Feathered Friends Men's Eos Down Jacket

Named for the goddess of the dawn, we designed the Eos jacket for early morning starts that call for an extra layer of no-fuss insulation. With just the right amount of premium 900+ fill down, this hooded down sweater excels at keeping you warm on its own when conditions call for moving light and fast, or as a layering piece when weather moves in. Equally at home on the trail or around town, this lightweight and packable jacket will do wonders in your outerwear quiver.

We expect a limited run of the Eos to be available in Spring 2019. Thanks for the patience!



Backpackers.com named the Eos a Classic Pick! Read the review here

1 week in : great lightweight winter jacket so farReview by MigukNamja
I received my Eos last week.

Pros
* Very lightweight for a daily winter jacket. It's not *the* lightest down jacket, but it's close.
* Very high insulation-to-mass ratio, thanks to its 3.7oz of 900+-fill down
* Feathered Friends provides a lot/batch card with a URL to 3rd-party testing, which I used to validate the filling exceed down exceeds 90% down clusters @ greater than 900 fill power
* Hoodie is a perfect fit for my head
* Medium is a great fit for my 6ft, 170-lb frame, including the hoodie over my head
* Sack is provided, which I keep in one of the zip pockets
* In Atlanta, nobody recognizes the 'Feathered Friends' logo, which I love. I don't want to be a brand whore (snob) for Patagonia, North Face, Canada Goose, etc. I just want a good jacket.
* Zip pockets and drawstring bottom

Cons
* Hoodie stitching where it attaches to the main body has some minor (cosmetic) flaws, but only visible up close. I am hoping it will not cause durability issues down the road.
* Does not collapse down into pocket, but requires a separate bag (which is provided)
* Stuff sack does not compress
* No hoodie cinch, but this is not a huge deal.

Next
I am looking forward to taking it on the trail. I have a few camping trips coming up over the next month. And, I obviously have no experience with durability. That will require ~years to evaluate. (Posted on 3/6/2019)
Love it! Review by Hiking Ken
FF says the Eos was designed for early morning adventures and that is spot on. I hike three days a week in the local mountains (here in AZ we call them "sky islands"). I'm one of those whose body runs on the cold side & that's why I purchased the Eos in Dec. 2018 - for its great warmth & quality. While my Patagonia down sweater is good for about 42 - 54 degrees, I needed a packable jacket to take me down below 44 degrees even down into the 20's and the Eos delivers! I'm making my temperature evaluations based upon wearing the jacket while going uphill on some decent grades & at a fairly decent pace. I wear a long sleeve polyester tee under a 250 merino wool base layer. I have done a lot of hiking this winter in the low 30's and often hit 24 - 28 degrees when in the higher elevations. Of course after hiking fast uphill for a while I get so warm that I have to take off the jacket and stow it in the stuff sack, & that's why I love packable jackets! Then if I stop for a while, I can pull the jacket back out. One tip, I had trouble stuffing the jacket in the stuff sack until I discovered that the way to stuff it is zip the jacket shut, then stuff the hood in first & work your way up the jacket until the last piece to go in is the bottom of the jacket. Now it stuffs very smoothly. Along with others, on a few occasions when it was breezy the hood needed a draw cord. Can't express how happy I am with the Eos! (Posted on 3/4/2019)
Quality Construction, Light and WarmReview by Barry
I've had this for about a month and in different weather. Light, beautifully made like all FF down products and very warm for its niche. Luv'n it. (Posted on 2/19/2019)
Better than ExpectedReview by Customer in Utah
I was comparing this jacket to the Arcteryx Cerium LT Hoody. Went ahead and ordered the Eos and took it to REI to compare the two models. No contest. The Eos is a much better quality jacket IMO, even though it lacks some features the Cerium has. I use mine for backpacking, camping, and casual wear in the Rocky Mountain region. Wear it to work too, looks fine with business casual. It's got what I would call a mildly relaxed athletic fit. The product photo makes the torso look short, but it's pretty normal in length. I can articulate my arms all over without the torso raising or the sleeves sliding up my wrists. The color is a nice looking blue on the outside, and nice looking gray on the inside. Overall, very impressed and happy with my choice. (Posted on 2/7/2019)
Excellent Down SweaterReview by Gary
I'm not one to do reviews, but had to say a few words for the EOS. I'm a fanatic about down garments and especially down sleeping bags and I for sure didn't need another down garment, but felt I needed a hooded down sweater and needed it now! I've been a long time customer of FF and am no stranger to their products. The EOS was out of stock and I waited 3 weeks till another run at their facility was made. I'm 6'-0" 170 pounds with a 34 waist and the Large fit perfect. The hood without any adjustment fit real well. The quality, the stitching, and attention to deal is Excellent. The hem is below my waist by 3" which is nice. I read some reviews before purchasing and bought the North Face L3 and Western Mountaineering Flash sweaters for comparison, which I returned. The EOS was a bit flat from being squeezed in a shipping box for a few days so after five minutes in the clothes dryer with the heat setting on low, it "Lofted up" really nice! It definitely has more loft than the other sweaters including my Patagonia down sweater. The 2 zippered outside pockets are insulated in the outer shell allowing your hands to be in direct contact with the torso. Why would you want to keep cold hands in a fully insulated pockets anyway, let's get them right next to a heat source. The EOS is a "keeper".... (Posted on 2/2/2019)
First Down JacketReview by BeakerB
This is my first down jacket and it's been a great pick! I am 5'5", 130 lbs and the XS fits perfectly. I can fit a longsleeve or light fleece comfortably under the jacket or a shell over it. (Posted on 1/21/2019)
This lightweight is as warm as many midweight jacketsReview by hypnomd
I tend to run cold. I love this jacket--- it is quite puffy, has durable outer material, and is very warm with temps in mid to upper 40's. I am 6 feet and 235 lbs and the XXL fits fine (but it wouldn't if I weighed much more than this). I know that Feathered Friends prefers more of a snug, "athletic" fit, but I personally wish they had a line that was a bit more regular or relaxed in the fit.

