I was disappointed once it arrived to see that the cover was polyester, and not cotton as described; wish that the product description was not contradictory. So although it will likely be a bit warmer than expected for a FL winter evening, especially with a quality cotton duvet cover, it is still a decent value overall.
First let me say I never write reviews but I had to for this comforter. I had previously bought one from Overstock.com but it was medium warmth. Living in S CA, the medium warmth was wayyy too hot. I finally decided to replace it with this one and it is PERFECT! Thin, but not too thin. Get it if you are looking for a lightweight comforter!
i purchased this comforter to go with this duvet cover: http://www.overstock.com/Bedding-Bath/Cotton-Sateen-500-Thread-Count-Duvet-Cover-Set/647848/product.html?CID=208011 in both descriptions it states that the size is 102" by 86", that is why i specifically purchased these two items together. i had noticed that "king size" measurements on overstock vary from item to item. so i did my research and made sure to order a comfotrter and duvet that had the SAME king size measurements in the descriptions. however, these are NOT both the same size. there are several EXTRA inches of duvet on each side of the comforter. now i have the hassle of having to pack them back up and return them. ugh =(
For what I paid, it was above expectations. It's a perfect comforter for everyday use. I give it 5 stars because it's worth the cost and with free shipping and zero taxes its a steal.

I am very happy with this comforter!. I bought it to use with my duvet cover. I was using my old comforter and it was bulky and lumpy. This one lays very nicely and it was easier to get into the duvet. It is plenty warm for us. I'm very pleased with my purchase!
Purchasing this down alternative lightweight comforter was indeed a great idea. It arrived in a timely manner and is perfect for our requirements. Warm and toasty without heavy weight. I had been searching local stores to find one such as this--Thanks Overstock!!
I'm from Houston, TX and had purchased another down alternative comforter that was much heavier and it was way too think for the Houston climate. I purchased this one and it fit perfectly into my existing duvet, plus it is light enough for all year round in Houston.
This is a great comforter for a warmer climate. I have always loved my down comforter but noticed I was getting way too hot at night! I finally decided to go with a lighter weight and it is perfect.

I got this to have a lighter weight comforter available. I have a huge down comforter I use when the mercury hits those sub zero temperatures, but when its in the 30s 40s and 50s i still want something to snuggle under, and this is perfect. I was surprised at how breathable it is, given it is not down. it is well made, just fluffy enough, and with the addition of a nice 300- 400 thread count duvet cover from overstock, i look forward to going to bed every night. under this comforter is the best way to end the day. And oh yes--- where else are you going to find a KING sized comforter for under $**??????
