Welcome to Weighted Journal
The Ultimate Weighted Blanket Resource

Weighted blankets - we are all about them!

We offer the most comprehensive Weighted Blanket Reviews and resources on the market today.

All our weighted blanket reviews are unbiased, un-sponsored, and as objective as possible – we are all humans, after all.

WeightedJournal.com thoroughly reviews and tests each weighted blanket we receive. Each review is written after personally testing each weighted blanket for a week. It is a very time-consuming and tedious process, but it allows us to be as objective and true as possible about each product we put to the test and review afterward.

We don’t accept sponsored reviews or posts – that is not our mission. Our mission is to put, if possible, every weighted blanket on the market to our standard testing process and see which one ticks all the boxes – the one we can wholeheartedly recommend for you.

There are so many products on the market – even more on Amazon – so it is tough to choose a weighted blanket that works for you, and it is made properly as well.

We don’t have companies paying for our weighted blanket reviews – we are an independent source, and we sometimes make a small commission if you click through and buy one of our recommended blankets – there is no added cost to you either way.

We also link to the original weighted blanket manufacturers as well – we always believe it is best to buy from the source, hence supporting small businesses and individual entrepreneurs.

What Goes In Our Process?

Each review is written by us after thoroughly testing each product for a week.

To write the review our authors have to spend a week with each weighted blanket to get a better feel for the product. We test the comfort level, the weight and feel of the heavy comforter, how cool or warm it feels, does it have any negative effects, and so on.

Our reviews are not only positive – we are not afraid to put a bad review if we really feel that the weighted blanket is not on par with the competition. For example, we are not fans of the  Brookstone blanket anymore – quite a few issues there as you can see in the updated review soon to be posted – quite a few reports of the filling going to the lower end of the blanket, the fabric showing signs of premature wearing and a few more issues like that which we are not afraid to talk about – we are not paid by the companies we review.

Why trust us with your weighted blanket?

Well, that’s a tough one. We are NOT really health experts for sure. My wife I both suffer from anxiety and insomnia spouts and while researching potential cures and reliefs we came upon the idea of weighted blankets.

We decided to get one but it was REALLY HARD to choose one due to the sheer amount of products on the market, including weighted blankets for kids.

We got one of the cheapest ones, didn’t like it, returned it, and got a Gravity – off the Kickstarter campaign too. It was such a relief we decided to start this blog and educate people about weighted blankets, review the best of them and even review the individual products that are most popular and HELP YOU decide on which one might work best for YOUR particular situation.

We made a promise when we started – never get paid for a review and never put out a review for commercial purposes only. So we decided a week or two is enough to go through all the pros and cons of a weighted blanket, review each product individually, discover all the positives and negatives and get enough experience with the blanket to be able to get an opinion on it.

Basically, we spent a lot of time sleeping under all kinds of weighted blankets and we are already able to spot pretty easily a bad product from the bunch. If you have a bad experience with a weighted blanket please do let us know – we can probably help you resolve it.

We really hope we explained everything about our weighted blankets process and if you have any questions or concerns please do get in touch through our contact form.

Looking forward to hearing from you
