What's the difference between the Reviv Blanket and Reviv Plus?

The Reviv Blanket is our original design, measuring 60"x80" which is equivalent to a standard Queen size blanket.

Many of our early supporters were interested in a King size... so we designed one! Reviv Plus is the answer to this need, measuring 76"x80" which is equivalent to a standard King size blanket.

How do I choose the right weight for me?

Reviv Blanket is recommended to be about 10% of your bodyweight. For example, if your weight is 150 lbs, the 15 lb blanket will be a good choice for you.

At the end of the campaign, we will send out a survey directly to all backers' emails. In the survey, you can fill out your shipping address, contact information and you can choose the weight and color of your choice.

When shipping is involved each countries have different laws, tax regulations, and custom fees.

If you and your behalf have a big weight difference what weight should you get?

This might be a bit tricky when your weight difference is far part. It falls down to which between you like it a bit lighter or which person likes it heavier. But for the sake of an example if your wife is 115 lbs and likes the blanket a bit heavier and you are 185 lbs and prefer the lighter blanket. You might meet in the middle at 15 lbs Reviv Blanket and we suggest the King size.

What is the size good for a children?

As for parents we do consider the facts that many parents tend to see their kids out grow many of their clothes and other accessories. With that said we suggest the 8 lbs Queen size where you can use it as it is or with the cover where the blanket will have a lighter weight per square foot distribution. But the best part is when you fold the queen size Reviv Blanket to a 40in x 60in which increases the weight per square foot would be perfect when they get older and heavier. You can stretch out the life of their Blanket as they get older and heavier. With the bigger size you can also use the Reviv Blanket of your kids for yourself.

This warranty does not cover damage caused by accident, improper care, negligence, normal wear and tear, or the natural breakdown of colors and materials over extended time and use.

How can you ensure equal weight distribution of your internal micro beads? Will each "square" on the blanket be filled, and if so, won't the beads all move to one corner?

The solution to this is to use high quality, thicker thread for our quilting and use a better stitching style. And, to really make sure the glass beads are equally distributed, we added a layer of poly to hold in each square that will balance all the movement of the beads.

I don't want the 2-sided cover. Can I still get my Lyocell Bamboo Cover?

Yes, absolutely! The 2-sided cover was introduced because of the the overwhelming request from our subscribers and the stretch goal is the upgrade option for backers who prefer the velvet cover. However, if you don't prefer it, you will still receive the Lyocell Bamboo Cover.

Why is weighted blanket dimension the same as the mattress?

The reason why the weighted blanket dimension is smaller is to maintain the therapeutic benefits. The full pressure must remain over the body of the user and not spread over the entire bed.

If the bulk of your blanket is drooping over the sides of your bed, there won’t be enough mass on top of you and you may as well be using any regular old blanket, duvet or quilt.

For example, if you place a weighted blanket of 20 pounds with these queen-size measurements over your entire bed and hanging over the edges, gravity will naturally pull at least 30% of the overall mass of the blanket down to the ends, taking the necessary force off your body.

This will result in reduced pressure effects from your weighted blanket, and it could even be quite uncomfortable too.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://reviv.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
