World's Best Down®

Our First Ascent guide team built this ultralight jacket for alpine climbing in cool to cold weather. Windproof ripstop polyester shell. Each cluster of the super high-loft 800 fill StormDown insulation is also treated with a DWR finish so the down retains its loft and superior insulating properties even in wet conditions.

"It's made specifically to be a very lightweight layer with down, which makes it lighter than any kind of other insulation and very compact and packable. When you wear it, you hardly know you have it on."
Ed Viesturs, Eddie Bauer Alpine Guide

Down feather leak

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

    I just purchased this jacket. When I received it I was very pleased with it, as it was light weight and very warm which is needed in NE area. I have worn the jacket about 3 times now, and I continue to little down feathers popping out, it sheds worse then my dog. By the rate the feathers are coming out, this jacket will not last one season.

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

        This item is much thinner in reality, MUCH smaller and tight. The zipper jams at the bottom right out of the bag. I can imagine it failing completely it just a few outings.

        There seems to be an EB trend this year.......everything is tighter and thinner. Say what? Also, what's with the constant, serious discounting. It's scaring me.

        I returned it immediately. Sorry, Eddie, this is number 2 this season that got returned.

        five-star jacket...

        By swamp

        from Maryland

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

        Big thumbs up on this jacket. Kinda ranks up there as a modern version of a spot-on classic like your go-to down or a good ol' denim jacket or your trusty leather jacket, etc. Feels like you're slipping on a light wind-breaker, instantly starts warming - and it holds 'way more warmth than it feels like it should. Really nice design in fit as well as function. Folds easily into gym cubbies, packs down to next-to-nothing. I bought the vest version of this last year and have been super pleased with the vest as well. Big thumbs up on both.

        Big Disappointment

        By Eddie Buyer

        from Pennsylvania

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

        This jacket is more like a nylon jacket-not a down filled jacket. There is little down (if any) between layers. I will be returning this and looking elsewhere for a down filled packable nylon jacket.
