When you travel enough to care about travel accessories, you will find that getting a proper neck pillow is the single most difficult thing you’ll ever do. Those U-shaped pillows are not one-size-fits all, and in some cases make you even more uncomfortable. I have personally come across a variety of these comfort accessories, and they usually don’t live up to my expectations, or are too big or silly to use.
There’s a small chance that this Trtl Soft Neck Support Travel Pillow will be better than the others as it touts being scientifically proven to hold the head in a better ergonomic position during a long-haul flight. Of course, I can’t speak for it unless I’ve used it myself, but seeing that I’ve bunched up a coat and done almost the same thing before, it seems like this would be comfortable. It has an internal structure of foam surrounded by polyester fleece to cradle your head at the optimal angle.
The benefit of the materials it’s made of is that it can also be tossed in the wash whenever it’s seen a bit too much use. It’s not the most expensive pillow out there at $29.99, but if you travel quite often and have trouble sleeping without proper neck support, it’s worth a try. You’ll be able to color coordinate if you’d like, though if you choose red or coral instead of black or grey, the price will pop up by about 3 bucks.
