McMurdo Hooded Down Parka III
Arm yourself against blasts of arctic air and raging blizzards this winter with the quintessential cold-weather protection of The North Face 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.

Only had my coat for a year and one of the zipper teeth has broken off.

Seems durable and warm but...
I’ve worn it twice during early cold here in Boston. The hood is not big/deep enough. This left my head exposed. There are no draw strings so you can’t pull it tight. The removable faux fur is not as plush as it looks and I wasn’t planning to use it. Even with it, it doesn’t do the trick. I tried wearing a hat underneath but the hood basically is unable to do much at that point....

A bit awkward
The size was a lot bigger than expected and the cut is basically a straight rectangle without deviation. The pockets are also strangely placed. I would go at least one size smaller. I ordered a size bigger unknown that it would be so big. Coat was about two sizes too big for me. A large probably would of fit well

Recommend to my worst enemy
After a lot of research I landed on this jacket, and I am very thankful that I pulled the trigger on this purchase! It is warm, comfortable, and provides the quality you expect from TNF. I would buy this again and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this jacket to friends and my worst enemies, because after all, everyone deserves to stay warm in the winter!

Excellent customer service
I purchased a jacket I wasn't happy with and the team at backcountry.com couldn't have been more helpful. They paid for return shipping and gave me some advice on finding the right jacket for me. Extremely professional and courteous, I will definitely shop on this site in the future.

I am a little stocky in the chest and shoulders and the jacket ran a little big in the mid section. I felt like Sponge Bob Square Pants but it will probably fit some well and others not.

Impressed With My First Down Coat
Before I got this in December, I did a lot of research to find the warmest jacket for the money. All reviews pointed me to this parka. Since then, we have had a lot of nasty, cold weather here near Traverse City, Michigan. So far, I have worn it in -22 mornings being totally comfortable. Iâve wore this snowboarding, to my daughterâs ski meets, on my daily commute, snow blowing my driveway, and will wear it ice fishing this weekend. This is too warm to wear inside for extended periods. Iâm 6â1â 200 lbs, and a large fits well, just a bit roomy. I personally donât have much of a problem with the zipper as I had read others mention. It is a double zipper like a sleeping bag, so you can unzip upwards from the bottom - which I have found is handy to take a leak.

Zipper and collar suck
Such a gorgeous jacket and so warm. Tough exterior. I loved it but had to return it because the zipper was absolute garbage. I could never get it zipped. Northface has always given me problems with zippers. I’ve had to send jackets back to have them replaced. The collar is a complete design disaster. Other than that this jacket was perfect I was so disappointed to Return

Finally found a + size coat for my dad
I bought this coat for my father and here is what he has to say: Living in Boise, Idaho, it stays cold for quite a while. This coat is great for my retired life, getting me to the mailbox, church, and from the car during shopping. I like this coat alot and it's 'quiet' (meaning the fabric doesn't crinkle when it's cold)

My husband has this coat and we just moved from Boise. This coat was too warm for him. Anything above 20 f and he is sweating buckets. He couldn't wear this coat there as just not that cold. It is is just right for him in Michigan weather at or below 0.

Love this coat!
This coat is absolutely the best I’ve had! From the pockets in all the right places to the hood that you can customize and right on to how warm this thing is!!

Super warm Parka
Purchased it as a gift and so far he loves the parka. He's mentioned that overall the parka is super warm and he has not had any issues. I thought the chest pocket placement is a little odd, they could have positioned the pockets a little bit lower but my buddy loves it.

Love the McMurdo!
I purchased this as a gift for a friend. This is what he said about the parka: “This parka is fantastic. It’s kept me incredibly warm and dry throughout this winter thus far. The down is incredibly comfortable as well. I haven’t tested it much in the mountains yet, but in freezing and windy temperatures in the city, it’s been great. Even considering that this is a parka, I think it runs on the larger size, like a lot of stuff from The North Face. In most brands, I wear a medium, but the small McMurdo fits me perfectly.”

All good but the hood
Unfortunately the hood on this coat is not of much use in my opinion because it doesnât have cinch down pull cords in the front on each side. So as soon as you get a gust of wind the hood wants to blow off your head and doesnât really provide much protection. I also thought it would be warmer than my Marmot shadow down jacket which only comes down to the waist, but it could be because of the higher down loft.

Works for me!
I was looking for a warm coat. That was my number 1 priority. This coat is warm, but not too warm for me (Missouri winter seasons). Yes, the coat is a little bulky. It is like wearing a down comforter. But that is also what makes it so cozy and warm. I was good to go with an undershirt, and a polo, with this coat in 9 degree temps. Yes, the zipper is a little cumbersome. But you will get used to it. Perhaps, the coat may not be quite as stylish as others, but what I really wanted was a nice warm coat, and that's what this is. I am 6'2", 220lbs and got the XL. It fits just ever so slightly large, but I am good with it. I don't think you are going to find a warmer coat for the money.

IT DOES WORK FOR SEVERE COLD WEATHER.

Well constructed and extremely warm. Goes to mid-thigh for added warmth. Warmest coat I’ve ever owned.

Great Purchase! Fantastic Coat!
Almost talked myself out of this jacket initially based on reading some of the reviews, after purchasing Im glad I didnÃ¢ÂÂt listen to the lower rated ones. I was looking at a Fjallraven or Canadian Goose but kept getting caught up on price. I did some research, I wanted a Parka that extended past my waist so I looked up âwarmest Mens parkaâ, to my surprise the McMurdo was rated second in three trials and 3rd in another one. Can find the links again if needed. It even beat out the three other coats I was looking at that are about $300 more. So I pulled the triggered and got it. First! the only issue I have is with the zipper, being a Parka the coats zipper falls past your waist and itâs a tough angle to get and there is a certain technique to it. Initially it would take me a few tries to get but now I figured out how to get it and have no issues. To me the XL is great, I have a 32 waist so itâ s not tight and routinely wear sweatshirts underneath. It is a Parka, to those reading this and then reading other reviewers I believe you lose some movement because thaÂtâs the type of jacket. Yes itâs tough to lift my arms above my head, but I didnât buy this coat for activities that require that. There are 6 pocket and an interior electionrics pocket with headphone wire opening. Not sure how many more you need. The hood cover my head fine, especially if the pull the cord to tighten in back of hood. Again maybe itâs my liking, but there is no drawstring but have yet to feel wind come the bottom, if you have a big stomach though I could see this happening though. The sleeves for me same size coat are fine, if your looking for active use I would not recommend besides light hiking, daily use or walks. In general Iâm happy with coat, itâs the warmest coat Iâve had.

can you remove the fur trim on the hood?
