Our Analysis
Watch the Commercial

We also found brief but useful video reviews at NBC's "Today" show and at WRC (Washington D.C.). Gadling.com's Mike Barish reviews both versions based on his own tests riding in a chilly, air-conditioned car. A critical review at the San Francisco Chronicle is based on the commercial alone, but about 40 readers add comments. The review at a humor blog The Mother Load is also based on the commercial. An article in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution doesn't review the Snazzy Napper, but discusses its development and rise to fame. 

The main drawback noted in reviews is that the Snazzy Napper looks silly and is embarrassing to wear in public. Some reviewers find it claustrophobic, while others say it can make you a target for extra security screenings in airports because your face is hidden. Reviewers also point out that the pockets on the larger version of the Snazzy Napper make your personal items easily accessible for theft. Overall, a regular sleep mask -- plus a blanket if needed -- looks like a much better bet.
