A couple of days late but no worse for wear, SkyMall Tuesday (yes, I know it’s Thursday) is back with another installment. My mind, as it often does, wandered toward travel again this week. There is no lack of choice when it comes to travel pillows, and SkyMall offers a bevy of options. These days, however, no one wants a regular old travel pillow. It’s almost 2013.

If you want to be hip, comfortable, and able to carry on all of your luggage, you need to consolidate your life and optimize your travel gear. That’s why this week’s featured product is perfect for the modern traveler. It combines a pillow and a hooded sweatshirt into a whole new product that’s greater than the sum of its parts. Behold, the Grand Trunk Blackout Pillow.
After last week’s SkyMall Tuesday featured such a practical piece of travel gear, I thought I’d keep the focus on products that help us all sleep comfortably when we’re flying. Finding the perfect travel pillow is harder than finding the right person (you know what I saying, ladies?). Most support the neck while ignoring the chin. Others slide out of place. Few come in zebra print. It’s a laundry list of disasters (which reminds me that many are not machine washable). It’s enough to make you give up on trying to sleep on planes and just mash the buttons on your in-flight entertainment monitor (don’t do that unless you want the person sitting in front of you to aggressively recline his seat into your knees). Thankfully, our friends at SkyMall know just what we need when it comes to travel pillows. The next time you want to nap at 35,000 feet, be sure to bring along your Ultimate Neck Pillow & Blanket (or, as the creators call it, the Comfy Commuter). Read more
