Perfect for it's designed intention
- Gender: Male
This jacket is perfect for it's designed intention - streetwear. I love having a jacket from a brand I trust that will still hold up to the harshest conditions, even if I'm in them just going about my day. Don't have to wear out any ski gear doing the around town stuff. The outer hyvent is burly and doesn't leave me worrying about rips or scuffs. The cuffs adjust nicely and the pockets all have closures of some type. The thing this jacket is lacking is a drawcords at the hem. Can't figure out why that wasn't included, particularly at a $300 price point.
I purchased this parka along with the TNF stone sentinel and ended up keeping this one. The main difference is that the sentinel is cut longer. The shorter cut of this jacket still hits me below the waist and gives it more of an "everyday" feel . A very capable winter parka.
What's the temp ratings for this jacket,...
What's the temp ratings for this jacket, live up north and we get down to -20 F
Temperature ratings are typically not used for outerwear, as it depends heavily on your activity level and whether you're normally cold or warm. What works at -20* for me, who throws off a lot of heat may only work down to 0* for someone who gets cold easily.
That being said, this parka is not as heavy as a true expedition parka. If you're more cold-blooded and will be wearing this for casual use, it may fall short for -20*F if you're standing idle.
Function with Fashion
This particular jacket hits the sweet spot of good features, good price, and good styling, in one piece. The down insulation at 550 fill power is excellent for it's recommended casual use. In addition to this it's also fully waterproof, and the HyVent technology has decent breathability. If you are not a fan of the faux fur you can always remove it, or the hood altogether, for a sleeker look.
TL;DR Excellent streetwear jacket with higher end features.
