For anyone who has been looking for a new weighted blanket, they’ve probably come across the Gravity Blanket. It is one of the most popular weighted blankets on the market for good reason.

Having tried many other weighted blankets, I was very excited to see how the Gravity Blanket compared. This review will go over all the important details of the weighted blanket and highlight the main takeaways consumers need to know about.

Gravity Weighted Blanket Video Review

See me personally test the Gravity Blanket in my video review below.

Who Might Like The Gravity Blanket…

  • Those who want a warm and insulating weighted blanket. If people are looking for something to provide good weight and also keep them warm at night, the Gravity Blanket should be an excellent option. The microfiber cover adds an additional layer of insulation. I used the weighted blanket by itself and did not need a comforter or extra blankets.
  • People who want to use a duvet cover with their weighted blanket. A duvet cover can add a lot to a weighted blanket for a number of reasons. It can increase the overall warmth and also make it easier to keep the weighted blanket clean. The Gravity Blanket comes with a free duvet cover that is both soft and warm. This makes the Gravity Blanket a good value overall.
  • Those who are worried about their weighted blanket falling off the bed. The Gravity Blanket is less wide than many weighted blankets. If people thrash a lot in their sleep, it is possible they could push a blanket toward the edge of the bed, and with its extra weight, it could then fall off. But with the narrower Gravity Blanket, they should have fewer issues with this and this shouldn’t be a concern overall.

Who Might Not Like The Gravity Blanket…

  • Hot sleepers. If people are prone to overheating while they sleep, the Gravity Blanket might not be the best pick for them. They could take the cover off, but it still might be too warm for them. If they are looking for a more breathable weighted blanket, they should consider Gravity Blanket’s cooling option.
  • Those who prefer a wider weighted blanket. While some people might like the narrower size of the Gravity Blanket, it might not be to everyone’s liking. If people prefer a weighted blanket that covers more of the mattress or they are a much larger person, they might need to look elsewhere.
  • People who need more size options. If someone is under 130 lb or over 260 lb, it might be difficult to find the right weight for them. With only three weight options, the Gravity Blanket could be too light or too heavy. Some companies offer blankets with smaller intervals, such as 18 lb and 22 lb. If people have a very specific weight in mind, they might not find it with a Gravity Blanket.

Construction And Buying Options

The Gravity Blanket’s outer shell is made from cotton and the blanket is then sewn with gridded stitching, creating medium-sized squares to hold the fill. The fill consists of hypoallergenic glass beads that produce a nice fell overall. In each pocket-sized square, there are a small number of beads as well as some polyester padding.

The dimensions of the Gravity Blanket are 72″ x 48″. This is not very wide for a weighted blanket, and it is made more to fit the size of someone’s body instead of the size of their bed.

Gravity Weighted Blanket Materials

What sets the Gravity Blanket apart is its cover, which is made with microfiber and has a very soft feel, similar to minky. It also has a smooth, velvety feel that a lot of people will really enjoy.

The blanket is secured to the cover with small tabs and ties, and the cover is machine washable.

There are three weight options currently available: 15 lb, 20 lb, and 25 lb. People under 130 lb and over 250 or 260 lb might need to look elsewhere.

In terms of colors, people can choose between Space Grey and Galaxy Blue.

My Experience

While there are only three weight options to choose from, I did not have an issue finding the proper weight for me. When choosing the right weighted blanket, people should typically want to shoot for 10 percent of their body weight. Being that I weigh 230 lb, the 25 lb Gravity Blanket was just right.

In terms of weight distribution, the Gravity Blanket performs fairly well. The sewn-through squares are wider than those I have seen on other weighted blankets, which means there’s more room for the fill to move around. That being said, I did feel a fairly even amount of weight across my body.

Sleeping with the Gravity Weighted Blanket

I was a big fan of the Gravity Blanket’s 48″ width, which is slimmer than many weighted blankets. I liked how it fit my body, and it was easy to cocoon myself in the weighted blanket. Also, I have had issues with wider weighted blankets falling off the bed. They can get close to the edge of the bed and then get pulled off by their own weight. I did not have this experience while using the Gravity Blanket.

The Gravity Blanket’s soft, microfiber duvet cover is one of the best aspects of the blanket. It is very soft and velvety and feels very nice on the skin. It adds a level of comfort to the weighted blanket and makes the blanket very warm and insulating. I was able to use the weighted blanket by itself on colder nights. Also, the Gravity Blanket is a value when considering that consumers won’t need to buy a duvet cover.

In the end, the true test of a weighted blanket is whether it helps people sleep better or not. After sleeping under the Gravity Blanket for a few nights, I can say that I slept deeply and comfortably with no real issues.

Overall

For people that want something all-inclusive to keep them warm at night, the Gravity Blanket should be an excellent option. However, if people sleep hot or want more options, they might want to look at other blankets on the market.

The company also offers more duvet covers, a cooling blanket, and a weighted mask. Financing is also available.
