STORMDOWN™ POWERED BY DOWNTEK™

Keeps Down Dry In Wet Weather

Down is nature's best insulator, but until now dampness rendered it ineffective. Our StormDown™, powered by DownTek™, treats each down cluster with a durable water-repellent (DWR) finish to prevent internal moisture accumulation and preserve down's structural integrity, lightweight warmth, and exceptional breathability.

Ed Viesturs

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

— Ed Viesturs

          Both my husband and I have several of these jackets and use them for cold weather hiking And love them. They are so warm and light weight. Pack nicely in our backpacks. Not to mention all the compliments we receive from fellow hikiers. The women's I find is small through the bust so I ordered a size up. But love them any way!

          Love this coat!!!

                The ONLY reason I did not give this coat 5 stars is because of the fit. I have noticed that most of the outerwear Eddie Bauer makes runs really small in the armpits. Yes, I know that sounds really strange. I am not a muscular guy by any stretch but I cannot wear any of their size large coats. My wife actually has the same exact problem. I am 6 ft. tall, 190-195 lbs. and all of the jackets are incredibly tight under the arms. That's annoying on long hikes, skiing, touring, etc. The coat is a perfect fit but the arm holes are just too small. It is actually pretty frustrating as I've had to go up to the XL which is not a good fit around my midsection. It looks pretty big on me. Please make the arm holes bigger Eddie Bauer. My wife & I love your coats!

                Beyond our armhole issues, this jacket is amazing. I have taken it to Argentina, Istanbul, and many other places and it has never failed me. I love the way this thing breaths. It is a good outer layer or inner layer. In other words, this is a very versatile coat and it packs into virtually nothing. I jammed this thing into a small camera bag compartment, pulled it out after several hours and it still looked amazing! It spits some feathers out every now and again but that isn't a bother to me. The weight of this thing is awesome! Love the lightweight for traveling, packing, hiking, camping, walking around town, etc. Love the fact that it is so thin. So many down coats like this make people look like the Michelin Man. Not this coat. Again, this is just a great coat overall. If the armhole thing was fixed it would easily be a five out of five.

                I also bought this coat on sale. I would recommend waiting for it to go on sale if you get it. If you do, it is an incredible coat for an incredible price. I actually plan on getting another during the next sale just to get a different color.

                      Last year I had bought the MicroTherm Vest as a gift for my brother. He wore it almost everyday during the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons. So this year I bought him this jacket as another layering piece. It was a long cold winter in Maine (still cold with a foot or two of snow still) He loves his new jacket. He wears it for outdoor activities like snowshoeing and walking. And everyday wear. (I now have 5 of the First Ascent jackets myself. Love these lightweight and warm jackets)
