The new and improved CoolMax blanket continues to help people across the country. Experiencing the comforting weight of a weighted blanket WITHOUT the heat changes everything...

Because when you sleep better, you live better.

We’d love to share some recently submitted  5-star reviews from our customers. Maybe you can relate to one of their stories!

Sleeping great

I was worried I’d be too hot but it stays comfortable on hot summer nights. It’s easy to clean and definitely helps with my anxiety.

I sleep so well with my weighted blanket that I took it with me on vacation recently, hence the title “Linus.”  Well worth the purchase!

Worth Every Penny

I have suffered with sleeping issues for 30 years now - essentially all of my adult life. My primary doctor tried EVERY sleep medication with me, and I tried OTC versions as well...essentially you name it, I tried it. A couple of them caused me horrific nightmares. Needless to say, I wasn't going to take them.

I resorted to asking my friends on Facebook what they'd recommend for sleep and the list was endless and then a friend told me her son uses a weighted blanket and told me about the one he has. When I looked at the price my reaction was, I am NOT spending that much on a blanket. Besides that, a lot of the reviews mentioned it makes you hot. I need no help in that department!!

Fortunately, at this time, theWeighting Comforts ad popped up on my Facebook feed. What really caught my attention was the COOLMAX version. I read reviews, I researched the company and I decided that I was going to give it a try.  A company that is socially responsible goes a long way for me.

I used the last money in my account to buy this blanket, because really, what is more important than your health and your sleep?

I received it a few short days later and have been sleeping like a baby ever since. I can say without hesitation, it is worth every penny.

I no longer wake up with night sweats. If I do wake up in the middle of the night, I go back to sleep immediately --- that did not happen before this blanket. I wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day. I wake up happy!

Call me Linus...this is my adult "binkie."

I love mine!

I no longer wake up soaking wet from my big heavy blanket. Now I get the weight I love and need without the heat!!

I bought this blanket for my daughter who struggles with sleep issues. She was sleeping better from the first night and forward. This is going to make all the difference in her life, and we are extremely grateful! We are recommending it to all who we know!

Fall in between two different weight limits for two blankets? We suggest going with the smaller of the two blanket weights.

Still not sure which size to buy? Most of our customers buy one of the 15-pound blankets.
