    Details

    Settle in.

    When your partner is leading a pitch and you're left exposed and stationary, find shelter in the Outdoor Research Men's Perch Belay Insulated Parka. Built to fit over all your layers, this jacket is constructed with a durable Pertex Endurance shell which resists water to keep you dry and comfortable. Staggered down-like PrimaLoft Gold insulation traps heat to keep you warm while you wait, and breathes to keep you from overheating when you move.

    The Perch Belay Parka comes equipped with a hood that cinches down over your climbing helmet for additional weather protection, while a draft tube around the face keeps cold air from sneaking into the jacket. A variety of pockets keep essentials secure. The jacket also stuffs into a large interior pocket, so it can clip to your harness when you lead the next climb.

    Toasty like a marshmallow

    The photo is from snowboarding but I wore the Perch Belay hiking and in some pretty cold conditions. It was near 0 this day and I was toasty warm sitting on the lift with no mid layer beneath it, just a base layer and the jacket. The fit was great and my movement wasn't resricted in any way. Plenty of pockets and the hood did fit over a helmet, although I'm not wearing one in this photo. Snow and ice didn't stick at all to the jacket after hours of riding knee deep powder. highly recommended.

    Great Jacket

    Yet another great product from OR! I have been in some seriously cold temps as low as single digits (F) while just sitting at camp too, and have yet to be cold in this jacket. The fit is a little bit larger, which is perfect for layering underneath. I wouldn't say it's large enough to size up at all, I typically wear a L in shirts/ jackets and the L here works great. It even has a storage pocket to pack it up when not in use.



    I would definitely recommend this for any mountaineering, ice climbing, or even just for staying warm! Feel free to reach directly out to me with any questions about this jacket or mountaineering at all. I'm always happy to help out.

    Great Jacket

    The Warmest Cloud I Have Ever Worn

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    This jacket is like wearing a heated cloud of joy and happiness. Seriously, this thing is soft, and keeps you incredibly warm. I took this jacket up on a trip in the Sawtooths (for those cold mornings in the yurt) and it could not have performed better. It was warm, incredibly comfortable, and pretty dang waterproof with that Pertex Endruance coating on the outside. If you are in the market for a good belay/over-shell down jacket, this one is the one for you!

    Great for mountaineering

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

    I used it for climbing several Ecuador volcanoes above 19k feet and it always kept me warm. The insulation works pretty well. The helmet hood has a lot of room, and the rigid piece on top makes it easy to be handled even with ski gloves. If you are planning to wear it as part of a layering system, be sure to buy a size greater than your normal size.

    Great Parka

    For years I used the OR Chaos Jacket as my summit/bad weather layer that went over everything. I loved that jacket, but after losing a ton of weight, I had to get a new parka as I was swimming in the Chaos.

    I have only used this jacket for a few months, but I can assure you that it is really warm and wind/water resistant. I have mostly used it at summits/during breaks, but a week back I exposed this jacket to a long period of freezing rain and gusting winds at elevation and it held up very well.

    The jacket's quality is high (as you would expect from OR) and includes elastic cuffs, two internal shove-it pockets. I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs and the fit is good, plenty of room to layer while not being too big.

    I'll always love my Chaos Jacket, but I have been impressed with the Perch Belay so far. If I had to criticize it at all, it would be that the jacket is a bit heavy, but for a synthetic parka this warm and affordable, I feel the weight is pretty reasonable. I tend to shed ounces in other parts of my gear makeup, so I don't mind carrying an extra few ounces for a piece I know I am going to rely on in the worst situations.

    Great Parka

    Nice and warm!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    My husband loves this jacket! He's worn it in freezing temps down to about 25 degrees F. He says he'd probably be fine in lower temps too. It's super warm and water beads up on the shell. He wore it in a wet snow and it just kept beading off. I put in on to see how it felt, and oh boy was I jealous. So nice and toasty! The quality is top notch and the fit looked great on him, too. He usually wears a large in tops and he was a large in this jacket.
