it is probably a better travel pillow than a deep sleep pillow as it is a little small. It also sounds like crunching snow when you are moving it around which I find funny. I imagine that if the person who I am giving it to doesn't like it as a pillow they can use it as a lower back support on a chair.
Not similar to the picture, but I have not tested it yet. So maybe it is a good! It feels nice!
