I loved everything about this comforter! It was warm and light and soft and no feathers were poking through!! The only thing you should note, is if you have a deep mattress, you will need to get a larger size comforter. I have a queen size bed, but the queen size comforter looked funny because it didn't cover the whole mattress. So I put the queen size comforter on my guest bed which is a full size mattress, then I purchased a new comforter in a size King for my bed! I love it!! :)
I was so tired of my husband shifting all the covers to his side of the bed while I would cling to a skimpy side piece of the comforter. This oversized down comforter is long enough to tuck in at the bottom to keep it from being shifted and wide enough to hang over a full 12 inches so there is no need for him to pull it over to his side in the middle of the night. Yay! Finally warm and comfy.
I bought my first one to furnish our new home a few weeks ago based on the comment. It turns out an amazing purchase with superior hotel quality and even lighter in weight than hotel down comforters because this one is all down, no feathers at all. It is very quiet at night unlike the feather comforters, and airy while keeping you warm in bed. It's also quite fluffy so it really compliments any nicely colored duvet covers and make you feel like sleeping in a beautiful cloud! I ended up buying 2 more (so I bought a total of 3 of these) for our other guest bedrooms. Eddie Bauer does not dissapoint! I had down coat from Eddie Bauer and this is just like the down coat, filled with very clean down material, with no smell at all. I wish I could give more stars to this product!
GREAT price for a down comforter! I have to say I was a little bummed at how thin it looked when I unpacked it. I fluffed it and it was still flat. After using it for a few nights it got super fluffy and I LOVE it. It does not get too hot and still keeps me so toasty. No lie, I have overslept twice this week because I could not get out of the coziness! Also it is well made. I had a down comforter previously and the ends of the feathers poked thru, not this one! I would be happy with it even at full price.
Bought this hoping to use year round, WRONG! This would be perfect for up north but here in the south it's over kill. High quality, fluffs out nicely, rarely a few tiny feathers floating but nothing to make this a deal break, actually would not hesitate to recommend this to friends/family. Have it stored for now but cannot wait until next winter to put it back on the bed.
I bought the king size comforter and love it. The construction is great quality with good stitching all around. The piping is done just right and give it a perfect look if you were to use it w/o a duvet. The fabric is soft and smooth like 700 tc should be, and the baffle design keeps the down evenly distributed. The size is just right; it hangs over the sides about 8 inches and the foot about 6 inches. I bought a duvet to keep the comforter crisp white and protected as I have an indoor/outdoor cat who sleeps inside and brings in a yard full of dirt at the end of the day and it fit perfectly. I actually bought the duvet 2 inches narrower than the comforter and it fills it out perfectly with no excess fabric on any edge. Perfect! The weight is perfect as well. You don't feel as though it's so heavy you can't move, but you don't feel like you're laying under some inferior light-weight summer throw either. A great purchase.
Very, very pleased with this purchase. I own an expensive down comforter for my bed, and I wanted natural fill for my son's bed without spending quite as much money. The quality of this comforter is excellent. The fabric his heavy and sturdy, the construction is excellent, and I'm expecting the feathers will stay inside (we also use a duvet cover).
Being filled with feathers rather than down, it is a bit "crunchier" than a down comforter would be, but I think this is definitely a great compromise if you can't spend the extra on down. It comes in a relatively small box, but puffs up very nicely. It's heavier than expected, which is a plus in my book.
My only quibble is that it does not come with duvet loops on the corners to tie the duvet cover on. Not a big deal, though--I sewed them on myself in about 10 minutes.
I have to admit, I was skeptical when I ordered this comforter. I went to ***** and looked at several heavyweight down comforters but they were all priced at $350 and above, so naturally I wondered why this heavy weight comforter would be such a steal (even though I love, LOVE Overstock.com). I read a couple of the bad reviews and thought that those instances were probably pure accidental bad quality items and it wasn't worth stressing over, so I ordered one and crossed my fingers. When it came in the mail, I immediately put it on my bed and saw that it was very light feeling, thus perhaps it's not as warm as it claims to be? So that night I put on my long sleeved sleeping shirt and got ready to get up in the middle of the night for more blankets. I should tell you I'm a 2 comforter type of girl. I get cold really easily always have 2 comforters except when it's 90 outside. I live in Seattle, where in the winters it gets to be about 30's most of the time, so not freezing, but it's no Florida.
Much to my surprise, I was actually hot the next morning! This comforter is so warm and cozy. It's like it heats up around you~! It's lightweight quality allows you to sleep comfortably so you don't feel like you're being buried in cotton. Pair this with a comfy duvet cover and you're all set for the Winter! I love, love, love it and think that this is a MUST HAVE for every bedroom!
