Warm and flexible for the active lady
5 5

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
Fit: True to size

I got this jacket as a present for my mom, because she was looking for a down insulator that had some flexibility and freedom of movement.

She loves it! She needed it for riding her horses in competitive trail races where it gets cold- but she's working up a sweat and needs some flexibility of fabric in her shoulders to comfortably handle the horse and equipment.

After her first ride with it she called and told me it was the greatest piece she'd ever had for rides, since it was lightweight, warm, and again had great flexibility (Since the down is in the front and back body panels but its a stretch fleece in the arms, underarms and shoulders)

Plus it looks super cute on her!

Love this super puff

Fit: True to size

I got this jacket last year and love it. I needed something warmer than my down sweater for belaying, camping, dog walking and just around town in the cold when I don't want to wear my ski coat.

What caught my eye on this jacket was the style...it doesn't look like just another super puffy, michelin man style jacket. It has cool baffling (seaming of the down) so that it's flattering and also a bit retro looking.

I also liked the rich color and loved the fact that it has a hood (a must for me- my ears are always freezing!)

It's from Eider's expedition series so it's a 700 fill down for solid warmth. The outer fabric is a Pertex Nylon, which makes it more abrasion resistant and packable than typical nylon puffies and also Pertex is windproof by construction.

I get a ton of compliments on it at the crag because it's just plain cuter than most super puffies out there(I found they all looked the same...shiny, overly stuffed, etc.)

The chest pocket also gives it a little pop of style.

I'm excited for the temps to drop this weekend to break it out again!

My husband got these skis for me for Xmas last year...I know this sounds dramatic, but they SERIOUSLY made me a better skier.

What I noticed most at first was how light and "playful", if you will, the skis feel. I'm a moderate skier (Blacks sure, but nothing too steep or gnarly)-so I was really looking for something that would be responsive on bumps or choppy conditions, but would also be great on powder days. For me, this is that ski.

They handle so well and have really helped me improve on my turns on steeps as they have a sort of spring sensation with the camber.

Super fun ski- I highly recommend it!

I got this fleece last season because I loved the color, and know that Polartec fleece simply lasts longer than cheaper ones...
I was thrilled when I zipped it up and realized it looks like a tailored, stylish lifestyle piece- and not a fleece hoody! Because of this it does double duty in my wardrobe. It is perfect for skiing(what I intended it for) as it works well with other layers. I like to wear the hood under my helmet since it's warm but super breathable and since it isn't bulky it works well under the helmet.

It's made from Polartec Power Stretch fleece, which has the best ratio of warmth to lightness....meaning the fleece is structured to be soft and warm, but also lightweight. And it's NOT Boxy or bulky.

I've found, though, that I'm wearing it a ton off the slopes as well, because the heathered fabric gives it a more elegant look. I've paired it with jeans and boots and worn it to work, out to dinner, etc.

I love how stretchy it is too!

I've been really impressed with how it washes and looks brand new again...all and all I'm loving this piece and will likely buy another in a different color!

I love this 1/2 zip fleece because it's warm without being bulky, and it has a feminine (NOT BOXY) cut.
It's made from Polartec Power Stretch fleece, which has the best ratio of warmth to lightness....meaning the fleece is structured to be soft and warm, but also lightweight. What that really boils down to is it acts as a perfect layering piece for skiing, winter running, or even just around town. And it won't be bulky under other layers.
The fabric has a subtle heathered look, so it is more elegant than a normal flat colored fleece.

It's cozy, flattering and super stretchy...what more could you ask for?

The EIDER Courmayeur is a truly high performance ski pant with all the bells and whistles you'd expect.

You'll recognize right away why EIDER is known for high fabric quality and construction. These pants are four way stretch, super breathable, waterproof and sport an awesome fit. They are a "Regular Fit", which means they have the classic ski pant fit. Not tight, but certainly not the super baggy "bro" look either.

They are well tailored and offer both a side waist adjustment, as well as adjustable (and removable) suspenders. So you can get the perfect fit and then let the 4 way stretch performance lead you down the mountain in comfort..

If you really want to be the classiest guy on the slopes, pair these pants with the EIDER Sapporo jacket. Also a 4 way stretch, insulated performance garment.

You'll be comfortable, warm and looking sharp!

This is sure to be your new favorite jacket.

The outer fabric is a burly stretch material, that's as technical as it is badass looking.

Eider body maps the PRIMALOFT insulation- to match how your body needs and expels heat....meaning there is more insulation in your back and front (torso) and lighter insulation in the under arms and sleeves- where you tend to crank out heat anyway. If you're really working it- you can always open up the under arm vents as well.

