  • Patent number: 4914765
    Abstract: A pillow assembly includes a top and bottom panel joined together to provide a pillow having an inner cavity accessible through an end opening formed with a closeable fastener. A scoop element is tethered to the pillow and is used to fill the cavity with on-scene shiftable, granular material such as sand, following which the scoop element is stowed within a pocket formed on the outer face of the pillow bottom panel. One or more other pockets on the bottom panel allow stowage of personal articles. In use, a person's head is comfortably supported atop the pillow while the granular material within the pillow shifts to accommodate the scoop element and other articles within the pockets.
