High quality polyurethane and leather combo PU material is used on the exterior of the blanket. PU is a water-repellent material and is easily maintained and cleaned. PVC is used inside and it is a waterproof material that is made up of a soft material with the flex tensile nature for different body positions.

People that are 6’1” tall or under can use the v3 comfortably. And please consider paying about 20 dollars extra for the XL v3 if you are taller than 6’1”. According to the manufacturer you can burn up to 500 calories in a single session with this FIR sauna that also works on your fat cells. They claim that the FIR method is proven to be one of the best and effective ways for losing weight and getting in shape. It is natural for the cells to get activated and metabolism to be enhanced by the FIR radiation as it gets into your skin and muscles and improving the blood flow in your body. Please refer to the Amazon product page for a more detailed scientific explanation.
FIR is also claimed to enhance and clear the gel-like cellulite, which is fat, water and other waste material and debris just below the skin. You’ll experience many times more heat penetration into these cellulites than a regular sauna. It helps your body detox and get rid of toxic chemicals, heavy metals, toxins and radiation through sweating. And up to 20% of the sweat you lose in an FIR sauna is non-water stuff like fat soluble toxins, cholesterol, sodium etc. as compared to the 3-5% in a regular sauna. Your cells are stimulated to release the toxins which are eliminated by your bowel and liver. “Far” on the FIR- Far Infrared Sauna means the infrared waves that fall on the light spectrum. It is a natural part of the sunlight spectrum without the UV rays that are harmful to your skin.
Other benefits include increasing serotonin and feel-good hormones, reducing inflammation, increasing blood circulation, boosting immune system, improving sleep, helping with recovery after a workout, boosting collagen, purifying skin, relieving joint and muscle pain in some cases and more. The timer can be adjusted up to 60 minutes and you can pause between your sauna sessions. There is no odd smell from this good quality sauna unlike some other blankets that can smell like vinyl etc. Taller people can also use the regular v3 but their shoulders may stick out and you may want to put a towel around them to keep the heat in.
It is a versatile sauna blanket that can be used on the ground, carpet, couch, bed and a recliner. Using oils or lotions in this sauna blanket is not recommended as they can make a mess in there. But you are recommended wearing socks and clothes or wrapping a towel around you. You can clean it easily by using a damp cloth, water and soap.
