It has the proper amount of down and was very affordable.

I carefully read all of the reviews before purchasing this item and wound up deciding to give it a try. The reviewers who commented on the thinness of the comforter and the patchiness of the down within the baffles were right on. Hold it up to the light and the down is very very unevenly distributed among the baffles. For my purpose (which was to add a layer of warmth to a guest bed) I decided to be lazy and keep it vs. returning it, but if I were looking for this to be the comforter on top of the bed I would think twice. No one has slept under it yet so the verdict is still out on how much actual warmth it will add.

I have had this blanket for a few years now and no matter what i do i cannot redistribute the down (not like your supposed to be able too anyway.) Dead in the middle there is little down but the edges are super fluffy, so not evenly distributed. Its a chance your either willing to take or are not. Otherwise the fabric is soft it sheds a tiny bit but not much and has the stays for the duvet. I ordered a king for my queen bed just so i can have plenty of over hang :)

My daughter is very happy with this. I looked high and low for one that wasn't an alternative, had the right amount of down filling for the lightweight and warmth needed and did NOT have that "plastic" inside that 'crinkled" on a few I ordered and sent back.

I bought this Comforter in 2006. Truly worth every dime. I've had it for 8 years and it is in as good condition as I bought it. Easily washable (if you have a large capacity washer & dryer). Fluffs perfectly in dryer. I have bought many duvet covers to protect it and to easily change the color of my bedding. Very warm. You will need nothing else on your bed. This may be too warm for some. I live in Maryland now, and pretty much have to kick it down to the end of the bed. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this comforter.

I have an old feather bed and the feathers were always escaping. With the extra cover, the feathers stay where the belong!

Great down comforter that is warm and great for cold nights. Not as fluffy as it appears in the picture and is hard to get unwrinkled.

There is no better down than white goose down...and sure enough, this does it! The comforter is well constructed, sturdy stitching to hold the down within the squares. We are very satisfied and will be ordering another one for my son and his new bride!

I've had many down comforters in my lifetime and this one is the best one to date. Keeps me toasty warm in winter and not too warm in the spring. It is lightweight. And I've had no problems with feather/down 'leaking' out of it. A very good quality especially for the price. When it first arrived, it did seem to have a 'plastic' odor, but I think that came from the packaging and after airing it out for a few weeks, it was fine.

I've been searching EVERYWHERE for a king sized down comforter to fit my pillow top king sized mattress. I've read every review of every comforter available on the internet. I may have taken a gamble on this comforter as there were some negative reviews but the gamble paid off! Granted we only got the comforter yesterday but it fits on my bed and looks like a normal sized comforter!! I immediately put it in a PB duvet (as they come in king/cal king to fit the oversized comforter) so I can't speak to the softness of the actual comforter- it felt fine though. It's perfectly fluffed and not too hot or too cold. I really recommend this product. The only negative thing I could say is that I did see some feathers floating around as I struggled to get it into the duvet but I take that as a given with a down comforter. Let's just hope it lasts!

this is a very nicely made very white down comforter it has some nice stripes that you really can't see unless up close one thing I must mention since it is an all-weather do not expect that this will be extremely warm I use it on top of my bed spread now for the November for December weatherand will be very happy with this in the fall and spring but it's not heavy enough for the cold winter nights

It's light, bright and oh so warm! I was hesitate about buying an item that goes on my bed and I sleep under because I like to touch and feel a fabric first. But !OH! how pleased I am with my goose down purchase! I have a full size bed. I bought the King because I wanted the comforter to cover and hang ALL THE WAY DOWN - and it does! It's airy and light but keeps me warm on cold northern winter nights! When it first arrived, I took it out the packaging and let it air out for 2 days and I fluffed it every so often. It made the difference because it was a bit flat and had an industrial smell when I first remove it. I used a linen mist spray on it. I'm more than happy with the thread count, the quality and the price!

I own both a Medium Warmth and Extra Warmth Hotel Grand 500 thread count comforter. I would recommend getting pay a little extra to get the Extra Warmth one. The only complaint with comforters in general is that you should probably expect at least some feather leakage. If I was to buy again, I would look for a higher thread count.

Finally found the perfect one! My husband is always very hot and I am always very cold. This is the perfect weigh where he is not sweating at night and I am not freezing. Another important factor is that the length perfectly drapes over our king size bed and the square quilt design ensures the right distribution of the down evenly on the comforter. Excellent purchase. Thinking of getting the twin size for my boys once we get their new beds.

I bought this down comforter to replace an older one that I planned to move to our spare room. I wanted a new one that would mirror the fill power of the one being retired. I found this on sale for a really good price. It arrived in perfect condition, and is exactly what I wanted. Warm and very soft. I like the oversized aspect; it fits our queen bed perfectly. Very good value!!

.......which is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to clear out my closet of all excess blankets and comforters, so I decided a good lighter weight down duvet would be the answer - and I was right. I live in NY, which is currently at approx. 50 degrees tonight. I do have an extra throw under the duvet to keep my feet warm, which I doubt I'll need in the summer with the A/C on. And this particular duvet is large - 90 x 98", which fits my queen sized bed just find. I have been using it for about 2 weeks now, and there are no feathers flying around. I'm quite satisfied.

I was shopping for an all-season, lighter weight down comforter because the one I already had was too hot. The weight of this one is exactly what I wanted! I'm giving it 4 stars because the fabric is more "crinkly" and louder than I expected it to be, especially with a higher thread count than many others I saw. Other than that, it's as-described. The size is good, the fill is thin (but even), and it didn't have a terrible smell when I unpacked it.

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.

The blanket is very good quality for the price. I think the fill power is perfect for the Las Vegas climate and would recommend this product for someone looking for a med temp blanket for the desert climate. It is a very good quality blanket at a great price.

Warmth & luxury wrapped into one comforter. Looks beautiful & is cushiony soft, I love to wrap this around me on the cold Upstate NY nights.
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.
