Eddie Bauer was not on my radar screen to find lightweight performance outdoor clothing. That changed with the introduction of their First Ascent line, in concert with a successful Everest expedition in May 2009. Their experienced climbing team provided a lot of input into the garments' design, which is evident in the Downlight Sweater. This jacket has an excellent balance of light weight and essential features, it's very warm, and it's a great value.
