The Eiger jacket keeps you dry, even when you're sweating up a storm in a storm. It uses a proprietary softshell fabric strategically to deliver a hooded jacket with superb breathability and enough water resistance to keep you dry when the weather is wet. To block wind and rain the Eiger is constructed with a water-resistant 3-layer softshell on the hood, shoulders, lumbar zone, and arms with a lighter, more breathable, 4-way stretch fabric under the arms, chest, and back. Elastic knit cuffs stop cold at the wrists. Zipped hand pockets are easily accessed even with a pack on, and there’s an internal chest pocket for small items. The helmet compatible hood cinches tight around your head with draw cords on either side, and there's a laminated brim to keep rain from dripping on your face.

Eiger in action
I've been a prisoner of GTX for several years. While backcountry skiing I can't skin with my shell on; it's just far too hot. Some ski partners were busting my chops for not having an all-around layer that's good in most conditions. Finally, a month ago, I walked into the Boulder store and bought the MEN'S EIGER JACKET, a great fitting, nice feeling softshell. I'm 5'10, 150lbs, and typically wear size small everything. I sized up to the Medium, which fits comfortably under my climbing harness (the cinches don't get squeezed against my hip like in my GTX shell). While dry tooling in Rocky Mountain National Park, the jacket moved with me incredibly well, no bunching or pulling up when my hands were above my head (pulling on ice tools). When ski touring, I wore it with only a base layer underneath and it was perfect most of the time. If I needed more insulation while standing around I would throw my puffy over top, but I generally run quite hot and the Eiger seemed to breathe quite well. It's not the most wind-resistant, but that's ok. I'm generally thankful for a breeze coming through to keep me from sweating. I like the elastic cuffs, which keeps out snow or dripping water from your arms. It's a perfect piece for Colorado's dry winters. I skied one day in Tahoe (rain/snow mix), and I did get soaked, but so did everyone else even in GTX. Sadly, after only 3 weeks of owning the jacket, it disappeared somewhere between Tahoe and Colorado. I'm thinking pretty hard about buying a new one because I really did love it...but the season is almost over. Maybe I'll let the sting of my loss wear off a little longer before getting a new one in the fall. This was my first technical soft shell (after 4 or so GTX hard shells), and I really did love it."
