I always wait at least a year until I write the review to ensure the product holds up. Well, this one definately does! It is great, luxurious fabric, has alot of down fill, is warm, and has worn very well. It still looks brand new. Great value for the price.
I read about this soooo may times that I felt I needed to make a comment: True baffle boxes HAVE OPENINGS in them for the down to shift and it is customary to refluff your comforter regularly to fluff and redistribute the down the way you like it. So if your comforter is empty in the middle, CHECK OUT THE DIRECTION THAT THE OPENINGS IN THE BAFFLES RUN. . . they are directional and lined-up inside. IF YOU SHAKE THE COMFORTER IN THE WRONG DIRECTION IT WILL NOT REFILL.When you are sure what direction the openings in the baffles run, reshake your comforter FROM THE EDGES and going the RIGHT DIRECTION to refill/redistribute the down. I hope this helps some folks. . . .
At first I thought I got the lone sewer who knew nothing of down management when filling the baffling. The majority of the down was sewen into the baffling that hung over the bed (3+" fluff). There were five center forward panels with very little down, less than1"fluff. The unit was returned and a refund granted. I then tried again and returned that unit as well. Again the majority of the fluff/down was in the baffling hanging over the bed. One center panel, 2nd row from the top, only fluffed up to about 1/2". I need the fluff/down over me and not along side the bed. I will try again but with a different manufacture. Kind of makes me wonder about all those 5 star ratings. Sure not the same quality of what I slept under when stationed in Germany.
I've been using this comforter for 2 years. It's extremely warm and overall I've been happy with it. However, the box stitching is starting to come undone so now the goose down is bunching up at the end of my bed and on either side. Every week or so I have to shake the comforter out so the goose down gets evenly spread throughout. It has only been 2 years but I just thought the stitching would last longer - and I have only dry cleaned it once!
As some of the others have stated, this comforter generates a lot of heat, and you don't need any other blankets to keep warm. Take it from a person who wears socks to bed to keep warm plus two blankets. By the middle of the night I usually have to remove this comforter from getting too warm. It looks nice and fluffy, I gave it a 3 because all squares do not have the same amount of fill, some are more full and others are flat. It is light and feels nice and soft. Smell: Yes there is a smell that would not leave, even after airing it out for a week or more. It still has an odor to it. I deal with it because of the softness and it keeps me so warm. Size: If you have a king size pillowtop bed like I do, do NOT expect this comforter to drape over the sides and ends like it does in the PHOTO, it will not. It barely goes over the edges. Overall I love the warmth and feel of the comforter, hate the smell, size (too small), and uneveness of the fill in the squares. Because of this I do not use it to dress my bed during the day, only pull it out for warmth at night. Hope this helps.
the fabric is very high quality, but it is misleading to label this comforter as 650 fill. i would gadge it more aroudn 300, if a lighter weight comforter is what you are looking for, the quality is high. the dimensions of this comforter are also narrower than others, so if you have a higher mattress, then expect that it will not be wide enough to drape, at all, over the sides of a queen bed. better to consider this a twin size.
For various reasons, namely entirely too much time spent in academia, I've started making comparison spreadsheets for most bigger purchases. (I know, my husband rightly makes fun of me for it too:-) Point being, after accounting for price, average customer review rating, thread count, and fill power, this comforter is the best that Overstock offers in the $60 to $150 range. It arrived quickly and after one day of airing out, fluffed nicely and all residual smells disappeared. The fabric shell is a high thread count, soft, with a nice stripe design. So far, we've had no problems with feathers poking out. Nevertheless, get a good quality duvet cover -- it will save you money on dry cleaning. The down is evenly distributed and we haven't had any problems with shifting/cold spots yet. It's seems to be very warm, but the temperature here hasn't dropped enough, so I'll update the review again in January. My husband's one complaint is that the comforter's too comfy, making it really tough to get out of bed in the morning (we also have a feather bed -- a previous great Overstock purchase.) Overall -- a recommended buy.
