I comparison-shopped and found that Overstock had the best deal for an all-season comforter. A couple of things that affected my decision: I live in FL, so even in "winter," it's not really wintery weather, which means I didn't need a heavy comforter. I knew I'd be using a duvet cover, so I didn't splurge on a high-thread count for the comforter itself. With those things in mind, this works great for me.
If you are looking for a LIGHT duvet, and want the option to add a nice blanket- this is the perfect all season solution. Alone it may not be enough, but in a duvet cover or with sheets (and possibly a nice cotton blanket) it is fine for our climate. Decent construction, nice balance of filling and well stitched- this came in way under most feather/down duvets and keeps you as warm if not warmer than a traditional down duvet. I have told others to get this if they are looking for a solid layering piece.
I was expecting a lightweight microfiber comforter, and this one WAS lightweight. However this comforter had a strong chemical odor that was not noticable right away; the odor intensified the longer you had it covering you. The chemical smell was suffocating and unbearable after an hour of lying under it. I held it up to the light, and could see a scattering of dark brown feathers (no down, which is white and soft). I don't know what was in this thing, but I returned it immediately. I think it is dangerous to your health!
Okay, so the comforter is everything you want an all season down comforter to be: fluffy, perfectly white, smooth to the touch, easy to fluff, evenly stuffed. BUT I think the fill must be treated with ozone to sterilize it. The comforter smells like ozone and, try as i might (and believe me, I am resourceful) I cannot completely get rid of the smell, although it has gotten less intense over time (I've had it for a little over a month. I am sensitive to odors and ozone is rather noxious so I couldn't conscientiously recommend to a friend. However, I have bought this product before in the past and was in love with it. The first one didn't have a smell or anything. The only thing that made me get rid of the other one was that a college roommate's dog had diarrhea on it.
This was dubbed a feather sheet by my husband. After only a month's use, it is off the bed and replaced with another quilt. Our dog seems to like it, folded in fours for his bed. All the feathers fell to the sides and we were left with the fabric over us, thus feeling more like a sheet than a comforter. I've had this happen in the past with feather quilts, but after a much longer period of time when one would expect wear. This quilt was no longer useable after only four weeks!
Not sure why but my comforter has yet to completely expand. After fluffing every other day or so some of the boxes are filled and the others are completely flat. It looks awful and not presentable. The instructions stated it would take 48 hours to do so, but it has been almost a month. It is noisy as I'd read in other reviews prior to purchasing. Guess I should've followed my first instinct and not purchased it at all.
I'm so very happy with my recent purchase. I live on the Outer Banks of NC and our weather can be very unpredictable in the winter months. This feather comforter is just the right weight when placed inside my duvet. I have ordered in the past from you and have always been pleased with each of my orders. A big thanks to you! Sweet Dreams :)
Great price for a product that keeps you at the right temps. Thickness and warmth as a tyupical comfortor sold with sets -- HOWEVER, this is much more soft! only complaint is that the King size needs to be larger. I you are looking for a budget friendly quality comforter, you will not find anything better.
Now keep in mind this is not going to be a fat and fluffy comforter as it is all season blend. It does keep a person warm and you will not want to keep covered all night. I like the less fluffy comforters and I am satified with this one. It gives a leaner appearance to the bedding which I like. Great modern look with my new duvet cover. I love it!
