I had ordered a no-name duvet from another online company and after that order sat around with no movement I decided to give Overstock.com a try... Boy am I glad I did. This duvet was advertised as appropriate for all seasons and as I live in So. Calif I decided to give it a try. It has just the right amount of loft (fill) for our climate. It is beautifully made and makes that pleasing comforter sound that I remember from growing up in Chicago. Prompt delivery - It was delivered to the west coast a day sooner than the start of the delivery window. Size - It is exactly the right size for my over-sized duvet cover and I won't have to deal with a lot of dead space in my duvet cover.
I love how warm this is and cozy but the issue I have is that its terribly lumpy. The squares are really big so the filling lumps into a ball in each one and it makes for a very lumpy, uneven looking bed. There were two spots on it when I recieved it but I just turned the comforter spot side down. Not sure yet if they will come out. For the price though I am ok with it.
Upon opening the box, we didn't expect a whole lot. The queen size comforter came stuffed (not even folded) half wrapped in a clear plastic bag. We took it out and shook it up a bit; it fluffed up quite nicely and fit perfectly in the undersized KING size duvet cover that we use on our queen platform bed. It was 30 degrees overnight in Austin, TX which is EXTREMELY rare. We slept like babies with the comforter and cover only. While the presentation could have been better, the size and quality worked out wonderfully. *We've only had a day so I can not vouch for long term performance or how well it stands up to washing.... but out of the box and on the bed you couldn't ask for more at this price point.
I wanted a medium weight duvet for our king sized bed after ordering one last year that was too heavy and warm. This duvet fit the bill. It's not too hot when the heat is on. The reason that I did not give it an excellent rating is that the duvet is loud. It sounds like a paper bag crinkling every time you move. While I surprised myself and found that it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would, I would have preferred a quieter duvet. I do wish it was mentioned in some of the reviews. In any case, it is made of cotton and it is in a duvet cover and the weight is ideal.
I never thought this comforter would be as warm as it is for the price, but boy was I wrong! It is so nice, and warm, and thicker than I even expected. I live in South Texas, and this is great on our cold nights! Really worth every penny I spent!
It was the only comforter I saw that fit in my over sized duvet cover 108 x 94 and I was thrilled the loops were available to hold the corners in place and I did not see this information when I took a chance and made the purchase. Thank you.
I used to cover with three blankets--since I'm cold all the time. I now only use this comforter--it's inside a duvet, but it is so warm, that's all I need. I read other reviews that complained about a rustling sound...there is a slight sound, but I like it! It is just the sound of the thick cotton cover bending. If anyone has ever slept under real heavy 100% cotton sheets--it's the same sound. I really like this product. I've never owned a REAL down comforter, but this one is good so far....warm, light, fluffy, fills out the duvet perfectly, no empty spots in the comforter, all in all, a really good deal. If I had more beds, I would purchase one for each bed. When it came out of the bag--there was absolutely no smell---which is great, so I just put it right on the bed without washing. Haven't washed it yet, but I'm sure it'll be fine.
This is a great "warm" rated down alternative comforter. In fact, it is so much like a down comforter, you would hardly believe that it is not. It has the same feel and weight as a down comforter without the typical allergens associated with real down. Some of the other down alternative comforters are light weight and not very warm. However, that is not the case with this product. It is not light weight and it is very warm. I bought this on a special sale and am waiting for the discount to return, at which point, I will order two more. If you like the feel and weight of down....you will like this product. AND....it is washable....although I have not washed it yet to comment on the wash-ability.
