Look good, feel good is Eider’s moto. An Alps based company born from tailor Georges Ducruet’s passion for well cut clothing and his love for skiing, Eider has been around for 50 years, known for its elegance and function. When I put the Eider Revelstoke 2.0 jacket on for the first time I couldn’t take it off.
When living in a ski town, looking good off the hill is just as important as while riding. The first night I had the jacket I couldn’t wait to wear it on my commute to the local watering hole. Thanks to the PrimaLoft Silver Eco insulation and the fleece lining, I was warm and cozy all while turning heads.
The same goes for on the mountain.
This jacket is definitely on the heavier side. But, with 80g of insulation on the body and 60g on the sleeves Eider strategically mapped out insulation to minimize the bulk and give it a perfect fit. This is the complete resort jacket requiring very little layering underneath and plenty of built in features – Electronics pocket with head-phone port, internal cuff extensions, and built in goggle cloth. However, spending most of my time riding in Jackson Hole where there are lots of possibilities for in bounds hikes or side-country missions, this jacket can be a little too much. But, for crushing casual resort laps, this jacket nails it.
The Revelstoke 2.0 has a 2L Defender membrane/laminate construction for waterproofing and breath-ability. I was impressed by the 20,000mm waterproofing, even when going full tomahawk I managed to stay dry and protected. Like I said the jacket is warm, especially on these spring days we’ve been having in Jackson. But, the jacket still breathes and underarm vents help to regulate even more. I am eager to wear this jacket on colder days and push its limits.
Everyone needs a resort jacket that they can throw on and be able to skip the warm up lap.
The Revelstoke Jacket 2.0 by Eider ($329.95) is the perfect mix of style and function. It will keep you looking good and feeling good after a day of riding and onto the Apres.
