This is the best travel pillow for those who love the window seat when flying

Look, flying sucks. Unless, of course, you’re flying first class with the private suites and full beds. But for the rest of us normies in the world, the only thing that can make it remotely better is getting to choose between a window seat or an aisle seat.

If you’re a window seat purist, then you definitely prioritize sleep and comfort on your flight above everything else. Still, it’s cramped — and that means so will your neck. Well, friends, the internet has discovered a travel pillow that’s actually comfortable. Trust me; it’s not just a placebo effect like with other travel pillows.

The J-Pillow Travel Pillow is on the pricier side of travel pillows at $43, but it’s worth it. Also, it won’t cost a first-class ticket, but you can feel like more of a first-class princess than you do right now.

The J-Pillow even won a British Invention of The Year award.

The J-Pillow Travel Pillow supports your neck and keeps your head elevated in the ideal position for an in-flight restful sleep. Unlike other standard U-shaped travel pillows that offer minimal head support, this travel pillow offers head, neck and chin support.

The unique shape also gives your head a little mini cushion against the plane wall that stays still during your nap/sleep/rest/pretending you’re in a music video session. So you can pack away that sweatshirt you usually roll up into a ball as a pseudo-pillow. It wasn’t working anyways.

Ah, they look so restful, so dreamy, so good.

As far as actual reviews go, the J-Pillow Travel Pillow currently has a 4.1 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon based on 2,700 reviews. Amazon shoppers say it is ideal for window seat use — once you get used to it.

“It took me a little time to find the right way to use this. Right way meaning the best way for me. Once I did, it was amazing,” wrote one user. “Typically, I have difficulty sleeping on flights since I like to sleep on my side. I am unable to sleep upright. This pillow allows me to lean to the side and sleep pretty decently. I used this on two very long flights 10+ and 15+ hours and I got some semblance of sleep and was thankful.”

Others have also used it as a regular everyday pillow on the sofa, bed, car and wherever else you want to shut your eyes. If you can’t use a product in multiple ways, we don’t want it!