I chose to wait and use this comforter for 3 months BEFORE I wrote a review, as first impressions of a product don"t always mean quality over time. This comforter is EXTREMELY warm for the amount of weight it has itself. I have kept a cover on it since I bought it as I tend to be a tad perfectionistic about keeping the white cover WHITE! But the comforter itself has an extremely soft&supple material-If I didn't have to worry about washing it, the material is super cozy, alas I opt for a cover! Now the only con is the initial 'down shedding'....if you have EVER owned a feather comforter before, you know that it's inevitable that in the 'infant' years of your comforter, the smallest down feathers are going to make thier way out of the comforter-no matter how high count the cover-these tiny blasted things get everywhere; I am just over 3 months and it's finally slowing down. The total amount shed was probably only a toddler sized hand full of 1-4mm sized down;noticeable only because I have dark plum colored cover&linens-never would have guessed it was even shedding had I not seen them! I have yet to even feel a real feather-the ones that most other comforters have that randomly poke you and you try to grab em&they suck back in---not with this one! Best Buy! The last down/feather comforter I bought I paid three times the price for&had way more problems with by the time 3 months rolled around!
I was hoping, given the price, that this would be a lasting purchase. So far, I am very happy with the overall quality of this comforter. From the quality of fabric, to the warmth and lack of any signs of poor workmanship, this item is exactly what I'd hoped for. Thanks.
I read the reviews before I bought this and everyone said that it was very thin. I guess I didn't know how thin they were talking. This is the thinnest down comforter I've ever seen. Like, half an inch thick-MAYBE. However, I really like it. I put it on my bed right when we got it... I can't believe how warm it is! This paired with flannel sheets is more than warm enough I dont think I will being using a "winter down".
I can't believe my luck with this comforter! Really cozy, perfect warmth level, and the LOFT is heavenly, and STAYS lofty! I've re-fluffed it a couple of times but it really didn't seem to need it - and it just gets better and yummier every day. BUY THIS ONE! What a deal!! :)
I comparison-shopped and found that Overstock had the best deal for an all-season comforter. A couple of things that affected my decision: I live in FL, so even in "winter," it's not really wintery weather, which means I didn't need a heavy comforter. I knew I'd be using a duvet cover, so I didn't splurge on a high-thread count for the comforter itself. With those things in mind, this works great for me.
1.) It's oversized. They are hard to find.
2.) The boxes seem constructed in a way that will minimize shifting
3.) No odor and product tags state that down is sterilized
4.) No feathers - just nice soft down.
5.) the most cost efficient option: it's much better than the 600 fill for slightly more but to go up to 800 fill is alot more money so if you dont need the extra down/warmth this is the best for your money for this brand at the time of this writing
6.) Although the cover is made in China - it is assembled and filled in the USA. This may be important to some.
7.) It can be washed or dry cleaned
1.) However this is constructed - it makes a crinkling noise when it moves similar to the sound of crumpling paper.
2.) Just out of the package it was thinner than I'd hoped but a few hours later and its starting to fluff up. I'd say its about mid-weight-not super stuffed but not completely flat.
3.) The cotton is not sateen so it is not very soft - it's not rough either it's definitely higher quality just not that extra soft feeling you might be hoping for. However-if you are using it with a duvet - and you probably are- the fact that its not super smooth means it wont move around in the duvet cover as much which could be a plus.
4.) does not come with duvet loops but you could sew them in yourself if they are that important
I have already bought one of these comforters as a gift. My friend was so thrilled with it that I am buying one for myself. I love the fact that it's an all weather comforter .The softness of the fabric against your skin combined with the perfect warmth for any time of year. The weight is just Perfect. The comforter is a steal at this price, you can't come near this quality and price ...... even the outlets. I know, because, I am always on the lookout for a great deal!!
Love the size and color of the California King down comforter. I ordered it in the Marsala color so it wouldn't show dirt from our cat. I am very happy with my purchase as I searched high and low for a comforter that wasn't too skimpy. This one I am able to tuck in to the bottom of the bed and there is still plenty of comforter to pull up to my face. The marsala color is a bit more rust colored than a true marsala but it is beautiful and I kept it.
I had read the reviews of this, so I was very much on the fence about what to expect. I knew it would be at the very least be a decent product. I was very pleased that it was more than expected. I order this in a king and queen size, for our bed and our guest bed. I have never been able to find a comforter to fit our California King bed, till now. It doesn't just go to the ends, I have material over the sides which is wonderful. It has just enough of the down blend to keep me warm but not overly so. I have a hard time finding covering to make both my husband and myself happy, he freezes and I burn, usually. This product has satisfied both our needs. I've decided to send this as my Xmas gifts to my brothers and sisters, am that impressed.
