- Compact and easy to pack
- Great for neck support
Some users definitely find it too warming or too constricting. Additionally, it’s not great for people with long necks or slopping shoulders.
The first thing you’re going to notice when you see this travel neck pillow is it looks remarkably like a scarf. So, you may not think it looks as goofy as your traditional U-shaped travel pillow. Others believe this actually makes people look goofier; but they’re still fans of the comfortable support. It’s totally a matter of personal preference here; you’ll either love or hate the way it looks.
Either way, we think you should look right past the appearance of this and consider the functionality of it Essentially this is a neck brace tucked into a fleecy covering. There’s a sort of bracket that props onto your shoulders, and then props up your neck on the same side by creating a cradle for your cheek and chin.
It provides excellent support, but only on one side. If you want to move your head, you will need to unwrap the scarf covering and unfasten the velcro, then flip the whole thing over and wind it up again. That can be a pain – as can the heat on your neck. But this travel neck pillow is washable, so you don’t need to worry about the sweat smell. We do wish it were a little cheaper though.
What’s it made of? A wonderfully soft hypo-allergenic fleece.
What support does it offer? The neck brace design does exactly what you would expect it to – support your neck. At least on one side.
How do you wash it? This neck pillow is machine washable.
How big is it? 7.5 x 7.5 x 3.7”
How much does it weigh? 4.8 oz – that’s really quite light for a travel pillow.
What colors are available? Black, red, grey, coral
Will it break the bank? It’s a little higher than the average of about $25, but not by much – and it’s certainly not the most expensive out there.
