A bed bug thwarting ‘Sleep Cocoon’?
SkyMall — everyone’s favorite catalog for off-the-beaten-path gadgets and comfort items — now includes a ridiculous, albeit fitting, bed bug product. Sandwiched in the pages somewhere between the Toilet Paper iPod Holder and BigFoot Garden Yeti Sculpture readers will find The Traveler’s Bed Bug Thwarting Sleeping Cocoon. The product is described as “a portable sleeping cocoon made from a specially woven fabric that is impervious to bed bugs. Its tightly wound polyester threads are only 1-micron apart to prevent 100% of bed bugs from penetrating the fabric. The durable polyester threads are impervious to bed bugs’ teeth yet the fabric remains soft, pliable, and breathable for optimal sleeping comfort in a hotel bed. The hooded top protects your head and neck yet allows you to breathe naturally, and the entire unit fits in the included tote for ease of travel.” — Brad Harbison
