The solution to this problem is to buy an inflatable pillow. These options can be decompressed or deflated for travel and storage making them a practical solution for people who need something more comfortable to rest their head on. If you’re looking for a backpacking or camping pillow, this list should help you find the right fit your your needs and head.
