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!
