Located beneath a bird’s feathers are three-dimensional clusters, typically found on a goose or ducks belly (see detailed Wikipedia Article). These little insulators are nature’s way of keeping moisture off the birds and keeping them warm. The clusters trap heat in the little air pockets of these tiny little fibers. Contrary to what most people may believe, down is quill-less. True down clusters resemble the size of a quarter. Down is not feathers as these are hair- like strands delicate and soft to the touch. Feathers have the spine down the center which is known as the quill, and they are used often in quality pillows and bedding. Sometimes you can
The quality of down insulation is measured by the fill-power index which ranges from 400 (low grade down) to 900 (high grade down). The higher the fill-power index, the better warmth for the weight the insulation provides. Down is often treated with DWR (Durable Water Repellant) so that it becomes better at retaining warmth when exposed to moisture. Such down is referred to as hydrophobic down.

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.

A warm, cozy quilt doesn’t have to be expensive. In general, quilts made with man-made materials, like microfiber and polyester, will be less expensive without sacrificing on warmth, softness or style. If you’re trying to make your money stretch further, choose one in a solid color you love with classic, unfussy stitching that can carry you through rounds of redecorating or work in different rooms over the years. This silky-soft quilt set (it includes shams as well) is oversized, meaning you have a few extra inches all around — a great option to cover the whole bed when you have a taller or pillow-top mattress on top of a box spring. It comes in more than fifteen colors to find the perfect shade for your home.

Down comforters are almost a must-have bedding these days. They are incredibly beautiful, functional, and provide the nice warmth needed. The fabric is breathable, and lightweight, making them great for all season use. They come in a huge array of styles and price ranges. Whether you are going for the high-end Hungarian goose down comforter or the polyester alternative down comforter, you are going to notice the difference in how you rest at night.

Construction of a true down comforter will make or break the quality. You may not notice it immediately, but after awhile a poorly made down comforter will shift, creating a flatness and empty areas where there is no warmth. There are different techniques used in making a down comforter. It is important to know about processes such as baffling and stitching. Information about the construction of the down comforter should always be listed on the label. Here are the techniques commonly used:


An elegant approach to the printed whole-cloth quilt, this oversized paisley design with a tile-inspired border has the look and feel of a grand piazza. * A sophisticated ornamental print with just a hint of pop * Hand-quilted with a diamond pattern for added depth and dimension * The quilt features an artfully placed oversized paisley design in the center, with a tile-inspired border * 100% cotton...

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.
Gusseting: This is a construction technique which is widely underused, but should be applied more often due to the extra security it provides in durability and resilience of the comforter. Think of it like a thick ribbing or edging against the side walls to secure a comforter's top and bottom layers together. This style provides maximum loft and can have either a baffle-box or sewn-through construction.
A great entry level comforter with high end features. Pinzon is Amazon.com’s house brand for bedding and linens – like how Costco rebrands their products under the Kirkland brand. Amazon’s Pinzon branded comforters are actually manufactured by Downlite, the company that also makes down filled bedding for Eddie Bauer, Bloomingdales, and other high-end retailers.
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.

The comforter’s fabric is going to determine the quality. While much is based on personal preference for texture or feel, details like type of fabric and thread count are the luxurious boost aside from the fill power. The main consideration here is finding a good balance between the weave, thread count, and the material. There are four types of fabrics used for down comforters:
The Sea to Summit Ember EB III quilt is very light (it weighs merely 757 grams) and thus perfect for those who prefer lightweight hiking. Despite its low weight, it offers great insulation – it has the lower limit rating of -10°C by the EN standard. The shell and lining are made of 15-denier nylon which provides great durability for the weight. The quilt uses 750-fill power Ultra Dry Down which is treated with DWR (Durable Water Repellant) so that it resists moisture. Sea to Summit claims that Ultra Dry Down absorbs 30% less moisture than untreated down and is up to 60% better at retaining loft when wet. The Sea to Summit Ember EB III quilt also features a footbox with a drawcord and an adjustable strap system for easy attachment to the sleeping pad. Press studs down the side of the quilt allow you to close the lower half for better insulation. The Sea to Summit Ember EB III quilt is due to its low weight and superb insulation a great option for hikers, mountaineers and other outdoor enthusiasts who need reliable sleeping equipment for 3-season hiking.
It has four different warmth options to choose from (super light, light, medium, and extra), as well as an option for a standard or oversized comforter. What remains constant across all varieties is the hypoallergenic-tested Hungarian-goose-down fill, an incredibly fluffy feel, a 430-thread-count combed cotton sateen cover, and 15-inch baffle-box stitching that keeps the loft in place. It's available in all sizes from twin to king, and it does require professional dry cleaning to keep it in its peak condition.
