When it comes to comforters, little compares to down fill. It’s often more expensive, but that fluffy, warm, and breathable bedding offers a level of comfort rarely found with a down alternative comforter.
The Egyptian Bedding Siberian Goose Down Comforter is one of the loftiest, most luxurious down comforters I have tried. It’s also a good value considering what you are getting.
Is this the cozy comforter you’ve been looking for? Read on for my full review.
You Will Like This Comforter If …
- You like a fluffy comforter. With its high fill power and baffle box construction, the Egyptian Bedding Comforter is very lofty. It has a cloud-like quality, and even after a good amount of use, the comforter maintains its full body.
- You need a quality duvet insert. While this can be used as a stand-alone comforter, it could also make a great duvet insert. There are eight tabs stitched around the edge of the comforter, so it can be firmly secured within the duvet cover of your choice.
- You want a cool weather comforter. If you need a comforter to keep you warm during the cooler months, this could be the one for you. I felt nice and insulated when I was lying underneath it. At the same time, the down fill allowed for some very nice airflow, so I never really felt stifled by the comforter.

You May Not Like This Comforter If …
- You struggle with allergies. One of the major risks associated with down comforters is that they may exacerbate your allergies. Down can easily trap dust mites, pollen, and other allergens. While this comforter is advertised as “hypoallergenic,” it is still worth noting that the down could affect your allergies.
- You want a budget-friendly comforter. While I do think this comforter is a great value (with a current price of $119), it is still sold for a higher price than most down alternative comforters. If money is a serious issue, you might want to consider a down alternative.
- You require a warm weather comforter. The Egyptian Bedding is quite breathable, but it still might be too warm during the summer and warmer months. When I tried the comforter on some hotter nights, I did have to move out from beneath it because I was overheating somewhat. If you are looking for a comforter for warmer nights, I would consider something lighter.
- The cover is woven with 600 thread count, 100 percent Egyptian cotton.
- The fill is 60 ounces of 750 fill power Siberian Goose down.
- The comforter is constructed with baffle boxes and a double needle stitch.
- Eight tabs are attached at the corners and along the edge. These are there to anchor the comforter within a duvet cover.
- The Queen-size dimensions are 90″ x 90″.
The outer shell of the Egyptian Bedding is very soft to the touch. I can really feel the difference that 600 thread count Egyptian cotton makes. While lying under the comforter, it did not feel rough against my skin.
Again, if you want to add a duvet cover for aesthetic or feel purposes, this comforter can be used as a duvet insert. It has eight tabs, which makes it easy to secure the comforter within a duvet cover.
Loft And Body
This Egyptian Bedding comforter is very lofty and rises inches above the mattress.
There are two features that give the comforter such a full body. First, the comforter is constructed with a baffle box design. This keeps the down fill evenly distributed throughout the comforter. It also creates a three-dimensional space for the down to fully expand. Second, the down has a high fill power of over 750. This means it has a nice, natural loft.
Breathability And Warmth
The comforter is advertised as “All-Season.” However, I found it to be more of a cold or temperate weather comforter. On warmer nights, I needed to move out from underneath the comforter to keep myself from overheating.
However, even for a warmer comforter, it didn’t smother or stifle me. This often happens when I use heavier down alternative comforters. This comforter, on the other hand, had plenty of airflow, and it didn’t feel stuffy at all.
As with most down comforters, the company recommends that you take the comforter to the dry cleaner for proper cleaning.
You can spot-clean specific stains. Or, if you are worried about washing, try using a duvet cover.

If you are looking for a fluffy down comforter but don’t want to spend $300, this could be a great deal. It gives you that cloud-like down experience and should keep you warm without making you feel stuffy. However, if you need a comforter for the warmer months or struggle with allergies, you might want to look elsewhere.
