Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

At a weight savings of about 67.6 tons the Men's Columbia Melting Point Parka will deliver almost the protection of an M1 A2 Abrams tank, but in a much more portable and stylish package. One of Columbia's famous three-in-one parkas, this system will protect you with cutting edge technology no matter the situation. The shell features Omni-Dry ultrabreathable waterproof three layer protection for better than Gore-Tex breathability and superior waterproofness. The inner jacket sports both an Omni-Shield advanced water and stain repellency treatment, and Omni-Heat thermal reflective technology and insulating layer. The insulation has the highest heat retention of any synthetic in the industry and the reflective liner boosts heat retention another 20% over traditional liners. Combined, the jackets have a laundry list of features including articulated elbows, waterproof zippered pockets and breathable panels. When you need unrivaled performance and features galore, zip up the Melting Point Parka for men from Columbia and out maneuver the elements.
