I too have used FliteMate earplugs and found them to be OK, but very difficult to insert and keep in. Maybe its because Im a woman and have girly ear canals? I simply couldnt manoeuvre them into the correct position and spent the whole flight (8 hours), fiddling around trying to get the things to stay in. So before my next flight, I bought some Macks Pillow Soft silicone earplugs from snorestore.co.uk which moulded themselves perfectly to my lugs AND stayed there. I had no ear pain at all on take-off and landing. I had a cold at the time so thought that was pretty impressive.
I totally agree with chrismoler. I got my first pair of these plugs from garden.co.uk website. They were £6.49 and apparently are reusable for years. I used them on a flight to Vancouver and my ears didn't get any pain at all. I usually suffer from very bad ear ache but not this time. I woudn't dream of flying without them now. My company now buys them in for our employees that fly a lot (I think this is because they reduce jet-lag, therefore we can work more!) I was surprised, however to notice that Boots or Lloyds pharmacies don't stock them yet. I think we should go to every Boots store in the UK and tell them how bloody good these earplugs are!! I leant my pair of average size FliteMate to my brother who does a lot of climbing (don't worry they are washable!). He said that they stopped his ears popping during this too. On the packaging it states a whole range of things you can use these things for. Climbing, hiking, flying, skiing .... The one other thing that I noticed about these earplugs is how comfortable they are. The are breathable apparently which means they don't become stuffy I guess. I will finish this short review (how much can you say about earplugs!) by suggesting that we all bug our local pharmacies to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and buy some! As I say, the only place I've seen them is on garden.co.uk website.
This is the gretest thing I have ever discovered! I always suffer from bad ears when I fly and in the past it has stopped me going on long haul flights. I got these earplugs from the Garden Pharmacy (Covent Garden) and they are amazing. I think they equalise pressure or something, but they certainly work. I've used my pair on 2 flights now, and apparently they are reusable for years. I put them in my ears before take-off and there were absolutly no problems, no pain, no discomfort. They also act as normal earplugs, so they make the flight quieter too, but you can still hear the person next to you talking. I would certainly recommend these earplugs to anyone that flies! They only cost about £6 and they last for ages. I think you can get them at most pharmacies and travel shops. It says on their website that if your pharmacy doesn't stock them, tell them to e-mail the company and they'll send them within a week. To summarise... a brilliant product which has changed my life!
