Great pillow!
I have been using these Cascade Designs lumbar support pillows for years and love them! They are practically indestructible and provide excellent lower back support, especially helpful on long road trips in the car. These pillows are made in the U.S.A. using only top quality materials and are worth every penny!

Purchased primarily for use in
Purchased primarily for use in my Honda Element which has particularly uncomfortable seats for distance driving. To date the lumbar pillow does provide extra support but I have not yet driven ant distance over 65 miles uninterrupted. Am anticipating a long drive in the 250+ mile range.

Hopefully Better Than Another Brand I Had
I had one of these made by another company a few years ago that I used when traveling. After less than a year, it stopped inflating. This cushion is comfortable and will be helpful for my lower back when traveling. I'd give it 5 stars but I don't know yet how it will hold up.

Very useful but has a longer term issue
I have had two of these inflatable lumbar support cushions. I have a life-long lower back issue and use these and another brand for lower back support. The Thermarest provides excellent, adjustable, comfortable support. However, in both cases, after a few months use, the pillow has had problems with losing air and deflates over 30-45 minutes of pressure from usage. The first time I contacted Thermarest about this and they requested that I return the pillow to them. They then supplied another free of charge. I have not tried submerging the pillow in water to locate the source of the leak, but I

Mine came with no valve instructions
The only insert with the pillow was a "self inflating sleeping pad user guide and warranty Information," and said digital instructions and videos were available on line. This product doesn't even show up as a listing or a search term on your website. I had to Google it to get to this page. And there are no valve instructions under the tech specs or FAQs and documents tabs. How about some assistance on how to deflate for packing?

The best!
I bought 2 is these years ago. I gave one to my daughter ands kept the other. After years it died so I bought two more. My back thanks you. Side note: the auto reviewer from Kellys recommended this to me. He was right. Love it.

Bring it everywhere!
The pillow works great for my back pain. I use it in the car at home and sometimes in the theatre. Easy to take along as it completely deflates and I can roll it, bind it w/ an elastic and bring it. I also use the pillow in the same way.

Makes flying sooooo much better!
I accidentally lost my first Therm-A-Rest lumbar pillow in Newark Airport while reorganizing my stuff after a flight and immediately bought another one. (I sure hope someone found it and is using it and that it didn't end up in the trash!) It makes a huge difference to have lumbar support on a flight. I made a strap to hold it after I roll it, including some fluorescent yellow, so hopefully I will not lose this one. I remember when I first read reviews that losing it / leaving it on a plane is somewhat of a problem. User error, not the fault of Therm-A-Rest! Buy one. Your back will thank you.

Best lumbar support made
I'm a physical therapist, and this is the only lumbar support I recommend to my clients. What I love about it is it has an infinite number of adjustments due to it being air-filled. Also, because of the self-inflating internal air-cell concept, it can be adjusted as you adjust your posture. Tip: in the car use it vertically instead of horizontally (and instead of your car's built-in lumbar support feature). Always put the valve down and on the side of your dominant hand. Excellent product. I've been using these for about 25 years!

Finally something that works for me
I have tried a ton of different solutions for my car that has poor lumbar support in the driver's seat. So far this is the best solution. Just did a 458 miles drive in one day and it was still working for me at the end of that drive. That you can adjust it one handed without looking at it while driving down the road is great. If it starts to feel too soft, lean forward slightly, pop the valve and it will self inflate. If it is too hard pop the valve and lean into it slightly to let air out. I accidentally shut the car door on it lived to tell the tale with no damage. While there might be somet

Great Addition for Uncomfortable Chairs
I bought two of these. One for my office chair and one for my econobox car. Both have no lumbar support and my back was killing me. I had my doubts these would help but it's been a month and I'm happy to say I'm pain free now. It's very easy to adjust the support from very little to a lot. Two things I will say. If your car has bucket seats then the lumbar pillow will be tight around your sides in your kidney area. I wasn't sure they would work because of this but I found the right of amount of inflation for me. Also, perhaps some sort of removable buckle might be helpful to keep the pillow in

Really short person
Laughing at the review from the really tall person, my daughter and I are really short people. I keep one of these in every vehicle and a spare for travel. I couldn't sit on an airplane or in a vehicle without it. Buying one for my daughter. These are awesome, highly recommend.

Infinitely Adjustable!
This is my second Therm-A-Rest lumbar pillow. I just had to get another after I lost the first. It's provides the perfect support for my back on airplane seats and auto seats, too. I love that it's infinitely adjustable; so I can vary it after a period of time. It's durable, too! AND it rolls up to a very compact size for stuffing into my backpack or other carry-on luggage.

Comfort in the Truck
I have had the previous version of this for many years and loved it, and this new version is even better. It is just as comfortable, and stays in place better than the old one. I am very happy with my back pillow.

A good support
Works fine except I don?t think it refills very well. I add air with my mouth when needed. I think the cap is where the leak is but actually I don?t use very much air anyway. Must not be screwing it down tight enough. Anyway I do recommend the product.

Great support
I bought this because I have lower back problems. Sitting in the car for extended periods of time can cause me problems. The pillow really helps give me support. Its nice because you can adjust the air so it works properly for you.

Hard to find and would
Hard to find and would have rather been able to buy the red one, but was unavailable. Works well (this is our second one we have purchased), but its much pricier than that last one we bought, Next time will get something more reasonable.

