I've purchased a down comforter from OS before and paid about half the price of this one and got just that out of it..... This time, I read through all of the down comforter spec's here on OS and finally decided on this one (along with the matching pillows) which has been very rewarding. I am big on comfort in the bedroom and am willing to pay a little extra for luxury. I go to bed every night feeling like I am sleeping in a cloud. Oh yeah, I have had this comforter for almost a year now and have been nothing but pleased with the merchandise!
