Behind the Fluff in Our Travel Pillows

Many people have asked us to tell the story behind the fluff in our pillows.

After proudly telling our company’s story to friends and new customers, we realized that maybe more people are wondering about the same thing. 

Whether you're an avid traveller, a once-a-year travel hobbyist or even an armchair traveller, we'd love to tell you more of the story of the Pillowpacker inflatable travel pillow.

The Down in Our Travel Pillows

Have you ever taken a closer look at your travel pillows?

What are they made of? Are they ethically sourced?

Even though there has been significant improvement and increased selection of ethically sourced products, most people are only paying attention to clothes, shoes, and jewellery.

But what about your inflatable travel pillows?

Don’t worry; we've got you.

Our pillows are made out of premium, high-quality down that is ethically sourced and comes from local communities from Alberta and Quebec.

Supplied by Feather Industries, our down is guaranteed to be ethically sourced – farmers are paid well, consistently, while birds are treated ethically during their rearing and are not force-fed.

In our online store, we have a selection of travel pillows filled with various down you can choose from and pick your favourite.

1. Goose Down Travel Pillows

Goose down is the premium down we offer in our inflatable travel pillows.

Made out of delicate and incredibly soft goose down, this travel pillow is guaranteed to give you the comfort you’ve been looking for.

Because of their lightweight structure and compatible design, goose down pillows are the perfect pick for anyone spending a lot of time travelling.

With these goose down travel pillows, you’ll feel the luxury of the most expensive pillows, but for a fairer price.

Because of their 700+ loft, goose down travel pillows are the perfect mix of lightweight and substantial insulation that provides the sleeper with the warmest dreams.

Our premium goose down comes from Hutterite communities located in Alberta.

2. Duck Down Travel Pillows

The other pure down we have in our travel pillow selection is duck down.

Even though it’s slightly cheaper than the goose down, that doesn’t mean it lacks quality. In fact, duck down makes a great travel pillow.

Because duck down pillows feature 600 loft clusters, they happen to be a better fit for those trying to find a cooler travel pillow.

Our duck down comes from Brome Lake, Quebec.

3. White Down Blend

This inflatable travel pillow features a blend of premium goose down and excellent duck down.

The blend travel pillow is the perfect choice for anyone looking for an inflatable travel pillow and a midpoint in insulation, loft, and price.

Our white down blend also comes from Brome Lake, Quebec.


To wrap it up, our travel pillows are a great mix of quality, fair price and utility.

With their simple design and practical dimensions, these inflatable travel pillows offer ultimate comfort in any sleeping position while travelling.

With our natural and ethically sourced down, you can take the luxury of your regular pillow anywhere.

Jet Lag on Long Haul Flights
Vital Considerations For Your Long Haul Flight Comfort

November 16, 2022

Insuremytrip™, a company specializing in customized travel insurance, has some very helpful travel advice and tips for long haul flights. Long haul flights, more than 2200 nautical miles (4100km) can be killers to your travel comfort.

Probably the most vital of these travel tips is to pack a travel pillow, sleep mask and earplugs. Sleep masks and ear plugs are pretty generic but there are hundreds of varieties of travel pillows. If you leave yourself at the mercy of the complementary “pillows” provided free by the airline you have just inflicted a major injury on yourself, akin to shooting yourself in the foot but without the humour.
