User Review: The North Face Men's McMurdo Parka
Price Paid: $289 US
Drawstring ends were sewn inside hidden pockets within the jacket itself. Who does this? I had to have a professional seamstress unstitch the jacket, install two grommets and have the chest-height draw strings exposed. I am not kidding. Kind of a joke for a supposed "high-end company".
I'm still waiting on "North Face" for their explanation why this occurred.
