This self-inflating lumbar back pillow got me through over 24 hours of international travel in coach.
I spent a lot of time in coach over the last week or so. My back can't really take a lot of these shenanigans, but I came prepared. I knew exactly where in my kit the McKenzie AirBack was stowed, so I could grab it as I hit my seat. Helping preserve my lumbar lordosis while I sit in terrible airplane seats is a must.
Depending on your own back you can put a little, or a lot of air into the pillow. I do not inflate it very much, a little goes a long way. Remember, as cabin pressure decreases, your pillow will inflate more! Becareful not to over inflate!
Similarly, I find it easier for stowage to deflate the pillow at the beginning of descent, the lower pressure makes it easier to get the pillow packed tiny at sea-level.
Using this while flying leaves me with less pain radiating into my legs. I purchased a self-inflating when my last OG Airback was lost.

I just came back from Hunan province, the capital of the coronavirus. I’m not feeling too well. Thank you.” The plane made an emergency landing and Philippe was arrested. From Metro UK: […]
For those with a writing flair, the thought of building a career as a professional copywriter should probably have some appeal. Thankfully, it’s also an in-demand job skill with the average copywriter making a healthy $60,000 a year for their efforts. But even if you have a way with words, you still need the industry […]
While we all love our iPhones and iPads, celebrating the releases of their latest and greatest versions, it’s amusing to consider how much we at the same time HATE the main item that keeps these little tech marvels powered up and working. No, Lightning cables don’t exactly inspire feelings of awe and wonder. It’s more […]
