I live in Boston which isn't in the Arctic Circle but we do have some cold weather. Some winters, this coat does not come out of the closet but when it gets real cold 15F and below this is the parka to have. Mine is from 1990 and is from the era when Woolrich had a couple of goose down farms in America and is all goose down.
Last year and on Ebay, I bought the Woolrich Arctic Jacket which is the shorter version and 550 duck down. With my 12 year old playing hockey, it is the best.
Great product made for the people that worked the Alaska Pipeline, it's a shame that they do not make it any longer.
There are a lot of people that live in the vicinity of the Woolrich Factory outlet store that bought a bunch of these jackets and parkas and are now offering for sale on ebay.
