I use inflatable neck pillows on planes, long bus rides, and trains because the angle of the seats at the neck doesn’t match my neck at all – and I’m betting it doesn’t match your neck, either. If you want to snooze, you need something soft to cushion the angle of your neck up against the often-uncomfortable neck rest. Over the years I’ve used many different neck pillows. Here’s a video review of my most recent inflatable neck pillow – one that I do NOT recommend you buy.
My best neck pillow tips:
- Use an inflatable neck pillow rather than one that doesn’t inflate. It’s smaller to carry and stick into your carry on.
- Buy a neck pillow that has a removable case – usually they zip off. Your pillow’s going to get nasty, you want to be able to wash the cover and start over.
- The best neck pillows fold up into themselves (in one corner) or into a small bag. This helps protect the inflatable bladder.

As you heard in the video, I don’t recommend the Luxe Pillow by Eagle Creek. So what do I like? Here’s the neck pillow I recommend, available through Amazon (and I’m sure available elsewhere, too). I like this neck pillow because the back is a bit different (it comes up under the neck on both sides for more stability and comfort). It’s inflatable, and the cover comes off for washing. Here’s a picture of it for you. It’s got its own little case, easy to slip into your backpack, purse, or pocket.
