Aricove Weighted Blanket is a high-quality blanket that is designed to provide a calming and relaxing effect by applying gentle pressure to the body.
The blanket is available in a variety of weights and sizes to suit different body types and sleep preferences. It is made with premium materials such as bamboo-derived fabric, which is soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic.
Aricove Weighted Blanket has received positive reviews for its quality, effectiveness, and ability to promote restful sleep. The blanket is also machine washable, making it easy to maintain and keep clean. These are the information I get (from the brand) and then I will talk about my experiences of use below.
Aricove Weighted Blanket unboxing – first impression
One thing I liked about Aricove is the case that it comes in. It has a high-quality case that is perfect for traveling or storage. Out of all the other brands I reviewed, only Luxome and Layla’s weighted blanket came with a travel case. That said, Aricove’s case is the most compact, and you can tell it is a higher quality case than the others.
My first impression of Aricove’s fabric was that it was cool to the touch. It has a near-identical feeling to Luxome’s cooling weighted blanket. They both feel the same because the outer shell of both blankets uses bamboo vs. cotton. Bamboo has natural cooling properties that absorb heat and moisture away from your body, making it one of the best materials for hot sleepers.
Visually it has a nice design to it as well. The pattern of the Aricove is different from the squares that you see in a lot of other designs. Aricove has a diamond-shaped configuration, which also helps evenly distribute the weight. It has a nice white color and a grey border outline surrounding all sides of the blanket. Overall I liked the design and thought it looked better than many other blankets I tested.
Materials of Aricove Weighted Blanket – texture and Comfort Level
Aricove is a comfortable blanket that any hot sleeper will love. The bamboo is soft and silky and will keep you cool while sleeping.
Temperature rating of Aricove Weighted Blanket
Aricove is at the top of our list regarding its cooling effect. It performed substantially better than many other weighted blankets advertised as cooling. Luxome’s cooling blanket was close in comparison to Aricove. Both brands have similar cooling properties, and it was hard to tell the difference in temperature between the two blankets.
Overall, Aricove gets a 5-star rating for its cooling effect. I didn’t have any issues falling asleep or staying asleep while using it.
How about the weight distribution?
Another thing I loved about Aricove is the even weight distribution. I noticed almost immediately that it had a very evenly distributed weight. Compared to some less expensive brands, Aricove better distributed the weight throughout the blanket.
After some additional research, the even weight is an outcome of the unique diamond design used to hold the micro glass beads in place.
Many other brands use the same type of square design to hold the glass beads.
I like the unique design of the Aricove, and it works incredibly well to even out the distribution of weight.
How did it feel sleeping with this blanket?
I loved sleeping with this blanket. I fell asleep faster than usual and slept the entire night without waking up sweating or hot. So it wasn’t hot at all, which is perfect for hot sleepers like me.
The blanket has a calming effect that kind of feels like a hug. I also felt like I didn’t move around as much at night, which helped me get a better night’s sleep.
Experience of use – Best for
Overall the Aricove is an excellent choice for anyone that sleeps hot and wants to stay cool throughout the night. I liked how it kept cool and thought it was one of the best in the cooling category.
One of the significant upsides of the Aricove vs. lower-priced weighted blankets is the weight distribution. It has one of the best distributions of weight, making the blanket more comfortable and helping maximize the benefits you get from using it.
I also love that it comes with a high-quality travel/storage case. The case is very well made and doesn’t take up much space. In addition, it is effortless to roll up the blanket and put it back into the case, making it perfect for traveling or easy storage.

What I didn’t like?
As much as I loved Aricove, there are a few things that you’ll need to consider before buying. Firstly, Aricove currently only offers its blanket in one size (48 x 72). Most other brands provide multiple-size options. For example, suppose you are looking for a Queen or King size to fit your bed. In that case, you’ll want to consider a different brand, such as Luxome, that offers a handful of various sizes. Also, if you are looking to use your weighted blanket as a couple, this isn’t the best choice, as you would need to purchase one blanket for each person.
From a design standpoint Aricove also only comes in one color. Most other brands offer at least a few different color options. However, white is your only color option with Aricove. So if you’re looking for a different color to match your bedroom or family room, you’ll have to buy a different brand.
The last thing to consider is that the blanket doesn’t come with a removable cover. This feature can make it harder to wash and keep clean. You can buy a cover separately from Aricove’s website. Still, the bad news is that it will cost almost an additional $80! If you add in the cost of the cover, that will make the Aricove one of the more expensive weighted blankets on this list. However, I didn’t purchase a cover and have had no problems keeping it clean or putting it through the wash.
