With a 650 fill power, this style from JCPenney is a great option for year-round use. If you're looking for more warmth, this comforter is also available in Level 1 (600 fill power) or Level 3 (700 fill power) options. The 100% cotton cover has a 350 thread count, which is great for preventing down from poking through. It's machine washable (as long as there's enough room for it to move freely) and it has a baffle-box construction to keep the down evenly distributed. Keep an eye out for a sale on this one; it's rarely sold at its listed price.

Not so obvious is the special way these quilts are produced. At a time when practically every textile product sold in America is made in a sweatshop in Asia, these Amish quilts are made one at a time in people's American homes. What's more, these quilts are made using just the technology that was in common use 150 years ago. Because of the extensive handwork most women only take part in producing a couple of quilts each year.

When we tested this duvet insert, we immediately noticed two things: that the material was incredibly crinkly but also very lightweight. Luckily, neither of these factors seemed to affect overall quality of sleep. The duvet's pillowy texture and rectangular quilting was also incredibly adept at facilitating airflow, making the piece feel light and cool, without ever going flat. While this duvet feels as though it perfectly regulates body temperature during the winter, it did feel a bit too bulky for a restful night of sleep on hotter nights.


The Therm-a-Rest Corus HD quilt is another great choice for 3-season hiking. The quilt uses 650-fill power down which is treated with Nikwax so that it repels the water (hydrophobic down) rather than absorbing it. Therefore, it offers better warmth when exposed to moisture than regular down. The shell is made of 20-denier DWR treated nylon for good abrasion resistance and weather protection. The quilt has also an elastic footbox so that it keeps your feet warm at low temperatures. As it features snap loops it can easily be attached to a sleeping pad. It comes in two different sizes – regular (193 cm in length) and long (203 cm in length).

The fill power in a comforter refers to its down-feather density — the number indicates the amount of space that 1 ounce of down fill takes up in cubic inches. Comforters with low power-fill numbers will be less lofty but more breathable, and those with higher numbers will be weightier and warmer. Most folks who sleep in temperature-controlled bedrooms will want to choose down comforters with a fill power in the 550-700 range, as these are just right for year-round comfort, but those with specific sleep needs may want to consider comforters outside of that middle range.
