I received a free Brooklinen down comforter for review. Want to stay toasty warm all year long? Brooklinen now has a down-filled comforter that will get the job done. At only 25 ounces, it is extremely light but because of its high fill power (700) it insulates very efficiently. Think of sleeping under a giant down-filled jacket. So, what is fill power?
Fill power is a measure of the loft or “fluffiness” of a down product that is loosely related to the insulating value of the down. The higher the fill power the more air an ounce of the down can trap, and thus the more insulating ability an ounce of the down will have. Fill power ranges from about 300 (in³/oz or 175 cm³/g or Lorch 75 mm/30g) for feathers to around 900 (in³/oz or 520 cm³/g or Lorch 225 mm/30g) for the highest quality down. Higher fill powers are associated with a larger percentage of down clusters and a larger average down cluster size.
Patagonia has a 800 fill power jacket that sells for $229. You can get a queen size 700 fill power for $299!
Unboxing the Brooklinen Comforter
Below I give an overview of the comforter
My Brooklinen Down Comforter Findings
I live in Minnesota where the temperature can easily drop to minus 20 or more in January and February. With our house being over 100 years old, it’s not very well insulated and our boiler has a hard time keeping up. Having warm clothes and warm bedding is essential. Last winter we had 4 layers of bedding to keep warm. So far, I am only using this comforter to keep warm and sometimes even that can be a little too warm! Granted, it is only late November but I am very happy with how well it insulates.
Below are the full specifications of the Brooklinen all season comforter.
- 700 Fill Power
- Full/Queen 88″ x 90″
- King 104″ x 90″
- 25 oz. weight for maximum versatility
- 500 thread count shell
- 100% Long Staple Egyptian Cotton
- Baffle-box construction
- Made in Canada
To give you a sense of value, Pacific Coast Down’s Ultimate Extra Warmth comforter only has a 600 fill power and costs $549.00. It is a little bigger at 90″x98″. But even the king-size Brooklinen is less at $379.00
Here’s some more detail of the comforter
Watch how it splays out on our king-size bed. I reviewed the king-size comforter. With comforters, if you have a queen-size bed I recommending going with a king comforter. It’s always nice to have extra to share.
My Brooklinen Down Comforter Recommendation
If you live in a part of the county that gets snow. That means its cold enough where you should consider an all-season down comforter. I turn down my thermostat at night to save energy and to sleep better. Having a quality down comforter will keep you cozy and warm all night long. A quality down comforter like this one will last decades. Real down will last longer than synthetic so it is a worthwhile investment.
