Quick Summary

Helix Sleep is a mattress and bedding manufacturer that has been in business since 2014. The company currently sells products through their own website.

The Helix Weighted Blanket is filled with high-quality glass beads, which are smaller than plastic beads. Weighted blankets filled with glass beads are naturally more breathable, and generally more comfortable because the glass better conforms to the body than the larger plastic pellets.

The blanket comes with a cover that features soft fleece on one side and sheared microfiber on the other, giving sleepers the option to choose which type of fabric they want touching their skin. The outer cover is machine washable, but the inner blanket is not.

Customers can choose among three weight options: 10, 15, and 20 pounds. Helix recommends that people who weigh less than 125 pounds use the 10 pound blanket, people who weigh between 125 and 200 use the 15 pound blanket, and people who weigh over 200 pounds use the 20 pound blanket.

This is roughly in line with the commonly given guideline suggesting sleepers should opt for a weighted blanket that is approximately 10 percent of their body weight, though people at the lower and higher end of the weight spectrum might want a lighter or heavier blanket.

Helix offers a generous trial period of 100 nights on their Weighted Blanket, along with a 1-year warranty. They also offer a 15 percent discount to active military members and veterans.

The Helix Weighted Blanket is constructed from high-quality materials. The glass beads and inner cotton blanket make the weighted blanket more comfortable than some others. Glass beads conform well to the body, and the blanket is stitched in a way that ensures the weight is evenly distributed across the blanket.

The removable fleece and sheared microfiber cover provide warmth and comfort. The cover’s double-sided construction also gives sleepers options in terms of the blanket’s feel. Because the Helix Weighted Blanket is made with excellent materials, it should be durable, lasting for years to come. The weight range is ideal for people 100 – 200 pounds, and could feel too light or too heavy to those who fall outside of that range.
