With the increasing popularity of weighted blankets in recent years, there seems to be no end of brands to choose from. However, quality plays an important role in any purchase, which is why we decided to put some brands to the test. How does the Gravity Blanket hold up against the competition? Let’s take a closer look.
Understanding the Product
The benefits of sleeping with a weighted blanket are numerous. The heavy, bead-filled blanket uses deep-pressure touch to relieve anxiety, release tension, and relax the body. A release of both serotonin and melatonin helps individuals enter a fully restful sleep and stay there throughout the night. Individuals with restless leg syndrome or night anxiety often swear by the magical powers of deep-pressure touch. But is Gravity the right brand?
Gravity Weighted Blanket Review
Whether the product in question is cookware, flooring, or makeup, almost everything can be evaluated using the following four criteria. Let’s take a look at how Gravity Blanket did.
Gravity Blanket’s products come in several different designs, each one appealing to a different audience. However, the overarching design of each subtype includes a gridded interior filled with glass beads, as well as a shell exterior for easy washing. Both pieces of the blanket are breathable, high-quality, and suitable for the purpose of the product.
Each style of the Gravity blanket features high-quality fabric that is long-lasting and durable. The grid on the inner layer prevents beads from gathering to one side or corner of the blanket. Assuming the fabric is properly washed and maintained, the threads hold up very well against competitors, and the product will last for years.
Although the blanket itself cannot be customized (e.g. a specific number of pounds), there are several options available for individuals with different needs.
The basic Gravity weighted blanket comes in single, queen, and king sizes with weight options of 15, 20, 25, and 35 pounds. Its plush, microfiber cover houses non-toxic glass beads sewn in a grid for even weight distribution. This classic design provides both warmth and weight for the sleeper who enjoys being tight and cozy.
For hot sleepers, the cooling Gravity blanket offers all of the same features as the class. However, the duvet cover is made of a cooling, moisture-wicking polyester instead of plush microfiber.
For children who require less weight, Gravity provides a 10-pound kids’ blanket that comes with a soft, weighted toy. This blanket comes in the same moisture-wicking polyester as the cooling blanket.
Additionally, Gravity Blanket offers a 66”x42”, 10-pound travel blanket that comes with its own carrying case. This blanket also comes in polyester, though not the same moisture-wicking one as the cooling blanket.
The Modernist blanket offers a 300-thread count, fully cotton cover for maximum comfort and coolness.
Quality and budget must always be in balance with one another. Fortunately, the Gravity Blanket delivers in this area as well. A high-quality, durable blanket from this company costs between $135 and $259, while a weighted throw blanket costs as low as $70. This affordable price makes it difficult to justify a bad night of sleep.
Final Thoughts on the Gravity Blanket
Keep in mind that good results come from smart use. The manufacturer recommends sleeping with a weighted blanket that is 10% of your body weight. So, if you weigh 200 pounds, a 20-pound blanket will probably provide you with the best night of sleep. Of course, if you share a bed with a partner, the queen or king-sized blanket distributes the total weight over the width of the bed, so a higher weight is fine.
The Gravity Blanket stands strong against other brands as a durable, well-made, comfortable blanket. It relieves tension in the body and aids in producing a restful night of sleep.
