Eddie Bauer First Ascent 18K Jacket
Nice! Got this jacket last fall at a great sale price…
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $150
Got this jacket last fall at a great sale price and used it during the winter. A well apportioned soft shell. Sheds rain, is warm but not too, and has a suitably stretchy fabric. Nice array of pockets and features.
- Nice style and cut
- Pockets, zippers and attention to details
- Large adjustable hood
- A little heavy, but not unusually so for soft shells this warm
All in all a versatile jacket with nice features. Medium fit a bit slim (as advertised), but with thoughtful layering, works nicely. Still sheds rain and wind.
Hard to go wrong on this jacket. I've worn it in the field and around town.
I got it 40% off with free shipping... sweet!
