The Snugpak Basecamp Air Pillow inflates just right, whether you like a hard pillow or one with some movement/flexibility., you decide how you want it. This one is tough, high quality and durable.

Very nice product. Good quality
Nice storage stuff sack
Pillow materials are soft and comfortable; pleasant to have against your face and skin. A lot of pillows on the market are not very comfortable and will require you to wrap them in different material
Good solid Valve. Not Cheap or flimsy like some.
Easy to inflate..
Easy to release the air and fold it.
Stuff sack is perfectly sized.
When inflated, it is incredibly soft; not hard or harsh when laying upon it.
This is not a super thick pillow; about 3 inches when inflated.
Pro Tip : If you need more thickness, release some of the air and then fold the pillow in half; perfect solution!
Oddity 1 : When inflating your pad, it is incredible loud!. It sounds like a jet engine!. Not a con, just worth mentioning.
Oddity 2 : Pad is supposed to come with a repair kit. Mine review model didn’t have one and I’m not sure if that is because it is a T&E model or it was a mistake.
To Sum It Up :
This has to be one of my favorite pillows; it’s perfect for backpacking and camping.
Great in a tent.
Great in a hammock.
