Down and feather-filled products are packaged tightly during shipping. Upon receipt, remove this item from its packaging, fluff gently, and allow several hours for full loft recovery. In addition, products sealed in plastic packaging sometimes have a disagreeable scent because of concentrated natural fibers. A few hours of airing typically removes the odor.
We recommend that this item is fluffed at least once a week to maintain down distribution.

Love this! keeps me cool in the summer and very cozy in the winter!Read More
I always watch for these to go on sale. I have purchased 3 or 4 of these, initially for rental properties. We advertise "luxury bedding" as an amenity. When I get new ones, I rotate the older ones to my house, RV or give them to my children and they are still in use. I have only had one to lose some of it's stitching and therefore the filling got lumpy in a few places. I think they have lasted so long because I use them with a duvet cover and wash them sparingly.Read More
best price great quality looked everywhere.Keeps us plenty warm is the pacific northwestRead More
I liked the comforter and it is nice and snuggly, but after having it for many months the down tends to shift a bit.Read More
I have bought 5 of these all together, for myself and my kids....they are wonderful, it will most definitely keep you warm...sometimes a little too warm ;)Read More
when i got it in the mail I immediately put it in the dryer on fluff because it was very thin, but that didn't seem to help. The cover was extra large for the feather bed too. I held the feather bed up to the light to see how much feather was in each pillow and they weren't even 1/2 full. Taking the feather blanket out to wash the cover for the first time a button fell off. After washing and drying the cover shunk and now fits the feather blanket, but i have to sew the button on and reinforce the others. I thought for $59 it would be a little better than what it really is, especially after reading some of the reviews. .Read More
Great comforter for the price!! i bought a king size for my queen size bed and it was perfect. order a size up!Read More
I have been researching down comforters for about a month and came across this one at Overstock. I purchased a king size down comforter two years ago, but it's too big and bulky. Having lived in Europe, where each person has their own comforter, my husband and I switched. We have a queen sized bed and now each have our own twin sized comforter. These are terrific; not too bulky or hot, yet keep us warm. We live in the Northeast where the temperature has been in the "teens" at night. I loved the fact that they came with the cotton duvet. They are perfect for our needs and would highly recommend them. They not only fit our needs perfectly, but were the best value as well. Overstock had them to us in a week; great service as usual from Overstock.Read More
First I could not believe how quickly my order arrived. Packaged wonderfully! I had absolutely no smell at all. I put the cover on immediately - layed it on the bed (I did order the King for my Queen size bed and glad I did) I pulled the ends in and by days end it was totally fluffed. It is very soft and warm! I could never afford an expensive down comforter AND purchase a duvet cover also....This is a great deal!Read More
I totally love it. It is comfortable, cozy, and VERY warm!!I I am going to buy another one as a christmas present.Read More

Best Fills for Down Comforters
Warm and incredibly soft, down comforters are the height of luxurious bedding. Like all other bedding, down comforters can range from inexpensive to costly. The proof is in the filling. Inexpensive down comforters are filled with a combination of down and polyester or down and feathers. The best down comforters, which are usually also the most expensive, are full of pure, thick down. Take a look below to learn the best fills for down comforters. Hungarian goose down: Hungarian goose down is considered the most luxurious type of down. These extreme cold-weather birds have very thick, almost odorless tufts of down at the base of their feathers. This heavy, long-lasting down is most often used in comforters with a fill rating of 800, which means they can keep a person warm even in cold conditions. Eiderdown: Eiderdown is harvested by hand from the abandoned nests of Eider ducks, which pluck the down from their own backs and use it to cover their eggs. Eider ducks live in cold climates, so their down is thick and heavy. It is used in high-quality comforters with a fill rating of between 700 and 800. Eider duck down is the only type of duck down used in high-quality comforters. All other duck down is usually considered too smelly (and some duck down has tiny barbs) and is used in much less expensive comforters. Grey and white goose down: Grey goose down is used in dark comforters due it its grey color, but it is the same as white goose down in all other ways. Grey and white goose down, which is usually harvested from European or Chinese geese, is the most popular type of down used in middle-price-range pure down comforters. These comforters usually have a fill rating of 600 and above. Hypodown: Hypodown is a mixture of white goose down and milkweed. This all-natural filling is hypoallergenic and much more durable than pure down comforters. While pure down is still considered to be the preferable fill for comforters by most people, hypodown is gaining popularity with consumers who want a longer lasting product without synthetic fills.
