Eddie Bauer Centennial Collection Down Camp Suit

Eddie Bauer is 100 years old and in honor, they’ve introduced several limited edition items, like this Centennial Collection Down Camp Suit.

Dating from 1957, down filled auits were used by mountaineers and was used on the the first American expedition to summit Mt. Everest, in 1963. They’ve updated the design amd are using 650 fill Responsible Down Standard (RDS) down to keep you warm to about -20 F. It’s got a ribbed knit collar and cuffs, drop seat for relief and a cell phone pocket on the thigh.

Offered in Medium, Large and XLarge in Black with Yellow lining.

    Back in the early 80’s I read an interview with Eddie Bauer, himself. Interesting point he made was, paraphrased, “everybody thinks Eddie Bauer got rich from WWII. The truth is we, we lost our shirt, almost went bankrupt, trying to support military contracts and the war effort.” They provided more down-filled flight suits as reduced price private-purchases than mil contracts, at least early in the war. They were bought by civilian pilots flying in the various military air transport, ferrying, and support operations, as well as by military aircrew. T don’t know if these were ever standardized as military items.
