Before you take that March trip to Denali National Park, prepare your future Arctic explorer for the cold with The North Face McMurdo Boys' Down Parka. When he's out chasing after caribou or trying to lay eyes on a ptarmigan, the McMurdo's 550-fill down insulation and hood with removable faux-fur trim will keep him nice and cozy, and the waterproof and breathable DryVent membrane will keep him dry even if he works up a sweat or accidentally spills hot cocoa on himself. All the McMurdo's seams are fully taped to prevent moisture from sneaking in through the cracks, and a soft brushed collar to make the arctic air a little less biting. He can stash his collection of pemmican and elk jerky in the four external pockets before he goes out on a hike, too, so you wont have to deal with any more hangry children, which can really put a damper on your wintertime plans.

Of course, the McMurdo's 550-fill down insulation is some of the best in the business at insulation; not even a Minnesota winter will find its way through that much fluffy down. Tons of pockets provide storage for candy bars, a music player, and lunch money.
