Even combined with Duvet cover, very light weight and warm. I live in a 1910 house, very cold in the winter (upstate NY). I do not require an additional blanket with this comforter. I love Down comforters, but as I aged, I started to suffer "allergy" to down. I was sad to say goodbye to my feather pillows and comforters. The alternatives are not exactly the same, but, they are better than I thought they would be. So, nice surprise.
My polyester fill pillows had aged. A shredded memory foam replacement caused terrible respiratory reactions from the polyurethane. Allergic to both feathers and wool, I turned to Overstock for some down alternatives. I purchased two different brands of standard size pillows. They are both well made and are very nice pillows. This review is for the Cheer All-Season luxury down alternative, but also makes some comparisons. The Cheer pillow has 35 ounces of fill.The pillow weighed out at 39.10 oz (1109 grams). The Dowlite only had 24 oz of fill and weighed just over 27 oz (781 grams) but was loftier and springier. The Cheer pillow had a loft of about 6" and compressed to about 3.5". Downlte had a loft of about 7.5" and compressed to 4.5". If I was using the pillows primarily for shams, the springier, higher loft Downlite would be a great choice. Also, it's loft makes side sleeping easier on the shoulders. However, for just pure comfort under your head, I preferred the Cheer Collection pillow. It seemed to feel more like a real down pillow to me. I'm going to end up buying one more of each - so I will have a set of two for both of them.
This comforter is perfect for year round comfort. Not too heavy, but still substantial weight. The dimensions are perfect as some others were not wide enough on a King bed. This one is also great because it is not real feathers. No allergy problems or feathers poking through. Love it.
