Interview with the inventor of The Slanket

Forbes recently interviewed Gary Clegg – the inventor of The Slanket.

On The Slanket website Gary writes that the slanket was born when he was a cold student, he writes:
“One subzero night in 1998 during my first semester of college I could not escape Maine’s winter bite. While watching Late Night with Conan O’Brien I decided I needed to tear a hole in my sleeping bag so I could keep my upper body warm as I channel surfed during the commercial breaks. During Christmas vacation I commissioned the first Slanket to be made by my mother…and it was born.”
