Product Review: Infinity Pillow

Does this pillow really have endless uses? (Spoiler: It does not.)

What Is it: The Infinity Pillow, a pillow that takes its design from the Mobius strip.

Price and Where to Buy: $59 on Huzidesign.com.

Pros:

  • The circular pillow can be twisted into a number of different configurations and be used as a pillow, neck cushion, back support, eye mask, neck or foot warmer, scarf, etc.
  • Natural bamboo fabric cover feels luxurious
  • Comes with a carrying case and strap to compact the pillow for traveling
  • Interior padding is made of 3M Thinsulate, which is soft and fluffy
  • Lightweight
  • Entire pillow can be machine washed

Cons:

  • At approximately 13″ x 8″ x 6″, the Infinity Pillow is very bulky for traveling
  • The Infinity Pillow doesn’t provide as much support as traditional travel neck pillows

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 8/10. The seemingly infinite (but not really) number of uses for this pillow are very useful—we really liked using it as an eyemask/pillow combo and as a head pillow on a tray table (or desk.)
  • Portability: 4/10. Although lightweight (around 1.3 lbs), the pillow is bulky.
  • Value: 7/10. $59 is pretty pricey for a travel pillow, but you are getting multiple products in one with the Infinity.
  • Cool Factor: 8/10. Depends on how you use it. The traveler comfortably using the Infinity as a back rest? Cool. The couple sharing the Infinity Pillow or using it as a foot warmer in public? Not so cool.

Final Verdict: If you are one of those people that brings your full size pillow with you when you travel, the Infinity Pillow is right up your alley. If you hate traditional travel pillows, but still want neck/back support or a versatile pillow, then the Infinity Pillow is worth it. If you only like inflatable neck pillows when you travel, then skip this one, as it will be too bulky for you.
