Rated 5 out of 5 by TipperMoM Depends on what you prefer!
Yes, this comforter definitely crinkles. Sound has softened over 3 months, and we find the gentle crinkle quite soothing as we settle in for slumber. Otherwise, the comforter is well made, fits our platform bed well, and is a perfect weight for our 65oF sleeping environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmtoast Just right
We've had 3 comforters: the first one was too light to use alone (with a top sheet, but no additional blankets), the second was too heavy/warm, but this one is just right. High quality, well made comforter with no down floating around the bedroom.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RedlandsReviewer Big Disappointment
The covering on the comforter feels like plastic and sounds like you are sleeping under a bag of potato chips. I used a LL Bean duvet to encase the "comforter", but still too " crunchy" for me. Certainly not up to the usual Bean standards! The Bean return staff was very helpful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NorwegianRose The Loudest Blanket in America
Very warm snuggly comforter with a major drawback- the fabric encasing the comforter is acoustically identical to a tarp flapping in a hurricane. I had read other reviews stating such and thought people were just being overly precious, but no- this comforter sounds like plastic crinkling as you sleep. The slightest movement and you will wonder if you've woken inside a dumpster.
I'm really disappointed for the amount of money I've laid out, and this product is not up to LLBeans high quality standards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuggageLover Loved the first one so much, bought another!
I bought this for my daughter. Is is very difficult to find a comforter with duvet ties. My daughter loved her comforter so much, I bought another for my son. If laid flat for 3 days, it will puff up nicely. My kids sleep in a cold room. They commented that when they first get under the comforter, they are cold, but warm up rapidly. It keeps them warm throughout the night!

Bought a queen size a year ago and didn't hesitate to buy my son one. Took just a day to get used to the crunchy sound. Love this comforter.

Not up to LLB standards. Sub par material and too small for king bed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Debelila Comforter Not Comfortable
I was very disappointed in the Down Alternative Comforter!
The fabric is not soft and has a crinkly feel to it! Sounds like a plastic bag.
Will return and try the all cotton comforter.

The cover is not as soft as I was expecting. The comforter makes a "crunchy" sound. I have another LLBean (down) comforter that is warm and comfy but also sounds "crunchy." I prefer not to hear my comforter when I roll over in bed.
