Ouch! Lots of pokey hard pin feathers crunching and popping out of the covering. The description states DOWN beautiful fluffy Down but this is NOT the case. I'm angry about the misrepresentation but its way too much hassle to box them up and deal with the return policy.

This down comforter is great in the warmth department. It warms up quickly after only laying in bed for a few quick minutes, BUT I'm starting to notice that the down is escaping from the comforter itself AND even through the cover we already have over it. The down is floating around our room and getting stuck in our hair. It's REALLY annoying...It looks like I'll have to spend even more money getting a cover for my comforter. If I had known the thread count wouldn't be good enough to contain these annoying down particles I would have bought something else...I feel it's pointless to have a have double covers to contain this mess..Plus side: warm and fluffs nicely. Down side: irritating escaping down!

The first thing I looked for was if this had a tag. I would have gone back immediately without giving it a chance to fluff. The tag was there and when I read it . . .25% feathers...really? It did seem a little heavy. If this is not a problem for you, this is otherwise very lovely comforter. Wide white on white stripes with a satiny corded detail on the edges. The edge is not baffled...(mine is) and I have to say this is a crisper look and so, a good thing. I received this last nite so it is still fluffing. It does feel full and if I look through it up to the light there is an even amount of down in the squares. The price is spot on but I may dig deeper and spend more for a lighter (no feathers) comforter. If it goes back, that would be the only reason. I will in the future see if the description says 100% down.

Great ... comfy.. relatively warm. As others have said, it isn't a super warm 10" fluffy comforter - but it is not meant to be. Therefore, it is a nice solid value 5-star comforter... So ... why 3 stars? Because this thing sheds feathers like a German Shepherd in a late Texan spring. While the comforter has lasted for a few years - always in a duvet - I guess the shell is not solid enough to hold in the runaways... Am I the only reviewer experiencing this? I have had several down comforters, but never before did I vacuum the bedspread .... more than the bedroom carpet! Every day, there are little feather runaways - as a result, the duvet always looks like it needs a serious dusting! Makes a pass with a sticky hair remover roller an essential task if company is a-comin'! (Actually a couple passes!) Usually it is is just the "large snowflake" look ... but every day there are 1-2 full-size feathers hollering a little Who..."I am free!" At least it is still comfy - if not annoying - or it would be a goner ... So... for me ... I would say only get if you are going with a white duvet cover.

The comforter is great for the cold weather, which i rarely experience, but it is very comfortable in the hot weather too. Also if you dont have a duvet on it will start to lose feathers. I fixed that by throwing it in the dryer.

I normally dont write reviews, but I need to warn future buyers.... The blanket is warm and comfortable, yes. But the FEATHERS KEEP COMING OUT even with a hypoallergenic zipper sheet AND duvet cover I put over it. Can you imagine how many more feathers would come out without the zipper sheet? If you dont mind feathers in your bedroom, hair, and mouth, this is the blanket for you. Needless to say, i need a new blanket.

I have had this comforter for less than a year and I'm buying a different one already. It shed feathers constantly. I have feathers everywhere, on everything. It looked like it would be quality, but it's not.

I purchased this comforter for myself after purchasing similar ones for my daughters, which are great. This one "puffs" tiny feathers into the air with every movement.... each morning, I have "feather dust" on my wooden floors! Now I am looking for a duvet cover to contain it all.

I purchased this comforter a while ago, it was great for the first 6-9 months, I thought I got an amazing deal. Since then feathers have been coming out of it constantly, from everywhere! First they stayed contained within the duvet cover but now they are everywhere and it is impossible to clean. I had to purchase a replacement.

This comforter was very disappointing. I thought it would at least have some fill/feathers, but there was almost no filling whatsoever in each of the squares of this so-called comforter. Don't waste your money. This couldn't possibly keep anyone warm when it's basically just a double sheet!

Dont get me wrong, I loved how warm this comforter was, BUT. With all the feathers that are coming out, if I dont sweep everyday after I make the bed, it builds up fast. So after 3 weeks of trying to put up with it, its now in storage. Other than the feathers sticking all over us, getting in our eyes and nose, and making us itch, the comforter was very warm.

I've had this down comforter for about 18 months now. It has been a complete waste of money. The comforter was great in the beginning, but within 6 months feathers began to seep through my duvet. It has lost it's fluffiness and all the feathers seem to travel at the bottom of the comforter. I'm very disappointed and will not every purchase a down comforter from Overstock. I will continue to purchase their sheets though.

I purchased this comforter 2 months ago with the Hemstitch 400 Thread Count Solid Cotton Duvet Set. When I first got this comforter, I thought I scored. It was so comfortable and it was a great price. It soon became my worst nightmare. DUST! If there is one thing I despise in the bedroom, it is dust. And this comforter leaks feather and dust like no tomorrow. I have dark furniture and there are feathers and dust on it hours after I finish dusting. Unless you like dusting daily, stay away.

I have had many down comforters.... but this one releases feathers unlike any of the others! It's very comfortable but the feathers are everywhere. I have a dark duvet and it was covered in feathers. Annoying!

This is a soft comfy light weight down comforter. I bought it for my son for Christmas. The only problem is he is covered in feathers every time he lays on his bed and they are all over his room. Wish I could make it stop. Am thinking about throwing it out.
Two major considerations when purchasing a down comforter are content and construction. The Federal Trade Commission has standards set that specify labeling procedures for products that contain down. If the label of a down comforter reads 100 percent down, the comforter must contain down feathers exclusively. The same is true if the label reads pure down or all down. Most down comforters are made with goose down, but some may include down feathers from other species of fowl. Look below to learn how to buy a down comforter.
Warm in the winter and cool in the summer, down comforters offer the ultimate in comfort and insulation. Down is the soft, fluffy growth found under the outer layer of breast feathers on geese and ducks, insulating them from extreme temperatures. Down is lighter and more flexible than feathers, which is why it's so popular for use in down bedding. When used to fill comforters, it gives you the ultimate in year-round comfort. If you want all the facts about down comforters before purchasing one, check out the most frequently asked questions about 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.
