We might have been divided on the useful merits of the original HoodiePillow, but this updated travel version strikes a perfect balance between portability, comfort and its ability to block out all distractions. Like the original, the Travel HoodiePillow is basically just the hood from a hoodie attached to a soft cushion.
But in this case the whole far outweighs the sum of its parts, since besides providing a comfy place to rest your head when you can't lay down, you can also draw the hood closed for modicum of privacy. It's no cone of silence, that's for sure, but for just $20 you can't ask for a better travel companion. [HoodiePillow via The Green Head]
