Maybe you know Eddie Bauer for its flannels or its button-downs. The brand has made a name for itself as a maker of everyday staples, but did you know that Eddie Bauer himself played a pivotal role in the invention of the down jacket as we know it today? In 1935, Bauer was returning from a fishing trip on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula when freezing rain soaked his clothing. As hypothermia began to set in, Bauer fired his rifle to call for help. Luckily, it came, and Bauer started working on a lightweight, down-filled jacket that would provide warmth in similar survival situations.

Down jackets are now ubiquitous, and today, Eddie Bauer the company continues to work with the world’s top mountaineers to continually improve them. For Black Friday, you can snag one for a wildly affordable price thanks to a 50 percent discount (you can pick one up for as little as $50). Our favorites include the EverTherm, which is incredibly warm for how light it is, and the BC EverTherm, which adds a waterproof shell to the exterior.

Deal expires 12/2/19.
