I compared the Sun Valley Down Jacket with 4 other Eddie Bauer parkas and jackets, and this one came out the best overall. All have 650 fill power down, interior cuff gaiters/storm cuffs, hoods with faux-fur trim, and purchased autumn – winter 2019 unless noted otherwise. The Sun Valley keeps me warmer than the Yukon Classic 2.0 Down Jacket that I bought a few years ago and has been my go-to until getting the Sun Valley jacket. The Sun Valley Down Jacket (a shorter version of the Sun Valley Down Parka) has a harder finish than either the Lodge Down Parka or the Slope Side Down Parka, but not as hard as the Superior 3.0 Down Parka. I would not want to test either the Lodge Down or the Slope Side bushwacking or climbing over barbed wire fence, but do this daily with my Sun Valley Down Jacket. If you want a jacket to "grab and go" without being concerned about having to layer underneath or needing a scarf, this is it. The neck fastens up more snugly than on the Superior 3.0 Down Parka, and the finish is sufficiently hard to keep out cold and wind. In Colorado's semi-arid climate, this jacket has so far been great at keeping out wind and snow, and I haven't needed the higher wind and rain rating provided by the Women's Superior 3.0 Down Parka. To me, the Sun Valley Down Jacket seemed to keep out wind-driven cold air better than even the Women's Superior 3.0 Down Parka. However, the sleeves are narrower on this jacket than on any of the others I tested, so wearing a sweater underneath is not very comfortable. That said, the sleeves and shoulders of the jacket seem to do a superior job of keeping out the cold as compared to the parkas, when no sweaters are involved. If the material contents are important to you, the different colors are said to have different combinations of material (nylon, polyester, cotton), but the colors listed don't all match the actual colors available.

I love this jacket. It is keeping me warm even in bitterly cold weather and biting wind. It is not bulky and insulates exceptionally well. I like the cozy lining in the pockets and the inside of the jacket. The jacket arms (by your wrists) are made so that the cold wind cannot penetrate. Now when I go out on long walks with my dog, in the bitter cold, I am cozy as a cat by the fire. The only drawback is that the hood is way too big, and there is no way to adjust it. It falls over my eyes and face down to the tip of my nose so I cannot use it as I cannot see when I do.
