This Fully waterproof fleecy covered pillowcase was designed for the Volvo Ocean Race 2005. The brief was to be comfortable, yet be practical onboard a typical, wet, race yacht. Normal pillowcases get wet quite quickly from damp hair and salt water and will never dry out. The Ocean Sleepwear waterproof, microfleece pillowcase combines a waterproof fabric inner with fully taped seams to keep your precious pillow dry, covered by a thin Microfleece outer that gives superb comfort and a cosy place to rest your weary head!
The opening is sealed with a laser cut waterproof zip and is covered by a fleece flap, so as not to compromise the comfort.
If space and weight are at a premium, you can stuff spare clothes such as a fleece or jacket inside the pillowcase to give support knowing they will remain dry no matter what.
Normally polyester pillows would be the only suggestion to carry onboard as they soak up less water than a standard pillow. However now you could (perhaps if space wasn't so precious) indulge in the luxury of a down and feather pillow, without the fear of getting it wet and rendering it useless.
