Description

An ultralight insulator made famous on belay ledges worldwide.

When your partner has been on lead for the last hour and you’re huddled on a tiny, frigid belay ledge in the middle of a snow storm, give thanks to Patagonia for the Men’s DAS Parka. This lightweight puffy features a weather-resistant shell and high-lofting PrimaLoft insulation that keeps you warm even if it gets wet. The oversized hood fits over all types of helmets, and the two-way zipper lets you get at your belay device while keeping the jacket zipped. Large handwarmer pockets and interior mesh pockets store your chilly hands or water bottles, and Patagonia included a stuff sack for when it’s time to climb.

Hi, I'm 5'10" 160lbs , Chest:96CM , Waist:81CM, Size S OR M?Thanks

Jack,
Medium would give you a little extra room to layer underneath, and in my opinion give you a little more comfortable fit overall. Small though if you want more of a trim/snug fit and don't like your jackets loose at all. Personally I would go medium for sure.

Exactly what I needed

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

I was in the market for a mega warm puffy this winter after my last down jacket was forced into retirement. Initially I was set on down but decided to at least take a look at synthetic. To my surprise, after some research and good reviews I decided to go with the DAS parka. After getting it and trying it on, it is EXACTLY what I needed. Mega warm, looks good, beyond comfortable, and well designed features. I love wearing this to the trailhead in the morning before skinning when the temps are beyond frigid. While not fully waterproof, I wore this in the rain during a bike ride and the water just beaded off. Also, Patagonia redid the design to make it better suited for active use and clearly it works because my range of motion is not impaired whatsoever. The only downside to the jacket, and with almost all synthetic puffies in general, is the fact that it doesn't pack down small. But personally I have other jackets for hut trips and bringing on long tours. For reference, I am 6'3'' and about 180 and the large fits well. Plenty of room to layer underneath but doesn't feel huge when I'm just wearing it over regular clothes.

Nice

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

I am 6'0" 210. Slightly longer torso. Bought a large. Length is good. Past my waist. There is plenty of room for a long sleeve fleece to be worn underneath. Slightly snug around armpits with the fleece. Very warm. Wear a fleece vest underneath in winter. Walking around in 25F and I am warm. I might have tried a Medium if I had this to do over, but I am very happy with this.

So far so good

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Will take it out on ebc trek in a couple of weeks, but so far around town, 20F, im usually hot and have to take it off. Seems like an awesome piece for really cold conditions. True to size, the mexium fits perfect for me at 5'10 185 lbs. I have room for a pata r2 under it with no problems.

Customer feed back to a Gear Head

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

Hood adjusts very well with and without a helmet, but the collar is only about 2 inches high where the jacket leaves the torso and I sits right at the bottom of the chin and doesn't feel quite high enough. Fit is boxy.

Ageless Parka

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I've had my Das Parka since 2007 and, except for a small tear on the forearm (my bad), this has kept me warm and dry ever since. It does run big, in my opinion, but that does allow for more layers if you need it (probably won't). Roomy zippered pockets keep your extras handy and safely stowed.

I am trying to decide between the DAS parka and the Blank Diamond Cold Forge Hoody. Will be using for winter climbing, ski touring, and all around living in Vermont (cold, wet, and windy).

Responded on

DAS for sure! Patagonia has over 40 years experience making clothing, and the DAS is a long running style that has been refined and updated over the years. Also the DAS will be more weatherproof with it's PU coating rather than a DWR w the cold forge.

Outstanding

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I'm 6'4" 250 with an athletic build and this fits me fine. Overall, this is a great coat, stylish enough for the city, but a go-to piece for the outdoors, the area it was designed for. It's warm, and blocks the wind very well, is well built, with constant layering throughout the coat. One minor quibble is that the hood could be a little bigger/longer, though I am wearing an XL and it is probably due to my frame. The insulation in the hood is solid and should help you stay warm. With a fleece, I could see some one wearing this down to the teens or a little lower if they're daring, and easily low 30's and above with just a shirt on underneath(with a took on since the insulation in the hood is the thinnest part of the coat-though still solid). Folks looking for their hiking, rock climbing main piece should definitely check this coat out, and will make anyone happy who is looking for a warm Winter coat that ins't bulky.

