A large, lightweight pillow with lots of incorporated technology to promote comfort.
Big Agnes says:
You spend all that time and energy finding the best, temp-rated sleeping bag, pad, and tent, but then what's the likely cause of many a restless night's sleep? The pillow! You roll up a shirt that you sweat in earlier that day and expect to sleep well. Been there? Guessing, yes, and guessing you swore you'd rather bring your enormous, special-ordered orthopedic, 4.5lb pillow from home before you'd do that again. No need. The Q-Core Deluxe Pillow uses offset I-beam construction to provide a consistent and stable sleeping surface for your head. With a micro-adjust valve you can control how firm or soft your pillow is, and the four-way stretch nylon fabric is super soft next to skin. At 3.2oz, this pillow is the answer to fully deluxe snoozin' under the stars.
Big Agnes' Q Core Deluxe is large, it uses i-beam baffles to support your head really well, spreading the pressure across the pillow. For some strange reason BA have used a smaller valve on this pillow so its not compatible with the pumphouse pumpsack. But it has an anti-fungal coating on the inside so even the moisture from your breath when blowing it up won't turn into something nasty inside.
