I wear my Snuggie . . . Everywhere!!

A recent Snuggie commercial claimed that you can wear it everywhere - and it showed people wearing it at the movies, at the sporting event, etc. - it's obviously a bit (lot) on the dorky side. I purchased one initially as a joke, but being dubious, I had to see if that claim can be backed up - can you really wear the Snuggie everywhere?


Just be sure to wash gently to avoid splashing water on the precious Snuggie!




Keeps you nice and warm from the frosty fridge!




Makes ordinary chores such as taking out the trash more bearable on a crisp fall day!




No more goosebumps from the chill of exposed thighs!




For the fellas: In case wearing one makes others question your manhood - this'll show them!




Job complete! No more slipping/dropping tools due to cold hands!




You can swing higher and faster without worrying about the nip of the rushing wind!




Needs some work holding itself together in the back at higher speeds, but the Snuggie shows that it's hardcore and not for the faint of heart!




More to come!!

Are you kidding? The rushing wind is the best reason to use the Snuggie on a swingset. It's second only to wearing a kilt on a motorcycle.

The loose-fitting sleeves help to hide your hands as you enter your PIN, so you don't have to casually look over your shoulder to see if the person behind you is trying to peek!




No more paying extra for Full-Serve just to avoid getting out of the car when it's cold!





The Snuggie commercial shows people wearing it TO a sporting event - this Snuggie IS the sporting event!






Don't matter where - this Snuggie's always the king of the court!





The Snuggie was such a hit that the dancers started actually PAYING ME!!!
