So many features in an ALL-IN-ONE carrying pouch. See why we call it The IMPOSSIBLE Travel Pillow:
Aaron has dedicated the last TEN years, YES 10 YEARS, developing a solution to prevent what he calls Flight Neck Syndrome. FNS can be quite painful and is caused by sleeping with traditional travel pillows that do little to prevent your head from falling forward or rolling sideways.
Our hero has finally approved the final retail version of My Lofty Pillow for global distribution, and mass production is officially under way. At last, what frequent fliers didn’t think was possible will soon become a reality through his unique invention.
We begin with its self-contained CARRYING POUCH. Less than 7” at its longest side, it won’t take up much space in your carry-on. *Size was increased from 6" to 7" (See Campaign Update).
Do you like to travel light? My Lofty Pillow SECURES your flight essentials so you can speed through checkpoint.
What makes My Lofty Pillow truly unique? It has WINGS — It literally has WINGS — to keep your head from falling side to side and your neck from straining.
My Lofty Pillow does the impossible. It unzips from a carrying pouch and CONVERTS into a comfortable travel pillow. When you're wide awake, simply ZIP it up and TUCK it away.
Designed with a WIDE INTAKE VALVE, My Lofty Pillow inflates in just 2 to 3 breaths.
Chin support has velcro fasteners so you can ADJUST My Lofty Pillow to the perfect fit.
With My Lofty Pillow, you’re assured to travel in complete style and comfort, relieving stress and anxiety at the same time.
Wings create a sound barrier to MINIMIZE BACKGROUND NOISE.
My Lofty Pillow provides complete and total HEAD, NECK and CHIN SUPPORT so you can rest in the air or between flights.
PROTECTIVE FABRIC keeps your head, neck and face from unwanted germs and seat bacteria.
TWO POCKETS can hold your cell phone, charger, passport, boarding pass, and other flight essentials.
My Lofty Pillow sports a durable exterior with an ultra soft interior. Available in THREE DENIM COLORS. Choose from black, blue, and pink!
I can really use your collective support to put an END to Flight Neck Syndrome! To date, I've used my personal funds to produce the 1st 3,000 units, but that is not nearly enough to supply all of the frequent fliers in all of the planes in all of our global skies today. I'd love for our campaign to raise enough to order 50,000 more units!
All because of you, we blew way past our campaign goal! WOO HOO WOO HAAA! On behalf of the entire My Lofty Pillow team, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for making the impossible possible.
Wishing you safe and pain-free travels,

SELECT THE REWARD with the most attractive package. If you choose 'PRIORITY BOARDING' and you want more than just one, simply increase your contribution by multiples of how many pillows you want.
Make your contribution at checkout. Shipping is a flat fee of $8 to anywhere in the USA ($13 international), regardless of how many pillows we send you.

We've made many improvements since the idea of My Lofty Pillow was born, but the essence of it remains the same.
Pain free travel is just days away. Manufacturing is busy creating 3,000 units NOW, and we will begin shipping units to early backers by April 30th. Back our campaign early and our team will work non-stop to get it to you before summer vacation!
My Lofty Pillow has international PATENTS PENDING. This would not have seen the light of day without your faith and support!
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge to completing this project was getting the pillow to INFLATE to perfect form and then DEFLATE to a self-contained carrying pouch. This was no easy task! It took two years with dozens of prototypes and design iterations before the final retail sample was approved in the Spring of 2017. Since we are now in mass production, the risk is minimal. Our trusted manufacturer has been hustling to make 3,000 units in time to arrive during Spring 2018. The fantastic news is that they are totally on track to ship a quality product before the campaign even ends. Thanks to Kickstarter, we can order a large quantity and keep My Lofty Pillow at a very affordable price for our customers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
