Camping Pillow Reviews

Updated on April 25, 2013

Sleep is an important part of our daily routine as it allows the body to rest and recover from different kinds of stress. Without sleep, no one will ever last a week. The first few days of sleep deprivation will cause fatigue and difficulty in concentration. Add more hours of sleeplessness and you get hallucinations. Next to these comes psychosis and ultimately, death.

It’s not just the sleep that’s important but comfort also counts. A lot of people wake up with backaches and stiff necks due to wrong sleeping position and lack of neck support. A crucial factor here is what you use to cushion your head and neck – pillows. You spend about one third of your life dozing, so why spend that one third in discomfort?

The right pillow can do wonders for the quality of your sleep and for your health as well. It will allow you to sleep comfortably and deeply without the neck strain so you wake up the next day feeling fully recharged.

When you go camping, one thing you look forward to is relaxation – a getaway from the stress of your daily urban routine. Hence, a good night’s sleep in the outdoors is also significant for a detoxifying vacation.

Compared with the pillows you use at home, camping pillows are specially designed for easy storage. This makes it easier for backpackers with a whole lot other tools in their packs. Here are some of the best camp pillows that are sure to get you floating into dreamland while camping.
