For thriving—not just surviving—in the most extreme places on Earth, our Grade VII Down Parka represents years of building, testing and refining by our team of designers and ambassadors, resulting in a belay-and-bivy parka worthy of the most visionary lines on the most intimidating peaks. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.
Light yet durable 100% recycled nylon shell with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish paired with a glued-baffle construction on arms, shoulders and chest maximize wet-weather protection. Fully baffled construction and differentially cut shell and lining keep down lofted and eliminate cold spots; elasticized stitch on lining at side panels pulls jacket in toward the body. Alpine helmet‒compatible, baffled hood has a single-pull drawcord and high-loft draft collar; two-way center-front Vislon® zipper is backed with kissing draft tubes. Exterior pockets: two large chest pockets with zipper garages, and two large front pockets with stiffened welts for easy access; all pockets have down insulation on both sides of pocket bag to retain warmth when pockets are open. Interior pockets: two catch-all pockets on each side of the front torso with stretch mesh for draining snowmelt. Elasticized stitch at the cuff openings sit gently on the wrists, locking in heat and allowing the sleeves to be easily pulled down over gloves or pushed up. Hem cord routes through mini snowskirt and is located well above hem to cinch toward body without draft spots; unique construction allows hem-cord adjustability inside parka or inside interior pocket to avoid hanging loops that can snag; Fair Trade Certified™ sewn. Made in Vietnam.
