Confident warmth for our extreme weather

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

We purchased this parka two months ago for my 13 yr old son, and although he is usually a small mens size, they offer this in a size 20 boys which fit perfect ( a bit big). He has since worn it every day in the harsh cold of the central Yukon down to -46C (thats not including wind chill) so far and LOVES IT! "It is SO freakin' warm!!" were his words. Hand warmer pockets, inside pocket, great length, wind proof, water proof, great loft, warm hood, drawstrings for wind, heavy zips, taped seams...a very well made jacket!

Here we are a year down the road and the jacket itself is still in great shape...with the exclusion of the zipper that holds the hood on pulling through the stitches and the main zipper failing. Instead of chasing warranty, I have had it repaired locally and it's good to go again for the remainder of this winter...I hope!
