I'm curious. I have an old Kooka Bay pillow that came with a winter inflatable I have, but I really like the looks of the X for being an inflatable that offers a little nesting/sinking for the head or face. So, do you have or use one? Has anyone told you they love or hate it? Thanks in advance for the help.

These are made by klymit and I actually just sold one in gear swap.
I didnt sleep a full night on it.. just tried it out on the floor. it was ok. It cradled the head nicely. only reason I sold it cus it didn't have tabs, like my exped ul pillow, to strap to my pad.Jan 9, 2014 at 11:50 am #2061913
FWIW, this pillow is also part of Klymit's new O Zone pad:

I like it a lot better than other inflatables I've tried, including the Montbell pillow. My head stays on it and it doesn't feel "bouncy".Jan 10, 2014 at 8:58 am #2062170

How are they compared to the exped pillows ? They are my favorites so far but I don't neet the tab attachments. I only sleep on my back.Jan 10, 2014 at 12:25 pm #2062244
I slept in mine last night in the bed, along with my regular pillows, and it was OK, no issues, and it seems as though the X design may pan out as an improvement over the 1.7oz "wine bag pillow" I am using. I also got mine at GofastandLight.com for a good intro price. Although its box is labeled 1.9oz, it was 2oz out of the box, and 2.1oz this morning after inflation, or 59 grams if I recall correctly.Jan 12, 2014 at 11:54 pm #2062916
Does the polyester have a "plasticy" feel next to the skin? The design and weight look great IF I don't have to add a cotton pillow case to make it useable.Jan 13, 2014 at 3:01 pm #2063065
I would like to know how it compares to an Exped UL. I was thinking about getting one but saw the X pillow. Decisions lolJan 13, 2014 at 5:50 pm #2063111
Got mine in mail today. I'd say it feels surprisingly silky, not as plasticky as I imagined. Feels really comfy when back sleeping, however a little thin if side sleeping. I'm a side sleeper so I plan on putting something under it for an inch or two more height.Aug 25, 2014 at 8:25 pm #2130335
i'm considering this pillow. Any more experience with it? Particularly side sleepers.Aug 25, 2014 at 8:35 pm #2130338
I've used it about 10 nights now. Side sleeper 90% of the time. If my pillow at home is a 10, i'd rate this a 6 if used by itself. It's not quite thick enough to put my head/neck at a comfortable angle. The fabric isn't that cozy against the skin all night either. It was much better with my down jacket wrapped around it. I do still like that you can nestle your head in it so that there is no pressure on your ear. It's better than other options, especially considering the weight. I plan on continuing to use it.
