Can anyone recommend a travel pillow?

I'm thinking of getting one for my brother for Christmas. I've looked on Amazon but so many of the reviews are fake I don't trust it any more!

He's a pretty big guy, maybe 6'2''ish, and reasonably well built. He flies long haul so it needs to be comfortable and supportive for longer sleeps, not just naps. Any recommendations?

Would he want neck support or lumbar support?

Wilko have some very cheap pillows if he just wants a normal light pillow.

The Guardian reviewed the Ostrich travel pillow a while ago - it looks a bit mad but is supposed to be good. Friends of mine really rate the J Pillow as well, which is a bit different but apparently works well.

I recently purchased trtl travel pillow and used it on a 16.5hr non-stop flight, where I was sitting in Econ+. I adjusted it to sleep to the right. Slept a solid 7-8 hours with no sleep aid medication. Did not have a sore neck or back.

I'm a very frequent flyer and have had a zillion neck pillows. My current favourite is thr Bcozzy as it supports your chin, or you can stack it to lean against the window etc

Another vote for the Trtl. I’ve used it at the side and behind my head and it’s made such a difference. I can’t sleep soundly on a plane like the pp, but it’s so comfortable and my neck doesn’t hurt at all.

If it's an Economy flight, I like the Trtl. If it's Business etc, I take a small (baby-size) feather pillow (from Cologne & Cotton) with a silk pillowcase. Because I'm a primadonna. Grin It's lovely!!
