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. It reminds me of my fave denim jacket- but sort of in a winterized form.
The outside fabric is like a soft- worn in denim. It's called "Defender Twill" because it looks like a twill (denim-type) material , but is actually completely WATERPROOF and very BREATHABLE! It feels very soft, yet it's surprisingly abrasion resistant. 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.
Beautiful, realistic faux fur on the hood (removable) jazz it up, as do the metallic snaps on the collar, pockets, and cuffs. It has a great feminine shape without being tight.
On the inside- no area has been left untouched- and it has amazing attention to detail. There is a little more insulation in the back and chest (where you tend to get cold), and less insulation in the arms and under arms. There is even a very soft, wicking fleece in the collar- so the result is an incredibly comfortable jacket that’s warm without feeling stuffy. The removable hood and powder skirt add to the versatility.
It's ready for the ski slopes or the office.
