Warm, but the hood...
By zooglea November 13, 2008
This coat is long enough to keep your upper legs covered and warm without hindering movement. A gaggle of goose feathers are packed into the liner keeping warmth in when there is no warmth without (worn down to -30). However, when the wind blows, so does the hood. It stays in place, and does not come off even in gale force torrents, but wind manages to sneak its way into the hood.
One valuable aspect of a parka is a hood that is deep enough to shelter your face from a crosswind. Insulated well but lacking in depth the hood allows air to funnel around your face and down into your parka. A great attribute if you were trying to stay cool, on a cold winter day.
If the wind isn't blowing hard this is a very warm parka, the numerous pockets are great, and the velcro storm flap along the zipper is a life/time saver (especially since the zipper failed on mine after a season).
