- How is the Travel Sloodie different than other travel pillows?
Our Travel Sloodie is a travel pillow + much more. The Travel Sloodie has an oversized mesh hood that blocks out plenty of light and creates privacy. Arm rests made of a breathable lightweight fabric that hold your arms comfortably by your side and away from your neighbor. Customizable cushion tightening – button/loop system at the neck. 1 easily accessible inner front pocket for cell phones or personal belongings.
- What are the different sizes available?
We have 3 sizes available, A Standard size that fits most people who are between 5’-6” and 6’-4”, A Small size that fits adults and youth 5’-5” and under, and an XL size that fits adults 6’-5” and over or those who are 230 lbs and up. If you want your Hoodie to feel quite baggy, feel free to purchase the next size up. These are designed to gently compress your arms in towards your body, so they are built to fits you more snugly and stretch easily. If you feel like you are a borderline decision, then consider if you’d like to feel more hugged when you sleep or more loosely covered. The neck cushions for the Small size are considerably smaller than the Standard. The neck cushions for the Standard and the XL are the same size. Please reference “Size Chart” in our shop for help on sizing.
- Why is the Travel Sloodie more expensive than traditional neck pillows?
The Travel Sloodie is an innovative, deluxe multi-functional pillow + dynamic features that basic u-shaped travel pillows don’t provide at all like a place to rest your arms, a privacy hood, a cushion tightening system, and 1 integrated mesh-compression cell phone/passport pocket. In short, it creates added privacy and comfort that traditional neck pillows don’t offer.
- Can you wear the Travel Sloodie with a seat-belt?
Yes, easily. It is very safe for travel and still allows you to easily buckle a plane/car/bus seat belt across your waist or shoulder
- How are you supposed to wear the Travel Sloodie ?
Like a basic hoodie! Our Travel Sloodie is made to be manipulated to your sleeping needs, therefore there are several ways to wear the Travel Sloodie and adjust it to your comfort zone. There is no single correct way to wear it … and we love that! See our main product info video for the 3 basic modes of wearing.
- Do you have to put your arms in the elbow rests ?
Not at all. Our Travel Sloodies multi-purpose features allow increased comfort in any wearing mode including solely resting the neck cushions around your neck like a traditional neck pillow or slung across your shoulder for easy maneuverability.
- How many adjustment levels are available with the button-loop tightening system at the neck?
There are 3 different button/loop settings ranging from a snug tight fit to a looser fit around the neck for your personal resting preference.
- Can you use the Travel Sloodie in cars, trains and buses as well?
Yes, our hybrid Travel Sloodie was created to accompany you on all travel adventures. And especially in public places where you need that extra privacy.
- What is the purpose of the oversized mesh hood?
While it can easily be tucked out of the way, the lightweight mesh hood is an essential feature of the Travel Hoodie. It reaches down past your eyes and face to block out glaring beams of light and allows for maximum privacy and self-comfort.
- Is there a product warranty on your Travel Sloodie?
Yes, there is a 1-year warranty on every Travel Sloodie.
- What is the best way to pack or store your Travel Sloodie?
There are several options : It was made to easily fit on a regular bedroom closet hanger for long term storage, but you can also quickly wrap it up within itself using the arm rests and then toss it in a backpack or suitcase. You can also just throw it in our mesh breathable Sky-haven Throw Bag for short or long term storage.
- Can I machine wash my Travel Sloodie after messy travel?
Yes, it is machine washable. We decided not to use memory foam for our pillows for this specific reason, because it is so dense, memory foam takes much longer to dry, is hotter than traditional foam and holds sweat in. Travel pillows that use memory foam cushions can’t be machine washed, and that makes no sense to
us. When you travel, you are seeing the world, and naturally… things you wear and use often will get messy. Trust us, you want to be able to machine wash the thing you sleep with and put your head on. However, we do suggest air drying our pillows to increase longevity of your foam cushions, since it is still foam and it can still slowly deteriorate with over washing/drying
