I basically ball up some piece of clothing but have been looking into picking up an actual pillow for use in my hammock. Light, inexpensive, all that good stuff. Thanks.Feb 16, 2017 at 7:38 am #3450748

Just use your packing bag to sleep on. I often just strip my pack down (I do anyway) and roll it up inside my compression pack. Toss in whatever else you have, instant pillow.Feb 16, 2017 at 8:36 am #3450757

I don’t know if you’ve tried it, but I’ve found I’m most comfortable in my hammock without a pillow (I do sleep on my back).Feb 16, 2017 at 9:28 am #3450767
Stuff sack with some clothes. If real ambitious I will secure it to the end of the hammock so no chasing it down when I would rather be sleeping.Feb 16, 2017 at 4:25 pm #3450838
Thank u guys. I get neck pain if I sleep in the hammock without something under my head. Typically yes, i simply use extra clothing in a stuff sack as suggested but in warmer weather I really take nothing bulky along to use. Was thinking along the lines of a blow up type of thing? But thank u all for the ideas.Feb 16, 2017 at 8:06 pm #3450912

Loco Libre Gear and Hammock Gear both make down pillows. Both are about $25 and 3 ounces.
Dutchware Gear has both a synthetic and an inflatable pillow.Dutch’s inflatable pillow is $2 and 0.58 ounces.Feb 17, 2017 at 5:30 am #3450971

The Klymt X design works really well in a hammock. It’s a blow-up type.Feb 19, 2017 at 5:34 pm #3451472
I just got a Klymit and will use it next time out.Feb 20, 2017 at 4:20 am #3451545

UGQ makes a down pillow in three different fill weights…it has a little loop on top so you can tie it in to keep it in the right place.Feb 20, 2017 at 5:52 am #3451550

I’ve been using down booties, one stuffed into the other for an occasional hammock pillow, used as a neck cradle.
I just bought UGQ’s medium down pillow for the dedicated lux touch. I’m fine w/o a hammock pillow, but it is nice, especially while hanging at home.Feb 20, 2017 at 6:07 pm #3451677

I tried the hammockgear down pillow, but found it too small for my liking. I’m using an Exped UL now and like I can add or release air to dial it in and it’s lighter and smaller packing than the down.Mar 13, 2017 at 8:32 am #3456313

I use my packa as a pillow. I just cant justify bringing along a designated pillow to sleep. In rainy weather I usually just ball up my down jacket.
