    Used to be a great product with an attached valve cover. Now the valve cover comes off easily and gets lost. Terrible engineering. Usually retains inflation anyway but not always.

    Won't stay inflated

    Comments about Eagle Creek Back Buddy:

    I have an earlier version of this back buddy thats works very well. This new version will not hold air and deflates within a few minutes. The valve that is used to inflate and deflate does not seal properly. The earlier valve still works well after years of use.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Back Buddy:

        I have had my back buddy for at least 5 years, can't remember when I really bought it. Took it along as a pillow on several bike tours and kayak weekends. But loved it best during my year and a half of chemo infusion sessions. Cancer is completely gone and this pillow helped make my experience more comfortable. Will take it along camping for several more years I am sure. I like the shape better then typical pillow, works at my back but supports my neck and head properly. I carry a small air line style pillowcase in the pocket in the back of the pillow.

          The back buddy always find a place in my travel bags and comes in very handy when I happen to be on bumpy roads on on a long car journey or maybe in an economy class seat.
          I have gifted this to friends who suffer from back problems and they are always very thankful for it.

              Comments about Eagle Creek Back Buddy:

              I bought one because I suffer from chronic back pain and travel/drive a lot. In theory it's a great product but the first one sprung a leak after less than a dozen uses. I purchased two more to see if it was a fluke and one of those sprung a leak after only three uses.

                I liked the rapid inflation-deflation for travel, and the strap let it work well for daily office chair use. However it soon start delating rappidly - the way of all inflatables. Pulled the bladder out of the cover, immersed and found seam leak (follow the bubbles). A drop of vinyl glue fixed problem ($3). Bladder was found to also make a good bath tub pillow.