I was specifically looking for a Queen duvet that would be close to the same size as a duvet cover I just purchased. Full/Queen duvets are so often much smaller than the cover, but not this one! It is only two inches shorter than my cover so it fits beautifully. And, it is so fluffy! It washed very well, and I didn't see any feathers leaking after washing it. I tend to sleep somewhat hot, but even as this is a level 2, I am sleeping very comfortably under it. It was a great price as duvets of this quality are often at least twice, if not three times as much. I absolutely love it so far!
I wanted a second down comforter for colder nights. I like that it's got more "boxes" than some of the less expensives choices so the down doesn't shift around. I put it in a duvet. It's very warm so it does the job. The only reason I'm not giving it a 5 star is it's a little "crunchy" sounding.
We love this comforter!!! I have never purchased a down comforter before. We really did our homework and poured over the internet for hours and even weeks before we made our purchase. I highly depended on the reviews from other customers on Overstock to make up my mind. Not only was this a fabulous price for a higher thread count, higher fill and baffle box design...It is a far better bargain than any of the department stores can come close too. Most of the down comforters that I have found in other stores were literally half the thread count and fill level-and more than double or triple the price. It looks beautiful on our king sized bed and is SO warm. We live in Massachusetts and even for us, it does the job. I actually think that it may be too warm to use year round, but that is fine with me. It really feels like you are sleeping in a cloud. The first night that we used it, my husband overslept his alarm by 45 minutes! He NEVER does that. My kids all love snuggling into the covers in the morning too. The only issue I have was that it doesn't completely fill our duvet cover, but that may be the actual cover's fault! It hangs over generously on our bed, so I wouldn't doubt that it is oversized. I have not found any issues with the fill being unevenly distributed. Our comforter is distributed nicely. All in all, we are so happy that we made this purchase. I now think that everyone needs a down comforter!
I bought this comforter in king size and medium weight. I have been very happy with it! I am not experiencing any feathers seeping out. It is warm but what I really like is the loft so that I don't feel like I have a ton of blankets on top of my body. It is light enough to keep me from feeling claustrophobic yet keeps me wonderfully warm in the cold weather. This is the first down comforter I have ever owned and I am hooked. I researched a lot of comforters, for months, and chose this one and haven't regretted it. The only thing I will say that is perhaps negative is that now that summer is here, I am finding it is too warm for me at times, but that could be because I am going through the hot flashes. I am considering ordering this in the all-season weight and trying that for the summer months. Very happy!
When the package arrived it was just as described and came in a well marked plastic case. We've had it for a few weeks and keep it in a duvet cover. It's a king size and fits the king size bed perfectly. We fluff it every couple of days and the fill doesn't move around too much. It also doesn't loose a lot of feathers. It provides good coverage and is warm all the time. We don't need any other blankets or covers to stay toasty warm. We're happy with the product and would purchase again if we had another bed.
I absolutely love this comforter. The color is beautiful I ordered the aqua . I want to order a few more and give them as gifts to family members . The comforter was also delivered on time which is always a plus . Thank you overstock. Com
I tried quite a few duck down comforters and didn't like them because they made me so hot. I like a big fluffy comforter, but I don't want to be hot. I already had a goose down comforter and found that even with the same warmth level and fill level as my duck down comforters, the goose down ones were always lighter, warm but not smothering. So that was the feature I was most worried about finding while I was looking for a King size - light, warm, but not suffocation hot. My old duck down comforter used to have me waking up in a sweat every night, but this one does not.
In terms of warmth, this comforter is true as advertised. It is light warmth. I would not even say it is all season, because it's very lightweight. I use it as a second comforter (I use this one and another "all season" goose down comforter) on my bed where it's 64 degrees- personally I don't find this warm enough to use by itself. However, if I do get hot, I can kick off my second comforter and this one doesn't make me sweat at all.
Currently this comforter is covering my Queen size bed and box spring on a four poster bed. My Queen size comforter didn't go all the way down the side of the bed and left the box spring visible. This one cover is up completely, so that's great.
Only disappointment is how flat this comforter is. For the fill weight, I thought it would be fluffier, but it's the same or less fluffy than my 550 fill weight one. However, I noticed that once I put this in a duvet cover (it does not have ties or snaps, I just safety-pin mine in), it seemed to fill out well and looks nice. Since I would NEVER recommend using a nice comforter without a duvet cover (why ruin your investment?), it works out well enough.
