Slumber Soundly In Vermin-Infested Hotels With This Bed Bug Sleeping Cocoon

Refusing to let the bed bugs bite.

Refusing to let the bed bugs bite.

Most of us are about a kajillion percent sure, or we should be, that the pillow where we lay our heads each night isn’t crawling with vermin. But what if Yelp fails you, and you end up at a hotel where things might be a bit dicey? Perhaps you just don’t trust the look of that roadside flophouse or maybe you’re paranoid — in either case, SkyMall has just the thing for you.

The Bed Bug Sleeping Cocoon is exactly what it sounds like and promises a night of worry-free rest (unless not being able to use your hands worries you). And hey, you can even “breathe naturally”! Whew:

This portable sleeping cocoon is 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.

We know plenty of people in big cities who would probably resort to sleeping in one of these things instead of going to the trouble of throwing out/washing everything inside an infested apartment and calling exterminators. At least temporarily.

As always, we like to give credit where credit is due, so thanks to Adrian Grenier, aka That Handsome Guy With The Very Blue Eyes From Entourage Who Let Me Take A Picture With Him Once and his fine Instagram investigatory work.

Sleep tight, everyone. Don’t let the bed bugs bite.
