The Minion is a strange accessory. Originally designed to be used as a pillow, it quickly morphed into a multipurpose piece of gear that will do almost anything you ask it to. Soft breathable fabric on the inside, waterproof silnylon on the outside, and synthetic insulation in the middle. The Minion can adapt to use as a pillow, stuff sack, hand warmer, face buff, sit/kneel pad, fanny pack (or bum bag in the UK and Australia), and even a food rehydration cozy. In an emergency the Minion can even function as a hat or balaclava, for most people.

Important Note: Custom orders cannot be changed after order placement. Returned custom orders or custom orders cancelled after 48 hours will incur a 20% restocking fee. No exceptions.

excellent for cold hips/back

My sleeping bag is a little thin on 2 back panels. i often get a cold hip or back. Just returned from a central Australia hike with very cold overnights (-3 to 4 celsius). Popped the minion under my thermals and problem solved! And it weighs nothing. Brillian bit of kit. Maybe rejig it and make it as just a straight rectangulat piece, a little longer, and no pressstuds, etc. Lots of folk get the cold hip and this is an easy resolution. Better than stuffing my down jacket in the bag.

My goodness, this is a clever idea!

Within the first two weeks of owning my Minion, I think I may have tried packing every piece of my gear in it at one point or another. I settled on using it for my entire sleep system. I rolled my Thermarest XTherm pad into the Minion, and had room inside the pad roll for my EE quilt, long johns, Cocoon pillow, EE hoodlum, EE booties, EE mittens, AND a battery-powered pad inflator, and it all stuffs into the sleeping bag compartment of my pack. At night I stuff my puffy jacket and Cocoon pillow into the Minion, inflate the Cocoon for just the right loft, don the long johns, Hoodlum, booties and mittens and I'm toasty for the night. At least, I hope so! Doesn't get cold here in Texas but I'll put them to the test this summer in the Rockies. In the summer, it still comes in handy. It's a table, a chair, a stuff bag - the possibilities are endless and appreciated. This is one fine piece of ultralight multifunctional gear.
