I have used genuine down pillows and bedding most of my life--but they have their problems--washing and drying most particularly and overtime they wear out. Recently I started looking to synthetic alternatives which has worked out for the most part. It may be important to note too that while this is not my highest consideration in bedding, the synthetics wash and dry much more easily and quickly, so may represent an energy savings. As for these pillows I purchased each grade of firmness thinking that they would correspond to down firmnesses--not so, these pillows are much much firmer than expected, but so far so good. I am returning the "firm" without even opening them though. It could be that they "calm down" after time, but this is an early use review. The nice thing is they feel clean and I can throw them in the washer/dryer and think they will do just fine and come out clean again and puff up without hours in the dryer like down needs. (Yes you can put down in the w/d and it will do fine as long as you dry it thoroughly--if you have the time, funds, available alternatives, and such an organized life that you can dryclean all your down--this review does not apply to you....) So I think these will work, they are certainly comfortable so far.

I've converted to down alternative pillows over the past year or so and really enjoy the squishy loft they provide. I like some support but definitely don't care for foam (even shredded or memory foam) as it's too firm for my taste. I purchased this 4-pack as backup for guests and we tested a pair when they arrived, and loved the comfort, so are still using them They also fluff up beautifully after sleeping on them, and haven't compressed as inexpensive feather pillows can do. Bargain price for a high-quality set of down alternative pillows, highly recommend if you're looking for a durable pillow that feels much like real down at a very affordable price point.

The picture makes it look like it drapes. Although it is a good product, it is definitely not as good as other down alternatives I have had. It just has chunks of cotton in each pocket. Not down-like at all.

This wasn't really what I was expecting for a down alternative comforter. I've had one before and it had the same feel as a down comforter but this one just feels like a normal fiber filled comforter. Not what I wanted but it works for filling my duvet.

I have always liked these comforters. They are a great alternative to the feather down comforters. Just as warm.

Great alternative to down. We were tired of feathers always coming out of our other comforter. No feathers here. Controls body temperature, never too hot or too cold. Love it!

I previously had a down comforter which was really heavy, but this one being alternative down is so light!

I prefer down alternatives so that I can launder them and don't have feathers poking out of the cover. This one is warm, fluffy and comfortable. I bought 3 of them.

You will not go wrong with this one! I have owned the feather filled comforter and that BIG mess of debris was my first concern! So I went with this down alternative instead and I am beyondddd glad I did!!!! I will tell you this, it does get a little too warm at times but I just kick it aside for a bit and then all is good! The quality is amazing! It feels heavy and the alternative down is filled just enough as you can feel it when you hold it. It doesn't space out like some others said, at least not mine! When I make my bed, I stare at my final product of comforter and duvet cover and it reminds me of a 5 star hotel!! Super happy with my purchase--NEVER going back to DOWN or FEATHER filled comforters! All the comfort WITHOUT the mess. Go for it!
