Handycosy – The Best New Travel Pillow!
I have a real problem with travel pillows, they always seem like such a good idea to me, I hate that neck pain after falling asleep in a train, plane or automobile! I’ve impulse bought so many at airports all over the world. I’ve bought “Premium” inflatable travel pillows “Premium” memory foam pillows, “Premium” bean bag pillows…I’ve bought them online too…and every time I’m disappointed. Too small, too big, rough edges, too much faffing around, look stupid!
BUT…I was recently approached by Lydia the creator of a new travel pillow….The Handycosy travel pillow! I was really impressed…SO impressed…and everyone I’ve showed it to has been as well. Lydia…I think you may of hit the jackpot here! Check out the website here.
Firstly it packs away really conveniently into a drawstring bag and takes up a small space so that it’s not inconvenient packing into hand luggage, when so often travelling with hand luggage only these days this is hugely important. The second thing I and everyone I’ve shown it to has commented on is how snuggley and soft the material is. As soon as you wrap it round your neck it feels so amazing I can’t help but break into a smile. Then thirdly…it actually does the job! The memory foam filling, once unpacked, is the perfect firmness to be comfortable but still provide support…no more neck ache! We tested it out recently on our 3 and a half hour car journey down to the south coast of the UK and back and it really does work and is incredibly comfortable, just what I’ve been looking for.
You can tell that so much thought has gone into the design of the Handycosy and it has paid off. It can pack down to 30% of its original size and only weighs 200 grams! There are no rough edges and as the back of the pillow is flat it doesn’t push your neck forward like some do.
It has all the convenience of an inflatable travel pillow, with all of the comfort of memory foam pillow, perfectly combined!
Handycosy is going to be launching on Kickstarter soon you can sign up for updates on their website and also let Lydia talk you through the design here.
