Eddie Bauer 90th Anniversary - Sat Oct. 16 on 10/14/2010 13:54:09 MDT Print View

Rumors are that Eddie Bauer will have a 30% off sale tomorrow marking their 90th anniversary.

With the one day only event and not having any luck finding the Downlight Sweater on their clearance site in my size I'm tempted to go buy the current year's model. At a proposed price of $118.30+tax ($169-30%) should I bite the bullet or hold out and get a Montbell Ex-Light? Any experiences with the vest or parka?

Someone wrote that they are still putting stock up early in the morning. I have seen more down sweaters a couple times over the last week-- at $40 and change.

I want one of those fleece hoodies they have-- gridded stuff like an R1.

Looks like they had a similar sale to celebrate in Feb. Are you sure they're having another?

ex vs. downlight on 10/14/2010 16:28:31 MDT Print View

oh ... as to the other part of the question

i guarantee youll get more use out of the downlight ... i have both and im afraid to wear the ex without a shell ... it feels that fragile

the EB ill wear anywhere ... around town, in the woods on its own, etc...

ex is great ... but its a specialized piece of gear that you need be careful with ...

I went to try one on this Monday to see what fit so I knew what size to order if I saw one on the clearance site. I'm between a M/L in Eddie Bauer sizing so I probably won't snag one at clearance pricing. The shop clerk told me that I should come back this weekend for their 90th anniversary sale for big discounts. Several mall websites show the event as a 30% off sale.

The store clerk also said I could return it if it ever started showing feather loss. Maybe he was just trying to make a sale, but that seems like a pretty good return policy.

Google "eddie bauer 30% october 16 2010" for results.

Eddie Bauer 90th Anniversary Sale on 10/17/2010 18:59:01 MDT Print View

I went to the nearby EB store today thinking the sale lasted through the weekend - turns out if was Saturday, 16th, only. Oh well...I'll wait til the next sale.

I curious if anyone has weighed the new style downlight sweater? The nylon shell changed from the earlier version and seems a bit heavier although the drop-in pockets (inside jacket) are gone now which is a shame but might offset a weight increase with the new fabric.

small blue one on 10/17/2010 21:32:34 MDT Print View

I've got a Blue one size small for sell that is new with tags. It is one of last years that I got a month ago but it doesn't fit me. I will ship it CONUS for $65 to break even.

The new down jackets are discounted down to the $120's this week for their down event.
