  1. Greg

    Works great, the portability is why I like it. I can put it in my pocket, and use when needed.

  2. Linda S

    This cushion provides just the right amount of support while sitting on the couch. I plan to take it on international flight.

  3. Matthew A.

    Very convenient for work, packs up very small and stronger than it looks.

  4. Kat Grant

    This is my second. So easy to travel with. Get on the plane and inflate a bit and be comfortable. Then the rest of the journey keep it deflated and packed away.

    Excellent for air travel

    This is NOT the original like I bought years ago, which was a flock not wholly plastic pillow covering, and unlike the original I bought years ago, it doesn’t come in a protective tube, just in a ziplock bag. Very disappointed.

    I am very disappointed. I have used these wonderful air cushions for years but eventually the air escapes through the place where you blow in the air and they have to be replaced. When I placed my order, I couldn’t choose the navy blue one and was forced to order the grey one. Then, when the 2 cushions arrived, I was horrified that they are made of plastic! The previous ones had a velvet-like finish. Disappointment best expresses my review.
