Slanket vs. Snuggie

So my Facebook status of wanting a big blankie, a mug of something and the TV prompted blog-pal Sophie to suggest a Snuggie. "Well, Hells bells!" I gasped. Seems ol' Snuggie has taken the idea of the Slanket (something that has been on my wish list for ages due to it's $40+ price tag) and slashed the price in half. What?! Yeah, I know. Awesome.
Except for one thing. While the Snuggie site does boast a charming video, it just cannot compare to the amazing descriptions of color found on the Slanket site. Who wrote these? Where are they now? Can I buy them a cup of coffee while they sit toasty under a SlanketSnuggie?

Since I can't put the whole page here, I'll tease you with one: the Castlerock grey:
"The high intensity discharge lights washed the steel vault in an antiseptic glow. Cold gray walls as thick as the armor of a battleship. Each man had his own reason for being there, that night. Yet they all shared one common interest. When the last seal on the door had been cracked, their treasure was revealed, The Slanket, in Castlerock Grey."

Check them all out here. And might I suggest that such an item would make a great gift this holiday season.

FINALLY some VALIDATION and LOVE for the Snuggie! So many have mocked me...

"Slanket" sounds like a name for a girl you would give you a social disease. It does not inspire snuggling.

I have the honour of having the first Slanket in Europe and it is in Castlerock Grey. It utterly rules and makes the winter so much more bearable. Now all you need is a Selk Bag...

Our Castlerock Grey slanket reigns supreme on the couch. I wouldn't touch a "Snuggie" with a 10 foot enema nozzle.

Blogger Steve said... is selling slankets for $29 + S/H. The debates online seem to favor it despite the higher price point. And, allegedly, the snuggie website won't tell you that they are sold out until you order them and notice it will arrive in the new year.

Don't buy snuggie. Terrible customer service. Still waiting on mine. Search "Snuggie scam" on the internet before you buy. Oh yeah, after you purchase, companies associated with them will call your cell phone daily saying you can get a free gift card for gas. Like anything is free.

it's too bad the Snuggie has that drafty, hospital gown thing going for it... it would be better if it wrapped around all the way
