Before you start traveling, you get your passport ready, choose the right suitcase, then of course, you buy your travel pillow.
The travel pillow industry (if you can call it an industry) is one made up of a lot of varying and unique designs, but the Aeris travel pillow opts for the more traditional “U” shaped design.
This memory foam pillow is very similar in design to the Comfort Master pillow, except the Aeris has a draw cord for keeping the pillow in place and comes with a carrying pouch. I am reviewing the pillow in purple although it also comes in blue and olive green.
- Memory foam
- Soft and comfy
- Removable washable cover
- Includes nylon carrying pouch
The Aeris has a textured outer cover that reminds me of that of the Tempur-Pedic pillow and can be zipped off and machine washed. This is helpful if your pillow gets dirty while traveling or if you end up drooling over the pillow.
The Aeris travel pillow also comes with a nylon carrying pouch which has a Velcro compression strap for keeping the pillow compact, and to easily strap onto your luggage. One feature that I’m a big fan of is the drawstring which helps to keep the pillow in place when you’re sleeping and also helps the pillow to support the head. The pillow also comes with a sleep mask and ear plugs.
Being heavier than normal foam is a known problem for memory foam and causes this pillow to be on the heavier side.
This pillow has a generally average “U” shaped design, which is not as supportive as some other designs like that of the J-Pillow or the Travelrest pillow. The “U” design has its limitations, like how it can’t support the chin, however the design of the Aeris pillow is about as refined as the “U” design can get, so the only improvements for this pillow would involve a total overhaul in the design and shape of the pillow.
The Aeris travel pillow is as good as it gets for “U” shaped pillows, and if you’re looking for a normal horseshoe type neck pillow, the Aeris should be your pick. I’d actually rate it higher than its most similar competitor, the Comfort Master, because the Aeris offers more in terms of portability and features.
