Feather mattress toppers, also called featherbeds, typically contain feathers, down, or a combination of the two. The down and feathers used in a topper may come from ducks, geese, or both. Feather toppers are perhaps best known for their softness and luxury, but many sleepers also appreciate their breathability, responsiveness, and added support.
The Parachute Down Mattress Topper is a luxury topper that balances plushness and support. This 550 fill power feather bed is constructed of two chambers. The top chamber has a softer feel for surface-level cushioning, while the bottom chamber is firmer to limit sagging and sinkage.
Premium, all-natural European white down makes up the topper fill. In total, it contains 85 percent down and 15 percent down and feather fibers. The use of primarily down gives the topper an especially soft, cozy feel without as much risk of feather quill shafts poking out. A sateen cotton shell encases the fill and lets airflow into and out of the topper so that excessive heat can escape.
Thanks to its baffle box construction, the down and feather fill fluffs up nicely and stays evenly distributed across the surface. This topper measures 3 inches thick, leaving plenty of room for the sleeper to sink in and enjoy a luxury hotel feel. Parachute uses down which has been certified by the Responsible Down Standard, meaning the birds were cared for following certain guidelines about humane treatment. The topper is dry clean only.
In addition to its accessible price-point, the Baffle Box Featherbed qualifies for free ground shipping anywhere in the contiguous U.S. Pacific Coast allows returns within 30 days if you are dissatisfied with the topper, or if you experience symptoms of a feather allergy. The featherbed is further backed by a 3-year warranty.
The fill primarily consists of white Hungarian goose feathers that provide excellent reinforcement along with a lofty feel people have come to expect from this type of topper. These materials have been certified by the Responsible Down Standard, ensuring no animals are harmed or mistreated in order to produce the topper.
The feathers have earned certification from the Responsible Down Standard, ensuring the geese are treated humanely during each step of the extraction process. This should appeal to animal-conscious individuals. An approachable price-point also makes the topper a good option for shoppers on a budget. Twin, full, queen, and king sizes are available. Shipping is free within the contiguous U.S. and returns are permitted within 30 nights.
What is comfortable varies between individuals, so a wide array of mattress toppers are available to suit diverse preferences. Even between feather toppers, there are distinct differences in softness, supportiveness, materials, and more. This section will highlight some of the key differentiating factors that make each topper unique.
These are some of the main factors to consider as you consider a feather mattress topper. While some of these factors may not be as important to you as others, most shoppers will want to prioritize a few of these items over the rest to help find the best topper for them.
PriceBecause down and feathers vary widely in price, so do mattress toppers that use these materials. Budget-friendly options can cost less than $100, while some luxury options are over $1,000. However, most feather toppers cost between $100 and $300.
Sleeping PositionYour preferred sleeping position affects your pressure points and spinal alignment, so it is an important factor in determining which feather topper is best for you.
Side sleepers may prefer a feather topper with more cushioning to reduce pressure buildup around their hips and shoulders. Down fill usually adds plushness, so a topper with more down may appeal to side sleepers. Back and stomach sleepers usually need more support to keep their spines well aligned, so they may prefer a topper with a significant feather layer to help prevent them from sinking in excessively.
ThicknessThe thickness of a feather topper influences how significantly it alters the feel of your existing mattress. If you like the feel of your existing bed, a thin feather topper can provide a bit of plushness. If your existing bed is too soft or too firm, a thicker topper can adjust the feel so that it more closely matches your needs and preferences.
Pressure ReliefFeathers and down do not contour to the body and redistribute weight like memory foam, polyfoam, and latex, so a feather topper may not relieve pressure as much as some alternatives. However, some sleepers feel the cushioning of a feather topper reduces their pressure points.
The pressure-relieving properties of a feather topper depend largely on its thickness and materials. While most feather toppers can relieve pressure to an extent, thicker toppers and those that contain down typically provide more cushioning than thinner toppers and those with exclusively feather fill.

Each style of feather bed is constructed differently to provide support for each individual. To further customize your sleep experience, Down & Feather crafts each down feather bed with your specific fill power to your liking.
Feather beds and goose down mattress toppers can be interchangeable terms at times. However, the difference with our down feather mattress is that it contains both feathers and down, providing the mattress topper with a little extra support. Meanwhile our goose down mattress is completely filled with down for the highest quality sleep.
Our Classic Feather Bed, or feather mattress topper, is a traditional three channel (75%) feather, (25%) down, blend designed for those that like a big billowy look and feel to their beds. You don't sleep \"on it\" as much as you sleep \"in it\". These feather beds are VERY thick, so thick in fact, that when you lay down on the feather mattress night after night you realize you are sleeping in a very shallow channel created by the weight of your body while sleeping. It's very cozy and warm. When you change the fitted sheet or Feather Bed protector, which we highly recommend you use, many of our customers take that opportunity to re-fluff their feather and down feather bed so it's like new. It's like sleeping \"in\" a warm cloud. Since this feather and down blended feather bed is made with Hungarian goose feathers it's not uncommon for a feather quill to poke through the 230 thread count Egyptian cotton when fluffed or jumped on.
Although our all goose down feather bed, or mattress topper, is called a \"feather bed,\" we have meticulously sorted all the feathers that could poke from the down clusters to bring you the ultimate in luxury, a Hungarian white goose down mattress topper of the finest quality and softness. After we try to remove the feathers from the down clusters we stuff them into a 12\" baffle box design edged with a 2\" gusset to allow the Hungarian white goose down to reach their maximum loft. A baffle box designed feather bed, or in this case down mattress topper, is the most difficult design to manufacture and fill with material, down clusters, that simply float away with your every breath. These are very light, very soft, and very difficult to make but the result is unsurpassed in the world of down mattress toppers.
Unlike our Classic three (3) channel feather bed our baffle box design prevents our Hungarian goose down from shifting. If you can imagine two flat sheets laid one on top of the other and then sewn together without actually touching each other, almost like twelve 12\" pizza boxes sewn together and filled with Hungarian goose down, then you have some idea how difficult this design is to build. The top and the bottom sheets, which are actually called 'ticking' or sometimes the 'shell', are separated by another piece of fabric, approximately 2\" in height, which then completes the baffle, connecting the two sheets. This design allows the goose down to reach its maximum loft without being constrained by the outer shell, or ticking, of our goose down mattress topper.
When it comes to our goose down beds fill power still means finer quality. However, when it comes to something that you sleep on, like a feather bed, and not under, like a down comforter, fill power means resilience and longevity. The higher the fill power the higher the quality, the higher the quality the larger the down cluster, the larger the down cluster the more resilient and longer it will last. So a higher fill power feather bed or mattress topper will last longer and provide support longer than a feather bed or mattress topper of lower fill power. So spending the extra money on a higher fill power feather bed means it won't need replacing as soon as a feather bed with a lower fill power. It may be more expensive but it is certainly a better value.
