Gear guide: Sleep through plane crashes with Travel HoodiePillow
I'm constantly on the lookout for innovative, offbeat travel gear and gadgets.
Previously I've checked out fun carry-ons like the scooter suitcase, Ostrich Pillow, jetlag-fighting glasses, a suitcase you wear like a jacket, and Knee Defender clamps that prevent the jet passenger sitting in front of you from slamming their seat back into your knees.
Today I found this simple, comfy-looking Travel HoodiePillow.
It looks like it was inspired by the Hijab that many Muslim women use to cover their heads.
According to the Travel HoodiePillow website, this headwear is made from "premium sweatshirt material," and has adjustable drawstrings "to block out the world around you." The pillow also deflates so you can fold it up neatly. Apparently this neck-saving, eye-sheltering, hand-washable product is ideal for "reading, watching TV, studying, listening to music, napping and sleeping."
I have to respect a company that considers napping and sleeping to be separate actitivies, by the way.
