Ultimate Baffle Goose Down Comforter
I am a long time Lands End fan, especially for their bedding. This comforter does not live up to it's claim.
The fill is sparce within each box. I am having to double the comforter over itself to keep warm. I will be returning it.

excellent comforter, but no twin size
We bought this comforter in the Full/Queen size as a gift for someone with a full size bed. The recipient loved the comforter but it was just overwhelmingly too large. So, it was reluctantly returned. We were hoping it would become available in a twin size, we would definitely buy it!

If this is the Ultimate comforter, I hesitate to think what the others are like. It may be 700 fill power, but there isn't enough of it. I don't think it will be warm enough, even though we live in the south of France. I give it 2 stars because the construction seems reasonably good.
I keep trying to remain loyal to Lands' End, even paying international shipping, but the quality of their bedding products (in particular) has declined so much that I'm starting to look elsewhere. I have some 250-count percale sheets from LE that must be at least 15 years old, and they're still great. I have percale sheets, and even 500-count sateen sheets from about 5 years ago, and they're much more substantial than what's being offered now by LE. Even the 600-count sheets I bought recently are so thin, I'm afraid someone will put a foot through them.
I think this comforter is the last straw.
LE, if you're reading this, PLEASE bring back the quality you used to have.

We love it. Very Warm!
To tell the truth this is our first down comforter and I only wish I bought one 30 years ago. This is very warm. I have never been cold using this comforter. I am looking for a cooler one for the summer. We live in the Midwest and heat with wood.

Nice, but not enough feathers to justify price
I bought the Elite Goosedown comforter first. I froze the first night (see my review). So, I decided to give this one, the Ultimate comforter a try. Not warm enough either. SO, I put BOTH comforters on together in one standard Queen duvet cover and that was about right for weather that was minus 12 centigrade outside. I am keeping both of the comforters, though I feel that spending this kind of money for two light down comforters is extreme. When it is described as "warmer" and "warmest", it needs to be globally speaking. I know IKEA's description of warmest is the equivalent of the warmth of Lands Ends' two down comforters together. To make my point, the feathers are sparse enough that BOTH comforters (and one of them I ordered is a Supersized Queen), fit into a standard Queen sized duvet cover without bulging or being bulky! Put it this way, a lot of feathers equals a lot of warmth; few feathers equals little warmth. There are few feathers in these comforters.
However, I am keeping them for the generous sizing that is hard to find.
I also love how the loops available for tying into a duvet cover so it makes having two comforters in one duvet cover plausible without them sliding around.
I am living in Canada, it is winter, and we just had a cold snap. One of these comforters would be just fine as long as it is not too many degrees below zero. There is little to no difference in warmth between the elite comforter and the ultimate comforter, so save yourself the money and buy the cheapest of the two.
