MEC stuffsack/pillow

I recently picked up the MEC stuffsack with the fleece on one side inside and am here to report it was excellent as a pillow. Just did some "camping" at a friend's place in France. I stuffed my primaloft jacket into the stuffsack and had a great sleep. The fleece is the softest I have ever felt. Great night's sleep.

Highly recommended for those of you looking to have a decent "pillow" on your tour.

Here's a link: MEC stuffsack/pillow

A snip at $13!

Thanks Lolly Pop,

This is a great touring product/idea. I love using a poofy jacket or vest for a pillow. Comfy and if it gets cold during the night, you can always put it on.

I want one. Unfortunately, the shipping cost they quoted was $19 to me in California. That's too much on a $13 (CAD) product. I can't see it. Too bad.

Perfect timing. I'm right in the middle of going to REI almost every night to pick up camping odds/ends, so I'll make this my next purchase.

Many thanks.
