Another aspect of the Skyrest travel pillow is the ability to be able to pack it down into a very small and concise packet that fits tidily into your travel or flight bag. Using it is just as easy as well. When you feel like you need a sleep whether it is through tiredness or just boredom, all you do is get the pillow out of your bag and in a couple of minutes it is inflated ready for use.
