  • Pros:
  • Has sleeves!
  • Machine Washable
  • Keeps you warm
  • Big enough to cover your entire body
  • Cons:
  • Material seems cheap
  • Open in the back
  • Falls off your shoulders
  • Might be too big on some people
  • Can't share it
  • Looks a little silly

The Bottom Line:
The blanket with sleeves concept is interesting. It does keep you warm, and does solve the problem of keeping your arms warm as well. The material, though, feels a little cheap and wearing the Snuggie makes someone look a little funny. If that doesn't bother you, you might actually enjoy the Snuggie. Just be aware of the alternative products on the market that we found to be a little better.

Sleeves too long?

I've been wondering if the sleeves are too long and curtail normal functioning- like, do u find yourself maybe knocking a drink over because you have all this fabric hanging off of you?

(Or maybe it's just me...I'm kind of clumsy.)

You can always roll up the sleeves! They ARE long though, as you see in this video. Jonah is tall.

There was no place to enter my name on your site, and I don't subscribe to Facebook. I did enter some comments, and my reply to your "anonymous coward" phrase is that you can go to hell.

There is no mention of the trouble people had, in the beginning at least, when ordering it online. They were violating the law. Many people (me included) began getting unknown charges on their credit cards from sites that had obviously been informed by Snuggie of their credit card numbers. A lot of hidden charges also began popping up in their orders. These problems required significant effort to get resolved.

There are much better alternatives than the "Snuggie". During the winter season, Charter Club (From Macy's) released their version of the Snuggie called "Cozy-Ups" and the material was thicker and warmer. I gave one to my mom last Christmas and she LOVED them. I highly suggest the Cozy-Ups than some flimsy felt.

Pros: Warm from head to toe
Many cool colors
Machine washable

Cons: NONE BECAUSE I LOVE MY SNUGGIE!!!!!!!!

The Bottom Line: Well, I love the Snuggie because since I am a teen it is a little big for me. So sometimes I wear it backwards, with the opening in the front and it still keeps you warm!!!!!!! BUY THE SNUGGIE IT IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended: yes

cool but not that cool

Pros: warm

Cons: none really

The Bottom Line: the snuggie is warm and comfratble like you'd expect. It's cool to have your arms free but still warm, but honestly i cant think of many situations where that is essential to have. IT's a neat thing but really doesnt live up to allk the hype.

Recommended: yes

its a blanket with sleeves

Pros: it's a blanket, with sleeves

Cons: it's a blanket, with sleeves.

The Bottom Line: So the snuggie is taking the nation by storm. Let's just relax a little and think about this for a second. The infomercial for this thing wants you to believe that this thing will revolutionize the way you live your life. That it will make you happier and cooler than all your friends and neighbors.

Well it wont. It's a blanket, with sleeves. yeah it's warm and comfortable and sometimes its convenient but really, it's pretty much just a blanket that has sleeves sewn onto it.

Recommended: no

Actually I think I might just sew the back shut but I will have to cut this blanket in half because I will have that much excess fabric. I find that going big is not a solution for a "good" fit but rather laziness from an inexperienced sewer.

What It Claims To Do: The Snuggie boasts being a thick, ultra-soft luxurious fleece, one-size-fits-all, machine-washable blanket with sleeves. They claim to solve the problem of either having to let your arms remain cold, or keep them beneath a blanket and restrict their movement.

What We Found: Our first impression was that the Snuggie is NOT an ultra-soft, luxurious fleece. It felt more like a very cheap felt. The one-size-fits all is kind of true - it is definitely very big - even for my 6'3 height. A small child wearing it might look a little silly, but any adult should be able to wear it. Just keep in mind that if you're a little short, you might have to roll up the sleeves a bit. Even I found that I had to adjust the shoulders every now and then.

In terms of fashion - we don't give this very high marks. The commercial looks a bit like a Harry Potter convention. We're not sure how socially acceptable wrapping up in a Snuggie will be. It does look a little silly.

However - despite these drawbacks, it is quite warm. It does seem to work in the sense of being a warm blanket that covers more of you than a traditional blanket.

One more drawback - the Snuggie is a one-person blanket. Snuggling up with someone on the couch is out, unless they have their own Snuggie. We think the Snuggie would more aptly named "the warmie", because it doesn't snuggle as much as keep you warm.

The Snuggie creates a lot of static. Some throw blankets do this as well, but we felt that the amount of static created was a little excessive.

Despite the warmth, we couldn't shake the feeling that wearing the Snuggie feels a bit like wearing a hospital gown. A throw blanket can create the same warmth and will probably be made of better material. You could also just wear your bathrobe backwards.

However, we do want to mention that we know many people who were given Snuggies as gifts and seem to really like them. The Snuggie does have its merit.

There are alternatives to the Snuggie, like the Slanket, that cost a little more but seem to be made of better material.

The Bottom Line: The Snuggie does what it's supposed to do - keep you and provide your arms with both warmth and the freedom to move. The material seems a little cheap, you may have to adjust the Snuggie if you're a little shorter, and you can't really share it. Plus, there are more substantial alternatives on the market. However, some people really seem to like the Snuggie, so if you've been eyeing it for a while.... well, we won't tell you what to do.
