Is this pillow worth a buy? We will discuss below.
Having a good sleep at night, energy-replenishing power nap at work or just a few minutes of doze in the commute can be very helpful for the next few hours of your workplace productivity. With that, we human average took one-third of our life sleeping. Sleeping is so important to reload your bullet/energy for the next day. Without enough sleep, your mental and physical state will perish in a matter of hours.
With that, a good pillow can’t be neglected. A premium-grad pillow provides a soft and comfortable surface for your head to rest on. However, not all the pillow in the market gives you the quality, affordable price, coziness, and versatility in one. Regardless of so many kinds of the pillow in the market, very few of them are solving your neck problem and comfortable to use at the same time.
For example, the existing solution of 3 in 1 pillow in the market such as this one I found on Amazon is indeed low in price but the comfortability is compromised.
That’s when Banale pillow comes in.
Banale is a new Italian startup founded in 2014 and since then has created two successful campaigns on Kickstarter (now on Indiegogo). Previously, they have created POLO toothbrush and Silver Mask. Now they are coming back with their latest product, the Banale pillow, a memory foam 3 in 1 versatile pillow for travel.
Review and Discussion — Is this product worth your money?
While there is a new pillow-jacket convertible coming out recently, do you really need this hassle?
The Banale pillow is a versatile travel pillow designed for your daily commute and traveling use. It is made of super soft and comfy untouched memory foam. The memory foam is a higher density low-resilience polyurethane that is softer than a normal pillow and is able to mold perfectly to your head shape. What good it brings is to provide an even weight distribution and induce a better sleep experience.
For versatility, the Banale pillow can be folded up into a neck pillow. It is useful for those who happen to sleep a lot in the car, office, bus, train or plane. No more neck pain, but a better and recharging nap. There is a side pocket to keep your cell phone or wallet with ease, in front of it. there is also a headphone port for music fanatics. On the other side of the pad, it comes with a thoughtful blanket catcher.
Double Pillow and Pillow Topper
Banale Pillow is compactly designed to transform to 3 other uses.
If you think one Banale is too thin for you, fold it up into a double pillow for a short lunch-break napping. Or open it flat to wear it on your hotel pillow for added comfort. For any outdoor activity, you can easily transform it into a small water-resistant pack with the provided cover pouch. The pouch is water and dirt resistant with a sleek and modern design. The side of the pouch comes with an elastic strap and a hook for conveniently attaching to the backpack or luggage. The cover is also removable and washable.
