Intro To Buffy Comforter Reviews

Buffy’s Breeze comforter is the latest addition to the brand’s product catalog, and the cooler counterpart to the brand’s existing comforter called the Buffy Cloud Comforter. Breeze is specifically designed to keep hot sleepers or folks in hot environments cooler and more comfortable while they sleep.

If you’re a hot sleeper or live in a particularly hot region, you probably know how it feels to lay restless in the middle of the night in a constant battle between being too hot for your comforter, but also not wanting to sleep without a cover to curl up with. We think the Buffy Breeze comforter, as you’ll see below, does a great job at keeping you from overheating during the night.

Buffy Breeze Comforter Materials

If you were to take away every part of Buffy’s Breeze comforter that wasn’t derived from nature, all you’d be left with is the stitching that holds everything together. And according to Buffy’s customer service department, they’re even trying to make that plant-based too.

Below are the dimensions of each blanket by size:

  • Twin/Twin XL – 70” x 90”
  • Full/Queen – 90” x 94”
  • King/ CA King – 104” x 94”

The outside of Breeze is made out of eucalyptus fabric, a biodegradable material that’s softer than cotton, and more environmentally friendly to grow because it uses less water and land. Extracting eucalyptus is also 100% cruelty-free. According to their site, every comforter saves 12 geese from being live plucked.

Buffy also took advantage of the plant’s many benefits by filling the comforter with fiber made from eucalyptus, which is more breathable than material like polyester. Another huge plus about eucalyptus fiber is its hypoallergenic properties, since it’s impervious to microscopic pests like dust mites, mold, and dirt.

Buffy Breeze Comforter Feel

As you could imagine, the Buffy Breeze comforter is on the thinner side since it’d be a little counterproductive to design a dense comforter for folks looking to stay cooler at night. We think it feels soft-to-the-touch, but more in a silky smooth way instead of a fluffy or fuzzy way.

If you’re anything like me (Slumber Yard member McKenzie Dillon), you’ve been longing for a blanket that’s perfect for summer; slightly thicker and more cozy than a sheet (because let’s face it, cuddling up to one just isn’t the same), but thinner than a traditional comforter. Breeze feels like the perfect sweet spot between the two.

We talked to the folks over at customer service, and they told us the comforter was a 300 thread count, but it feels higher since the eucalyptus fabric feels a little more luxurious than cotton or polyester does.

Buffy Cooling Comforter Price

When you consider the price of the Breeze comforter, it’s pretty comparable to any quality comforter you’d pick up from a department store like Macy’s or Bed Bath & Beyond. So it’s not super pricey, but it’s certainly not on the budget side of the spectrum either.

Twin / Twin XL$129
Full / Queen$159
King / Cal King$199

The price starts at $129 for a twin size, goes up to $219 for a full/queen size, then tops off at $199 for a king or California king. So if you’re a hot sleeper looking for a solution, it might be worth the money to get the Breeze comforter. It may, however, be a little too pricey for somebody on a super tight budget.

With that said, Buffy does run promotions and offer discounts. Either check our page, or take a look at their website to stay up-to-date.

Is It Really A Cooling Comforter?

The big question with the Breeze comforter is, how well does this cooling comforter actually relieve hot sleepers? For us, we think it did pretty darn good, and might be the best comforter for hot sleepers that we’ve tested so far.

To set the scene, the test was done by two warmer sleepers towards the end of June, in a high desert climate where it gets hot in the summer. We’re also two young adults who are too cheap to crank the AC down and keep it running. So a regular night consists of waking up at least two or three times to change positions or open a window.

Thankfully, the cooling comforter felt breathable, soothing, and we slept completely through the entire night without overheating. The website claims that Breeze makes 95% of people sleep cooler, and we conclude that we fall in line with the majority of people who try it.

Caring For Your Blanket

To protect your Breeze comforter from being damaged, the folks over at Buffy recommend you bring it to the dry cleaners instead of running it through your washer and dryer. This may be a downside to some people, especially considering white is the only color Breeze comes in right now.

So for those of you who have a high risk of getting the blanket dirty (aka you have kids, animals, or a messy S.O.), we recommend you take a look at Buffy’s duvet cover. You can keep the comforter zipped safely inside, and throw the cover in the wash when it needs a good clean up. You’ll likely still have to take your Breeze to the dry cleaners here and there, but it’ll definitely save you several trips.

Buffy Comforter Review Verdict

After testing out the Breeze comforter and reviewing the advantages of using eucalyptus as an alternative to polyester or down, we’d say it’s probably worth the money for anybody losing sleep because they’re too hot. Especially considering Buffy’s “try before you buy” policy, we think anybody considering it should give it a shot.

Buffy Comforter Ratings

  • Amazon Reviews: Amazon reviews are a bit mixed with only 55% of reviewers giving it 5 stars. Several reviewers said it didn’t actually keep them cool, but some customers said the comforter was a nice lightweight option. 
  • Reddit Reviews: A few people on Reddit claim that the comforter was almost too lightweight and not worth the price.

Buffy Breeze vs Cloud

We mainly focused on the Breeze comforter  in our Buffy bedding reviews because it’s their newest product and the comforter we’ve worked with the most, but we do want to briefly discuss the differences between Buffy Breeze vs Cloud. You can see both comforters on Buffy’s website.

We have also tested their Cloud comforter, though. In fact, one of our team members purchased it this past Prime Day—he uses it every night.

One major difference is the material used as the comforters’ filling. The Breeze uses eucalyptus fiber, but Buffy fills the Cloud Comforter with 100% BPA-Free PET water bottles. PET means polyethylene terephthalate, which is basically a different kind of polyester.

The other major difference is price, since a queen size Cloud retails for about $60 less than Breeze does. It seems to be the perfect blanket for temperature neutral sleepers, or for the cooler months when folks won’t need to use their Breeze.

We kind of look at it as a win-win, because you can order the comforter without any strings attached, then it’s donated to somebody who could really use a new blanket if you decide against it.
