MicroTherm™ Down

MicroTherm is First Ascent's lightest, warmest down construction, which pairs Premium European Goose Down fill with some of the narrowest channel baffling in the outdoor industry. The narrow-channel construction prevents down migration and keeps the fill more evenly distributed throughout the garment—minimizing the cold spots and filling voids that could allow body heat to escape. This elevates the overall thermal value of MicroTherm to an extremely high degree, meaning more warmth for the same weight, reducing overall bulk and allowing for easier layering as well as greater packability. We like to emphasize it's the warmest, lightest down we've ever made.


Our durable water-repellent (DWR) finish causes moisture to bead up on the surface so it rolls off or evaporates rather than soaking into the fabric.


Our products are built to last. If your Eddie Bauer product fails to perform as designed, bring it back and we will replace it.

Nice fitting jacket


It looks nice on my husband! It even hide the beer belly that he is self conscious about..however, the fabric under the armpit starts to have lint balls where it touches the bag pack.



Great Coat


Tremendous value. Love this coat.




Gread jacket


Nicely made, very lightweight yet well insulating jacket. Excellent value at half off plus coupons!




First Ascent Athletic Fit!


I'm very happy to see Eddie Bauer finally start to make more of an "athletic fit" style of clothing, especially in their First Ascent Line. Being 6' 185lbs, athletic build and a 31 inch waist, most "standard fits" tend to be boxy, narrow in the chest and shoulders, and just in general an fit awkward most of the time. The L in this jacket fits me just about perfect! I wish it could be slightly on the warmer side (is just a tad cold with only a base layer underneath, shell over it, and walking around in zero to sub-zero temps), but again that's not the intended purpose of the microtherm line. However, for moderate winter weather activity in normal to cooler conditions, it moves great and keeps you just about at the right temp. Keep up the good work Eddie Bauer and PLEASE continue to keep making this athletic fit more available in your First Ascent line!!Of note, the only reason I gave 4 stars out of five (which really should be more like 4.5 out of 5 stars) is that like my last microtherm jacket, they do tend to leak little feathers. Not terribly, but noticeable. Also, compared to the likes Arc'teryx, Norrona, and Mammut (just as examples), the overall quality does seem to be a very very slight step down. But again, I'm really being picky here, and this should in no way deter anyone from purchasing this product. Just my honest observation is all.
