Don't Buy It, Until We Try It: Total Pillow

Posted: Updated:

Getting comfortable when you travel or when you're at work is sometimes easier said than done.  If you're like me, you usually end up with a stiff neck or back.  Well, there may be a compact pillow you can take just about anywhere you go to help ease the tension. In this week's "Don't Buy It, Until We Try It," I tried out the Total Pillow.

It doesn't matter if you're traveling by car or plane, when you go on long trips, you sometimes end soar and stiff.  So, we decided to try out the Total Pillow.  We're going to go inside the Minot International Airport and check in with travelers to hear what they have to say.

"Have you ever seen anything like this before?  Yes.  Have you ever tried it out yourself?  No.  Do you think something like this will work?  It even says it will hook on your suitcase too.  It looks convenient," says Berry Johnson, traveler.

Traveler Kelsey Jay says, "I think I may have seen it on TV, yeah."

We took it out of the package and it was ready to use.

Johnson says, "Yeah, it feels pretty soft."

"It feels like it would, like, fit whatever your curves in your body and stuff," says Jay.

You can twist, turn and shape the Total Pillow any way you like.  So, we started with the folded neck rest.

Johnson says, "With it folded like that, it makes you sit in a weird position."

"When you wear it on your neck, I feel like it is all in your ears and everything because it's like a flower," says Jay.  "Yeah, maybe it's just the shape of this one."

And, it can also be used as a seat cushion.

Johnson says, "It feels like you're sitting on a doughnut."

"I don't really like that one," says Jay.  "[It] kind of feels like a booster seat."

One feature advertised for travelers is the Total Pillow will fit on your luggage.  We're going to try that out.  Just slide it down on the handle.  Now, if your handle is any bigger than this one, you may run into some problems because it's a little tricky to get on.  It seems like it's secure in place, now we're ready.

So, are we comfortable with the Total Pillow?

Johnson says, "I probably wouldn't spend $15-20 on it.  Nope."

I have to say the concept for this product is great.  It's very handy and portable.  I love the fact it fits on the handle of your luggage.  But, it's hard to get in a good position, so it ends up being more of a pain than using just a regular pillow.

So, this week's "Don't Buy It, Until We Try It," earns a thumbs down.

 If there are any "As Seen on TV" products you would like to try out, email Amy at afox@kmot.com or leave me a message on the KMOT Facebook page.
