as someone looking for a neck pillow. Never used one but a long flight might require one. Do any of you guys have one to recommend?

This? I don't like his bed pillows so not sure I would like this. If BBB has them I wouldn't be opposed to trying it out though.
It's their regular pillow, but really small. I use it exclusively for crashing on the couch. You could basically squish the thing down to fit in your back pocket.

Yup. Got four total during a sale. Two Kings and two smalls. My daily drivers now.

Whats in them? Why so good?

I just got a parchute down king firm. It's the only down pillow I've ever had that I can side sleep on. Usually I need two at hotels. Now I've got this baller pillow that can back or side sleep and Martha Stewart would be proud.

That does seem to tick a lot of the boxes. Which other ones have you tried? I like the pump too vs blowing it.

I can't even type all of them.
Pump + inflatable + neck support. The answer is that you need something adjustable to fit you. I've used this thing for 50+ flights of all sizes. Lost one and bought another.

Shredded memory foam. Not sure what it is, but every other pillow keeps me tossing and turning. I'd give down another try. Usually squishes too flat during the night though.

For $13 bucks why not ordering it now. Your already on the hook for $200 what's another $13?

You can try the My Pillows at Bed bath and Beyond. I have 2 Tempurpedic pillows that are great but have seen better days. I will replace with the same. I tried the My Pillows, more like felt them at the store and they weren't for me but obviously millions of people love them.

I bought some shredded memory foam off of Amazon and was really disappointed. I think a lot of the reviews are very personal or their robots. It was hands down the worst pillows I've ever owned and I bought four of them because the reviews were so good. it's also possible that I just bought a cheap one because his Amazon and mass produced and what not. They got really lumpy and gave me and my wife (very different sleepers) neck pain.

I love the feel of down but I also hate that they go so flat. A good down pillow will last 15 years while down alternative is 5 or less. even though it cost a lot more it's worth it in the long run.

Not saying anybody should just run out and buy a down pillow but if that's what you're after I would say the parachute brand is the only one that I would tell people to check out right off the bat. They come in different firmness and it's easy to return them. I bought two down pillows from West elm and despite the fancy brand they were not very good and had all the same problems. Only average build quality and were flat halfway through the night. Had to have two just to get the combination of that down feel with enough support.
