For various reasons, namely entirely too much time spent in academia, I've started making comparison spreadsheets for most bigger purchases. (I know, my husband rightly makes fun of me for it too:-) Point being, after accounting for price, average customer review rating, thread count, and fill power, this comforter is the best that Overstock offers in the $60 to $150 range. It arrived quickly and after one day of airing out, fluffed nicely and all residual smells disappeared. The fabric shell is a high thread count, soft, with a nice stripe design. So far, we've had no problems with feathers poking out. Nevertheless, get a good quality duvet cover -- it will save you money on dry cleaning. The down is evenly distributed and we haven't had any problems with shifting/cold spots yet. It's seems to be very warm, but the temperature here hasn't dropped enough, so I'll update the review again in January. My husband's one complaint is that the comforter's too comfy, making it really tough to get out of bed in the morning (we also have a feather bed -- a previous great Overstock purchase.) Overall -- a recommended buy.
