UPDATE:

After spending quite a few nights cuddled up with my Klymit Cush pillow, I can safely a number of things.

1/ It still holds air, it’s not punctured or developed any mystery leaks.

2/ The Cush is the most comfortable pillow I’ve ever used.

3/ Whether you’re a back or side sleeper the pillow works.

4/ You really should buy one.

Available in the UK Here!



The seemingly never ending search for the ultimate pillow may be over. Stuffing a dry bag with spare clothes has always been the accepted norm when it came to a little night-time comfort which is fine unless … you don’t have any spare clothes to stuff the dry bag with, the outside of your dry bag is covered with all kinds of unspeakable substances or you’d actually like something which is border-line comfortable.
Pillows pretty much fall into one of two camps … self inflating, so they’re fairly bulky and heavy or air which means it’ll be lighter/smaller but may not offer quite as much comfort. One thing which doesn’t tend to differ, is the shape … generally they’re all pillow shaped, surprising that isn’t it.
This on the other hand isn’t shaped like a pillow, it’s 36″ long and 9″ wide without air in it. Once blown up those dimensions shrink a bit but not by much. The idea behind this pillow is that you fold it up/over … if you sleep on your back try folding it in half, if you’re a side sleeper, fold it over 3 times and it becomes 4″ thick. It even has ‘ear cut-outs’ which I’m hoping will help relieve the ‘I’ve had my ear chewed off in the night’ sensation I sometimes wake up with.
The Klymit (yes the same people who make the odd looking mats) Cush isn’t yet available in the UK but I’m sure they won’t be long.
I’ll be trying it out over the next few weeks, so I’ll report back then … fingers crossed, the search for the ultimate pillow may be over!

Before we fall headlong down this particular rabbit hole, I just want to make it clear that I have no answers, I only have questions. However, they’re questions that I believe we should all ask of ourselves and if we’re honest and truthful, then perhaps the answers and solutions will readily present themselves. Once upon […]

Rightly or wrongly, I kind of assume that other people assume that I only ever use meths stoves. The real truth is, I’ll happily burn any kind of fuel in my continual quest for another brew. I feel there’s a time and a place for every type of stove and conditions combined with your own […]

To most upright members of society, a tent peg will receive less thought than what they’re having for their dinner. Conversely, to the ardent bikepacker, the seemingly humble tent peg is a source of untold fascination. Length, diameter, material and obviously weight all require careful scrutiny if the Holy Grail of tent pegs is ever […]
