Eddie Bauer Performance Wear Review

What do you think of when you think “Eddie Bauer?” Comfy slippers worn by a fire, fur-lined down vests and quality flannel shirts, right? Well, now you can think of Eddie Bauer when you dream about running because EB performance wear is here!

Here are just a few of the many items offered (and the ones I tested):

First up is the Hangfire Pro Hooded Jacket (MSRP: $129).

Living in Colorado where mother nature can be an unpredictable bitch, I have a wide assortment of running clothes. One item that I lacked, however, was a running jacket that worked for very cold temps (under 20 degrees), but had some breathability. Enter the Hangfire jacket. I tried this for the first time when we had an arctic blast of snow and zero degree temps (and when I did my best to look like a boy).

The jacket is form fitting, yet is easily worn over multiple layers. It has a fleece-lined hood that can be worn under a helmet for cycling, skiing, etc. When fully zipped, it has a high neck that can protect the bottom of the face. I would highly recommend this jacket as your go-to cold weather running choice. You really only need one quality item like this, so why not get the best?

Next, I’ve got the Incendiary 1/4 Zip Pullover (MSRP: $70). This is a wicking base layer that is designed to be worn against the skin to generate heat. This is designed to have a snug fit that does not impair mobility. In terms of aesthetics, I really love the length of this pullover. Some running tops can be short and hit just below my waistband. This one goes a few inches longer, allowing for greater warmth but also covering my butt, which no one needs to see anyway.

It is hard to tell from the picture, but there is a subtle striped design on this pullover, which gives it a unique flair. It also comes in green, bright blue and plum. In regards to size, this could fit me a bit tighter, so I should have gone with x-small, not small. Keep that in mind if you order.

This is my best effort to look like I am a magazine model since I will never be one.

Also pictured above are Eddie Bauer’s Movement Leggings (MSRP: $75). These running tights are comfy and allow for excellent mobility. There are no strangely placed seams that hit your lady parts awkwardly and painfully like the time I wore THESE.  While these tights are not, IMHO, designed for freezing cold weather, they do well in temps down to 25 or so degrees. If you need a pair of durable, wicking, machine-washable tights, these are for you.

Lastly, we’ve got the Power Stretch Beanie (MSRP: $16). This would be a great stocking stuffer. This is a lighter weight hat with a hole in the back for your ratty pony tail (well mine is ratty). It is warm, yet not heavy and fits snugly on the head. A bonus is that it’s got reflective tape for visibility and is machine washable.

Bottom line – quality performance wear with a stylish flair (like that rhyme?).

And, guess what? I just learned, everything at Eddie Bauer is 40% off today with free shipping!!

  1. I'm interested to hear what you think of the Brooks shoes you are wearing in these photos. I have the same pair and while I think they're really comfortable, I haven't found them to be durable - the uppers are fine but the soles seem to be breaking down really fast. This is my first experience with Brooks shoes - and maybe I just got a dud pair - but I usually get significantly more miles out of a pair of shoes than I'm going to get from these!

    1. I am a huge fan of the Brooks Pure Cadence. Mine seem to be pretty durable and I haven't any issues that way so far.

      Delete
    2. I actually have found the same thing. I wear the Brooks Pure Flows (on pair six) and I cannot get the same mileage out of them as I do out of my Brooks Glycerins. However, I still get 250-300 miles out of them.

  2. I love that for once we are hearing about Eddie Bauer in the running apparel world! You always hear the standards...Nike, UA, Pear Izumi, etc. I really like their stuff, running or otherwise! I might need to get that Hangfire jacket!

  5. What type of tights would you wear for freezing weather?

    1. Anything fleece lined. I have some from Go Lite, but I think they are going out of business

    2. Brooks makes a really nice pair of fleece lined running tights. Cant remember the name but there are no annoying seams and they are very warm! I think C9 has some as well.

  6. I know I don't know you, but I feel like I do. That's the price of celebrity, you know. You've been on my worry list since your last post. Hope you have the support you need to get through whatever you are going through.

    On a lighter note, I was tickled when I saw you wearing the identical purple Brooks to mine. I'm on my second pair. I have been curious how they were working out for you. I can see the answer is "well" which is great as I value your opinion.

  7. Okay, I don't know why, but I read this post title as "Eddie Bauer Performance Perfume Review" and couldn't figure out why you would stoop so low as to showcase a "performance perfume." (By the way, I don't think that's a thing) I was so confused when I saw a bunch of awesome performance WEAR and no mention of a scent. I'm in the middle of law school finals, so I think my mind is going nuts.

  9. Oh, that jacket sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing your opinion.

  10. it looks like that jacket doesn't have thumb holes...those are a must!

    1. Yes it absolutely does have thumb holes!!

  11. Wow! I had no clue that Eddie Bauer had such great running stuff. I'm in love with that jacket!

  12. I rarely buy new gear but I'll keep this in mind for future purchases. Really, lately, I've been content with whatever i find on my floor to throw on. Yesterday I ran in a pair of tights from 1997 and an old Nike fleece shell that makes me look like Chris Farley in his "Fat Man in Little Coat" skit. Luckily, I had a longer layered under armor shirt underneath (that my mother in law bought me in 2001). I'm so NOT stylish these days. But people see me coming. So many good pieces of gear out there. Lucky for you, you just keep writing this blog and I'm pretty sure you won't ever have to purchase running gear again. ha! Just write about it.

  13. I actually have the blue striped shirt, but not the 1/4 zip. It has no zipper. I love it, but you are right, they run a tad bigger. I'm normally a medium sized kind of girl. I could have gone with a small and would have been fine. And I love the length.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Please let me never live somewhere cold enough that I need to wear these!!! (Nice looking gear, though)

  15. Not to hijack, but are those antlers coming our of your head on the close up picture? I'd keep of the trails during deer hunting season. :-)

I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(greatpowerspelltemple@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster .
