The Sleeper Scarf
Neck pillows are really helpful for long flights or when you are the passenger on a long car trip. Sleeping sitting up is hardly comfortable on the neck. Yet, neck pillows are really cumbersome to drag along, especially when traveling on a plane. The Sleeper Scarf solves two problems; first, it’s a scarf that can keep you warm, especially on those chilly flights, and, second, there is a hidden inflatable neck pillow right inside the scarf.
When you need a little neck support, simply blow it up and, voila, instant support. Even better, if you don’t need the neck pillow, it can be removed, and the scarf can be worn without it.
The Red Eye Wrap
Despite being more or a wrap cardigan than a scarf, it’s still worth mentioning the Red Eye Wrap because it is perfect for travel. The cabins of most planes are usually quite bright, making catching a few winks of sleep nearly impossible. However, the Red Eye Wrap solves this with a sleeping mask built right in. What also makes it perfect for travel are the built-in zipper pockets where a passport and other important travel documents can be stored along with thumbholes at the cuffs for extra warmth.

For one, it keeps your important documents, like your passport, ID, credit cards, and more, safe and close to your body.
