The Legwear4Men 240 Body Cocoon is simply a 6ft nylon/elastane tube, closed at one end, of 30 denier microfibre fabric, comprising 83% nylon, 17% elastane, such as is used in the production of tights and hosiery. This unusual product is very popular in the Far East, and has a number of possible uses; as it is big enough for two people, we will leave most of them to your imagination! Or it can simply be used to sleep in, in which case it offers a remarkable sensation for a good night's sleep; it is also ideal for camping use, as a sleeping-bag liner - it offers climate control without bulk.
Obviously not a gender-specific product, it offers an unusual experience for one (or two) people. We were sceptical, until we tried them out; they are awesome!
