The duvet quality is what you expect for 200 thread count. It's not very heavy and if you really try, I'm sure you can see through it. I bought this for a guest bedroom, so I'm less concerned about wear and tear on it. My one surprise was the color of the brown. In the picture, it looks almost olive, but it's actually chocolate brown. I suppose I should have read the description more thoroughly, and I wouldn't have been surprised.
