CORI TRAVELLER Pillow

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2017-07-10

Rest up between destinations when you have the CORI TRAVELLER Modular Travel Pillow. Unlike other pillows, this one is optimized just for your travels. The CORI TRAVELLER Pillow includes Bobby (the short cushion), Leonard (the tall cushion), and the Couch (the holding strap). With all of these elements, you can customize the pillow to suit your needs. Both Leonard and Bobby attach effortlessly to the Couch and remain securely in place. When the cushions are in place, you simply wrap the Couch around your neck and secure. The CORI TRAVELLER Pillow allows you to sleep on the train, plane, or even at your desk. This innovative pillow also suits your travel needs. When it’s not in use, simply roll it up and clip it to your gear. The rolled design measures just 12cm in diameter making it the perfect combination of comfort, support, and compact size for all of your travels.

Hello, received CORI. Unfortunately Velcro don’t keep together ends of pillow. Seams that Velcro was sewn in wrong direction. After small mahesh movement it unlock and open. Only carabiner is usable, but not pillow. CORI not for travelers :(

Not to mention we read a lot in bed and we find this gives our neck support while we are engrossed in a enthralling book
Cori not just for travel - it's fab

Thanks Cori for creating such a super travel pillow I received my 4 pillows nearly 3 weeks ago! We were super excited to open up the pack it was like Christmas...my children and I followed the easy to follow instructions and then aaahhh we wore Cori all day it's cosy smooth fabric is v soothing and give fab neck support. It also kept us warm in the frosty weather I wear it even when I'm out and about
I'm wearing it while driving, traveling on a long train commute to London and also can't wait to use on my long haul flights !!
Can't wait to other products from cool Cori
Well done to all the team and backers we did it!!

@JohnDotCom, I am guessing you are located in the US. Sorry, but now you know how international backers feel about US-centric shipping, when for some projects they see free shipping to the US and ridiculous shipping for international (non-US) destinations. To add insult to injury, it is sometimes for rather large and bulky items. It is just the vagaries of logistics. I have seen HK backers cry foul when they are charged for something that is shipped across from China perhaps 200 km away when US backers have shipping gratis. Yes, many a time, I have decried that creators may be making undue amounts from international backers due to exorbitant shipping or such international shipping fees are probably funding the US deliveries. However, no creator is going to come out and admit that.

Got my Cori yesterday. This provides the firmest support, that's also very comfortable, out of all the neck pillows I've tried.

thanks for the clarification! i appreciate the updated design - very happy with the product! keep up the good work!

@Roger Kwan Hi Roger! Sharp eye you have there ;). After a few our prototypes, we made a minor design change tho exclude the button slit. We found the improved design without the button slits to be MUCH easier to roll & hook. The button can be easily hooked with the elastic strap on the end. Rest assured, you did not receive a defective product, only an improved one. Thanks for raising this up and enjoy your product!

@Valentin The instructions for the most commonly used configuration can be found both on the box and online via the QR code. We encourage you to play around and discover your favourite position for relaxing as well! As for the velcro, let us know when you do try again later, and if you would like, share pictures, or a video with us is you are still having issues. Enjoy your product!

Hello, I received my 2 orders this week. It is a great idea and I am looking forward to using it on my subway commute. Question about the elastic bands to button closure system. All the bands on my cori are missing the button slits. I see that you have it on one of the pictures, but mine are missing completely. Did I received two defected ones? Please advise.

Review from Kickstarter
Just received my two coris and they look and feel very nice. I'm still trying to find my configuration but I'm having issues with the "velcro" patch to close the cori. It isn't really providing much hold and it only needs a little "pull" to open. I'll try some more later.

Just received mine in Singapore. Both my wife (small build) and myself (big fatass) had tried it, the support is brilliant! Totally worth backing this project :)

I received the CORI today in Thailand. It is a very attractive travel pillow made of very soft material. I have backed a couple of travel pillows and really like the comfort and versatility of the CORI travel pillow. The quality is much much better than the Ostrich pillow which I also backed.
KUDOS!

Hi @JohnDotCom, Wow! I do apologize we were perceived in this manner that you described. While we did feel wronged, we recognize that this is the goodness of kickstarter, where we received both ends of amazing positive engagement as well as strong pointers which teach us how to be better as we move forward. Are we learning? Absolutely! Is it easy to get it all well-covered in our first kickstarter campaign? Absolutely not! Are we going to be demoralized by whatever reasons or feedback? Absolutely not! So @JohnDotCom, what we learn from all the continuous feedback is making us even more committed to improve as we move along, and we take this chance to thank you too.

