[at-l] pillows

I found the neatest thing in the trash today. Actually, it hadn't made it
to the trash yet. Some new pc work stations were being installed and part
of the packing material was a plastic bag that can be inflated. There is
a small flattened tube that acts as a valve. By inserting a drinking
straw into the tube air can be added or removed from the bag.

On first inspection, the bag seems to be very durable. It is light as a
balloon and looks like it can be folded up easily for packing when
deflated.  I plan to carry this would-be pillow on my next trip and will
post a report when I have had a chance to use it a night or two.  Has
anyone seen these before? Have you tried it as a camp pillow?  Hopeful
