Our responses to travel gear range from we can see it through probably not to oh honey, no. It's a delicate balance. On one hand, who cares what other people think as long as you're comfortable? On the other hand, you are in public and we still have common decency, so there are certain expectations. You wouldn't walk around in torn socks and sandals, just because you like the feel of the wind on your toes.
Our concern here is that the "pool floaties as gloves" look kind of makes you appear like a poorly thought out supervillian. It's like what kids put on their hands before hitting each other and screaming "POW!" Comfortable though it might be, it's one step too cutesy for us.
There are some more pics in the original post so you can judge for yourself. Feel free to sound off in the comments: is the better sleep worth it? Should how you look matter on a travel day, or does how you feel trump everything?
