Sometimes 6'5" has its perks. :) Picked one up.

Great jacket on 11/25/2013 10:45:21 MST Print View

I found these ran a size large (I bought my X-LargeTall in 2010 and had to swap it for a LargeTall. I also swapped my Large EB DL vest for a Medium, I'm 6.0/#185 ). However Tall is not so bad, a little extra coverage never hurts.

Ryan - nice score - they look like great jackets and a great deal. At 5'10" and 185 a large tall would likely be too long in the sleeves (the length is not as much a concern for me really).

The non 50th version is also on sale and with the extra 30% isn't a bad deal - just not enough for me to pull the trigger as I already have a Brooks Range BR jacket.

nice jacket on 11/25/2013 23:24:54 MST Print View

I've tried one on and its a very nice jacket--warm for the weight. I had to talk myself out of it when I saw the deal. I still have occeassional flickers of will power.

received an EB downlight 800 fill jacket as a gift this weekend...

one of the baffles has absolutely not fill at all in the shoulder ...

went back to exchange it and some of the jackets in the store have underfilled baffles ...

looks like ill be doing a return ...

im usually a fan of EB ... but their quality control is slipping IMO ... a jacket should not reach the store to the customer with unfilled baffles ...

Didn't Patagonia's world-beater $700 jacket also have some fill issues too? Seems this is becoming more common.

Expiration of sale? on 11/29/2013 11:08:34 MST Print View

Anyone know when this was supposed to expire? They had no xxl in stock yesterday but now they have a "few" but the sale is gone? Seems a bit sketchy to me.

"Price is a typo?" according to EB on 11/29/2013 11:18:50 MST Print View

So, after trying to track down a way to get the jacket for 90 bucks I reached their customer service and was told, after the rep checked several other departments, that the 90$ price was a typo and "all orders placed at this price were or are being cancelled".

Anyone have any direct experience with this? Seems like a great deal at 90 for sure. I was able to get 40% off if I still want the jacket (may take them up on the offer, we'll see) but I'm more curious if anyone actually ordered and received one at the $90 price.

Thanks!

well that thread is somewhere on BPL ... we just wont talk about it here ;)

as an update, i inspected the jackets they had in the store and found a hooded downlight that seemed to have even fill in the baffles relatively speaking

moral of the story? ... inspect it before you buy ... you might find some with uneven or unfilled baffles ...

for you yankee folks at least they have free return shipping this xmas season ... and their warranty is second to none

Dang, totally missed out on this and i could have used an XXLT. It seems they don't even have the Downlight 50 on their site anymore.

Update: Got mine a few days ago. XL/Tall size. It runs a hair big on me in the torso, but not bad. Would be perfect to layer something underneath like a fleece. Very puffy with no under filled baffles. Build quality, seams, etc are good. Fabric has a nice feel. 11.5oz....Only thing I would like to see added would be a cinch in the bottom hem.

Overall, very pleased with this 900fp DWR-down jacket for $79.00!
