With more and more Canadians hitting the road these days, travel continues to be top of mind. And with that comes the rise of many accessories that can help make any road trip or plane ride more comfortable.

The details

This inflatable cube is designed to slide into the footrest area between seat rows, providing a comfortable spot to rest your legs. The footrests are made of soft, eco-friendly PVC that comes with a removable and washable dust cover.

The set includes an inflatable cube with three valves, which lets you choose from three different heights. Once you land, you can deflate the cubes and stash them away in the included carrying cylindrical carrying case that measures just 4" x 4" x 7".

What reviewers have to say

Although this travel pillow has only earned a few dozen reviews, it's become a staple for many travellers. It's earned a 4.1-star average rating, with reviewers calling it a "must have" for long trips — with or without kids.

One person wrote that the footrest was used "for a long [flight] to Europe," and that their "one-year-old slept through the whole trip." Another raved that it transformed their airplane seat in order for "children to lay down on long international flights."

"I am so thankful I bought these!" they added.

While many Amazon shoppers used the adjustable foot rest to provide more room for small children to lay down on plane rides, other say that it also works well in cars.

One person shared that it helped turn their car seat "into a lounger" and "reduced leg pain and cramps by 90%" on road trips.

Despite the positive reviews, some shoppers were disappointed that this inflatable footrest doesn't come with a hand pump. If you'd rather avoid having to inflate it by mouth, then you'll want to plan ahead and invest in a portable pump like this one.

Verdict

If you're headed on vacation any time soon, it may be time to start planning how to make the most of your trip. The Koala Kloud Adjustable Airplane Footrest is an easy addition to your packing list that shoppers say works well for both air and car travel.

You will have to inflate it yourself, but if it provides relief from travel aches and pains, it may be worth the investment.
