  • realy good idea!

  • or you could, you know, turn up the heating?

  • I agree, the Slanket and Snuggie have been around too long to play to pretend to come up with this idea simultaneously.

    However, where the Slanket and Snuggie are plush emblems of American laziness and sloth, this is something else…and is how it should be presented. You can’t ignore your predecessors without looking ignorant.

  • @pieter. i think that actually here books that they hold look really god, not amazing like Luciano Lucrezi sad for a blanket (its a hard word for blanket, i think), but good. and pieter and nick, first consider hands sweating, before you get sleeve blanket. because if you plan to read “war and peace”, you have to wash blanket every day.

  • “the slanket looks ridiculous, this looks good”. that’s your humble opinion, dude. the slanket “looks” warmer and fulfills its purpose. it doesn’t mystify, as more designers do, its “great idea” and a “perfect form”. in my humble opinion.

  • Pieter – it’s like inventing beautiful hot water. It’s not new as it claims.
