I've been waiting to write this review to see how it holds up. I've had the sleeve for a couple of weeks now and I use it all the time - on soda cans, bottles and even regular plastic cups of various sizes. I love it. I did find it a bit hard to get on a few of the items - the soda can for example - but I think that's because I like my soda (and drinks in general) ice cold.. and as you all know, cans get even colder than most things lol. I also found it hard to get on the yellow cup shown in the photo. I think this is because it's an old plastic cup and I was trying not to rip the yarn (as there are a bunch of hard pieces on the bottom rim area from years and years of cleaning, etc.. so that is probably more because of me than the SLIPPY itself.
The design for this specific sleeve is hibiscus on a red background. So, it would be great out and about during the holiday season - or any season! It keeps your hands warm because of the high quality yarn used, which was made from a plastic bottle!! Save the ocean (and world)! They would make great gifts and don't take much much room at all! Also, if your legs/arms are smaller you could use them as ankle or wrist warmers lol
Will definitely be ordering more of these as gifts! Thank you to Zach and the team for such a great idea.. saving the planet and making items that people actually use!

I am already a fan of Freaker Koozies (for bottles) and the new Slippies are a great addition to the range,
The Slippy is intended to replace the cardboard sleeve used on disposable coffee cups to keep your coffee hot and prevent you from burning your hands. It does a great job at this and and I like the fact it is reusable time and again as although cardboard can be recycled, it is still using valuable resources in doing so. The other brilliant thing is that each Slippy is made from a recycled plastic bottle that would otherwise have ended up polluting the ocean.
They are very versatile and can be used in various other ways, e.g. small beer bottles, cans, tumblers, etc as demonstrated in the photos I have taken. Then can be used to keep your drinks cool as well as hot too.
I love some of the zany designs Freaker have used for their Koozies and I hope they will be able to incorporate similar designs on their Slippies range.
The only downside for me is that when I have ordered from Freaker in the past I have had to pay import taxes and duty as I live in the UK.

I really didn’t like the product at all. It seemed like a good product but it didn’t live up to the hype. The material feels weird and I just don’t like it. I hate the texture that I feel every time. It’s hard to get into cups and stuff I have. /Maybe they should use a different material because that’s the key issue. It is a good idea and I see why they created this but it’s not good at all. I would use just my hands than use this product. It also has a bad smell whereI couldn’t bare it anymore. The color looks terrible - very yellow in the photos on the product and on the placemat - the overall prooduct is crooked blurry, and poor coloration.
Is it possible to order different styles but have different pictures on each one? I collect these from everywhere I travel, and when I don't find one I like, I get one printed with my favorite pictures from the trip.
