This feature is essential for both comfort and safety.

This product shows as a 5.0-star user review, but to be fair, it has only one review. I still rate this item top because of the sheer number of features and quality of production. Let us consider these features. First of all, it has a large coverage area. There will be no parts of your body uncovered and subject to drafts. For comfort, there is a high and low-temperature heat settings, and for safety, there is a built-in thermostat that will switch off if the blanket is overheating. It is a beautiful looking blanket that would not look out of place on your car’s back seat. The material has a soft, warm feel and allows breathing, so you will not end up drenched in sweat.
