It’s medically engineered to support your C1 – C7 vertebrae, trains your body to rest upright correctly, is 80% smaller than traditional travel pillows, and has a 30-day return policy in case you try it and realize it’s not for you.

Travel + Leisure recently wrote a feature about the Travel Pillow: “There are plenty of uniquely-shaped travel pillows on the market for every type of seat sleeper, but this ergonomic option from Bullbird has caught our attention because of its compact size and high tech design.”
