As a frequent flyer who never, ever sleeps on long haul flights I am constantly on the lookout for something that may potentially ease the torture that defines long distance air travel.
When it comes to travel pillows I have just about tried them all – bean filled, air filled, velvety covers, ‘luxury’ styles etc. And I can say with absolute gusto that…they are all rubbish!
But sometimes it is awesome to be proven wrong!
Who better to appreciate the sleep deprived discomfort that a long haul traveller endures than a flight attendant?
Former Virgin Atlantic flight attendant, now British Invention of the Year winner, Gemma Jensen, is now every frequent flyer’s best friend with the release of her amazing J-Pillow!
The design of the J-Pillow is sheer genius for the simple fact that it supports your neck, it supports your head and it supports your chin.
Your chin!! Genius.
Meaning that sleeping upright finally becomes something within the realms of possibility during long haul travel.
That alone gets a massive high-five from me!
OK I admit that aesthetically it is a little usual, but once you’ve seen how well it works…you get past that – trust me!
The traditional U-shape design of travel pillows does zilch for comfort, posture or that god-awful falling feeling as you start to nod off and your head inevitably jolts forward.
The clever design of the J-Pillow counteracts all of this. And it’s so cute and snuggly too.
The pillow is easy to carry with a snap loop at the top which can be attached to luggage.
It’s squishy, so it can fit well inside your luggage when you are not flying.
The J-Pillow retails at $35 (AUD) including free worldwide delivery and is available from the J-Pillow Website
P.S. Although I received a complimentary J-Pillow from Gemma to review, I will never review any product on Quiet Wanderings that I don’t fully endorse and use myself. And I love this!
Guess what all my travel friends are getting for Christmas this year? 😉
