Brooklinen is a producer of some very fine linens and bedding. I have personally reviewed a few of their items, so I was excited to try out their down comforter.
The Brooklinen comes in two models: Lightweight and All-Season. I received the All-Season Down Comforter, which is designed to be fluffier and warmer than the Lightweight model.
Brooklinen is known for their luxurious bedding. Is this a luxury comforter? Read on for my full review.
You Might Like The Brooklinen If…
- You want a durable, luxury down comforter. The Brooklinen contains some very luxurious materials like 400 thread count cotton and Canadian down clusters. These materials give the comforter a luxury look and feel. They are also durable materials so this should be a solid long-term investment.
- You want something that can be used as a comforter or a duvet insert. When you receive your Brooklinen, it is ready to use right away. You can throw it on your bed and use it as a comforter. However, if you want to place it inside a duvet cover, you can do this as well. The Brooklinen features corner tabs that allow you to secure it within a duvet cover.
- You are a hot sleeper. If you want a down comforter that won’t make you wake up feeling sweaty, it is worth taking a look at the Brooklinen. The cotton shell is breathable and the down fill promotes airflow through the comforter. You shouldn’t be sleeping too hot under the Brooklinen.
You Might Not Like The Brooklinen If…
- You want an extra fluffy comforter. While the Brooklinen does contain down clusters with 700 fill power, it is not the fluffiest down comforter I have come across. If you want a comforter with more loft and fluff, you might have to look elsewhere.
- You want a comforter for the colder months. Even though this is the All-Season model, it is not very insulating. If you are looking for a comforter that will add serious warmth to your bed, the Brooklinen might not be the best choice.
- You are looking for an affordable comforter. The Brooklinen is a luxurious down comforter. It contains a number of premium materials. This luxury is reflected in the price of the Brooklinen. It is close to $300 for a Full/Queen size down comforter. If you want to spend less money upfront, you might need to consider something without such fine components.

- The outer shell of the Brooklinen is made of 100% cotton. It is put together with a sateen weave with a 400 thread count.
- The comforter features a baffle box design. This allows the fill to expand more than it might in a sewn-through comforter.
- The fill consists of 700 fill power, Canadian down clusters. It is sourced from Hutterite farms who never engage in live-plucking.
- The Brooklinen features corner tabs. These will let you secure the Brooklinen within a duvet cover.
- You have three size options: Twin/Twin XL, Full/Queen, and King/California King.
Feel And Loft
The Brooklinen’s sateen shell is very soft and smooth. Running my hand top of the comforter, it is very smooth. Lying underneath the comforter, I can say that it feels nice against my skin. I did not need to place the Brooklinen in a duvet cover.
I was surprised by the Brooklinen’s lack of loft. Considering it contains down clusters with a 700 fill power, I thought it would be much fluffier. I believe this might have to do with the fill weight, not the fill power. Fill weight refers to how much fill you are actually getting in your comforter. You can have down with a very high fill power but, if there isn’t much of it, you won’t have a very fluffy comforter.
While this is the All-Season comforter, it is not very heavy. So, even with its 700 fill power, it is not a lofty comforter. Fluffier comforters usually exhibit a combination of high fill power and high fill weight.
Warmth And Breathability
The All-Season Down Comforter is very breathable. The cotton shell and down clusters allow for quite a bit of air to flow through the comforter. Pairing the Brooklinen with some lighter sheets, I am not sleeping hot or waking up sweaty and clammy. The Lightweight model is even airier than the All-Season so I can imagine it sleeps even cooler!
However, when I set my thermostat to make my room even colder, the Brooklinen was not insulating me enough, and I had to pair it with another blanket. The Brooklinen could work as a duvet insert for a flannel duvet. This might also provide more warmth during the colder months.
As is the case with most down comforters, the Brooklinen can only be cleaned at a dry cleaner or professional cleaner. You can spot clean the outside of the comforter to handle minor stains.
If you are worried about making a mess, you could invest in a duvet cover. This will protect the Brooklinen, and a duvet cover is much easier to clean than a comforter!
All in all, the Brooklinen All-Season Down Comforter is a great luxury option for hot sleepers. I personally enjoyed my experience with the Brooklinen, but those who need a comforter for the colder months should look elsewhere.
The Brooklinen comes with free shipping and a Lifetime Warranty. Brooklinen also offers a number of items like sheets and duvet covers.
