Guys, this just goes to prove that anyone can find a poor quality manufacturer in China. Making a great quality product is not as easy as so many would like to believe. We knew this guy was a fraud from the beginning. We're sad that creating a following was so difficult. If we had a following like this guy HAD, there would be tens of thousands of happy people with our products today. Do your research before investing in anyone here.
I received my blanket in October of 2017. I know this because "customer service" told me so. I like my blanket. However, when I tried to take the cover off to wash it, the zipper came unstitched. When I looked closely at the stitching not only had it been sown crooked but it appeared to have been just basted in. A customer service contact was nowhere to be found but I was able to text John and he gave me the email to customer service. I contacted customer service with photos of the zipper and they said that I could mail the blanket back. I stated that all I wanted was a new cover. They then responded by stating that they had no spare covers as each blanket came with its own. A few days later I received another email stating that since it was beyond 30 days of my purchase they're not responsible for anything. Customer service indeed.
John — are you insane?
Please, please do not waste your money on this project. This has to be the worst run company i have ever dealt with. I would be surprised if you see anything within 3 years and it won't be what you think you are getting.
Hi to producer,
your project look very good but unfortunstely only for backers from US . U am from Czech republic :-(
Eat maggots john
I hope you get maggots in your eyes
Eat shit John
Buyer beware. Do not fall for this. I was a backer of the Gravity Blanket and it was a nightmare. I wish I could do it again because in would have my money in my pocketbook. When you see this many negative comments about a Kickstarter project you should think very hard. If you back this mess contest we didn't warn you when he fulfills retail orders before you get your order or when it is smaller than the size you backed or when you don't get it at all. Kickstarter will not help you.
@Graham Parkinson LMAO you are seriously THE ONLY ONE in all these comments who was even remotely happy with any part of the gravity blanket. Maybe you should actually read them and see how many people got fucked out of hundreds of dollars before you judge them.
Just because you actually got your blanket and your low-standards has convinced you that this project was promoted/managed/fulfilled honestly and that they released a decent blanket doesn’t make it so. There are literally thousands of comments throughout this project, the VAST MAJORITY are negative to downright hostile.
My blanket came very late with a broken zipper and missing/ripped tie-ins to attach the blanket to the cover. Also the filling just falls to the sides of the blanket so there is not anywhere close to even weight distribution. Also I’m 6’2” and the blanket is too small after they changed sizes without telling us. I’ve tried contacting them multiple times in multiple ways, every time they tell me to contact them somewhere else or don’t respond at all. I’ve backed plenty of other kickstarters and never had an experience anywhere close to this. John Fiorentino is a con-man, and should be held accountable.
Last product the blanket great but why can I not get this new one in the UK ?
Come on you offer 50% off but no Uk shipping . Can you not add an option for us pot people this side of the pond
Also can people stop poring on here last product was great weighted blanket which I got quickly and two friends also got quickly
This was innovative and super cool
DON'T TRUST THIS PERSON!!!
Girl, BYE. How can you expect anyone who backed this campaign to trust you again??
You have violated Kickstarter terms and agreements ... I will continue to work until I find how to get you off this platform .. You are a thief and a fraud .. You took millions and only delivered HALF of your orders .. Thousands of people left with no product .. your refused support .. blocked emails .. and continued violations are building up .. you can’t just change the name of the company and vanish ... I printed out and took photos is Kickstarter terms. I can’t believe you have the nerve to try and steal more

You know what?, f**c your self
I second Meesh. Go f*** yourself John.
Go f*** yourself John
I am still waiting for my gravity blanket ordered September of last year. I've tried contacting someone but kept hitting a dead end. Please help. I'm out $160. My husband has severe PTSD and I was hoping he could benefit from this. Someone please contact my email. Thank you.
Dang... people are mad. at. you. lol. I feel bad for everyone who had a bad experience. I had no idea. I bought the gravity blanket and yes, it was a lot later than I was originally told I would get it. (by about 4 months). But I will say that I got the email updates as to what was going on. Then I did receive my blanket and was happy with it. Reading these comments definitely makes me leary of purchasing something else though...
There is absolutely no way I would back this project. You're a scam artist. Fair warning to anyone even considering something from this grifter.
I’m surprised Kickstarter let you launch a new campaign after the Gravity scam nightmare. Backers beware.
Only shipping to US? I would have backed it but I’m Canadian eh.
LOL. How about: No!?
You are trash.
When sending updates this guy is nowhere to be found, selling shit messages you every day. F O
Quite stressful dealing with you, John. No!
Gravity blanket was delivered very late with no explanations or apologies... just silence and even one of them was broken
Now you invite me to an early bid only for US... just take a look to the delivery address of your invitees....
I live in Europe
So sorry Kickstarter is endorsing you
You can always back moon pod for the lowest amount to be able to comment and warn others about your experience. You can undo your backing anytime before the campaign is over.
"Ships only to the United States".
Real shame as I would definitely back - looks fantastic and I really want one!
Any plans for international shipping?
Ready back right now...but will miss the Super Early Bird pricing if international shipping added later.
I wish there were like buttons fir these comments. I honestly have no idea how Kickstarter would allow you to launch another product on their platform... tells me all I need to know about Kickstarter!
I got it, you have a new project. Please stop make more ads here for it now.
Don't support this scam artist!
You have got to be kidding me John. As if ANY of your Gravity Kickstarters will ever come within 10 feet of any of your new projects. You are clearly delusional.
You still owe me a weighted blanket. Ordered 3, only received 2. The 2 I received are are horrible! Worst purchase ever!
What steps are you taking to avoid the nightmare that was your gravity blanket project?
Don't worry, I am NOT buying anything else from you ever, just wanted to see if you had learned anything from your numerous mistakes
The moonpod link takes me to the gravity blanket page
John Fiorentino I hope everything in your life is as big of a failure as this project was for all of us. GFY
Here is how you stop receiving updates from this project. FYI
John, how has the team addressed the logistical nightmares of the Gravity kickstarter?
It really takes some gall when you haven't successfully finished this project to be hitting backers up for a new one. To say the least, your lack of communication and failure to deliver on this kickstarter has been disappointing.
Go to Hell John.
