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!

BB200 – when the mud settles.

Despite my best efforts, I’m sat here writing this surrounded by the intoxicating aroma of bacon butties. Why do I smell of grilled pork products?
