Where the down version of Cocoon’s travel pillow scores on light weight and softness, the synthetic version offers a firmer, more supportive feel. It’s small enough to fit inside a mummy bag hood and quite comfortable, no doubling over for support necessary. Also available in medium and large.


The synthetic version isn’t as compressible as the down and is a bit heavier for the same full size. Like with the down, the nylon covering can be a little noisy against hair, but you can add Cocoon's optional microfleece or silk/cotton pillowcases.
