The Ultimate Slanket is the original fleece blanket with sleeves with a foot pocket and material that is beyond super soft. A 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.
Three years ago an untreated bout of bronchitis turned into pneumonia, and I found myself writhing in agony on my couch for days. Then one afternoon, in a moment of lucidity, I heard the doorbell ring and found a glorious chocolate-colored Slanket at my feet. My sister in Chicago had heard I was sick and knew this would cure me. And she was right! Within hours of wearing it I was already feeling better, and I was all but back to perfect health in another day or two. Now, I'm not one to knock the miracle of modern medicine, but as far as I'm concerned the Slanket did what antibiotics couldn't. IT SAVED MY LIFE!
I own TWO slankets...an original, and an ULTIMATE SLANKET, the one with the foot pocket. Although I really like my original slanket, to me, the BEST thing that was ever made was the ULTIMATE slanket! It is made of even softer, more plush material, and being wrapped up in it is like being swallowed up by a very soft stuffed animal!! It has been a LIFE SAVER to me. I was born with a rare, very painful disorder, and when any part of my body gets cold, the pain is MUCH worse. I don't know how I ever lived without my slanket. I bought the original one after I had the ultimate one, because I decided that I needed a lighter one for the warmer weather, to guard against the air conditioning. These slankets have made such a difference in my life...I thank Gary and his company for making this wonderful product!! I have also given one as a gift...an ULTIMATE slanket, and it was rec'd with a HUGE smile!! Plan to give another this Christmas...I know it will be loved very much. I plan to ALWAYS have an ultimate slanket with me, if I have any control over it...not much helps my pain, but this really helps. I just cannot express what that means to me. God bless you, SLANKET company!! IT'S WORTH A MILLION DOLLARS!!

You don't need many words to define Slanket. Slanket feels just like home. Getting hugged by that "superfurry animal", just makes you forget all the bad and cold of your worst day. You put it on, close your eyes, and go back to your mother's warm embrace, or your lover's one, even if you're sitting alone on the top of a mountain.

I bought the leopard print Ultimate Slanket from QVC when it was Today’s Special Value last week. It’s the nicest, cuddliest blanket I could ever use. I just love the pocket for your feet. I had bought another similar product at a local store about 3 months ago (before I had seen your product). Let me tell you there is absolutely no comparison. I am giving the “other one” to my neighbor. I can’t wait to sit down this evening to watch TV all snuggly in my Slanket. The best part of it will be my warm toasty feet. I highly recommend this product to one and all! (The Ultimate Slanket is currently available at QVC.com) A customer and friend for life,

I want to thank Gary and Jeff for providing an outstanding product. I received my Hunter Green Slanket as a gift for Christmas in 2007. I've used it for two winters and I absolutely adore it. I snuggle, sleep, eat, and make love under it. The Slanket is absolutely perfect. I was impressed by the stitching; it is a very well sewn blanket. I don't worry about washing it and having the stitching come undone. It is very warm and lightweight but doesn't take long to wash or dry. I keep the thermostat set to below 60 degrees in winter to help conserve electricity and Gary and Jeff's Slanket helps get me through. I save a lot of money on my electric bill because of the Slanket. There are a lot of copycat and imitation products out there, which are inferior to the quality and craftsmanship of The Slanket. My money was best spent buying The Slanket. It was the best Christmas gift I ever got. Thanks Gary and Jeff.
