1ST CLASS SLEEPER

Has anyone bought this thing?

The 1st Class Sleeper turns your cramped coach seat into a lap of luxury. Veteran commercial pilot Captain Bob Duncan couldn't sleep in airplane seats on his commutes home, so he invented the ingenious 1st Class Sleeper, an inflatable "bed in the clouds" that's endorsed by chiropractors and orthopedic surgeons. Just place it against the back of your plane seat, inflate with 10-12 quick breaths, then lie back and relax. Your neck, shoulders and spine will be kept in perfect alignment, eliminating stiffness and pain, even on the longest flights, so you'll arrive at your destination perfectly rested! May also be folded in half and used as a lumbar pillow. Rolls up for easy storage in your carry-on bag. Ideal for train, car and tour bus travel, too. Includes drawstring pouch, overhead air adapter hose and illustrated instructions. (12 x 3" folded; 18 oz)

I've looked at their website before, and I highly question its comfort for two reasons:

- It brings your head even closer to the seatback in front.

- Your body is forward, making the seat cushion even shorter. I don't know how the seat can support your thighs.

I don't think I'll feel comfortable.

I've used this for years and love it. It hardly moves you forward and you adjust it according to your body. You dont inflate it fully so you can smoosh it around the way you want depending on how many breaths you put in. It fold up pretty snug so not too much a nuisance to carry.

It may add a certain degree of comfort but I doubt that it "turns your cramped coach seat into a lap of luxury.". Haven't tried it myself, however, so what do I know, right?

Does it give extra legroom?

The reviews on Amazon are mixed. Seems like people love it--or hate it. I'm temped, but for international flights where carry-on is typically weighed, I wouldn't want to add more than a pound. Hmm ... but then again, if it was really comfortable ...

PS. Yes, it DOES provide significant extra legroom--but only if you purchase it along with the optional ticket upgrade to First-Class ;-) hehehe
