    Your plummeting mercury does not concern the Fitz Roy.

    Remember the last time you literally froze to death sitting at a exposed belay while your partner spent three hours piecing together the last pitch? How about when you had to bivy in that howling ridgetop wind? The last traumatically arctic trip to the bar? Kiss 'em all goodbye and say hello to the Patagonia Fitz Roy Men's Hooded Down Parka. It's ultra-lofty 800-fill goose down will keep you warm in the most frigid conditions, but don't feel bad for the geese—Patagonia used only fully traceable down from geese that were never force-fed or live-plucked. The superlight 20D nylon shell and nylon ripstop shoulders prevent tearing, and the shoulders are specially designed with a high-sheen Y-shaped yarn to increase the efficacy of the Fitz Roy's DWR coating. 

    Thought it's seriously useful as a an everyday cold-weather jacket, the Fitz Roy was designed for use in the alpine, and has technical features to prove it, like high hand pockets, a baffled helmet-compatible hood with a single-pull adjustment, and a drop-tail hem for extra coverage. It even comes with a self-fabric stuff sack, so you can pack it up and clip it to your harness if things ever warm up. The internal drop-in pocket holds, well, whatever you put in it, and the internal draft tubes keep cold air from creeping in through the zipper and ruining your toasty-warm party.

    WARM, Comfortable, Lightweight

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: medium

    This parka keeps you cold in subzero weather in the backcountry at night. It is very comfy, and compresses down to a very small size compared to what it is when you are wearing it. Be careful around camp fires. I built a fire a few nights back while winter camping and was very afraid an ember might put a hole in it. It's something that's very nice and you might not want to wear it to a bond fire.

    Probably Overkill

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

    I bought this primarily for waiting at the bus stop with my kid on cold mid-western mornings and for wearing around town. It is warm - like moderate activity in 20 degree weather will probably make you sweat in it warm. I feel like you could probably survive a sub-zero overnight and keep most of your extremities if you were wearing this. If you are planning on hanging out in freezing temperatures and not moving around a lot - this is what you are looking for. Quality is top notch - I have not seen a single piece of down poking out anywhere on this - unlike every other down garment I have ever owned.

    Backcountry Portable Space Heater

    • Size Bought: Women's medium

    I had been on the hunt for a super light and also super warm layer to bring on backpacking expeditions and hut trips. I needed a step up in warmth from my Arc'teryx Cerium LT and ended up choosing the Patagonia Fitz Roy over the Arc'teryx Cerium SV/Ceres parkas for the price as well as fit.

    The Fitz Roy has a beautifully functional fit, allowing for a few layers beneath it without feeling like the Michelin man. The hood fits well over a helmet, and the baffle at the back of the collar helps keep you super toasty.

    The lightweight and compressibility of the parka makes it an easy addition to any pack to ensure warmth in any condition.

    I'm 5'6" and about 140#, usually a 6-8 and the women's medium fits splendidly.

    Light, not as warm as anticipated.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: L

    This parks is almost unbelievably light, but it's not as warm as I would have expected. Hiking in temperatures of around 0F, (with a longsleeve cotton rugby shirt, underneath), it was plenty warm as long as the breeze was still. But even a light breeze caused a noticeable loss of effectiveness, especially across the chest, and shoulders. Not cold, really, but you could feel the difference.
    I have since used the parka with a light shell over it, at even colder temperatures, with a decided ground blizzard going. It was perfect; the wind and wind-driven ice crystals didn't exist. Probably another layer underneath would help, too, but the windproof shell made a relatively huge difference. Just so you know.
    I _will_ comment that I have an ancient Eddie Bauer "expedition" down parka that blows this one away as far as weatherproof/warm. Of course it weighs five times as much, too ;-)

    Fitz Roy rules!

      Patagonia once again has advanced the state of warm + light. Ok, let me digress. I am 68 year old retiree who walks every day in northern Vermont. Fitz Roy, to me, is but a feather. When the box arrived from the good folks at backcountry dot com I thought it must be a mixup because the carton was so light. Well it wasn't a mixup. It was Patagonia stewards who'd stitched together an excellent garment. Looks good on and is super warm. Highly recommend this parka. And buying it from backcountry who backs up all their wares. I weigh 200, stand 5'10" and bought an XL which is perfect for me as I like room to spare.

      Who needs a cabin?

        You can take a few steps back from the fire, because this puffy is all you need to keep you warm. I love how big and puffy it is! And it's as light as a feather (get it?). The fabric is surprisingly resilient, and Patagonia included a stuff sack for compact storage. NEAT!

        Fits large.

