This year marks the 75th anniversary of the introduction of the original 1936 Skyliner Model Jacket, the cornerstone of the Eddie Bauer outerwear legacy. To commemorate the occasion, Eddie Bauer has re-launched the 1936 Skyliner Model design in updated fabric choices for men and women.
The new Fall 2011 down offering, which is one of the largest in the company’s history features the new MicroTherm™ family, which includes the MicroTherm Down Shirt, the Bombshelter Jacket and the newest evolution of expedition down apparel, the BC MicroTherm Jacket. Made from ultra-lighweight 800 fill goose down, paired with a waterproof/breathable outer shell, the 19.9oz BC MicroTherm is possibly the lightest waterproof down jacket on earth.
