It's breathable, it's lightweight, and it's not too short for my king-size bed. It works, and i feel soooooooo much cooler than my old bedding.
This is the second one i've purchased from this vendor. Great color blue. And this fits the bill.
The blanket when it first comes through the mail has a rough texture that softens when you first wash it before using. It's not scratchy. Met expectations for softness and texture.
Medium weight. Fading is significant. This blanket is for me no more than a high-priced weaved tablecloth.
Cons:splotchy after the first wash. There were these pinkish bleach-like discoloration all over.
The smooth side is signifcantly cooler to the touch than a normal blanket or a sheet. As another reviewer said, i do shiny side up and i have it on top of my comforter and it does the job.
It hardly fits a queen. The blanket is slippery. It's not queen sized if it barely covers the top surface of a queen bed.
It seems very overpriced for what it is. The sale techniques used are truly a scam. All other benefits are outweighed.
The return policy is such that once you have slept with the item you can't return. Piling issue is so bad now that i cannnot use it anymore.
The nylon side is cool to the touch, but i think that is the only cooling feature. There is nothing about this blanket that is cooling. It also is not very breathable from my experience.
