Why We Built The GORE-TEX Down Parka

When the flakes are wet and falling fast, we're safe and warm inside the defenses of our GORE-TEX Down Parka. More than just a stylish silhouette, this fully waterproof down piece is backed by the breathable protection of GORE-TEX, and layered with soft, air-trapping goose down. Its generous cut falls right on our thighs, giving us the coverage we need for touring holiday markets, exploring ski towns, or everyday urban commuting.

My daughter is off to university in Minnesota so we were looking for a very warm, waterproof coat. She does not care for the puffy coat look which limited our options. Nor was she looking to layer a lot when going from extreme cold walking across campus into warm classrooms or dorms. Layers would create a lot of material to juggle. This coat fits the bill perfectly. The "puffiness" is hidden under the Goretex outer, it is long to cover her when it gets really cold, the hood is very deep to hide from extreme winds and the waterproof Goretex is perfect for snowstorms. She loves the thumb holes to help keep the sleeves from riding up. She is 5'8, 125 lbs but with really broad shoulders and long arms. Based on reviews we bought both the L and XL. The L fits great. Now we wait for winter to see if it is as warm as we think it will be.

I am 4' 10" and very petite but had to get a size M just for it to fit around my chest and that was tight, which made the sleeves, shoulders, and length way too long. I really with this was made in petite sizes because this is such a wonderful coat, I was very disappointed I had to return it. I have said this runs small because I can't imagine someone needing a coat at that length and sleeve size to be so small around the body.

I usually wear a 3/4 length down or fleece lined lightweight jacket. I have an older jacket I use for working in snow, but it feels bulky on me in recent years. I wanted a jacket that looks nice, will support beach and trail walks, mountain adventures, and be in my car or on my back for adventures. This arrived last night and I tried it on. It has ample room, I wear a S or M in Patagonia, Lowle, Prana, and I ordered the L in this jacket based on the reviews. It fits perfect. I am 5'3", 160 about, depending on the season. I will be able to layer. It has room, and I am excited for fall. Really good value on sale.

Thank you for the awesome review!

I felt very constricted. Large is the size I get for all tops and jackets but I couldn’t bend my arms comfortably and it really brought out my love handles ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I would go up one size.

I’d been looking for a very warm waterproof down jacket and found this one from backcountry at a great price. I love it! Not only is it super warm, it also fits very well, a little less bulky than most down jackets. (I got the large so I’d have room for layers) Plus I love all the pockets!

Warm, but not too bulky. I purchased a size Large which is my normal size and I have enough room to layer under it if need be. I love all the pockets, the length and the wrist gaiters. The only thing I wish this jacket had is the tall collar feature that the Backcountry Men's Parka has.

Hello! What temperatures have you used this jacket in? I am planning a trip to Europe in winter but I wanted to first know if this jacket can withstand. Thanks!

I see that in the specs it’s listed at 800 fill. What is the fill weight? Meaning, how many ounces of down fill in this jacket?

Hey Cherisa! Unfortunately, we do not have the down fill weight information for this jacket. I apologize about that!

How's this Gore-tex parka for SKIING? (in mid-wet conditions?) Thx!

Hey Lisa! This jacket is designed more with casual-wear in mind. Most folks will prefer to have synthetic insulation in a ski jacket, rather than down, because it's more breathable and retains warmth even if it gets wet. The longer length might also hinder some mobility while skiing. While you can certainly wear this jacket skiing, there are other options that are better suited for the activity. Feel free to reach out to me by email and we can look at some alternate options! My email is lgilbert@backcountry.com.
