Not sure how long these will last http://13deals.com/index.php
It might be worth buying 1 or 2 at that price, but I wouldn't harbor high expectation from that down. Downlite.com sells "hotel pillows" advertised with 50/50 fill (feathers/down) which seems to be a good combination of softness & support for a pillow; not so much for backpacking quilts.

I doubt these are very high quality down. Despite the 100% down, it does state "100% Natural Goose Filling Feather Down (will contain feathers and down)". And the price lends to that assessment.

Unless you can see the legal disclosure tag there is virtuaally no way of knowing what the fill is except by trust of the makers. I bought some pillows for our bedroom which were labeled 100% 650 fill power down on the outside packaging. The disclosure tag revealed that 50% of the fill was 650 fill power down and 50% was feathers. But the down was 100% down. The marketers can be just short of deceptive. I do not recommend the cheap pillow and quilt deals that you can find on-line.

Not something I'd go for. Some down pillows have a core in the center that is filled with other material....and this description is really not a description at all. Stick with Bloomingdales Luxe pillows.
Nice site though...never seen it before.

What would you guys recommend for those that are allergic to down?
Also keep looking for close out sales on Bloomingdale luxe pillows by randomly doing google searches here and there.
