Gear Review: NEMO Fillo Camping Pillow

An inflatable pillow that feels like the real thing.

The clincher on total basecamp comfort? A real pillow. You could bring one from home, but this inflatable model is compressible enough for backpacking (about bike-bottle size), and is so deluxe you might just start using it at home. Baffles reduce any trampoline effect on its three-inch-thick air chamber, and microfiber-covered memory foam delivers luxury softness. Bonus: Elastic cords on the bottom let you stuff jackets underneath, elevating the Fillo for side-sleepers. $40; 11 oz.; nemoequipment.com
