The Heated Fleece Travel Blanket makes long trips pass like a dream

Heated Fleece Travel Blanket

Having to drive a long distance for a trip in the winter is painful. This statement holds true for the driver and passengers alike. While the driver at least has the road to keep them busy, those just sitting around in the passenger seat or back of the car have to entertain themselves. This is especially the case if there isn’t a working music or video player in the car. There are some of us that don’t even have a cassette player to work with, get motion sickness from reading books and looking at smartphones alike, and can’t turn on the heat lest the driver starts to get sleepy.

The best way to keep yourself occupied is to fall asleep until it’s your turn to drive. Seeing that you can’t make it the optimal dozing temperature in the vehicle, this Heated Fleece Travel Blanket will definitely help. This is a soft polyester fleece that measures 58 x 42”, and is bound to make sure you’re snug as a bug in a rug.

This plugs into a 12-volt power outlet (cigarette lighter), and has a cord 7’ long so it can even go to the back of a van. There’s a safety timer which you can set for 30-45 minutes at a time that will automatically shut off as it hits zero so you don’t overheat. This will cost you $27-40 depending on whether you want a navy blue or fleece blanket.
