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

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

I've had this jacket for 2 years. I think the cut is stylish, the down is a nice high quality/ high loft (but there is just not much of it as it is designed as a light jacket). It sheds a light down and the baffle stitching has pulled in places, but nothing too bad. This is not going to be a total warm winter jacket if you live in the Mid-atlantic/ North.
Note the "low activity temp rating" of 45 that is listed by EB. This is accurate in my opinion. If you are walking into a store or across campus, watching a game outside, or typical suburban stuff you will be COLD in this in the 30's. That said with a nice base layer and heavy shell you will be warm on a ski lift when it is 20 with a breeze (did that Monday). This jacket shines when you are moving a bit (hiking) and treat it as a mid-layer. would tend to think of this as a warm as a heavy sweatshirt, but because of the nylon and compression it layers very well.

If you need a true, stand-alone warm winter jacket you are probably going to need something around 20 oz to 2 pounds (considering a light weight nylon, and the weight being a high quality insulation like 600+ down, primaloft gold etc.)

Saved our family-time!

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

We recently finished a day of skiing and tubing in 22-degree partly-cloudy weather with light winds. On arrival to the ski hill I noticed that even though I'd packed all the other gear for the family I'd forgotten my heavy jacket. At the time I was only wearing on my torso a next-to-skin long sleeve undershirt, a light fleece shirt, and this jacket. I also wore my neck gaiter, helmet, lined ski pants, ski socks, and gloves. What surprised me was the wind-resistance and the ability to stay warm even sitting on the lifts.

There are three items that I add to improve the jacket 1). better quality zippers that feel smoother and sturdier 2). an adjustable hem to keep in the warm 3). a little more room in the belly and 4). somehow prevent the stray feather from sticking out.

What I really like about the design of the jacket are the stretchy panels behind the armpits that allow broader shoulders and chests room when crossing arms. I also really appreciate the Pertex fabric for its windproof qualities and durability. I have a different brand jacket that also uses Pertex and it's held up very well in rough conditions including playing with dogs.

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

    Poor quality zipper, always gets stuck. I really wish Eddie Bauer would address this issue as I have had two of the jackets and both had the same issue with the zipper. The jacket itself is light, warm and comfortable. I would think that for the price EB would use a quality zipper.

    Nice

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

    Nice jacket. I'm 6' 224 lbs with a gym body and I ordered an XXL. After receiving it and trying it on, the fit was good. I could have took an XL but they were out of stock. But the XXL fits good. I'm not a big coat/ parka kind of guy. I actually used it today in the Cyclone Bomb / Blizzard 2018 in NYC... I wore a sweater and a long sleeve T and I was good. It's very light weight and at first you think is this going to keep me warm? It sure did. It's water repellent. Once I got indoors, you could see the water trickle off. I would definitely recommend!
