A real live looking pillow, nothing fancy about this- But it compresses to Nothing, So its easy to Travel with

Easy to Take Anywhere, Simple to Use, Very Versalite - Takes up no Space

Here is a travel pillow that really looks like a smaller version of a bed pillow. My kind of pillow, because it is uncomplicated. You can use this pillow really anywhere. Camping, back packing, on the airplane, on a train, anywhere you need to nap.Also, you can use it behind you back, behind your neck, under your leg or legs, behind your knee, or as a bed pillow- many ways to us the pillow. You don't even have to blow up the pillow, so you don't need any fancy blow up tools. You just fluff the pillow and you are ready to go. One more thing to note is the the pillow comes in 4 sizes.

Small - 12 inches by 16 inches

Medium - 14 inches by 18 inches

Large - 16 inches by 23 inches

XLarge - 16.5 inches by 27 inches

This large and extra pillow is really the size of a standard size pillow. The great thing is that the pillow is compressible, so you don't even notice it.

A few other benefits that you might not think of initially. But when you look at it further, you might surprised:

  • It is super light
  • You can wash this rectangular travel pillow in the washing machine
  • It does no have an odor
  • It fluffs up nice and there is enough fluff to give you great support
  • You can use it behind your head, your neck, your leg, your knee, and your back
  • The cover the pillow the pillow is very luxurious
  • You can pack the pillow easily. It won't take up a lot of space. Think about when you travel- space is premium when you are trying to get ready for a trip whether is 2 days or 8 day, domestic or international
  • Finally, it is comfortable. You want a pillow that will allow you to fall asleep. This one does.

You Want Something Simple!

I was just talking to someone how we don't love the air pillows. First you usually have to blow hem up - I didn't even mention if they spring a leak...And they easily can!

Then, they have to hold their air; I'm not even talking about a big leak!

Then, you have to deflate them. Who wants o do all that?

      I've never travelled with a neck pillow before, but I have seen people use them in airports before now. I can never sleep when travelling anyway.
