I have not tested it on an airplane but at home I have and it definitely appear that it will work, which is awesome. The only teeny wish I have it that it would come with a small soft fabric carry case that could be hooked to the outside of your roll-a-board. Although admittedly I was able to squeeze it into my computer brief which is pretty full. Accessing it after in my seat my be quite challenging. But looks like this is going to work. Yahoo. - John
Just What I Was Looking For!
This is really the perfect design for a travel "pillow", and is everything I was looking for. It holds up the head in a sensible position, sets up and disassembles in a flash, doesn't need inflating or deflating (so you don't risk having it suffer a puncture while traveling), and isn't bulky or unwieldy. I've just received it, so I have yet to travel with it, but just from testing it at home I can tell that it'll be perfect. Some time ago I had actually tried to cobble together something that functioned as this does, except it looked awful, was fussy, and I misplaced one of the parts while in an airport. Kip-Kit is 1,000 percent better than anything I had cobbled together, sturdy, very comfortable and easy to use. I could not be happier with it, and finally am looking forward to getting improved sleep on my next plane trip!
A Very Clever Gadget
I bought this for my disabled husband who is wheelchair bound. When his neck gets weak and his head drops down, it makes going out very difficult, we used the KipKit the other day and it kept his head up all the time we were shopping, this made the trip much more comfortable and easier, for all of us. So it’s got another useful function, well done whoever invented it!
Super succour for slow sojourns
This device is a boon for anyone with a long neck on long journeys. Really helped with my tired nodding. Sadly my adam's apple prevented me from breathing whilst using it but that's my issue not the devices.
Not as comfortable as I would have thought and a bit fussy to set up Might be good on a long journey
