Product Review: Magniflex Sushi Travel Pillow


What Is it: The Magniflex Sushi Compact Travel Pillow Kit, a travel-sized memory foam pillow and unique portable pillowcase.

Price and Where to Buy: $119 on Amazon.


  • Made by Magniflex, a luxury Italian mattress producer
  • Pillow is made out of the same material as memory foam mattresses
  • Pillowcase can be used on any pillow
  • Sushi pillowcase keeps the pillow covered and in a sanitary environment during traveling
  • Comes with a carrying case
  • Extremely comfortable


  • Expensive
  • Bulky and heavy compared to most other travel pillows

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 7/10. If you are picky about your pillow and prefer a memory foam one while traveling, the Sushi Pillow is great for you.
  • Portability: 5/10. The pillow is about 4.5 inches thick, 26.7 inches wide, and 16 inches long, but can be rolled up.
  • Value: 7/10. $119 is very expensive for a travel pillow, but a decent price for a good memory foam pillow and travel case.
  • Cool Factor: 8/10. It’s cool to be comfortable and well-rested, plus unfolding the Sushi Pillow is less embarrassing than inflating a blow-up travel pillow on a plane.

Final Verdict: The Sushi Pillow is probably one of the most comfortable pillows I’ve ever laid my head on—the memory foam is amazing. On the other hand, it does take up a fair amount of space in your carry-on. If you have space and like to BYOP (bring your own pillow), the Sushi Pillow is a worthy splurge.
