Cocoon Travelsheets

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:

Product Details

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.

  • Size: 220 x 85 cm
  • Weight : 550g
  • Size: Packs smaller than a Nalgene water bottle!

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.

Pro Tip:

Hang the TravelSheet during the day, keeps the creepy-crawlies away and airs it out.

Bottom Line

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.

Some, but not all, of the products reviewed are provided either free or at a discount.  All reviews contain our honest views and opinions.

As he puts it: "experiencing the world, its people, and their cultures is something that leaves me in awe everywhere I go. I have climbed to the peaks of the Andes to see Machu Picchu, delved into the depths of the Great Pyramid of Giza, prayed with Buddhist monks at Angkor Wat, and witnessed the roars of Spider Monkeys as the sun rose over the Mayan pyramids at Tikal. For me, experiential travel is a way of life – delving into another culture, a passion." MacKenzie is an avid SCUBA diver, having dived in 6 countries on 3 continents.
