The Best Comforter L.L.Bean’s Baffle-Box Stitch Down Comforter
We tested six new comforters this year, and the L.L.Bean Baffle-Box Down Comforter is still our favorite. It keeps you comfortably warm, is generously sized, and has a great return policy and warranty. It is also the lightest comforter we tested under $400. We have a down alternative pick too, if you suffer from allergies.   Read More >
The Best Facial Tissue Puffs Basic Facial Tissues
We spent nearly 40 hours researching and testing more than a dozen well-liked facial tissues to find the best for most people. Puffs Basic facial tissue aced all our tests, first with a panel of sniffly humans and then with $40,000 worth equipment in an engineering lab. They're the most absorbent and softest non-lotion tissues we tested. Plus, Puffs cost the least per tissue. But if you’re looking for a lotion tissue or one made from recycled materials (shudder…), we have other recommendations as well.   Read More >
The Best Slippers Haflinger AT
We recommend the $89 Haflinger AT slippers for keeping your feet warm and sweat-free when it’s cold out. We spent more than 30 hours researching and tested 12 slippers hands-on (or rather, feet-on), and we found the Haflingers had the best combination of comfort, warmth, and moisture wicking compared to top competitors. And they get better and better the more you wear them in. Made of boiled wool, they’re soft but not stifling, super comfy, easy to keep clean, and, thanks to their latex hardsole, you can wear them for a quick jaunt outside to the corner store or the mailbox.    Read More >
The Best Sheets L.L.Bean’s 280-Thread-Count Pima Cotton Percale Sheets
We spend up to a third of our lives sleeping, so the comfort and performance of your bed sheets should be just as important as (or greater than) that of the clothes you wear everyday. L.L.Bean’s 280-thread-count Pima Cotton Percale Sheets combine superior sweat wicking, heat retention, and durability to make the best sheets I’ve ever slept on. They’re about $150 for a queen set, but I dare you to find a better set of sheets at this price.    Read More >
The Best Bed Pillows Premier Down-Like Personal Choice Density Pillow
If you need a general-purpose bed pillow that will suit a range of different sleeping styles, we suggest the Premier Down-Like Personal Choice Density Pillow (~$27 for two). Its balance of loft, cushiness, support and value earned it high praise among all four of our testers and top marks across most categories at Sleep Like the Dead.    Read More >
