    Thanks for the Tom Bihn pillow!

    Such a clever thing -- I didn't think you'd be sending out two freebies in such a short time. I'm glad that it's a stuffable pillow rather than inflatable like the previous version! I'd post a picture, but sadly my camera's back at home while I make a rare visit to company HQ in California. I can say, though, the neck pillow was great on the plane trip down here, and the clear section of the outside pocket meant I could wear my photo ID and boarding pass around my neck while waiting to board the plane. That keeps my hands free for the other gear, and I even got to board early, because (I assume) it looks a bit like a neck brace when worn on the front instead of in regular pillow position. I walked stiffly to complete the illusion, and nearly got a free upgrade to first class, too.

    Also, happy coincidence, it's perfectly sized for liberating today's thin airline blankets -- just stuff inside the Dyneema horseshoe! When it's empty, I found that the pillow stuffs inside the beverage pouch on each end of my Super Ego, which is a handy place to stash it.

    Overall a very cool thing! When will these be available for sale on the website? And will there be any colors besides cloud white and bright red? MSRP? Stocking stuffers shopping, DONE for the year I think. And is "Bihllow" the final name? Nicely evocative of a day on a sail boat ...

      Hey timothy,

      Glad you liked it. The Bihllow is not just for travel, though - we wear ours 24/7. If you don't have to use your neck to hold your head up, you'll find that you have a lot more energy for other things.

      Price will be about $30. 1% of the profit of each Bihllow goes back to the Earth through the Bihn environmental initiative. Though we keep writing checks to The Earth, The Earth never seems to cash them, so we'll have to look into that.
      Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

            What's a Bihllow?

            I think I must have missed something. Is this a joke?

            I have used packing cubes with clothes in them as pillows when traveling -- they work OK. I guess that's like a Bihllow?

                        I loved that line.
