Snug as a Bug in a Rug

For the average sun-loving Australian, winter is an unavoidable trial to be endured while waiting for the return of spring and the promise of a blistering hot summer. Those who find the thought of chilly winter mornings too horrible to contemplate can now rest easy – literally! The lazy patch “duvet” suit is here!

lazypatch-duvet-suitRugged up in your lazy patch pants and jacket, you can make a smooth transition from your snuggly bed to your couch without the inconvenience of having to pull back the blankets or getting dressed. Just fall into bed in your lazy patch suit at night and you’re good to go as soon as you wake up with the added benefit of not having to make the bed – after all, you’re taking the blankets with you.

I had to giggle when I first saw the TV ad for the lazy patch. We would never get anything done on the weekends if we were all zipped up into mobile doonas.

I checked out the website prepared to mock and shake my head in dismay. I was pleasantly surprised with the humorous and friendly tone of the content. I was also surprised to discover that the idea was inspired by Simon Rhoden, a young man with cystic fibrosis who was forced to spend too many hours inactive on the couch.

A percentage of the profits from lazy patch suit sales is donated to The Simon Rhoden Foundation, an organisation that supports CF sufferers.

My mocking amusement has turned to quietly amused admiration for those who have taken a quirky idea and pulled it all together. This Australian company ships internationally, so no matter where you are, you can order a lazy patch suit for yourself or for someone you know who might benefit from a wearable blanket for winter.

For prices and further details (including a range of colours – I’m fascinated by the camouflage version), check out the lazy patch website. If you have one of these suits, we’d love to know what you think. If you’re feeling generous, you can order me a size 2 jacket in black thanks.

As much as I enjoyed the website, they seem to be lacking a strong catchphrase. I think that the lazy patch “duvet” suit has some excellent slogan potential.

    As much as these comments seem a little fake to me, i must say that this company is pathetic and unprofessional. They have been taking orders for the past couple of months, including an order from me. I was promised my order will be dispatched within 5 days. 2 weeks pass and nothing, no reply to my emails. No phone number on website.

    3 weeks later I get an email from the owner saying that none of the orders can be fulfilled because there is NO stock left for another 7 weeks. Why the website didnt reflect this is beyond me. The email also said, please call me on SATURDAY to talk about it. The CUSTOMERS have to call him! I requested my money back.

      Thank you for your feedback Ryan. Rest assured these comments are not fake (that we know of), and we at thinkthinks.com have no affiliation with lazypatch. We were just amused by what we first thought was a fun product but that on further investigation found was inspired by a good cause.

      Hope you can get your problems sorted out!
