Eddie Bauer Sandstone Backbone Grid Hoodie
Buy Now From Eddie Bauer
The Eddie Bauer Sandstone Backbone Grid Hoodie is part of the brand’s First Ascent series, an expedition-focused lineup designed in close collaboration with mountain guides. For backcountry travelers and ski mountaineers, it provides a well-built and mobile solution to high-alpine layering that hugs tight against the body with an “active fit,” so to say. It’s comprised of 91 percent polyester with 9 percent elastane for excellent freedom of movement, a key detail for stretching out an arm for that next pole plant or reaching overhead to lock an ice tool in place. The name is derived from the gridded fleece that lines the jacket and retains heat while remaining super lightweight and breathable. The hooded design keeps the elements at bay when high wind or severe weather scenarios bear down on you. And when you’re wearing the Eddie Bauer Sandstone Backbone Grid Hoodie as a stand-alone, the outer fabric will effectively repel water and snow-soaking thanks to StormRepel DWR treatment.
