I was wondering that as well.

I was wondering how small this packed down to because I'm trying to cut down on bulk in my pack. I saw the specs on ProLite gear's site of 3 something inches by 3 something. I guess I was thinking my question was stupid after that.

If anyone has one, maybe they could take a pick of it packed up, next to their hand or something?

I recently picked up this pillow and have tested it out once this spring. I paired it with the Montbell 90 pad and loved it. I measured it compressed and it's ~ the size of a bar of soap (~3"x3"x1.5"). I uploaded a few pictures of it here:

Another way to pack the pillow on 04/11/2008 17:30:23 MDT Print View

I just leave it attached to my Montbell torso length pad and fold it right into the little rectangle that I stow just above my sleeping bag near the bottom of the pack. No muss, no fuss, no bother, especially at the end of a long hard day at the "office". :)

Good idea Tom. Reattaching it each time would get old.
