Rating: 4 / 5

I purchased an Eddie Bauer Down Sweater (their term) on sale this summer for $89.

It was reviewed by Will Riveted in his extensive articles of light down jackets and got a favorable, "middle-of-the-pack" rating. It had most of the features he liked and none he didn't like.

Personally I have found it to be an essential peice of gear for "shoulder season" backpacking. i.e. late spring and early fall in the western U.S. mountains.

That's because it is a neccessary garment in camp for cool evenings and crisp mornings and as a way to extend the temp range of my WM Megalite 30 F. down bag down to 20 F..

Combined with a GTX or eVent light rain parka, warm hat and gloves, it should keep you warm in all but the coldest weather.

Even at its very reasonable regular price it is a good deal. See Will's review.
