Grade VII Down Parka

Grade VII Down Parka

Patagonia

$899.00

Ultra-warm differentially-cut fully baffled construction at an unbelievable weight, the Patagonia Grade VII Parka is designed to offer the highest warmth-to-weight ratio of any jacket we sell. This ultra-light expedition parka is perfect for lightening your load on peaks such as Aconcagua, Volcanoes of Ecuador, or anywhere you need expedition-caliber warmth at a fraction of the weight of a traditional parka. 

  • Light yet durable 100% nylon shell fabrics maximize wet-weather protection with a light DWR (durable water repellent) finish throughout, and glued-baffle construction on arms, shoulders and chest
  • Fully baffled construction and differentially cut shell and liner keep down lofted and eliminate cold spots; elasticized stitch on liner at side panels pulls jacket into the body
  • Alpine helmet–compatible, baffled hood has a single-pull drawcord and high-loft draft collar; two-way center-front Vislon® zipper is backed with kissing draft tubes
  • Exterior pockets: two large chest pockets with zipper garages, and two large front pockets with stiffened welts for easy access; all pockets have down insulation on both sides of pocket bag to retain warmth when pockets are open
  • Interior pockets: two catch-all pockets on each side of the front torso have stretch mesh for draining snowmelt; right-rear interior pocket has small stash pocket with keeper-loop for retaining self-fabric stuffsack
  • Elasticized stitch at the cuff opening sits gently on the wrist, locking in heat and allowing the sleeve to be easily pulled down over gloves, or pushed up
  • Hem cord routes through mini snowskirt and is located well above hem to cinch toward body without draft spots; unique construction allows hem-cord adjustability inside parka or inside interior pocket to avoid hanging loops that can snag

Weight: 675 g (23.8 oz)

Note: This jacket is for anyone who needs max warmth, but it’s built on our men’s fit block. For the best fit, we suggest women buy one size smaller than usual.

  • Gear Review: Fozzils Bowls

    By Mike Hawkins It has been a long day – one of the most demanding climbing days you have ever experienced. Your legs are wrecked. Your back is sore and you have small bruises on your hips from your hipbelt. You have sunscreen caked into every nook and cranny, but even that didn’t keep you […]

  • Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
