Fully seam-sealed waterproof protection for the worst mountain weather, with an exceptionally breathable multilayer barrier for maximized vapor transport during high-output activities.

Dave Hahn

"The BC Downlight is downright made right. I appreciate the extra length for keeping the belt/harness exposure zone warm and cozy. The piece is just lofty enough to keep me comfortable, but not so thick that it gets in my way. I love being able to wear it out in a messy snow squall without worrying about my feathers getting wet."

Great jacket for tall people

Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's BC Downlight StormDown Jacket:

I really like this jacket. I am 6'3" and 185lbs athletic build size 31" waist. It's generally very hard to find medium tall's specially in hire end jackets. This jacket fits perfectly. Not too bulky with a great arm length.

I really like the hood, not big enough for a helmet but not what I would use this jacket for. I like that the material is all rip stop and all of the zippers have rubber seals. The vented arm pits are a nice touch as well. This is not a stuff jacket so it's really for around town and not for mountaineering.

Dislikes, the hidden bungees for the hood are a nice touch but not convenient. And the plastic tipped ends sit right on the top of my chest. They sometime dig in if I am wearing something light under the jacket.

preliminary review, promising

Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's BC Downlight StormDown Jacket:

Just bought as end of the season clearance item, so I have not had a chance to actually test how it works in the cold - will have to update next winter. But this jacket looks to be what I was looking for. I have a very nice REI light down puffy jacket that works well in mid thirties to forties for regular wear through the winter in Seattle (unless raining hard, typical Seattle drizzle OK). But I wanted something warmer for snowshoeing and winter travel in the mountains nearby. I also have the EB Peak XV jacket, which is unbelievably warm - in fact too warm for most activities or for any weather in Seattle; it's great for super cold low activity conditions. So after a season of learning what I need, I began looking around at jackets made by multiple companies for the right in between jacket. Features like outer chest pocket and internal mesh pockets were crucial too (pit zips and waterproof are real pluses as well). This one seems to meet my expectations and it was possible to get at reasonable price compared to some of the competition.

I must say that I am a little concerned and confused about the many comments saying that it isn't warm enough. But most reviewers say that it is very warm for such a lightweight jacket. Is this due to different expectations? Are some purchasers not aware that Eddie Bauer rates this not as "warmer", not "warmest" and that this is meant to be a jacket used for activity rather than a heavy parka? Or is there a quality control issue which causes a small number of these jackets to be poorly made?

Versatile

Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's BC Downlight StormDown Jacket:

This jacket is very versatile. I use it to travel between coastal and central climates and like to have one jacket for both rains and winter. This one does so very well.
The body fits skinny young people so I bought a size up to allow for an extra sweater on a mature body. The sleeves are only a bit longer than I would like, not an issue.
