Picture this, you’re flying from New York to Singapore trying to sleep to pass the 18 hours; good luck you were only given an awful oversized or undersized scratchy flea pillow.
Well this doesn’t always have to be the case, with some of these pillows you’ll end up sleeping for 36 hours there and back from your destination by accident.
I’ve tried each and every one of these pillows to see exactly which one you should be using and to make this list as exhaustive as possible. Reviews have been taken into account as well as many other factors so that Amazon reviews aren’t the only think influencing the decision.
#5 The J-Pillow
This one should come as no surprise to anyone as it was Britain’s Invention of the Year in 2013 and has topped the charts since.
Now should it have been the invention of the year, eh probably should’ve been something a little more important however, this really is something special for travel
It’s like getting a massage from ten different angles to hit all the right spots at the same time. There isn’t much quite like this one as it really does lend to back support while providing almost unmatched comfort.
- Only Issue: Rather hard to carry around because of it’s shape
#4 Inflatable Footrest Travel Pillow
Looking for something small, light, and compact? This ones for you as it comes in at just 3.2 oz and is remarkably tiny!
It is quite comfortable and provides unique capabilities for long haul flights. It also inflates quite quickly in just 35 seconds for me so don’t worry about bringing along a huge pump.
- Not as comfortable as non-inflatable
- No lie, you will look a bit strange with one
#3 MLVOC Travel Pillow 100% Pure Memory Foam Neck Pillow Travel Kit
This one is just beautiful, there’s a reason why memory foam is so widely advertised and that reason is that it is just plain undeniably unbeatable.
Nothing beats memory foam and only a couple pillows beat this one for long haul flights. It is decently small, reasonably priced, and my neck was loving every single second.
Oh and it is sweat resistant too so don’t worry about it getting gross and smelly after one use, it wicks sweat like nothing.
- Not quite as compact as other pillows
#2 Everlasting Comfort Travel Pillow 100% Pure Memory Foam Neck Pillow
Comfortable, only 3$ more than most on the list, stylish, what more could be asked for? This one is almost perfect and you’ll be hard pressed to find something better for the price point.
Everlasting Comfort pillow comes in at just 21$ and employs memory foam and fantastic outer material to make it extremely soft.
Everlasting Comfort also at the time of this article gives lifetime replacement policies so no worries here.
- Expensive shipping depending on your location
#1 Ostrich Pillow Go
Man oh man Ostrich Pillow is killer, coming in at a higher price point you might expect it however. Honestly though, I would pay triple for this, my neck was in softness heaven.
Nothing in this world can come close this year to this pillow for just instant pleasure. It doesn’t seem to ever misshape and it’s material just feels like pure quality.
If it were not for it’s shipping cost up here it would have been even more grand of an experience. Don’t let that dissuade you though this is well worth every penny!
- More expensive
In the end there is no one perfect pillow for everyone, there is the best pillow for most people but you may be different.
My advice is to know what you like and buy based on that, if you do that you can’t go wrong. This article was a bit different than usual so I appreciate you sticking around all this way!
