Description

Clinging to the windswept north face of Forbidden Peak your mind meanders to images of Alaska, the Alps, even the Karakoram. Sometimes the North Cascades feels like those far away ranges that demand the warmth and function of the Patagonia Das Parka. This definitive belay parka delivers exactly what the serious storm-battling alpinist needs: how did I get here idiot-proof warmth. Cold, wet and admittedly a little scared, this is no way to traverse life, but fortunately the Das Parka takes some of the edge off. Simply put its saving your butt by sheding snow, blocking the wind, and offering the best-in-class, high-loft hollow-fiber PrimaLoft® One (170-g) insulation that stays warm, even when wet. Its light yet tough polyester quad-ripstop shell fabric that is treated with a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish, is reinforced at the shoulders, elbows and hips for exceptional abrasion resistance as you worm around in your compromised position. Snugging up its adjustable, helmet-compatible hood and tall collar to protect your face, your partner finally anchors the move that releases you from the biter bite of the belay ledge. Warming your digits in the insulated handwarmer pockets, your reach into the zippered chest pocket to retrieve your drying gloves, and check that the inside mesh pockets and 2-way zip are secure before launching your final attack. Sometimes extraordinary circumstances require the superior performance of the Patagonia Das Parka.

Just as advertised...
March 12, 2012

No bells and whistles on this jacket, its very minimalist. Love the storage pouch it comes with. It runs large if your going to use it as a regular parka, but if you layer up(fleece, softshell, and shell) it fits just right. Very light and compressable. Got this to assist me on a Mt.Washington winter hike.

Best synthetic insulation for cold weather
July 22, 2011

This jacket is great for anything in cold weather, from climbing to belaying to bivouacking. It's roomy enough to accommodate several layers of clothing underneath. Stuff sack helps compress it to a reasonable size for packing. It's also easy to wash and dry. If I had to buy another heavy-duty parka, I wouldn't hesitate to get another DAS.

Toasty Jacket
January 07, 2011

This Das Parka is one of the warmest jackets that I own. Patagonia is by far my favorite brand when it comes to outerwear. Their prices are a bit high, but well worth the money if your looking for durability and high quality. Still not sure exactly what they put in their jackets to make them so warm and windproof, but it is phenomenal. If your looking for a jacket to keep you nice and toasty in weather 30 degrees and below - you can't go wrong with the Das Parka. Amazing product.

Impressed so far
January 14, 2012

I've only had my DAS parka for a few days but have been out in the cold with it and I'd like to say a few things about it: 1) I'm 5'9" and about 175 lbs. I ordered the medium and wow is it huge on me. Very unexpected even though I knew they are oversized. I considered returning it for the small but decided to keep it as the drawcord at the bottom pulls tight enough to keep it from hanging loosely and letting warm air out. It is sized just right to throw on over a big fleece, a goretex AND it still doesn't look too silly all by itself over a Tshirt. 2) The quality of construction seems immpecible, something I expect from Patagonia being a pretty loyal user for almost 20 years. 3) It is warm but not crazy warm like my North Face Himilayan Parka. I'd say its about as warm as my Patagonia down hoodie (which is very thin and light) but not as warm as a medium to thick down jacket. That said I live in B.C. where winters are cold and wet and I've seen what a combination of sweat and heavy wet snow does to down - renders it useless in minutues....that's why I bought the DAS. I've already found that at 0 celcius (32F) that its a bit cold to wear with just a shirt underneath. Throw a fleece on underneath and it feels so much warmer. 4) The hood is the best part. It is simply amazing. I'll never buy another jacket again without a hood. The hood is so large that your head dissapears into is silky warmth. I've only had my DAS for a week but I love it already and will be wearing it faithfully for the next few years I am sure. This Patagonia piece is a classic and I hope they always sell it so that in 10 years when this one is worn out I can get another.

Excellent warm jacket
September 27, 2010

Just what I was looking for. This jacket is incredibly warm and comfortable and was able to keep me feeling good in a -20C freezer with a couple layers underneath. I look forward to getting the chance to test this in Antarctica this year, but I'm sure it will hold up just as well. Everyone seems to agree that the DAS is one of the premier insulated jackets on the market and I have to echo that sentiment. Beware that the jacket does run large. I'm a 5'9" guy with a slim build and I tried on a medium at a local retailer and found it to be pretty huge (long in the body/arms as well as excessively baggy). I ordered the small from Altrec and it fits perfectly. There's still room for several base and mid layers underneath with full range of motion. It also fits very well under my goretex shell. I got the bali blue and found that I really like the colors. I wasn't sure when ordering, but it's really not as bright, shiny, or annoying as I thought it may be! If you are spending time outside in frigid conditions, this is the jacket for you.

