The TravelRest is worn across the body allowing for a natural sideways sleep position. It won’t slip around as it’s held in place with a tether that goes around your seat headrest or your body. There is an additional tie that attaches the pillow to the seat-belt. The pillow inflates very easily (only a couple of breaths are needed) and deflates to a tiny 2 inches by 9 inches.
As an inflatable pillow, it’s lightweight and highly portable. But unlike other inflatables on the market, it does this without sacrificing any of the support needed for a comfortable rest. Just read some of the reviews below collected by the manufacturer from major newspapers and travel writers:
- The pillow inflates in 3-4 breaths, deflates in seconds. Adjust it to the exact level of firmness and support you need.
- The pillow enables you to rest in a natural position that supports your entire upper body!
- Attaches easily to most high back seats or headrests, so it won’t slip away. The tether can also be wrapped around the body if no seat back is available.
- Designed for extreme portability. The pillow only weighs 10 ounces. Rolls it up and pack it away, or snap it onto your roller bag for quick access.
- Works in planes, cars, trains, buses, trams, airport terminals, stations, wheelchairs.
