The majority of U-shaped travel pillows don’t provide adequate neck support while traveling, often leading to an uncomfortable, sore neck. However, the Travelrest Nest has recently emerged as a stand-out option for its unique shape and sculpted design. The Travelrest Nest is a 360-degree travel pillow that features a flat rear, helping to keep your neck upright against the seat back without forcing you into a slouch. The high sides of the Nest hold the head without much wiggle room, providing a comfortable and secure fit. The microfiber cover is soft and the memory foam is firm with just enough give for comfort, making it easy to fold and compress into a small space. The Nest comes with a stuff sack and a hook-and-loop fastener to compress it further. However, it lacks an attachment point to clip it onto a backpack or luggage. The Travelrest Nest is priced at $40 and comes in blue and gray, with a removable cover that can be washed after a trip. The only downside is that it tends to go in and out of stock with regularity, so it’s best to purchase it as soon as possible before your trip.
