    This or that? Trtl or the “other” brand?, October 2, 2017

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I acutally really like this thing. Kudos to the inventors. I bought this Trtl brand in black and another brand for $10.00 cheaper and although the other one actually does work just fine there were some differences I wish I had known before buying. So if I may help anyone else in making this choice.

    Trtl will be B1 because its the black one in the pics and the other brand will be G2 because well you guessed it…..its’s gray (looks more like brown in the photos).

    Pic# 1
    I have put B1 (the original brand) next to the competitor G2 and you can clearly see that B1 has thicker padding however the fleece is just about as soft on one as the other so that is not a problem. I like the color of B1’s velcro better (gray) than G2’s greenish-yellow color not that it matters you won’t see it when its on anyhow. In terms of working better however I like how easy G2’s design pulls apart without feeling like your going to rip the Velcro off the stitching like you do on B1. (Sorry no pic with velcro colors.)

    Pic# 2 & 3
    Here is where it really starts making sense in the price. In B1 the plastic piece is really solid and super easy to get out of the fabric to clean and wash it. G2 however has a horrible design and I almost ripped it trying to get the cheaper plastic out. The design here on G2 sucks. How do they expect us to clean it? B1 Wins hands down in this area. Not only is the plastic support piece built soooo much sturdier in B1 but it is 10Xs easier to get out of the fleece casing but with the tag being so easy to find in B1 washing really is so much easier in this choice.

    Pic #4, 5, & 6
    In terms of a better deal? Well G2 is the winner here. The design works just about as good and you actually get a couple of extras to make your trip even better in terms of getting some shut eye.
    Summary:
    If you are wanting something a little more cushy or maybe you have a fat head? Sorry that wasn’t nice but anyhow B1 Ttrl would definitely be the one for you however if you want something that works just about as good and don’t mind fussing to get the plastic piece out of the fleece each time you wash it and saving some money while at it well then I would definitely give G2 a try for $19.99 especially if your someone who would actually use the eye cover and/or ear plugs which for you would make this a no brainer.

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Trtl Pillow – Scientifically Proven Super Soft Neck Support Travel Pillow – Machine Washable Grey (Kitchen)

    I originally purchased this to travel to Singapore and Tokyo, Japan during November. My entire flight, including round trip, totaled about 40 hours (and 6 flights). I was wary of the Trtl at first, but now I am so glad I bought this. I have absolutely no regret! It is possibly the best purchase I have ever made for traveling. I can’t even imagine ever traveling without it again. THAT was how great this Trtl turned out to be!

    SUMMARY PROs AND CONs (if you don’t want to read the whole review):
    PROS:
    – Nice colors (never embarrassed to wear it)
    – Nice cloth texture
    – Velcro only sticks to limited materials
    – Light-weight
    – Keeps your posture upright
    – Prevents neck pains, crinks, strains, stress, aches
    – Keeps you from nodding off onto your neighbors
    – Puts you to sleep a lot quicker
    – KEEPS YOU ASLEEP, making long flights seem a lot shorter, and hastens recovery from jet lag
    – Cozy and comfortable
    – One size fits all (well, we are 5’1 and 5’5)
    – Cloth is machine-washable
    – Pet fur DOESN’T stick to it, and if it does, very easy to clean off with a few pats
    – Helps to mask the smell of smelly airplanes or smelly neighbor on the plane
    – Can use Trtl to cover up your mouth

    CONS:
    – Doesn’t fold flat
    – Gets too hot (definitely not suitable for hot summers, unless AC is blasting)
    – Can’t quite fit ear phones and ear buds comfortably
    – Velcro sticks to some materials

    NEITHER PRO OR CON:
    – Price (on the costly side, but so worth the purchase for me)
    – Doesn’t have a carry case – I actually prefer not to have a carry case. I don’t like to take my time carefully placing things back into its packaging (nor taking it out of the package), but I always feel obligated to if one is included. I have a system of my own that works for me, and that’s to make life as simple as possible, including just stuffing the Trtl into the front slot of my backpack and move along.
    – Plastic neck-support is quite springy – while it was just the right amount of springy for me, a head that’s heavier may end up tilting a little too much for comfort (I’m not going to weigh my head for you guys…). Then again, you just need to wrap the cloth tighter to keep your head-tilt higher.
    – If you have short hair (to neck length), you may look weird with the Trtl or you may look awesome.

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
    The cost was okay, to be honest. I felt that this was on the costlier side, but then I remember one year when I didn’t bring any neck pillow and was forced to buy one at the airport that costed $30… Yeah. It wasn’t even that great of a pillow, sadly. With that in mind, I was willing to dish out the money for something that did work. So, I gave the Trtl a try, seeing how it had my number 1 concern addressed, which was whether it would give my neck any crinks, pain, or aches. The other feature I liked was that it was like a scarf. It didn’t look ridiculous like a plushy toilet seat, if you know what I mean (imagine what extraterrestrials would think of us when they see a fat toilet seat wrapped around our neck!). Looks aside, I only cared about the comfort, that is, whether it would keep my neck from pain.

    When I received this, I noticed how touchably soft the fleece-like cloth was. Next thing was how flimsy the plastic inside felt. It’s hard to imagine it could support the weight of anyone’s head. Finally, I was a little concerned about the velcro. Having a dog, I know velcros tend to wear out really fast as it latches on to just about everything and wear the velcro down. The Trtl velcro, however, only latches on to certain types of fabric – which is really good! I tried latching it on to my jacket, my hair, my pet, and some of my clothes. I’m happy to say that it only latched on to one of my extremely cottony shirt that I don’t even wear. Everything else (including the Trtl fabric) was NOT affected at all. Super plus there!

    It is also machine-washable. Right out of the bag, this thing really stunk of factory-plastic. I washed it immediately (after taking out the plastic, of course). On a side note about washing the Trtl, it’s best to test the Velcro on the clothes you will wash it with. If the Velcro doesn’t stick to the clothes, you can wash the Trtl with those clothes. Otherwise, wash it separately just to be safe. The last thing you want is to wear the Trtl’s Velcro down to unusable condition. Of course, remember to take the plastic out before washing the Trtl, because the plastic is not machine-washable and you will damage it.

    At first, putting on the Trtl was awkward. It was springy, like my head was going to snap the plastic head-support. The shoulder-support was uncomfortable. However, after a few tries, I finally got it at the right tightness around my neck, at the right position to support my head, and at the…

    This thing is the greatest thing invented since chicken and biscuits. It’s like a nice scarf with just enough support to keep your neck just in the right position. I highly recommend it. Works great with big headphones too.
