Get amazing sleep on your trip or your money back!
Because you (and us) know the travel part of traveling stinks—the seats hardly recline, the noisy hum of jet engines haunt your ears and the passenger next to you turns on the in-flight entertainment right as you’re trying to get some shuteye. It’s a draining flight that feels like it’ll go on forever. It’s not fun to reach your destination exhausted, so we buckled down to solve this problem for good by creating the ultimate travel pillow
We partnered with lauded design firm IDEO to create it and received a lot of valuable feedback from focus groups made up of flight attendants and frequent travelers to create the ultimate travel companion for you.
Typical neck pillows don’t offer adequate neck support. This results in waking up with aches, strains and a haze of exhaustion that makes you question if you slept at all.
As a result, we based the POD’s neck pillow off of a neck brace, and then dialed it back down a bit for a cushiony, supportive feel for optimal sleep no matter your neck size and shape.
Conde Nast described the POD like being inside a mini sensory deprivation tank. This was the goal. Research has shown that we don’t typically get great sleep when traveling because we’re not in our own space / environment. Makes sense—you probably sleep better in the privacy of your own bedroom (on your Pluto Pillow) than, let’s say, on a massive metal vehicle that hurls through the sky at 550 mph.
With the POD, you get to create your own privacy and capsule with the pillowy hood and built in eye mask. Look, you might look like an astronaut when you’re POD'ed up, but you’ll finally be able to get some sleep.
Typical travel pillows are bulky and cumbersome as they eat up valuable space in your carry-on.
Not so with the POD! We spent a lot of time designing it to be able to be rolled up into a small burrito-shape that also works great as a back cushion for lumbar support or a mini pillow.
The POD only asks for a modest space on or in your luggage. You can either wrap the POD on your luggage handle or loosely around your neck. Lots of ways to save precious travel space!
After conducting a National Sleep Survey of over 2000 U.S. adults we found that 65% of people have difficulty sleeping while traveling by car, train or plane and more than 50% of respondents agreed that their ability to enjoy an adventure was compromised by jet lag and travel fatigue. We knew that after dedicating years on improving the pillow in the bedroom, it was time for us to try our hand at the pillow you take with you on trips – a.k.a. the travel pillow! We were tired of seeing the same horseshoe, U-shaped designs or tacky ones that made you look ridiculous. So, we got to work with one of the best design firms in the world, IDEO and listened to sleep researchers, flight attendants, and travelers to build the ultimate travel pillow. We hope you relax just as much on your journey as you do your destination!

There are multiple ways to use this patent pending design:
1. You can use it as a normal neck pillow with the hood down
2. Pull the hood over for more privacy and pillowy support on the sides of your head
3. Pull the eye mask on for extra privacy and darkness to create your own little sleep capsule
4. Folded up to use as a pillow or back cushion
Glad you asked because YES! A number of our customers have shared that they weren't aware that the suede snaps (yes, real suede!) on the back of the hoodie not only serve as a function to store the POD, but that they also snap onto each other for a tighter, snugger fit (especially if you have a smaller head). This also makes the eye mask cover just the eyes instead of coming down around the face – though, the latter feels incredibly comfy :)
Although the Pluto POD has a lightly padded hoodie and a built-in convertible eye mask, rest assured that it can be pushed back (akin to a conventional hoodie!) so that you can enjoy just the supportive, plushy neck pillow if preferred.
That said, with the hoodie up and in use, our goal was to create a bit more warmth – your own little capsule and cocoon. When designing and developing the product, most travelers we interviewed actually shared that they tend to run cold on flights. "You can always adjust the cool a/c but not warmth," was a common take – so that was something we kept in mind (with the ability to still push the hoodie back for more temperature regulation). As the POD embarks on more adventures, we look forward to continue tweaking our designs.
With free shipping, your Pluto POD will arrive in about 7 business days. If you have a trip coming up before then, we have an expedited shipping option available at checkout. Safe and smooth travels!
The POD is meant to be used and is easy to care for. Everything touching outer surfaces is machine washer friendly. To wash the POD: Carefully unzip the neck support cushion and remove the foam (the foam will disintegrate in the wash!). Machine wash cold on a delicate cycle without other articles to prevent damage. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. When that's done, air dry flat and place the support foam back inside the cover.
We’re proud to offer the same great 125-night risk-free trial and 1 year warranty for the Pluto POD. Please make sure the POD is in its original condition and reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for easy next steps. All PODs are inspected on return.
