We Drifters Travel and Camping Pyjamas Review

We Drifters are a small local business from the UK, founded by travel lover Naudia Salmon after a trip around South East Asia. 

I love supporting small businesses and buying local where possible, so when We Drifters got in touch to tell me about their amazing sleepwear, I was all ears. 

Anti-Insect Pyjamas for Camping and Adventures

I’ve been trying out my Anti-Insect Sleepwear set from We Drifters for a couple of weeks now, and I love them! 

Although I have to confess, at first I wasn’t sure I was going to like them. These camping pyjamas are intentionally gender-neutral, so grey is the only option at the moment. They look smart, but not exactly fun – they’re designed for comfort and practicality, not to be cute. This isn’t necessarily a negative for most people, but as someone who’s still wearing Harry Potter PJ’s well into my thirties, I wasn’t expecting to love these quite so much!

It only took putting them on to change my mind. Even if they didn’t have an impressive list of clever tech built into them, these pyjamas are so soft and cosy! This is proper sleep and loungewear; made from a soft, stretchy bamboo fabric that’s perfect for relaxing in. 

I also really, really love the thumbholes in the sleeves, which mean you can keep your wrists covered for extra cosiness! It’s a small thing, but really makes a difference!

The sleepwear sets also come with socks and optional stirrups, which you can use to keep your ankles and feet covered. The socks are thin and soft, and I think they’d be useful for staying warm on cold nights.

The Tech

According to the We Drifters website, this is everything that their clever sleepwear can do:

Our super soft and breathable bamboo is lightweight and impregnated with HHL Technology Vital Protection – a revolutionary insect protection that is OEKO-TEX® approved. It is 90% effective against many biting insects, including mosquitoes, midges, ticks, bed bugs, sand flies and fleas.

  • Anti-insect
  • Breathable
  • Sweat-wicking
  • Odour resistant
  • Temperature control
  • Lightweight
  • Anti-static
  • Includes socks and 2-in-1 pillowcase & storage bag
  • Includes stirrups on trousers and thumb holes on top
  • Option to attach top and bottom together to form a onesie
  • Zipped pockets

Why These Pyjamas are so Awesome for Travel

It’s winter here in England, so I’ve not been able to test out just how effective the anti-insect tech is yet. But We Drifters already have quite a lot of verified reviews saying that it really works! I’ll be using these pyjamas every time I go camping, so I’ll update this post once I’ve had some more experience. 

If they work even half as well as promised, though, they’ll be a worthy investment. Bug bites are one of the most irritating downsides to travel, especially in tropical climates and adventures like camping. Wearing sleepwear that actively keeps them off can only be a win!

For me, the best thing about these pyjamas is the temperature control. I spent a few hours wearing them on the Common to get the photos for this post (enjoying lots of funny looks from dog walkers), on a pretty cold November afternoon. And they genuinely kept me warm – surprisingly so! On a chilly night in a tent, they’d be a godsend.

But when I wear them around the house or in bed, they’re also not too warm. These are the Goldilocks of PJs – juuuust right! Plus the fabric is breathable and sweat-wicking – so they’d be great on hot nights. 

Basically, these are a surprisingly clever pair of pyjamas! Warm when you need them to be, cool when you don’t, and cosy ALL the time. What more could you possibly want?!

  1. We were planning on going to see family in Spain in the Summer. If we’re able to by then, as part of our trip we’ll be hiking in the mountains and camping out for a few days. These would be perfect. Thanks for this giveaway. Hope you have a lovely Christmas x

  2. I’m actually very happy that these are grey, I have a lot of grey clothes! It’s a much better neutral colour than beige! ;-) My main concern would be the length, as I’m only 5’1. How did you find the length? They do look super comfy though and I love that they’re anti-insect, because mosquitoes love me – especially when I’m asleep at night it seems!

    1. I agree, I think the grey is really nice and smart. They told me they’re looking to expand to a range of colours, which is great as I would definitely love a fun pink pair!! I’m 5’4 and got the Medium size, which are a comfy loose fit and about the right length. But I do have to wear the trousers quite high! It’s quite a stretchy fabric so I think the idea is that it would stretch with taller people and fit shorter people too. And the sizes come up big so you could probably go a size smaller and the trousers would be shorter!

  3. Bought a motorhome this year and looking forward to getting away in 2021 – maybe Scotland and ive heard all about the bugs there!

  4. I would love to have an adventure to somewhere different like Pitcairn island or Paraguay but, for now, a bit of camping on the south Devon coast would be a real treat.

  5. I am going to Lefkas to visit my Auntie next year as she is lucky enough to live there. I’d love a pair of these lovely pyjamas to take x

    1. They definitely would!! I bet the temperature control in the fabric would help. The winner has now been announced but if you do want to buy a pair, I have a discount code for 20% off: EMILY20 :)

  6. We’re planning on lots of camping trips next year, particularly around the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District , so these would be absolutely perfect!

    1. Ah they’d be great for chilly nights in Sweden! I hope your daughter gets to go soon :) The winner has now been announced but if you do want to buy a pair, I have a discount code for 20% off: EMILY20

  7. My daughter Holly and I dream of returning to Los Angeles we was fortunate to visit for a few days in 2018 and we barely scratched the surface but we did fall in love with this amazing city.

  8. I am hoping to visit Scotland next year. I have been wanting to go for years and the situation in 2020 has made me realize life is out there, go get it as it does not come to you. I have heard there are bugs and insects aplenty up North so these pj’s will be packed x

    1. Oh definitely, especially with the unpredictable Scottish weather! The winner has now been announced but if you do want to buy a pair, I have a discount code for 20% off: EMILY20 :)
