Brian Quinifwrote a review of Patagonia Jackson Glacier Down Parka - Men's on January 11, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Thie parka is very warm (I've used it down to around 0F so far) but also looks quite sharp, with what I would call a bit more "socially acceptable" look. Previously I used to wear a bright orange Fitzroy parka around town...that one is just as warm or warmer (and lighter) but is extremely loud. Back to performance, though: the Jackson parka is much longer, coming down to mid thigh and also has a thicker/more durable shell. This one will definitely hold up to a lot more regular wear abuse, and I will save my Fitzroy for climbing pursuits when counting grams is more important. I recently discovered that my Jackson parka will fit over a suit jacket no problem, so now I'm using it as my overcoat even on more formal occasions: it's just too warm and cozy to leave home.
