Introducing...the Not Available in USA
Eddie Bauer EB900 Down Beanie
This is a Japan Exclusive...to commemorate the Tokyo EB Store's 15th Anniversary.

Thanx to BPL member Rick I got 2 of these, intending to make one available here to recoup associated costs.

The beanie has a lower profile and more snug fit than the BRG, and that's what I had hoped, since this is an around-town item for me.

Beanie is Black, size Large, weight is 37 grams.
Pertex Quantum fabric.

Nice hi res pics here: http://tinyurl.com/lvaa7cp
by zooming on the image u can see "Shinjuku 15th Anniv" on the inside microfleece hat band.

This is a UNIQUE Item. I can find no mention of it by googling, in english anyway.

Only ONE available.

$69 shipped usa

To be sure these are sized usa style...this is an L/XL and it fits me, and i am an L/xl for sure.
This is Not japanese sizing.
Also the hatband is elasticized so there is decent stretch.
Rick reminds me that there is an inner layer of reflectix so this thing is Extra warm.
An advantage over the BRG even.

Per the website, the large fits 60 to 62 cm, which is pretty big.

I wear a hat size 7 1/2 and can slip 2 finger tips between my brow and the stretched EB FP900 L/XL beanie. Basically a perfect fit.

The inside IR reflecting material is similar to Columbia Omni Heat technology with small reflective dots.
