Trick-Or-Treat Hop: Slanket Review

About Slankets:

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.

Everyone behind The Slanket is on the same level when it comes to life. Besides creating a product to make people comfortable and warm, our life goals are not to accumulate mansions, SUV's, expensive watches and closets just for shoes. What we want in life is to travel the world and experience all its cultures while representing humanity positively. Whether surfing in Costa Rica, snowboarding in Austria, or studying language in South America and China, we love to spread our sleeves and let them flap in the wind, giving back in the process. BUT... there is nothing like coming home, wrapping up in The Slanket on your own couch and feeling the warmth of your friends and family.

My Thoughts:

I honestly do not know how I ever survived without a Slanket and I am so glad Slanket is letting me share this awesome product with all of you! Please excuse the mess in this photo, E snapped it when I wasn't quite ready, but this is how I use my Slanket on a daily basis. After the kids are in bed it is perfect to use when I'm doing homework so I don't freeze. As you can see my computer, backpack, and water mug are all nearby so once I'm warm I am ready to work. When it's not quite so cold I also like to wear the my Slanket backwards. This works great for me because it leaves the opening in the front so I can still nurse baby D.

The Slanket has washed great! I have not had any problems with staining and other than E complaining that it is hard to fold it is wondrful!

Watch tomorrow for an awesome giveaway from Slanket!
