* Trailspace Pick for Multi-Functionality *
The beauty of the Wrap-It is its simple, lightweight, multi-functional design. Slide it on the end of your sleeping pad and leave it there. It works as both a pillow sleeve and a storage sack for your pad by simply rolling up the pad inside it and compressing it with the straps. At night simply unroll. The fleece-covered sleeve holds a pillow or extra clothes. Ultimately, it’s an appealingly simple design that’s as comfortable as whatever you use for your pillow stuffing. Also available in a 25-inch version.
Despite the name, it's not really a pillow; the Wrap-It requires a pillow or clothes to provide support. Any pillow or clothes in the sleeve are underneath your sleeping bag, which may not be as comfortable as directly under your head. Also, the Wrap-It can slide several inches off your sleeping pad on the floor of a slippery tent and there’s no way to secure it on.
