Born in the USA...Right Here in California! by Barbara L. Steinberg
It's amazing that anyone thinks to start a business today. Any business. And more shocking still to find that not only have they created a product utilizing good old fashioned American ingenuity but one that's made right here on American soil. Good grief. Manufacturing! What will they think of next?
Thanks to holiday infomercials you've all seen too much of the "Snuggie" and, sadly, many of you know it firsthand. A blanket with sleeves...who invents this stuff? Honestly, I have no idea what or where Snuggie came from. Or what it's made from. The ads say "fleece". Well Snuggie beware...The Down Under Cover has arrived!
The Down Under Cover doesn't have sleeves. I don't know about you, but my hands have never been "trapped" by any blanket. The Down Under Cover is soft and warm and great for just lying around the house. BUT the All Weather Warmer is all that and more...and is perfect for the great outdoors. water- and slip-resistant! The outer covering is made from rip stop nylon DWR that has a durable water resistant coating and is windproof. The interior is lined with the famous Polartec® Classic 300™ Double Velour that is soft and very warm. That sounds good and far more information then you'll find on the "snug" site. Better still, it's made right here in San Francisco, California. Gosh darn US of A and says so right on the label...right on the ad...right on the website. Not only do I know where it was made...I know who made it. I met Doug Snyder at the San Francisco Bay Flyway Festival on Mare Island in Vallejo, California. No infomercial in sight!
I hate to tell you that you can't get two Down Under Covers for the unbelievable price of $19.99 plus shipping and handling. And you won't get two "FREE" book lights as a bonus just for ordering right now! What you will get is a quality product that's made here in California, by a Californian. And if you want to spend time outdoors -- on your boat fishing or in some field waiting for that perfect photo -- the All Weather Warmer won't fail you. But I'm thinking that Snuggie will!
I wish Doug and his DUC a Made in California success story! You can make it so.
