When winter strikes, all we want to do is curl up under the covers. Unfortunately, staying in bed where it’s nice and cozy isn’t exactly conducive to high levels of productivity. The geniuses behind The Comfy (from $39.99, Amazon) understand this conundrum all too well and have figured out the only suitable solution: roll both into one!
This oversized hoodie is exactly what it sounds like: a wearable blanket that moves and functions like a sweatshirt thanks to its large hood and front kangaroo pocket. With one of these on hand, you’ll be able to go about with your daily tasks without ever leaving the comfort of your toasty blanket.
Its exterior is made of a soft microfiber, while the inside is comprised of a luxe Sherpa (you can also wear it inside out if you prefer). A one-size-fits-all design ensures it will keep you covered, and there’s room to spare if you want to pull it down around your legs — an ideal setup for snuggling up in your favorite reading chair or staying warm at a bonfire.
We know what you’re thinking: How is this any different than a Snuggie ($19.99, Amazon)? It’s all in the design. While the Snuggie is like a backwards robe that goes all the way down to the feet, The Comfy goes on overhead (like a sweatshirt) and allows for more freedom of motion.
When you’re done wearing it (or rather, when you’re forced to take it off), you can simply throw it in the wash on cold for cleaning.
We’re not the only ones who think it’s genius: Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavac and Barbara Corcoran both made offers to co-owners and brothers Brian and Michael Speciale, who accepted Corcoran’s deal at $50,000 for 30 percent of their company.
Following their appearance, The Comfy sold out online and went viral on social media. Though the brothers have not divulged their sales since appearing on the show, Brian told Business-2-Community earlier this year that he’s confident he’s got “one of the most successful products in Shark Tank history” on his hands.
Currently, it boasts more than 950 five-star reviews on Amazon, with buyers likening it to a “warm and intimate hug.”
“It feels so luxurious that I want to wear it all the time,” raved one happy shopper.
Choose from one of 15 colors and prints, including a reindeer, an elf, and a special Susan G. Komen version that suppors breast cancer awareness (Comfy will donate to $50,000 to the foundation regardless of sales).
