The award-winning Fillo Elite backpacking pillow brings clever design to an often-overlooked piece of gear: the humble camp pillow. Fillo Elite is the ultralight version of our award-winning Fillo. At a fraction of the weight (less than 3 oz) and packed size, it still offers impressive height and cushion despite its ethereal weight.
We decided to bring clever design and luxurious attention to an often-overlooked piece of gear: the humble backpacking pillow, which is essential to a comfortable night’s sleep. We designed the Fillo™ Elite with a layer of 100% Post-Consumer Recycled Primaloft® insulation, combined with a 3” I-beam baffled air cell and an ultra-soft jersey cover. The result is a pillow that cradles your head nicely, yet packs down as small as a Kefir lime.
And while the Fillo is amazing for backpacking, it’s just as great for other adventures. You can bring it on an airplane, a long roadtrip, or use it as lumbar support, or keep it stashed in your pocket for an emergency nap.
I love this pillow. I love the longer length of it and don’t find it particularly crinkly like other inflatable pillows. The cover is soft and it packs up small. I do pop my sit pad under it sometimes for a tiny bit of extra height but other than that it’s perfect for my needs.
