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.

Love the Ballast pillow

Great. Exceeded expectations

Great product !!

This is the best invention to come along in a long time, its easy to inflate n deflate its soft, l've used it at the pool, l'll be using it at the beach later this month, l cant wait to see how it works there.

Very comfortable and amazing customer service!!!

I love this pillow! Very comfortable, sand brushes off easily, and it doesn't blow away. You can adjust the firmness by the amount of air you put in. When my order didn't arrive on time, I emailed customer service and they responded within minutes and got me my pillow in time for my vacation. Very highly recommended!!! It seems expensive for a pillow but is 100% worth it.

Perfect beach pillow

Blows up easily & is the perfect size. I used it on my beach chair, but it’s ideal for sand, too. I used My own frozen gel insert, & it worked great.


Hands-down one of the best purchases I've made in a while. This was so handy to have at the beach and I would imagine would be great to take tons of different places. It's easy to inflate, it's comfortable, and it's easy to pack back up when you're done. If you're on the fence, just get it :)
