Travel Pillow a Game changer for sleep on long-haul travel

Long commutes and good sleep don’t usually come hand in hand, but Pockindo has arrived to help.

Traveller report the exciting release of a brand new travel pillow from Pockindo, designed to help sleep on long haul travel. It may just be the answer to our dreadful sleepless flights, with their pillow design built on their belief that “sleeping well is a matter of good position”. Its tube-like design provides optimal comfort, offering an inflatable lightweight pillow that makes a good nights rest easy by leaning into the pillow with your head. Personalise your pillow with the range of colours to choose from.

According to Traveller, expert physicians and osteopaths helped develop the pillow design, which focuses on providing a soft forward resting for your head, rather than positioning yourself upright.

Pockindo has not been without concerns however, as Traveller report they are worried the pillow may cause strain for the neck and shoulder muscles due to the forward pull. We don’t know until we try, and I think we are all keen to try a different way of getting a good sleep while travelling, so lets give it a go.

The Pockindo is available for $133, but get it in advanced of a big trip, because it can take up to 2 months shipping to arrive.
