Let me start by saying I love Eddie Bauer, and I'm a completely loyal customer. Their quality and prices are outstanding, and I probably buy at least 2 pieces a year from them. I'm wearing an IgniteLite pullover as I write this, which I wear daily. I especially love their FirstAcent line, and most of the Eddie Bauer I buy comes from it. Let me also say that I understand if some of these complaints are personal--you should check out a review a few ones below mine that describes the exact opposite experience I had.I bought this jacket (sz sm; I'm 5ft 7in and 150 lbs) to replace a Mammut soft shell that I had been wearing over said IgniteLite pullover (sz med), under which I wore a mid layer shirt or two. I snowshoe, hike, and ski. I am returning this jacket for a few reasons:-I found that it's baggy fit coupled with it's thinness let too much of my body heat out. I don't want an insulated jacket, but I was hoping this would be a thicker soft shell.-The jacket went below my waistline, which was a bit awkward for me, and maybe a personal issue. I do feel like the jacket is cut especially wide at the waist.-To get sleeves in gloves, the wrist bands had to be velcroed to the point that (1) the sleeve itself was disproportionately roomy and (2) the cold air that penetrated the jacket got a bit trapped in the sleeve (relatedly, I wish it had thumbholes...)-Wind resistance wasn't as strong as I had hoped.-No armpit zippers to ventilate in warm winter conditionsEven though I went into this purchase thinking this would be a good winter layer with the system I described above, I got the feeling it was more of a fall layer.So, for sure, still love EB, and I'll always come here first. Perhaps these issues are personal; perhaps they're not, but this was my experience. Hope it helps.
