Light As A Feather: Eddie Bauer First Ascent Downlight Sweater


The first thing you’ll notice about this winter featherweight is that’s no  scratchy wool cardigan like your granny would wear. Not this sweater.

Eddie Bauer’s new First Ascent Downlight® Sweater is cozy to the core, indoors or out. As autumn turns to winter in the mountains of southern New Mexico, I wear it on the trails, enjoying an early morning cuppa on the deck, or seated at my computer. Made from water-repellent, ripstop fabric and 800 fill northern European goose down, it’s ultra light, ultra warm, ultra cozy and better still, designed to fit my curves.

Favorite Feature: I love the buttery feel of the felt-lined front pockets. And the nicely concealed interior pocket is sized just right for walking around money and ID.

Not-so-favorite Feature: Mine sheds little white goose feathers. I quit wearing it with black shirts or sweaters. Boo Hoo.

Bottom Line: Weighs nothing; packs into its own pocket; machine washable; roomy enough to layer underneath; great fit. I’m a fan!

Available in men’s and women’s sizing at as well as the Adventure Traveler section of the Travel Store at powered by Amazon.
