I loved everything about this comforter! It was warm and light and soft and no feathers were poking through!! The only thing you should note, is if you have a deep mattress, you will need to get a larger size comforter. I have a queen size bed, but the queen size comforter looked funny because it didn't cover the whole mattress. So I put the queen size comforter on my guest bed which is a full size mattress, then I purchased a new comforter in a size King for my bed! I love it!! :)
I've owned this comforter for almost six months, and it truly is an all-season comforter. It's light enough for summer use yet warm enough for winter. Even though it's listed as dry cleanable, I've washed the comforter in my home washer and dried it with three new tennis balls. It's come out great without losing hardly any down. I've been very happy with the comforter and would recommend it to anyone.
I'm very pleased with the down comforter I purchased. I bought this item with my daughter's recommendation who bought a king-size one more than a year ago. Hers is still fluffy and comfortable as well as warm in the winter .... I find mine to be very comfortable and lightweight for summer use and I know it will be wonderfully cuddly warm this winter.
this is probably one of the best purchases i have ever made. i was very leary about buying a comforter online not being able to feel it or see it in person. i could not wish for a better comforter. i would have paid more for it!!! it is nice and cool yet at the same time thick and warm. it feels like i'm covering myself with a cloud.
Due to the poor loft with this comforter, I would guess that it is truly a mixture of down and feathers. Also, when held up light, the real story emerges. In many of the baffled square it looks like there is barely a tablespoon of down or down/feather mixture. I would not recommend purchasing this product. Spring for the extra few bucks and get a real down comforter from The Company Store.
- How is the quality of the product? Poor quality. Likely a Chinese import.
My comforter arrived a week or so ago and went right into a duvet cover after "breathing" several hours. My comforter looks exactly like the picture shown for the product. It plumps up about 2 inches and makes that nice crinkly sound when it moves around. This is not one of those luxurious hotel comforters that plump up a foot off the mattress. You didn't pay for that. You get a comforter that plumps up nicely-- 2 inches. It fits perfectly in a Queen size duvet cover I ordered as well. Since I have not owned it long, I have no idea how the baffling will hold up. I'd like to be able to write another review in a few months about this product, to let everyone know how it cleans and wears, but unfortunately we don't have that option. Just remember, it looks just like the photograph. 2 inch plump is about all you're going to get. I have no idea how it's going to wear for the winter season..
This comforter loses feathers ALL THE TIME. I'm constantly vacuuming up feathers that escape to the point where I'm tempted to throw this comforter away. I though it was a great deal because of the price. Now I know why it was so cheap. You get what you pay for. Buyer beware.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
- How is the quality of the product? Poor
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? It's what they didn't tell you that matters here.
I have had this comforter over a year now and I am very disappointed with it and am currently searching for a new one. While it does a good enough job at keeping me warm, it constantly leaks down feathers. Whenever I take the duvet cover off to wash, there are feathers all over the bedroom and even with the cover on I cannot go near my bed with black clothes, as they are sure to be covered in white feathers. Very disappointed!
I must have gotten one of the bad ones. I looked at the reviews and they stated that there might be a little loss of feathers, but I am still pulling them out of places that you shouldn't be. I would recommend Overstock for many things, but not this one.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? fine
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. poor
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? was dead on except for the fact that it sheds feathers faster than a bird can
This comforter looks great and is good for not so cold nights. However, when it is really cold, I needed another blanket to get the warmth we needed. The price was good and most times it is okay, but I thought it would be all we would need for any time of the winter.
The down stuffing is inconsistent to say the least. I would hazard a guess that 25% of all the squares were almost completely devoid of stuffing. I thought it just needed to re-fluff after opening but when I held it up in front of a window I could see all the places where there was no down. Definitely not over-sized either. I bought this to fill a king-sized duvet cover the comforter is about 18 inches too small. Back it went.

I have a down comforter now and wanted a new one so I can use my old one for guests. I looked around in stores and online and this is the best value I have found. I was pleasantly suprised when It came in the mail. Like some others said, it does not look as fluffy as it does in the picture, but for the money, I think it is a great value. The cover is soft, the stripes are well placed and add luxury to its show.I live in MN, so the true test will be tis winter, but I am very happy with the comforter so far.I have a Queen size bed and I stuck with the full/queen size. I know there are others who say to order up to a King since the price is the same, but its cut is generous and I found more than enough and I have a very thick pillow top mattress. I would stick to that size if you have a queen bed. I also did not want to have to buy King duvet covers.You will not be disappointed if you purchase this!
This was purchased as a gift for my son & daughter-in-law about a year ago. They absolutely love the down comforter. They said it's warm in the winter, without being too warm in the summer months. Nice weight. Baffling must be good, because the down is not shifting in the comforter, even after a year. We would definitely recommend this product.

Pleasantly surprised, truly! South Texas has had some unusual freezes, no problem and no sweat, we're 'comfy'. I love the 'fluff' of the down comforter, it's like sleeping in a cloud! I bought two King size with Duvet's and feel like I got one heck of a bargain! I just flipped thru the "Macy" pages, and I'm convinced I got a steal of a deal. Quality of comforter coupled with price is amazing, I'm ordering again from Overstock, p.s. and the shipping was fast!
Read some other reviews and was hesitant about ordering. We have a queen-sized bed; the king-size comforter fits our bed the way we like it- doesn't hit the floor, but covers the mattress well (similar to the way it fits in the picture). VERY comfortable. It's extremely light-weight, so I was unsure how warm it would be, but it's VERY warm! Seems to be lightweight enough for those slightly warmer nights too. No feathers sticking out, the fill is evenly distributed. Love the fluffyness, feels like i'm sleeping in a cloud! I would reccommend this to you if you like down comforters!
After reading the positive remarks from others who purchased this comforter, I gave it a whirl and ordered it. I have always wanted a down comforter and felt like there was just so much information to research before you buy one. I am absolutely tickled with this comforter and felt the details provided were accurate in helping me make my decision. It fluffed up incredibly like the picture demonstrates and I didn't notice any odor whatsoever. I put it on my bed the same day and it felt so fluffy and luxurious. Definitely a little warm for me as we leave summer temperatures toward fall, but I can't wait until winter - it will be perfect. I hope to buy a few more as Christmas gifts. You just can't go wrong with this comforter!
This duvet, and others like it on Overstock, are categorized by the thread count of the fabric. That's barely relevant, since most duvets get a separate, duvet cover. While thread count can be a factor, (the higher the count, the tighter the weave) to prevent down and feathers from working out of the duvet, it is LOFT that is the important quality in a comforter. LOFT conveys the warmth factor imparted by the duvet. This duvet is rated at 600 loft which would be considered a summer comforter here in upstate NY. When you hold it up to the light, you can see that the feather/down mixture is skimpy. This would never be enough in the dead of winter for a house heated to 68 degrees. That being said, the value for the price is good, the fabric is quite appealing, and this product is what we go to Overstock for.
My husband and I had the same down comforter for 12 years. We finally gave in and decided to buy a new one after many failed attempts of stiching up the old one. After searching around, we found this comforter and decided it was a find! We spent over $300 on our first down comforter and this one seems to be just as good, if not better!
