First and foremost condition of necessity: it stays inflated all night. I have had so many air products not stay inflated. This one did perfectly. Didn't lose any air.
Second: it is tiny. Absolutely tiny. And weighs nothing. Yet the pillow itself is not that small. It inflates to a decent size.
Because of the design of it, it really does cradle your head well. It's actually, believe it or not, comfortable. Specifically if you can keep on your back. I move around so this posed another condition:
The pillow was actually comfortable on my sides also. I could kind of tuck it under my shoulder and neck and it stabilized me this way too.
This does like to slip around but there is an easy fix for this. Take some seam sealer and add some lines and dots. No more slipping.
If you would like for me to shoot a video on this, let me know.
Light weight, comfortable.
Easy to inflate
Easy to deflate. The x pattern can lock in air but with some practice you will figure out how to get all of the air out easily.
The feel of the pad against your face isn’t soft nor that comfortable. That is when I place a shirt over it; problem solved.
Cradles the head.
