Eddie Bauer BC EverTherm Down Hooded Jacket

Eddie Bauer BC Duraweave Freshline Bib

The BC EverTherm Down Hooded Jacket’s goal: to be a do-it-all outerwear piece that provides the benefits of a lightweight shell and midlayer combination. It achieves this thanks to Thindown insulation. While many insulated pieces use loose down feathers sewn together in baffles or a similar stitching, Thindown are uniformly cut, thin sheets of down that are thermally adept, incredibly streamlined and won’t migrate. And, the lack of baffling helps to trap that heat and increases the garment’s durability, as there are no seams to pull out. The piece is designed as a midlayer/outer shell system, but still boasts a snugness smack dab in the middle of tight and loose for ultimate comfort. The BC Duraweave Freshline bib utilizes a rugged three-layer DuraWeave fabric reinforced with Cordura nylon in high-abrasion areas to stand up to frequent abuse. The stretchy bib features two pockets and is removable via zips.
