I truly recommend this to all travellers using a neck pillow.
Thank you for this product! Being able to rest on a plane without discomfort etc. and to sleep peacefully without head bobbing is a miracle! The Pillowtie keeps the neck/head position in place, I truly recommend this to all travellers using a neck pillow.

The PillowTies recently sent me an interesting piece of travel gear to try which I never thought could have existed. If you are a traveler like me who uses a pillow to sleep on long distance flights but does not like the dangling pillow then this is the exact gear you are looking for. It holds the pillow vertically forcing all the neck movement to be in the horizontal plane. So, one can comfortably sleep straight or sideways while still ensuring that the neck remains in a good shape. In fact, even when I am not sleeping and just playing with my phone or watching videos, I have enjoyed its support in keeping my neck straight. It is relatively sleek and hence would easily fit in your travel jacket or backpack pockets. I, first, thought that this might not work on all different seat configurations but I have tried it over many domestic airlines in the US and it has always worked.
Note: The initial installation does take some time to get used to, therefore, initially, I would recommend using a PillowTie only for long flights (4+ hours).
As funny as it is to watch other people bob around ...
I was selected to test this product. I travel for a living and can not express how this product has changed how I rest on a plane. It allowed me to have un-interruted sleep for 6 hours. No head bobbing, no strange neck positioning or discomfort. As funny as it is to watch other people bob around on a plane while trying to sleep, it is very embarrassing and frustrating to constantly be falling forward, sideways, onto your neighbors shoulders etc. This product is a must have for any traveler that uses a neck pillow. A true solution to what all neck pillows do not provide.

I took the Pillowtie on a recent flight to the East coast, I noticed that about one out of five people brought a neck support pillow for the flight. Halfway through the flight, I also noticed that most people with a support pillow still had their head and neck in very poor alignment in an apparently uncomfortable position. The Pillowtie would easily provide the pillow support while maintaining a proper position of the head and neck.