        I'm Sure it's awesome in the right size I got a size large which I usually wears and it was huge on me. Returned it before using it. Love Patagonias warranty I've sent a few things back to them and never had any issue whatsoever. When they say ironclad they mean it. I'm 5 9 175 pounds.

        Man the guy below me, nailed it to a T. Putting this on is like being hugged by the auto climate control in your car. It's almost perfect in the sense that I've never really been too hot or too cold regardless of what I've had on underneath. Under periods of lots of movement, sure you might over heat if you run hot. I usually don't though, but I am also not using this during heavy exercise. More so for at the belay station, on the summit, during a food/water break, or back at camp. It is very compressible and extremely light for the warmth it gives and I was very glad I brought it up Mt Whitney. With the windchill it was easily below zero and this thing did its job and kept me warm. It does fit a little large, so if you're looking at this for around town or as an only layer, I'd probably size down. If you're looking for an insulated over coat (over your shell), then buying your normal size will still accommodate the layers underneath. You definitely won't regret this coat, it is warm, compressible, and warm.

        Removeable Furnace for the Mountains

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small

        Picture having a portable heater in your pack. Thats what this jacket feels like when you go from days shivering at the belay to throwing this jacket on. From getting gear ready at the trailhead, belaying your partner in the freezing cold, drinking beer outside at the end of the day, a pillow...this jacket is perfect. Light, packable, and everything I ever expected out of a down belay jacket. Fits perfectly over my outer shell for easy on and off in the alpine. One of the few garments I've owned that feel perfect in every way.

        Does the job!

        • Size Bought: large

        Very warm, packs down super small, perfect for winter backpacking. Fully baffled so there are no cold spots anywhere. Warmest jacket for the weight that I have ever worn. Love it! I got the large so it fits over everything else.


        • Size Bought: Small

        Wanted something a little warmer than my hi-loft down sweater, this delivers that. Just a light layer and this jacket is good down to the teens/single digits. Purchased to wear around town and got a small. If I was using for an expedition I might size up to make sure I can fit other layers underneath!

        Too warm most of the time

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large

        I picked this up last year as a cosmetic 2nd from the local Patagonia outlet and only wish I could use it more. It's warmth-to-weight ratio is astounding and wearing it feels like you're wearing nothing at all while keeping you almost too warm. As any down parka should, this thing packs down to almost nothing, making it easy to throw in the pack for long days in the BC or any overnight trip. I still keep my DAS Parka around in case things get wet, but if it's wet snow or liquid precip, it's too warm for either of these jackets anyway. My only wish is that it didn't get so warm every day here in Tahoe during the winter. Above 20-25 degrees and this jacket is just too warm, so I wear it at night but have to switch it out during the day. Back home in my native New England though, we know a thing or two about real winters, and this parka would be all you kneed during those brutal arctic cold spells.

        Fit is roomy for a large, but it's spot on for a down parka, as you're typically wearing it over other layers.

        Absurdly warm --the real deal

        • Fit: Runs large

        It is almost scary how warm this jacket is given its light weight. As a native Southerner who lives in the Northeast and enjoys winter sports, this jacket has become almost literally a life saver. From hanging belays in the Canadians Rockies at -25F to quick runs out to the corner store with a tshirt as a base layer, this jacket is my go to when the mercury drops. There are a few important caveats with this jacket: the shell/lining is very lightweight; while I've found it to be surprisingly durable, there is definitely a tradeoff in terms of weight. Try not to snag it on trees and the like. Secondly, anyone in the market for a puffy should be mindful of the effects of moisture on down (vs primaloft or other synthetic). This is a very big/warm down parka that generally comes out when liquid water is not much of a concern, so I think down is the ideal material. I do use synthetics for less lofted puffy jackets.

        The interior pockets on the Fitz Roy parka are nice and large, with room for multiple large water bottles or food. This comes in quite handy in extremely cold temps when keeping your food/fluids from freezing solid is a concern. The hood is plenty large to go over a helmet and several other layers (see photo), but it also cinches down tightly for use without a helmet. I feel like there is about an inch of down keeping my noggin warm when I use it in that manner...much appreciated when I forget a hat!

        Absurdly warm --the real deal

        Thanks for the great review, this was exactly the info I was looking for. Im looking for a warm belay/winter camping parka with a good hood, for use in -20 to 10 degree F weather. Sounds like this would work!

        Do you ever need to put it under a shell when the wind picks up? And if so, can it fit under a shell?

        You would probably need a big shell to fit over this parka. What I would be more likely to do is put it on over my shell, although I don't know that I've ever done that. I have worn it over softshells and lighter puffy jackets quite a lot, though. The combo of this jacket over a couple other layers should do a pretty good job of blocking the wind.
