I've been trying to get a pair of the Igniter pants in M for months now…Dec 29, 2010 at 8:57 am #1678651
One of the reviewers states he used the jacket down to minus 50 F. Any takers to test that out???Dec 29, 2010 at 10:26 am #1678684
i wouldn't see why not. if you had the matching pants for it… there's so much down in that thingDec 29, 2010 at 12:00 pm #1678716
Crappah i been waiting for a wicked deal on that for a month now. Where did you find the link? I check everyday to see what is going on with EB?Dec 29, 2010 at 12:16 pm #1678725
Basically, every so often someone updates the stock, the items appear on the Clearance page, and don't get removed until someone manually does so. So you could very well see the item because it was there today, yesterday, last week, who knows? You have to actually click on the item to see if there is one still available for sale.
Then you just sit there and keep reloading until your size appears.
It's a pain but the prices are pretty darn good.Dec 29, 2010 at 1:14 pm #1678740
go the the nearest EB retail store and if they have your size, ask the mgr to sell you one for the clearance price. If you can't get on there, call the EB store in Burlington VT. They'll probably do it and mail it too. They have last yrs model in black and lava(nice orange!). This model doesn't have the reinforcement on the sleeves and no big bottle pocket inside. Worth a try if you really want one.Dec 29, 2010 at 1:40 pm #1678744
patrick- I just take a look every morning. Actually, wrote a script that checks every morning for me and sends me a list of what's there, with the exception of the things I've put on an ignore list. I've got something similar setup for GearTrade, watching for anything in my size by certain companies. :)Dec 29, 2010 at 2:03 pm #1678751
So what is the clearance page link?
The more i think about it the XV is prob way more jacket than i will ever need. I mean last time i was atop a peak in New England it was -15-20% with the wind chill. I was more than fine in my 10 gram Montane North Star. I actually only pulled it on behind a snow covered bolder steps before i stepped onto the open summit ridge and well after the tree line. Before that i was in a Cap 1 and a Rab Alpine Pull On no hat no gloves all the way from the lot. I suppose if i wanted to camp above tree line or when it was 20% below i might need the XV? Who knows maybe i would want it even to camp if it was 5-10% but i doubt it?Dec 29, 2010 at 4:16 pm #1678794
i was thinking of getting one or a mec reflex ..
then i thought to myself …
will i be doing a 6000m peak next year? … will i be going to the antartica … will i be saving polar bears in the arctic? … will i be in yellowstone in the dead of winter?
if you answer no to the above … you dont NEED one
whether you want one or not … well thats up to you ;)Dec 30, 2010 at 7:42 am #1678937
that's funny eric. i had the same conversation with myselfDec 30, 2010 at 8:31 am #1678949
patrick – go to eddiebauer.com. See "CLEARANCE" in the nav bar at the top? Click it. :)
Here's a direct link:
I've had the exact thoughts about a jacket like this. Even sitting outside, ice fishing in northern Minnesota with -40 F windchills I don't think I'd need it. But want? Sure!Dec 30, 2010 at 10:05 am #1678967
"We're sorry, this product is no longer available."Dec 30, 2010 at 10:29 am #1678972
That's what it says when they run out. There might be more tomorrow, or in another color or size. Our, out might be gone altogether!Jan 5, 2011 at 7:32 am #1680683

I just talked to Eddie Bauer and they have changed there policies at their warehouse stores w/ regard to matching online prices with FA product from in-store.
During the First Ascent madness with the Downlite Jackets last year you could call a warehouse store, find the jacket (that the warehouse had listed at a different price and thus had in stock) and get that jacket for the price listed on the online clearance (i.e WAY less). Now, they are limited to 50% off on all FA items. FYI
Hopefully save someone a chase on last years workaround deals.

It looks like another round of clearance is starting? Peak XV, guide pants, rainier pants, PL1 jacket so far.Apr 6, 2011 at 11:12 am #1720961
Just so people are clear, you can find all the clearance items on the EB website, not the first ascent site. Go to clearance, click mens, click outerwear. Looks like both colors and all sizes are in stock
While I've never pushed the limits of my peak xv, I have enjoyed it in 0 degrees. Best value parka in the 2lb range.
Look around for coupons online…there might be additional discounts. I grabbed mine for 150 shipped around Jan a couple years agoApr 6, 2011 at 11:36 am #1720974
code should get you free shipping on $99+ purchasesApr 6, 2011 at 1:52 pm #1721045
Random follow up on what Brandon said in January… Not sure what the deal is, but my local (non-warehouse) store said they'd be willing to match price on clearance FA stuff. They've had the Mountain Guide jacket on sale on the website for $69, and for $129 or so at my local store. They said they'd do a price match as long as I came in armed with a print off showing the price on the clearance site.
