First Ascent Base layer $10 on 02/23/2011 12:20:56 MST Print View

My wife was just in the Eddie Bauer (Redmond) store and they have all FA base layers at $10!
I would assume that all the stores are blowing these out. If they don't have them marked down, you can tell them Redmond is selling them for $10 and they should match that price.

Online does not have this deal yet.

I just bought some midweight ones last week in lynnwood for $15 each... I love them.

From what my wife said, it was light and mid weight. I don't think it was the expedition weight but I wasn't there. I told her to buy one of everything in all our sizes, we'll she what she comes home with?

BTW, I got the expedition weight hoody last week also, but I think I paid $20 for it and the bottoms were $15. These look like they are made with the same polertec that my Patagonia is. Not bad for the price.

Anyone interested in doing me a favor? on 02/23/2011 17:41:12 MST Print View

I just called the only E.B. within 100 miles and they've long since sold out of everything for men. Is there a kind soul interested in purchasing mid and expedition weight XL tops and L bottoms and shipping them to me? Happy to see if I either have gear you're interested in trading for or paying you some for your time/effort.

Curtis, you can call a store and have them look up on the computer were (what store) your item might be and then you can call that store (or have them call it) and you can pay for shipping to have it delivered to your home.

The store I bought the expedition hoody didn't have one in my size, so we looked up who did and I bought it and paid for shipping and now have it at my house. The $4.95 shipping was nothing compared to what I saved.

Call around, they will be very helpful.

Matthew, sorry to hear most of the stuff was gone- my wife and another lady took sacks full of stuff home.
But I think if you are going by the store, drop in, some of the stuff taken might be coming back. My wife said the other lady was just grabbing stuff to take home to see who it might fit. The only thing going back from us is a 1/4 zip mid weight in Blue, unless you want it.

@Tad... what size midweight? I might be interested.

Just spent the last half hour on the phone trying to track down a bat hang hoody in Medium. No luck, but did manage to get a large. I also bought a medium expedition weight half zip. $25 including shipping... can't beat that. Thanks Tad for the phone tip.

If anyone bought a medium bat hang, and would rather have a large... let me know. I am fairly certain this won't fit right. If it doesn't fit I will be offering it up on gear swap.

Wow. Called all over the US and may have found the very last expedition weight base layers in the country! Great suggestion, Tad. It worked a charm and I ended up buying for all the family. Can't beat the $10, unless you were able to add in today's 30% off coupon!

I was amazed at how helpful the store employees were. Especially for Boston where customer service is a lost art.

Great Experience on 02/27/2011 18:05:23 MST Print View

Just wanted to reiterate that if your local EB is out of stock then have them check around the country. Just got back from the Portland, OR (Pioneer Place) location where they were out of stock. I was able to get a baselayer from Milwaukee, WI for $10 plus the shipping was waived! My girlfriend got one from Illinois and since they didn't waive the shipping the EB employee reimbursed her $4.95 in cash. I thought that was a pretty rare experience and wanted to share.

Thank you to everyone here I just got two shirts (crew and quarter zip) and pants all of them FA midweight baselayer for $36 shipped to my house from Michigan Ave Chicago location. FYI they have over 20 shirts still available and unknown number of pants still left.

Base layer on 03/01/2011 00:47:14 MST Print View

I got them for $7 during the sale but they got me for a pair of mountain guide pants for a $100. I am not sure who won that battle.
Darn you incredible deals.

Didn't think that there were any left but on a whim I searched and found there are a few stores that have them.
Call your local Eddie Bauer First Ascent store and they can search nationwide. Stock is really slim, but they are there. The San Francisco store has a bunch of Women's small: 415-343-0146.

I too was looking for Men's Small, and there were only three stores in the US who had them, and I think I may have gotten the last one. If you call any store they could help you find them anywhere in the US.

Try this one: Illinois: 309-691-2601.
