About this project
The PackPillow is the first-of-its-kind, backpacking pillow that will soon be an essential piece of your backpacking gear. The PackPillow's unique design allows it to be more comfortable, lighter weight, more durable, and more useful than other backpacking Pillows.
When not being used as a pillow, the PackPillow is reversible to protect the face-friendly fabric and expose the water resistant rip-stop nylon for you to use as a seat cushion.
While other backpacking pillows take up space, the PackPillow reduces space while functioning as a stuff sack that is specially designed to conform to the shape of your backpack.
For day hikes where your large backpack isn't necessary the PackPillow has an optional strap, so you can leave your large pack at base camp and use the PackPillow as a lightweight summit pack.
The PackPillow has 6-Liters of internal space; which is plenty to hold water bottles, food, and clothing layers. The PackPillow also has a hole for a hydration bladder and tube.
The single strap is comfortable for all day hiking and reduces weight since it is only one strap.
