The Reposer is a portable armrest that weighs about the same amount as a paperback book and installs onto the existing armrests to extend them.
From their website:
Without the RePoser, the weight of your arms builds strain in your neck and back and puts pressure on your breathing. By supporting the weight of your arms, the RePoser can help you breathe easier and not have a stiff neck and back when you get to your destination. The RePoser helps you sit back and enjoy the flight!
For $40, you can bring your own armrest on the plane.
The problem is, this tool takes up half of the armrest. And it doesn’t look comfortable to accidentally elbow as the next person over.
I think this product would seem passive-aggressive to the people next to you, plus increase their discomfort level.
All the examples have been people using this from the middle seat. But what if the people on the aisle and window seats were using this? It would be uncomfortable for the person in the middle.
My initial feeling is that using this would be inconsiderate to the people around you, but my opinion could be swayed. What do you think?
