What a disappointment.
What a disappointment. Out of the box, it looked fantastic and I was so optimistic. But after a month of use (and only 1 washing), the edges of the comforter are fraying. I don't know how many more washings it can take before it falls apart at the seams. A previous reviewer posted about the same issue and I thought the company addressed the problem going forward with better quality stitching but unfortunately that wasn't the case with my purchase. I knew the price was too good to be true.

Attractive and easy-to-care-for summer comforter
I ordered this reversible summer comforter in early summer and have been using it for several months now. I have a queen-size bed and it fits well. It is lightweight enough to use in the summer months in New Jersey with the air conditioning set on 76 degrees. I have 3 little dogs who enjoy jumping on the bed so the comforter has been washed 5 or 6 times and it looks like new after each washing. It is reversible, however, I have only been using it with the darker blue side up. This comforter comes with 2 pillow shams which make the bed look sharp when it is made. I plan to put this comforter away in October when the weather gets chilly and take it out next June.

Thin fabric tears easily
The comforter was just what I was looking for - light, stitched squares, no down, looked good. But unfortunately it was cheaply made and only lasted seven months or so. After the fourth washing on gentle, the comforter tore. I've never had this problem with other comforters. This comforter is made out of cheap, thin fabric that tears easily. Not recommended!

Let's test it against a Denver winter
Exceptional Sheets does it again! A nearly perfect purchase of a reversible comforter. I decided to test it out with the coldest of temperatures I could possibly duplicate in my house.
Turned the heat down all the way, opened every window in the house and put the ceiling fan over the bed on high. The temperature outside in Colorado...33 degrees and breezy. Oh, and no PJ's. Bear in mind I also had a 1000 TC Egyptian Cotton sheet from Exceptional Sheets over me and under the comforter. The results are in and I was remarkably surprised at how cold I was able to get my home, like shivering cold. There was one refuge from the chill...my bed. I slept through the night, didn't sweat at all and, when morning came, I had to unfortunately crawl out from beneath the sheets and comforter, put clothes on, turn the heat up and close the windows to avoid frostbite. Color me impressed.
How will it hold up to Colorado spring and summer? Time will tell but, using the same setup in our current overnight spring temperatures, no sweating so far and still cozy. I have their "cooling" bamboo mattress pad under the cotton mattress cover so I'm not sure how much cooling it can provide. However, I purchased the bamboo sheet set and will try them out when my currently AC-less home gets summer toasty (like in the 90's).
Why only four stars? There is an ever-so-small (about the width of my pinky) defect in the stitching at the foot of the comforter on one of the baffle boxes. I thought it was lint until I tried to pick it off. If it was on the white side, rather than the black side, I'd never have noticed. I thought about returning it, and I know eLuxury would have jumped at the chance to practice their rare brand of extraordinary customer service, but repacking it would have been a pain and, I figured, the small stitching defect is manageable as long as it stays pinky size and nothing comes out of it.

Ordered this for my son who loves it. He enjoys the ability to switch the colors when he feels like it. It was warm enough for the Arizona winter while still being usable in the summer. However if you're in a heavy winter state, you may want something a little heavier. Otherwise, it's a great comforter.

The product arrived on time, however, it was defective out-of-the-box; it had about 10 inches of seam undone.

Damaged after first wash but seller was very cooperative!
These sheets were damaged after the first wash and these photos are after the first wash brand new, very disappointed as to the price.
UPDATE: Customer service was excellent and seller was very cooperative! Full refund issued.

Very Pretty Comforter Set
This is a very pretty reversible comforter with shams. This is of good quality & construction. I was pleasantly surprised b/c it was very low priced. I'm sure it must be marked down for the summer. For the same quality I have always had to pay about $100.00 at least. It is not a heavy comforter but did not want a heavy one.....I got exactly what I wanted.....lighter b/c I already had a duvet covering a warm comforter. I love the colors in the print of the material also. The only negative I had about it is it could have been larger for a King/Cal. King but the merchants nowadays can't seem to make large/standard size King in anything. No matter where you buy them.....the sizes in King are always shy of enough to our liking. Other than that It is a great buy.

Cheap, cheap quality, not warm, BUT does look surprisingly good
Eh.. probably would not buy again if I were to fly back in time in my DBZ Time Capsule (not Back to the Future because I don't like BTTF much). In fact, I can quite confidently say I would probably not. Had issues with the way the seller had actually sold it as far as delivery goes, the quality is actually pretty crappy, and its super thin. I also have yet to wash it, and don't think I can confidently do so. Nonetheless for the original cost of it (including the additional $10 Post Office pickup for seller shoving into smaller box than fits) it was okay for the money. I do like the fact that its Down Alternative as well, although it may just be pigeon feathers that were collected, they are clean possibly pigeon feathers.
Comforter isn't particularly warm however I will say on the pretentious front, it does look pretty good. Like if you bring company over, she/he will not think you're slumming it, until they try to use it and ask how many tissues it took to make it... at that point, victory. So in a sense if you are looking for a cheaply designed comforter that does not use down and will not burn a hole in your pocket, I would suggest this duvet.
