I purchased this because I never liked sleeping in strange beds while traveling. I decided to try it out at home first before I actually took it on the road. I washed it before using it and it came out of the dryer looking wonderful. It is well made, soft and comfortable and so compact that packing it away in a suitcase will be easy. As one reviewer mentioned it is a bit of challenge to crawl in to it but I think the sack design is necessary to offer the most protection. I'm glad I found this and look forward to using it again and again and again.