Keep up the great work FF (Posted on 1/2/2019)
Pretty outstandingReview by Justin
Had this jacket for a few months now, temperature dropped down to -25c today and I was nice and toasty with just this and a wool shirt underneath.

Seriously warm coat and I imagine if it is paired with a fleece undershirt and an outerlayer it will tackle just about any temperature

My first down jacket ever and I see what the fuss is about. (Posted on 12/23/2018)
Thie is a wonderful jacket!Review by Joe B
My high-end down sweater, made by a company in San Jose CA, finally had too many patches to wear in public. I decided to try a FF Eos since I love FF sleeping bags. Boy was I pleased! The size M Eos runs a little bit roomy for my 5' 9", 145 lbs., and should fit well over another layer. The materials and construction are impeccable! The hood, while not adjustable, is very comfy. The jacket is a little longer with a generous bottom hem (I have a big butt and hips), and I like the zippers on the pockets. This jacket is extremely well designed, and built out of the best materials available. I also feel that the price is competitive with imported down sweaters. It's very warm for the weight as well.

Whats my sizeReview by Dicky
Hi, need help with size. Looking at the chart, I am definitely in between size (M & L). I am stocky & of Short Measurements, weight 159 lbs, 5.5 feet, Chest 39.5 inch, waist 34 inch, sleeve 33 inch. I am going to Iceland in November to chase Northern lights & I intend to layer with Merino wool base layer mid weight & a waterproof outer jacket, so should I get a Medium or a Large Size EOS. Medium would probably have better fit, but I am afraid the jacket may be fitting around the tummy area. Pls help! Thank you.

Dicky,

Thanks for your interest in Feathered Friends Products! The consensus here in the shop is that you would likely be a Medium in the Eos. Either way I would get your order in sooner than later so if the size doesn't work out you can exchange it before your trip.

Excellent QualityReview by Rob
Very pleased with the build quality and attention to detail on this jacket. The fit of the jacket is perfect for me and the warmth to weight ratio is exactly what I was looking for. This will work perfectly for the trek I have coming up in October. Thank you for continuing to make excellent products. (Posted on 8/15/2018)
Winter Jacket?Review by Nathan
This was my first down clothing item and it has impressed. I am 6'2" 200lbs an the XL fits well (maybe a tad to big in the chest area, but most things are on me). I started using it in the fall in mid Michigan and now in the middle of winter I still use it. I can go with no gloves or hat and stay warm with a light walk. I am impressed with the warmth of this jacket, and it packs down small to take on trips.

I did not want a hood at first but now that I have one I would not go without on another purchase. (Posted on 2/8/2018)
PLEASANTLY SURPRISEDReview by GEAR JUNKIE
OK SO I GOT THIS JACKET THINKING I WANTED SOMTHING WARMER THAN MY MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR GHOST WHISPERER, WHAT I ENDED UP GETTING WAS AN ULTRA LIGHT "GO TO" JACKET THAT I SWEAR IS 75% AS WARM AS MY ARCTERYX CERES PARKA, NO I AM NOT JOKING, THIS IS A SERIOUS WARMTH TO WEIGHT RATIO JACKET, OTHER COMPANIES HAVE GONE DOWN HILL OVER THE YEARS JUST TO SAVE A FEW PENNIES, I BEG YOU NOT TO DO THE SAME, AGAIN I BEG YOU PLEASE KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND YOU WILL HAVE LIFELONG CUSTOMERS. I ALSO OWN THE SNOWY OWL BAG AND DID A 4 PART REVIEW ON THAT AS WELL, THAT IS ANOTHER GREAT PRODUCT, I WILL BE PURCHASING A ROCK AND ICE PARKA IN THE NEAR FUTURE. (Posted on 1/1/2018)
whoaReview by Rocky
Amazing down jacket, unbeatable warmth to weight ratio.

