Next-Gen Travel Pillows Review: Trtl Pillow, JetComfy, and NapAnywhere

Next-Gen Travel Pillows Review

U-shaped travel pillows have been the industry standard for decades, but that doesn’t mean they work for everyone. Inspired by sleepless flights, companies around the world are coming up with new and inventive ways to facilitate comfortable sleep in uncomfortable travel situations.

Check out our test run of three pillows that are taking a unique approach to sleep on the go:

Trtl Pillow: This lightweight and easy to pack scarf has a plastic support that supports your head in a side or front sleep sitting position. ($30) Shop>

JetComfy: This ultra-padded pillow comes with its own monopod that can be attached to an armrest and adjusted to different heights and angles. ($35) Shop>

NapAnywhere: This bendable disk creates one nook for your head and one for your shoulder, and is then stabilized with a Velcro strap that’s worn like a seatbelt. ($59) Shop>
