This is my 3 heated throw and this is by far the best. It is very plush compared to other brands, edged and finished well. The wires and nice and thick to heat evenly. If you get "Too hot" turn it off and it cools extremely quickly. It does take a minute to heat up, but I prefer it so it doesn't shock your system. The remote has been the easiest to use. It's not clunky, still big like all the other brands and it smoothy changes temp and timing. Highly recommend and now trust Amazon Choice products. I would definitely purchase for a friend, it would be a great gift.
