Rated 5 out of 5 by RebeccaTurnaway Fantastic, No Crinkling Noises
I have been looking for a new comforter for a while, and my aunt swears by L. L. Bean. I wanted cotton, but worried about the noises people talked about in reviews, as I am a light sleeper.
Believe me when I say that whatever was going on in the past is no longer an issue. It does not sound like the comforter is "stuffed with plastic bags", as a lot of people said. The fabric on the outside makes a little noise, but it's the only "issue" I could find. (And it's not even an issue; I consider that normal for any new linen product, especially comforters.)
I do not normally write reviews, but felt this was warranted from all the reviews saying it was noisy from the past. I hope this does help shed some light from a recent buyer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JerseyMom01 Excellent Comforter!
I purchased two of these comforters and I absolutely love them! They are the perfect weight without being bulky. I can easily fit them in my washing machine and dryer, and since they are not made of down I don't have to worry about the material clumping up inside of the comforter. The colors are beautiful and the fabric is excellent quality. I wish LL Bean would make this comforter in a Twin XL size so I could order one for my son's dorm room.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MMJKA Crinkly Noise
This comforter makes a crinkly noise any time it is moved. It makes it impossible for me to sleep. I'm shocked that this has not been written in every review - you can't miss the sound as soon as you take the comforter out of the box.

Rated 1 out of 5 by joSoBe plastic crumbling sound
I wanted to replace a 100% cotton comforter. This comforter is only outer layer cotton fabric. The inside feels and sounds like there are plastic bags stuffed inside. It does not breathe. A waste of money for me...out it goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UPCDAZEY LOVE this Comforter
I now own 4 of these comforters - 3 in twin, 1 in full. They are just the right weight for year round, the colors are beautiful, they wash well and look great. Typical Beans quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mizmeliz Odd size and tears easily; but warm & soft
This comforter is warm and soft for sure; but it's an odd size. I ordered a King Size comforter for my King Size bed. One way, it's really long head to toe and just only covers the width of the mattress. The other way, it hangs down on both sides of the mattress as it should and is more appropriate head to toe, but still comes up short when one person rolls over...and we are not large people - not a lot of body to cover.
My comforter also ripped twice, in the middle of the square; not on the seams, and I have no idea how - on the top, down by my feet...??? I wish the fabric was more durable and that it covered a wider width.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeU VERY comfortable
Really nice blanket. It's lightweight, but very very warm, and the cotton is soft and pleasant. This is an excellent choice and I was very impressed by the quality and the price. Replacing an older comforter that was worn out, and I hunted for a long time to find something this comfortable (non-allergenic inside, but natural fiber shell). This was a real pleasant surprise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogpackx4 gorgeous color, perfect weight
Love this comforter! I got the bay leaf color and it is absolutely beautiful. It is a perfect weight and keeps us warm but not too hot. I haven't washed it yet but, so far, I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by littlegirl Wonderful Comforter
First, I am quite surprised at the speed in which I received this comforter. Super fast delivery in awful weather here on Long Island. Next, this has got to be the most perfect comforter made! I bought a king-size for my queen bed (as another reviewer did) in 'natural' as the light blue color was out of stock. The color goes with everything and the comforter itself is a must-have in every way. It comes in a sealed plastic bag, that upon opening makes a slight hissing sound as the item expands. Mine was not at all 'wrinkled' as some of the reviews stated. And its so nice and light, yet warm and comfortable. The outer fabric feels wonderful, the stitching is perfection and I did not hear that squishy-crumpled paper sound many reviewers mentioned. The comforter does NOT slide off the bed either, as many others do. Once again, LL Bean has a winner by selling this item. Do not hesitate to buy one, you'll be very satisfied, I'm sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NightDogWalker Perfect Colors
This looks just as great as I thought it would, and it feels wonderful! It hangs down the sides right to the wooden bed rails, just covering the sheets/mattress/boxspring perfectly. We love the colors and the fact that it is light, but warm. We had two sets of sage green sheets & pillowcases, so we used the extra cases as shams. My only regret is that there aren't solid color shams to match. My next quest will be for other sheets/pillowcases to pick up the wonderful colors in the comforter.
