Traveling is one of the most rewarding experiences you can invest in. Flying, however, frequently isn't. Unless you have the miles, points, or money for business class, you’re likely to be stuffed inside a large glorified tuna can filled with sniffling strangers, screaming babies, and stale air.
Luckily, there is one surefire way to mitigate the hellishness of a long-haul flight in economy: by sleeping through it. However, unless you’re dosing yourself with Ambien, getting comfortable enough to conk out for a few hours is much easier said than done. A humble travel pillow, though, can make all the difference.
They come in all different shapes and sizes, with fancy neck supports, weird contours, and run the gamut in price. The key is to find one that suits your particular sleeping style. So, rather than settle for whatever overpriced off-brand setup you find in the airport Hudson News, we’ve pulled together a selection of the best travel pillows for every kind of flyer.
