Nothing beats a cozy blanket in the wintertime. Personally, I keep plush throws throughout my living room, office, and bedroom so I’m never without one. Whether writing or watching TV, I’ve been getting through the colder months by cuddling up with a comfy throw.
So when Casper asked if I wanted to test its new Casper Snoozewear Blanket Robe, I was intrigued by the concept of a wearable blanket. While I haven’t owned many bathrobes—save for a $5 one during college—I wondered whether this blanket-like version would make me a robe person. I tried the Casper Snoozewear Blanket Robe, which retails for $169, to see if it was the robe of my dreams—or if I wouldn’t mind snoozing and losing out.
What is Casper Snoozewear?
While mattress-in-a-box company Casper has expanded its offerings in recent years (one of our reviewers even tried a Casper dog bed), it was—ahem—sleeping on apparel. But in January 2022, the brand brought its signature sleep-centric approach to wearable pieces. Its Snoozewear collection includes a pair of microsuede slippers, a stretchy sleep mask that the brand claims "blocks out light and noise," and the Blanket Robe. All Snoozewear items are backed by a 30-day risk-free trial and a 6-month limited warranty that covers defects via faulty workmanship or materials. The duvet-inspired Blanket Robe comes in indigo, off-white, and white, and in unisex sizes S to L.
What I like about the Casper Snoozewear Blanket Robe
It's an easy way to walk around with a blanket
The Casper Snoozwear Blanket Robe is just that: a blanket and a robe in one, similar to the Comfy. While watching Netflix, working on my laptop, and so on, the style functioned as both. Thanks to its oversized fit, I could wrap the ends completely around my legs to create a cozy cocoon. Though the robe is large—I opted for a size small—the puffy fabric is lightweight and feels like walking around the house while wrapped in a soft duvet. Because it doesn't have drawstrings or cords, it's easy to slip on and off.
The pockets are useful
There’s something special about pockets in pieces that don’t always have them. While I didn’t think anything could be more exciting than a dress with pockets, a blanket with pockets might give it a run for its money. Large enough to fit a remote, glasses, or even a small book, the pockets are by far the robe’s most functional feature.
It's great for working from home
If you work from home, the Casper Snoozewear Blanket Robe lets you wear a pajama-like piece without putting on actual pajamas. It comes in neutral colors and easily layers with leggings, joggers, and so on—although, because it’s so voluminous, you’d likely ditch it before heading out to school drop-off or the corner coffee shop.
What I don’t like about the Casper Snoozewear Blanket Robe
It's not as cozy as fleece
Because Casper’s Snoozwear line ostensibly lets you bring the bed with you, I was expecting constant coziness. However, with a 100% cotton shell and 100% poly fill, the Snoozewear Blanket Robe has more in common with a comforter than a plush or fleece robe. If you’re expecting Snuggie-level softness, this might not be the style for you. On the other hand, if you live in a warmer climate or still want to snuggle in the summer, the duvet-like fabric could be a better fit.
It has a $169 price tag
Another downside? The nearly $170 price tag. Although you’d expect to drop big bucks on a mattress, robes aren't often a major purchase. The blanket and robe combination feels—and looks—like you wrapped yourself in a giant comforter. You could purchase bathrobes, a blanket sweatshirt like The Comfy, or even some real—albeit sleeveless—duvets for less. The price set a high value bar for me, and the design just didn't clear it.
It runs large
Additionally, while the Snoozewear Blanket Robe is meant to be snuggly instead of snug, I found even the unisex size small too baggy. The brand recommends this size for people 5-foot-4-inch and under, but it completely enveloped my 5-foot-3-inch frame. While the sleeves might be shorter on someone with longer arms, mine were so long and loose I was afraid I’d knock over my tea. Because the style felt more like carrying around a blanket than wearing a robe, I’d be hesitant to bring it beyond my bedroom or the living room couch. The robe comes in three unisex sizes, so if you’re deciding between two, it might be best to go with the smaller one.
While the Snoozewear Blanket Robe features a thick, long lapel that's more stylish than the standard bathrobe, the overall design favors function over fashion. Although there aren't any closures, there's one decorative blue button with the letter "Z" sewn on it. Because the button doesn't have a purpose, it looks misplaced amid the sea of gray fabric.
Is the Casper Snoozewear Blanket Robe worth it?
It depends. The Casper Snoozewear Blanket Robe lives up to its claim as a wearable blanket. If you’re tired of plush and fleece robes—and don’t mind the price tag—the Snoozewear Blanket Robe could be worth considering. But if you’re looking for something fleece-filled and budget-friendly, you won’t miss much by snoozing on Casper’s pricey, duvet-like design.
