The short answer is, no. It does not quite approach the 8000m category in stock form. The arms are far too low on down fill to loft up properly. Without substantial layers, one will feel the cold creep right through the arms in sub zero temperatures. The body, however, is filled well enough to keep the core warm.
The peak xv could use a few other mods to the stock design to improve. One is a thicker, more insulated draft flap rather than the basic flat flap behind the main zipper. This could also be remedied with a second front flap.
Another issue I had was the cord locks. The cheap hood cord locks are basically plastic tubes with groves to pull the cord into. It's not the most intuitive system to adjust. The hem cord is adjusted with bunched up neoprene tabs that are also unwieldy to adjust.
If you want to use this for any type of mountaineering you'll have to do without a double zipper. I'm not sure why this has not been fixed after all these years. I can only assume most buyers aren't wearing these outside of camp.
The outer shell is a relatively robust denier of cordura nylon with a waterproof layer. It's quite crinkly, and is less packable than more lightweight shells. However, if you use this jacket around town it's a non issue. Its trade off is more toughness and water resistance than more packable and breathable down friendly fabrics. One just has to decide what they want in a jacket.
Least importantly, the large Eddie Bauer logo dominates the upper chest of the jacket. I would have much preferred the first ascent logo in this position. It is still there on the upper arm though.
There's no denying this is a nice jacket that would be warm in less severe conditions. It's frequently available at a great discount as well. It's nicely constructed and is filled with a lot of down overall. I feel the lower price is reflected in the details I found lacking. However, these points can't be overlooked in more severe conditions. It's a warm jacket, but the peak xv doesn't quite measure up to the 8000m category that the marketing seems to aim for.
Excellent jacket. Much attention was paid to detail.
Pockets well thought through. Excellent high loft insulation.
Used for winter camping. Use for taking my dog out very early in the cold high desert mornings.
10-15 degrees and windy. With only a short sleeve t shirt underneath I felt like I was still inside.
I would however, recommend changing the cord pulls on each side of the hood to cord locks. The existing locking system is Too cumbersome. Otherwise👍👍
