Slanket Review and Giveaway

So everyone has a guilty pleasure (or two), one of Jet Pilot's is that he secretly wanted a relaxing blanket to snuggle in--WITH SLEEVES.  He has never said it out loud to me but I saw the longing in his eyes when Bonnie would bust hers out and relax while watching a movie.  So I did a little digging and discovered a company called Slanket. Here is a little info on Slanket and its inception...

"One subzero night in 1998 during my first semester of college I could not escape Maine's winter bite. While watching Late Night with Conan O'Brien I decided I needed to tear a hole in my sleeping bag so I could keep my upper body warm as I channel surfed during the commercial breaks. During Christmas vacation I commissioned the first Slanket to be made by my mother...and it was born.
--Gary Clegg (Slanket Creator)"

"The Slanket®
The Original Blanket with Sleeves!™
The Slanket is a gigantic fleece blanket with sleeves. A very soft to the touch, lightweight, but warm fleece blanket with large, loose sleeves designed so you don't feel like you're wearing the blanket, simply wrapped up in its wonder. The Slanket is designed to keep your entire body covered and cozy while you still retain the use of your hands. Simplistic and practical, its innovativeness opens up possibilities, but still can replace any normal blanket.

Pretty creative right??  I was sent the Slanket Original in Limoges Blue for Jet Pilot and when he came home and saw the box addressed to him I could see a gleam of excitement in his eye.   When he took the Slanket out of the package and tried it on--HE WAS TOTALLY PUMPED.  Never in a million years would he have asked for something like this because he is not the type to ask for anything so the idea that I had gone above and beyond and thought of getting it for him was great!!  
Since the Slanket's arrival Jet Pilot VERY ROUTINELY is seen in our living room wrapped up in it like a newborn while relaxing and watching TV.  
                                      
The Slanket is made from VERY THICK and soft fleece.  Like luxury status fleece.  Like a blanket with sleeves-SERIOUSLY.  I have seen other imitations of similar products and I can tell you hands down this product is a higher end, nicer quality than some of the other knock offs I have seen around.  Slanket also offers a variety of colors and prints and styles...stylish prints...girly ones, boyish ones and just down right cute ones.  Also available in kids sizes and Siamese style--think 2 people, 1 Slanket!!



I almost picked this one cuz Jet Pilot is a CS Major..yeah we roll corny like that!
