A travel pillow made by a Swedish bed manufacturer is being touted as the gold standard for frequent flyers who need valuable shut-eye during their flight.
Made by the oldest bed and mattress manufacturer in Sweden, the Hästens Travel Pillow is made with 100 percent duck feathers and is treated with SanProCare, an eco-friendly finish that is supposed to absorb moisture five times faster and release it twice as quickly as conventional pillows for year-round comfort.
The price tag for Swedish-style luxury? About $110 USD.
Covered in the brand's signature blue and white checkered pattern, the pillow also doubles as storage space and can hold items like passports, iPods and reading glasses.
After serving as a travel companion, it also unfolds into a full-sized pillow which can be used at the hotel.
The premium pillow has the stamp of approval from editors at travel blog Jaunted and Departures (a luxury magazine for American Express Platinum Card members).
If $110 on a travel pillow is beyond your budget, at $40 the Cabeau Evolution Pillow comes highly recommended by Amazon users, who gave it top marks for the support provided by the memory foam. For more recommendations, visit Amazon's top-rated travel pillows at http://amzn.to/16uvWNL.