The comforter looks and feels great - UNITL you use it a few times. The down has already settled in different parts of the comforter and that leaves spots where there is little to no down. The last comforter we had took more than a year to begin to separate like this, and this one has done it in less than three weeks! Very disappointed with the quality. The fabric cover is 600 thread count, and has a nice feel to it, but that's the best thing I can say about this one. I am VERY disappointed, especially after having spent so much money on this gift to my husband!
After a few days of use: Pros - Material/fabric quality is excellent. Stiching appears good and is holding up. Down has great fluff and warmth. Quite a bit of down inserted. Good to very good price. Cons - Most down is located in the outer baffles of mine. A handful of baffles in the sleeping zone are lightly packed. So one person has less down than the other. This is a waste of good down. I probably just got unlucky with the lot pick. If it wasn't for this deficiency I would have given this review all 5's. Even so, this purchase was still a very good value. The current price is even lower now than when I purchased it (by $30). It appears to be about $25 to $150 cheaper than comparable down comforters I've seen in stores (from my purchase price). I'm a thorough shopper and I would purchase it again for the this price.
I'm glad I bought this comforter, it is warm and light. However, I am a bit disappointed in one thing. I bought this particular comforter because the Overstock product information states that it is Made in USA. Actually, it is assembled in USA of imported materials. I don't know if that would have affected my decision to buy, but I want to let others know.
Overall, I'm satisfied. I think it is worth the sale price, but don't be misled by the listed price. That simply can't be for real. The quality of the fabric seems to be good, but isn't the soft type. It almost feels "plasticky" compared to our 400 threads bedsheet which is truly soft. Also, not to complain but just for information, this is a pretty thick and warm comforter, which can either be a good thing or bad thing depending on your personal preferences. I wish it were about 10 to 20% thinner. Our bedroom temperature is maintained at a relatively cool 62° (Fahrenheit of course), and it feels a little bit too warm sleeping in this comforter.
Bit wary after reading the breadth of reviews. Seemed like it was hit or miss, with some down on sides only, etc. Well, mine came with one seam edge unfinished, so down feathers were falling out. Not willing to risk something else poorly made with a replacement duvet, even if the seam edge was complete. Would rather pay more for good product, for it is something I plan on keeping for long while.
I really liked this comforter when it arrived. However, with just light use (guest room), the stitching between comforter squares has come unstitched and the down is piling up on one side of the comforter only. The stitching has let go in multiple areas. The quality of the cover is great, but the comforter is no longer usable.
After the first night I realized I had to buy a duvet cover to keep the feathers at bay ($70.00). Two months after purchasing this down comforter, there are no more feathers left in the center of the blanket. Basically $**** later I am still cold at night. Don't waste your money.
With all the great reviews, I ordered this comforter. Since day one, it has been shedding feathers considerably. Each time I change the cover or shake out the comforter, I have feathers all over my room. Considering that the comforter came in a generic box with no labels, I get the sense that a lot of the different comforters are really the same generic one, and they change from time to time. My friend ordered the same comforter a year earlier, and her's and mine are nowhere near the same one, and hers does not shed. I guess they started selling much cheaper ones. I called overstock, and they said there is nothing they can do, as it's after the 30-days. I was hoping that the shedding would settle down after a few months, but no luck. And now it's too late and I'm stuck with this thing. This gives me even more reason to shop at ***** as they have an unconditional return policy. It would have been better to pay a little more there. Not the best experience for my first overstock order.
This comforter is so warm! Shipping was fairly quick. There was no smell at all, which I was very pleased with. It took about 1 day to really fluff up, but all the down has mainly spread out, does not seem to be lumping in one place. It is starting to get colder here in Chicago, and I am sleeping at night in shorts and a tank top, very cozy and warm. Good quality and a great price. I would not hesitate to purchase this again or recommend to anyone.
This is a lovely state of the art goose down comforter. It arrived 4 days after I purchased it! I will place it inside a duvet cover but it doesn't really need one because the fabric is very nice and does not leak dust or down. I have been using down comforters for 25 years and this is really the nicest one I have owned. The size is Full/Queen and it is more than adequate for my queen size bed. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Overstock provides excellent service.
