I have mixed feelings on this product. I currently use a bamboo flat sheet with/instead of the duvet which I find much lighter and more breathable.
But on the plus side I do enjoy the weight and reassuring ‘drape’ of it which the lighter bamboo flat sheets fail to provide. And I am glad to have it as a weighter flat sheet alternative in the warmer months
Instantly cools your body. Love this. I live in Texas and this has been the best purchase of the year. Love it. Also it is reversible. One side feels instantly cool on your skin and the other is like a light blanket. Both sides super soft and also it is easy to clean. Would recommend for sure. I plan to purchase the bigger size as well to cover my bed. Bought small size first to make sure it works for me.
So Portland was hotter than Kuwait this week and I had purchased one of these blankets for myself early last week. When it arrived, things were heating up and I gave it to my daughter to test. She loved it, so i got myself one. We have a couple of area acs that were struggling big time. With this blanket and fans, we were able to sleep well. I highly recommend. They have a very comforting feel and being able to flip it bavk and forth is so convenient. I had a read in a review to snap it to reset the coolness and it worked!
I absolutely love this blanket! Its thin and lightweight but holds in the heat nicely. It's been unsusually cold in Las Vegas lately so this has been nice to have at my desk. The reverse side has a different material that is cool to the touch, I like using this side in bed at night. It's like that feeling of flipping over the pillow to the cool side... but all over your body!
Honestly, I wasn't expecting this blanket to have a cooling effect. I thought it was just a light blanket, but it actually does cool you.
HOWEVER, it cools best when it comes into contact with your skin. The material of the blanket (the silky side) is what gives off that cooling effect, and when it's against clothes it isn't as noticeable as when it's directly against skin. Putting it in the freezer before use is also really nice when the day is just too hot.
The cooling effect is lessened/lost when the blanket heats to body temperature, and at that point needs to be cooled off again or shifted around to keep cooling.
