Rated 5 out of 5 by webster1943 cozy!
I bought the sateen down comfortor ( warmer) and a sateen duvet cover as a Christmas gift to my husband and I. I could hardly wait to go to bed that first night.We were perfectly warm, the cover did not slip off the bed , the down was evenly spaced throughout and the weight of the entire ?system? was perfect.The ties in each corner of the duvet held the comfortor in place . .. and I think my husband, a poor sleeper, slept more soundly becasue his legs were warm enough. Not a complant. I recommend this product with no reservations.

We are very pleased with our comforter. It is exactly what we wanted. Our dog sleeps with us so I ordered the comforter cover for it and he loves it. We have always been very pleased with LL Bean's products.

So very glad I finally spent the money for this duvet. Lighter weight than my old down-alternative duvet and much warmer. No feathers or fluff popping out. I keep the thermostat at 61F during the night and have not been chilly when I'm tucked in. Flannel sheets are a nice part of the equation, too.

Wished I return this comforter when I first purchased it, seem to have little or no feathers in some boxes within. No after washing and drying with tennis balls it seems to have lost most of its puff.
Also, hung out in sun like suggested in video. Over all disappointed in the short lived of almost 2 years. Feel the need to purchase a replacement already!

I had purchased several different down comforters and I was disappointed with all of them until I found this one. It is warm and very light weight. The thing I love the most about it is that it is a little bit bigger than other queen sized comforters. It is just wonderful! It was one of my better purchases and I am so happy that I decided on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by holley420 Quality Down Comforter
I purchased the queen size and love this comforter! It is wonderfully warm and cozy. As with any down comforter, you need to fluff daily, but over the night it holds its loft very well and is warm. The drop is just the right size for our 11" mattress with a 9" box spring.
Well worth the investment for this quality piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beanshopper01 So glad I made this purchase!
For a long time I wanted a LL Bean down comforter,but the price kind of scared me.I had gotten less expensive down comforters in the past,and went back and forth trying to justify the purchase. I bit the bullet and bought the comforter. And of course quality was good ,but still I wondered if I had made the right decision.I did!! This past weekend, we had a winter storm here on Cape Cod-Storm Nemo- and I lost power for 35 hours. I was one of the lucky ones! My apartment went down to 40 degrees,it was so cold! But under this comforter,you would never even know that you had no heat. When I had heat, it was a comforter,but when I lost heat,it was a lifesaver,along with my Coleman lamp! My kitties were vying for a place under the comforter! This comforter is worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WinstonsMom Quest for luxury and warmth are over
My husband and I were on vacation & our bed had a down comforter and was our best night sleep ever. Well my quest to replicate that night's sleep in warmth & luxury has ended with this comforter. I ordered king size (I always seem to get gipped in that department), I washed/dried it on gentle cycles of our front load machines and comes out beautiful every time just as the first time. It is a bit pricey but with my coupons it made it worthwhile. Ok, one last note; our labs sleep with us and now we're all sleeping in the lap of luxury that nobody wants to get up!. Thank you LLBean for such a wonderful product we love it, I just don't know why I waited so long!

Rated 2 out of 5 by JasmineMars Disappointed
I bought this comforter after looking at many, both on this site and elsewhere. I bought it because of the 34 five star ratings. Thought that because of the price I would be getting a thick, puffy comforter. I was disappointed when I got it today. It was very thin. In some places where I pinched, there was no stuffing between the front and back of the comforter. I had expected a puffier, more sturdy quilt. My husband commented that it was barely stuffed with feathers. I don't know if my expectations were incorrect (this is a "warm" comforter, not a "warmer" comforter), or if this comforter is truly too thin. I will return this and will keep looking around.

Like many others looking into buying a down comforter, it was a vast sea of information to wade through. Plus hard to compare, based on the variables of size, baffle, down rating, weight, bird type, 100%/or not. Purchasing one had actually been on the to-do list since last winter, but when the price ranges from $100 on the low end to thousands on the high end we were reluctant to underspend and certainly didn't want to overspend. The gaurantee from L.L.Bean convinced us to make the leap, figuring there had to be a reasonably priced comforter with good quality and at worst, LLBean would stand by it.
We puchased the King size for our Queen bed to avoid ever having a blanket tug-o-war. Also we purchased the Ultrasoft Flannel Comforter Cover to go with it. Together they have a nice weight, not too light or heavy. We are located in Minnesota keeping the house between 65-67 at night and this is plenty warm by itself even for the wife (who use to have a sheet/comforter/wool blanket at minimum#. I would expect that it will be too warm/heavy for Summer when the house is around 75, and we anticpated that it would be a seasonal cover. Though we may try a thinner/lighter duvet cover and see how it works.
The only drawback is there aren't any ties in the corner to secure inside the cover #this was noted in other reviews as well, so I won't dock the star rating or if it did maybe a half-star). If they added that feature, it would be perfect. Hopefully will remember to come back in a year to give a follow up!
