Travel Pillow Scores Media Attention

Cabeau Evolution S3
Say goodbye to neck pain and fall asleep and stay asleep with Cabeau’s Evolution S3 Neck Pillow featuring a patented Seat Strap System.

Cabeau’s Evolution S3® Neck Pillow received lots of media love recently after receiving top recognition in an April 29, 2021 CNN Underscored feature article that reviewed travel pillows. The CNN feed was subsequently picked up by other media, further spreading the word about Cabeau’s neck pillow with an innovative Seat Strap System to eliminate head drop, neck strain and the instinctive “whiplash” response to reopen obstructed airways. In its roundup featuring 10 of the most popular and highest-rated travel pillows on the market, CNN Underscored ranked the Evolution S3 as the best travel pillow overall, noting that the pillow’s “memory foam manages to be soft, springy and supportive all at once; it’s firm enough that it kept our head from slouching too far to the side but not so firm that it dug into our cheeks and ears.” See additional features of this travel pillow here.
