BEDGEAR, a performance bedding brand, recently announced the debut of its all-fabric Performance Weighted Blanket. This product is the latest from the brand in its ongoing effort to evolve the bedding category with proven moisture-wicking and breathable fabric technologies. As weighted blankets increase in popularity, so has the consumer pain point of overheating, which BEDGEAR’s Performance Weighted Blanket directly addresses with its fill, which is comprised of breathable fabric layers for a cool yet cuddly experience. The simultaneously cool and cuddly feel is achieved through BEDGEAR’s Air Flow Certification, a certification that measures breathability by how much air moves through the product, and ensures optimal air ventilation to let the body's temperature naturally regulate.
The exterior of the Performance Weighted Blanket features BEDGEAR’s durable, yet soft Hyper-Cotton fabric technology. With a total weight of 15lbs, the individually-sized Performance Weighted Blanket’s unique fill of breathable fabric layers eliminates an uneven distribution of weight and has no noise, which are two common issues seen in blankets filled with plastic pellets or glass beads. These traditional fills can also cause a choking hazard if ingested by children or pets, making BEDGEAR’s all-fabric design a safe alternative. With a removable and washable cover, the Performance Weighted Blanket is easy to wash and maintain beyond spot cleaning alone.
“Every day millions of people struggle with overheating when sleeping as many have fallen victim to false promises of cooling gels and other treatments which don’t work or fade over time. That’s why BEDGEAR has focused every single product we manufacture on air flow technology to allow for heat build-up to be released into the environment and not be trapped next to your skin,” said Eugene Alletto, BEDGEAR founder and CEO. “The Performance Weighted Blanket is the latest innovation from our company that works to help keep an individual feeling more comfortable and sleeping at the right temperature, while also providing that relaxing, anxiety-reducing feeling consumers seek when shopping this accessory.”
The Performance Weighted Blanket retails for $199 and is now available online and in multiple retail locations across the country, including P.C. Richard & Son, Raymour & Flanigan and HOM Furniture. The benefits of BEDGEAR’s Performance Weighted Blanket are enhanced when coupled with the brand’s line of personalized fit pillows and mattresses, as well as layers of sheets and mattress protectors, to build a complete Performance Sleep System.
