Lux fabric, flattering cut, soft lining

Perfect long down coat for someone who doesn't want the shiny, overly sporty look. Eider only uses the best fabrics and is known for having a high attention to detail on fit, fabric and finishes. This coat has a soft, lux fabric that feels soooo nice and even has a soft lining rather than the typical slick nylon taffeta lining.

Fit: True to size

EIDER was founded in 1962 in the Alps by a French tailor. That heritage is apparent here....This is such a well constructed performance ski jacket, you'll be faster just by putting it on! This 4 way stretch, Primaloft insulated jacket has a super sporty look, with serious technical features to back it up.

The fabric feels incredibly buttery and with that four way stretch and primaloft insulation- it's super light while being warm. You won't overheat though, thanks to the high (20k) breathability, large pit zips, and internal 'thermal control system'. It features Thermoceram down the back, which is a material that reflects body heat back into the areas that are prone to lose it. Eider body maps the insulation, so that it is lighter in the high heat areas...ensuring a warm, comfortable jacket that won't have you overheating as you race your friends to the bottom.

I also love how the fit is defined without being tight.

This is the Porsche of ski jackets

These are a great basic ski pant, if you're looking for high quality fabric and construction for a reasonable price. These aren't going to have all the bells and whistles of other higher end pants out there...but they do have all the basic features you need.

I also love the fit of these pants. They have a feminine cut, so hug your curves, but without being tight!

These pants offer:
-10k/10k waterproof/breathable fabric that is seam sealed and DWR treated. Will keep you warm and dry.
-Preshaped knees for an articulated fit
-Stretch, non-slip gators for over your boot
-Cormax in the waist (soft fleece that is WICKING- in case you get either sweaty or let some snow down your back. This will help keep you dry and comfortable)
-Higher waist in the back to help keep your low back warm and dry!
-Zippered handwarmer pockets

There is no venting, but the breathability of the fabric will keep you comfortable.

This pant is so cute on, and so comfortable to wear- and you just can't beat the price for the quality of fabric, fit and comfort!

Fit: Runs small

I love the EIDER Montmin down jacket, because the cut and fit are feminine and flattering. Eider was founded in the 1960's in France by a tailor.....and that heritage is really apparent on this jacket. The seaming detail, and paneled construction give the jacket a very nice fit.

It is so NOT the square front, square back, with a cylendar sleeve sewn on like so many down jackets out there. This 550 fill down jacket is not overstuffed, but is still very warm. The soft outer fabric feels like a brushed twill, with almost a peach fuzz feel. It's DEFENDER (Eider's membrane) so it is waterproof and breathable. The fabric also makes it a lot more abrasion resistant than a nylon down jacket.

Since it is a tailored cut, some women may find they want to go up a size....just to account for wearing heavier sweaters/fleeces underneath. If that's not your style, and you want to wear lighter sweaters, shirts underneath than I recommend buying true to size.

This is the perfect jacket for around town, to the office, apre ski...you name it!

Your favorite denim jkt in Winter form!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 128 lbs

The Eider Manhattan jacket is so cute, versatile and comfortable- you're sure to love it equally on the slopes as you do around town.

My favorite aspect of this jacket is the outer fabric. It's called "Defender Twill" because it looks like a twill (denim-type) material , but is actually completely WATERPROOF and very BREATHABLE! Of course it's fully seam sealed and DWR treated as well- so it performs like a technical ski jacket should. It is so soft and supple, yet I've skied trees, snagged shopping carts- you name it- and the material has never ripped. It is deceptively tough for how soft it feels.

Since I wanted this for my work/everyday jacket, I loved the details on the outside... Beautiful, realistic faux fur on the hood (removable) jazz it up, as do the leather snaps on the collar, pockets, and cuffs. It has a great feminine shape- with interesting detailing & seaming front and back.

On the inside- no area has been left untouched- and it has amazing attention to detail. Eider uses a “Thermal Control System” which puts Thermoceram down the back and around the lower torso. That material reflects heat from the body back into the jacket- in the areas where you tend to lose heat the most. Then in the arms and other high heat/moisture areas there is a lighter insulation so you don’t get to hot. The result is an incredibly comfortable jacket that’s warm without feeling stuffy once you’re moving. The removable hood and powder skirt add to the versatility of the jacket.

