Teton Sports Camp Pillow Review

Brief Overview

TETON Sports Camp Pillow

Teton Sports is a privately held firm which was started in 2005 in Utah and is owned by Scott Holmes, who started the firm to facilitate products for people to make traveling and staying in the outdoors easier.

The Teton Sports Camp Pillow follows the vision of the company closely and is a product that is good to look at - and is like a traditional pillow only that it is not.

The pillow has a smart design and ensures that it can be used as a camping pillow, with the comfort of a traditional pillow.

Who is it for?

The Teton Sports Camp Pillow is for campers and travelers, who could be traveling by bus/train or plane on a long journey and need to rest their back and neck.

The pillow provides excellent lumbar and back support, which makes it a must have for people with a spinal problem, or for old people who are traveling over long distances. 

The Teton Sports Comfortlite is ideal for car camping and is perfect because of its size, comfort, and the superb support that it provides.

Teton Sports Camp Pillow: Key Features

Small Dimensions

TETON Sports Camp Pillow Review

Do you travel quite often and need to keep your backpack small and light in weight? Or are you an adventurer and do not want to waste too much space to pack basic amenities like a pillow or maybe a blanket?

If the above is true, then the Teton Sports Camp Pillow is specifically for you.

Measuring only 12 x 18 inches, the Teton Sports Camp Pillow is small but sturdy in its make and weighs only 10 oz.

The small dimensions also ensure that the pillow is easy to fit in a travel bag, and can be carried comfortably.

High on Comfort

Imagine a pillow so soft, that it is ideal for babies too!

The Teton Sports Camp Pillow is made up of brushed P5 poly hi-count, the texture of which is super soft and is filled with SuperLoft Elite 4-Channel Hollow fiber, making it super soft.

The poly-flannel pillow is perfect for a comfortable sleep on a camping trip or a long journey.

The large surface area of the Teton Sports Camp Pillow makes sure that your head gets plenty of space to move around and rest when you plan to sleep.

Also, the pillow’s design maintains its shape even after regular use - which is a huge plus point.

Ease of Use

The Teton Sports Pillow can be unpacked from its sack, and that is it - it is ready to use!

Easily the best feature of the Teton Sports Pillow is its ease of use, where there is no need to inflate the pillow.

Why?

The pillow is self-inflatable, and lofts automatically to give you the necessary support and comfort.

The Teton Sports Camp Pillow can be washed in a machine, along with its pillowcase. The pillow also compresses down on its own in case you need to stuff it in your bag or cramp it in a corner.

Support

The Teton Sports Camp Pillow provides much needed support to your back, neck, and shoulders in case of a long journey.

The pillow is a top fit for someone who needs lumbar support in case of a back problem or is advised by the physician to not travel for long periods of time.

Teton Sports Pillow did not compress under the pressure of my head when I tested it the first time, and it was comfortable for my head too.

Value for Money

Small size, lightweight, machine washable, comfortable to rest on and ideal for people with spinal problems. With a price range of $12 - $20, the Teton Sports Camp Pillow is high on value for money and makes any other pillow in the same category look like a meager product.

The Teton Sports comfortlite self-inflating pillow is made from high quality materials and is priced pretty low for the amount of features it has, hands down!

Customer Reviews

​I first used this pillow on my camping trip to the rapids in Colorado back in 2011, and it has been my partner on every plane ride I have since had. Extremely comfortable, and the perfect size for my head - it does not succumb under pressure and can cutely fit between my things in my backpack, which is sometimes pretty tiny to fit something as important as a pillow in it.
My night’s sleep in Colorado in 2011 was great, and since then has been because of this super comfortable pillow.” - Sebastien Rice
I ordered 2 of these a year before, and the pillows have been the perfect fit for me and my husband on our car camping trips around Texas. The pillows were easy to pack and super easy to ease as they are self-inflatable, which is an extremely helpful feature which saves a lot of our time and energy. We thought the pillows would crease if we fit them too tightly in our bags and they did, but by a couple of hours they looked normally plain and perfect. I would highly recommend this brand.” - Alice Iwobi
I bought this for my camping trip with my friends, and I was so happy as soon as I opened the package because the pillow is exactly what I was looking for. It is super light, can compress down to as small as a pouch in your backpack, and has enough padding to make you forget that you are not sleeping on your pillow from back home. I wanted to find a disadvantage for the Teton Pillow, but after a year of use, I cannot find any.” - Remy Mertens
I want to start this review by saying that I have replaced the pillow on my bed with the Teton one, and it makes me sleep better at night. I first used it when I borrowed it from a friend back in college, and it is very light and easy to use and wash. I give it 5 out of 5.” - Jesse James
The product was smaller than I expected, but it does well by fitting in my rucksack and barely taking any space. A couple of times I had to find the pillow in my sack, that is how compactly it stored itself. It perfectly matches the pattern of the sleeping bag that I ordered from Teton, and that is a big plus for me.” - Chris Hiddlestone
