This is a vintage 80's Eddie Bauer Puffer Jacket. When it comes to the history of the down puffer jacket it all begun back in 1936, when Eddie Bauer introduced the Skyliner jacket. The jacket was made of down feathers within quilted fabric and was an invention that mr Bauer came up with after nearly losing his life to hypothermia during a mid winter fishing trip. Ever since, the down puffer jacket has proven to be the best protection against extreme cold weather. The combination of a light weight jacket, a durable windproof shell fabric and the insulation quality of down makes the jacket superb as protective outerwear in cold climates. Up to this day the down puffer jacket has remained the best option for a lightweight jacket to be worn in extremely cold climates.
Eddie Bauer became well known for producing functional outdoor clothing and this jacket is a good example of it. We estimate it to be from the 80's / 90's and it is a perfect jacket to wear as a warming layer, you can best describe it as a down jumper. it is a smart design where the jacket can be tucked in to the pocket, which turns it into a small pillow that is easy to carry. The straps can be used to tie it to a carrying strap or to tie it to ones backpack.
The vest is second hand but in great condition.
