All you need for a comfortable nap in literally any location is this ordinary-looking sweatshirt and the three seconds it takes to blow up the inflatable pillow hidden inside its hood. Offering warmth, a cozy feel, built-in cushioning and a hood that’s long enough to pull down over your eyes, the Hypnos Hoodie is quick and easy to use and stow away, and super-discreet, so you can surreptitiously catch some shut-eye in the library or on the train without having to pull out an actual pillow.
The inflatable pillow is ergonomically designed to cradle the head against any hard surface, whether it’s a car seat, a wall or a bench. The valve opening is conveniently located just inside the oversized hood with a flap covering, keeping the inflatable inconspicuous. Hidden inside a tailored-fit pocket, the pillow can be removed or inserted at any time.
The hoodie comes in black, white and several shades of gray, in pullover and zip-up styles. There’s also a water-resistant jacket version on the way. If your pillow should pop, replacement inflatables are available. The Hypnos Hoodie successfully raised a round of funding on Kickstarter, and a shop offering a range of options will be opening soon.
