What's 'tog' in Spanish?

Some recent moments which gave me pleasure:

Cycling full pelt down Calle Marina, trees dropping golden leaves all around me.

Trying to explain the duvet tog system to a very patient shop assistant in my local bedding emporium. He didn't know what I was talking about. Came away feeling rather foreign but touched by his feigned interest.

The busy Saturday morning market in my barrio: though it's not far from the centre of Barcelona, I feel like I'm in a completely different place, a town in itself.
