Shopped REI and Erehwon looking for a parka to replace an old Mountain Hardware model. Didn't consider Eddie Bauer until I spotted a friend wearing the Vinson. Bought both an XL and XXL online as size wasn't certain. The XL fit perfect (I'm 5'10" and 215 lbs). Very windproof, great hood, plenty warm, and pockets with perfect placement. Longer length keeps my butt warm, and draw string keeps air from blowing in. No problems with the feathers leaking as some have reported. Came with a removable neck gator I wasn't expecting. Only issue was deliver took a week, I expected it in 3 days. I'd buy this one again.
