What a difference a really good nights sleep can make - you feel better and will get more from those precious days in the great outdoors. With this in mind, we thought we would share "three of the best" from Cocoon's extensive range of sleep and travel equipment.

  • Comes supplied with a waterproof stuff sac, sewn onto the liner at chest height - perfect for holding a light or watch during the night.
  • Loops on the hood and foot end can be used to hang the liner up, its black colour promotes fast drying in the sun.

Best for Travel : Cocoon Insect Shield Silk Travel Sheets

Travel to exotic places isn't always glamorous. Hot humid nights plagued by creepy crawlies can really spoil the experience. When it gets really warm, natural silk is still the most comfortable and breathable fabric to sleep in. If it's really tropical and no sleeping bag is required, then a square cut travel sheet gives you extra wiggle room at the foot.

Cocoon has combined it's beautiful silk travel sheets with Insect Shield to give long lasting, effective insect protection.

Tightly bonded onto the silk fabric, Insect Shield is near your skin for best protection, but not on it like a greasy spray. Derived from Chrysanthemum flowers, Insect Shield is a natural formulation that is invisible, odourless and does not change the feel of the fabric.

It looks like it's what Cocoon claims, but it's just an astronomically high number to me.

Are Cocoon aware of how elephants are 'broken-in' by humans to enable humans to be able to ride them?

They are really naive to show images of animal cruelty like that, I wouldn't buy any of their products having seen it. UKC should seriously consider refusing to publish such photos and should feedback this to Cocoon...

And a spurious degree of specificity!

Yes, the elephant's spirits are broken by harsh treatment until they eventually give up. We don't know what it is which we don't know, though, so long as Cocoon learn about how elephants are treated and use that knowledge when choosing pictures that's good enough for me.
