This Travel Pillow May Have Finally Solved the Biggest Issue With Napping on Planes
It might annoy your neighbor, but it's probably worth it.
Long flights are a real pain in the neck.
No, really. You try to settle in for a nice, long nap, but you can’t seem to get yourself into a comfortable position. You try to rest your head on your hand, lean back, lean forward, lean from side to side – and preferably not on other people.
Neck pillows sometimes help, but finding the right one can be tricky, and often times they aren’t really meant to be used in the optimal sleeping position that helps you feel rested.
The JetComfy pillow might finally be different. It’s like a tiny cloud attached to a selfie stick – but don’t let that discourage you.
JetComfy is more like a cushioned platform for your tired little head. It’s made out of memory foam (just like your fancy mattress) and has an extension rod that attaches to your armrest.
With the extendable base, the JetComfy can be raised as high or as low as you like, so you can stay ergonomically comfortable for the flight.
“Our goal was to mimic the natural resting pose of resting your head on your hand,” co-founder David Brecht told HuffPost.
Hopefully your neighbor won’t mind you taking up part of the armrest for your pillow, but it beats you resting your head on their shoulder.
“JetComfy takes up only a very tiny portion of the armrest, leaving it available for your neighbor to still use. If you didn’t have a JetComfy, you would be resting your arm on the shared armrest which takes up much more space,” Brecht claims.
While some customers complained the pillow was a bit bulky for their taste, others have raved that it’s amazing on long flights, and it is compliant with TSA guidelines. When you’re not using the pillow, the extension rod folds up neatly and tucks away beneath the base.
The best part is, your JetComfy won’t complain if you drool on it. Probably.
