Your 0.0 Luxury Item
I have never had that happen- I guess I have been lucky. I have also stuffed the Platy in a clothes bag and then added clothes for more head comfort.

Your 0.0 Luxury Item
2L Platypus used as a pillow. The shape of the bladder filled with H2O fits perfect under the head. Plus you can get a drink in the middle of the night. -Jay
