To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’ve used this blanket for the first time and it works like all of the other reviews have stated. It’s remarkable that something so compact and thin can insulate me so well. It is made of a material that is similar to a soft, densely woven T-shirt. The only thing I can think of that allows it to work so effectively is that the windchill of the ventilation on the plane is completely blocked, allowing your body heat to build up under it. The ambient temperature of the plane with the blanket makes for a snuggly warm place to be. I will have to try it somewhere cold and update this review in the future. When I first opened the blanket at home I thought that it wouldn’t do anything to keep me warm. I put it over me and accidentally fell asleep on the couch for a few hours. It was great there too. The small bag that holds it is about the size of a Coke can and this is one of its best features as you can carry it anywhere. Even being this small when stored, it is still a massive blanket that could cover two people if you use it with the short edge going from your chin to your ankles. I’ve tried doubling it up to see if it made me warmer but there was no discernible increase in effectiveness, but that doesn’t matter because I’m really comfortable already. It can be stuffed into its storage bag which makes putting it away easy from your seat. If rolled up, it goes in the bag easily too but this isn’t as simple sitting in a packed plane. I think it looks neater when rolled up; like a neat cylinder. Buy one, it’s great. Also grab a Cabeau travel pillow. From what I’ve read and from using one, they are the best in the world. Together you'll sleep well on flights.
I love these! Perfect for the plane, they keep me warm but not overly hot. They material it is made of does not slide down your shoulders at all. You can truly cocoon yourself in them. And the size gives good coverage-though keep in mind I am 5’1”. I even had to pull it out when we needed an extra blanket in our hotel room. Best part is they roll up easily to fit back in its bag- I do this while sitting in my coach class seat with no problem.
The blanket is very light weight, easy to pack and it is very easy to get it back into its little pouch. I gave the blanket a 5 because it fit my needs and I was very happy with it. Just an FYI, I used it on a flight and found It is warm enough to take the chill off but in colder temperatures I would opt for something warmer.
