I read the reviews before I bought this and everyone said that it was very thin. I guess I didn't know how thin they were talking. This is the thinnest down comforter I've ever seen. Like, half an inch thick-MAYBE. However, I really like it. I put it on my bed right when we got it... I can't believe how warm it is! This paired with flannel sheets is more than warm enough I dont think I will being using a "winter down".
Perfect Price, Great product! Partner and i love it. We find it hard getting out of bed from being so darn comfortable with this on us! Being in South Florida I have been weary of buying one due to being afraid with the heat. This thing is great with the AC cool @ night like I like. Now I just need to find the right duvet covers! :) Shipping took a bit but I think because it came from CA.
You have to give this blanket time to puffy up. When it first arrived I was very disappointed with how thin it was, it looked like 2 thin sheets. After 3 days it puffed up and it¿s very warm. It is not as puffy as it looks in the picture. This is a great down blanket and you can¿t beat the price!
Very saftisfied with the quality for the price I paid! My husband says it's perfect, he tends to get very warm as he sleeps, and this comforter is the perfect temp for him. I could use a little bit more warmth, so I add a light blanket to my side. Come summer, though, this will be the only comforter on the bed. We live in a maritime climate, so the warmest night here would be 60 degrees. The comforter covers the mattress well, if you're looking for a king that covers the box base also, choose another of larger dimensions. If a down comforter of good quality that isn't overly warm is what you're looking for, this is the one.
I purchased this down comforter for my teen-aged daughter, and she could not be happier with the product. It has the appearance and feel of a more expensive comforter and is the perfect weight for our southern Ohio climate. The full/queen size fit perfectly into a duvet cover which came from a different company. I was also impressed with the quick shipping (just standard--nothing special) and the fact that the comforter was wrapped in plastice to protect it from the elements. (This measure was tested as the box sat for a few hours on our porch in the rain. The box was partially soaked, but the comforter was perfect!) This down comforter is very nice quality--at a very comfortable price.
I have been researching a down (alternative ok) comforter for almost a year now. I was looking for one that is lightweight (since I live year-round in Florida) and has all sewn sections (to help keep the materials in tact). I read all the reviews and decided on this one. GREAT CHOICE! It is exactly what I was looking for ... warm, soft, cuddly, lightweight and just plain perfect for this climate (of course, we keep the air conditioning running 24/7). Although it is dry clean only, I am confident that keeping it inside the duvet cover I also bought (full/queen) the comforter will stay fresh. As for the packing smell? I opened it up, fluffed it, spread it outside for an hour, refluffed and put it on my bed inside the duvet. No smell and VOILA!

This comforter has one MAJOR problem. The outer shell which is advertised as 100% cotton has some kind of plastic coating on the inside. It rustle, is stiff and simply not what one wants if they expect a 100% cotton shell. There are numerous complaints and feedback to Overstock and yet they continue to advertise this product incorrectly. I would not have paid the advertised price for a non-all cotton shell. I have previously purchased other comforters and am very happy with them.
I've been needing a new comforter for a while now, so I decided to buy one from overstock since the prices are always so reasonable. A few of the reviews said that this was more of a "down blanket" since it wasn't fluffy enough, and when it first came in the mail. i admit it was a little anticlimactic. BUT, I tossed it in the dryer with a few tennis balls for 15 minutes and it came out soft and huge and fluffy. LOVE IT. It's pretty, too. Very elegant looking and perfect by itself with a few throws draped over the end. Very warm, not too heavy, and i haven't noticed any down leaking as of yet. VERY happy with this comforter.
I waited anxiously for this to arrive. I'd selected two down comforters with the intention of seeing which one was better. This beat the Royal Velvet Milan hands down for a similar price. This does not dissappoint. The fabric is much softer even at only 233 threads(feels silky against the skin) and there is no crinkle of feathers since it is 75% down (the Royal Velvet Milan is 85% feathers and only 15% down.) There has been no shedding of feathers/down which is a definite plus. There was also no "natural odor" when I opened it. I was able to use it the first night.At first I thought it might not be warm enough ( we are near Chicago and the Hawk is here.) so I added another blanket. My hubby and I were kicking off the comforter at night. I plan to use a duvet cover since it is dry clean only and our puppy loves to sleep with us.Don't let the thinness of this fool you. It is a GREAT buy for those who don't need a weighty blanket for warmth and who prefer soft luxury. I plan on buying a few more for the kid's beds.;-)
I ordered this to replace a ten year old down comforter that I felt had lost it's loft. After recieving this comforter I decided that my ten year comforter isn't so bad after all. I feel like I should have listened to the few negative reviews instead of trusting all the positive ones. The fabric is so noisy and it is an extremely thin comforter. Some people said they put this thing right on their bed without a cover..... I can't even imgaine how someone could do that. It's not even pretty. It looks and sounds like one of those white mailing envelopes. I live in Florida and a lot of people from Florida gave it a great review. It's not even summer yet and this think is WAY too hot. As a Floridian I think I may be able to stand sleeping under this thing 10 nights out of the year. I sent it back, gave my old one a good wash and dry and now I'm a happy camper again.
This was my first down comforter purchase. I had read the other reviews before ordering and found the comments about the low loft accurate when I unpacked my comforter. This was a plus for me because I live in a warm climate and don't like the puffed marshmallow look you sometimes get with high-loft down comforters. The box stitching on the comforter is very nice because it keeps the down from shifting and clumping. The cover is also nice even if it is a fairly low thread-count. Upon use, I found I slept cozy warm under this comforter and was very pleased that it didn't feel heavy on top of me. It's in the linen closet for the summer now, but will be back in use on my bed next winter again. Very satisfied with this purchase.
For the price- I bought two of these thinner down comforters so we can double up in winter or use just one in summer. Ran the whole thing through the washer and dryer last week after having it over a year adn it came out perfect! Now I know it's safe to wash, I will wash it more often.
I purchased one of these very recently and am not happy with the quality of the product. The fill was not done very well. There is one complete row of baffles that has hardly any feathers in it at all and then there are a few baffles elsewhere on the piece that are super full. Wish that the fill was more evenly distributed throughout the piece.
I am thrilled with this comforter. It's just perfect and fits in my nice duvet cover nicely, giving the proper amount of warmth - without being too much. It's great to pair with a blanket and soft sheets. It's not a heavy comforter, but light with warmth due to the down. Very very happy with this purchase and I'm extremely picky! I'd recommend getting a nice featherbed too. You feel nicely sandwhiched between the two and so cozy. A great set of bedding is so worth it - you spend 1/3 of your life in it! :)
I should have purchased more..and gave as gifts. I was very happy w/ the comforter

I have had this comforter for years and just love it. I have a couple of duvet covers and it is so easy to get into both of them. Love that it is a medium weight so that I can use it year round and not get too hot in summer.

I have never ever been more pleased with a purchase in my life. It was exactly what I wanted and expected. The other reviews were helpful in that I didn't want a big fluffy comforter but I loved the down blanket I slept under at a hotel and although the hotel sold them I went with Overstock for the price. This is the best blanket made. My husband agrees. If you want a down blanket, not a comforter, you can't beat this. We want to go to bed earlier and earlier just because we love the blanket. Thanks Overstock!!
