    Can anyone recommend a neck pillow? 13th Apr 18 at 10:36 AM
    So I'm finding myself on a lot more long-haul flights these days and in need of a decent neck pillow at a fair price. There are tonnes on ebay but obviously I can't try them out in advance. Plenty in airports too but ranging all the way up to about EUR50. I don't mind paying that much if it's genuinely worth it; I should be getting a lot of use and taking care of it.

    So can anyone recommend any good pillows (ideally for MSE prices)?

    Having some sort of hook/clip so I can carry it without it going in a bag would be very useful but not critical.

    I have one of these:

    I love it so much that I use it every day. I have an old neck injury and find it gives me plenty of support.

    I've never even seen one that shape before but it does look a lot more supportive, Thanks!

    I'd be concerned about the one from Amazon slipping - I like one that has a fastening at the front so it keeps it in place.

    If you want to try one out and have a TKMaxx near you, they usually have some stock.

    I've never had it slip. It hooks around and underneath you neck.

    My other half can't get to grips with my pillow but he can sleep on a plane without one. It's all down to individual preference.

    Are there any decent blow up ones? As I also need a decent neck pillow, but as I often travel with hand luggage only I'm concerned about space.

    I can second that. I've tried so many travel pillows and this for me has been the best - even in an aisle seat with nothing to lean against.

    The J Pillow squashes up very small and has a tab to hang it on the handle of your bag if you really haven't room inside.

    Another vote for the J pillow. Fabulous invention. I keep mine in the car for use when I am a passenger.
