Everyone knows how much I loved travelling with my Eddie Bauer Ignitelite Reversible Jacket while cruising up the coast of Scotland. What started out as a search for the sleeveless version, ended in me purchasing my first ever friend-approved winter coat. I live my life based on the less is more principle, however this does not translate well in the cold days of winter.
While I would rather be heading to southern climes, I am stuck here for the short-term but am now armed with the right coat to face the wind, the wet and the cold.
My new Eddie Bauer Eastside three-in-one trench coat will take me from September to April for years to come. For cool or windy days, I will sport the stylish inner layer with its ThermFill® synthetic insulation, diamond quilting, secure zip side pockets, and its princess seams for slimming lines. On cool or wet days, the waterproof/breathable technology of the outer layer is my pick, with its StormRepel® DWR finish that sheds moisture, three secure zip pockets, a back waistband, double snap cuffs, and a drop-tail hem – useful for sitting on cold benches.
On cold, windy and wet days, I double up and am as warm as toast and ready for a winter walk along the lake anytime.
The detailed snaps and off-placed zips offer a stylish flare that differs from most trench coats…and it is machine-washable – another dear-to-my heart benefit.
