    Essential warmth for shivery locales.

    Arm yourself against blasts of arctic air and raging blizzards this winter with the quintessential cold-weather protection of The North Face Men's McMurdo Hooded Down Parka III. Packing warmth when the city turns to a frozen pop in the midst of single-digit temps, the McMurdo Hooded Down Parka III features 550-fill down insulation for high-loft warmth. Not only does the down insulation maintain high levels of warmth in the frigid cold, but it brings a luxuriously padded feel to your everyday commute and around-town errands.

    When snowstorms barrel down on your city, the DryVent 2-layer membrane seals out wind-driven snow squalls from soaking through and compromising your warmth. Classic parka styling sits a bit longer to keep you warm and dry, especially in downright nasty winter conditions. The zip-off hood provides greater versatility for widely variable conditions, and it's packing an emergency gaiter for sealing out nasty weather.

    Perfection wrapped in down

    • Fit: Runs large

    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    Warm? If by warm you mean wanting to walk through an arctic tundra, prancing as if it was summer in the cool grass then yes, yes it is. I wore a short sleeve shirt and this coat and was warm well into the teens. Do you love the outdoors? How could you... You don't have this jacket yet.

    I bought this coat wanting to go anywhere anytime and never worry about the cold. It did just that. Also, go a size smaller or it'll look like your wrapped in the drapes hanging from your ceiling.

    Best Jacket I Ever Bought For...

    This is the best jacket I ever bought for $50. Got it on sale big time at a close out rack at a big sports store chain. AWESOME!!! I saw it the day before for $100 but didn't pull the trigger and then the next day it was $50 -incredible.

    perfect!

    this is a fantastic parka! definitely one of the warmest, especially for the money, about 1/2 of the cost of the antarctic parka's you see on the science channels and almost as warm according to reviews i've read on the internet.

    today it's 4 deg F, wind chill of -16 at noon (north east wisconsin). comes down to about mid-thigh (i'm 6'3

    Warm jacket without the bulk

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    I received this as a "gift" from my wife - I picked it out myself :-).

    Pros: WARM. Have worn it in NY weather this winter (temps in the teens in F) and was surprised at how warm it was. I only had a long sleeved t-shirt and this coat, and was out in the snow without feeling anything. I was almost sweating, but that may have been a result of the outdoor activity rather than the coat.
    STYLISH. I also bought the Gotham II, which I also liked but for different reasons. This one is longer, and looks a bit more refined. Also, you get the warmth without looking like a "Michelin man". I have even worn it over my suit for work, instead of the traditional wool overcoat, when the temps were in the single digits.
    OTHER. Face mask built in, waterproof, down, detachable hood/trim, multiple exterior pockets

    Cons: Yes, the sleeves aren't ribbed, coming instead with velcro - which makes them less snug - but that can be adjusted relatively easily. I also found the zipper was a bit clumsy to use - because it is a double-zipper system which doesn't begin at the bottom of the coat (which extends about six inches lower than the bottom of the zipper). That is probably my biggest gripe, though I have to say the extra length adds to the more stylish look on this coat.

    Sizing - I thought the jacket ran a bit large. I am usually between L and XL in many stores (XL usually, particularly if the cut is slimmer). The XL was way too big for me here. The L fits perfectly. Backcountry customer service was simply awesome in helping me sort through my questions to get the right one.

    Overall - MY NEW FAVORITE WINTER COAT

    Lives up to the name

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    McMurdo is the name of the research station in Antarctica. And while I've never been there, I imagine I'd want this jacket with me while I was there.
    The waterproof shell keeps the down inside nice and dry so I have stayed nice and warm even during heavy snowfall and moderate rain. Even though it is only 550 fill down, I think that the waterproof and wind-proofness of the jacket help in keeping heat in so I'm as warm as I would imagine being in a much more expensive jacket. I really appreciate all the pockets as well!

    The one downside is that I wish the arms were a little longer.

    Awesome Jacket

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

    I sent my son to live in Alaska in his coat. He absolutely loves it. No complaints of it being cold when the temp is below zero. Nothing but love for this parka!!!

    Nice jacket, but no cuffs on the sleeves

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XXL
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 231lbs

    I apologize for my English, I write through a translator.

    - Jacket runs small. Available there is a jacket from Marmot, Columbia all in size XL. At my height 188cm, weight 105 kg, and the broad shoulders of the jacket in size XL TNF narrow in the shoulders and short sleeves. I ordered in size XXL

    - As already mentioned above - no cuffs on the sleeves. Very strange and cold. There are Velcro, but they keep the heat only if you wear very thick gloves.

    - Zipper is very thin, it seems cheap.

    I walked on the street for 2 hours at a temperature -13C, at the bottom there was a thin, lightweight cotton longsleeve and fleece scarf. It was warm and comfortable.

    Nice jacket, but no cuffs on the sleeves

    Good one, but not superb

    I have rather bad english guys, but I'll try my best =)) This jacket is well made and it is good looking. Nothing sticks out. But for me there are some cons.
    1) There are no knit cuffs. I really don't get why. They aren't so expencive but very usefull. These Velcro on sleeves are small and don't seal out drafts properly.
    2) This jacket is warm till about -15 C. Even at -15 C I feel my shoulders and my arms are getting cold. Mcmurdo 2 is supposed to be warm parka with 550 FP (70% down), but it's not so warm as it looks like.
    3) I would add some zipper on that face mask so you can detach it and wash it separately from hood. And of course, one more inner pocket would be great.

    Perfect for any occasion.

    This is my warmest jacket. I hate bulky clothing but this jacket is nicely built and confortable enough to be worn all day. It is roomier than I expected but it allows for additional layering.

    This jacket friggin rocks!

    Just bought this jacket anticipating La Nina's arrival this season. The fit is nice when you pull the elastic cords inside the chest pockets and at the bottom of the jacket hem. Not only does it form better to the body, but also traps the heat in. My favorite feature is the emergency face neck gaiter/face mask thing attached to the hood. Big bottom pockets big enough to stuff your large mittens in the winter. I've got long arms so the sleeves go 1-2 inches up my arm when I reach my arms in front of me, otherwise, it is a good fit. I am typically a medium t-shirt and shirt. I'm also a climber with a larger back and to my surprise I do not feel constrained in the jacket when crossing my arms in front of me.

    This jacket friggin rocks!

    Worth it!!!

    Extremely great jacket, especially for $100 less than retail. Warm, comfortable, and it looks great!!

    Not good in the North

    I freeze with this jacket in the arms and sometimes in the chest. I purchased this for Toronto weather which averages -20 to -30 C (-4F to -20F) in the winter. I wear many layers underneath in order to stay warm.

    Excellent Jacket

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large

    Very roomy , with nice detachable hood and the color I pick is very rare being the camouflage. I purchase this jacket on summer time , so have not have the chance to use it , fit is very good , allow you layer and move your arms freely , I have other Mc Murdo version a military olive green and I love the fit.

    Best winter jacket ever!

    I love this jacket!

    I always read a ton of reviews before to purchase something for me and this was not the exception, I read that the other guys with almost the same height and weight were having issues with the size, I ordered a Large and it fits well.

    *Pros*

    * It's a big jacket, but when the temperature drops you will want to wear this jacket, that's for sure.
    * I tested it in NYC with temperatures lower than 20 F and I was always warm and toasty without any base layer. So I guess you can layer it for lower temperatures.
    * The pockets are large and convenient.
    * The Jacket brings an internal face-mask attached to the hood, this makes it perfect for cold wind.

    *Cons*

    * There is just one inner pocket. It would be great to have at least 2.
