In every industry, including down comforters and other bedding items, there are many different companies and brand names competing for business.
While competition provides the consumer with a wide variety of choices, options, and price points for the same type of product, it also creates a lot of confusion.
Most brands exist to address the needs of a specific demographic, so the average person just needs to figure out which brand to explore when they are shopping for a particular type of product.
We have reviewed and researched a few of the most popular down comforter brands to provide you with this information in one location so you can easily make a decision.
We have also featured actual products for each of these companies to help you. The products can be purchased online, often at prices lower than in retail stores (even after shipping fees).
Amazon.com has their own private label brand called Pinzon. Their product line includes mostly household, personal care and beauty products.
Pinzon products are only available by purchasing them online through Amazon, which gives them a unique competitive advantage in this market. Since they do not run brick-and-mortar retail stores, their overhead costs are significantly lower than other brands, which translates into lower prices for consumers.
Even though Pinzon prices are very affordable, do not be deceived and instantly think that their product quality is poor. In fact, they offer excellent products that are manufactured by the same companies that make products for other quality brands.
Pinzon features two different types of down comforters called PrimaLoft and Pyrenees. A page is available here to discuss each of these and direct you to Amazon to purchase them, if you decide that one is right for you. Read More»
