OK, my Montbell pillow arrived along with my BA Clearview pad. As much as I wanted it to work, I just could not find the inflatable pillow comfortable. My head tended to roll from side to side. I am thinking I won't be satisfied unless I have a real pillow. Yeah, I know, you can put clothes in a stuff sack, but that assumes that you are not maximizing your thermal layering efficiency. A true ultralighter is wearing all their clothes to bed, right?
I'm currently eyeing this down pillow from Western Mountaineering:
Regarding the Clearview pad, I noticed that the material is significantly thinner than that on my BA insulated air core. Has anyone tested the Clearview pad extensively and found it durable? Adding a GG Thinlite pad underneath doesn't sound like a bad idea--too bad the Thinlite is only 60" long.
