The Ultimate Travel Sleep Solution - Nod Travel Pillow

$307,274

7,280

RATIONALE: The reason it's hard to rest or sleep while traveling is because you can't keep your head, neck and back perpendicular and at a 90-degree angle similar to how you sleep in bed at night. This results in...

  • Jet Lag
  • Neck and Body Pain
  • Awkwardly Waking Up On Your Fellow Passengers

Throw away all those useless travel pillows

 

Enjoy truly great sleep while traveling with the Nod Travel Pillow!

The ULTIMATE Travel Sleep Solution! 

 

Here is what makes the Nod Travel Pillow "The Ultimate Sleep Travel Solution"...

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Travel Blanket is a wind and water proof, compact travel blanket that is the perfect solution for staying warm and cozy on drafty planes, trains and cars. Easily stowed in a carry on, backpack, briefcase or purse. Never use an airplane blanket again!

 Features Include...

  • "Open Back Design" in-order to step into the blanket all at once, which also means the blanket cannot fall off when asleep and covers you from head to toe
  • Easy to slip on and off while fully seated in cramped quarters
  • Optional Hood for keeping your head warm and privacy
  • Front Storage Pocket perfect for keeping your smart phone or tablet while listening to music or while you sleep; theft prevention
  • Ultra thin PU fabric is draft proof and moisture resistant 
  • Folds up into itself as a small bag for easy storage, making it easy and minimal for long journeys (both pieces designed to fit into pocket for storage - 5"x7"); see below

Travel Combo - Nod Travel Pillow + Blanket 

 

Hello everyone and welcome to the Nod Travel Pillow Kickstarter campaign. 

Through extensive travels over the years as a professional commercial interior designer, I was always searching for a better way to rest on a plane, car or any form of transportation. I found traveling to be a tiring task and never quite found the perfect solution for really being able to rest on a plane or in a car.     

For years I searched to find a solution for forward head motion but nothing on the market seemed to work. I also designed many prototypes for travel pillows and blankets but nothing worked as it should.  All were too bulky and none solved the forward head motion issue. 

The simple solution came to me while traveling on a plane to visit a friend.  When I arrived back home, I sat out to create my simple and effective design and wallah... the Nod Travel Pillow was born !

I am very excited to bring this product to Kickstarter and see people everywhere enjoying real rest and comfort as they travel to their destinations all over the globe. This simple yet revolutionary designed product will soon change the way the whole world travels.

Thank you for your support of the Nod Travel Pillow and I hope you find yourself more comfortable,rested and refreshed on your next adventure.

Wishing you safe and restful travels,

Paula Blankenship
