Before you take that March trip to Denali National Park, prepare your Arctic-explorer-in-training for the cold with The North Face McMurdo Boys' Down Parka. When he's out chasing after polar bears 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 HyVent two-layer 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.

The North Face Boy's McMurdo Parka works hard to keep your fast-growing human tornado warm despite his galloping, falling, and rolling around face-first in the snow. Rugged nylon fabric stands up to abuse without cooking your kid-it's breathable and waterproof. On the really cold days, cinch down the removable insulated hood complete with faux-fur trim. 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.
