My Story:

I love pillows as I am sure most of you do too. For those of us that love to spend time away from the comfort of our own home we know the pain of going without. So what are we to do? Well, head over to and check out the all new Drift Pillow.

I have used many of today’s inflatable pillows and to be honest they all leave me wanting a bit more. The beat the heck out of using a coat or nothing at all but they just do give the comfort that a normal pillow provides. The Drift Pillow is the pillow I have been looking searching for for years! It is small enough to pack and provides amazing comfort and support.

The drift pillow is unique in that it has two different skins of sorts. Another cool part is that the outer shell is machine washable!

There outer shell is better suited for uncovered outdoor use as it is slightly water resistant and still comfortable. Once you get into the cabin or tent you can utilize a really fun feature of this great pillow. You can “drift” the shredded memory foam into the softer jersey material and obtain home like comfort in seconds.

The Drift Pillow is not exactly a UL option at 28 ounces and thus is not perfect for all circumstances. Luckily Klymit has other options to fit those needs an I recommend you take time to look those over as well. However, if you are looking for amazing comfort and don’t mind a bit of extra weight you will be hard pressed to find a better option than the Drift Pillow.

I used the Drift Pillow on a 3 day camping trip during the ice winter months here in Washington State. I found it to be a fantastic companion during this trip and I slept wonderfully. My children also loved to steal it during their movie time.

After my testing it became apparent that I was going to have to purchase more of these great pillows as it was a huge hit with my family. I think you are really going to love the Klymit Drift Pillow, we sure do!
