Have not used it for a plane yet but have tested it laying down.... so far seems it will be comfortable, can wait to test it in a plane.


the success is in the execution

I just used it on a transatlantic flight. The idea is good, I would only suggest an execution enhancement: make it adjustable. It did not stay in place for me.

Otherwise - all good.


Very useful

This works well and is comfortable. Nice to have something clean to put on. I wish the head balls where a little bigger. But I do recommend it.


might be the answer

Over the years, I have purchased every device available for help sleeping on a plane. These devices ranged from the bulky to the outlandish. Nothing worked (except the private sleeping booth AirBerlin offers in first class!). The Travel Halo analogy of "chocking" a tire made sense to me, so I bit (again), hoping for the miracle product. I have to say it comes closer than anything I've tried so far. It does keep your head from falling sideways (which creates that memorable "airplane neck" we are all so familiar with). Maybe it's a height thing, but I never could exactly position my head where it contacts the bump of the headrest just right, so that my neck didn't arch backwards into the dent, if you know what I mean. In other words, the device did what it said it would do, but I still couldn't get comfortable without some neck support which this device doesn't provide. Also, the one-size-fits-all is a little large for me. The headband wasn't tight enough to keep from easing down where my hair is slippery in the back, so I had to keep adjusting the "chocks" to the most advantageous place on the back of my head. The concept is a good one, though, and I'll take a little tuck in the headband to make it work better. Also - I had a bad cold on this vacation, and had to sit up in the hotel bed to keep from coughing all night. I used the Travel Halo back against my pillows and it helped stabilized my head so I could sleep sitting up!


Nice gift.

I bought four of these for Christmas gifts and everyone reall liked them. In fact, I just today received a picture I of one of my recipients wearing one while a passenger in a car.


A great idea!

I got these for my nephew, who flies a lot, and for my sister, who almost hits her shoulder or chest with her head, when she's riding or watching TV! However, they are stocking stuffers for Christmas. I tried it out and felt it was great.
I do, however, agree with some of the others who feel that the band on the back would be better if adjustable. The stabilizers were not uncomfortable to me at all! I will let you know if they have any further feedback. Thanks, GROMMET, for what you do for all those with ideas that I wish I had come up with! And for allowing us to view all the pro/con feedback when products are introduced.

Husband used it to travel to
Africa and said it was better than convention blow up travel pillow he used to use

The band that goes around the head is too big. But I made it work with a few well place stitches. ALSO the eye cover doesn't really stand out as shown in the photos ~~ it is floppy, BUT it does work well anyway. I will check back after my trip.


Nice Idea

I liked the product, but it is a little big for my head.


Best sleep mask

This is the most comfortable sleep make I've ever used. It does not put pressure around the eye sockets.

The Travel Halo Story

Travel Halo - Compact Travel Pillow & Mask

Travel and Leisure

The Travel Halo was designed to help you sleep comfortably while sitting up on planes, trains, or automobiles.

It was created by Mike Vahey, a U.S. Army veteran and world traveler, who spent many exhausting, sleepless nights on the road. He found that traditional C-shaped pillows pushed his head forward and crunched his neck. Ouch! Worse, those bulky pillows had to be blown up and were tough to carry, especially with new luggage requirements.

Mike wanted to create a different, more effective option. His first prototype was made with tube socks tucked into the back of an eye mask. That original
model developed into a patent-pending “halo” with rear stabilizers, positioned between head and backrest. It cradles your skull and aligns your neck, holding them firmly in place. Better still, a fold-down mask blocks light. Small and compact, it fits in its own pouch, perfect in a purse or briefcase.

Machine washable, you can keep it fresh for every trip. It's so comfy, you may want to wear it lying down too.