The fit is relaxed, without looking boxy.

With the chest pocket, arm pockets, hand warmer pockets, and inside pocket...you'll have no problem stashing the goods and maybe even lunch!

Oh, and if you want the full awesomeness of the EIDER kit- pair this with the Courmayeur pant. 4 way stretch...same awesome fabric- you'll be set to impress

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...plus a few bonus items!

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.
-Adjustable Waist for the perfect fit
-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!

EIDER was founded by a tailor in the 1960's and 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 after 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

The EIDER Blow Alpha jacket utilizes the unique, new POLARTEC Alpha insulation....the only insulation that actually BREATHS. Alpha insulation allows for active air exchange (or air permeability) which acts almost like a fan...pumping out the hot, moist air coming off your body when you're active.
This is the perfect insulator for skinning, XC skiing, snowshoeing, biking,hiking....really anytime you need some warmth but Demand breathability.

Polartec alpha is a knit insulation so it retains warmth when wet and doesn't have any quills to poke through the fabric like traditional down. It's also the most compressible insulation.
Eider uses Pertex nylon so the jacket is wind proof by construction as well.

This is the ultimate insulator for an active person sick of putting on and taking off their layers all day

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!

This is a popular Eider ski pant for good reason. The fit of these pants is awesome- with a higher back to keep you warm on the chairlift- but also keeping a more relaxed free-ski look...but it's not baggy! The Defender twill feeling fabric looks like street wear (really unique weave) but it is actually completely waterproof and breathable and it STRETCHES!

The pant has a very flattering cut, particularly with the yoke in the back. Slimming and modern- definitely not a frumpy ski pant! And of course it sports your features like the zipped hand warmer pockets, cute back pocket,stretch gators, etc.

It also has a a soft moisture wicking fleece in the waist to keep you dry and comfortable.

Both myself and a friend have this pant (very different bodies and sizes) and it looks great on us both!

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 get compliments on this Eider jacket EVERY time I wear it! The Defender fabric makes this a wonderful waterproof, breathable, and wind resistant piece…but the weave of the fabric is much more sophisticated looking and crosses over to street wear effortlessly.

I love the tailoring and attention to details. It has cute brushed silver buckles on the side, snaps and zipper which give it an urban look. The length is great, landing at about mid to low thigh and it fits like a dream. I love how warm it is without being overstuffed, as it's a synthetic insulation instead of down...same warmth but less bulky.

The hood is removable, which leaves a high collar.

Eider’s long insulated skirt is the perfect après ski piece. I love it for post yoga or just looking incredibly stylish running errands around town too. I bring it along skiing as it's my go to for when I take my ski pants off...and with the full side zip it just wraps around, zips and you're good to go for the evening! The length is great, just above the knee-so it's feminine, not boxy, but not short either. Sort of like a down pencil skirt!

It's made from synthetic insulation (sorta like prima-loft) not down, so you don't have the "puffy" look. It's sleek and warm with a matte sheen to the fabric.

Soft, lovely skiable down jacket!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my go to ski jacket for cold days. I love the fit and get compliments on the fabric. It has sort of a matte sheen to it with a subtle pattern, and the diamond baffling (seaming) of the down gives it a really unique look!

That outer fabric is very soft- almost like a brushed satin- so it’s not stiff or crinkly like other down jackets I’ve tried. Though at the same time it’s abrasion resistant so it can stand up to skiing just as well as being stylish around town.

Inside I love the high loft fleece in the collar and throughout the shoulders. Just an extra touch of warmth where it counts.

Both the hood and powder skirt are removable which offers some additional versatility. The back of the jacket comes down a bit farther than waistline to offer more coverage from the cold which I think is a nice touch whether on a cold chair lift- or just while you’re out and about in town!

You'd think you were wearing yoga pants!

These Eider ski pants with Defender Stretch fabric fit like a dream! They are so comfortable they feel like you’re wearing yoga pants.

I've worn these for two seasons now and have to say I have never had a more comfortable or flattering pair of pants. I can wear them all day and not be dying to pull them off back at the car. That is thanks to the 4 way stretch and pre shaped knees. They just form to your body and are lightweight and breathable (10k waterproof, 20k breathable)

For how supple the fabric is, I've also been impressed with the durability. When I wash them up they still look brand new!

It is definitely a more tailored, close fitting pant- but they are so flattering that you’ll be happy to show off your assets while your flying down the slopes.

They have some great comfort features as well like an adjustable waist that is higher in the back to eliminate gapping and provide some protection from snow.
