    The Minion is a strange accessory. Originally designed to be used as a pillow, it quickly morphed into a multipurpose piece of gear that will do almost anything you ask it to. Soft, 10D fabric on one side, waterproof Sil-nylon on the other, with synthetic insulation in the middle, it can adapt to use as a pillow, stuff sack, hand warmer, face buff, sit/kneel pad, fanny pack (or bum bag in the UK and Australia), and even a food rehydration cozy; In an emergency it can even function as a hat or balaclavaOne size fits most.

    Size Length x Width: 24" x 20" (61cm x 51cm)


    Synthetic material weights may vary +/- 5% due to production variances.

      This is where my quilt lives when it is in my pack. I got the middle insulated one so it is a little warmer and fuller. Comes with me year round.

    2. Great useful multipurpose item.  star rating

      The minion is great. As a pillow it is my absolute favorite. I stuff my down jacket and legging in at night so they're nice and warm in the morning. I like to wrap it around my camera strap and it keeps my hands warm while shooting in the winter.

    3. A great pillow but way more. It's a keeper  star rating

      We were not 100% sure what we were ordering actually when we ordered 2 4oz Minions but our curiosity was peaked and we had a hunch. This is a great item. First of all, I have never been able to find a really comfortable pillow for hiking and as I get older and days out longer it has been a (excuse the pun) real pain in the neck! I have tried no pillow, inflatable pillows, travel pillows and nothing was comfortable. The first thing I did with the Minion was use it as a pillow. I stuffed in my down jacket and my shirt and it was great! In fact, I was tossing at home recently and grabbed it, stuffed it and tossed my bed pillow on the floor and slept great. When hiking I really liked the idea that it kept my down jacket right (and glasses)where I could find them easily in the night and both my shirt and jacket hand no morning chill or dampness to it. It fits on my head fine but worked great as a cozy, but I did wrap my pot with my towel to protect the fabric. I love it as a hand warmer but am trying to adapt it to a wrap around hand muff by hooking on a couple of micro biners, some 550 and wrapping around my waist so I can take my gloves off, leave them in the minion to stay warm, work till my hands ache and then toss em back in the muff stationed right in front of me. When packing I toss my bag with my spare contacts, cleaner, glasses, meds and cleaning stuff inside my pack and it adds protection but also allows me to find the essentials quickly by feeling in my pack since I am darn near useless if I pop out a contact by mistake. All in all we give thumbs up to this. Is it essential? Well, for me, to get a good night sleep, yes. Is it able to be used in multiple ways? yes. Quality and US made? yes. That means for me, it is a keeper
