gear – Exped “Foot Pump Pillow”

We love the new Exped mattresses despite the one with the leaky valve that failed on Mt. Whitney last summer.

One of our few (minor) complaints, they’ve answered:

Exped’s down-filled mattresses are ingenious, but they took so long to inflate that you always end up just calling it good enough when you’re halfway done.

Now Exped is making a pillow filled with open cell foam that makes blowing up your sleeping pad a lot easier. From this angle the pillow looks like it would be as comfy as sleeping on a piece of firewood, but you’ll have to trust me that it’s not too bad.
