I travel very often and cannot sleep AT ALL on the go (planes, trains, buses..everywhere). So out of desperation I have tried the various U shaped pillow, leaning against my bf, the seat head flaps, the window, curling up in a little ball (i'm quite small so i can do this) - and nothing worked (mainly because when I sleep my whole body collapses into jello). After much research I purchased the TravelRest based on the good feedback and it made the most amount of sense: I lay on my pillow, I can lean on this product. Sold. Let me tell you, its worth every penny. Ignore anyone who says it looks funny or that you will be embarrassed inflating it. It takes 2 breaths and though it is a bit bulky when inflated, you won't notice when you are unconsciously sleeping in bliss. You can tie it to the seat or use it like a messenger bag, it is even nice against your significant other's shoulder. It really relieves the pressure on my neck and allowed my body to relax - Finally! I took 2 flights over 10 hours each that I fly regularly and the TravelRest made these trips a million times better. I now no longer fear flying coach!
I also purchased the special pillow case that goes with it, which I also recommend. It packs a little larger however its a great feel and does make a difference especially on the seams of the pillow.
In the perfect world I would fix the anchor of the strap at the top. It uses a little plastic pinch device where you can adjust the length of the cord, however once you put weight on the pillow this never stays in place. So I usually wrap the cord around it self and make a light knot so it will hold my head without loosing slack. I'd prefer something where I didn't have to tie it - I get nervous tying the cord, worried that I won't be able to un-tie it in a hurry.
Additionally; customer service is amazing! Thanks so much to the helpful staff who make sure I had a great product in a hurry for my travels. They answered all questions and issues I had quickly and professionally.
I can't recommend this pillow enough - not only is it well made but the company cares about your experience. Don't hesitate and buy this product!
This product deserves a minimum of 4 stars. My original review failed to take into account some additional ways to use the pillow effectively.
First off, the excellent:
1. The pillow is very easy to inflate, and only takes 3-4 puffs of air depending on your lungs. It is also very easy to deflate, rolls up, and takes up a minimum of space in your carry on bag.
2. The pillow is comfortable enough for an inflatable. It is covered in a soft faux velvet that doesn't irritate the skin or cause discomfort due to pressure points. You can make it even more comfortable with a small cotton pillow or even by putting a cotton pillow case over it, if you prefer that.
3. When it used properly it will support your head and neck very well and will allow you to sleep on an airplane, car, or even sitting in the airport lobby.
4. The 'arm' of the pillow resting along your chest and mid section is very comfortable. I found it soothing since I tend to sleep holding a pillow anyway. Your mileage may vary on that one though.
A Few Problems:
The pillow can be hard to keep in one place if you use the rope to fasten it to the seat back. There are two bands that connect the pillow to your chair: the first is a loop that you can put around your belt, your seat belt, or even a belt loop. This connection works well and is fastened in place by a quality metal snap. However, the top is held in place by a nylon piece of rope that you can adjust with a plastic thump clasp. It is intended to go around the backside of your seat and then tighten down to hold the pillow in place. This can work pretty poorly on certain airplanes because A. the seat backs in are sometimes slick, B. the nylon rope doesn't have any traction to it (although this is intentional because it allows the thumb clasp to move easily), and C. The top of some airplane seats are angled and as time passes the rope works itself free. My experience was that it was very hard to make the cushion stay in place for more than an hour at a time, and it required readjustment frequently. This may frustrate the person sitting next to you, or the person behind you who you keep turning around and looking at while you make adjustments!
After receiving some additional information from the makers of the TravelRest pillow, I've learned that there is an alternative (and far superior in my opinion) way to use the pillow that involves wearing it like a messenger bag by connecting the pillow strap to the bottom strap. This forms a loop you can put around your body and which keeps the pillow much more stationary. Using the pillow in this fashion is easier and more secure. I'd recommend using the pillow this way virtually all of the time.
2. The pillow only gives you support on one side at a time, unlike traditional neck pillows. If you shift while sleeping, you will find yourself with a massive neck cramp.
However, you can easily shift the pillow from one side to the other if you're 'wearing it' messenger style. This alleviates that problem pretty satisfactorily.
Advice and Observations:
1. Don't over-inflate the pillow. It is actually more comfortable at about 80-90% capacity.
2. It is easy to let air out once the pillow is in place, but it is much harder to add air because the access point is on the bottom of the pillow. Go for a little over full and then let air out as necessary.
This is pretty solid invention for sleeping on a plane. In my estimation, it is superior to a traditional neck pillow, but has its share of advantages and disadvantages. I'd recommend it if you prefer strong directional support to softer universal neck support provided by a traditional neck pillow, and if you like the comfort of having a pillow 'hugging' you as you sleep. This pillow also works really well in the car, and if you've got kids who have a hard time sleeping on road trips, these are probably a must buy.
I'd like to thank TravelRest for their customer service. This company went out of their way to assist with my pillow by providing additional information on how to use the pillow effectively. They have produced a short video on using the pillow that I have put a link to in the comments section. It is pretty PR-ish, but does show the various ways to use the pillow. I'd also like to say that TravelRest in no way bartered for any changes to this review. They were straight shooters who wanted to make sure I understood their product and was using it properly. I've got no problem recommending them to anyone. It's actually pretty amazing when a company goes above and beyond to provide solid customer service as they did for me.
Customer service, however, was excellent. The manufacturer has been very helpful - and has offered to send me a replacement cap, even though the design has been updated since I bought my pillow. It was a pleasant surprise to actually receive a response to my email on a weekend - followed by confirmation a few days later that the cap will be sent. Will wait for the cap and check if it actually fits, then I will update the review.

This is pricey, but for me has been worth it.
It's a real shame as the company seems nice and they are clearly proud of their innovative design. However it just doesn't work, for the following key reasons;
1) it offers no neck support (the woman in the advertising picture should have her chin drooping on her chest)
2) you can jam it in place using the string as suggested but it will inevitably come un-jammed as you move trying to get comfortable (even with your arm in place as per the instructions)
3) it's just too bulky when in use and a faff to move between shoulders mid-snooze.
I dearly hope I am missing something and will try it on another flight in a few days. However I've used it on both buses and planes and so far it has been terrible. I have no idea how it justifies its cost (although not that expensive in the grand scheme of things) and how everyone else gets on with it.
My advice would be to think about the most uncomfortable thing about trying to sleep whilst flying. For me this is the inevitable head droop as the neck muscles just want to relax but can't, and the resulting stiff neck and no sleep. Then find a pillow that solves that problem.
I for one will be scouring duty free before my flight to NZ for a pillow that works, no matter the cost.
