THE PARKA FOR MOUNTAIN CLIMBING AND EXTREME CONDIT
October 28, 2011
THE ULTIMATE PARKA - FOR ULTIMATE WARMTH: The Jacket is the top of the line parka from Marmot! Here is why it is so great: 1) 20 ounces of down - Keeps you incredibly warm! 2) Baffled Construction - No sewn though seams. No cold spots. 3) Waterproof!! 4) Wind Resistant In short, this is the parka that will never let you down! It is THE PARKA for mountaineering, or the most wickedly cold days in all other freezing conditions!!!Pros: Build quality, Cons: Poor quality

I like this coat, nicely designed and nicely made. It is waterproof, so it is pretty good for snowy areas. It feels a bit bulky. But overall, this is a great coat.Pros: Great design, Build quality

The Whitehorse parka is well constructed and fits me. I'm 5'10" and weigh about 200 lbs.. The Marmot large fits me perfectly - the sleeves are long enough and the parka fits correctly in the shoulders and around the waist. . The construction is excellent - the pockets are large enough for leashes, etc, The hood is very large and its very high, it keeps me warm without a beanie, and would fit over a helmet, however the jacket is too warm for skiing except for the most insanely windy, wet and cold days (when I probably wouldn't ski anyway). The membrane fabric is water and wind repellent; a big plus for wet sticky snows and cold spring and fall winds. The long 'parka' length means my butt and thighs don't get 'burned' by the cold; we live in a very cold place and I was getting 'skin burns' through my pants on walks. Not any more. I use the jacket mainly for driving, walking, yard chores and around town.
Very warm michelin man

Purchased Marmot's Whitehorse Parka and north face mcmurdo at same time. Marmot was by far the one I kept. Very comfy fabric not stiff like NF. Has been best jacket for freezing dog walking and snow blowing. Yes it does have michelin man appearance but warmth for weight can not be beat. Someone mention low pockets and will agree but always wearing gloves with this jacket anyways so no biggie to me.Pros: Build quality, Great value
Warm, wind/waterproof and very well made
January 30, 2010
I wanted a waterproof insulated parka for everyday wear in very cold New England winters. Most had ripstop shells that I didn't think would stand up over time. I narrowed my choices to the Mountain Hardwear Downtown and the Whitehorse. I liked the former's looks but the fit was very restrictive, esp. around the collar. The Whitehorse has a generous fit and is very well made. Only criticisms are minor: 1) the collar lacks a microfleece lining; 2) the handwarmer pockets are placed a little too low; and 3) the sleeves are a bit puffy, creating a slight "Michelin Tire Man" look. But overall, an excellent product that fulfills its intended purpose.

I like this down jacket. that is a great down jacket. very warm and waterproof,but not flexible enough. and it is little big for me(178cm, 160BL). If you are taller than 180cm and bigger than me, i recommend this item.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value
The Awesome Marmot Whitehorse Parka You Could Retire In!
September 17, 2009
I needed a big, black winter coat that covers your head and rear and Altrec had a huge selection. I never heard of Altrec or the Marmot Whitehorse Parka before, but you can't find a nice coat selection up here in Milwaukee for some reason. Anyway, I ordered the wrong color and the next day I called back and this really awesome rep switched my order during processing and got the right one out to me. I asked my buddy Dan about Marmot as this thing was in transit and he said they are an old company with very good quality. I hoped so because I don't want to get ripped off by a young company with bad quality. Well, this thing arrived a day early, and let me tell you...SO IMPRESSED! It reminds me of the simple yet effective coats they used to wear in the 50's, but that was before my time. The best part-- this thing is awesome for lifting your arms up! Whatever this "angel wing movement is that Marmot patented, it works like a genuine charm! You can reach for things and not have the coat ride up! The coat is of very sturdy construction with two zippers in case one breaks, and, you guessed it Velcro to seal the deal! I thought that the coat, even though it was black, had a slight blue tint to it. This could be because it just needs to sit in the closet for a few months. I'm very proud to say that I got a Marmot Whitehorse Parka. I had three of my envious friends try it on, and even my indifferent fiance, and they all were blown away. I highly recommend getting a Marmot Whitehorse Parka from Altrec, or anything from Altrec. They are awesome. Another thing is this parka is very bulky and roomy, but that's what keeps you warm! This multi-layer zippered-in coat stuff is not only a fashion disease, but it's less warm and ironically makes you sweat more. Take it from me, it's worth spending over $200 for this coat for the bragging rights alone. Plus, it comes in a box and sealed in a bag, and hasn't been sitting on the rack for months in some department store with stitches pulled out, rips, scuffs, and kool aid stains. I'll have this coat for many years, I'm sure. -Brandon
Need warmth? Get this!

