Seriously lightweight and streamlined, Eddie Bauer’s First Ascent BC Sandstone Stretch Jacket is extremely waterproof, breathable and comfortable. Managing editor Bob Sexton got one to try out this spring and was impressed on how well it performed on some very wet days, especially considering that the fabric feels more like brushed cotton than typical waterproof gear. Made with Eddie Bauer’s WeatherEdge fabric, it also has a super durable water resistant finish on the exterior. Fully seam-sealed, it’s built to withstand the toughest of conditions. Available in Ascent Blue and DK Smoke.
