For warmth at extreme heights and spectacular views.
When you're on your way to the top of the world, whether that is one of the Earth's poles or a peak above 4000 meters, let The North Face Himalayan Down Parka keep you cozy and comfy, so you can enjoy your hardwon view. This epic puffy is stuffed with 800-fill goose down for ultra lofty warmth. Welded baffle construction keeps it all evenly distributed to eliminate cold spots. And HyVent Alpha 2L waterproof, breathable protection keeps you dry in harsh storms. Lightweight Pertex Endurance ripstop delivers smooth, tough coverage over the main body area. Tough grip zones on the shoulders and hips prevent your pack from slipping or abrading this jacket.
To keep you comfy and allow layers, this jacket has a roomy expedition fit. The magnetic collar clip manages venting when the wind is whipping, and the fully baffled hood keeps your whole head equally warm. A big, cozy draft yoke around the neck and shoulders seals out the cold and keeps in the warmth. This is the parka in the remote expedition line that Conrad Anker helps design.

Used this on several mountains in winter and on long haul skiing trips on the tundras in Norway during winter (-30C and strong winds).
No qualms what so ever. With the right layering, this is a scorcher. Great pockets for electrics and water bottles on the inside. A must for any high altitude expedition if one does not want to use a suit.
TNF's first mistake!
I bought the Summit Gold. Right out of the box, I knew it was going back. You can actually see the down fill, which makes the coat look dusty or dirty. This is the first time I've been disappointed with TNF. I'm sorry to say it, but this coat is a huge disappointed. It's not at all what I expected for $650. If you're considering buying this coat, I suggest a color other than Summit Gold. I have an assortment of TNF products and this is one of the colors I didn't have. Unfortunately, I have to wait on another model or till next year. I cant believe TNF actually produced this color after looking at it. It's more of a transparent pale yellow, than it is Summit Gold.
