    I've worn my Stormdown Hooded Jacket for two years and really like it. Its style and color are flattering; it isn't overly poofy for a down coat; and it is easy to pack for trips. Its weight is fine for temperatures from the low 20s to the upper 40s; lower if I layer up. The hood is a nice touch and makes the jacket warmer.

    I have broad shoulders, long arms, and a big bust. Eddie Bauer is one of the few retailers that offer women's tall sizes and I was delighted to find a jacket with long enough sleeves! However, its torso sizing run small. While I normally wear an L or XL tall, I had to size up to XXL tall to get a good fit across the bust and shoulders.

    I only gave it three stars for quality because the durability of the fabric is disappointing. My jacket got snagged on a branch in my back yard and ripped! (I stitched up the tear and continue wearing it.) A more durable outer fabric would not have snagged and torn so easily. Another quality problem is that the down fill is starting to work its way through the seams.

    I do consider it to be a good value for the money (I bought it on sale) and hope Eddie Bauer addresses these quality issues.

    Warm but quality suspect

    By MaryWA

    from Washington

    Comments about First Ascent|Women|Jackets & Vests Women's Downlight® StormDown® Hooded Jacket:

    I've only been wearing jacket for less than two months but the zipper on the pocket no longer closes the opening. Plus, feathers are leaking down one long seam down the back. On closer inspection, this seam was not sewn tightly. Disappointing since the jacket is nice and warm.

        Comments about First Ascent|Women|Jackets & Vests Women's Downlight® StormDown® Hooded Jacket:

        This was the worst purchase I ever made from EB. I was hoping for a good, solid down winter jacket that would keep me warm. This was NOT it. I couldn't believe the poor quality of this jacket. The channels where the down fill should be were flat and barely had any filling in them. Color was nice. The zipper was good. The pockets were okay, but there was no chest pocket for phone, cash, etc. The hood was okay, but not adjustable. I FROZE IN THIS JACKET - couldn't wear it all winter, so it sat until I returned it for a refund. I had to purchase a wool coat from another company.

        Will not be buying any more EB "down" jackets. The quality is simply not there.
