Orange is not Poppy

By Jacob

from Outside the U.S. or Canada

Comments about First Ascent|Women|Jackets & Vests Women's MicroTherm® StormDown® Vest:

If you are after an orange vest for the woman in your life, this is for you. If you are after a poppy vest for her, then keep looking, this is not for you. I ordered this vest for my fiance as a Christmas gift. The excitement I had when it arrived quickly disappeared when I saw the color of the vest was bright orange instead of poppy. I feel really disappointed and mislead by Eddie Bauer. The pictures show it to be a light peach color. The color is not even remotely close to being poppy. There is no hint of peach, just this garish, unflattering orange. We live in New Zealand, so we are not looking forward to the costly shipping of the return, however, this simply is unacceptable. Eddie Bauer, please be more accurate in your advertising.

Not as expected

By Charlie

from Kentucky

Comments about First Ascent|Women|Jackets & Vests Women's MicroTherm® StormDown® Vest:

We purchased the vest as a gift before Christmas. The vest came sealed in a bag but was unfortunately full (at least 10 or more) of black stains. As a parent its hard watching the emotions of your child when they cannot enjoy their Christmas present that you worked hard to buy. We returned the item immediately. Over 15 days later our return was processed with a credit back on our account. After further investigation Eddie Bauer no longer had the vest in stock with our size and color. There was no communication on Eddie Bauer's part with us the customer. It took several 25 min plus telephone calls with customer service to figure this out and we are very disappointed. The quality of products and customer service is obviously lacking. We definitely will not be purchasing again.

    Comments about First Ascent|Women|Jackets & Vests Women's MicroTherm® StormDown® Vest:

    Ordered this on sale and have finally found the vest I've been searching for! I wanted a super lightweight, layerable vest that would truly keep me warm, with the extra cherry on top of having a flattering, fitted fit - I don't know why it's so hard to find women's clothes for outdoor pursuits that are actually cute. I got this in the oddly named "Dark Teal" print and am so far very happy with it. It is indeed so, so light, with quite large, non-quilted down panels on the sides. I am the kind of person who actually needs this for snowboarding, snowshoeing, hiking, and a layer I can pack up quickly for travels and cool fall backpacking... so those large panels to me mean ventilation and flexibility. I guess if you're just wanting to wear this to the mall or around your house, you might feel a bit cheated by the side panels or suspicious of how lightweight it feels. What can I say, I'm wearing it over base layers and under a puffy on the mountain, and I'm toasty and happy. Also kudos to Eddie Bauer for offering this in petite; something else extremely rare and difficult for women like me to find - for once I am not wearing a vest that is 4 inches too long. This lands just above my hip and zips right up to my chin. I'm a trim fit with healthy chest and the XS fits nice and snug.
