Product Review: Comfy Commuter Travel Pillow

SmarterTravel

What Is it: The Comfy Commuter Travel and Neck Pillow.

Price and Where to Buy: At the time of publication, the pillow was on sale on Amazon and The Comfy Commuter website for $39.99.

Pros:

  • Offers a full money back guarantee (if purchased through the Comfy Commuter website) if returned within 30 days of delivery
  • Flat back doesn’t push your head forward
  • Slip resistant fabric on the back helps keep the pillow in place
  • Optional chin strap can be used for a snug fit and for additional neck support
  • Side pocket for storage
  • Washable
  • Made in the USA
  • Compacts down into an attached carry bag

Cons:

  • Although there are included straps to help compress the pillow, I still found it bulky to carry on a plane
  • I felt that the using the chin strap made me feel like I was being strangled by the pillow, and that without it, my head would fall forward while I slept

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 6/10. If the pillow works for you, it’s definitely useful! If it doesn’t, than it’s just another bulky item to haul around while you travel
  • Value: 5/10. The price point is still very high for a travel pillow, even on sale
  • Durability: 10/10. The outer cover is made of 85 percent polyester and 15 percent cotton, and the inner cover is 100 percent polyester. The pillow is very durable and will last a while, since it is washable
  • Cool Factor: 8/10. This pillow isn’t any dorkier than any other travel pillow.

Final Verdict: This pillow didn’t work for me, but hundreds of happy reviewers on Amazon love it. Since there’s a money-back guarantee, you might as well try it for yourself if you’re in the market for a new travel pillow.
