I ordered both travel pillows to see which would work best. This pillow (the grey pillow) is a little bigger than the other, which I thought would allow me to rest it on my lap rather than the tray table. The other travel pillow sold by OS (the blue pillow) worked better for me in all respects. I'm small enough (5'2") to rest the blue one on my lap or on the tray table, depending on what feels better to my back. The blue one has a single two -tiered port for very easy inflation and quick deflation. The grey pillow has separate valves for inflation and for deflation, and the flap for inflation makes blowing it up a little harder. The grey has a fleece-like covering which is ok, but doesn't add much to the comfort. It also has a sleeve for your handls while you sleep, but it's looser than the sleeve on the blue pillow, and I think my hands would sllp out if I fell asleep. So, it's a little more expensive, not as easy to use, and takes more breaths (and more effort) to inflate than the blue travel pillow. Perhaps its size would make this the better choice for a taller person, but I liked the blue pillow enough to buy two more .
The only problem with this product was deflating it and storing it between flights. The seat space is limited these days that it wasn't really comfortable to use. So it's not really the product or manufacturers fault but the fault of the airlines for cramming humans into a plane with less room then sardines in a sardine can.

I had been eyeing this pillow since seeing something similar years ago in Sky Mall. I was so excited that Overstock carried it. I flew from Newark, New Jersey, to Honolulu, Hawaii, a ten-plus-hour flight, and slept for all but about an hour of it. The pillow worked better while I was in the window seat than in the center because I could also lean to the side. I used an airline pillow on top of the travel pillow for comfort. It was well worth the price and the space in my carryon. I'll definitely be bringing it on our trip to Africa next year.
It is perfect I was looking for a pillow that can help me sleep on the plane so i search and search for 2 months then i bought the TRAVELON Pillow. It is so comfort and excellent size do not be afraid to buy it it help me in my fly from Middle East to USA it is 13 hours Thanks
