FlexAir® Inflatable Pillows

    • Ultralight and compact
    • 2 Sizes – minimalist or comfort
    • Easy inflation, quick deflation
    • Adjustable firmness for max comfort
    • Soft exterior material


    FlexAir® Pillows are the lightest inflatable pillows available. They are compact and so simple to use. The firmness can be easily adjusted for maximum comfort. The exterior has a soft nap, durable, non-woven exterior material that’s comfortable against your skin. But do you really need a pillow? Why not just put your spare clothes in a stuff sack and use it for a pillow? Well, many ultralighters wear nearly all their clothes to sleep to extend the temperature rating of their sleeping bag, leaving little to make a pillow.

    FlexAir Inflatable Pillows are available in two sizes – small and large. The small pillow for the minimalist is 13 x 9 x 3 in. (33 x 22.9 x 7.6 cm) when inflated and weighs a scant 0.56 oz (16 g). The large pillow for more comfort is 16 x 11 x 4 in. (40.6 x 27.9 x 10.2 cm) when inflated and weighs 0.9 oz (27 g). Large is a better size if you roll side to side during the night. If you don’t move much while you sleep, small should work fine.



    1. To inflate, insert the straw provided about 6 in. (15 cm) into the clear plastic valve near the corner of the pillow. Blow directly into the end of the straw until the pillow reaches the desired firmness. This should take just 3-4 puffs. Then pull the straw out (the valve will self-seal) and store it where you can find it later.
    2. To adjust pillow firmness, re-insert the straw and blow into the end to inflate or release air to deflate. When finished, pull the straw out. Many prefer less than fully inflated.
    3. To quickly deflate, re-insert the straw into the valve and squeeze the air out until the pillow is flat. Roll or fold the pillow for storage and stow the straw with it.
    4. If you lose the straw, the pillow can be inflated by blowing directly into the valve and deflated by sticking a long, thin, non-sharp object into the valve to release the air.

    1. Amazing pillow for such a light weight!  star rating

      Posted by Dave on 9th May 2018

      I've only used these a few nights, so I have no idea how long they'll last overall, but if preliminary evidence is any indication, for the amount of backpacking I do they'll easily work for a season or more. I'm marveling at the valve - it really IS like magic! There was zero air loss overnight. If I were to try a thru hike I might be tempted to invest in a standard inflatable job (or maybe put these in re-supply boxes?

    2. Love this pillow  star rating

      Posted by Rob on 18th Aug 2017

      As I shaved out extra clothing from my pack, I was left without a viable "pillow". With a fast approaching trip, I read some reviews on these and decided to give them a spin. I asked if these could be packaged and sent to me in an expedited manner and was obliged! Arrived quickly and was able to test them out for a few nights. Man, what an upgrade from using a fleece. This thing is surprisingly durable and doesn't deflate (I toss and turn constantly during the night). Would recommend to anyone.

    3. Very light pillow  star rating

      Posted by Carla Markus on 3rd May 2017

      Very light and comfortable. I used it for two nights now. Wonder how durable it is.

    4. Surprising quality for a "plastic" pillow  star rating

      Posted by Abraham Friedman on 17th Dec 2016

      I picked up a 3 pack just to give this a try. It sounded too good to be true but I was pleasantly surprised when I received them. They are sturdier than I expected so we'll see how long they last.

      The valve is magic. You just put in the straw and inflate and take the straw out and it seals. No fussing. Very simple. Didn't leak in the short test I did but again, we'll see how it works overnight.

      The valve is your typical plastic but you only interact with about a quarter inch of it. The rest of the pillow is made up of a smooth and soft material, almost like a super soft Tyvek. Very comfortable and not plasticy feeling at all.

      If this holds up and continues to work this will be the best purchase I've made this year. It weights 1/10th what my current pillows weigh and has the same shape and, most important as a side sleeper, it's deep enough to support my head.

    5. light and compact!  star rating

      Posted by jason on 2nd Jun 2016

      Great pillow. I use mine as a leg pillow, to take the pressure off my knees in my hammock. This thing is super light, easy to inflate and deflate, hasn't lost air on me yet, packs small, and is comfortable. Great option, great price.

    6. superlite  star rating

      Interested in trying these on the trail. The air valve is cool.
