The SKWOOSH™ Travel cushionDo the new too-thin padded economy class seats on airplanes hurt your butt? They do for me especially when I’m sitting in an exit row and flying across the country. I usually end up sitting on my sweatshirt to get some relief but this new gel-filled travel cushion ($29.99) looks enticing since it claims to relieve pressure on your travel-weary posterior. The only thing that’s holding me back is that it’s one more thing I have to carry.

    At 8 oz. the Travel cushion by Skwoosh will not be a heavy load to carry. I use the Pro Traveler with Air-Flo3D breathable fabric – it has saved my butt on many trips! It is a great seat plus it has handles for your to carry it!

    Enjoy some additional comfort.

    Since it is a gel seat is it allowed to go through the TSA screening?

      From the PR person: SKWOOSH™ Travel Cushions have flown thousands of miles (both domestically and internationally) without any reported issues during security screening. Our patented, medically proven TekPad® gel is a lightweight, temperature stable, non-toxic composite.

    If it’s filled with gel, doesn’t that eliminate carrying it on in your carry on baggage? I could see someone getting cranky with that…..

    It really did make a difference to me, especially on long flights. However, it has one,crucial design fault; it’s nondescript color scheme tends to make it blend in with airplane seats. On a rigorous tour of the US a year ago (18 flights in 18 days) I nearly left it behind several times. I succeeded in losing it on the final leg of my journey (I guess I was anxious to get off the plane and go home).

    If the manufacturers would stitch a day-glo ribbon around it’s edge the problem would be solved. I can’t help but wonder if they have any motivation to do so since lost ones might lead to more sales. More visible, but slightly less durable are the Therm-a-Rest seats. This is the one I purchased http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001QWFE66/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00