I'm 6'4" 250 lbs with a 50" chest. Will an XL fit me? I usually buy XXL so a coat is somewhat roomy instead of snug. Also, is this the latest edition of the jacket? Thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Eme4398144,

The XXL would be a better choice size for you in this jacket. An XL tops out at 47 inches in the chest area so I believe it will be too snug for you. You can always try it and if it does not work use one of our return labels for $6.99.

Like a mobile bed

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I like this jacket . I don't know how it'll perform in the cold since it's obviously summer but I can at least attest to its comfort. It feels like I'm wearing a pillow and I just can't get over how comfortable it is. I've read enough reviews to know that I won't regret it or be let down when I put it on for its intended use in the winter. I'm glad I got it $100 off, that just makes it sweeter. I'm 5'10 167lbs, 39 chest and the medium fits perfect. I'm giving it 4 stars since again it's not winter so it would be dishonest to say it's perfect without putting it through a real test.

I'm 6'3", 165lbs, chest = 39", sleeve = 35", what's the best size for me? Generally a large is too baggy in the torso but better fits in arm length. Also I would probably just be wearing a tshirt underneath. Thanks.

Responded on

for your height personally I would go with a large here Paul, but you might be able to work a medium since you don't want it to be baggy in the body. The DAS runs about 1/2 size big since it's a belay parka, designed to be thrown on over layers. And since you're just rolling a t-shirt it just might work.

Responded on

Hey, Paul. Did you end up getting this coat? I have your exact same measurements, and I have the same question about choosing between the Medium and the Large.

Hey Jack,

Thanks for your question.

I would suggest a size Medium for this jacket. Patagonia DAS Insulated Parka - Men's.

I hope this helps.

Damn Great Parka

Solid parka, will keep you warm down to at least 20 degrees with nothing underneath. When hiking in the whites I love getting to the summit and putting this on, it keeps me warm and cozy even if it's zero and super windy. The hand warmer pockets are insulated on both sides and the big internal pockets are perfect for keeping water bottles, phones, and anything else warm while stopped.
Two complaints
-The sleeve length is actually pretty short, I don't think anyone would complain if the sleeves were long enough to keep your hands warm.
-The hood cinch is of the single pull variety, I see how it's nice on a summer rain jacket but it would be really nice if you could cich the hood around your face the way you can with a two way adjustable hood.
Sizing is pretty ideal, it fits over an outer shell without being all that bulky.

Hi Charlie,
Good review. How insulated is the hood? Thanks!

Responded on

The hood is very insulated and warm. It's the same amount of insulation as the arms and back of the jacket.

Medium is usually snug a large is fairly comfortable I want to use this as a belay jacket. So do you think large or extra large?

One layer to rule them all!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I usually wear Large in Patagonia outerwear, but that was just huge on me! I bought mine in a medium and it still fits over all of my other layers and I still have room for 1L water bottles in each interior dryer pocket. It's a great piece of armor and I don't go into cold climates without it!

Warm

I live north of Chicago where we have had the most sub-zero days in 30 years. The DAS performs well in this weather. Shoveling snow on a 5 degree day was like being in a furnace - I absolutely could not do hard work and wear this jacket.

Feel: The DAS is light and flexible and doesn't feel bulky in any way. I have ~41 inch chest with 34 inch sleeve length. The medium was too small, with tight armpits. The sleeve length in the medium, did not seem any too generous. So, if you are pushing the top end of the chest or arm length in the size chart, you may need to go bigger. Large is a great fit for me, right sleeve length for me and good fit in the chest and arm pits. The jacket is the most toasty when I have a higher volume mid-layer like a wool sweater.
My warmer weather (20-50 degree) go-to-jacket is the Nano Storm (now the Insulated Torrentshell). Wear the DAS on your coldest days and wear the Insulated Torrentshell on all others.

They love it

Bought for a friend who is attending school in Stockholm. He loves it. I guess if it works in Sweden it will keep you warm anywhere.

Another great jacket from Patagonia

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

I read a review of this jacket on outdoorlab.com. They are right. Warm and very light jacket. Very good mid layer for me. It has two-way front zipper which is important feature when you put harness on for snow kiting. Has enough room for layers or in my case for body protection gear (Dianese performance jacket). Breaths well. The hood perfectly fits over the helmet
