Marten: Hey guys, Marten here for Mattress
Clarity. So if you’re looking for the best comforters around, you’ve come to the right
place. I’ve tried a lot of top brands. I think six comforters really stand out among the
rest. So I want to talk about each, one by one. Their design, and who they’re a good
fit for, and also some frequently asked questions about comforters. Which one’s right for you?
Let’s find out. [music] Marten: First off you’re looking for a comforter
or maybe some bedding or even a mattress. Go to mattressclarity.com for some great reviews,
comparisons, and roundups. You might be wondering what is the best comforter. Just tell me,
and to that I say, “calm down, you’re stressing me out.” Second there is no one right comforter
for everyone. That’s why I chose six that are a good fit
for different types of sleepers. From those who like that fluffy kind of cloud-like experience
for those colder nights, for those who want something on the thinner side for those warmer
nights. I’m going to go through each one by one starting with the Egyptian Bedding. I wanted to start with the Egyptian Bedding
because a lot of times when people think of a comforter, they’re thinking of something
really fluffy, something more cloud-like and the Egyptian Bedding is definitely that. It has 60 ounces of 750 fill power goose down,
a very fluffy material, very expansive as well, and also has a baffle box design. That
means actually has these cubes in the construction that fill to fully expand. Overall a very
fluffy comforter. Also very warm and insulating, good for those colder nights. On the outside a very smooth outer shell,
hundred percent Egyptian cotton, very smooth to the touch. But if you don’t like that feel,
they do have some duvet tabs around the outside of the comforter. Tie in duvet cover for a
different feel. Then lastly, it is a fantastic deal. Right
now for a queen size, $119. A very, very good value for a goose down comforter like this.
So if you want something that’s a good value, something very comfortable and fluffy, take
a look at the Egyptian Bedding. Next up we have the Brooklinen All-Season
Down comforter. Now as I said with the Egyptian Bedding a lot of people that look for a down
comforter are looking for something fluffy or something more cloud-like but that feel
is not for everyone. That is why I like the Brooklinen so much. It’s definitely thinner than the Egyptian
bedding but it’s also a very luxury down comforter. It’s going to have some materials like 100
percent cotton in the shell, inside Canadian down clusters with a nice fill power as well.
A very luxury down comforter. It’s also better for those warmer nights. It’s more breathable
so you’re not going to sleep quite so hot underneath the Brooklinens. Then we have the Superior Down Alternative
comforter. Now there are a few reasons you might be considering a down alternative comforter.
It could be you have, for ethical reasons don’t want a down comforter, you could struggle
with allergies or you want to get something more on the budget end. A Superior definitely
fits all those criteria. It is hypoallergenic, so good for people with
allergies. They don’t use any down in the product whatsoever, and it’s a very good deal,
$45 for a queen size. It also has a lot of the benefits of a down comforter without the
drawback. It’s still a very fluffy comforter and warm
and insulating. If you want a very good value for a down alternative comforter but you also
want some of that fluff of a down comforter, take a look at the Superior. Moving on we have the Chezmoi Down Alternative
comforter. This is my top value pick. Right now it’s $34 for a queen size on Amazon. A
very good deal for a down alternative comforter. While it’s a good value, it also has some
nice fluff, some nice loft, and it’s also warm and insulating as well. The outside is a little bit rough to the touch,
100 percent polyester, but I think it’s a very good duvet insert. In fact probably the
best value duvet insert on this list. I’ve been throwing around a lot of terms like
comforter and duvet, and if you want to know the difference between the two, I did a great
video about that exact topic. Definitely go to our Mattress Clarity YouTube page and check
it out. Then we have the Casper Humidity Fighting
duvet, but don’t worry it’s basically a comforter. So what sets this comforter apart, is it’s
really good for hot sleepers. I’m personally a hot sleeper. I wake up sweaty and clammy
underneath a lot of different comforters, but I did not have that experience under the
Casper here. The Casper contains duck down and a layer
of merino wool. Merino wool is material we’ll find in hiking socks for instance. It helps
with moisture wicking and heat dissipation. Lying underneath the Casper I’m not overheating.
I’m sleeping quite cool. You hot sleepers out there should definitely take a look at
the Casper. Last up we have the Buffy comforter. A very
popular comforter right now. I added to this list because it’s an eco-friendly option.
Inside you have the fill is made from 100 percent recycled plastic. Really awesome in
that respect. Also in the shell you have eucalyptus., really good anti-inflammatory properties,
very nice for your skin. It’s also designed with hot sleepers in mind
to keep you cool at night. A lot to like about the Buffy and a great eco-friendly option. [music] Marten: Now I want to answer some frequently
asked questions about comforters. First off we have, what is the best type of comforter?
With comforters you’re going to have two main types — down comforters and down alternative. A down comforter is better for those who like
that fluffy kind of lofty feel; something more breathable. A down alternative comforter
is better for those who want to save some money and those who struggle with allergies. Next up we have, what is the best down comforter?
In my personal opinion, it’s the Egyptian Bedding Siberian Goose Down comforter. That’s
because it’s really fluffy, really lofty, really warm and insulating, and a very good
deal at $119 for a queen size. Then we have, what’s the best down alternative
comforter? For me it’s the Superior Down Alternative comforter. I like this so much because it’s
very fluffy, very lofty. Similar to what you find with a down comforter, but it’s also
good for people who struggle with allergies and those who don’t want to have down in their
comforter. Last up we have, how do I choose a good down
comforter? There’s three things you want to think about. First off, think about design.
Is it sewn-through, or is it baffle box? Sewn-through has kind of a tighter design where the fill
can’t fully expand. With a baffle box design you actually have these cubes within the comforter
for that fill to fully expand for more fluff. Also think about fill weight. Is it a heavier
fill weight — how much down you’re getting? For instance, for a queen size, something
over 60 ounces of down fill is definitely going to be a good choice. Then the last thing
you want to think about, down fill power. Fill power is a measure of, basically, how
fluffy is that down. Something over 700 or 750 fill power is definitely a good choice. In the end, if you’re looking for a great
comforter, one of these six should definitely work for you. If you want more information
about any of these comforters, though, definitely check out our individual reviews on mattressclarity.com.
