Travel Slanket

1 09 2009

The Slanket is another genius invention from those ever-so-clever American johnnies that’s straight out of the why-didn’t-we-think-of-that file.

The Travel Slanket takes an everyday conundrum – staying warm on the go when you haven’t got (a) a boyfriend, (b) a girlfriend, or (c) a jacket with a built in radiator – and responds to the challenge with typically American aplomb… namely taking a couple of existing ideas and, to coin a phrase, hybridising them.

Think of the Slanket as a genetic cross-breed between a fleece and a blanket and you’re there. Alternatively, one may think of it as Big Daddy’s dressing gown. A fluffy house coat. A Jedi cape, without the hood.

The Slanket is, in short, a gigantic fleece blanket with sleeves. Pop it on and disappear inside its cuddly fleeciness. With some airlines charging to use their blankets and knowing just how cold it can be onboard, the Travel Slanket is an ideal addition to any flight and it still leaves you able to munch on the inflight meal and skip through the channels.

Uber soft, lightweight and warm, it’s got large, loose sleeves so you don’t actually feel you’re wearing it. Which might defeat the purpose, but who are we to argue? Spiffing.
