Very happy on my third attempt to find a good UL pillow. First attempt was the Thermarest Stuff Sack Pillow, a great idea (with fleece liner) whose comfort depends entirely on what leftover clothes you can find to put in it. I generally had little soft or cushy clothing left over at night, so this wasn't ideal for me. Second attempt was the Cocoon Air-Core Ultralight Pillow, which felt great with its lining of synthetic fill. However, my head constantly rolled off this pillow at night, regardless of how much I filled or deflated it. This was a frustrating experience. Third attempt, I simply looked for a favorably-mentioned, often-mentioned pillow at BPL, which appeared to be this Exped Airpillow. So I purchased the regular "red" medium (not the UL version) @ 2.8 ounces. Success! Good night's sleep and no roll-off. The pillow appears to have three air chambers to combat roll-off, and it works well. It's even nicer if you wrap it in a spare shirt before bedtime.
