Sold - Eddie Bauer Expedition Down Filled Parka - Medium

Postby normankirk » Thu Nov 17, 2016 6:42 pm

Eddie Bauer Expedition Parka - Size Medium - $295.00.

To the best of my current knowledge, this rendering of the Eddie Bauer goose down filled expedition parka was manufactured in the early 1970's approximately 16 years before the company was purchased by Spiegel and the tagline "Expedition Outfitter" came to an end.

Although not off the shelf mint, it is in rare, overall exceptionally nice used condition. Application is similar to The North Face Himalayan and the Marmot 8000 Meter parka i.e., designed for use in the deep cold. The color is burnt orange in a men's medium. Made in Seattle, the parka is not a relic for display in a store front window or gear museum. It is fully functional and as ready for cold weather use as the day it was sewn together and filled with goose down.

Features:

- Goose down insulation.

- 1.9 ounce rip stop nylon outer shell and inner lining.

- Double off-set quilt construction. Stitch lines that you see on the outside are backed by a separate down filled chamber.

- Heavy duty #10 YKK double toggle plastic tooth zipper with an external snap closure draft tube.

- Attached hood with no sewn through seams.

- Parka length covers the buttocks.

- Waist and hem draw cords.

- Inside zippered chest pocket. 2 large Velcro closure cargo pockets backed with hand pockets.

- Super lofty, packed with goose down evenly distributed.

- Knit inner cuffs.

Condition:

Cons-

2 pin head size holes that were covered with tape. I removed the tape and its residue and repaired with Tenacious Tape.

Few faint stains and smudges here and there. Some faint spots that look like a tent mate tried to choke off laughing while drinking cocoa.

Pro's-

Overall the parka is clean with no grime on the collar, chin or cuffs. There are no tears or obvious spots of wear, even on the cuffs. The few scuffs are superficial and the fabric is not fraying. All stitching is intact and the zipper operates smoothly. The parka's history is unknown to me however by appearance alone, it has been lightly used and well cared for.

Was $325.00, now $295.00 shipped. F and F paypal or please add 4%.

Purchase includes a First Ascent Eddie Bauer Expedition Highlights CD -
