Eddie Bauer Winter Performance Apparel

Eddie Bauer has always been synonymous with rustic outdoor activities like fishing, camping, hunting, etc… I remember having an Eddie Bauer backpack in middle school and it was awesome! So when I recently heard that they have a new line of performance wear I was both intrigued and a bit skeptical, but thankfully I was pleasantly surprised! Let’s take a look…
This is a great base layer for colder temps! The shirt is made from Eddie Bauer’s exclusive FreeHeat™ Pro polyester/spandex fabric, which actually helps to generate additional heat when worn against the skin by harnessing kinetic ultraviolet energy. So it keeps you very warm, but also helps to wick moisture from the skin to help avoid with chafing. Big win there. I also really like this turquoise color I got, but all the other colors are pretty cool too…green, purple and black.
Oh and it also has my favorite winter weather gear accessory…thumbholes!
This is by far my favorite piece because it’s so much more than activewear. This jacket is a great shell for colder days on top of the pullover and because it is also made of polyester/spandex fabric it is just as flexible. There is even Polartec® Power Dry® stretch fleece underarm panels for extra moisture wicking and breathability. It some great features, like a scuba-style hood the covers your entire neck and stays put even in super windy conditions.
How about this neat opening on the inside of the jacket into the right pocket for your headphones to fit though. No loose flying cords here!
Oh look…more thumbholes! These are great because the cuffs are stretchy to ensure a secure fit and the holes actually have a flap under them
This jacket has quickly become my go to both for exercise and in daily life. It’s perfect to throw on over a sweater to go out because it is lightweight but still super warm. I seriously love this thing!
Being vertically challenged, I have always found full length exercise pants and leggings to be a challenge. They are generally made for much taller people but these fit me great. There was still a small bit of bunching around the ankles by nothing like other pants I have tried.
These pants are super comfortable and form fitting….perfect for running or any other exercise. I rowed 6000 meters in them the other days and stayed cool and comfortable the whole time. There’s even a Power Mesh lining in the waist band to flatten the midsection so they make you look really good!
I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting a lot of these clothes before I got them. I’m not quite sure what I was expecting, but definitely not my new favorite workout clothes.
Good news is that Eddie Bauer is having a sale right now and all of these items are included. It’s the perfect way to stock up on your cold weather running gear to get a Christmas present for that runner in your life. Click on any of the links above to check out these items…I know you’ll love them!
