What do you guys use for long flights to ease the ache in the butt from poorly padded airline seats? I've sat on the horseshoe neck things, doubled blankets, walked around....I've seen some things advertised on Magellan that are designed to ease the pressure, but they are $200+
What do you use?

I injured my tailbone over a year ago and it occassionally still hurts...especially on long plane rides or when i'm getting my hair done.

I've purchased a seat cushion as simple as the ones used on patio furniture, and it works like a charm. It can be a pain to travel with it, but it's really worth saving the pain on my tail bone!
