Like being enveloped in a fluffy, soft cloud. The blanket is so soft and warm, it feels comforting. It's not heavy, but has a nice weight to it, without being stifling. The hood keeps my head warm and stays in place when I pull the strings to tighten it. There are fluffy, pom-poms at the end if each string so it doesn't get lost. It's a great deal, especially for the price. I would definitely recommend it.
