Minus 50 F on 12/29/2010 09:57:25 MST Print View

One of the reviewers states he used the jacket down to minus 50 F. Any takers to test that out???

How EB's Clearance works... on 12/29/2010 13:16:06 MST Print View

Basically, every so often someone updates the stock, the items appear on the Clearance page, and don't get removed until someone manually does so. So you could very well see the item because it was there today, yesterday, last week, who knows? You have to actually click on the item to see if there is one still available for sale.

Then you just sit there and keep reloading until your size appears.

It's a pain but the prices are pretty darn good.

go the the nearest EB retail store and if they have your size, ask the mgr to sell you one for the clearance price. If you can't get on there, call the EB store in Burlington VT. They'll probably do it and mail it too. They have last yrs model in black and lava(nice orange!). This model doesn't have the reinforcement on the sleeves and no big bottle pocket inside. Worth a try if you really want one.

patrick- I just take a look every morning. Actually, wrote a script that checks every morning for me and sends me a list of what's there, with the exception of the things I've put on an ignore list. I've got something similar setup for GearTrade, watching for anything in my size by certain companies. :)

So what is the clearance page link?

The more i think about it the XV is prob way more jacket than i will ever need. I mean last time i was atop a peak in New England it was -15-20% with the wind chill. I was more than fine in my 10 gram Montane North Star. I actually only pulled it on behind a snow covered bolder steps before i stepped onto the open summit ridge and well after the tree line. Before that i was in a Cap 1 and a Rab Alpine Pull On no hat no gloves all the way from the lot. I suppose if i wanted to camp above tree line or when it was 20% below i might need the XV? Who knows maybe i would want it even to camp if it was 5-10% but i doubt it?

peak on 12/29/2010 17:16:00 MST Print View

i was thinking of getting one or a mec reflex ..

then i thought to myself ...

will i be doing a 6000m peak next year? ... will i be going to the antartica ... will i be saving polar bears in the arctic? ... will i be in yellowstone in the dead of winter?

if you answer no to the above ... you dont NEED one

whether you want one or not ... well thats up to you ;)

patrick - go to See "CLEARANCE" in the nav bar at the top? Click it. :)

Here's a direct link:

Men's Outerwear Clearance

I've had the exact thoughts about a jacket like this. Even sitting outside, ice fishing in northern Minnesota with -40 F windchills I don't think I'd need it. But want? Sure!

That's what it says when they run out. There might be more tomorrow, or in another color or size. Our, out might be gone altogether!

eddie bauer change of policy on 01/05/2011 08:32:17 MST Print View

I just talked to Eddie Bauer and they have changed there policies at their warehouse stores w/ regard to matching online prices with FA product from in-store.

During the First Ascent madness with the Downlite Jackets last year you could call a warehouse store, find the jacket (that the warehouse had listed at a different price and thus had in stock) and get that jacket for the price listed on the online clearance (i.e WAY less). Now, they are limited to 50% off on all FA items. FYI

Hopefully save someone a chase on last years workaround deals.

It looks like another round of clearance is starting? Peak XV, guide pants, rainier pants, PL1 jacket so far.

Just so people are clear, you can find all the clearance items on the EB website, not the first ascent site. Go to clearance, click mens, click outerwear. Looks like both colors and all sizes are in stock

While I've never pushed the limits of my peak xv, I have enjoyed it in 0 degrees. Best value parka in the 2lb range.

Look around for coupons online...there might be additional discounts. I grabbed mine for 150 shipped around Jan a couple years ago

Random follow up on what Brandon said in January... Not sure what the deal is, but my local (non-warehouse) store said they'd be willing to match price on clearance FA stuff. They've had the Mountain Guide jacket on sale on the website for $69, and for $129 or so at my local store. They said they'd do a price match as long as I came in armed with a print off showing the price on the clearance site.
