How to choose the right cooling comforter for you

Look for…

  • Cooling technologies — Check the package: What kind of cooling tech does it offer, and what does it actually do? HydroCool, for example, features moisture-wicking fibers that prevent you from getting sweaty. Another popular feature, Outlast, is a NASA-developed “phase change” material that helps regulate your body temperature, preventing sweat from happening in the first place.
  • Hypoallergenic — Some materials used in comforters may cause allergic reactions. Should you have allergies, be sure to look for hypoallergenic options, especially when it comes to down—you’ll likely want to choose a down-alternative.
  • Down-alternative — More often than not, you’ll find blankets with down-alternatives that feel just as fluffy as traditional down blankets. They tend to trap less heat than all those down feathers, plus they tend to be less expensive.
  • OEKO-TEX Certified. To be OEKO-TEX certified, textile and leather products must hit certain strict OEKO-TEX safety and environmental requirements. More specifically, they must be free of harmful substances and meet environmentally and socially responsible production standards.

The Best Cooling Comforters

BUFFY

1. The Buffy Breeze

Best Overall Cooling Comforter

Hypoallergenic ✓

OEKO-TEX Certified ✓

The Buffy Breeze’s fill and shell are all created from 100 percent eucalyptus, which is said to be breathable and cool to the touch, so heat can flow through the comforter without becoming trapped and you becoming overheated.

Not sure if the Breeze is for you? No worries—the brand offers a seven-night trial, so you can sleep with it for a week before deciding to keep it. If you decide to return it after that trial, you have 30 days to initiate the free return for a full refund.

What to Know Before Buying:

  • The wave-stitch pattern helps keep the temperature-regulating material in place so it doesn’t shift around unevenly
  • The eucalyptus used to make the blankets’ fibers is grown in renewable forests, which require 10 times less water than cotton
  • Recommended dry clean only
  • The Breeze is light and thin, not fluffy