I've had numerous ultralight down jackets for backpacking and this is the best. Twice as warm as the ghost whisperer or anything comparable. I honestly wish it had a half ounce less of down because this thing is warm. I had it on multiple times in the low teens before sunrise and it has kept me 100% warm. Fit is really nice, medium is good for a 5'11" 165 lbs guy. If I could change anything I would make it a little bit thinner around the waist, but it's already a pretty good fit.
I'm gonna sell my down quilt and buy a feathered friends sleeping bag now. Highest quality, warmest down products I've found and somehow at a comparable price. (Posted on 12/24/2017)
Awesome warm and lightweight jacketReview by Mike N
Just got my EOS yesterday and took the dogs out for a couple long walks in windy mid 30s Chicago area weather.

Love it!

Incredible how warm this kept me while being so light and stuff sack packable.

Looking forward to trying it as my midlayer on colder ski days. And as I mentioned before it squishes down very efficiently to keep the stuff sack in your backpack if you get too toasty. All about being prepared with the proper gear at hand.

The only thing I'd suggest for an improvement....a drawstring for the hood. There is only elastic there now and already feels a bit loose when the wind hits at the right angle. I'm guessing over time this elastic will become a bit looser. (Posted on 12/22/2017)
AwesomeReview by On the Trail with Bart
I did a few hours of research to try to find a jacket that would be a step up from my Mountain Hardware Ghost Whisperer. The FF Eos is it. It feels almost as light as the Ghost Whisperer, but about twice as warm. I bought one for myself and another for my wife! Buy the Eos, you won't be sorry. (Posted on 11/16/2017)
Great JacketReview by Brian
I bought this jacket as a first step to ditching my sleeping bag and moving to a quilt for ultralight backpacking. I just finished a 4 day trip to the Sierra where we slept 3 nights at 11K+ feet with night time temps at 50 degrees, 35 degrees and 30 degrees for the three nights respectively. With my bag unzipped and pulled below my neck this jacket was a great substitute for a mummy bag and kept me warm on both of the colder nights (I had to remove it on the 50 degree night as it was WAY too warm). This jacket is much warmer than the name brand down sweater we are all familiar with.

What I really love about it is how much better the handwarmer pockets are than my last down jacket. My only wish for this jacket would be an inside chest pocket.

I ordered this last minute with a comment that I needed it by a certain date and it arrived a day earlier than required, now that is customer service to suit such a well crafted jacket. I will be buying my wife one for her birthday this year (SHHHH dont tell her ;) (Posted on 7/20/2017)
Amazing jacketReview by Rubenbec

Best........ ''Sweater''....... EVER!Review by RUBEN
I just purchased the Eos in January and here are my initial impressions. Although FF bills the Eos as a ''sweater'', it is really more of a light jacket. I also own a Patagonia down sweater and the Eos blows it away in terms of warmth! I am cold -natured so I was a bit concerned the Eos would not keep me warm. The Eos has probably twice the loft of the Patagucci, and is 900 fill vs. the 800 fill of the Patagucci. The trim fit of the Eos also contributes to the warmth, I believe(less dead air space).

WARMTH: I tested the jacket in my backyard one morning. Temp was 30deg F. Windchill of 18deg F. I was wearing a capilene baselayer, and an Ibex wool zip-t. I was quite comfortable for the 30 minutes I was sitting out there. I specifically wanted to simulate sitting around camp as opposed to being active while wearing the Eos.

FIT: I am 5'9'', 185 lbs, 34 inch waist and bought a size large. The Eos fits me really well, it's just a little snug in the armpit area. It's nice and snug at the waist which I like.
The elastic cuffs could stand to be a bit smaller to better seal the wrists. Hood fits well over a beanie.

LAYERING: I can wear the jacket comfortably over a baselayer and trim midlayer such as the Ibex Shak, or Patagonia R1 fleece. Note: I did manage to wear the jacket over a baselayer and my ArcTeryx Atom LT, but it's a little tighter.

WEIGHT: Size LG Eos came in at 13 ounces exactly, in it's stuffsack, at my local Post Office. Outstanding!

CUSTOMER SERVICE: This is my 4th product purchase from Feathered Friends. I got some great service from Neil, Michael, and Wes. I do not live in the Seattle area and so I had some concerns buying long-distance. Neil was especially helpful.

BOTTOM LINE: The Eos is the best down ''sweater'' on the market. 13 ounces, 900 fill-power, and super warm for the weight. BUY ONE! (Posted on 2/4/2017)
Fantastic Light Weight Jacket!Review by Josh
This is my first FF product, but I was familiar with the name and the great reputation that came with it. A friend of mine recommend to me that it's time for me to give it a try, since my now retired down jacket needed to be replaced. I was conflicted as to whether to go with the lightweight or mid-weight jacket. Since I generally create quite a bit of metabolic heat, I decided to go with the lightweight. I've actually been too warm at times with a long-sleeve shirt underneath in high 20s to low 30 degree temps. I live in Buffalo, NY and we have a pretty notable reputation for our long winters. The other day I was gathering wood for some projects on the edge of Lake Erie on a cold and windy day! I was getting sprayed with freezing cold mist, but this jacket held up incredibly! I'm 5'5" 163lbs and the medium fits great and with room to spare underneath for additional layers. Well done Feathered Friends, this certainly won't be my last purchase from you and I'll continue to spread the word that your reputation carries! Thank You. (Posted on 1/29/2017)
