I am very happy with the quality of these blankets. Bought 2 to keep for emergencies in each car. Very large & thick. Yes they had a horrible odor upon arrival. DO NOT OPEN THE SHIPPING BOX IN THE HOUSE!! I opened the box upon arrival outside on my deck. The smell was like everyone else has said. STRONG! I threw them over the rail of my deck & forgot about them for 2 weeks. Through pouring rain, sleet, & snow. Chicago's finest February weather. Two weeks later on a sunny dry day, I walked out there to check on them & they were great. Smell is completely gone!! They still feel nice & soft. If you can get past the first few weeks, these are an unbelievable buy. [...] Wish I would have gotten a few more.
