The 'NapScarf' Could Be The Best Thing To Happen To Napping Since Beds

This Could Be The Best Thing To Happen To Napping Since Beds

It's rare to find a travel gadget that's actually worth purchasing.

Behold: the Trtl Nap Scarf, an in-flight napping device that looks like it -- gasp! -- actually works.

Fasten the soft scarf around your neck, the company says, and its sturdy inner arch cradles your head as you sleep, eliminating that annoying rolling-around, falling-down pattern that so often jolts you awake. Bonus: It doesn't take up a ton of room in your carry-on, like other cumbersome neck pillows.

Mmm, sweet sleepy bliss.

There's no shortage of products that aim to streamline on-the-go sleeping. The Napwrap holds your arms together while you nap in your seat, and this blow-up scarf offers a chic-looking travel pillow disguised as a fashion statement. Then there's the Ostrich Pillow, which is just a ridiculous attempt at turning any and all surfaces into your own personal (and public) bed.

NapScarf is pretty much the most practical nap gadget we've seen so far. It retails for about $30 online and ships worldwide. Bring it on a plane, train or car ride, or cart to the office for a quick pick-me-up nap at your desk.

Nap on, folks.
