The holiday season just got a whole lot more comfortable — and warmer — for fans of the Grateful Dead. Slowtide, a Costa Mesa, CA-based brand that produces surf-inspired apparel and accessories, released its latest collection of Grateful Dead merch earlier this summer, with a line of Grateful Dead camp blankets that quickly sold out. But now with some of the gear back in stock, Slowtide has discounted its entire shop for anyone who missed out the first time.

Slowtide is running an early-bird Black Friday sale across its site, so it’s a good time for any fan to score some new merch. All you have to do to get the discount is use the promo code THANKFUL25 at checkout.

The officially-licensed blankets are part of Slowtide’s larger Grateful Dead collection, which includes towels, ponchos, yoga blankets and throw blankets, all of which regularly sell out. Fans will want to act fast on this limited restock before even more items go out of stock again.



Buy: Touch of Grey Camp Blanket at $49.95

One of its best-sellers on the Slowtide website is the Touch of Grey camp blanket. It measures 58 x 72 inches, so it’s plenty big for a couple to relax at an outdoor show. Of course, as the name suggests, the Grateful Dead camp blanket will also keep you nice and cozy when you’re camping, or to throw in along with your sleeping bag at night.

Slowtide says it made the polar fleece blanket with fully recycled materials, and all of the brand’s products are Oeko-Tex-certified, meaning none of its products are produced with harmful materials. The well-designed blanket is soft enough for all-day lounging, and it features a rugged water-repellant DWR finish on the bottom. That means it’s tough enough to be used outdoors, which is perfect to shield you from the cold, wet ground after a night of sleeping in your tent.

The blanket even comes with convenient corner pockets that display the band’s iconic Steal Your Face logo, where you can slide in things like your phone, sunglasses or a set of keys to prevent you from losing them at the campground or at the park.

Slowtide’s Grateful Dead products are known to sell out fast, so you might want to act quickly if you want these discounted Grateful Dead blankets for your weekend adventures this season.

Slowtide is just one of many brands that has recently released official Grateful Dead products. Earlier this year, accessories company Stance launched a collection of Grateful Dead socks, while the band also collaborated with Kollectico on a limited run of its Dancing Skeleton bobbleheads.

And just this November, the Dead teamed up with the Parks Project for the limited-edition Welcome to Bear Country collaboration of blankets and camping gear.
