If I had $1,000 spare, I'd buy one outfit for the winter months: a First Ascent Peak XV down-suit. I could save money from not having to heat my house, I suppose. Sorry, visitors. [EddieBauer via DoobyBrain via Likecool]

First Ascent, eh? Looks nice and cozy but If im headed to Everest, im not going to be getting my gear from the Eddie Bauer store in the mall. This is a new brand for them and its designed to make you think of Eddie Bauer as a North face, Marmot, Mammut, or arc'teryx...um no.
Although their FA gear that isn't quite so pretentious is actually pretty nice stuff for kicking around the house or cruising the high mountain stip malls looking for that perfect brass cowboy for your front room.
