Kind of surprised these are so expensive here, since they give them to you free on the Klymit site when you buy a pad...
As a side sleeper, I found the regular to be comfortable on my back but very uncomfortable when on my side. Maybe go with the large if you're a side sleeper... However, since then, I ended up purchasing a MEC deluxe pillow which is so comfortable that I'm willing to take a hit on the weight for it due to the quality of sleep that I get from it.
is the material water-proof or water repellent?
thimo
It's air tight, so it must be water proof, right?
To those who have the regular sized pillow X: does this work for you if you’re a hammock side sleeper?
qwicksilver
Not really. I find the regular to be too big for a GE hammock. Might be doable with a bridge hammock. I use something more minimal under my neck for the hammock, though it packs larger. This Klymit pillow packs small enough that I don't mind carrying it, along with my bivy, for potential ground/shelter use.
Help me.. I can't cancel the order.. I thought the x large will fit my sleeping bag.. but the pillow pocket is smaller. I need the regular SIZE
When can we expect the regular ones to be available again?

Any chance more regular sizes will be added?
Striderhiker
@Striderhiker Yes! There will be regular and large pillows added. :D
Will you be adding more regular pillows?
Jennywoosh
Yes! Very, very soon!
Just returned from a three week TDY (Temporary Duty) trip overseas, and used my pillow as both a travel pillow and as my primary pillow on my rack for the whole time. Most surprising: I never needed to top off the air in the pillow over two and a half weeks of sleeping on it. Wit my Klymit pad, I am always topping it off every night before sleep, but this worked great. I had the small onem, and swiped the cover from an airline pillow to use in order to cut down on the face-to-plastic feel. I will have to sew my own cover, but it worked very well.
Is there a way to tie this pillow off to my hammock ridgeline so that it doesn't "get away"? Some pillows have a loop at the back so that thin shock cord or the like can be attached to the pillow to keep it in the general head region of the hammock. Does the Pillow X have this sort of attachment option as well? Can't make any out in the pics. Else, was thinking of attaching the shock chord to the valve. Has anybody tried this and if so, does it get in the way? My current little camp pillow has ended up too many times on the ground. Thank goodness its stuffed and not inflated.

Initially I just tied off around the valve while I was trying to decide if this would replace my DIY hammock pillow or go to my ground gear. Now, used flexible adhesive (Goop but could be that E6000? or any silicon adhesive or similar) and a thin grosgrain loop on the valve side. OK so far. The base material is heat fusible and so is polyester ribbon and grosgrain so.....
ChrisBW
they also have the cover by the same brand i just got mine and it works nice
used this for over a year in my hammock,on maybe 8 trips 4 plus night each trip ,still no leaks, i find it perfect for use in hammock
Fla.Tracker
Did you tie it off some way or was it free to float in your hammock?
This was just delivered two days ago. I inflated it (regular size), and was surprised at how much air it took to fill it. I put my head on it, then opened the valve and let just a little air out, until it cradled my head nicely in the center of the X. It seems plenty comfy, though I haven't slept on it yet. I will put a bandana or something on it when using it for real.
The creases in the fabric help guide the refolding process, though getting enough air out of it to fold it flat was a bit more challenging than I expected. You do need to fold it just right to get it back in its teeny stuff sack—this is a feature, not a bug (as our computer software friends say).

Squeeze out a much air as possible, try rolling it up towards the open valve, put the open valve between your lips and inhale. That will suck out all of the air and make it easier to fold and put back in the stuff sack. I do this with my air mattress also but it takes more inhales. After a few dozen nights, mine still has the factory creases and it's easy to follow them to fold it. At some point, it will probably develop a leak because of folding in the same place over and over but that's what Klymit's life time warranty is for.
If you get this pillow I'd make sure to use a cotton cover of some sort. Sweaty face otherwise at least in my experience.

i just received mine, it is VERY slippery. the material is so thin it has permanent spot mark where it was factory folded. it isnt bouncy at all too, i cant say am happy with this product. it isnt defective and i wont be trying to return it or anything, but i am sad to see such poor quality. i bought many air inflated product in the past and they all came with patch kits, this pillow doesnt.
russell16688
I will use a fleece neck gaiter or balaclava sometimes, unless it's cold enough that I would want to wear that item instead.
hows the material on the Massdrop version, 20D instead of 30/75D? i just bought one and realised afterwards (reading online) that the fabric is thinner. somebody could tell us on the long term durability please? i bought a NatureHike pillow for 15$ used it 3time and now its leaking air from all over the material. i dont want another cheap product.
Love this pillow. Used it every night this past week on a backpacking trip.
Why are people buying these at this price? Theyre regularly only $9.99 on eBay and some other places...and you get them in a few days...