Review from Kickstarter
The first three comments in this forum were from Superbackers, telling you that your shipping costs were too high... (one, calling them a suicide). I looked further into this and have discovered some disturbing facts. There is an unusual mix of supporters ("New" versus "Returning") almost the reverse of what is normal. There is a very high imbalance of Singaporeans backing this, versus the whole rest of the world... 63% Singaporean backers and only 12% USA, and 1% UK, for example. I think it is fine for locals to support locals, because local shipping is cheaper. But it is not fine when someone gets the idea that they can abuse non-locals (because they will never know they were abused, in a system where you only know your individual shipping cost, and you believe the creator, when you are told it is high, but fair for all. If you are from the rest of the world and you think your shipping cost is ridiculously high, it is! And further, if you knew the unfairly low price Singaporean's were paying; you would withdraw your backing and wait till this was available at retail, closer to you. I raised this issue without pointing a finger at the creator, a week ago. Looking at the whole comment section, there was much discussion implying that the shipping was a big burden for the young company and the implication that this was studied and this was a high shipping cost, but it was fair and equitable for all. The statistics say it is not.

Hello@Johndotcom,
As someone who seems to know quite a bit what goes on behind the scenes of a Kickstarter campaign, you can understand our troubles with managing costs. It is common knowledge that Creators hardly turn a profit from their projects, and Kickstarter is essentially a marketing tool to build a community around your product. With that being said, for a small start-up without many resources, it is unavoidable to run into high logistics costs. We are doing our best to absorb some of the shipping costs, but it is extremely difficult to gauge what type of costs we will be fronting at the end of the project. The shipping cost was calculated to be as safe as possible when it comes to getting the CORI TRAVELLER Pillow into all of our supporter’s hands. We addressed Jarrence via private message because we felt that his concern might have been personal. We have nothing to hide in terms of our materials! The pillow covers can be machine washed and dried & the strap can be handwashed. Our team is learning quite a bit along the way, and helpful comments like yours really do benefit us in the long run. Thanks again for voicing your concerns! Phyllis

Actually... I don't blame the Creator, so much, as the Kickstarter Marketing and Communications Consultants, and other opportunists like the Logistics Specialists, and the KickBack schemes which are taking advantage of both Backers and Creators in today's Kickstarter campaigns.

Review from Kickstarter
Two things about this latest Kickstarter trend, are annoying... 1. Using the shipping fee, to make a profit (if you are not doing this, you are being ripped off)
2. When someone asks a good question, and the creator decides to answer via email Otherwise this is a world class idea... thanks, but canceling my pledge...
I'll wait for the free "Next Day" Amazon Prime Shipping, without the risk!

Review from Kickstarter
Hello @Helena & @Shabaz Please understand this is our first Kickstarter project, and we are determined to get it RIGHT. Many projects struggle with logistics, which is why we have chosen a logistics partner that is more reliable (albeit slightly pricier). We calculated our shipping costs based on wanting all of our packages to be traceable and go through shipping carriers with a good reputation. Hope this helps ease both of your concerns but regardless, Thank you both for your support!
Helena
Review from Kickstarter
Shipping costs are a suicide. Omg.

Review from Kickstarter
Useful, but 39 + 60 (shipping) + 45 (customs & taxes) = ?
Even if the package is DDP, it is marginally above future MSRP.

Review from Kickstarter
HI @SK, We took many things into consideration when we decided on our shipping costs. There have been too many nightmare stories of campaigns that were unable to cope with logistics. Whether it was a miscalculation of costs, or using shady shipping agents whose packages disappeared without a trace, we want to make sure that will NEVER happen to us.
We have selected logistics partners that work with some biggest names in the industry, meaning we might have to pay a little bit more. We want to get your CORI TRAVELLER Pillow to you as fast as possible, but also be able to trace its journey to your doorstep. Hope this helps :)
SK
Review from Kickstarter
International shipping costs are high. The shipping cost needs to be re-considered. You'll lose a lot of potential backers this way. I'm sure you would get more backers if the shipping was more reasonable.
