What size do I need for an Alaskan winter Maybe Denali base camp I am 6 foot 2 inches and a 47 inch chest and at 66 YO I am starting to feel the cold To wear over base layers + ThermalPro fleece and a Patagonia DAS in XL as my mid-layers DAS is a few seasons old now and about as warm as a new Nanopuff

Your probably looking for an XXL which gives you a chest of 48-52in and would give you ample room for the base layers. it does say the jacket fits slightly large, but the XL runs from 44-46in and may be a good fit without baselayers, but tight with baselayers

What's the compressed size of this? I'm comparing it to the Feathered Friends rock and ice parka, which compresses to 7.5" x 15", or 17L for medium

Truthfully., I don't have any physical dimensions for you, but I can say that when I have it in the stuff sack, it completely fills out the sleeping back compartment of my Osprey Atmos 65 backpack. And at 539 gram of 800 fill power down, you'll be plenty warm for sure!

What would be a woman's equivalent? I am going on a photo expedition in Iceland in February… Lots of standing around and I need to keep warm. Thanks!

I was stationed in Iceland for a year. You don't need this much warmth. Iceland's climate is moderated by the gulf stream which flows around it. Do the research on the temperatures year round. If you were going to Greenland, then you would need a coat like this.

I was stationed in Iceland for two years and no it doesn't get super cold there like northern Alaska, but the wind chill get's crazy. I would have loved a jacket like this when I was there. Not sure what size you will need though. You might contact the seller.

This actually a nice jacket for Iceland when you do photo tours. I own and operate a expedition company in Iceland and we specialize in photo tours. In the interior of Iceland we often se -10 og -20 Celsius an add on the wind chill when you are out hunting the auroras for hours this is the jacket to go for... I have one and use it often! Br Arild

Is this jacket helmet compatible?
June 5, 2015
Yes. I have an older one from 2011/2012 and am able to wear both my Petzl Meteor and CAMP Space 2.0 helmets with it comfortably.

Does this parka come with a stuff/compression sack? If not, what size sack would you suggest?
November 20, 2015
I just recieved my Absolute Zero parka and yes it does come when a sack. It's a bit bigger than it needs to be though, so you'll probably want to find something smaller to save room in your pack. (It's about the size of my 15 degree sleeping bag with the included sack, and it can definitely be compressed more.)

I have the nitrous 800 fill down jacket and the exposure shell. Together they weigh around 47 oz. Would they worn together be as warm as this absolute zero jacket which has 800 fill down and weighs 49 oz? The absolute zero has an insulated hood whereas the nitrous and exposure combination hood is not insulated. Is this the only difference?
November 11, 2014
This jacket is way warmer than the Nitrous. The shell weight has no insulating properties. A jacket like this would go over your nitrous and exposure shell. I used a down sweater, micro puff, then a shell, and had this jacket for the extreme cold.

Does this AbsoluteZero have hand pockets...
Does this AbsoluteZero have hand pockets in addition to chest pockets? It is described in other website that there are handpockets. Is this product produced this year? Or is it from years before? Why do you have more discount than others?
December 29, 2012
yes it does, you can even see the pocket in the pic of the orange one.. you can see the top of a pocket! if you are going to order one, be mindful of the short arm length MHW are doing this year.. its stupid!
December 30, 2012
and yes that's this years color's. Backcountry just do good sales on certain items at all different times. "they have to stay ahead of the rest!"
