        No click and collect for NSW frustrates me as I'm not going to be able to get to the store this weekend. Paying $13 for delivery kinda takes away from the deal..

    Remember it should only be about 10% of your body weight. Obviously there’s some variability in terms of surface area of the blanket, but use some common sense with kids or light adults with/without a disability.

      3.4kg: 91 x 122 cm
      4.99kg: 104 x 152 cm
      6.80kg: 121 x 182 cm
      9.07kg: 152 x 203 cm

      I did some calculations and found the weight per surface area are all similar (about 3 kg/meter square). Since the surface covering your body will be the same, does this mean all these different weights sold will feel the same?

      • +7 votes

        I’d say so. I don’t think it matters too much for most people, other than comfort/preference.

        The reason I commented is that there has been some deaths and injuries when used inappropriately with kids with disability. I could also see this being used as a restraint with frail people with dementia, which wouldn’t be great.

        For most adults who can remove it from themselves if they want to, whatever feels comfortable is good.

      there's a bit of proof (I've read 1 study) that it kinda alleviates anxiety symptoms and helps with going to sleep. kinda feels like someone's holding onto you

      It gives you a false sense of security. As if you're an infant being cradled by your mother.

      i didn't know either, then i bought one for no reason. i actually like it. feels like someone is hugging you. doesn't make it warmer, just more pressure on u. its a pain in the but to travel with, so i just keep it at home.

        Southport (QLD) had both cover and no cover for $39 the girl acknowledged it shouldn't be the case but said they would honour it.

        I happened to show up as another lady was querying if they had more with the washable cover. Otherwise I would have just picked up any.

        I ended up getting a 6.8 wish washable cover :D

      Otherwise got a down doona that are the opposite of heavy, pretty comfortable.

      I can imagine the weighted ones are heavier due to the portion hanging over the edge too.

    Would the 9kg be suitable for 2x 60kg to share on a double bed?

    •  

      I've got a similar sized one and tried the same but found it too narrow

    •  

      They're quite small, not the same size as normal double bed sheets / blankets. I definitely found one per person is better.

  • +1 vote

    If I weigh 80kg, better to go lighter or heavier?

    • +1 vote

      I would go heavier. The weight difference in the blankets comes from the difference in size. The 9kg one is a bit longer and wider and is better at covering your whole body without your feet sticking out during the night.

  • +16 votes

    I prefer one to one ratio. So at 77kg I’m thinking of going all in and getting 8x9kgs so I feel like I’m being ganged on.
