    Comments about Men|Outerwear|Parkas Men's Vinson Down Parka:

    I really want to love this jacket. I like how it looks, and am satisfied with how warm it is, but after owning it for a few months I can say it's not very high quality - at least not up to what I expect for the cost, or from EB. The fabric around the arms and pockets is fraying and pilling up, the zipper is of an inferior quality to other cheaper jackets I own, and I can't wear it anywhere unless I'm cool with looking like I was attacked by geese, because it LEAKS FEATHERS like crazy. Seriously, it's wild. I thought it would decrease, but I get more comments about the feathers than I do about the jacket. I'm glad EB has such a great guarantee, because this jacket just doesn't quite meet their standards.

    Leaks down, can't exchange

      Comments about Men|Outerwear|Parkas Men's Vinson Down Parka:

      I purchased this jacket and loved the warmth. It fit great. The problem is that it leaked down. I called customer service and they said they could not exchange it until they had more in stock. They did not know when that would be and they could not backorder my size. The two options they provided me was to give me my money back or for me to wait until the jackets are in stock to order. This means that I need to watch their website for its availability and then call back. I love the jacket, want an exchange, but hate that they will not allow me to backorder, want me to check the site for then it's in stock, and that I am stuck with a jacket that leaks down until they can eventually get me a replacement (they have no idea when that will be).

      The best service would have been a better quality assurance checking before the jacket was shipped to me to ensure there was no leak. Better customer service would be to find a way to exchange my jacket for an identical jacket now (what I prefer) or allow me to backorder the replacement so I dont need to check regularly for the identical jacket.

      Warm, some cold spots at low temperature, feather LEAKS

      By Vic

      from Ontario

      Comments about Men|Outerwear|Parkas Men's Vinson Down Parka:

      This jacket keeps warmth to certain degree, I don't think it would stand the cold temperature as it claims.
      I could feel some minor cold spots when temperature drops below -15.
      The biggest problem and surprise is that the feather keeps leaking through the interior material to my suit or sweater even after a few weeks of use. I did not expect to have so much feather on my clothes after I took off this jacket in the office every morning.

      Not Up to Legendary EB Reputation

      By Reel Can

      from Alberta

      Pros

      • Incredible Warranty
      • Wind Proof

      Cons

      • Not Warm to Claimed -40 Rating, Clumsy Zipper

      Best Uses

        Comments about Men|Outerwear|Parkas Men's Vinson Down Parka:

        This parka was a warranty replacement for an Eddie Bauer Superior Polar Parka that I purchased almost 3 decades ago (great warranty). However, it is not even close to being what the Polar Parka was in its prime. It lost it windproofing and the down ceased to loft fully but before that, it was warm to the claimed 60 below rating.

        It is -8F/-22C outside with 8mph/14kmh winds. I had on two layers of down underneath, a vest and a jacket, and this coat was starting to show a lack of ability to do the claimed job, warmth at the coldest temperatures. I have had to -30 C and even with a wool layer added, the cold was tolerable meaning I was not going to freeze but warm it was not. The Polar Parka it replaced only need one layer underneath and it kept me snuggly to -40C which is the same as -40F. That coat was a gem and I wish it was still made. Add a heavy wool sweater and -60 was possible. The Vinson is a let down as it does not even come close. It has considerably less down than the Polar Parka too.

        The velcro for the cargo pockets should be in the middle of the flap: the pocket sags in the current layout. The main zipper is no where near the quality of the Polar Parka YKK. It is much much much too small with the links. I can see it having a short life.

        On the plus side, pockets are generous, 13 in all. The sleeves are well insulated but not the body.

        The hood is too stiff, like cardboard digging into your face when tied tight. The zipper when done to the top at the hood leaves NO ROOM PERIOD for an insulating layer thus being a cold leak. The baffle for the dome fasteners on the outside allows too much cold in.

        If you are looking for a true Canadian winter ready coat, this is not the parka for you. It is not warm enough and most certainly not the -40 rating. This is a pity because I have been using Eddie Bauer products for decades, my sleeping bag 37 years. What happened to that legendary deliver as claimed superior quality. I can only recommend this parka to -15C.
