A good nights sleep!
Where's your other hand? Between two pillows... Those aren't pillows!!
I use my fleece as a pillow, which is fine as long as it's not so cold I'm wearing it then having to use my trousers as a pillow, which isn't very comfy under yer 'ed at all really.
Older men need pillows, masterluke. Wear and tear, and arthitic growths on the spine tend to mean that neck support is increasingly useful.
Hopefully, you'll be old enough one day to appreciate a good pillow...
Play.com £4 pillow update:
Its real weight on my digital scales is 170g, it's machine washable at 30C and is an actual real pillow!
In the stuff sack with an MSR Pocket Rocket case and a coaster for scale:
And out of the stuff sack:
It's a bit of a bugger to get back in the bag, pardon my french, but otherwise seems a bit of a bargain for the money. I've never been able to get on with inflatable pillows so this looks like just the job.

Going through my options once again i think i may have found my perfect solution, the cheapo (but good) Decathlon down jacket i mentioned elsewhere earlier.
I've always stuffed into the same drysack i use for my down bag so completely forgot about it's "stuff sack".
It's 35 x 25cm with 15cm of (initial) loft and the stuff sack weighs 27gr, so leaving my "luxury" pillow at home i'll be saving 198gr plus a bit of pack space.
I carry it anyway for summer nights round camp and to use in winter to boost my sleeping bag.
I guess i'll have to sleep on it tonight for experiments sake.
Stuff spare clothes in stuff sac or inside a spare top. Usually have something down in winter so extra comfort there.
Haven't read the whole thing so sorry if mentioned already - Is it maybe that so many folks are now using thick airbeds (& in winter often on top of another mat) that the pillow thing is an issue? I guess if you're going to make like the princess & the pea you could use your boots or rucsac under a pillow to give it a height boost. When we car camp we sometimes use a double side thermarest clone that is extra thick & I have to boost my pillow with a holdall or somesuch. Works fine.
