I think the picture gives the illusion that the down is going to be thick and warm. It has an extra warmth rating. In reality, it's quite thin. Perfect for summer actually because the material is quite cool. With a cover, it's actually quite warm! I wasn't in love with it, but it definitely kept me warm.
I just received this product today and I was so surprised that there was no trade marks or any label with details on the comforter at all! I am not sure whether I get the correct product since I cannot tell whether they send me the cheaper one or not. How do other people tell whether you get the one you ordered?? I am not very happy with the purchase.
I bought this for my daughter's bed for our cold Massachusetts' winters. It is warm, fluffy, well-made, and she loves it. We've had it for nine months now and it's held up well. I shake it out regularly to distribute the down, as one must with all down comforters.
This comforter was everything that I had hoped it would be.My Mom is 89 y.o. and constantly complains about being cold in bed. She typically has three or four heavy blankets under a heavy bedspread - and still gets cold. This comforter has eliminated her old bedspread and allowed her to sleep with just one additional light blanket underneath. It is extremely light in weight and extremely warm as well. No complaints!
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. . . .
I live in the NE where temps are very cold. This comforter is all you need! I took mine out of the bag, there was no strong off smell that others have suggested and the comforter fluffed up with in a couple of hours. I put mine in a duvet to keep fresh and clean. The comforter so nice it's like sleeping with a teddy bear that is not there. I love it.
A very beautiful looking comforter, but felt a bit stiff for being 600 thread count. Also was not impressed that when fluffing it up on my bed you could see that almost half of the baffles were either empty or had very little down in them. So it is being returnd and hopefully I can find one that atleast has down in each of its baffles! PS...I found out after I purchased it that there is no such thing as "siberian" down. So just be aware of that claim when looking.
I've had this a few years now. It's true what the others say - the down clumps up. But you just have to shake it out / beat it / fluff it. I just read you're supposed to do that weekly anyway. I was slow pulling it out of the closet this year. Finally did, and I can really turn the heat down. It's great!!