Lastly, wanted to mention the manufacturer's tag does say "WHITE GOOSE DOWN" and then 75% minimum down. For whatever reason, the packaging said it was duck down, but it's clearly goose down, both because the legal tag says so and because it doesn't have the heat-trapping suffocating warmth I associate with duck down.
I looked at buying cheaper down comforters but am so glad I paid more money for this product. It is so fluffy and each fully closed baffle is full of feathers which are evenly distributed throughout the comforter and the comforter fabric is soft and has no odor. It arrived quickly; I ordered it on a Friday and received it the following Tuesday. I was worried about it being too warm as I like to be cool at night but so far it has been perfect with temperatures in the 30-40degF range at night and my heater set at 70degF. I bought the king size for my queen size bed as my husband and I tend to pull the queen size comforter off each other and the king size is perfect. It hangs over each side of the bed but still about 1 foot from the ground. This comforter is absolutely perfect and feels so luxurious and fluffy on my bed that I feel like I'm sleeping in a cloud.
ive always had trouble finding a comforter that is perfect but this is exactly that!!!! it fits in my washer and comes out looking new every time.. . . .the only downside is its al lil bit small. . . .if u have a queen size bed u may want to consider getting king size. . . .but other than that its GREAT!!!!
This works great, although it doesn't have tabs or ties. I put it on my duvets and a cover over them (using a piece of ribbon to tie them) and then just wash the covers... not the duvets. It makes laundry a lot easier.
This comforter is super soft. I haven't felt any spines or been poked. I also have noticed very little leakage. I have a zipped duvet cover on it but when I have washed it there was only a few feathers in it. It is a nice weight, not very heavy but also not super light either. I imagine in colder climates it may not be enough but for moderate climates it is perfect.
WE love this comforter. Like the oversized feature, comforter is warm and cozy but not HOT, I truly recommend this wonderful product especially if you life in cold winter climate. We turn our heat down at night but still want to be warm and comfortable.
I love this comforter. It was delivered quite fast. On arrival, the comforter is completely flat. One has to shake it up and after several hours, it is fluffy. It becomes more so after a few days. The quality is very good, also compared with a quality comforter that I purchased from another company. The warmth level is year round. It is comfortable at bedroom temperatures between 64 oF and 76 oF. I would bye this comforter again.
This comforter is like sleeping in a cloud. It took a couple of days to fluff up as down comforters will, but is very soft and really comfortable. Received it in about a week and it didn't smell funny or anything like that. The material isn't very soft, it's almost a canvas feel, but if you have it in a duvet cover, it's just fine and feels very durable.I'm always cold and this comforter keeps me nice and warm at night, but seems to be on the warm side for my husband, who's always hot. I look forward to having this for a long time to come.
Excellent quality, exactly what I expected. HAVE Never been disappointed.The with my many purchases from appliances to jewelry. Service is also remarkable. I have returned a few items and their customer service is very helpful and professional.
It was a little more than we wanted to spend but my husband and I are very happy with our purchase. Getting the right duvet is worth a little extra. This one is super light but substantial at the same time--no weight on the legs or feet. It seems to keep us at the perfect temperature although we have very different requirements. Also, there's something difficult to describe about it that I've never felt as much with another duvet (I think we've had three of them over the years): You just feel really, really cozy when you are under it, you get that snuggly feeling. I've heard of other duvets having an odor--there was absolutely none with this, although we let it air out in another room for a night just in case. NO odor. My husband and I highly recommend this duvet. Sweet dreams!
For a cozier night's sleep during the winter months, discover down comforters from Overstock.com that are renowned for their light weight and ability to keep you warm. Genuine down comes from the soft part of goose feathers underneath the main feather. It's the part of the feather that helps keep geese warm and waterproof. These same properties transfer to down comforters for your bedding. Thin and lightweight down comforters add an extra layer of warmth to your bedding set, while thick and heavy comforters perform well when it comes to insulating you on chilly nights. Down comforters come in every possible size, from twin to California king, and following the care instructions means you get more longevity out of your investment. Overstock.com sells hotel-quality down comforters in various thread counts, colors, and designs so you can mix and match items that go with your existing bedding or create an entirely new bedding ensemble to enjoy in your home. Look for recognizable brands, such as Eddie Bauer, Hotel Grand, Lauren Taylor, True North, Elle, Windsor Home, and VCNY as you peruse your selections. Read on to learn more about down comforters and find out the answers to some frequently asked questions.
