Live Your Adventure®

An Eddie Bauer Original. First created for the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II, the B-9 Parka and matching A-8 Flight Pants made up what the USAAF called the "Cold Weather Buoyancy Flight Suit"—their first that was down insulated. Today we've given it a cotton/nylon shell with StormRepel® DWR finish to shed moisture, 650 fill Premium Down insulation, and underarm gussets for extended mobility.

  • 61% cotton/39% nylon
  • Responsible Down Standard (RDS)-certified down insulation. Certified by Control Union. More About RDS
  • Removable throat guard/hood strap
  • Full zip front with button storm flap
  • Interior chest pocket
  • Average length: Reg 30"
  • Machine wash
  • Imported
FIT
  • Classic: Our most universal fit. Not too slim, not too relaxed on body. Designed to fit over midweight layers.

    Comments about Men|Outerwear|Parkas Men's B-9 Down Parka:

    It's wonderful to be able to acquire a classic WW 2 garment 70 years after it was originally issued.
    Of the original 50000 B-9's ordered by the USAAF very few can be found in wearable condition.

    SUPER WARM

    Comments about Men|Outerwear|Parkas Men's B-9 Down Parka:

    Probably the warmest jacket I own. In 20 degree weather, I was able to get away with wearing only a single long sleeved t-shirt or baselayer underneath while still staying super warm. As previous reviewers mentioned, there isn't a lot of room under the jacket to really layer up, but I don't think it's needed given how warm this jacket is.

    Because of the warmth, I would say the only drawback is that this jacket is pretty dense and it won't pack away as well as easily as a lighter EB First Ascent jacket would. Overall, really unique jacket if you like the look, it pairs well with jeans.

    Congrats on making a combat proven classic even better!

    Comments about Men|Outerwear|Parkas Men's B-9 Down Parka:

    Bought for a recent cold spell in Oregon, < 20 F for nearly three weeks with wind chill in the teens to single digits and didn't feel a thing walking to and from public transportation. The large looks great, fits perfect with medium layers (shirt with thin sweater), 5'10" athletic build 44 inch chest. With the hood up I feel like Han Solo in Empire Strikes back on Hoth!

    Good quality coat, but...

    Coat was very nice and stylish, but the cuffed sleeved ruined it for me.
