Quality is good, shipping was fast. Fills the gap in my station wagon between the folded down rear seats and the backs of the front seats for when I sleep in the back. :D

Interesting. How easy is it to rig up?

Hi NNW,

One strap over each headrest and one around each seat . Two minutes to set up?
Folds up into a square with about 400mm sides, ~40mm high.

Thanks. Tempting. Although I now have an eight inch slab of foam for car sleeping, but it's worth a dollar or two to have another option.

FWIW, I use another option. A scrap piece of 5 ply with a hole drilled near each of 2 adjacent corners, and cord put through each hole and knotted. Cord goes over the front seat, ply fills the gap. Not my idea, but happy that it works. Not waterproof, but perhaps little stronger than the dog car bridge. I could always paint it or varnish it if I could be bothered.
