Argos Value Range Cosy Sleeper 13.5 Tog Duvet
Advantages: Cheap, Efficient, Warm, Comfortable, Light, Soft
Disadvantages: Cover not Cotton
I decided i wanted to buy some extra duvet covers with the weather being so cold lately and showing no signs of retreating i wanted a two doubles, money being tight so soon after christmas they also had to be relatively cheap without compromising any warmth quality.
I regularly buy household item from Argos and came across these whilst browsing the site online, i decided to give them a try at a price of £9.99, i did however feel a little sceptical due to them being part of the value range and also being so cheap but based on the hundreds of positive ratings on the site i reserved two to collect the same day.

The packaging wes very basic and compact, the duvet's were wrapped in a plastic cover that you simply broke into and stretched open to reveal the duvet, at first sight the duvet does look very poor quaility but upon opening the duvet fluffed out,plumped up and actually looked a decent thickness.
Admittedly the covering was not too appealing either and was definitely not cotton but it did feel very light and airey, the shape seemed fine though and i think it was the 'cheap look' of the product that put me off at this point so i had to remind myself i had not bought the product for how it looked i had bought it for a practical purpose as a means to keeping us warmer on these colder nights, after all the duvet could be inserted into a cotton duvet cover and no one would notice the overall look of the product itself, and for this price i could hardly complain.
==IS IT WARM?==
Wow this product totally exceeded my expectations, it kept us perfectly warm and snug all night, it felt lovely and soft and also very light and comfortable, we were definitely snug as a bug under this duvet, it was surprisingly cozy and did not feel heavy at all which is why the warmth also surprised me, i had paid up to five times as much for products of this size and tog in the past but this duvet beat them all hands down for warmth and comfort.
I used to get annoyed at heavy duvets that restricted movement and made you feel pinned to the bed and disliked the feel as they seemed un-breatheable and contributed to making you feel very sweaty after a short time so i was forever throwing the duvet on and off never finding that perfect balance between being toasty but not sweaty, this duvet has cracked it in my opinion, it is reasonably thick but very light enough to still breathe allowing you to be snug at the perfect temperature.
I am very pleased with the warmth this duvet provides, it does even feel warmer than a 13.5 tog and i would say this duvet is too warm for the summer months but perfect for this time of year, it gets really warm on a cold night but also as important it is really light and very comfortable.
Well firstly i think this is a great product at a great price, why pay more than you have to when this does as good a job as products costing five times as much! i am so glad i purchased this duvet and i will definitely be buying more from this range in the near future, it cannot be beated on value for money in my opinion and it totally full fills it's purpose, worth every single penny and very affordable at such an amazing price.
I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone and everyone, just do not be fooled by the initial first impression like i was, there has been times in the past when i have returned products for not 'looking' like good quality products once opened without even trying them out and giving them a chance first, i am very glad and pleased i gave this product that chance to prove to me that it had the ability to do what it said on the tin so to speak and i have again learnt my lesson on not judging products on looks alone in the future.
