I'm 'baffled' at the other reviews for this. I just received it, and the thing is SO thin. It's advertised as 700 fill power, one would think that have 'some' fill in it. Entire baffle boxes feel empty. The entire thing doesn't even feel as thick as a blanket. It's going back for sure. It's a joke. They should discontinue this thing for SURE.
I should have returned this comforter when received, since it was delivered in a No Name clear bag without any labeling and the actual label on the comforter did not state the maker or that it was actually a 500 Thread Count Down Comforter. This comforter is more like a Down Alternative, which I could have purchased locally for $20.00. Since this was a Christmas gift, I just found out this comforter does not provide any real warmth, because whatever filling that is in it lumps up in one area, which then tells me the stitching is fake too. If this was truly a 500 Thread Count Down Comforter, then I would have no issue, but this comforter is an embarrassment and whoever the seller is of this comforter should not be advertising it as an actual 500 thread count DOWN comforter, because that is false advertising. I have never had an issue with Overstock items before, but this one is an issue, since I have now gone out and purchased a REAL down comforter. BUYER BEWARE!
I have been purchasing things from O for the last 2 years now. I have bought sheets and a couple of duvet covers previously and have been more than satisfied. I am very disappointed with this comforter. It's extremely thin and has way less fill than it claims to have. Also the edge of the comforter has this weird little nylon rope thing that I have never seen on one of these comforters before. It makes it look cheap and as soon as it snags on something it will unwind. The duvet I bought for this comforter is a lot thicker. I am going to return this back to O.
I have had down comforters before, and was dissapointed with this one. In the comforter's defense, I didn't have it out of the box for more than 30 minutes before I decided to return it, so it didn't have a chance to "loft" out. That being said, though, I returned it because the baffles had so little down in them, most of them felt like I was feeling fabric on fabric. The baffles around the edges felt more full, but in the middle it was completely flat. Just not what I'm looking for. It wasn't awful, but certainly not what I expected.
I have ordered a few down items from Overstock.com and they have been absolutely wonderful products. This one is not one of them. It's flat, lifeless and looks terrible in a duvet. I tried fluffing it up in the dyer, which helped minimally, there are just simply not enough feathers. I can see right through the fabric. I do not understand how a company can have such poor quality control and inspection policies in place, which allows some people to get a wonderful comforter and others to get two sheets of fabric sewn together. I wouldn't recommend this product, unless you're feeling really, really lucky.
disappointed! feather runs to other boxes cause some boxes seems empty and has no feather; my other down comferter has no this situation. They said this is normal....NO Way!!!

I purchased this item 9 months ago. I recently started noticing that it was not as warm as it use to be. Last time I washed my duvet cover I paid closer attention when placing the cover back on the comforter. All of the feathers have moved outside their square (sewn in) positions and to the outside squares on the comforter. There are no longer many if any feathers in the center of the comforter. Please do not waste your money on this item. I am extremely disappointed. I thought purchasing this item would last longer than some of the other options on Overstock. I am looking into the warranty to see if this item is still covered.

While this down comforter had fairly positive reviews, I wish I would have listened to the negative reviews. I'm returning this and getting a refund. The decsription and quality of the product do not measure up. No thank you. I'd steer clear and put your money to better use. Also, didn't really like how the comforter came in a clear plastic bag with no identification packaging whatsover. Don't even know what kind of blanket you are actually getting. Very disappointed.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color looked exactly as it does in the picture.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is terrible. Arrived flat with about an inch of thickness. Waited a few days to see if it fluffed out. Barely, maybe to an inch and a half. Not worth the money at all.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Inaccurate description regarding fill - some of the boxes barely had any down in them.
This was a HUGE diappointment. There were several places on the comforter that were more full and looked good and SEVERAL places that had NO DOWN AT ALL!! I fluffed the comforter for a week and no difference at all. This is my first return to Overstock, I have been pleased with all of my other purchases. Do not listen to the description of this product, listen to the reviews, there are now a couple of people who are just as diasspointed as me.

So I've been using this comforter for about a week now. It's VERY thin, so the picture above must have layers upon layers of blankets underneath it. It might be alright for a hot summer, especially the ones here in New York...but it's October here, and it's already dropping below 50 degrees. This comforter does nothing for those cold nights. I sleep with wool socks on, thermals, sheets as well as an expensive quilt I had to buy to go over the bed. Save your money for something of quality. Oh, and I gave it two stars rather than one because it is somewhat soft.
I have been a big fan of overstock for lots of different needs in the past. I looked over many review and thought we'd found a good comforter. After all most people are giving this a 4 1/2 star rating! The comforter I received was too thin, and not at all up to the standard that I thought I was getting. If this is your first comforter, you might not know any better. For somebody who is looking for a really nice comforter though this isn't it.
The comforter looks as in the photo, but much much thinner. There is no way to find out the manufacturer and the actual quality of this product. The attached label says that it has minimum 75% of down, Made by ----, cover 100% cotton, filled and finished in USA, shell made in China. This is all information.
After reading the reviews, I decided to risk buying this comforter. After all, hundreds of people liked it and I might get lucky. Unfortunately, the item that arrived was one of the flawed ones. Two of the squares contained no filling, and they were right in the center of the comforter, so I had to return it.
