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: […]
There are definite benefits to the whole work from home thing. The commute is a breeze. The dress code is supremely casual. And your boss has to work a lot harder to actually find you. Despite the joys, there are still some clear downsides to the whole home office thing as well. Job focus can […]
If you’re routinely prone to being stressed out, hurried or generally made out-of-sorts by the hectic pace of the world and life changes, then…yikes. We don’t envy what you must be going through these days. Right about now, even the most zen and centered among us are bound to be feeling some level of anxiety […]
So…exactly how many times a day are you singing Happy Birthday to your sink? Unless you’re among the most germaphobic among us, it’s unlikely you ever thought the simple act of handwashing would start to take on such a central role in our daily lives. Of course, with all the touching and such, bar soap […]
