Our down travel pillows come with your choice from three types of down. Hutterite goose down travel pillows provide the most luxurious, softest sleeping experience you can get (even when you aren’t travelling). Lake Brome duck down travel pillows are a little less fluffy while still providing a great, comfortable sleeping experience. Our white down travel pillow is a blend of goose and duck downs for that nice, in-between sleep experience. No matter which you choose, you’ll end up with the best travel pillow on the market.
Our microfibre travel pillows are a down alternative. They don’t provide quite the soft, lofty quality of down, but they’re hypoallergenic and fit for more rugged travel in wet or humid areas, like a kayaking or canoe trip.
Our synthetic microfibre down alternative of choice is the Eco2 Suprelle Micro, created and manufactured in Germany. Ultrafine siliconized Dacron polyester fibres are soft and light. The siliconizing process allows the synthetic microfibres to easily slide past one another, simulating the springy yield of genuine down.
German design and manufacture also means compliance with the European Union’s strict environment regulations, meaning our microfibre pillows are nearly as eco-friendly as our ethically-sourced down.
We’ve designed our pillows to provide a full-size sleeping experience is a portable-sized package. Just half the size of a bedroom pillow, our inflatable travel pillows perform just as well.
The secret’s inside our pillows: A mouth-inflated polyurethane insert gives your travel pillows exactly the size and firmness you’re used to. When you put that insert into our down and microfibre travel pillow outer layers, you’ll never notice it’s there.
When you’re ready to pack back up, just deflate the insert and the pillow rolls up and is ready to pack.
Years of design, dedication, and refinement mean the perfect balance of size, portability, and feel.
Down is a kind of feather, but it’s not what most people think of when they picture feathers.
Down is the fluffy undercoating of waterfowl, like ducks and geese, that lets them stay warm in water, especially in the chilly Canadian climate. It’s not like the tough exterior feathers.
Those tough exterior feathers have spines that can poke you as sleep, and are much harder than down. We only produce down pillows, for the ultimate travel sleeping experience.
Down is breathable, light, and soft. It naturally wicks away moisture and holds heat. It does this with tiny, interlocking filaments that trap air. This is what gives down its “loft”.
Down isn’t like cotton. If you’ve ever scrunched up a cotton pillow, you know it tends to ball up and get lumpy. Down, even when compressed, will bounce back to its original shape over and over, adapt to the contours of your body, and stay lofty.
Goose down and duck down are different. Goose down is longer and lighter, providing more fluffiness and loftiness than duck down. Duck down’s a good choice for economy and compromise.
Canada is home to some of the finest down in the world. Our chilly climate means the waterfowl that live here have fluffiest, warmest down. That means our down travel pillows also have the fluffiest, warmest down.
The down used in making Pillowpacker® pillows is among the best you can get, and we are very happy to offer it in our products. Feather Industries, the largest processor of feathers and down in Canada, supplies all our down. Feather Industries meets and exceeds all Canadian and International down processing standards.
When you buy travel pillows from Pillowpacker®, you’re buying Earth-friendly products.
Our down comes from Feather Industries. Feather Industries sources goose down from Hutterite communities in Alberta, and our duck down and white down blend comes from Lake Brome in Quebec.
No bird that provides our down is ever raised specifically to harvest down, they’re never live-plucked, and they’re never force-fed.
Feather Industries uses an eco-friendly process to wash and clean the down, with 100% biodegradable agents.
Down has a much lower carbon footprint and much less waste than synthetic processes.
The Pillowpacker® pillow is easy to set up and adjust. Whether you have a down travel pillow or a microfibre travel pillow, the set-up is the same.
Access your inflatable insert through the zippered pouch in the outer pillow—there’s no need to take it out.
Find the valve on the inflatable insert. Turn it counter-clockwise to make sure it’s fully open. Blow into it until the inflatable insert has the firmness and yield you prefer. Then twist the valve clockwise again to seal it.
We recommend testing out different levels of inflation at home, to find the one that’s best for you.
When you’re ready to pack your pillow, just access the insert through the zipper (again, no need to take it out). Then open the valve by turning it counter-clockwise again, and gently apply pressure to deflate the insert. Roll the travel pillows up, and tuck them into the Nylon stuff sack.

Both our down travel pillows and microfibre travel pillows are resilient and can last for years of travelling with proper care.
For our down travel pillows especially, make sure to air them out in a dry place (no humidity). Fluff them occasionally and launder as necessary.
Always use your Pillowpacker® inflatable travel pillow with a pillowcase. We recommend you purchase some extra pillow cases from us, so you can swap them out regularly, as well as use one as a general pillow protector and another as your pillowcase from when you sleep. This will help protect your travel pillow from oils.
Wash your outer down travel pillow in warm water on the gentlest cycle using a mild detergent. Remember, with down, always double the rinse cycle to remove residue. Spin cycle as normal to remove as much moisture as possible. When drying, use warm heat or low heat and let the cycle dry for longer than you normally would. Make sure your outer down pillow is completely dry. High heat during the wash or dry cycle can cause the pillow fabric to shrink.
Wash your outer microfibre pillow the way you would normally wash and dry other synthetics. Don’t use too much heat to prevent damage to the microfibres.
You can wipe the polyurethane inflatable travel pillow insert with warm water and mild soap as needed.
We’ve had an incredible amount of customer feedback from patients with sore necks and backs who’ve benefited from our down travel pillows. You can even see some for yourself here! We’re always happy when people tell us that Pillowpacker® is the travel pillow for neck pain. Maybe it’s our contoured insert or the warm, embracing comfort of quality down. Maybe it’s both. What we do know is that travelling shouldn’t be a pain in the neck!
Remember: Pillowpacker® isn’t a medical product, so be sure to talk to your doctor before travelling.
