I came across Buffy the same way I do every other direct-to-consumer company: via a subway ad with Easter egg-hues and ethnically ambiguous 30-something models. Buffy’s ads showed said models wrapped in a big white blanket, which was billed as “the earth’s softest comforter.”

Per usual, I wanted to chuckle and throw the name on my mental list of all the “disruptive” cookie cutters that have emerged since 2015. But I couldn’t. The comforter looked too damn comfy.

A couple weeks later, moving into a new apartment, I unwrapped a Buffy Cloud from its air-vacuumed case. I’d never had a premium comforter before, and also never felt like I needed one. But I was buying new bedding, did a little research and decided to Just Do It. A few months after that, I’m ready to confirm Buffy’s subway claim. This is the best comforter on the planet, and possibly in the entire Milky Way.

Here’s why.

For starters, Buffy adequately fulfills any comforter’s fundamental task: it yields serious comfiness. I chalk this up to its A) puffiness and B) softness. Over 50% of Americans sleep partially clothed, which means a comforter is often in direct contact with one’s skin. A soothing, satin-y touch is essential.

But more importantly, a good comforter in 2019 regulates body temperature. In the olden days, manufacturers could be excused for producing heavy, all-enveloping bed toppers. We only hacked winter in the last 100 years or so, and in the summer months lighter blankets (or nothing) would do just fine. But the Buffy, I quickly noticed, is a steadfast teammate no matter the season. Whether you’re overheating or forgot to close a window, it feels just the same. And as good sleep is all about a steady, reliable sleeping environs, that’s an unbeatable trait.

That hot/cold expertise is a byproduct of Buffy’s unique construction, a gossamer meshing of high-end eucalyptus fibers and recycled polyester. The eucalyptus fibers are milled at a family-owned factory that goes back two generations, while the polyester comes from plastic bottles; Buffy has now kept more than six million from oceans and landfill.

In short, Buffy isn’t a marketing company with a gift shop selling bed comforters. These are the real deal, and have made me a greedy snoozer in recent weeks. We recommend you join the club, and you won’t find a better time than now, as they’re currently available with a slight discount from Huckberry.
