Ballast Outdoor Gear

Ballast Beach Pillow


Ballast is the only pillow designed to withstand the wet and windy conditions at the beach. Choose between two fashionable color variations, and a fun pattern design that features the lovable Ballast Beach Sloth.


Built For The Beach

The beach is among the most comfortable and relaxing places on earth, but it’s even better with a pillow. Ballast is the only pillow designed to weather the saltwater, sand, and coastal winds of our shorelines, allowing you to experience the best beach nap of your life. Ditch that rolled up towel or shirt, and treat your lovely head to the luxurious beach pillow it deserves.

  • Soft, padded top
  • Cooling gel pack sleeve
  • Cradles neck and head
  • Easy to inflate
  • Packs into its own pouch

How To Make Your Pillow Stay Put

Chasing flying pillows is no fun. Ballast pillows stay put, so you can stay comfortable and relaxed. Here’s how it works.

Easy To Pack And Carry

When you’re done for the day, just empty out the pouch, and the pillow folds into its own compact carrying case, making it easy to store away for your next adventure.

Make Chairs More Comfy

Be sure to check your chair for compatibility with the Ballast Pillow.

Chairs must have an opening along the top, or sides, for the bands to slip through and attach to the pillow.

Stay Cool and Comfortable

Don’t let the heat drive you off the beach. Stay cool with our custom designed cooling gel pack. Store it on ice until it’s nice and cold, and then slip it into the Ballast pillow sleeve, which positions the pack along the base of the neck for maximum cooling relief. The pack can also be heated to warm you on cool days or while stargazing at night.

Get this pillow!

Beach life elevated with this pillow… sad I waited so long to order! I had an issue with my order and they went over and beyond to make sure I had the pillow before my trip. Highly recommend this product and company to everyone!

Relaxing just got better!

This pillow was everything I wanted it to be!! No more rolling an extra towel as a pillow, or using the crook of my elbow... it's comfy and really DID stay put in the wind!! It's genius. I love it so much I bought a second one for my niece and she felt like the queen of the beach! haha. Totally recommend!

I should have bought two!

Initially skeptical and only bought one—it came in the mail and I bought a second right afterwards. Laying on the beaches of Maui have been on point with our Ballast Beach Pillow!!!

I travel for work and was tired of carrying so much in my backpack. Saw the FB add and bought. It is nice and compact and very comfortable when blown up. Love the sloth design. I'm actually buying another!
