We Ride for Slanket

Did you know that those corporate fatcats over at Snuggie are also ripoff artists?? Thats right. Ten years before the Snuggie, there was the Slanket. Born in 1998, here is their story.... as told on their website...

"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
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.
Jesus.... think these guys smoke any weed?

Anywho.... Fuck Snuggie. Get your Slanket game right. They even have a two person model... The Siamese Slanket. Take that Fatcats
