The Sierra Designs Backcountry 700 quilt is slightly heavier (900 grams) than the quilts from Sea to Summit and Nemo listed above but because it provides great functionality, it is nevertheless very popular among hikers and backpackers. The quilt features hand pockets which allow you to snugly enclose it around your body when the temperature drops. For good insulation it has an insulated hood and a tight-fitting footbox. It is also slightly wider than the other quilts on this list and thus better at preventing cold drafts. The quilt features a 20-denier nylon shell which provides great abrasion resistance. The insulation layer consists of 700-fill power hydrophobic down – each down plume is treated with DWR so that it stays dry longer when exposed to moisture. The quilt has a lower limit rating of -8 C° by the EN standard and comes with a stuff sack for easy storage.

Whether you live someplace warm or like to throw the windows open come summertime, a lightweight quilt is a must to be comfortable in the nighttime chill or with the air conditioning going. But you’ll want to stay away from heavier materials like wool fill or densely woven outer layers so you don’t get too hot. This quilt is made of 100% cotton in both the fill and outer layers, so it provides a little bit of warmth but still breathes, and won’t hold on to humidity. It’s made by artisans in India (a country that gets very, very hot) using a traditional weaving method called “kantha” and takes six days to make. It’s super-soft and can be used alone on the bed for hotter days, or layered under or over a duvet when it’s really chilly.
If you live in a place with a real change in seasons, look for a midweight quilt that will be comfortable when it’s warm out, but that’s easy to layer in the colder months. Choose a quilt in a solid, neutral color to give yourself the most flexibility as you transition through the seasons: In summer, pair it with lightweight cotton or linen sheets, then in winter trade in flannel sheets and top it with an extra throw blanket or duvet if you need more warmth.
Moisture: The ultimate enemy of down is moisture. This can begin even at the point of origin before you buy from the manufacturer not properly drying the comforter fill or it can happen from humidity in the home. There are many ways for moisture to attack your down comforter. Improper washing and drying can be culprits too, as down requires a lot of time to dry.

When it comes to thread count, the jury is still out. While thread count once was considered luxurious by the higher numbers, these days it is more important to consider the weave. The weave affects how the comforter feels, looks, and how long it will last. What it boils down to is the fibers, longer fibers are going to be stronger and more resilient against piling.
Most down comforters only need to be cleaned once every year or so. You can wait longer if you use a duvet cover to protect the comforter. If machine washing, always use mild detergent and a delicate cycle. Dry using no heat, as down comforters are sensitive to higher temperatures yet they take quite a bit time to dry completely. Even one damp area can become moldy.
We also looked at what consumers were saying about their purchase. Percentages of satisfaction in all areas from customer service to the kind of rest consumers are receiving from their comforters. The idea behind an excellent comforter is to contain your warmth without the heavy weight. A good lofty fill is going to keep you warm all night without ever making you feel constrained.
L.L. Bean prides itself in its unique baffle-box design to ensure that the down does not shift inside its cover: The fabric acts like a gate to keep the contents in place.

Available in four sizes from twin to king, it's a great option for any bedroom in the house. It's machine washable, but only in a large commercial machine.
