Travel Rest Pillow

If you have ever tried to rest comfortably or actually SLEEP on an airplane or in a car, you probably already know that a good travel pillow is the only thing that makes it possible to do it sitting upright. A horseshoe-shaped pillow will hold your head in place and prevent the dreaded neck snap...but it doesn't do much to support your body. It's hard to sleep on a plane or in a car unless you can lean against something comfortably without falling over.

Kids can usually sleep in a carseat with side supports, but if they're in a booster seat or a regular seat, they slump. They do the head bob. Or else they can't fall asleep at all, because they can't relax.

Fear not, the TravelRest Pillow solves all these problems! It supports both head *and* body for comfortable rest in all sorts of travel situations.

One of the very few downsides of the CARES Fly Safe Air harness is that, while it beautifully replaces a carseat in every other way, it doesn't offer the head and body support of a carseat for a sleeping child. But if you use it in combination with the TravelRest Pillow, your child stays safe, supported, and sleeping. And you don't have to lug a carseat.

Loop the tether cord over your car's headrest and attach the SnapFlap to the lap belt. (Your kids will sleep longer too!)
WARNING: Never place cord around neck of any person. Do not use as a flotation device. Do not leave small children unattended.

Flight delayed? No place to stretch out and get comfortable? Inflate firmly and attach the tether cord to the SnapFlap at the bottom of TravelRest, slip the cord over your head and shoulder like a messenger bag and you're resting freestyle!

How do I wash my TravelRest?

A. Some take it in the shower...go ahead, no one will know. The more conventional approach would be to use mild soap and warm water, then air dry.

Which way is best to use my TravelRest?

A. Tether it. Wear It. Cuddle it. Drape it across your chest. Tuck it between you and the armrest. You have options. Tethering to your seat back offers the most support for long journeys, red eye flights, hangovers, etc. Wearing it "Freestyle" holds your pillow up close were you need it with added mobility. Freestyle also gives you support to snooze in any low back chair. It's great for those long waits at the airport or train terminal, doctor's office or a traffic school lecture. Or just cuddle it with your arms. Not only is this comfortable, but it creates a privacy barrier that kills unwanted conversations with the person next to you.

Is TravelRest easy to inflate?

A. Our pillow is big on comfort but easy on your lungs. With just a few puffs your TravelRest comes to life thanks to our unique, tapered design that only puts air where you need it for support minimizing your huffing and puffing.

Does TravelRest come in other sizes?

A. Our patented shape fits everyone, big or small, young or not-so young. The size and shape are the secret to the most comfortable sleep experience you can get while sitting. Its length insures effective tether placement so it won't interfere with the tray table on the back of your seat. The ergonomic shape cradles your head and neck. The body of the pillow molds to your body giving you something snugly to cuddle. The whole pillow is soft and cushy and provides a great sleeping surface for a person of any height.

Do I need to inflate the pillow all the way?

A. No. Like your pillow at home that holds its shape but is soft and compliant, you need only to inflate to your desired level of firmness. The firmness will change due to cabin pressure and altitude. It's like your own science experiment.

What are the Dimensions of the TravelRest when rolled up?

A. 2 inches in diameter and 9 inches long. Like a pair of gloves, or a bean and cheese burrito.

Why do you call it the "Ultimate Travel Pillow"?

A. No other pillow addresses the "slump factor" better than ours. Sure, you may hold your head upright with some of our competitor's pillows, but only TravelRest supports your whole upper body while you sleep. Now you don't have to scramble to get the window seat to keep you from slumping. With a TravelRest pillow you'll get that "lean against" kind of support in any seat. Now you can rest with the confidence you're not slumping over into the stranger sitting next to you.
