          • Hostel Beds

          Comments about Cocoon Insect Shield Safari Silk Rectangular Bag:

          I bought this for two reasons: 1) to use instead of a sleeping bag at pilgrim hostels on the Camino de Santiago in Portugal & Spain and 2) to ward off bed bugs. It suceeded, more or less. It was wonderfully comforting to cover myself in my silk cocoon, and it did protect me (I think!) against bed bugs. I certainly saw some on my trip. Yuck. But I did get bitten, by what and when I am not sure. Just know that this is probably not 100% effective. Unlike what I read in other reviews about sleep sacks, this was sewn well; had ample room to cover a pillow; long enough for me (5'7"); easy enough to stuff back into its sack (but the toggle often fell off). I look forward to using this in Ecuador to see if it wards off mosquitos. I really liked it.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Cocoon Insect Shield Safari Silk Rectangular Bag:

            These are great for traveling through insect-infested areas; we're traveling around Costa Rica and have used these sheets every night. They work great, they're comfortable, and they are pretty odor-resistant: we've found they only need washing about once a month if you're not so hot that you sweat in it every night.

            • Q:

              I am trying to decide between the silk and the coolmax versions of the Insect Shield travel bags.
              Which one is more appropriate for hot climates? Will not be used inside a sleeping bag, used as a stand alone sheet

                A:

                We would suggest a Coolmax liner for a hot, humid climate. It wil work fine as a stand-alone sheet.

            • Q:

              Two questions: 1) can I sleep directly in this bag without a sleeping bag (I want to use it as a travel sheet)and 2)does it come with a pocket for a pillow?

                This item can be used by itself as a travel sheet. It does not have a pocket for a pillow.

            • Q:

              I plan to put my sleeping bag in this to keep the bed bugs out. Do the bugs avoid this material altogether or might they cling to it? I wanted to check before I roll it up each morning.

                This product is covered with a coating of permethrin, and will kill bugs instantly when they touch it.
