Rated 5 out of 5 by ForeverLLBean1225 Fantastic
I bought this comforter over a year ago and if I had to purchase one again, this would still be the comforter. It is lightweight but keeps you warm. My husband who runs warm can even tolerate sleeping under it. It's fluffy without being suffocating but still feels snuggly. Yes, it still makes a bit of noise but not enough to bother my husband or I. The quality of the comforter is excellent. the little fabric straps for securing it to the cover are holding on like champions, (of course I would expect nothing less from L.L.Bean).

Rated 5 out of 5 by RNYC Lightweight, warm comforter.
This box stitch comforter in the warm version is warmer than a blanket, but hardly weighs anything at all when you're sleeping under it.
Yes, it can make a little noise. I have an older, fluffier down comforter (from a different manufacturer) that still makes a little noise even though its been washed and dried several times. It shouldnt be a problem unless you sleep with someone who never stops moving around.
I would like to let you know that this is not one of the warmer down comforters. If you're finally buying a down comforter because you're too cold to sleep, or because your heat is erratic, this one probably won't be warm enough for you in winter. Look at the different models and choose one with a little more down filling, maybe one with baffles. It will be puffier and warmer, but it will still feel very light when you're sleeping under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JLJM Super warm and very large!
We bought this comforter about a week ago and I absolutely love it so far! I had been concerned about the crinkle noise that many other reviewers commented on, but I haven't noticed that with ours. I had been sleeping with a sheet, a fuzzy blanket, and a comforter prior to purchasing this down comforter....but, I no longer need the fuzzy blanket to stay warm at night. I love how the down envelopes your body and creates little pockets of warmth....definitely nice to snuggle under on a chilly night!

Rated 1 out of 5 by HuntValGuy Misleading ad copy.
Your catalog copy claims that this down comforter is 100% downproof. It is not; bits of down appear on the flannel cover (yours) and are impossible to remove either with a lint roller or in the wash.

I've been sleeping under my new comforter for about two weeks now. When it arrived, I spread it out and let it air out for two days. The down lofted nicely and the comforter fits nicely in my flannel duvet. Holding the quilt up in front of a light, I can see down evenly distributed in each box. It makes for a warm night's sleep. Yes, it does rustle like Mamie's red taffeta petticoat in Gone with the Wind, but it's worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jennlovesdogs Not what I was hoping for
As another reviewer wrote, the comforter is pretty noisy. After 2 weeks it was still noisy so I put a cotton cover on it and it still makes just as much noise every time one of us rolls over or pulls the comforter up over us. When I hold the comforter up the light shines through and I can see patches where the down has shifted in its 'box" leaving a big "hole". I might recommend this for light summer use if you use a comforter in the warm months. We turn our thermostat down to 64 at night in the fall/winter and this is just not warm enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michellbelle Wonderful, as long as you wash it twice!
I have two of these, purchased before they changed the material in 2008. The new material is starchy and makes a ton of crunchy noise. It is very rough and not soft like the old ones I have. I love this product so I called Customer Service. The rep confessed that she had to wash hers a few times before she liked it. They apparently changed the design in 2008 so the fabric lasts longer and does not "leak" feathers. She suggested I try washing it and I could always return it I was still unhappy. Two washes in an industrial washer (and lots of fabric softener) and it feels like the old design. Very happy now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by qualityisfrugal Best Down Comforter Ever
This is the best comforter we've ever owned. I bought a twin for my son when he was little. He is now 19 and the blanket is still in use! It is finally wearing out. I've been stitching the holes shut. We've never had a hole until this past year and the blanket is at least 15 yrs. old. I think if I keep stitching it we can get another 15 yrs.out of it! It is so soft and warm that it has been in constant use and never stored. Any feather leakage has been minimal and was never a problem for us.Also,I love the super soft cover so we don't use a duvet. It is used in summer just as much as the rest of the year. We like it so much we use it on our Queen size bed now! Looking forward to purchasing another in a bigger size!

My husband has tried for 50 years to get me to buy a down comforter. The only problem is it is so comfortable that we hate getting out of bed in the a.m. The best part is there is no hassle
making the bed. Thks LL Bean and to your wonderful customer service helping me to make the right decisions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Busymomcarrie year 5...still keeping us warm
I had a cheap down comforter so for our 6th wedding anniversary, and a sub zero day, we upgraded to a down comforter from llbean. It has kept us warm, I've not had any problems with feathers leaking and my allergy prone spouse has not had any issues. It's warm so we only use it in the winter.
