Pillow Lock™ System
Technical Features

Pillow Lock™ System

The Pillow Lock™ System comprises of self-adhesive hook-and-loop patches which are supplied with all Sea to Summit sleeping mats (as of Spring 2019),

Attached to your sleeping mat, these patches secure your pillow and prevent it slipping – yet they will not snag on clothing or other lightweight fabrics.

All Sea to Summit Pillows (as of Spring 2019) are compatible with this system. Existing pillows can be made Pillow Lock™ compatible by adding an Aeros Pillow Case.

    G’Day Mihail,

    Here’s how to tell if your Aeros Pillow is compatible with the Pillow Lock™ system: if it has the Pillow Lock™ symbol (see image at the top of this blog post) printed on it, it will work with the Pillow Lock adhesive patches. If it does not have this symbol, you will need to purchase a Sea to Summit Pillowcase for your pillow to make it Pillow Lock compatible. (The Sea to Summit blog is maintained from our offices in North America. It’s not possible for us to know what products a European discount reseller may be selling – even though you purchased the pillow in 2019, it may be a pre-2019 model)

    As far as the spacing of the self-adhesive patches is concerned, the patch locators printed on the Etherlight mat will work perfectly with an Aeros Ultralight Large pillow if it is Pillow Lock compatible.

    If you have any questions on the above, please email us at info@seatosummit.com – let us know where you are located (including city and country); we will be happy to assist you further

    Cheers,

    G’Day Darryl,

    Congratulations on purchasing a Comfort Light mat! The Pillow Lock™ self-adhesive patches should be in the packaging for your sleeping mat. The patches will secure any 2019 Aeros Pillow to the mat. If your mat was supplied without the self-adhesive patches, please email us at info@seatosummit.com – let us know your shipping address in North America and attach a copy of your receipt for the mat. We’ll be happy to mail you a set of Pillow Lock™ patches. If your Aeros Pillow is pre-2019, you will need the optional Pillowcase to make the Pillow Lock™ system work. If you have any questions on the above, send us an email to the info@ address and we’ll provide answers!

    Cheers,

    The Sea to Summit Team

    Recently bought Ether Light XT Insulated mat Regular and it looks like pillow lock system on it is not really compatible with my Aeros Ultralight Pillow Large (not sure how to check the model year but definitely bought it in 2019 from trekkinn.com) The surfaces pillow/patches do not match because hook-and-loop patches positioning seems to be to narrow for the pillow in size large.

    Now my question is there any way to use Aeros pillow Large with Ether Light XT Insulated mat Regular or I have to buy the pillow in regular size?
    As an idea, I guess positioning the patches on the mat wider than suggested by hint pictures would help but since patches are already applied I am not really sure I can use same them twice – remove and apply again but wider.

    Thanks in advance,
    Cheers,
    Mihail

    I recently purchased a ComfortLight mat. And one of my reasons for choosing an STS was the Pillow Lock system. But I did not realise this innovation was only adopted this year. If it turns out my mat was manufactured before this was introduced (I will need to look at it when I get home tonight), is there any way I can retro-fit it?

    Thanks for your question. The PillowLock hook-and-loop patches will only work with 2019 Aeros Pillows. If you email us at info@seatosummit.com and let us know your mailing address, we would be happy to provide you with a set of the hook-and-loop patches free of charge – but to make this work with your current pillow, you would need to purchase a Pillow Case.
    As a PCT Thru-Hiker, you will want to save as much weight as possible, so you may opt to go with your current mat plus the free hook-and-loop patches and purchase a 2019 pillow…

    Please let us know if we can assist you further.

    Cheers