The versatile self inflating pillow
This is a great product. I use it for chair yoga, it puts one in the exact position to be slightly forward on your chair. It is also very comforting for placing to help your lower back while sitting. Its a good pillow. It can be deflated, & it takes up little room.

Good product
I purchased this for I have issues with my back. Use it frequently and it seems to deflate vs hold8ng air, which means it is far from making it comfortable for lower back pain. Why is it that it deflates? Is mine defective? Has anyone else had this same problem? Thanks! Was hoping to use it on my upcoming 6 hour flight 11/18th.

Lumbar Relief
I purchased this item, for my brother, who is a pilot. He was thrilled! It's perfect for those, who travel, as it folds up to basically nothing!

My Longtime ""Best Friend""
I have been using mine for years and wonder how I could do without it. I bought it for traveling on an airplane and now use it just about every day for so many purposes -- just sitting on a chair while reading or watching TV, as head support when doing certain yoga postures, while driving, and for providing extra back support while meditating. I have owned the same one for years and it has held up just fine. Also, the ability to adjust the quantity of air in the pillow means that I can make it thicker or thinner as required.

Travel cushion
I have a hard time with long airplane rides. This saves my back. Very compact so easy to pop in a carry on bag or purse and inflate when needed.

Perfect for travel.
I have had a bad back for about 20 years, and have tried a LOT of different lumbar supports in that time. Some are too big, some are too thin, some fall apart too easily, some get dirty quickly and can't be cleaned, and some are just plain useless. I have one that's comfortable in the house, but not in the car or office chair. I have another that's good in the car, but nowhere else, and I have one that's acceptable -- but not great -- in an office chair. Even the ones I got from my chiropractor don't work everywhere well, and are difficult to clean. And all of them are bulky to travel with (ex

does its job well
Although I'm a backpacker, I bought 2 of these for home/office use rather than for the woods. I'm a wee bit top heavy and sit at a desk job for 9 hours a day. I bought one to stay at work with me since my chair is far from ergonomic. I bought another to keep in my car since it doesn't have a lumbar adjustment. I was worried the piece would ruin since it stays in the car all day long...and recently it's been 105 degrees (and waaaay hotter with the windows rolled up all day). It's made extremely well and durable. I was nervous to pay this much for a pillow, but it keeps its form perfectly and it

Love this for flights and bus rides
This saves my back on flights. It is just the perfect width and also rolls up to about the size of a pop can. Helps my lower back so much. My favorite pillow on long rides anywhere. Very good quality just dont forget and leave it behind!

10 star worthy!!!
Wow! I bought this for my car but tried in our lounge chair first. This little pillow greatly increases the comfort of a chair and car seat due additional to the support it supplies. Now, I'm carrying it back and forth between our car and our home. I will be buying another one! Oh, and my mother loved it so much she ordered one for her home as well!

Back Saver
Put this in my car for the daily commute...perfect thickness to offer the right amount of lumbar support. It is thin, but you will be surprised that you dont need much to make a big difference. The support is solid and doesn't give like foam. 5 stars.

wish I bought this sooner
This little guy resolved some lower back pain that I've been having for a few months. I keep it at work and use nearly every day! I also bought one for my dad who's a pilot and has complained about back issues recently. He says it's been a game-changer for long flights where he sits for up to 12 hours at a time.

Practical and effective
I traveled overseas flying economy class and used the Therm-a-rest pillow. It gives excellent lumbar support to a point that I did not experience back pain or sciatica symptoms like I used to have in past trips. I then used it again on a 4 hour car trip and, again, it gave me a very comfortable ride. It can be carried around with ease as it can be deflated and rolled so it fits in my backpack taking minimum space.

A real miracle
I fly a lot and my back always aches. I tried this and was amazed at how it helped support my back without adding much bulk. I wish they would come in really bright designs because I accidentally left mine on an airplane - think I would have seen a bright one on the seat. I ordered a new one before I even got home because I do not want to travel again without it. I will be more careful in the future.

Bye bye, back and neck pain!
Best self-inflating lumbar support on the market due to its infinite adjustment capability. Take it from a physical therapist with 30 years of experience! Excellent product. Great for travelling as it packs very small.

I bought this to take to the beach. It works great. I can set it in the right spot and then adjust down the amount of air in it for customized support and comfort.

Doesn't hold up for long
I bought one of these pillows for my husband before we flew to Europe as he has back issues. He loved it for most of the trip, but after a few uses, the pillow stopped holding air. He returned it to REI for another and again, after several uses it is losing air, it seems like the seams aren't holding as the air doesn't seem to be coming out of the valve. He loves the product, but we're frustrated that it doesn't hold up long.

This was recommended as one of two options by my physiotherapist. I ordered both online and this was one that supported me well. It has travelled with me to and from Europe, UAE Colorado. It helps a lot and at times works great even as a support for my office chair.

Fantastic Lumbar Pillow
I love this item! When driving long days over more than a couple of hours, this little buddy is always in place in my car seat. You can make it really firm by maxing it out, or softer, by not blowing it up completely. Really love it!!

Great for pilots!
Bought this for flying because the one size fits all seats and gear on my body was tearing my lower back up. It compresses down and packs away and can be fully inflated just as fast. I have a couple Thermarest products and all of them are awesome!
