This is a terrific value. It has a soft, cozy feel and holds its shape well. It also has that nice "down" duvet weight to it though it's light enough to move around. You'd never guess it didn't cost much much more. We bought the king for our bed because we got the twin for my son and liked it so much. We actually upgraded him to a full size bed but still use his twin duvet. It doesn't hang down the sides but lays perfectly on top. And he couldn't bear to part with it!
This is my first down or down alternative comforter, and I've had it about a week now. My husband and I decided we needed something more cozy than our previous comforter, and we decided we each needed our own comforter so we quit disturbing each other when we roll over at night. We have a king size bed, we are tall (5'10" and 6'4") and we have dogs that we like to cuddle with while we read, so I wanted something big enough for us and our bed and something we could wash. So here is my evaluation of this comforter:
1. It is puffy. Puffier even than the picture. I love it!
2. It is warm. Our house has been around 63 degrees lately (our thermostat is being worked on) and these comforters have been our salvation!
3. It is cozy. It's the kind of comforter that is so thick and cozy that when you lay on top of it you sink into it, and when you're under it, you can sort of burrow in. Our first night using this comforter, my husband said that the cozy factor of our bed increased like 5 times!
4. It is quality. It's not going to fall apart, and given a good cover and normal usage, should last a very long time.
It fits in a regular size duvet cover. I was worried that I would have to spend a lot of money to get a cover big enough to handle this comforter. Not so. And that's actually the first con...
1. It is not as big as the website or the tag on the comforter says. I measured ours and they are 76" wide by 81" long. My guess is that the fabric for the top piece before the stuffing is put in is probably 90" by 88;" then they add the stuffing and it suddenly becomes much smaller. However, it does mean that this comforter fits in a regular sized duvet cover, and we have found that our two queen size comforters are long enough to cover us comfortably, and they cover our king bed nicely.
2. It is loud. It's true. It rustles a lot. We think it sounds cozy, but I can certainly see how it would bother a light sleeper. It sounds quite like an old waterproof sleeping bag does. But again, we think it adds to the cozy factor.
3. It is warm. We live in an area where temps range from 20 below to 110 each year (yeah, I know... what are we thinking!). Last night my husband expressed his concern that this comforter will be too hot in the summers. An easy fix for us - I'll just take the comforter out of the duvet cover, and we'll use the duvet cover by itself (we don't have AC... again, what are we thinking!).
We love the comforters we bought, but I read many of the reviews and was concerned about what might be coming. However, I was prepared to deal with the noise, and I had regular size duvet covers waiting at the house to try out the size of this comforter. If you order it, just be ready for these things - if they'll bother you, don't order it! If you think you can live with those quirks of this comforter, I hope you do order it. We love this comforter, and if there was a way to put 6 stars up for comfort and value, I would have. It's really wonderful and just what we were looking for at a price we could afford!
I admit to being ignorant about the comforter/duvet 'thing'. I stay with a friend in Europe who uses only them and they're great in summer or winter and it's so much easier to change a duvet than to wash a comforter all the time. I talked to a local friend who directed me to Overstock and this particular product. I was NOT sorry and I intend to buy more. When the friend came to visit ME this time, he was pleased with my choice (as am I). This product washes great and Overstock has such a great collection of duvets to go with it.
I am thrilled with my purchase of this comforter, my first on Overstock.com. As with others who go through the reviews, I was a little nervous from the few complaints. Here's my opinion to put some of you at ease. First of all, I've used duvets for some twenty years, so had an idea of what to expect in mind. Granted, those were down. In comparison, this comforter had sufficient loft; a good distrbution of fill; and a really nice bound edge (which some of my previous - and more expensive ones - did not). I've loved snuggling under it. There is, indeed, a muffled noise when moved. I'd compare it to that of a fluffy pillow or crisp sheets, though, not plastic bags (and I'd say a down comforter makes a similar noise, too). Also, I did order a size up - a king for my queen-sized bed - which covers it well. Finally, I always - even living abroad - have used a duvet cover. It protects the duvet, leading to fewer washes (and trust me, it's a lot easier to simply wash the duvet), and does tend to be softer. Besides, in respect to decorating you can switch things up as the mood strikes, instead of having to replace the entire thing. Just sewing two sheets together can give you an entirely new look, if you're so inclined. Anyway, again, a very good experience for me. I'm glad I went ahead with this purchase.
This is a great deal! I was impressed with the fact that it fits well on our king size bed, with enough on each side. So many don't cover well, but this one does. I would recommend to anyone! This is my first purchase from Overstock.com and I most certainly will keep coming back. Kudos!

