Ultralight Aeros in Its Stuff Sack Inside My Tent

My Story:

When you spend as many days as I do out on the mountain for extended hunting and
backpacking trips getting a good night’s sleep is very important. I’ve tried sleeping on
my coat, clothes stuffed in a pillow case, etc, but nothing works quite as well as a pillow. Since
weight and compactability are so important to backpackers it’s impossible to pack a regular size pillow so
when I read about Sea to Summit’s new Aeros Ultralight pillow I knew
immediately that I had found what I was looking for. The pillow itself comes in a stuff sack
that is only 3.1 x 3.3 inches in size. I found that I could inflate the pillow to its desired
size in seconds and was impressed with the contoured baffling and soft fabric. The
pillow has helped me sleep comfortably and with a simple release of the deflate valve I can
push the air out, close the valve, fold it, and have it stuffed back in the stuff sack within seconds.


I haven’t had an issue with the multifunctional valve and have found that it works perfectly.



At a price of $29 to $40 dollars, depending on where you are shopping, I feel that Sea to
Summit has designed an inexpensive pillow that is a backpackers dream if you are one of those individuals
who have a difficult time sleeping out on the mountain without the support of a nice, soft and
comfortable pillow.

What They Could Do Better
For the size and price I can’t suggest any improvements to Sea to Summit on the Aeros.. Excellent little
