Very warm and good against a little rain

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I haven't used this jacket in the middle of the winter yet but I've used it in pretty cold weather and it has worked really good. I have also used it in a little rain and I think it worked really good. I didn't get wet at all but I was only walking it a little rain for about 15 minutes.

The chest pockets are really nice for my small gloves so they are always there in case I need them. The inside pocket is good for my phone so it stays warm and the battery lasts longer. I know some people said they don't like the hood but I think its pretty good. I haven't been snoboarding with it or used it in the middle of the winter but I like the hood so far.

I'm 5 feet 7.5 inch. and 178 pounds and the large works good fo me.

How is this for Waterproof?

How is this for Waterproof?

Responded on

The Gore Windstopper is not waterproof. It is however windproof. The face fabric and coatings will shed light moisture but will definitely not keep you dry in a downpour as there is no waterproof membrane and there are a ton of seams that will leak through.

How long is the center back length of this...

How long is the center back length of this jacket? Is the cut longer or shorter than the Patagonia Down Sweater's? And the Marmot Fulcrum's or Treeline's? Thanks!

Solid buy

Bought this jacket a couple weeks ago and couldn't be happier. I was digging through different websites and stores trying to find a warm, windproof jacket that had a hood and wasn't too puffy, and this one is perfect. I've spent several hours outside in MI's snow/sleet/rain/wind between 10-40 degrees with a light sweater underneath and stayed perfectly warm. I'm 6', average build and the large fits great.

Why does patagonia make a big deal about...

Why does patagonia make a big deal about this jacket/fabric being 'windproof'? Any nylon (or polyester) shelled jacket with insulation is functionally windproof. Why pay extra for this gore windstopper fabric? what's the big deal?

Responded on

The addition of the Gore Windstopper fabric makes this jacket more durable, and warmer, which is what the designers set out to do - being fully windproof is a bonus. This jacket is designed for the nastiest conditions, if it's 20 below and super windy then a regular nylon or poly insulated jacket might not feel so windproof.

Responded on

?!? really...!? it's a wonder that I survived 20+ years of ascents & descents in the Northeast White mountain, the Rockies, and the Alps with my pathetic nylon garments. More durable? That I can get on board with. Even 'ripstop' nylon tears with alarming ease when it comes into accidental contact with ice tools, etc. So if this new fabric is more durable, then great. But please let's not get overly caught up in a manufacturer's claims about something like wind-proofness. Traditional insulated nylon/poly jackets (like the DAS parka) offer all the 'windproofness' we'll ever need. One last question on this jacket: Why no separating bottom zipper (for belaying etc)?

I am looking for a mountaineering jacket...

I am looking for a mountaineering jacket that will work both as a belay jacket and as a warm camp/sleeping jacket. How does Apastron compare to the DAS parka? It seems to have more insulation; what else? How packable is it? Is the shell water-repellent? What is the fit on it? I am 6'2'' and 175 lb and my Patagonia Nanopuff is Medium and fits easily over a sweater. I think I would also be Medium in DAS, but Apastron looks slimmer - would I need a Large? Thanks!

Responded on

The Apastron is basically a beefed up, windproof DAS. Similar fit, but the Apastron is quite a bit warmer due to more insulation, and the addition of the gore windstopper soft shell exterior. It is definitely a great belay and camping jacket, the one spot where the DAS takes the nod is in packability since the windstopper soft shell here makes it less packable. Definitely one of the warmest jackets Patagonia has ever made.

Responded on

Thank you, this really helps! Any idea about the sizing?

Responded on

For a jacket like this I think bigger is better since it will be warmer and more comfortable. I'm 6' 170 and would go large for myself. I think both medium and large will fit you ok, go medium if you're worried about packability since it will be a little smaller.

Responded on

The Apastron is definitely a slimmer cut. I tried on both the DAS and Apastron today. For me (5'8", 150lbs) the medium Apastron fit really well. The medium DAS was too baggy around the sides. I think the small DAS would've been the right size but there wasn't one for me to try on.

Best Answer Responded on

I'm 5' 10" 180 lbs and the Men's L fits me very well. Fit is much less roomy than the DAS parka. the DAS parka is cut very generously so you can put it on over your climbing clothing. The Apastron is cut more traditionally. It is warmer than my DAS parka. The only thing I don't like about the Apastron is the hood. The whole neck/face area is too loose. It doesn't form a tight seal on your neck/chin. Cold winds just pour in. It does not cover enough of the side or front of the face. Unless the cold wind is coming from behind you, your cheeks, face etc are quite exposed. Tightening the adjustment strings doesn't help.
