The Hush Iced 2.0 Weighted Blanket is a cooling blanket designed to improve sleep quality and reduce anxiety. It is made with a 100% bamboo cover that is cool to the touch and moisture-wicking and is filled with glass beads that are evenly distributed throughout the blanket.
The weight of the blanket ranges from 15 to 30 pounds, with options for both adults and children.
The Hush Iced 2.0 Weighted Blanket is engineered to provide a cooling effect, making it well-suited for sleepers who run hot or who use weighted blankets in warm weather. This is the information I get (from the brand) and then I will talk about my experiences of use below.
Hush Iced 2.0 unboxing – first impression
The Hush Iced 2.0 is a premium cooling weighted blanket with many different weight and size options. The fabric is 100% bamboo, and the filling consists of microfiber and glass sand. It’s one of the more expensive options you can buy, but overall the quality is excellent.
The first thing I noticed about this blanket is that it is incredibly cool to the touch. When you take it out of the box, you’ll notice the cooling effect. It has a similar feel to other cooling blankets that we tested, using bamboo as the outer fabric.
Hush has a smoother texture than the competitors because of the included removable cover. Most other brands do not include any cover, so the overall surface isn’t as smooth. However, we love how Hush includes a cover that is easy to remove, wash, and put back together.
Another feature that stuck out to me was the weight distribution. The Hush has a very evenly distributed weight. It makes a difference in the overall effect you get from the blanket. It has one of the best, if not the best, distributions of weight.
Materials of Hush Iced 2.0 – texture and Comfort Level
The Hush Iced 2.0 has an excellent weighting effect. It is comforting and kind of feels like a hug. However, there are no areas of the blanket that feel heavier than others. Each section of the blanket has an even weight distribution.
Since Hush uses viscose bamboo, the material is cool to the touch. The exciting thing is it even stays cool for an extended period.
The texture of the bamboo cover is very smooth. I would compare it to a set of silky bed sheets, so you will love the Hush Iced if you like that type of feel.
I enjoy how comfortable this blanket is. As far as overall comfort, I would give it 5/5 stars. Compared to the other cooling bamboo blankets, this is the most comfortable because of the silky cover. Most other bamboo cooling blankets do not have a cover.
Temperature rating of Hush Iced 2.0
When I tell my family and friends about weighted blankets, usually the first thing they will ask me is, “aren’t they hot?”.
So, how do I respond? I bring out one of the weighted cooling blankets and let them try for themselves!
I bring this up because I let my friend try the Hush Iced the other day. The first thing she said was something like, “Wow, how does this stay so cool?”. She’s an incredibly hot sleeper and was surprised by how cold the blanket was. So I would say the Hush Iced will be comfortable for most hot sleepers.
Is it the coolest weighted blanket I tested? No.
Even though it has a significant cooling effect, a couple of other weighted blankets did feel a little cooler. So we’re going to give the cooling effect of the Hush 4 out of 5 stars.
How about the weight distribution?
One feature that’s pretty unique about Hush is that they use glass sand instead of glass beads. All the other brands we tested (except for Nuzzie) use glass beads. The micro-glass sand makes the weight distribution of this blanket phenomenal. I would give Hush a rating of 5 stars in this category because it was one of the most evenly distributed that I tested.
How did it feel sleeping with this blanket:
Once you put on the blanket, you’ll feel almost instant comfort and relaxation. Every night that I use the Hush, I feel more relaxed, and it always seems to help me fall asleep faster.
I also didn’t have any issues staying asleep. I never wake up sweaty or hot and stay comfortable throughout the night.
I’m a hot sleeper and could sleep most nights with this blanket. However, I’d probably prefer another weighted blanket on scorching nights or skip it altogether and use a typical bed sheet.
Experience of use – Best for
This blanket has a lot of benefits and a few drawbacks. The key features of the Hush are the even weight distribution, silky removable cover, and cooling effect.
The Hush Iced is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to invest in a premium weighted blanket. You can tell the difference in materials and design compared to many lower-cost options. The overall weight distribution is even, and it’s a very comfortable blanket that will last for years to come.
I would also recommend this blanket for hot sleepers, as it does stay cool and comfortable. It isn’t the coolest option I tested, but it does stay cool throughout the night. If you are looking for the coldest weighted blanket on the market, I would recommend skipping the Hush for now as there are options that feel cooler such as Luxome.
- Cooling effect: 4/5
- Comfort level: 5/5

- Weight + size variety: 5/5
- Color option variety: 5/5
What I didn’t like:
There are only a few things I don’t love about the Hush Iced 2.0.
I would say my biggest concern is the price point. It’s the most expensive option out of any weighted blankets I tested. Hush offers many benefits vs. other weighted blankets, but I just wish the price point was more affordable.
If you’re a first-time weighted blanket user, you might want to invest in something a little less expensive at first to make sure that you like weighted blankets. Then if you decide you want to invest in a premium option, buy the Hush at that point. But, on the contrary, Hush does offer a 100-night risk-free trial and interest-free financing.
Another thing I don’t love about the Hush is that it doesn’t come with a travel case. Other lower-priced brands include a travel case, so you must purchase a case separately if you decide to travel with your blanket.