Very nice feel .light weight but fluffy( in a good way)....not certain how warm it would keep someone in a cold climate but we live in Atl so not too concerned...however I would not recommend this if you have a mattress topper or thick one...this comforter is not wide or long enough ...
The comforter is as described in the description. It size is perfect for our queen size bed. This is the only cover we have at night, keeps us warm and is just a beautiful cover for our bed. I am so glad I purchased this one. I truly recommend this comforter to anyone. Worth the money spent. Thank you
Does this comforter contain any sort of flame retardants or other toxic chemicals? Just learned about how toxic flame retardants are and this will be a purchase for my 2 year old son.
Thanks!gozo on Mar 20, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
No, not that I am aware of. I've had the comforter for four+ years and not had any issues with noxious fumes or chemicals.spicypho72 on Mar 22, 2014
Thanks for the response spicypho72! Any chance you could check your label and see if it says ...meets the flammability requirements of California's Technical Bulletin 117...? Flame retardants usually don't have an odor. If the label contains this specific language, then it most likely has flame retardants in it. I doubt it does, but I want to be extra sure before making the purchase. Thanks!gozo on Mar 23, 2014
Not sure about the chemicals. Just be aware that this is a very heavy comforter if it's intended for a 2 yr old.sofaseeker on Apr 30, 2014
Does anyone have true dimension sizes for the King size comforter? I know it says 104x89, but I saw that some people said the queen size was actually much smaller than it states in the description. Has anyone experienced the same thing with the king size? I want to make sure it is 104x89. Thank you!bmlinar6023 on Jan 9, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello bmlinar6023, with the Oversized 230 Thread Count All-Season Down Alternative Comforter please keep in mind " this thick, cushy comforter " when fluffed (and to what degree) this may decrease the size slightly. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 17, 2014
I just measured it and yes the 104 width by 89 long is accurate. If you have a regular king size bed(not a California) it will fit perfectly with about a foot of overhang on each side.cynthiadd on Feb 7, 2014
The description of this comforter says it's an "all season" but under the "features" section in "products details" it says it is "extra warmth". Does the mean this comforter is for colder temperatures or can be used year round?vmuros on Jan 4, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Definitely for colder times of the year.earringnut02 on Jan 6, 2014
I've only had mine for this winter but I imagine I will have to take it off during the warm Texas summers because it does keep me nice and toasty.kmcnamee on Jan 30, 2014
It depends on how you keep your temp in your house. We like our bedroom cold so we can use it year round but if you keep your room toasty then you will probably kick it off of you in the middle of the night.cynthiadd on Feb 7, 2014
Colder temperatures in MD, where I live. Here I could not use this year round.patn on Mar 22, 2014

Did anyone receive this comforter in just an open, plain plastic bag? It did not have formal packaging. Overstock is sending me a new one, but couldn't say exactly how it should arrive.jillian4444 on Apr 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Plain bag also, not hygienic in my opinion (the box wasn't fully sealed either). This isn't oversized, so I returned.shopperamanda on Jun 1, 2013
Mine was plain; but it was perfect.kaj722 on Jul 30, 2013

yes, plastic bag, then in a box.patn on Mar 22, 2014

What is the difference between baffle box and box stitch?crcoe on Sep 14, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Basically, the difference between the two stitches is in the construction. A box stitch is divided into individual sections to hold the down in place. The baffle box is a more expensive method with strips of fabric sewn inside the comforter to allow for a higher loft. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 14, 2012
