I recently purchased this high quality 3/4 length coat at the REI store in Paramus. It has an amazing fit and is extremely warm in an outside temperature of 18 degrees. I highly recommend this excellent garment.

This parka is one of the BEST I have ever owned. I've been thru rain that literally poured on me in Washington state, and weathered -30F in the Midwest and Eastern US with this parka.

Its zip-out down liner allows for the use of the parka by itself or with another zip-in liner with a similar zipper configuration (i.e. Eddie Bauer's EBTEK PolarTec jacket) for more moderate winter weather.

It's packability with the down liner is sometimes difficult, but without the liners, it packs very flat. Even still, I'd recommend this to anyone without hesitation.

Fabric: Gore-Tex/Supplex Ripstop Nylon
Fill: Zip-Out Removable 550 Goose Down
Price Paid: $295 USD

This parka is the best I have ever owned. I owned the original Traid Parka circa 1988 and it was good, but the original Elements waterproofing did not hold up well. The latest build of this parka has an improved coating that has the fix for the original issue.

This parka is waterproof, easy to tote and warm. Highly recommended for anyone needing a good heavy parka.

Price Paid: $250
