When winter hits, you want to make our beds the coziest, warmest places ever. But that can be a challenge for anyone who’s a hot sleeper or prone to allergies. Down comforters are often too hot for many people, and they tend to make allergies act up. Plus, they’re pretty pricey, rarely dipping below $100. Enter down alternative comforters. They’re typically lightweight, hypoallergenic, and significantly more affordable than their down counterparts, yet they’re still plenty warm and cozy, making them useful all year long. Below, 10 of the best down alternative comforters you can find for under $100 (some as low as $30!) to help you get your cozy, comfortable sleep on.

This comforter is a favorite among AT editors and readers alike: It’s lightweight yet warm, high-quality yet affordable, and minimal yet stylish. The polyester outside and hypoallergenic fiberfill make it cool to the touch but still warm and fluffy—which works for both hot and cold sleepers. What’s really great, though, is the sleek exterior and reversible colors. It comes in white, plus a variety of contrasting tones and patterns to give you plenty of options.

With over 61,000 reviews on Amazon and an average of 4.5 stars, there’s no doubt that people love this super-affordable $30 duvet. The microfiber fill has a 300 GSM weight, so it’s not too light or too heavy, and the box stitch design keeps all the fill equally distributed. Eight corner and side loops make it easy to securely tie on your duvet cover, but if you don’t have a cover, don’t worry: This duvet comes in a selection of colors and patterns that look great on their own.

Bed Bath & Beyond

This duvet’s on the higher end of the price spectrum, but it’s worth it. Like others, it has a hypoallergenic polyester fill, but this one’s cover is made of 100 percent cotton with a 300 thread count, making it super-soft to the touch and extra breathable.

A more textured option, this comforter set trades out baffle-box construction for subway-tile quilting to create a different, more dimensional style. Combined with a seersucker technique, the quilt brings easy style to any room, and with a soft microfiber material, it’s plenty comfortable, too.

This self-titled “Ultimate All Season Comforter” may look plush and fluffy, but rest assured it really is made for all seasons. The 100 percent hypoallergenic poly-fiber fill is surprisingly lightweight—light enough for a Florida reviewer to use it year-round—and the double-brushed microfiber on the outside is soft yet crisp for added coolness and comfort. It’s a great middle-range option on the price scale.

was $79.00

This comforter is already a good deal at $80, but right now at under $30, it’s a steal. The company’s so certain you’ll love this lightweight microfiber comforter that it comes with a three-year warranty, giving you extra peace of mind.

If you like colorful and reversible comforter options, you’ll love this one from Overstock. It comes in 13 color combinations (all reversible) to give you tons of flexibility, with lots of stylish choices like rust-orange and oatmeal or ivory and sage. It’s another highly loved pick, with almost 2,000 reviews and a 4.5-star rating. And who can argue with that price tag?

Surprisingly chic for how affordable it is, this comforter from Target is a great basic option. The soft, smooth microfiber is filled with “just the right amount” of hypoallergenic polyester to keep you warm and comfortable no matter the season, and the 14-inch box sewing construction keeps that fill evenly distributed while creating a slightly more dramatic sense of style. Bonus: The three trendy color options (navy, sage, and white) can look great in nearly any space.

Get hotel-worthy luxury every single night with this fluffy oversized comforter. It’s got a cotton cover with a 500 thread count for premium softness, and the polyester fill brings in plenty of warmth (its warmth rating is “extra warmth,” so it’s a good option for people who like to keep things nice and toasty, as the more-than-900 reviewers have attested). The silky damask-striped weave adds an extra touch of luxury to this display-worthy comforter—all for just over $80.

Another well-loved Amazon product (it has an average 4.7-star rating from over 11,000 reviews), this mid-range comforter goes heavy on both quality and style. The polyfill is wrapped in a soft-brushed fabric cover that feels great against your skin and doesn’t make any noise when it moves. One reviewer said they’d always had expensive down comforters but wanted something cheaper yet still warm for their mountain cabin. “I was surprised at the quality and how comfy it is,” they wrote. Plus, it looks great on its own and comes in a small selection of colors and styles.
