I bought an Evertherm hooded jacket when they were blowing them out in February for 60% off and had to contact customer service several times to get an issue resolved. Emailing them was useless and I had to call them twice to nag them and it still took several weeks to sort it out. It left a bad taste in my mouth but I have to admit that the jacket is fantastic.
Good to know, sitting here trying to figure if it's worth ordering the jacket again after the last attempt. Yours is the Evertherm Hoodie not the BC Jacket right? Can I ask, does the fit run smaller than normal (I saw some mentions) or can I stick with a medium?

Thanks,
Jay

It was $120 during the February sale - it was a smoking deal for that jacket.

Yes, mine is the Evertherm jacket with the hood - the really thin down one. I'd say it fits true to size or perhaps a little bit smaller than normal. If you want to wear it as as your only layer, your true size is probably the best bet. If you want to wear a mid-layer and use this as your top layer, size up one size.

I fall between S and M (wait, that didn't sound right . . .) and tried both on in a store. I intended to use it as my only layer and for me both sizes were OK, but the small was a better fit for me.

Are these clearance items returnable if they don’t fit?

Oh, I just noticed that there's an item labelled as "EverTherm Down Stretch Hoodie" but what I bought in February was the "EverTherm Down Hooded Jacket". It's a different item.

I forgot to mention that when I tried on the small and medium sizes in the store, the extremely hot sales clerk helping me out said I looked better in the small. That sealed the deal for me.

Eddie Bauer has declared bankruptcy several times in the last 10 years so it is unsurprising that their warranty has changed and is no longer as generous. The quality of their clothing is also lower than it used to be. At one time, over half of my wardrobe came from EB, now I just have one pair of shorts (which I am wearing now actually), one shirt and my winter parka. The shorts and parka are over 20 years old. I don't think any of their current items would be as long lasting.

Personally, I would not buy any EB clothing that I did not see in person and try on.

Well, to be fair... it would be very tough to build a sustainable business model by selling clothing that lasts 20+ years.

This sale is a pattern with Eddie Bauer. Every week it's either 40-50% off regular price or 40-60% off clearance price. I haven't seen them have a no sale week. This reveals how retailer's exaggerate their mark up price and use sale percentage to attract compulsive buyers. Their manufacturing cost is low and at the same time quality have been dropping.

What brands do you depend on now? I always loved EB for the tall sizes so would be great to find other brands that do that.

I'm sorry to disagree but Eddie Bauer has NOT declared bankruptcy once let alone several times in the last ten years. They were sold out of bankruptcy in 2009. There was a time a couple years ago where they were to be sold but that fell through.

It runs smaller for me.

And to be fair, all retailers are struggling.
EB still is one of the best clothing store around.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

Is this jacket suitable as a primary winter jacket in Calgary? Some reviews state it's not warm for low temperatures. Thanks in advance.

So I'm surprised they sprung that on you when you purchased the item on the promise of lifetime warranty and they promised to stand behind 110% on the products they sell. I hope they don't start playing the definition game of what constitutes lifetime warranty... Smiling Face With Horns I've always trusted them to honour their warranty and the quality of their products. I'm quite shocked to hear that you've been turned away with something as simple as a backpack.

I found (to my dismay) they also changed their product guarantee on their website and it's a lot more open-ended and open for interpretation to whatever they want rather than specifying a "lifetime warranty":
Yes, I believe they told me at the time that they had sent out some email notification and posted it on their website. Their regular priced stuff is really overpriced and follow suit with most major retailers these-days, crazy high prices with regular 40-50-60 percent off sales.

It depends on the outside temperature and your tolerance for cold, but you'd need another warmer jacket for those cold days we get sometimes. I can wear mine to down to about -10 but after that I switch to a parka. You could wear it in colder temps if you use something else as a mid-layer and this as the top layer. I will say that it is surprisingly warm considering how thin and light it is.
