With literally hundreds of travel pillows on the market, do we really need another one? What is so special about the Total Pillow that makes it worth spending millions on infomercial advertising? Is it really the best travel neck pillow available?
Since they’ve been flying off our shelves the past few months & I was about to embark on a 3-hour flight, I thought this would be a pretty good opportunity to give one a try and find out. I usually let members of our staff do the testing but since I’m about as picky as anyone when it comes to my pillows, why not let myself be the guinea pig this time?
As far as travel pillows go, the Total Pillow pretty much rocks. This thing is so versatile that if you can’t find a position that suits you, I’ll relinquish my title as “the most picky pillow person on earth.”
If I had to choose between my wife & my Total Pillow as travel companions, I’ll take the pillow. It understands my feelings and doesn’t talk as much. It will twist & change into about 5 different shapes – and remarkably retains its shape.
Seriously though, I’m a side sleeper so I’ve never really found a travel pillow that accommodates me. Most of them cradle the neck, pretty much forcing you into a “look straight ahead” position. And most that I have found to be halfway comfortable are too bulky to lug around the airport. This pillow, however, slid perfectly onto my carry-on bag and cradled me just right during flight.
But, if you do prefer the typical “straight ahead” travel pillow position, just fold the Total Pillow in half and you’ll find it to be the soft & comfy, giving just the right amount of neck support.
If you’re one that has trouble with your back on car rides, twist the Total Pillow into the “knot” position & you’ll have a perfect lower back cushion for the trip. Or for a little extra support in your chair at the office, just keep it in the regular position & place it under your bottom.
