"I looked on the forum and couldn't really find much."
Seriously? Keep trying! Or were you just asking about the compression issue?
The "Pillow Question" debate on here, as you probably know already, is like other philosophical debates down through the ages, like Free Will, The Existence of God, The Nature of Consciousness, and the perennial Favorite Stove question. It will probably go on for just as long. Lots and lots of suggestions on BPL forums.
Since every man must choose side in the great debates of the day, here is my own (this weeks at least). I am in the party of the fleece covered pillow stuff sack (of which there are many commercial as well as DIY solutions), together with 5-8 quart sized ziplocks which when inflated add bulk without stiffness, and supplemented by clothes (if any available on a particular night). Total weight < 2 oz. All components also multi-use, if you are into that.
Because it is a Pillow solution it is totally personal, but you can try this one almost for free - grab a stuff sack and some ziplocks and anything else you think you might have to work with and see. If it works for you then you have got a very lightweight pillow with a certain amount of adjustabiltiy, and super small when deflated.
