User Review: The North Face Himalayan Parka
Price Paid: $500
This jacket is hands down the most expensive jacket I've ever bought. It's also the warmest.
I've worn this in negative degree weather, without any layers underneath, and it still felt like a furnace.
The monkey hand gloves are awesome. They allow you to take your hands out of your gloves without your hands freezing and the neck zippers up far enough to keep heat from escaping through the collar.
My only advice to a would be buyer is to buy it for what it was intended to be used for; frigid outdoor temperatures. It's not the kind of coat you wear to the mall.
As far as complaints about it...my only complaint is that it doesn't come in women's sizes. My wife would love one.