I really like this jacket
April 05, 2012

The first time I ever wore this jacket, I was ice climbing with a friend. For weight purposes, we decided to share a belay jacket. She had a Das, so we used hers. I was REALL?Y impressed at how warm this jacket was. Even with sloppy ice and some running water, I was warm (I run cold) This was on sale here, and I pulled the trigger. This is true to size. VERY PLEASED

Warm and Durable
December 25, 2012

I've had this jacket for a year now. Living in the northeast sometimes wet protection is needed even in winter, down can fail. The DAS is super warm, packable, and works when damp. It packs down close to the size of my old 800 fill jacket, and is nearly as light. The cut of the jacket is relaxed so you can where it during belay over everything else you have on. At 5'10 185lbs the medium fits generously over everything I'm wearing. If you're wearing this just as an around town jacket over a single layer, size down.

Best coat I have ever owned
January 10, 2011

I was looking for a warm coat because I am cold natured. This coat is amazing. When I first received it I wondered just how warm it could be. It was very thin and there was something inside me that said a coat this thin can't possibly be very warm. I live in Texas and I know it doesn't get as cold compared to where some people live, but it gets cold to me. This weekend it got down in to the low 20's with snow. I went out side in my Das Parka with just a t-shirt under to play in the snow with my boys, and it was awesome. I got so hot I had to unzip it. Now my three boys want one as well. I love how a coat this light weight can be so warm.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

I may have developed a high expectation of Patagonia, so I have to say this particular style could and should be improved by Patagonia. Its too loose, poor quality and feels very ordinary. I was not very impressed.

Exceptional Warmth !!!
January 09, 2013

Everybody knows this jacket. The Patagonia DAS. The Belay jacket that all other belay jackets are measured against. Primaloft One synthetic insulation (considered the best synthetic insulation by many outdoor experts). This jacket is warm and comfortable to wear. Tested this jacket in cold, rainy weather with no shell and was perfectly fine. I purchased the medium size of this jacket, large size was too baggy. I will mainly use this under a Gore-tex shell for kayak fishing in the winter months. Important to choose correct size for purpose of jacket. If using as the outer layer insulation over EVERYTHING you got on including you waterproof shell and other insulation, get your normal size. If using as a inner layer underneath your shell, I recommend going down one size. For reference, I'm 6'1", 185lbs athletic build.

This is a great jacket for cold winter. The warmth of this jacket feels good, and very lightweight. The color I got was Continental Blue, and I really like this color. This jacket will satisfy everyone.

Love my Das Parka! It's incredibly warm and super lightweight; perfect for cold weather belays or simply sitting around the camp fire in frigid conditions. Either way, this Patagonia jacket will serve you quite well in winter.

Patagonia Das Parka
January 16, 2012

I wanted a jacket that was warm but lightweight, and that is exactly what I got in the Das Parka. The quality of construction is typical Patagonia excellence. I like to think of this jacket as a piece of art that you can wear, and I may live in it until spring. Additionally, it is supposed to shed light rain (haven't tried it in a downpour yet), and I got it on sale. I chose the Deep Mango color for the visibility factor. My main concern is that a ramble through blackberry brambles might tear it to shreds. Also, the retail cost is not inconsequential.

Used the jacket while hiking in the mountains. Great for use on breaks, keeps the warmth in and very light to carry. Didn't want to wear it hiking downhill because of the tree limbs which could snag it. Overall a nice warm jacket you can use on the trail and in your everyday life.

Great Jacket!
February 12, 2011

DAS parka has been a great jacket! In zero degree weather it has kept me very comfortable with just a tshirt underneath. The hood is a great addition to have and works great. The only complaints I have are the zipper which is a bit clumsy to zip up and the sinch cord which pops out at a number of different places and often finds its way into your face or prevents you from using the zipper. The sizes run a bit big. I am 5'10 160 lbs and a medium is still a bit bulky (yet the small is too small). If you're inbetween, unless you're playing around in -50 degree weather I would go smaller as there isn't much of a need for underlayers. Great jacket. Although expensive, you get what you pay for.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use

Excellent Warmth
December 25, 2008

This jacket, or parka, is ideal for frigid cold conditions, (wind and rain inclusive), for it provides lightweight, warmth in a terrific design that is comfortable and not puffy. The main zipper slides smoothly and quickly to the zip garage that has a very smart length--right under your nose. The hood is as well-designed as the jacket. This jacket is warmer, and the hood more comfortable and with greater coverage than the Micro-Puff Hooded Jacket. Wear it below zero temp's with a Capilene 1, and you will not be cold.

This was a gift for my husband, and it has been very well received. Great in the cold. Warm yet very light. Hood works very well over helmet. Jacket is good looking,true to size and is a good buy.
