I bought the king size comforter and love it. The construction is great quality with good stitching all around. The piping is done just right and give it a perfect look if you were to use it w/o a duvet. The fabric is soft and smooth like 700 tc should be, and the baffle design keeps the down evenly distributed. The size is just right; it hangs over the sides about 8 inches and the foot about 6 inches. I bought a duvet to keep the comforter crisp white and protected as I have an indoor/outdoor cat who sleeps inside and brings in a yard full of dirt at the end of the day and it fit perfectly. I actually bought the duvet 2 inches narrower than the comforter and it fills it out perfectly with no excess fabric on any edge. Perfect! The weight is perfect as well. You don't feel as though it's so heavy you can't move, but you don't feel like you're laying under some inferior light-weight summer throw either. A great purchase.
Since purchase, this has been one of the worst and most maddening purchases I have ever made - and it's not inexpensive! Here's the problem: each of the baffles has one corner where it is not stitched closed - an approximately six inch opening for the down to go wherever it pleases. This causes most of the down to fill up squares around the edges, leaving (quite literally) no down fill in the baffles over our bodies. I called Overstock and was told "it's supposed to be like that. Why is it, then, that I wake up cold, with almost all of the baffles over the sides and bottom of the bed packed tight, really tight, with down fill. Looks like the saddlebags of a camel caravan! Overstock suggest "fluffing occasionally" I have been fluffing, hitting with a yardstick daily, which is an absurd use of my time. It is the worst! If I had anything to do with management at Overstock, I would contact everyone who mistakenly purchased this comforter and offer a proper replacement or refund. But because that does not seem to be in the cards, Caveat Emptor - do not purchase this comforter!
I've just started using this comforter with the cooler weather and learned very quickly that the down floats to the side edges just like all the other cheap brands. The stitching with the box design isn't all the way thru or it's just come loose and in the middle you end up with litle down - a HUGE disappointment for such an expensive item.
I reviewed a lot of comforters on this site before selecting this one & VERY glad that I did. This goose down comforter is well worth the money. It is very, very comfy & QUITE warm, won't need more then this on your bed! The quality of the material is great, very soft, just snuggle right up. I purchased the king for a queen sized bed & it is very plentiful in size, would fit a king bed just fine. If you purchase this one you will Enjoy!
I decided on this one mainly because of the fill power. I like my down comforters to look full and I like being able to see the box stich. The thread count was just an added bonus. After it arrived I could tell that I wasn't getting what I thought just by looking at the bag. After pulling it out and shaking and fluffing it did not puff out as I had hoped. There are some squares that did fill up nicely, but many of the others are quite flat. The fabric quality is nice and it definitely has a smell, but I'm sure that will go away. If you are not looking for an extremely fluffy comforter this might be the one for you. Ratings: Appearance, based on overall look with some boxes looking much fuller than others. Comfort, based on the fact that I thought I was getting something much heavier. The fabric doesn't have any kind of design to it but does feel nice. I still think it was a good deal, but I originally thought I was getting a steal!
This was a beautiful comforter for the first week, then all the filling bunched up at the bottom - of course, by the time we realized this was happening and couldn't be "fixed" the return policy had expired. The feel of the fabric is nice - but definately NOT worth the price!
OK, I did all the research. For the price and the criteria, this duvet had all the right numbers. I was initally skeptical b/c of the mixed reviews, but for the price for pure down, I went ahead and purchased it. Got it fast, it was packed without labels in a plastic bag with no labels as other reviews had stated. I shook it to fluff it and let it sit. The smell was OK to me, just a bit like down stuff I've prevously had. (Now I've had it for three weeks and the smell is gone completely and I never washed it before use.) The fabric is very nice with a nice sheen to it, as other reviewers said. I fluffed it some more...Probably 3-4 of the boxes around the edges are a little low on down (felt like two sheets) and I was annoyed and was going to return it. All the rest of the fluffed up quite a bit. I was still not sure. So I decided to try it for a week before returning it. Thankfully, I was patient. It is amazing. To try it, I put it in a duvet cover and used just the duvet (no extra blanket) and a sheet to sleep under (basically, I took the extra blanket off my bed as I wanted to see how this thing really worked). It was amazing. I was very comfortable all night. I live in Denver, and so we experience all seasons and crazy temperature swings from day to day. I really love it and am very pleased with this purchase. It is actually a bit too warm in a way...if you are hot, you can just uncover your shoulders...I was worried that b/c those few boxes felt seemed empty, that it wouldn't be warm. This is definitely NOT a concern. This duvet will keep you plenty warm! I would but another one if I needed it. And the look is fluffy and nice. So don't worry about those few boxes that seem not as full as all the others, it isn't an issue in the look or the warmth. For the price, this is defintely worth it as other all down duvets will run you a grand easily. This is all soft down (no sharp feathers). Enjoy it :)
I received this with NO product labeling whatsoever, so you have no idea whether or not it is in fact what you ordered. When I tried to put it in the duvet cover, it was over a foot too big. After speaking with Customer Service, they did send me a return label, but I was informed that the manufacturer sends them with out any labeling. Doesn't give me a lot of confidence.
The comforter looks and feels lovely however the down shifts between baffles so that there's no down left on top of the bed and it's all in the baffles hanging down the sides of the bed! So no warmth for the sleepers. This is one comforter that I wish I had not purchased.
The comforter is beautiful looking and the fabric quality appears to be excellent. However, I really doubt that the comforter is fully filled with down. There are many flat spots and the down shifts around constantly. It may be what it promises to be, but it seems unlikely. How does one prove its truly fully filled with the amount of down it promises? Good question!
