The new down comforter comes with 2 different dimensions. The queen: 88 inches wide x 98 inches long with 51 ounces of fill. And the king: 107 inches wide x 98 inches long with 61 ounces of fill. The comforter is featured with a striking damask pattern and is filled with hypoallergenic polyester to prevent any discomfort when using. It is covered with 100% cotton cover.

And last but not least, the blanket is machine washable.

Pros

Pros

The comforter is light weighted compared to other down fill blankets. It stays warm in the winter and comfortable in summer. A good year-round product for most of you.

As I’ve mentioned before, the alternative fill is really soft, warm, and well made. I personally think that it is even better than real down. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fluffy but also breathable down comforter.

And I must say the price is really good. With a reasonable price, you’ll receive a light but warm duvet. And the fill is terrific, very soft and fluffy.

Stay in shape very well, the baffle box construction is neat. I only need to wash it one time since I first bought it.

The best thing that I loved about alternative down is that they can be machine wash. Not like down fill, you don’t have to dry clean this so it’ll save you a ton of time.

You can avoid allergy by using this comforter. Normal down fill could cause allergy to certain people.

Cons

Cons

Since it’s made from real down, it makes sense that Tommy Bahama’s new down alternative isn’t as warm as other down fill comforters. So even at the same weight, a natural down fill will still warmer than alternative down.

Isn’t as soft and fluffy as my goose down comforter. Even though it is a great product for alternative down.

Only comes with oversized queen and king. There should be another selection like the twin size or normal queen and king. It could be too big for those who are looking for comforters for a single bed.
