Snuggle Up Fleece Reviews
Snuggle Up Fleece is a chair cover that fits the contour of most recliners to provide extra comfort and protection for the fabric underneath. You simply toss it over a chair, attach the straps, and your enjoy your new chair cover.
The design certainly isn’t revolutionary, as similar products have been around for many years (see below). Snuggle Up Fleece was marketed in limited capacity in mid-2015 before ramping up to a full advertising campaign by the end of the year.
In our research of this type of product in general, we found that consumer satisfaction is typically based on proper fit and durability of the fabric. In the case of most fleece chair covers, consumer satisfaction is relatively moderate, albeit leaning toward the positive.
As expected with most As Seen on TV products, Snuggle Up Fleece is not made of the highest quality materials, but we found that it is durable enough to suit its purpose.
The mandatory shipping cost of two products, which totals $17.90, is an unfortunate way many products are marketed on television in recent years. There is also virtually no description of the Deluxe model in which consumers can compare with the standard version. We may have opted to try it were there more information about the product.
Snuggle Up Fleece, as with most recliner covers, comes with several pockets to hold remotes or magazines. These are a welcomed addition, and are positioned in an easy to access location.
The primary concern of our readers has been that of sizing. While the commercial states that it “perfect fits your favorite large fabric-covered recliner,” sizing appears to be the primary complaint. “It’s too small,” has been the mantra we have heard from those who have used the product.
Another concern – which will vary from chair to chair – is that Snuggle Up Fleece doesn’t stay in place. This appears related to the straps, and how well they hold the cover onto your chair. A loose fit means that it could slip and bunch up. Your mileage may vary.
Fleece chair covers are relatively common, although a surprisingly high number of them on Amazon only have lukewarm consumer ratings.
Snuggle Up Fleece is a recliner cover that began marketing in 2015. It sports a familiar design, and offers acceptable durability, although some customers have said that it may be too small to fit all chairs. Because the product is now available in stores, we recommend purchasing from a local retailer to avoid shipping costs and delays. It will also give you a chance to evaluate it first-hand before making your final purchase decision.