Marmot products are excellent, but you have to really have to try them out before you buy them because their fit is a little inconsistent. The Whitehorse Parka is no exception. Excellent warmth characteristics, waterproof outer shell, and very comfortable. But it is perhaps one size bigger. I'm a "heathy" built guy and I wear a large size. This one in size Large was LARGE! But I would still keep it because I tend to use fleece pullover for added insulatoin. I was expecting this because I've tried a large Yukon and I would think the sizing would be the same. Some have issues with the lower pockets, but if you wear gloves, it would not matter. The hood keeps my head warm and dry. Overall, it's an excellent jacket.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value, Cons: inconsistent size.
Nice jacket, but too big for me
December 01, 2012
The jacket is very nice. It is very warm, and with a very good quality. However, it is too big for me. (189cm height, 90kg weight) I would recommend it highly to those who can fit its big size!Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value
Oversized & Awkward Pockets
December 12, 2011
This jackets specs sell the product, but I now know why it was on sale. The jacket is giant. I normally wear a large as I measure as a 43. The tag in the jacket reads large, but I don't believe it. The armpit area in sleeves is huge. I could fit two of my arms in there. The jacket was designed but never tried-on for functionality. The angle and placement of the hand warmer pockets is totally weird. The angle of the pockets makes it hard for you to insert your hands. But I can't even reach them as they are located at the bottom of the jacket. So this jacket is for knuckle draggers. The jacket is super warm, and the fabric seems to be pretty waterproof. Not sure if it is the right jacket for me.Pros: Build quality, Performance, warm, Cons: Bad design
Good jacket but too big
January 03, 2011
Way too big. I ordered size Medium for my usual-size-large husband, based on other reviews. The jacket was still way too big! Medium size is like an extra large. So we returned it and got another coat alltogether. If you can get the right size, and you need a very heavy duty nanook-of-the-north jacket, then this one could be great.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Cons: way too big
Altrec delivered this product quickly and it was a great parka
January 23, 2010
I've bought a number of Marmot products. They are true to size and are quality made. This Whitehorse Parka is the one to buy if you want excellent protection against the harshest that winter can dish out. It is waterproof and windproof. I will definitely keep you warm in a storm I would recommend both Marmot and Altrec

I decided to purchase this coat for my brother as a gift, although he's 6ft tall the fit was great! Its extremely warm, and comfortable. He's never really worn a coat because he felt bulky and confined, but he just loved this jacket! The adjustable arm easily made it a great sale with him as well. I will be purchasing one for my husband for a Christmas gift.Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value
Excellect warmth, materials, This is best of breed !

Four hours using a snow blower while 15 inches of snow fell and not a spot of dampness in the Jacket. Using the hood and enclosing flaps, I was warm as toast. The wind, sometimes gusting to 35 mph, made moving the snow very hard, but I never felt the cold. later that week we had temps in the single digits, with moderate winds, this jacket is the best down jacket I've ever owned. My old LL Bean jacket, usually soaked through in heavy snow, and with wind you always felt the cold coming through the jacket weave. You can stand with the wind in your face and your chest and shoulders never feel the cold. I wore a tee shirt one day while out with my labrador, only my face got cold; Excellent product, shell seems to take traveling through the brush well; but a bit overly large. I am 5'9", 255 and purchased the extra large. A large would have been fine; I have plenty of room for a heavy wool shirt under the jacket. Overall, stitching, zippers, etc. and materials get an A+. Jacket is worth every penny.
