I’ll ever leave for a trip without it!
