My last Bucky was left in a hotel after serving it's duty for over 5 years. There are other brands but my thoughts are go with what you know. The Bucky neck pillow is great for travel or just sitting on the couch. Other reviewers complained that it's not compressible. It's not suppossed to be -- that's the whole point. If you want compressible, then buy and inflatable neck pillow. Yes, it's big, heavy and not compressible -- but it does exactly what it's supposed to do by providing neck support.

I have lived with the Bucky pillow for many years and think very highly of them. I don't sleep without it and carry it with me every time I leave home. I have had back surgery and this Bucky Pillow holds the neck part of my spine and works from side to side as well as on my back. I was so thrilled to find them on your site. I have given them to my friends and they are all thrilled with them. I have tried many pillows and none of them are as satisfactory as the Bucky.
Thank you, Bridgebaroness

I fly a lot including transatlantic flights. I won't fly without my Bucky pillow. It is very comfortable, molds to the shape I want, and doesn't take up too much space.

i bought this to take on my 3 week trip to europe, it is nice and comfortable. my only complaint is that it is a bit bulky and does not compact at all (thats because it is filled with buckwheat hulls). i will not take it on a trip when space is limited again. for a road trip or a shorter vacation, this would be fine.

The Bucky Utopia is the perfect travel companion. The buckwheat filling provides the perfect feel for resting your neck on a flight or in the car. The carrying case is the perfect addition to Bucky as well, it packs up inside of Bucky when not using it, and it is handy to have when Bucky is not needed. A great product!

it weighs about two pounds and is about the size of a football and does not compress at all. I can't imagine who would take this on a plane or lug it around in a suitcase--especially with the more recent airline fees and limitations on luggage.

I'm 6 ft tall and this isn't quite puffy enough to hold up my head and though the stuffing doesn't compress, it does move around a bit--so after a little while of use the marginal support squishes around into inadequate support. I'm sure though that for a smaller person for whom this fits, it would be very comfortable.

An inflatable pillow, while probably never up to the comfort potential of the buckwheat shells, can be inflated to accommodate your size and liking and is so light and small as to be trivial to tote around with you on travel. I keep mine folded away in my carry-on bag, ready whenever I go.

I could imagine using it in a car or for watching TV, if someone was so inclined to keep a football sized sack available at the ready.

Final Note: this has a warning to "not to heat in the microwave" because it has metal zippers (2 of them). So this can't be used as a neck and shoulder warmer--which is one of the reasons many people like buckwheat shells in the first place

This travel pillow is really well made with a nice plush cover. For me, the fill was too much. That was easily fixed by unzipping both the cover and inner liner and dumping out some of the "stuff" inside. I must have removed about 40% of the filling, and then this was pretty comfortable for me. If this was truly "my kind of pillow" I would give this 5 stars. As itr is, I gave it 4 stars since the buck wheat husks were a bit too firm for me.

The contruction, cover, and price are superb for what it is. For me, I found that I prefer memory foam type of pillows for travel on an airplane. I can't tell you what you will like, so I have stuck to the quality of the pillow from a manufacturing point of view. If you have experience and like this type of pillow filling (walnut shells, buck wheat husks, Australian Wombat toenails) you will be very pleased with the Bucky products - extremely well-made. If you like a softer type of pillow (as I do) you will probably be better off looking at memory foam type products.

I originally looked into "The Bucky" on the recommendation of my chiropractor who has used one for travel for years. Although it does not replace a therapeutic sleep pillow, it does do the trick very well when sitting on an airplane or in a chair at home reading. It provides support for my neck and does not sag or compress. The travel bag and the snaps for carrying during travel allow me to toss it over my shoulder like a purse or attach it to my onboard luggage, very nice features. I have not yet washed it, but the cover seems durable and easy to take off and on when needed. I don't anticipate any problems washing it.

I loved this pillow when I first leaned back and rested my head. I sleep with a Bucky bed pillow and for years have used a Bucky Baxter lumbar pillow for my neck when I use my recliner, It feels good. I took a bunch of the buckwheat hulls out to make it less firm and it is perfect for my neck, in the car, the recliner and I never go to the dentist without it. It let's me get comfortable in the dentist chair. I love the two handles so I can position it where I need it. Now that I have the Bucky Utopia Neck Pillow, I may try the Baxter as a lumbar pillow. I didn't really think my neck could feel better, but it does.

The Buckybag is made really well, and it comes in such delightful colors, I really wanted to love it. But for my neck it was too big and too stiff. I think neck pillows are very indivdual, either it fits you or it doesn't. The Buckybag may be perfect for you but it just didn't work for me. It also takes up a lot of room in the carry-on bag and it's heavier than I expected.
