So far, so good. When removed from the packaging, the Flypal didn’t smell much (not much off gassing). I blew up both sections and put heavy objects on each piece for 3 days to ensure that there were no leaks. None so far. Although I haven’t used them on a plane yet, I’ve used the small section for a foot rest for my office, and have tried using the larger section on my lap for napping. It works well. Since I’m short at 61″ this combination is perfect for me for both purposes. I have two long overseas flights ahead of me and I’m excited to try them in an ‘operational’ setting.
