I've been waiting weeks to get paid and buy my slanket now that the cold weather has kicked in. After reading lots of reviews about snuggies, slankets, and other holy blankets, a slanket seemed like the best option, but I was a little worried that a regular one would be too long for me. Eventually I found the travel slanket, which claimed to be slightly shorter, so I decided to go for it!
The fleece is very warm without feeling heavy, and has extra material around the neck to keep you super cosy! I am 5ft3, and it is the perfect size for me - I do have to hitch it up to walk around, but if it was any shorter then my feet would get cold lying down! I am happy with the "ruby wine" colour, as it will probably endure a few wine spills during its lifetime; it also comes with a fleecy bag, although I doubt it will get much use.
Although I am very happy with my slanket, I can't imagine anyone 1. wearing this in public, or 2. giving up that much space in their hand luggage! I guess I would recommend this if you're a passenger in a car, but that's about it. If, on the other hand, you're on the short end of the scale, then you should definitely get this instead of a regular slanket.
