We recently stayed at a beautiful resort in the desert, and on the bed (on top of the top-sheet) was a very lightweight down comforter. When we got home I decided to see if I could find something similar - a layer of bedding that is somewhere between a sheet, a blanket, and a comforter. I did, and this is it. It's the perfect weight for summer when you just want something lightweight on you.
It's down, it is prickly.... I'd save my money and get something of a little better quality. I haven't washed it yet so I can't comment on durability, but I am not really impressed with this item and feel as though I could have done much better.
There is very little down in the comforter and what down there is only stays in the outter edges of the comforter. It's basically a comforter of down-less squares, thus it doesn't keep me warm. Might be good for the summer, but I'm disappointed with the product. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
I've had this comforter for 6 years, and love it. It's light weight, which I need living in S. FL where summer weight is required year round. So, when we got a new King size bed, it made sense to buy the exact same one. Our old Queen bed had a deep, plush mattress, and it really wasn't wide enough, but our new Eastern King mattress is only 9" deep, and the comforter fits it perfectly, w/ enough over hang to reach the bedskirt.
Perfect weight for summer time. The King size is ideal for our King size platform bed, might be too short for taller ones. Plus it is dry-clean only... I missed that in description, I would of bought a duvet cover that I could pop into washer, for easy cleaning
I am super happy with my purchase! I was very uneasy about buying this at first just because of the few negative comments people left, but, in the end I made the right decision! This down comforter is very warm and would be good for all seasons, its not too heavy and fits perfectly in the King duvet cover I recently purchased! Definitely a great buy for the low price that it is!
I am giving this an excellent rating because it is exactly what I expected it to be. It is a light to medium weight comforter that I can use year round in North Carolina. I always use covers on my duvets, so I don't intend to launder it very often. Great deal on a nice product.
