Can you wash the Layover™?
You sure can! The Layover™ is machine washable, and you can tumble dry it on low!
What height does the blanket work for?
If you are over 6'3" - With the blanket snapped around your neck it will be a little tight to use the foot pocket at the same time. You can still use the blanket in every other way. At this time we are working on an option for taller people. Feel free to try it out, as we offer free returns if you aren't pumped.
Lifetime Warranty, really?
We've only selected premium materials so we're so confident in our products. We will replace any Layover™ that suffers from a manufacturing error. If something else happens, feel free to e-mail us at email@example.com and we will review each repair on a case-by-case basis.
We didn't cut any corners with material selection to ensure rips and tears are minimized plus stress points get extra attention. We also designed reinforcements in areas used most. Two examples:
1. Snaps are reinforced with extra material surrounding them to reduce rips
2. Attached stuff sacks can get stress on the connected parts when packing. We added a snap to the piece of material that connects the blanket to the stuff sack. When packing away if the material is getting too much stress, the snap will break loose vs cause threads to take the beating.
Reusability and recyclability
With our Lifetime Warranty, we want to make sure that the blanket, as do all our products, gets years of use. Instead of just throwing away a blanket for a warranty claim we want to closely examine and attempt to repair.
In 2018 we also used only minimal packaging. One cardboard box was designed to serve as packaging and the shipping box (vs a box shipped in a box). We also do not use single use plastic in any packaging. We opted to use tissue paper to protect the product inside. We are now using cassava as a plastic alternative.
The insulation for the Layover is made out of 100% recycled material (plastic bottles in fact). Certified free of harmful chemicals and are safe for human use. Organic certification means that textile and fabric products are grown according to strict guidelines on the use of petroleum based fertilizers, pesticides and synthetic products.
Environmentally friendly factories
With some factories it is a new concept to reduce waste. We are always pushing them to be more conservative with waste. The standard for manufacturing usually uses so much plastic just to ship products from a factory to a warehouse. We take steps along the way to reduce all waste everywhere we can.
Sustainable fulfillment and distribution
We're very close (as friends and physically) to our fulfillment center. Waste when fulfilling thousands of orders at once can get pretty ridiculous. Giant plastic bags are a standard & used to gather all the products together to take to the distribution center. We work with our warehouse and manufacturers to make sure waste is minimized (hopefully to zero!).
- travel blanket
Happy with the blanket warmth but material is too fragile. I wouldn't dare lay this down on the floor because the nylon is delicate and snagged on the zipper when I was converting it into pillow mode. It's also about 8-12 inches too short as I'm 5'10" and I can't snap it around my neck in a prone position. I also agree with other reviews that it should be a tad wider also. Feel free to bounce other ideas off me as I'm a Global Services, Diamond Medallion, Concierge Key traveler and have tried out most travel accessories over the years. Cheers! Ideas for next version: - cut two zippered slits in the blanket so that a person can wear the blanket and still have access to their hands through the slits. - tilt the hand warmer pocket into a slight V shape so that it's more ergonomic for the user to insert their hands - At this price point, use a stronger weave material. Too DELICATE! - Consider adding a zipper instead of snaps along the sides to connect blankets as this more heat efficient and would allow the wider blanket to also be used as a makeshift sleeping bag (zipped into itself) when having to sleep on a dirty airport floor - The side security pocket is too small to be of much use. Please make it bigger.
This is the last travel blanket I will ever need to purchase. I've tried many travel blankets / scarves over the years; Lug, Lululemon, E Marie Travel Blankets, Jersey Travel Blanket and so many more. They all have the same issue, they are too bulky, and aren't easy to wash / dry when you get to where you are going. I ordered two travel blankets from Gravel via Kickstarter. Have ordered more since to give as gifts to our frequent traveler friends. This is the last travel blanket I will ever need to purchase. Compact, easy to wash, quick to dry and can be hooked together to make one giant blanket. Only two things would make this blanket better, maybe for the 2.0 version.... At the bottom of the stuff sack, a handle to make it easier to hold on to the stuff sack when removing the blanket and a place to put the stuff sack after you pull the blanket out. I put mine in the kangaroo pouch (for now). Thank you for truly solving the ever frustrating travel blanket problem. We love our and will continue to gift / recommend to everyone we know. This is the last travel blanket you will ever purchase.
Thank you SO much for your awesome, thoughtful review. We are so glad you love it. We also appreciate the feedback-- we will pass it along to the design team. :)
I just used the blanket on a 17 hour flight from San Francisco to Singapore. The blanket kept me warm without getting hot. The fasteners to keep the top of the blanket around your neck were great as well as the hand and foot pockets. This will definitely go with me on any future trips. Considering purchasing one for my spouse.
Just love my Layover Blanket. Actually had to buy a second one because I gifted mine! Excellent customer service: a little bit of confusion on the second order. Reach out to Brooke: 24 hrs...new blanket on my doorstep! Thanks so much !
