The Cocoon brand arose as a result of life-long travel experience, starting in 1989 when the founder to be of Design Salt, was almost swept away in a Balinese river while washing a prototype. The need for functional, comfortable, and convenient comfort on the roads less traveled lead to the continued development and perfection of the COCOON TravelSheets, MummyLiners, and sleeping bag brands. The company sells their products all over the world from their small headquarters in Austria, doing business as Design Salt Europe. Now, on to the review:
The TravelSheet line comes in varying sizes, materials, weights, and temperature ratings to allow for customers to best meet their needs. The CoolMax, the most versatile, quickly adapts to changing thermal needs with its patented microencapsulated OUTLAST Thermocules – allowing the liner to absorb, store, and release body heat as needed.

Pros & Cons
The quality of construction is top notch, the polyester material is stretchy and allows for the toss-and-turners among us to not rip the sheet. Strong seems also keep the durability of the product in line with the demands of the adventurous, travel-mined consumer.
Hang the TravelSheet during the day, keeps the creepy-crawlies away and airs it out.
I have used my Cocoon TravelSheet in my adventures across the globe, from dodgy hostels in Cairo to overnight bus rides through the Peruvian Andes (it can get really cold at that altitude!), to crashing on the floor of airport terminals between layovers. The comfort provided by these sheets, in such a small compact package, is unparalleled. I have come across many imitators in my travels, none reaching the comfort and quality standards that the Cocoon TravelSheet provides.
