In December 2021, Sam (featured here) wanted to buy her parents a down comforter. After being dissatisfied with a different, lower-quality product, she checked the label of the comforter she’d been using (and loving) for 30 years. Lo and behold, it was Down To Basics! Watch her full review here:
More Reviews of Down Comforters and Down Pillows by Down To Basics
I’m a big fan of down comforters. I own, and have owned, several good comforters from a variety of companies. (I know that one person shouldn’t own so many comforters, but I really like them.) I love the feel of a good comforter, how warm and cozy they make you feel. So when I read their claim that their comforter is so great – “the best”, I was to say the least, skeptical. Boy, was I surprised. This comforter, somehow, in some way, takes it to the next level. It is so soft!
Their cotton batiste shell is amazing – perhaps the best batiste I’ve found, and perhaps the best part of the comforter. (If you’re looking for great cotton, batiste is the best, though it can be too thin for some use.) Their batiste is so soft, it feels wonderful and what I’d call “clean”, an unusual feel in a cotton. It’s so thin and nice. And their diamond chambers do leave room for the down to loft. The light fabric combined with large chambers produces an amazing lightness for the comforter – it feels close to magic.
Highly recommended! (five stars)

The bed is a bag of marshmallows with sheets made out of butter. Never in my life have I been in a bed that made me feel more comfortable, nurtured and yummy.

I suffer from Fibromyalgia and was at Miraval Spa in Austin, as a treat from My friends, to help me with my illness and Cancer diagnosis. When I slept in their bed and with your comforter, I had not slept like That in probably 5 years, the absolute truth. I started doing research and found your place on line, I knew I had to try to find a way to have that comforter. Sleep does not come easy for me, but i’m convinced your comforter and me were meant to be together.

Recently my 10-year old son was gifted a travel comforter from Down to Basics. He absolutely loves it! When we go on any trips, it is one of the first items he packs. He loves it so much that I walked in on his demonstrating the ease and versatility of it to his cousins. He folded the comforter into the standard pillow and then the travel pillow size without my instruction. When I peak in on him sleeping, he always has it snuggled under his arm. He loved it so much I then purchased one for my other son. He loves it too and sleeps with it always.

Susan, I’ve been a fan of yours for years but also of your down duvets, the first of which I bought 26 years ago— think of it! 26 years of luxurious, irresistible sleep on the coldest nights — and a down “blanket” all the other unpredictable New Jersey nights. London embraces you, we ALL do– no need for “sleep labs” if you know ” Down to Basics” and Susan!!!

I cannot tell you how much our patients continually adore the pillow and sham you provide to us. Susan, your pillows are one of our greatest amenities.

Thank you for the beautiful crib down comforter for my son. I didn’t expect it to be as luxuriously fluffy as it is! My son was diving into the comforter and cuddling up into it, at the same time making cooing exclamations.

We just spent the most luxurious weekend at the Charles Hotel in Boston, MA on your featherbeds and pillows. The featherbeds were amazing and I was able to find out what kind it was. But the options on the pillows are too numerous. Can you please share who supplied the pillows? They were absolutely WONDERFUL!!

I have been a huge fan of your super light Siberian goose down Diagon® comforter purchased some years ago! The comforter is still like new and I thoroughly enjoy the “lofty” light coziness it envelops me in at night. The quality of this product is simply unsurpassed! My needs have since expanded and I find myself purchasing a second such comforter – these are simply the best of the best comforters by far on the market and well worth the investment.

Just wanted to let you know that I used my travel pillow / blanket on my flight from NY to LA yesterday. It was freezing on the plane, so my down blanket was a life-saver! I love it so much, thank you! I would like to buy two more. I think they make great gifts.

I was recently privileged with an opportunity to give a newly diagnosed cancer patient your blanket and it was a great experience to see their smile, joy and appreciation of such a thoughtful and tangible act of care. Seeing their happiness was an amazing experience for me. I send my gratitude to you for your generosity and providing such a wonderful product that gives comfort to one who is in discomfort.
