You can use this pillow for camping trips or take it to the stadium to make the seat more comfortable. It also is handy when you're on a long car ride to help you or your passengers get comfortable. Because its inflatable its very adjustable. Because its deflatable it only takes up a little space, about the size of a baseball. And its FREE!!!

Step 1: Step 1: Get Some Wine in a Box
Box Wine is convenient and sold at most places you can buy wine in a bottle. The bag inside the box that holds the wine is very durable and has a leak-proof valve that is also very durable. This combination makes the ideal inflatable pillow.
Step 2: Step 2: Remove the Bag and Rinse It Out
Take the empty bag out of the box. Hold the open valve under a running faucet to get some water in the bag. Inflate the bag and close the valve. Now shake it up to rinse the inside of the bag. Otherwise it will smell like wine every time you deflate the pillow to pack it up. I want to smell coffee when I'm breaking camp in the morning, not wine, so I recommend you rinse the bag before going camping.
Step 3: Step 3: Use an Extra T Shirt As a Pillow Case
No point in taking extra gear, just use a T-Shirt as a pillow case. You'll be able to feel the valve and crack it open a little to let some air out to adjust the softness of your inflatable pillow. Works great and does the job.
Step 4: Step 4: Deflate the Bag When Packing Up
Smush all the air out of the bag and then close the valve. This makes the bag about the size of a baseball, easy to pack and it doesn't take up a lot of space. I like to keep mine inside my tent's carrying case so I always know where it is when I'm making camp.
