I knew when I ordered these that I was ordering a very average product, but that is what I wanted. When it comes to "down", normally you get what you pay for. These pillows are very nice, but not excellent. They are not 100% down. But they fill the purpose for which they were ordered. They are well-made, the fabric a little crisp for my taste, the pillows "plump" well. They are a good value for the money.
