I have bought this product 3 times

I use this all around in the cold climate. Super light, comfortable, and really warm. Only complaint is that the shell rips easily on a rouge branch or door appendage but that's my fault for not being aware of these types of dangers. This is the 3rd time buying this jacket. Usually lasts me 2 to 3 winters until my wife tells me it looks ratty. Scrunching up into the provided "scrunch" pocket into an 8" by 3" pillow has come in handy many times as a pillow or just to pack it away.

Great Parka!

I have found this to be an exemplary parka, especially for its light weight, warmth, and compressibility / packability. It is soft and comfortable. There are similar parkas with a more element-resisting shell but most are less flexible and less versatile than this design. I highly recommend this parka.

Really warm

Much warmer than my last winter jacket. Made with typical OR quality and attention to detail. I'm so happy I got this parka for a New England winter.

Warm Enough for Aconcagua

I used this parka and the OR Foray rain jacket to block the wind on Aconcagua in December and never got cold.

Great jacket and sizing

The jacket is very warm and fits great. I'm 6ft tall and 200lbs and bought a size Large. It'll fit thin layers underneath it for me, which is all I'll need.

Almost too warm for anything above 15F / -10 C

I purchased this for the winter of 2023 - living in the mountains of Central Oregon and have found its basically bombproof as far as cold. 6'0" and 170 LBs and the Medium is a good fit. I could add a light layer underneath to extend the temperature range, but haven't experienced cold enough weather to need that. The high neck is great to keep out the wind, and the hood adjusts well. I haven't tried it in wet weather, but again I wouldn't wear if it was raining. It's simply too warm for that. I have two other Parka's that are very warm, including an LL Bean Maine Wardens parka. But this is what I reach for when the conditions are brutal and I know I'm going to be outside for an extended period of time.

Just what I was looking for

A really warm, bomber jacket was needed and this one fits the bill perfectly. The pockets are all warm and secure, the hood is great, all seems well made. There's more winter to come this year (we all hope) so there will be more opportunities to test it more later, but for now it looks like exactly what was needed.

Fluffy goodness

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Fluffy, warm and comfortable. Used it in the rain and it was water resistant for a couple hours. Long sleeves and a big hood, keep you covered up.
