In the travel accessories world, the Trtl pillow is something of a phenomenon. Its unconventional approach to supporting the head and neck changed what a neck pillow could look like — and how well it could work — thus converting travel pillow non-believers everywhere. (It’s safe to say our editors are obsessed.) 

Now, the folks over at Scotland-based Trtl have finally released the 2.0 version: the Trtl Pillow Plus. After raising $450,000 in via crowdfunding campaigns on both Kickstarter and Indiegogo, the new pillow is finally available to shop on Amazon — where it quickly skyrocketed to the No. 1 New Release spot, by the way.

Five years of sleep ergonomics research went into the new version, and two major consumer wishes have been granted: lighter fabric and adjustable height. The new material is far more breathable than the Trtl pillow 1.0's fleece. It's still lined with super-soft micro-fleece, but there's now a mesh panel running along the center that will keep you from overheating. It's also still machine washable for convenience.

More notably than the fabric change, though, is the new adjustable height feature for the internal support 'V'. Unwrapped, there are two auto-locking toggles that you can twist toward the right to expand or toward the left to shorten. And they operate independently of one another, so your Trtl can be shorter near your face and taller behind your shoulder, for example. Actually, it has 80 possible configurations — 80!

We tested one and were surprised to learn that once you get your height settings just-right Goldilocks style, you won't even need to wrap the fabric around your neck. The pillow will snuggle itself in between your head and shoulder and just do its thing on its own.  

The price point for the Plus has gone up alongside the quality, now retailing at $60. (The original generally retails for $30 on Amazon). If you hurry, though, you can score one with a 20 percent off discount by using code 20TRTLPLUS at checkout.
