Katie: Hey, guys.
It's Katie from Mattress Clarity.
I have in my hands the trtl Travel Pillow.
You may be thinking, "How is this a pillow?"There's lots going on here.
It has something very special on the inside.
What is that?That's a secret I'll never tell.
Of course, I'm going to tell it to you.
It's a review.
Let's get started.
[music]Katie: Two things real quick.
If you've got any questions during this review, don't hesitate to comment below.
I'm always checking.
I'll be happy to do my best to answer your questions.
The other thing I want to mention is that the trtl Pillow is just one of many travelpillows I've had the chance to review for Mattress Clarity.
I've picked my favorite ones.
They're on a list.
All you've got to do is Google Mattress Clarity Best Travel Pillows.
It'll be the first link that pops up.
Make sure to check that out if you're interested.
Let's talk about the trtl Pillow.
This is indeed a travel pillow.
Pillow is probably a generous term in the sense that it doesn't look like your traditionalpillow, doesn't even look like your traditional U-shaped neck pillow.
It's got its own design going on.
I'm going to talk about the materials and show you how this all comes together.
This outer-cover right here is a polyester fleece.
You pull it off, I guess, from the Velcro.
You'll see this long length.
This is going to wrap around your neck.
Right here, there's an internal plastic support structure.
This is what's going to lay along your jaw, your neck, and the back of your neck, basically.
You're going to use the fleece polyester part to wrap it around and secure it so it looksjust like a scarf, essentially.
You can put your head to the side.
You're going to have that support.
It's great if you're in a middle seat, or if you don't have something to rest your headagainst when you're traveling.
It's going to give you all that support right there on your head and neck.
The folks at trtl do say that this is scientifically proven to give you more head support thana traditional U-shaped neck pillow.
Just envision that being the same idea in terms of what support you're going to gethere.
The whole thing is machine washable and dry-able.
Just make sure you take out the internal plastic structure first.
I love that it comes in four different colors and different color combinations.
It's pretty reasonably priced at just around $30 at full price.

Now let's get back to the video.
I want to tell you all the things I like about the trtl Pillow.
First of all, it's so innovative in its design.
It's lightweight and easy to use.
There's great instructions both on the pillow itself for you to keep on here.
There's a little sticker if you want it to stay on the outside packaging.
Mostly, they do a good job of anticipating everything you're going to need to help youstay comfortable no matter where you're traveling, how you're traveling or what position you'rein.
I like that this fleece fabric, not only is it soft, but it's wide enough on the neckpart so that you can pull it up over your mouth and nose.
If there's a bad smell or there's someone coughing next to you, all those things havehappened while you're traveling, you can block out that issue.
Tell people that you don't want to be bothered just by covering up your face.
I also love that you can throw the whole thing in the washing machine.
Again, take that internal plastic support system out first.
If you do travel frequently and you want to keep your pillow clean, very easy to do it.
You can just add it to your regular load of laundry.
I like this gray color personally.
It comes in four different colors and color combinations.
Whatever your style, there's something there for you as well.
I also like the fact that it's easy to put in a carry-on, to add to your luggage.
It's very easy to travel with.
It's not taking up a lot of room.
Finally, the affordability is a key asset here.
It's only about $30 full price, which in the range of how expensive travel pillows canbe, this is pretty good.
It wouldn't be a complete Mattress Clarity Travel Pillow review if I didn't tell youa few things you need to consider about this pillow.
I want to talk about the internal plastic support structure a little bit.
First of all, it's one size.
Depending on your body type, it may feel a little bit different to you.
I also want to mention that you need to pay attention to how you take it out when you'recleaning it.
It does need to go back in a specific way in order for the whole pillow to come togetherwith the placement of the Velcro and everything.
Just keep that in mind.
I also want to talk about how there isn't a cozy factor to this pillow.
It's more of a neck brace support system, which is great for when you're traveling.
There is a little piece of memory foam over here.
It's not straight plastic to your neck, but it's not, again, have that cozy feel.
The last thing I want to bring up is earbuds.
If you have earbuds, just be prepared for them to get a little smooshed against yourear when you're laying your head to the side with this travel pillow.
It will come up just to the bottom of your ears.
I can see why people like the trtl Travel Pillow so much.
It is a nice take on the support that you would get from a traditional U-shaped neckpillow, except that you're able to pull it as close to your head and neck as you wantwith this design.
It is affordably priced and it's easy to clean, which are two big things, especially if youtravel frequently.
For me personally, I was able to snooze with this just in a nap-like setting.
On a shorter flight, I think it's doable.
Overnights or long hauls, I think it may just become a little bit too much on your headand neck.
Although, you could move it forward and sleep with your head forward as well.
It's yours to decide.
Definitely check out my full written review for more details up on mattressclarity.
Again, let me know if you had any questions.
