I bought this because, at the time, it was the cheapest set on sale. I lucked out in a major way (in both price and availability). I'm loving the duvet cover! Its soft, comfortable and seems durable. The same with the pillow cases. I'm being completely honest when i say I'm sleeping much better now that I have this. Added plus: laying on top of it while watching football is my new favorite thing. I don't even care that that sounds like a weird paring.
