Posted April 28, 2014 on Travel Weekly

In fact, it is the latest thing in travel pillows -- small enough to fit flat in a briefcase or laptop carry-on and designed to provide effective head support when you are seated, for example, in an airplane. The foam-padded top part of the NapAnywhere, which can be shaped by the user to fit like a cradle, sits below the chin and back of the head while the bottom part molds over the shoulder and acts as a support. An adjustable strap that runs under your armpit then keeps it in place. Fortunately, this contraption is a lot more comfortable than this description might suggest and could be the difference between sleeping through a long-distance flight or arriving, instead, sleepless and with a stiff neck. $59
