Hard No
On my 2nd multiday backpacking trip with this pillow, it got a hole in the seam. I wasnt worried, it's inflatable and we are outside, its almost inevitable. And it comes with patches, so not to worry I said. Then i discovered Big Agnes sells it with IRON ON PATCHES?!?!?! Who carries an iron on a backpacking trip? Not me. There are many other patch options available and this was simply lack of foresight. Obviously i can patch it at home, but now I'm back to my rolled up sweater anyway.

Backpacking game changer
I LOVE this pillow. I have been backpacking for about 5 years now and was a hold out on the camping pillow -- it felt a little too glampy. I always just stuffed some clothes into a stuff sack and slept on that. Recently, it got very cold at night and I had to wear all of my clothes to sleep so did not have a comfortable pillow. We still had about 10 miles to go the next day and I was exhausted after not getting enough sleep. The next day I bought this pillow and it is a game changer! It is so small I could just stuff it into the same stuff sack as my sleeping pad. The rounded shape around the neck is also great. Very comfortable whether you sleep on your side or back. A friend bought the larger Q-Core Deluxe and I much prefer the shape and size of this one.

Like sleeping on air
The perfect pairing with the AXL sleep mat. These pillows are comfortable and easy to inflate. They fit perfectly in our mummy sleeping bags. And they're so light and pack down so small that you won't even know they're in your pack.

My luxury backpacking item
The AXL Air Pillow has got to be my favorite piece of gear I have gotten in a long time! I never thought I needed a pillow... I never liked the idea of adding more weight to my pack especially since I can just use a stuff sack as a pillow... but now I can't imagine not having it and it only weights 1.6 oz!!! Crazy light and blows up in 2-3 breaths. The fabric also has a softness to it so it doesn't feel like you're laying on plastic.

I seriously love it so much and it's become my luxury camping item.

Never going back to a rolled up down jacket
Clever shape fits snugly inside a sleeping bags hood so it doesn't move around. Way better than using a rolled up jacket etc

Love it!
Gave this a try based on my excellent experience with my Big Agnes AXL insulated mattress. Very comfortable pillow, and fits the pillow sleeve inside my sleeping bag perfectly. I love it! It stays in my sleeping bag permanently now

Best camp pillow I've ever had!
This is by far the lightest and smallest packing pillow I have ever seen!
Very comfortable and fits in my Big Agnes sleeping bag pillow pocket so it doesn't move when I sleep.
Need I say more?

Tiny piece of big comfort!
This is a no-brainer now for every trip with such a lightweight piece that is so comfortable! Packs down to even smaller than the photo, I just keep it in the same bag as my sleeping pad and it is that great little bonus after a long day out.

Stop using dirty sweater as a pillow
The AXL Pillow is my third attempt at a backpacking pillow, first attempt with one of BA pillows...and BA nailed it with this one. Not only do I take it for every overnight backpacking trip (no more neck pains), but it has completed my travel ensemble (McKinnis + AXL pad + AXL pillow) for overnight flights and winter delays in terminals.
