Rated 5 out of 5 by NJSueZQ Down Baffle Heaven!
I bought the WARM version of this down baffle box comforter. I absolutely love it! It is the ultimate non-weighty warmth I have ever slept under. It is warm and I do not feel weighed down with heavy layers. It also breathes and doesn't make you feel sweaty. I wish I had purchased this sooner, because it is much more comfortable than my old synthetic comforter. I purchased the WARM version of the comforter for a better possibility of 3 season use, figuring I could add a blanket in the coldest months if necessary. Based upon how it feels now, I expect I will NOT have to add a blanket in the coldest part of winter, since it seems like it will be warm enough.
The King size is generously sized for my bed and I am happy with that too. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stellablue96 LOVE!!!! Down Comforter Perfection
I did A LOT of research on down comforters before I purchased this one. I wanted to make sure I purchased one with good distribution of the down as well as one that did not constantly leak feathers. We live in an older house in Michigan so the winters can be pretty cold. I LOVE this comforter. Its is so warm and fluffy and there are no spots in the comforter that seem to be vacant of the down filling. There are no random feathers that fly out. I cannot speak highly enough about this item. Every night I wake up happy that I made this purchase. I also know if I ever have a problem LL Bean will back of the purchase. If you are looking for a down comforter buy this one. Its great!

It doesn't have enough down in it! This is ridiculous (I'm referring to the "warm" version). Why?
Especially for the price. It weighs nothing. I'm not sure what the baffle-box is or what makes its construction different and more expensive than the box stitch, but it looks exactly the same in person. Disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonnyLifeSong Baffle-Box Comforter...
This is a great warm comforter. The quality is outstanding and I'd recomend it to any one. I did some research on the internet before purchasing this so I got some info. on what was out there. I trust LL Bean because of it's reputation not only for quality, but its customer service. I know that in the rare instance something doesn't live up to my expectation, it can be returned no questions asked... easliy, and that my friends counts for a lot. When purchasing anything like this, keep that in mind. LL Bean is going to be there to back it up. All that being said, this is one outstanding comforter and I'd buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sandylady Very warm and few loose feathers
My daughter has been using this for about a month now and LOVES it. She was the last one to get a goose down because she is such a hot sleeper I was worried it would be too much for her. The medium weight is perfect, warm without being too hot. We haven't had any feathers poke through yet as they tend to do on any down product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stanka Disappointed
We bought this comforter 4 years ago. The biggest issue is that even after 3 years, down still flies in the room when changing the comforter cover. The comforter fabric is not down-proof at all. We had an old LLBean down comforter for many years and never had that problem with it. Secondly, box stiching ends before the edge, so that down DOES shift around the edges. No idea why that is so, and not only on LLBean's comforters. Would be nice to have it sticthed all the way through. Suggestion: it would be good to have loops at the corners, so that the comforter cover could be tied there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sprucefrost Never be cold again!
Feel the cold acutely at night in the winter and my previous down comforter (not LLBean) did not have stitched down baffle boxes and the down was usually around the edges of the comforter, doing no good at all. This comforter is fabulous. Purchased the "warmer" version and it just right with sateen sheets in fall and spring and flannel in the winter. The down stays lofted and in place, making this an extremely warm comforter. Turn my heat way down at night and this is perfect. Only wish I had purchased it much sooner! (p.s. I use the 340-thread-count sateen cover with it and this is an extremely luxurious combination.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by classicsandease a disappointment
This quilt is very warm and would be a 5 star item if it were a few inches wider. I bought the king and it gives about an inch over each side of our bed. It doesn't cover the sides properly. No coverage if you roll over. For such an expensive quilt this is a disgrace. I have always appreciated Bean's quality and am disappointed with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MountainGram Unbelievably warm and cozy!
Let me start by saying, this is the first down comforter I've ever owned. I first bought one from a local department store, which was supposed to be their warmest down. There was hardly any down filling in it! So, I thought the next logical step (should've been my first, but I was trying to save money) was to shop LLBean since they are known for great quality. I purchased the Baffle-Box, warm at first. I was still cold with that one, so I decided to try the Baffle-Box, warmer. It is amazingly full and very warm. I sleep with my window slightly open at night, even when it gets down into the teens and this comforter keeps me warm and cozy! You really do get what you pay for....and this is an EXCELLENT product. So happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonnie3 The best comforter EVER!!!
My Mother bought me this comforter years ago in twin size. Everyone in my house fights over this especially when were sick! It's almost as light as a sheet, but warms up so fast it's amazing! There is truly no other blanket I have ever come across that is cozier or warmer than this one. It is affectionately referred to in our house as "The sick blanket" because that is what we all go for as soon as someone can't warm up. You will NEVER have a cold day or night with this tucked around you!!! I wish I had the extra cash to get a King size for my bed. Someday!!!
