No matter if you’re in an aisle, window, or middle seat—the unique Candy Cane Travel Pillow actually works.

Candy Cane Travel Pillow Review:

Price and Where to Buy: The Candy Cane Travel Pillow is available on Amazon for $14.95.

How The Candy Cane Travel Pillow Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. The Candy Cane’s unique design will actually support your head in a variety of upright positions. Use it to lean against a window, to sleep on your side, or just to support your chin. The inflatable pillow is made from a super soft fabric that feels nice against your skin. You can position this pillow in a variety of different ways and then secure it tightly into place with the elastic strap.
  • Durability: 7/10. The pillow’s fabric is soft but sturdy, and the pillow itself is well made.
  • Portability: 10/10. The deflated Candy Cane packs down into an included carrying pouch that’s about the size of an apple. It’s very lightweight and easy to pack.

Final Verdict: This travel pillow is one of the few I’ve found that actually prevents my head from falling down while sleeping. And, it’s extremely affordable and packable.
