Summary List Placement
Brooklinen has been one of our favorite bedding companies for years, making sheets and comforters we can’t sleep without.
I tested Brooklinen’s All-Season Down Alternative Comforter ($180+) because I’m sensitive to a never-ending list of allergens and typically run cold.
It was a perfect weight and regulated my temperature through the night.
Right now, it’s also on sale for 10% off, no promo code needed.

In college, I wanted crisp hotel-caliber sheets for my bed, but I didn’t want to pay an outrageous amount of money for them. Brooklinen, an online startup that is known for its luxurious bedding at relatively reasonable prices, was my answer.
I used Brooklinen’s Luxe Core Sheet Set to completely transform my bed, and because of my sheets, I actually looked forward to sleeping on a twin-size dorm bed every night. But while I’ve considered the brand’s sheets a staple for years now, I only recently tested one of their comforters.
Brooklinen’s comforters are available in three sizes — Twin/Twin XL, Full/Queen, and King/California King — and customers can choose between two different fills: natural down and down alternative. Both types of comforters have 400-thread count cotton sateen shells and feature baffle-box construction, a method where the comforter is sewn in squares or pockets, and each pocket is stuffed with the same amount of fill, ensuring even warmth throughout.
If you’re new to comforter-shopping, the term ‘fill power’ refers to the measure of the down filling’s fluffiness. The scale typically starts at 400 and tops out at 900, and the higher the number, the more insulating the comforter will be. Brooklinen’s comforters come in two weights: ‘all-season,’ which features 700 fill power, and ‘lightweight,’ with a slightly cooler 600 fill power. And while we’re on the topic of fluffiness, the comforters are fully fluffed as soon as you take them out of the box, so there’s no waiting for them to reshape.
While Brooklinen’s comforters are clearly made with care, their most thoughtful detail just might be the loops sewn into all four corners, which prevent them from sliding around inside a duvet cover. Putting a comforter inside of a duvet cover and getting it to stay there can be quite a battle, so I’m extremely grateful for anything that can help ease the process.
Review of Brooklinen’s down alternative comforter
Since I have a myriad of allergies, I opted for the Brooklinen down alternative comforter, which is made from hypoallergenic and vegan polyfill microfibers that have been designed to mimic the feel of natural down. I chose the all-season weight, which contains …read more