Understanding Down Comforters
A fill power rating indicates the warmth of the comforter. A higher fill power indicates a warmer comforter. For example, a 650 fill power down comforter is warmer than one with a fill power of 500. If your house has central heat and you stay comfortable during the winter at 70 degrees Fahrenheit, a fill power of 650 or higher might make you too warm at night. Comforters with higher fill powers, in general, have higher prices. Fill powers typically max out at 1,000, and higher fill powers point to thicker and heavier down comforters.
Types of Down
Manufacturers rely on a few kinds of down to fill comforters. Hungarian goose down goes in warmer down comforters because of the thick feathers that come from the cold-weather birds. Hungarian goose down is the most luxurious down on the market. Grey and white goose down feathers are the most common types used in comforters. Grey down is darker than white, so you may see some color variations with grey down comforters. These feathers come from European or Chinese geese, and they're used in comforters with fill powers of 600 or higher. Some of the cooler down comforters have goose feathers mixed with milkweed to maintain natural fibers.
Thread counts of outer covers in down comforters are important because of the nature of the feathers. Each feather has a point at the end that might poke through the cover. A higher thread count means a thicker outer cover, and the outer cover can protect against losing feathers due to holes or shifting. Higher thread counts also produce a thicker, smoother, and gentler feel against your skin while protecting you from feather pokes.
Colors and Aesthetic Design
Typical down comforters are white to let you mix and match bedding sets. However, manufacturers often create matching sets in the same colors or patterns. Stitching leads to diamond patterns, squares, or stripes in terms of the design of lines on the outside of a comforter for an added touch. The stitching also keeps the down intact. Baffle boxing is a special type of stitching that makes a square shape across the entirety of a comforter.
Versus Alternative Down
Down comforters are warmer than down alternatives of the same size and weight. Down alternatives are more expensive due to the fact that geese used for down are farmed and easy to access versus the manufacturing processes that go into synthetic materials. Natural down comforters have better insulating properties compared to down alternative.
Getting the Most Out of Down Comforters
Down comforters come in all-season, extra-warm, and medium-warm varieties. All-season comforters provide insulating properties for any time of year and have a fill power of 200 to 600 that prevents you from overheating in the spring and summer. When you want all-season comforters to be warmer in winter, you might need to add a thin layer to your bedding ensemble. Medium-warm comforters with a fill power between 200 to 700 are better for warm months and indoor temperatures of 65 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Extra-warm comforters are heavy-duty varieties that do well in the winter but may be too warm for the summer. These down comforters work for temperatures below 62 degrees Fahrenheit and have a fill power of 700 to 1,000. Keep in mind that heavier fill powers indicate heavier weights and thicker pieces.
Most down comforters are machine-washable, although their care tags might have special care instructions. Because these items are large and bulky, consider putting a down comforter in a load by itself. Comforters soak up a lot of soap, so you should run the rinse cycle twice to make sure all of the soap gets out. Use the gentle cycle on the washer followed by a low heat cycle on the dryer. Throw a couple of tennis balls into the dryer to help fluff up the comforter and to prevent it from entangling itself during the dry cycle. It might take a few days for the comforter to return to its normal fluffy state. For spot stains, use a spot treatment and soak it for a few hours with stain remover or a mild soap.
Comforter bags offer protection and proper storage when a down comforter is not in use, such as when you don't need extra-warm comforters in summer or lightweight comforters in the winter. These bags are specially designed to keep down comforters aerated, free of mildew, and fresh. Always store down comforters in breathable material, making sure to avoid plastic and synthetic materials that do not breathe.
Down Comforters FAQ
What kind of down comforter is the highest quality?
Thick, heavyweight down comforters with luxurious Hungarian goose down are higher-priced due to the amount of materials in them. Larger sizes, such as those for king-sized or California king-sized, cost more than comforters for smaller-sized beds. Down comforters with higher thread counts are considered luxury, and prices tend to increase as thread count increases.
How do down comforters insulate against the cold so well?
The natural properties of the goose feathers create the insulating power of down feathers. Stitching across each comforter keeps the down in place to prevent too much shifting. The loose structure of the feathers helps to trap air inside the comforter, keeping you warm and well insulated.
What care instructions should you follow to keep comforters in top shape?
Spot clean stains on down comforters, then allow them dry. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for care. Because down comforters are so bulky, wash and dry them separately from everything else.
light as a feather
if you like a down comforter that is as light as a feather, yet keeps you perfectly warm....search no further.
Worth the cost, excellent product
The down is in channels and does not shift or shed tiny feathers.
Light and warm!
No other blanket is needed to stay warm and cozy! And, it's "light as a feather!" :D
Perfect weight, just don’t wash and dry in the dryer or feathers/down start to escape.
