Unanswered Question

Does this parka come with a stuff/compression sack? If not, what size sack would you suggest?

I have the nitrous 800 fill down jacket and the exposure shell. Together they weigh around 47 oz. Would they worn together be as warm as this absolute zero jacket which has 800 fill down and weighs 49 oz? The absolute zero has an insulated hood whereas the nitrous and exposure combination hood is not insulated. Is this the only difference?

Responded on

This jacket is way warmer than the Nitrous. The shell weight has no insulating properties. A jacket like this would go over your nitrous and exposure shell. I used a down sweater, micro puff, then a shell, and had this jacket for the extreme cold.

This jacket is actually owned by Bill whose review is actually located below, it's a size XL, I'm roughly 5'5" 130lbs, and this thing comes down over my knees when I'm standing straight. It's about 4 inches longer than my arms as well. BIG JACKET. FEEL LIKE A PUFF BALL.

I think you might need to size up a little bit. Looks a little small.

I agree with Mr. Glaubman on this front.
That jacket looks too tight to possibly perform basic functions.
Size up at least 3x. :)

Ok your wearing a mens xl down and its big on you wow what a revaluation .
Bill not sure if you realize this but these are made for survival at extreme altitudes and conditions not tooling around in a tent backpacking. Two people one ridiculous waste of time review . Your face in your tent you had to get that selfie in to really sell it

It's a cocoon!

I took this monster to Aconcagua and Denali - both trips this year - and it performed amazingly well. I wear a large, and am 6'2" and 195 (in reasonable shape). On Denali summit day I wore 2 base layers, a soft shell, and an Atom SV under this and was toasty warm despite very cold temps and high winds. In other words, plenty of room to layer. I suggest a compression stuff sack for this garment - it is puffy. BTW, I tried an XL and it was too big all around.I am frankly surprised that there are not more reviews of this parka here.

Extremely Warm

Thankfully we didnt have to wear it to much but when we did it worked. You definitely lose some dexterity when wearing this jacket its HUGE and PUFFY and keeps you warm in almost any kind of cold. I am sure there are places where this would not work and I probably wont visit them. I am 5'8" about 200lbs bought and XL to make sure it would fit over my other jackets and it was perfect.

Does this AbsoluteZero have hand pockets...

Does this AbsoluteZero have hand pockets in addition to chest pockets? It is described in other website that there are handpockets. Is this product produced this year? Or is it from years before? Why do you have more discount than others?

Responded on

yes it does, you can even see the pocket in the pic of the orange one.. you can see the top of a pocket!

if you are going to order one, be mindful of the short arm length MHW are doing this year.. its stupid!

Best Answer Responded on

Backcountry just do good sales on certain items at all different times.
