Honestly, the first night took some getting used to. When I turned over it took some effort to move under the blanket. But by the third night I am in love with this blanket and sleep more soundly than I have in years. I particularly notice when I have to sleep in another bed, and find myself wanting the secure feeling of the weight this blanket has. I was worried about being too hot (I am in my 50’s and often too hot) but have found it is cooling. The quality of the blanket is beautiful. I am very happy with the blanket and am ordering one for the other bed I go to when my husband snores.
The blanket is high quality, cool, and definitely improves my sleep quality (insomnia/anxiety sufferer), but it’s not heavy enough when I’m under it with my partner (I am 155lbs, he is 260lbs). The weight is partially distributed on your partner, so the pressure exerted on you is half the 25lbs or less. It’s also generally challenging to sleep with a partner under: get ready to wrestle the super heavy blanket out from beneath your larger partner when the covers get pulled off of you. Sleeping under it alone, however—with the blanket pulled up onto the mattress surface and tucked around you—is wonderful, and for that and the blanket quality, 4 stars. If I could do it again, I’d buy the twin version and sleep with a personal blanket rather than making this my primary bedding.
Blanket and cover nice, just a little heavier than expected. It doesn't cover the full bed to go down a little on the sides.
I've been interested in a "weighted blanket" for my husband since reading about them last year but didn't like the materials or colors of the products I saw. When I saw the Baloo blanket on instagram this spring, I really loved the look. Reviews were so great that I decided to order. Absolutely love our blanket and the customer service is excellent. Received my blanket 2 days after ordering. My husband seems to fall asleep faster, and sleeps more soundly. Highly recommend. Bought the twin/throw size for my daughter and she loves it.
This is my second Baloo blanket. I previously purchased a Queen size one and I’ve now purchased the king. I did many reviews and this is by far the best weighted blanket to buy. It washed very good lays perfect once again. You will. It regret this purchase and you will absolutely sleep so good everynight!!!
