Eddie Bauer is a Seattle legend who started his first outdoor sports shop in 1920 for people seeking adventure in the Northwest mountains and forest. Eddie stayed warm in the winter under a down quilt, which gave him the idea for the quilted down jacket and vest for outdoor enthusiasts. Leftover feathers were then used for Badminton shuttlecocks. From out of that spirit, the store was born. Today, Eddie Bauer offers a full line of hats, outerwear, shoes and other apparel for men, women and children sold online and at 370 stores nationwide.
