Why Pillowpackers Doesn't Sell Inflatable Neck Pillows

If you’re a fan of Pillowpacker pillows, you’ve probably noticed that there’s no inflatable travel pillow specially designed for neck support as a part of our collection.

Ever wonder why not?

Although travel pillows are our specialty, how come we never designed and produced that well-known (but hardly comfortable) U-shaped neck pillow?

Wherever you go – airport, bus station, or train station – small, inflatable neck pillows are all around us. Many people use them during travels.

But, who uses these pillows aside from travel? And how often do people travel?

The Problem With Inflatable Neck Pillows

Although many travellers own an inflatable neck pillow, most don’t think about their efficiency or how much use they get out of such neck pillows.

U-shaped neck pillows, although also inflatable and thus convenient to have during a flight, don’t serve any purpose outside those several hours of being in an uncomfortable seat on a plane, bus or train.

People often throw these neck pillows closet and struggle to find them when it’s time to travel. Then, they again forget where they put it and buy a new one.

As a result, some people have multiple neck pillows piling up in their homes - that's a waste of money and space.

There has to be a better way.

Why do we keep spending money on these U-shaped pillows that will serve their purpose for a few hours, only to be forgotten about again?

Besides, U-shaped neck pillows have been a controversial topic ever since their invention, as they don’t provide the necessary support for the head and the neck. So, their use can even lead to neck pain or headaches, which people often experience.


Ultimately, neck pillows (ugh) don’t even do what they were produced to do.

So... is there a better solution?
