McMurdo Parka

rated 5 of 5 stars Went to Iceland in February 2015. This parka was absolutely fantastic, could not feel cold at all with just a tee shirt on underneath. Temperature in Rekyav was -8° and snowing, no chill felt. Went out of town to Gullfoss waterfalls, temperature was -15° and still warm in this jacket. We went on snowmobile for about an hour and temperature was measured at -22°. This jacket coupled with North Face Montana Gloves was faultless. I actually sweated. Well done, North Face. Would recommend this parka… Full review

Himalayan Parka

rated 3 of 5 stars Decent jacket, but needs some fine tuning. The arms are the biggest let down, need more baffles to keep down in place. Live in the far north Canada, -40° is way too common for my liking, and the jacket is pretty good except for the arms. It's way too warm to wear in -20°, unless you're just sitting around. If you're walking -30° to 40°. Not good for strenuous activity like skiing or biking, waaaaay too hot. When the wind is howling it gets in through the bottom. An easy fix would be a powder… Full review

McMurdo Parka

rated 3 of 5 stars Had to add velcro around the neck for the hood since the zipper is just in the middle, which leaves two holes where you get cold. Also had to put a wire in the hood to hold it up. The hood is made to fit a helmet underneath, but without helmet the hood gets into your eyes. There could be a mesh pocket inside for a water bottle! Full review

Chilkats

rated 1 of 5 stars My boots also fell apart in the same place. I've had these boots for a few years. Hardly wear them. Have always worn L.L. Bean boots, but a few years ago I ran into these and thought I'd try them. Didn't have the need to use them a lot until this winter. Got them out of my closet sitting next to my other boots. Second day wearing them they fell apart where the leather meets the rubber. Never had a pair of boots do this. I've read other complaints about this and North Face says it's a storage issue… Full review

Paramount Convertible Pant

rated 4 of 5 stars Practical and comfortable, these pants excell in a variety of conditions. Got a pair of these a few years back, and still love them. I have done many backpacking and day hike trips in them, and they are still my "go to" pants in a variety of conditions. Some other reviewers have complained about the fit of these, but I find that they fit me perfectly. Some pants and shorts I've had in the past, have a tendency to be pushed down by my pack hipbelt, but these stay in place nicely, all day long. The… Full review
