kuddly vs oodie
Updated: January 17, 2022 | Author: Leslie Swanson
Last year, I had the pleasure of comparing what are now the two most popular gift items this year—the kuddly hoodie vs the Oodie. Both massive hoodies, they’re literally the warmest, most comfortable pieces of clothing you’ll ever own.
Kuddly was the champ with consistent shipping times, the longest hoodie blanket available, a more competitive price, and the fact that kuddly had stock last year while the Oodie struggled.
Now a year later, let’s see how they still match up . . .
Well… Oodie claims it’s 10% longer than competitors, making them extra comfortable as they cover more of your legs. But we’ve done the measurements, and Kuddly is the larger of the two, making Kuddly the superior hooded blanket when it comes to size and comfort.
Not only that, on the Oodie site they have a graphic that claims their Oodie is a length of 98cm from shoulder to end, but the measuring tape doesn’t lie. In fact, the Oodie measures at a length of 89cm. Seems they got their numbers reversed. Whereas the Kuddly measures at 94cm—a whole 5cm longer.
Oodie also states on their website that they have the highest quality material, that guarantees exceptional experience and comfort. The Oodie’s cosy, we’ll give them that, but comparing the sherpa interior from the Oodie to the sherpa interior from the Kuddly, we think the picture speaks for itself. The Kuddly Blanket Hoodie is just as comfy and cosy, if not more.
When it comes to quality of design, Oodie falls a bit short in comparison as they don’t provide their lining with a trim, whereas as you can see from the image below, Kuddly does, keeping their hoodie’s sherpa from eventually sagging and peaking after consistent use. Well done, Kuddly!
The one thing we’ll give Oodie a win on is the number of various patterns they come in, whereas Kuddly currently only comes in 9 colours, but look out Oodie because we’re sure more patterns from Kuddly are just on the horizon.
Shipping and Returns
Where the two hooded blankets match in comparison is their returns and shipping. Both companies offer a 30-day return policy and free shipping.
That said, kuddly’s appears to have quicker delivery times. In comparison, this past Christmas, it looked like the Oodie once again struggled with shipping times and stock, which was reflected in their Trustpilot reviews.
