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.

        This thing is warm as heck, tough as nails and smartly made. I have been out in the polar vortex a few times (ice fishing and snow blowing) and I'm in love. Tough as nails, and i cant tell you how much i love that theres a nice little buff tucked in the chest pocket on a string so you never lose it.

        Very warm but leaks

        • Very Warm

        Cons

        • It leaks feathers

        Best Uses

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

          This is by far the best jacket I have had and I really loved wearing it. But it had a huge flaw: it leaks feathers. I just couldn't stand going to work and picking down feathers from my shirt every time. After tolerating this problem for a month, I had no choice but to return it. It's a shame because Eddie Bauer could have done more quality testing before releasing this expensive jacket for sale to customers.

          High Functional

          By WinterMann5000

          from Quebec

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

          I purchased a large. I'm 5'11 and weigh approx 215 lbs. It fit great. Good jacket length and arm length. No restricted movement. Found the pockets very functional and positioned at good height. I wish the neck was longer and came up to my nose. Its current design does not protect your face. Yes, there is an included neck/face gator but it would be more practical if the neck were just longer. I don't find the shoulder pocket to be very practical, wouldn't miss it if it was removed. Ultimately I returned it because the two colour options just didn't work with me. I wore the grey for about a week and I kept getting comments that I looked like a tactical police force. Tried the brown, again, looked like a forestry worker. I understand this might not be important to people, but a solid black would be the ultimate jacket I could wear outside to work while also wearing it in more causal environments. Build Quality A++.
