Women’s First Ascent Frontpoint Jacket
Reviewed by Active Gear Review

“The First Ascent Frontpoint Jacket is a great all mountain jacket that combines soft and hard shell technology to provide an excellent barrier that can handle the harsh winter elements. The jacket has a nice feminine streamlined fit while also accommodating extra layers, such as a First Ascent Downlight® Sweater. We felt that the Frontpoint Jacket, despite weighting a mere 15.2 oz, can serve as an excellent outer shell for winter pursuits or a great spring/fall companion for high intensity activities in questionable weather. Overall, another nice piece from Eddie Bauer’s First Ascent line!”

“The BC-100 jacket is simple, lightweight and, at $129, the least expensive jacket in their men’s outerwear lineup. Despite looking like the designer chose the color immediately after seeing a performance of Blue Man Group, the build of the jacket is subtle and tight. Seams, zippers, Velcro — all are pro-grade — without being the least bit flashy. The small touches, such as the angle of the cuff-closure tabs and placement of the pockets, were clearly thought out by someone who knows what it’s like to actually wear one of these things in real life.”

    Maybe, it is time to make this gear available on the other side of the Atlantics?… I have to say that all layers look really impressive and the rationale behind them solid and convincing. Placed a huge order and now I am bracing myself for a duty tax… Will let you know about my first impressions pronto!
