Camping pillows: Which are best?

First look: The Coleman Fold 'N' Go pillow, one of the cheapest models on the market, has a cotton cover and polyester stuffing. A flap is built into the cover so you can fold one side of the 12-by-20-inch pillow into the other, shrinking the size by about half.

Likes and yikes: Weighing in at about 10 ounces, the Fold 'N' Go is a soft, comfy pillow but may be a bit too mushy for most weekend campers. It takes about two Fold 'N' Go pillows to equal the size and loftiness of a typical home pillow. But at this price, that's not a bad idea.
