whenever I am traveling, it is 18 hours long flight or a pretty long drive. I had a travel inflatable pillow. I was a little skeptical if this pillow can fit my handbag easily. It is so compact. It is very comfortable as it is a memory foam pillow. It comes with the earplugs in a small box and an eye mask. I feel it is a bargain considering the quality of all the included stuff. The pillow has strings so it doesn't fall down. very well designed.
