The North Face Men's Mcmurdo Parka
Sub-freezing temperatures, bone-chilling winds and blizzards with 2 feet of visibility. Just another day in the life of The North Face Men's McMurdo Parka. This bad boy can handle brutal weather like a champ thanks to a durable, waterproof breathable 2-layer HyVent shell wrapped around heat retaining 550-fill goose down insulation. Seal out the frigid wind when you close up the Velcro cuffs and cinch up the drawcords at the waist and hem. This winter parka has a full zip front with a storm flap and is long enough to reach your upper thigh, but not so long that it impedes walking or shoveling snow. Three interior pockets offer secure storage for gloves, iPod and a place to keep your water bottle or a thermos. Seven exterior pockets can keep everything else and add to the classic, outdoorsy style. A removable hood is trimmed with detachable faux fur to complete the Antarctica-worthy package. You can have the warmth of a puffy down jacket and the weather protection of a winter coat with The North Face McMurdo Parka for men.

North Face Men's McMurdo Parka
I needed to replace a very good down jacket that had begun to moult. After much looking I found the North Face McMurdo Parka with exactly the features I wanted. Well made, water repellant, with snaps over zipper to close (allowing a quick on-and-off to get the paper on cold mornings!), oversized pockets, and removable hood (with faux fur, no less, that is separately removable!), this was the jacket I wanted. I bought it in XXL but found that I needed XL. altrec was great; they provided an RMA without question and sent the smaller jacket which was perfect. The cost of returning the first jacket was well-worth it, and the price of the jacket so reasonable that I could easily justify the expense to myself.

Excellent waterproofing for wet snow. Highly windproof and warm for Chicago winds along the lakefront. Love all those inner pockets to secure personal items. I am 185lbs and 5' 10". Normally a North Face large is fine. This is a little bigger than normal for a North Face jacket.
