If you're the type of traveler who often finds yourself bobbing forward, the Ezysleep Travel Pillow is a good solution to avoid uncomfortable neck strain. With 360-degree support for the neck, travelers sleeping in an upright position get the full head and neck support they need for a pain and embarrassment-free flight. There aren't any user-written reviews on this product, so it's not clear how well it holds up over time.
Excellent neck support for "head-bobbers." The Ezysleep Inflatable Travel Pillow's standout feature is its neck rest, which prevents head-bobbing, an issue that often leads to stiff and sore necks. Editors at AllAboutYou.com say, "Reduce neck strain and have a more comfortable kip on long journeys. Developed over three years, this inflatable pillow will support your head, neck and chin so you can sleep in the seated position." A TripAdvisor.com commenter says, "There's nothing worse than your head lolling forward and you wake up covered in your own drool."
Alan Hedge, director of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Laboratory at Cornell University recommends this travel pillow, according to Inc.com. The pillow is designed specifically to make sleeping upright comfortable. Ezysleep offers a 30-day, money-back guarantee.
Easy to inflate and deflate. The Ezysleep Inflatable Travel Pillow is easy to inflate and use, and deflates for easy storage when not in use. We didn't find any information on the dimensions of this pillow or how much it weighs, however. It doesn't have a removable cover, so hand-washing is best.
