Rated 4 out of 5 by pippicat So far, so good!
This comforter has the feel of down but with a much more user friendly set of care instructions (read-machine wash). It is a little 'crinkly' as other reviewers have indicated, but, it has not really been a bother. It is perhaps a little warmer than I expected which come January might be good but I like to use my comforter all four seasons so, this is my reservation in giving the product 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Texas2Step Primaloft Down Alternative Comforter
The first alternative warmer comforter I purchased from LLBean fit the king size bed perfectly but was uncomfortable to sleep under because it was too hot for Texas weather. I returned it for the warm comforter. I like the size and warmth of this one but the fabric is very annoying. It is stiff and feels like paper. Not the same as the smooth soft feel of European comforters we are used to. But economical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by skyequeen Great Product
I have been watching this item on L.L.Bean.com for a long time but it has been out-of-stock each time I check. I am assuming that other buyers are snapping this up before I could buy it. I finally was able to get one and can see why it is so popular. Very good price for such good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lilysarge Very comfortable, warm but not hot
This comforter was exactly what I was looking for. It is warm, but not hot and so soft. It does crinkle a bit, but does not bother me. I felt like I was in an upscale hotel bed...it's easy to fall asleep with the softness and warmth of this product. The only problem is that my cats also like it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CampingJ Almost too warm
With comforter and cotton sheets only and the room at 52 degrees, it was a bit toasty. This is shockingly warm. Plenty light and with a good feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DCgrammy Great value and came fast!
We are more than pleased. The fabric is smooth, high quality, the filling makes the comforter very puffy and the size is generous - good overhang even with our higher than normal mattresses. Some people have noted the "crinkle" of the fabric, but it was minor and quickly diminished with use.The website says to expect 2 weeks for delivery, but it shipped the day after ordered and arrived just a few days later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zensm crazy warm
Very warm. Very poufy. Does make some crinkling noise but not enough to make me want to return it. Ordered king size for queen size bed, the ends do hang over, but if company is coming over, I just tuck them in. The queen probably would have been fine but the oversize is good. Have it in an LL Bean cover thing, it's a nuisance to shove the blanket in there, but with a black fur dog it's worth it. He thinks the blanket is his and loves it too. Would recommend to people who like to bundle up in comfy blankets, would not recommend to people who prefer thinner comforters.

Perfect weight and lovely fabric. The quilt was shipped free and arrived in a couple of days. The item was exactly as described. I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joycemae Welcome warmth!
I put the comforter in a duvet and on my bed the same chilly autumn night that it arrived. Taking it out of the plastic bag, it looked so thin and crinkly; but after shaking it, it fluffed out and was the warmth I needed for a perfect night's sleep. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by feelingpleased warmth without weight
This is a recent purchase so it has yet to stand the test of time. So far, it is exactly what I was looking for: well-made, ample overhang, light weight and warm without being too warm. The fabric is slightly "crackly" but I presume with washing and use, this will lessen. It is not annoying, just noticeable. For anyone not wishing to use feathers, this is a good choice.
