The Hoodie Footie

The Hoodie Footie


There is an arms race taking place in the ‘blankets with sleeves’ market – with competing products like The Freedom Blanket, The Slanket, and The Snuggie all fighting for market-share and thinking up new features to distinguish their products and keep them fresh: The Slanket has introduced a foot pocket, The Snuggie launched a version for dogs, and all the companies keep releasing new and funky designs (Bitcoin anyone?).

But now a new product has hit the market that races ahead to the ultimate endgame where blankets with sleeves are eventually all merging into a full body blanket…..yeah, basically a ‘Onsie’. Step forward the ‘Hoodie Footie’.

The Hoodie Footie

The Hoodie Footie

The Hoodie Footie is basically a full-on fleece body suit.

Pajamagram is the company behing the Hoddie Footie, and they have dived in head first in the wearable blanket market and have created a product for all members on the family, for him, for her, for the kids…….and yeah, even for the dog.

The Hoodie Footie is a one piece garment that includes feet – basically the legs of the Hoodie Footie go directly into fleece socks/slippers, and the head features a hood with a drawstring.

The arms of the Hoodie Footie also covers your hands – although it does come with thumb holes so you can still be vaguely useful with your hands.

The whole thing has a zip up the front and comes with pockets at the front also. They have gone for utility as well as comfort in their product design.

Hang on, that sounds like I am basically covered completely, what if I get too hot?

Good question, and yes you are pretty much fully covered, but those clever people at Pajamagram have thought of this potential drawback and if you so desire you can unzip the feet from the Hoodie Footie and remove them if you so desire. Plus nobody is making you put the hood up, so leave it down if you are too hot.

The Hoodie Footie comes in a number of styles and colours, and it makes an interesting gift for your loved ones. It is cheaper than many of the Onsies on the market currently, that’s for sure.

Here is the official blurb about the Hoodie Footie:

Keep the entire family warm from head to toe with Hoodie-Footies made of our thickest and softest Marshmallow Microfleece. Hoodie-Footies are the hottest gift of the year and are a great way to wrap the ones you love in warmth. Available in a full range of sizes for newborns up to adults and even the family pets.

And here is another one:

Why buy one?

In all honesty the quality of the fleece is actually pretty good, thicker than a Snuggie and with less static, but not as thick and heavy as the Slanket – remember, this is a product designed for you to move around in, as well as lounging about in.

They are not a cheap item, usually retailing around the $80 mark for adults, so you’d expect quality at that price.

If you are unsure about your size or feel you are between sizes, then you might be advised to try the size below – as if you get a size too large then you will find the material can pile up in layers around your ankles.

One drawback is that if you need the toilet, and err….need to sit down, then you will have to take the whole thing off, so bear that in mind if you are settling down to a whole evening dressed ion your Hoodie Footie.

The fact that you can get a personalised one is a great touch though, and makes this product a really nice novelty gift.