I have owned 2-3 prior down comforters - most being "feather" down comforters. If you read this comment, please consider this - a "feather" down is different from a "goose" down. The feather down comforter is still warm to a degree, but you feel all the spines of the feathers when you squeeze any part of the comforter itself. The down comforter is the softest comforter you can buy, for it contains the softest part of the goose feather that is located closest to the animal's skin, which means there are no "spines" to feel when you squeeze the comforter - all you feel is soft feathers when you squeeze. Yes, the goose down comforter is the pricest one can buy, which is why I always chose the feather comforters instead. HOWEVER, when I saw the price of this goose (100%) down comforter, I jumped on the purchase. See for yourself- go to your local dept store at the mall and check out what these 100% GOOSE down feather blankets cost, then consider the fact that the percale count on this comforter is advertised at 700, (which means that the cotton fabric is weaved tighter, so feathers will not escape) not the typical 200-300 count (oftentimes feathers do escape) that they come in. When you receive this blanket via mail, it will indeed have a distint odor because IT IS NEW. Let it air out for 24 hrs, then all will be fine. I purchased a queen size comforter and it fits over the edges nicely on my queen bed. This is one of the finest goose down blankets I have located, and the price is good, including shipping charges! You cannot go wrong, this blanket is priced very well, so go ahead and buy it.
I bought this comforter for my Dad who is older and has poor circulation. I wanted him to have something both warm and light, and this comforter fit the bill. I researched comforters from various stores, and this one not only had more fill than the others (40 oz. versus their 28) but it was also at a cheaper price. Based on other reviews here I was expecting it to be pretty flat when it arrived. It didn't look like it had much fill because of the compression, but within a day the fill fluffed up and I realized what a nice comforter it was. It didn't have any initial odor as other people commented, and each section was equally filled with feathers as it should be. I would definitely purchase future comforters from here again, you won't find a better deal anywhere else!
If you sit on the comforter, the down goes completely flat. I tried to "fluff" the comforter but that didn't work. The edges are nice and fluffy but the middle part has gotten flat in about a week! I am disappointed with my purchase. I think the flaw to this product is the box stitching, if it was superior the down would stay in place and not go flat; too bad that the other customers gave me a false sense of hope.
Today when I received this product i was so disappointed. There are 2 major issues with this products. 1) There is no label or brand on this product. I looked on the package and on the comforter its self. There is no label on the item or brand. There is no label to say its 700 fill power or say there are 700 thread count. 2) This comforter is only half thick as my old comforter. My old comforter is 650 fill power and its much puffier and thicker. 3) The customer representative at overstock.com disconnect my chat when I tried to explain this incident. Here is the copy of the conversation: Status: Disconnected Stuart: Hi, my name is Stuart. Stuart: How may I help you? Visitor: I d like to ask a few questions regards to this item Item #: 918019 Stuart: Sure, go ahead. Visitor: is this product made in china and filled in USA? Stuart: I will check on these detais.

After spending so much time to evaluate products and carefully read the description provided by Overstock.com, I ordered this comforter. It was not even close to what the description states. I was not at all pleased and returned it after a couple of days. Sadly, I lost $$$ just for trying this product. It is very difficult to trust what marketers tell you online. I suggest you negotiate a total refund if you are not satisfied.
After reviewing countless product information sites about goose down comforters and reading all the reviews on O, I thought my chances of getting a bad apple on this one were thin. I was impressed by the thread count (nice softness to it), the light satin shimmer the fabric has, what I thought were sewn pockets (preventing bunching) and how "Grand" and fluffy it looked at a great price. Well, i thought wrong! Unfortunately, as various users have said, the feathers on my comforter have all concentrated to the drooping end within a couple of weeks of having it, to which there is no avail. This must mean there are no sewn pockets! I've tried to switch sides and hoped gravity could help, stuck it in the dryer with tennis balls, and tried shaking them back to their place - but no movement! I'm so disappointed I remembered to write this review even though 9 months have passed. Reluctantly I'm still using the comforter because, well, I paid a lot for my budget. Sad in SF.
This comforter was unevenly filled with down, not all of which was "white". Stitching did not secure baffle box to both top and bottom layers which would cause the down to shift. There weren't any labels to identify the product as HOTEL GRAND. I am returning this comforter and will be very disappointed if Overstock.com withholds the return shipping cost from my refund.
I am so disappointed, I've had this down comforter for a little over a year and at first it was awesome. It keeps you warm, through and through which is great BUT it sheds feathers ALL over the place after awhile. Also it bunches a lot and when you try and fluff it back up feathers keep coming out. I'd say it's not worth it and move on...
Some of the reviews I read on this comforter had me worried that I would get a lemon. I have owned comforters in the past and I did a lot of research before I ordered this one. I checked price, type of down, thread count and weight of down that was in the blanket. This one was just as it was advertised. It fluffed up right out of the package and has stayed that way in spite of having a bedspread over it. You can hardly feel it on yourself, but the amount of warmth it provides will keep you warm no matter what your room temperature is my wife likes to keep ac going all night. The price was about one quarter the cost of all the other ones I looked at in department stores an other online company's and I waited for a 15% off coupon from overstock. I made one mistake when ordering, I bought a king size for a queen size bed and because it is oversize nit hang over the sides to much. If u have a queen bed order the queen and I'm sure u will have plenty of blanket. By the way mine had exactly the labels it was supposed to have.
As soon as I opened up the package (plain plastic wrap), which by the way had no advertising of product, brand, style, thread count, size, etc. I knew that this comforter was going to be returned. I immediately noticed that two entire rows of baffles had no down whatsoever. This comforter was advertised as hungarian goose down, but attached content tag states at least 75% down. What is the remaining 25% made of? Feathers were already coming out of fabric. The baffles were sewn properly to prevent feathers from movement, but there was no down whatsoever in two rows. I purchased supposedly same comforter five or so years ago and this one is not the same. Very disappointed.
