Multiple ways to position it
Extra-long arms keep your chin from drooping
Doesn’t stay put
No storage bag
Tight around the neck
The BCOZZY Chin Supporting Travel Pillow delivers on its promise of giving you an extra boost of chin support. By adding some length to the pillow’s arms, it prevents your head from falling forward and takes the strain off of your neck. I took the BCOZZY for a test run to see how it performs in a variety of scenarios, paying special attention to its various features, from its design and durability to how comfortable it is and whether or not it’s worth the price tag.
Design: Multiple ways to wear it
The BCozzy Chin Supporting Travel Pillow is designed to be worn three different ways: You can wrap the pillow to elevate one side of your head, double it up on one shoulder without wrapping it, or wrap it around your neck evenly. These different options help the wearer customize the pillow and switch it up mid-flight, if they want to. The back of the pillow—the section worn behind your neck—is thinner than the rest of the pillow, which I thought made it even more comfortable.

Portability: No special features but no complaints
This neck pillow works best if you wrap it the handle of your suitcase or backpack strap. While the pillow itself is quite bendable and can fit into a small space in your bag, attach it to the outside with the handy blue button strap to preserve its shape. Do note, however, that it doesn’t include a special carrying case.
Comfort: Pick the right size
The extra-long arms of this travel pillow did add some extra padding around my neck, which felt a little claustrophobic at times. If that concerns, remember that the pillow can also be worn doubled-up on one shoulder without wrapping it completely around your neck—that should help you breathe easier.
There are also a number of sizes (child, adult, and adult XL) that offer a more personalized fit. If your neck is bigger then 16 inches, the manufacturer recommends buying the adult XL size.
I found that my longer hair made this pillow slide around more. To avoid that, I pulled the pillow tighter around my neck or put my hair up completely. And while I found the polyester fabric soft to the touch, it wasn't very breathable
Durability: Throw it in the washing machine
Unfortunately, this travel pillow doesn’t come with a storage bag, which makes it hard to keep clean as you navigate airports, Uber rides, hotels, and more. Keep that in mind when you're choosing a color, since some colors show dirt more easily.
A big plus, however, is that the entire pillow is machine-washable. While many travel pillows have just a washable cover, the entire BCozzy can go in your washing machine to get clean before you next adventure.
Price: Worth the added feature
In terms of travel pillows, this one is priced right down the middle. You can find less expensive options that deliver the same general support, but this pillow’s longer support arms make it well worth the few extra dollars to prevent neck pain.
Competition: All about support
There are plenty of less expensive options out there that also include a travel bag, but the additional chin support from this pillow makes it a worthy purchase for travelers looking to avoid neck kinks.
If you’re looking for something that will give you even more support, you might want to opt for the Trtl. But for those on the hunt for a basic neck pillow, you’ll find everything you need with the BCozzy.
