Calling all frequent travellers - do you have a favourite travel pillow that has saved you sleepless nights on board?
CHOICE is going to review some of the most popular travel pillows on the market and we’d love your input and thoughts. Do you have a favourite? What do you look for in a travel pillow (compact? comfort? a smart design?)? Or, maybe you have another top tip for getting some sleep on board that you’d like to share.
I’ve actually never used one before so I’m keen to see if it is “revolutionary” (my ex-flight attendant father says they’re the best things ever!) or whether it’s just another thing to carry, taking up space in carry-on!
My wife recently returned from an overseas trip with an inflatable pillow for your feet. Seems they are all the rage in Japan now. She says this is much more important than the one for your head. I’m going to try it out next month…
Just remembered I was supposed to come back here with an update
I used it on flights to and from Europe, and it made a significant difference to my comfort, trying to sleep in economy. Because it raises your feet and lower legs, it means your body is less bent when trying to get comfortable, if that makes sense.
I have the original First Class Sleeper. Love it after many long hauls. This is a newer design. It essentially lets you slouch in the seat with support everywhere so it is somewhat like a slanting bed, but not quite.
