SkyMall Monday: SkyRest Travel Pillow

I suppose it's about time that I used my SkyMall Monday bully pulpit to review a product that is directly related to travel. Sure, you could use the Double Umbrella on a trip to London, but what about when you're en route to your destination? How will you arrive there well-rested and prepared to make the most of your time away from your empty, passionless life? Well, you'll rest easy on your flight if you have the SkyRest Travel Pillow.

You could certainly purchase an airline pillow covered in lice and chlamydia or carry along one of those horseshoe shaped neck pillows that scream, "I'm a loser." But studies have shown that the human body's natural sleeping position is seated upright while the head and neck are tilted forward at a 68.4 degree angle. What studies? Hey, look over there!

Available only in dark seafoam green, the SkyRest Travel Pillow is inconspicuous and allows you to sleep while your fellow travelers are none the wiser. And it's inflatable, so you know you'll sleep like a baby once you have exhausted yourself filling it with air. Considering that it's 14" wide, 12" deep, 11" tall in the front and 17" tall in the back, you'll most likely have it inflated in time for the person next to you to take her first bathroom break. At which time I'm sure you'll easily be able to move it out of the way for her.

And the best part? Since it rests on your lap, when the person in front of you reclines his seat, the pillow will be pushed back into you. It's like getting a face massage in a fancy spa...but for free!

Just look at what the product description has to say about this fantastic product:

Why not join our many thousands of satisfied customers and enjoy the benefits of this uniquely different and very flexible travel pillow.

Yes, people who use this product like to be influenced by peer pressure and abhor proper punctuation. And while I have never actually seen any of these satisfied customers in person, I am sure that this person wishes that she had purchased the SkyRest Travel pillow before her flight. Don't make the same mistake she did!
