I love this jacket. Simple as that.


The high pockets make it look like it would work well with a climbing harness. The heaviest part looks like the price tag, wow!

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Now, even in burly alpine conditions, you can rely on the warmth and comfort that only down offers: The Encapsil? Down Belay Parka, an uncommonly beautiful work of design, engineering and function, is the best down parka ever made. And it's the first of its kind - a 100% independently baffled, differentially cut parka without a single shortcut or ?cheat.? Weighing in just north of 18 ounces (518 grams), it's insulated with Patagonia's proprietary, plasma-treated, water-repellent Encapsil? down that carries an unprecedented fill-power of 1000. The result is an incredibly warm parka for its light weight.
