During the 1930’s Bauer was on a fishing trip in the wilderness of Washington State when he suddenly found himself in a terrifying situation: the sun was setting and the temperature going down. As Bauer was climbing up a hill he started to feel sleepy, also provoquing that strikes fear in the heart of any outdoorsman. He knew from experience that the early stages of hypothermia were close to him and when he reached around to feel his back all he ended up touching was pure and solid ice.
His good old wool jacket had become waterlogged and was now reduced to nothing more than a coat of frost about to freeze him to death. Luckily, Bauer was able to get out of the mountain alive that treacherous night with the goal to make a better winter coat so no other traveler would ever experience what he went through. Weight was crucial to Bauer’s idea, as he wanted to design something that wouldn’t soak and weigh the wearer down.
The Russian military had experimented with down feathers in the past, so Bauer decided to try it for his design. He filled a prototype jacket with down insulation and while the warmth was there, there was now a new problem; the feathers sank to the bottom of the coat, which was both awkward and ineffective.
Bauer decided to quilt up the jacket and creating small diamonds that would evenly distribute the heat throughout the whole piece, while sealing it off with ribbed cuffs and collars that helped to trap the heat and block out the wind. Bauer began selling his new invention, dubbing it The Skyliner.
The jacket quickly caught on and in 1939 he patented the quilted design, which helped solidify his reign as the King of Down for decades to come. Unfortunately, with the pass of the years, interest in the outdoorsy Skyliner ceased and in 1995 the Eddie Bauer brand decided to no longer produce the jacket.
For modern men who might prefer a newest version, in both fit and features, designer Nigel Cabourn has produced a new take on the Skyliner as part of his collaboration with the Bauer brand. By adding a shearling collar, a fur lined hood, and leather accents, Cabourn has been able to style up what was once just
a utilitarian jacket.
