I really like the feel of this pillow. The cover makes the inflatable plastic few more luxurious. Packs down small and is lightweight.
I bought my Zenbivy Pillow to go along with my new Zenbivy Bed because I’m trying to cut down on space and weight in my overlanding/car camping set up. I was also looking for something that would work well for the occasional overnight backpacking trip. In that respect I’m very happy with my purchase... in its little stuff sack the pillow packs down to a very compactly. However, when it’s fully inflated it’s actually a little bigger than I was expecting - that was a pleasant surprise. It also seems to be well-made, with a very comfortable case material. I used it for the first time last week and after fine tuning the pillow stiffness with the valve I got quite a comfy night’s sleep with it. All in all very happy!
Just like Goldie Locks, this pillow isn’t too hard or too soft. It’s just right with the ability to add a shirt or other item to increase the volume without increasing firmness. Another tick in the win column for ZenBivy!
I really like my Zenbivy pillow, it is the best camping pillow I have used.
I was not expecting to like this pillow at all - but I love it! I've tried other inflatable ones that I really disliked because they didn't have enough cushion and felt like a pool float. This pillow is super comfortable and doesn't feel like a blow up one to me. The material used on the inflatable part is super soft and pliable, not at all like the typical plastic I was expecting. The quilting on the pillow gives it a nice soft cover without being overly thick and bulky. This is so much smaller and lighter than the larger luxury pillow I had been carrying and just as comfortable, if not more! The size is perfect. I inflated it most of the way and tried it with and without extra clothes stuffed in the bottom. It was comfortable both ways, just depends on how much cushioning I feel like that day. Of course, it fits great into my Zenbivy sheet hood with room for my head to get under it too. My search for the perfect pillow is over.
Unlike mummy bags, there is no thermal disadvantage to a larger size Zenbivy Bed because it is always free to wrap snugly around you. So bigger is always more comfortable and just as warm. If you are an "active" sleeper or have a "wide" sleeping position, you may want to size up to sleep naturally. When in doubt, size up.
