A great travel pillow which makes those long haul journeys a bit more bearable

No, it’s not a stuffed elephant – it is actually a ‘revolutionary travel pillow’.   Odd though the design and shape is, the J Pillow was actually awarded British invention of the year in 2013, so we thought it was worth a try and we’re glad we did.

The first thing I noticed was that it is incredibly soft.  It’s well stuffed with a polyester filling, ensuring it’s plump and fits well around your neck and chin.  I found there was limited to no slack in it which made it supportive.

What sets this apart from your run of the mill travel pillow is the chin support.  It’s a welcome feature as often when I’m travelling I manage to wake myself up by nodding forwards or with my head going backwards and snoring (we’ve all been there).  The J pillow comes with a handy velcro clip that you can use to attach the pillow to your hand luggage or possibly a seat belt if you are travelling in the car.

If you would prefer to pack the pillow up in a bag, it folds to the size of a small football.  It’s plump so very quickly bounces back to its original shape.  To keep it folded for more than a few seconds you may want to invest in a strap to wrap around it.

If you’re travelling on a budget and you’re massively short of hand-luggage space, it might not be the best travel pillow choice.  At £19.95, it’s expensive.  But if you travel a lot, long-haul flights or for business and need to sleep,  I would highly recommend it.  Overall, this is a great travel pillow – no more leaning, snoring or drooling on your neighbouring passenger’s shoulder!
