Stuff We Like: First Ascent's Paradise Zip

Lightweight, comfy with full range of motion.

Looking to expand beyond its casual-clothing image, Eddie Bauer launched its First Ascent high-performance line this season. Judging by the Paradise Zip ($49), that’s great news. The reasonably priced Paradise is lightweight, with the right amount of spandex for full range of motion without being overly snug. And unlike some base layers, it’s soft and comfortable. The First Ascent line is designed as a system: Insulating layers and outerwear are cut so that the body and sleeve lengths of each successive layer are slightly longer than the previous one. firstascent.com
