User Review: The North Face Men's McMurdo Parka
Fill: Down (550 tog)
Price Paid: £220 (England is expensive!)
What a jacket! I climbed Snowdon in Wales, and the temperature was around -15/20, and I was only wearing a t-shirt underneath but still didn't feel the cold. The only gripe with jacket is that it's really not breathable and probably not too good for hiking as you sweat loads. The other problem from this is that it starts to smell sweaty after a while. But apart from that, it is reassuring I will always feel snug and warm without loads of annoying clothes underneath my jacket no matter what the English winter throws at me. Oh yeh, make sure you re-apply proofing after each season as mine started to seap snow slightly and it got a bit damp.
