Introducing The Layover Travel Blanket
What is the The Layover?
Let’s face it, traveling is exhausting. You just can’t predict when you’ll need extra comfort. Long uncomfortable flights, napping on the floor during delays, transfers, road trips… how do you stay comfortable?! We set out to take the edge off and make your journey even better.
We included a ton of awesome features to make this blanket perfect to take comfort everywhere you go. See why below.

Wait, why does this blanket make traveling better?
Here’s The Problem: Getting comfortable while traveling or on the go is really tough. You aren’t likely to carry your grandma’s super comfy quilt on a plane unless you want to look like you’re headed for an adult sleepover. Blankets just aren’t packable!
You never know if the plane you are boarding will get drafty, if you will be stuck on a super long layover, or if you’ll end up in a window seat up against the cold wall of a bus. We thought there had to be a much better way.
Here’s The Solution: The Layover will change the way you look at travel blankets forever. We incorporated a ton of neat features to keep you comfortable on the go. Here’s a quick walkthrough:
Space & weight of your luggage on the go is vital.
Attached & Hideaway Stuff Sack
The attached stuff sack packs into a zippered pocket on the side of the blanket to keep it out of the way when using the blanket.
Easy Stuffing w/Patent Pending Stuff Sack
Stuffing into stuff sacks is the worst. To solve this, we added 3” of extra material for easy grip & stuffing.
You can then use the drawstring to quickly cinch down and convert the material down to its most compact size.
The breathable insulation core keeps you feeling just right.
Microfleece Kangaroo Pocket
We’ve lined the inside of the Kangaroo pocket with microfleece for a soft place for your hands.

Snap Blankets Together & Increase Blanket Width
Want a wider blanket size to share with a friend? Compatible snaps line the edge of the blanket to increase width to as many blankets as you want.
Don’t worry, we did the math. It only takes 386,376,478 of our connected blankets to make it to the moon.
Spill Proof/Water Resistant
Anti-Static + Waterproof Coating (do we highlight this a little more?)
Insulation: 40 gr/sq m
Warmth Rating: 60°
