Backpacking for Side-Sleepers


Marshall H
 Share

Recommended Posts

I am a side sleeper and avid backpacker, now in my early 30's.  Life hurts more than it used to, and I am finding that I have trouble feeling rested/pain free when I backpack without my body pillow that I use at home. Does anyone know of a good solution/reputable product? I have seen some items on amazon but am skeptical of size/quality based on reviews.  Thanks for your input!

Hi Marshall and welcome to the forum! I'm also usually a side sleeper, I take along just one pillow (the Exped REM - tough to find currently) however and while I'm not exactly sure  if there's a certain weight / size that you are targeting perhaps something like the Exped Mega pillow would work?
