JMarRunswrote a review of Eider Blow Alpha II Insulated Jacket - Men's on March 1, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I'm from NC and this jacket is all I need during the winter. I wear it almost daily and have had zero issues. From November to late March, it's perfect. Well made, warm, stays dry. I've never owned a jacket like this and was considering a ThermoBall or Kuhl but got this one last spring for $124.99. Could not pass up that deal. I did a lot of research (I was going to NOLS) and everything I read about Eider was positive. Was really the only jacket I used for two weeks in Wyoming (southern Wind Rivers) in July. As was suggested above, it is a European, athletic fit. I'm 6'0", 170 with a long torso and the large fits correctly. if you want a looser fit, size up. I will be getting more Eider gear in the future.
