This down alternative comforter surpassed my expectations. My apartment has heat included and tends to run warm, so I wanted something that wouldn't make me too hot. I don't overheat with it, but it protects me from the draft when I have to crack the window to control the temp in my apartment. Perfect!!! The microfiber fabric is smooth and appealing; it isn't stiff and doesn't "crackle" like cotton sometimes does. The filling is very even---I've had down comforters with pockets that are practically empty, but this one's delightfully uniform. No cold spots! I absolutely love the down alternative, too---no feathers poking out of the cover! My mom got a lightweight down comforter from a catalog a year ago, and this one was 1/3 the price and every bit as nice. Exactly what I needed.
