The North Face McMurdo Parka
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Your partner thought it would be fun to spend a few seasons in Alaska, and you agreed to go along with this plan. Keep your boy warm until the end of sunless days in The North Face Boys' McMurdo Down Parka. Waterproof, breathable, and stuffed with cozy warm 550-fill down, this jacket tolerates long, cold winters. The jacket itself is made from lightweight and durable nylon, and then treated with HyVent technology. HyVent consists of a tripartite, multi-layer polyurethane coating that provides waterproof breathable protection. Taped seams eliminate routes of entry for water and wind, giving your son a heavy-duty winter parka without needle-sized vulnerabilities. The placket covering the center zipper stays shut via hook-and-loop closures, closing off one of the last remaining avenues for wind and rain to penetrate. Inside, 550-fill down insulation creates an air-pocket barricade, preventing warm air from escaping and cold air from entering. An insulated hood with removable faux-fur trim protects your son against cold snow and wind, especially if he's wearing the toque you knitted for his last birthday. Dual-entry compartment pockets hold his gloves and the uneaten bits of carrots from his lunch. Two alpine chest pockets give you a place to stash a couple of bucks, and him space to stow baseball cards or a cell phone. Adjustable cuffs keep out wind and snow, but only if they are wrapped snug around his wrists.
