Eddie Bauer Unveils A Modern, Technical Take On The World’s First Down Jacket

Oct 2, 2020

Category: Gear

Eddie Bauer began as a single brick and mortar location in Seatle, Washington, in 1920, though the small independent operation quickly blossomed into one of the Northwest’s most respected outdoor gear brands thanks to its uncompromising “Guide Built, Guide Tested” ethos. Of Eddie Bauer’s many early, envelope-pushing designs, was the world’s first-ever down jacket, originally introduced in 1936.

Dubbed the “Skyliner,” this rugged and ultra-warm jacket played a pivotal role in the early success of the company, with the U.S. Air Force even commissioning their own version of the jacket for its WW2 era pilots. And with 2020 marking Eddie Bauer’s 100th anniversary, the company has decided to revisit the game-changing garment, bestowing it with a host of modern materials and construction techniques to deliver the “Tech Skyliner.” Part of the company’s Centennial Collection, the limited edition jacket boasts a classic bomber-style silhouette of the original 1936 model, and a lightweight water-resistant shell stuffed with Responsible Down Certified high-loft 800 fill premium down. There’s also ribbed hem, cuffs, and collar, and an interior pocket for EDC storage. Available now, the Eddie Bauer Tech Skyliner Jacket is priced at $299.
