Gadgets are things that make life easier, they provide the user with a quick and easy way of doing something no matter how trivial it may seem. However, if there is one occasion where gadgets can really make a difference it is for the traveller, they often have limited space and weight restrictions, but still require some modern day comforts. I have compiled my Top Five gadgets that have been designed to make the life of the traveller easier, but at the same time must be portable enough so that they can be packed away in the luggage. New style of travel pillow On a long trip, it is inevitable that the traveller is going to either need some sleep or simply fall asleep, especially with the younger travellers amongst us! Put the pillows provided on a plane for instance often fall to the ground. However, this is not going to happen with the TravelRest as hugs the user because it attaches to the back of the seat wrapping around the user. These are the features and details for the TravelRest fleece cover;

With its patented ergonomic shape, the TravelRest pillow attaches to any seat back, nestling against the head and neck to provide support and comfort in flight or on the road. Even without a seat back, TravelRest’s versatile design provides excellent support – simply sling the tether cord over your head and shoulder… and relax. It’s The Travel Pillow, Reinvented!
