I tend to buy comforters several times a year, I either get tired of them or I don�t like them almost immediately. I�ve been most happy with this duvet set. I use the light side in the summer and the dark side in the winter. I bought a light weight down insert at the same time and that works well year-round . I especially like the shams. They are also completely reversible so that you can mix and match the dark in the light patterns of the shams with the duvet.
