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.

Great backrest with terrible valve syste

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.

    I use this pillow to support my lower back when we are riding our motorcycle. I have a wrap around back rest and this pillow fits right in the spot where I need support for my lower back. I think it works perfectly!

    Comments about Eagle Creek Back Buddy:

    I loved this product until I used it! After using it on one long airline trip and at my office, the air leaked and I can no longer use it. This is VERY disappointing because I have a bad back and this would be a perfect product for sitting..if it only worked for more than a few times.. It needs a better construction, I am petite, so my weight was not the issue.

              Life saver. Use this on flights, with rental cars and with lounge furniture while on vacation. Never, ever have had a problem. Used the same one since 2006!

              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.

                    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.
