5 Stars for Function / 1 Star for Durability (Think of it as Disposable)
on April 4, 2012
5 Stars in terms of function:
I have never slept so well on a 14 hour international flight. The Komfort Kollar completely supports your head so you can literally sleep sitting straight up without your head flopping over. It is comfortable and the fact that it deflates makes it easy to transport and store in your under seat bag when you are not using it.
1 Star in terms of durability:
THIS PRODUCT WILL EVENTUALLY LEAK. Mine always seem to leak in the seams. In fact i think of this pillow as semi-disposable. I have purchased many of these. Mine usually last through about 20 long flights.
Having said all of this, i will buy this pillow over and over again beacuse i have not come across any inflatable neck pillow that comes close in terms of function (if you know of one let me know). For $30, that's really only about $1.50 per flight. And when you are 7 hours into a 14 hour flight with no comfortable way to sleep. I would gladly pay $1.50 for one of these every time.
There are some ways you can prolong life:
- Don't inflate the pillow until you are at cruising altitude. If you inflate the pillow before you take off, once you reach cruising altitude and the external air pressure is lower, the pillow will be way over-inflated and this will cause damage and leakage.
- Go easy when you undo the velcro strap. The Velcro strap is the key to this pillows functionality. The velcro is pretty strong so don't yank on it too hard when you undo it.
