Warm yet not bulky

Haven't had a lot of cold days to wear it this winter. I did spend around 4 hours outside in it the other day. Temps ranged from around 15 to mid twenties. It was a windy day as well. I wore a long sleeve polo under it, and alternated between walking around and standing still. Usually walked for about twenty minutes, then stood for ten or so. I was comfortable the entire time. The pockets are very roomy, including the chest pocket. The hood didn't get in my way when looking around when it was down, unlike two of my other parkas.

Loaned it to someone later in the day, they were impressed with it as well. Commented that is was warmer than they expected since it wasn't as bulky as their parka.

I haven't tried packing it yet, I did roll it up just out of curiosity, and it was a smaller roll than either of my other older parkas.

I will be curious to see how it does in heavy snow or sleet.


Fits great and it is better than expected.


Well made and recommend a size smaller unless you layer a lot of clothes and live in a colder climate.


Is absolutely amazing for my -30 to -50 days here up north. Totally worth every penny!

L8 parka

I love it! I live near Chicago and was a firefighter/paramedic for 40 years. I don't miss working outside in sub zero temperatures. But, I own a dog that needs to go out. The service was impeccable and quick. Thank you for keeping me warm@