This one is a real winner!

The Eider Shibuya Down is the perfect everyday, classy, around town piece that just so happens to be a technical ski jacket! I love how the jacket’s outer Defender Weave material looks and feels more like street wear, but is actually completely waterproof and breathable.

It has a feminine cut and fit, without being tight.
I love how it is slightly longer in the back, so that I have extra protection on the chairlift- but also it keeps my buns warm around town.

Though the outside is totally chic and street wear approved, INSIDE you will find all the features you'd expect in a ski jacket:

-Zippered phone pocket

-Removable powder skirt

-Oversized goggle/glove pocket with removable goggle wipe

-Lycra thumb loops
The hood is trimmed with gorgeous fur, but both the fur itself and the hood overall are removable....so it really adds to the versatility.

All around, this is a beautiful jacket that is built to last for years

I love wearing mine over leggings or skinny jeans. It's the perfect Fall/early winter piece as it keeps you warmer than a regular sweater since it's a bit longer and fleece lined. I don't use the hood much personally, but it doesn't bother me when it's back (not bulky)

Cool, modern look with rich fabrics
5 5

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 128 lbs

Of course it has all the ski features you could ever want...but what makes it special is the super unique fabric and modern color blocking. It looks cool around town as much as on the ski hill.

The removable hood, easily adjustable pit zips, stretchy snow skirt, ample pockets and high collar all make it a top performer on the slopes. The heathering of fabric, bi-color zips, super feminine shape all give it the street style that makes it pop.

Pairs perfectly with the EIDER Aoraki pant in "raw" or "raven" if you want the full kit!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have really sensitive skin so I seek out sunscreens that won't irritate my skin or go on greasy. This one is great! I like that it's soothing if you're already a bit sun kissed.

I love that it is all natural- no harsh chemicals- and has oat protein, hydresia, and other plant based nutrients. It goes on easily with no greasy residue and blends in really well. I've found a little goes a long way too, so one tube of this has lasted me awhile which I appreciate for the price

Warm, lovely, hand knit...
5 5

Fit: True to size

This hand-made, Fair Trade sweater is truly special.
First- I LOVE the length. In the winter I pretty much live in leggings, tights, and skinny cords. On me (5'4") the length comes just below the seat of my pants which really helps keep me warm on those chilly winter days. It looks super cute over denim and leggings alike

Second- I love that it's lined with a super soft cotton jersey. I'm sensitive to wool next to skin (itchy!) so this is fully lines-even the hood and pockets. A really nice touch.

Third-It's hand knit in Nepal and the intricate bead knit is flawless. You can feel good about wearing this sweater as you know someone was paid a fair wage to carefully knit this beautiful piece for you!

Perfect Fall/Winter Sweater Coat
5 5

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 128 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

This hand knit, Fair Trade sweater coat is the coziest of cozy. And on top of that- it's cute!

Perfect length over skinny jeans or leggings as it comes to just below the booty...so it is a flattering length that will keep your buns warm!

As a bonus--Laundromat sweaters employs women in Nepal through the Fair Trade Federation to give them steady work and fair pay. On average it takes a knitter 3 days to make each sweater so these are a carefully crafted, hand made original!

Essential for vacay with the bebe
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this on our trip to Cali last week. It was awesome! We were out in the sun daily with our 4 month old(Including 6 hours on a sailboat one day) and she did not get burned or pink at all.

I love the feel of the sun lotion- very soft and gentle but non greasy. Rubs in very easily for good even coverage.
Tear free so it won't hurt her eyes if she rubs some in there.

All and all very impressed with this!

I have one of these stashed in my camelback pack, pool bag and car. It is awesome because you can hold it upside down behind you and get your own back!

I love the cooling sensation and subtle cucumber scent as well.

I've been pretty impressed with the water and sweat resistance...you just have to give it a couple minutes to dry on your skin before jumping in the water.

As a bonus it's air powered so there are no CFC's that impact the ozone