You must be fun at parties....smh
whiteninjazx6r
You asked why people buy them for $15. You don’t think the eBay price of $14 and not shipping outside the US are relevant answers?
Which one to get, large or regular?
Just receives the Large Klymit Pillow here in Spain. Looks and feels good compared to ones I've had before.
Hey DannyMilks, does the large size still fit into the pillow pouch on the Klymit Quilted V Sheet? Thanks!
Would like to join if more standard size are added
I just ordered mine and I'm wondering... Can you sit on it?
TomerF
No.
Well, to be clear, you *can* sit on it but shouldn't as it would likely pop.
TomerF
One's bottom is generally heavier than one's noggin. Don't think the seams are rated for bottom loading. If I was the manufacturer, I wouldn't rate it anyway as it would mean heavier materials, stronger bonds and probably higher corresponding costs.
I have the smaller one. Its like trying to balance your sleeping head on a bag of potato chips. Its more comfortable than nothing, though...
astamp
Couldnt disagree more. This just means you have it inflated TOO much. let a lil air out and your head sits perfectly cradled in the middle. Works better than any other brand i've tried.
Looking forward to taking the regular out backpacking soon! Specs on this product seem nice!
MD, are there any plans for releasing this collab pillow in the semi-near future? I prefer this lighter version than the classic X. Please let us know!

Thanks for the quick response, looking forward to the drop!
Did I miss the regular or large drop of this MD x Klymit pillow or has it not been made available yet?
For camping in a tent and a mummy sleeping bag this is the best pillow you can get. Love mine.
JamesX
Thanks James for the post!
If this is limited to 160 units and 213 people have purchased, how do you choose who out of the 213 gets one? First come first serv?
MarkKeenan
We originally thought 160 would be available, but received an update from our warehouse that 270 are actually available. Would love to give as many people we can the opportunity to join the drop!
Buy with confidence. I hated inflatable pillows; I'm a side-sleeper and couldnt get used to them. Not this one! This is A simple, ingenious design that allows me to sleep comfortably. It also shaved 4 precious ounces from my basic carrying weight, plus added a lot more room in my backpack. It may not seem much, but another 4 ounces off and it means I can spend an additional day in the woods. BUY THIS, YOU WON'T REGRET IT.
LeoKauai
Totally agree. I just received mine today, and it is seriously impressive. Easily the most comfortable inflatable pillow I have ever tried, and it folds down to literally about the size of a pack of cards. I would recommend this to anyone!
litegalm
I'm starting to be not only concerned but a little perplexed as to why it's taking so long. This was my 1st drop. Credit card charged almost 4 weeks ago and have heard nothing. If this is how this works, I'll pay the extra and get off Amazon in 2 days. I use Klymit sleeping pads in my emergency/Go bags and love their products, and just ordered the Klymit Cush pillow/seat cushion for 12.95 (free shipping). So far, not seeing the deal here.
Here is a current review cheers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyYliSagUXc

Thanks for the post! That review is for the recon version, which is a different color and slightly heavier fabric than our version here on Massdrop. But the rest of the review is still pertinent. Cheers,
Just a follow up. I bought this cause the lux i bought just seemed like to much to pack, the lux is so comfy though. I slip a buff over the smaller pillow and it does the job while packing down to almost nothing. Does the job, good product.
I just received mine. The included patch kit was not included.
HikingDawg
The pillow doesn't come with a patch kit, though we mistakingly had stated that in the previous drop description. We have since corrected this mistake. I'm sorry about this issue - definitely my fault. Let me know if you want a patch kit and I'll have it mailed to you. Thanks for your understanding!
DannyMilks
Not a big deal. Thanks for the follow-up Danny. I do appreciate it.
Mine did not come with the patch kit either.
