Where the Idea Came From
The Travel Halo was born after lots of travelling, sore necks and sleepless flights. I have always loved to travel. But I’ve never been able to fall asleep in the car or on a plane. I’ve tried almost every travel pillow on the market with little relief. Regular c-shaped “neck pillows” just don’t work. They still allow your head to move, and neck to bend. And they're not very ergonomic. Just about everyone has tried a conventional travel/neck pillow, but I’ve yet to meet anyone who says they like them.
So, one day after riding shotgun during a long and sleepless car ride, I had the idea. I jumped out of the car, grabbed some old socks, an old tennis headband, lots of tape, and here’s what I came up with:
It was truly ugly, but it worked well! I spent the next year and a half fine tuning the design, researching materials, and finding an appropriate manufacuturer who could produce something to my standards.
I have spent the last two years testing dozens of different designs and materials with one goal in mind: create a comfortable and easy to use travel pillow that actually works.
The Travel Halo is made from a high quality polyester/spandex blend sports cloth. The material is very breathable, lightweight and soft to the touch providing maximum comfort. The Travel Halo features a stretchable band designed to fit any head-size. Two cotton pillows, secured inside the band, are positioned so that they cradle your head and prevent it from rolling to either side while you sleep.
When travelling, I often found myself trying to sleep in brightly lit environments with little success. To address this, the Travel Halo includes a fold-down eye mask to block out ambient light.
The Travel Halo is designed with portability in mind. It sports a super compact, minimalist design that folds up easily when not in use. It can then be stored in the travel pouch included with every Travel Halo.
