Rated 5 out of 5 by LinenPig love it -in NC
I searched for hours over several weeks for the perfect comforter and chose the Bean baffle box down comforter, warm. Originally got the warmer but I could tell right out of the package that it would be too warm and sent it back. We live in the NC mountains (2200feet) and keep the temp at ~62 at night. I'm very cold-natured (icy hands and feet) and my husband is very hot-natured (sweats in a snow storm) so it was hard to find the right balance. We use this comforter in various combinations depending upon the weather. Might use it with flannel or fleece sheets or just lightweight cotton sheets, sometimes with flannel duvet cover or lightweight cotton duvet cover, or sometimes with no top sheet, just the comforter + duvet cover on top. I never get too hot but my husband overheated a few times when we first got the comforter. We just had to find the right combination of sheets and duvet covers and now it is perfect for both of us.
The king size is plenty long 1 direction, wish it was a little longer both ways because it does not cover the entire pillow top mattress set lengthwise, but it's the longest size available as far as I have found in my search.
Yes it makes a crinkly sound, but both my husband and I kind of like the sound. It somehow sounds comforting to both of us and not bothersome at all.
Bean customer service was excellent through many different orders and exchanges in my search for the perfect comforter and duvet cover. PS, bought my mom the Primaloft comforter because she wants something very light and is allergic to down -she loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JKMD So wonderful
I chose the "warmer" option because the "warm" was temporarily out of stock.
I love it! I was worried about it being hot and sweaty - it isn't! It's so fluffy and comfy. Fills in the duvet perfectly. We've been sleeping with it for about a month and my sleep and comfort have been transformed!
The "noise" that people are talking about is completely unfounded. It just sounds like crispy sheets moving around. I feel like a queen!
We now don't even keep the heat on- yes, granted, it's ElNino in Chicago so still doable without heat :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by ellie1927 Noisy
I loved that the comforter was available in a cream color--that was hard to find. When I first bought it, the crinkling noise bothered me, but I kept it hoping that a couple of washings would soften it. No luck. After a few years, it's warm and in great shape but still noisy. I wish I'd returned it right away. I'm off to buy a different comforter this weekend before the weather gets too cold.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kschmul I should have listened to reviews
I am returning the comforter. It's really warm; but the 100% cotton makes a really annoying sound when you move. I wonder if it's coated with something to make it waterproof? In any event -- it was too disruptive for sound sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomfromBoulderCO Love this comforter
I purchased the warmer baffle-stitch comforter a year and half ago and love it. It is just the right amount of warmth for most of the year (too warm for summer unless you use A/C) while still being super light and fluffy. Excellent quality - I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rloshopper Thanks L.L.Bean
I seldom if ever write reviews about any product or company. This is an exception. I purchased a different quilt that was just not warm enough. I was reluctant to return it because of perceived hassles. There were NONE! Customer service was great as well as the total return procedure ? including prompt reimbursement! Great Job L.L.!
The new comforter is great! The length is exceptional in that you can tuck the bottom under your feet insuring total coverage and warmth. TOTALLY SATISFIED!

Rated 5 out of 5 by psychsteph Minnesotan-approved!
I finally decided to replace the ratty old down comforter that my parents gave me back in middle school (I'm now 35), and I wish I would have done it years ago. This comforter is absolutely amazing!! Toasty warm, light weight, and deliciously cozy - in short, perfect for our bitterly cold Minnesota winters. Not to mention that the quality is truly superb - I can foresee my two-year-old happily using this very blanket when she gets to be my age! Thanks for the quality craftsmanship, LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by slick50 Totally worth it, so comfortable
We ordered this in early Dec, got caught in the back order and it came this week. Totally worth the wait. I was afraid it might be too warm for my husband, he loves it. I do too. Never had anything so lightweight and yet so warm. We live in NH and like a cool bedroom. My previous down comfortable was thinner and not really warm enough for me. It also tiied in beautifully to the cover which was washed and waiting for it. This item was about three times what I have paid in the past and worth the money as well. I was also pleased with the quality of the LL Bean customer service. I called a few times to check on the status of the item and twice they researched it and got back to me with an update. Then they called to make sure the item arrived. I really appreciate it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hudson38 So worth the wait!
I read other reviews on-line and really wanted this baffle box stitch down comforter. I thought I ordered it early enough, in November, but it got back ordered. We received it last week and immediately put it on the bed. It is WONDERFUL! Light enough so we don't have weight on us but so toasty warm. My two cats are even climbing under it to stay cushy. I would highly recommend purchasing it and as my title says - it was so worth the wait!
