The Wearable Blanket, or Snuggie Bathrobe? This is the ultimate question. Read further to get the answer.
Snuggie (R500.00): Don't buy this. Being the laughing stock of the blanket family does not contribute a lot to the consumer value, especially if the product is constructed out of material which feels like the thinnest hospital gown. Not only are the sleeves are uncomfortably small and restrictive, but your feet will also be in a constant struggle to find the cover as the bottom part is too short even for not so tall people. The 5' 10" person still has to bend the knees to keep all the body covered. Bend them! Clearly, it is your body which has to adapt to Snuggie, not another way around.
Snuggie is one of the best static electricity generators of all the blankets, and colours are usually so unnaturally bright that won't feet any interior. Nobody else should buy it.
- At R500.00, it's the cheapest
- Generates a lot of static electricity
- Thin, papery material
- Too short for most people
Wearable Blanket (R 1799.00): This is the one which gives you a freedom to turn when you want to make sure you get the most out of your blanket money. It's 150 by 200cm, so it's long enough to even for tall people and is made out of polyester microfibers, so it's thick and soft but light. Essentially, it's everything the Snuggie is not.
If you ask why a regular blanket won't do, the Wearable Blanket is the answer. It has the sleeves are long and wide enough to keep you warm and allow plenty of space for movement(gaming is the best example). It comes with the zipper to prevent your back from being cold and exposed. It has the most variety of colours choices and is an example of the idea implemented in the right way. If you're serious about staying warm and comfortable, this is it.
- Very comfortable, very long, very usable
- Comes in a wide variety of couch-matching colors
