How many people like my pillow idea? I have been refining and reviewing the construction methods, the materials, and the overall look in what colors where chosen. I am learning quite a lot about the art of sewing. This has been nothing but FUN, FUN, FUN! Since I am an engineer in mind and job, this makes perfect sense. I feel like I am ready to commit to making more things if people found them necessary. Just let me know what you think. Do you think that this "Strap down" pillowcase is something that you would use? It doubles as a daypack or in town backpack for thru-hikers. I know my wife and I used them on the trail last year. Thoughts?
Just in case you are visiting and you are asking, what the heck is this guy talking about, here is me making my pillowcase before leaving on the AT last year. So this would be 2010. I personally told my wife, I voted this the best thru hike piece of gear I brought. (Other than my MontBell UL Down Parka ;)

Well folks, I have made some more pillowcases. Here are some pics from what I have been working on. I am just learning. Laugh if you would like, my feelings are not hurt easily. The first 5 photos are from the first black prototype that was made. Call this Proto A. Proto A weighed less than 3 oz.
