First I bought the regular Expedition Parka in XL and it was too big so I never used it but thanks to Backcountry.com exceptional return policy and customer service I finally exchanged it for the PBI Expedition Parka in Large. I'm 6'1 and 220 lbs with broad sholders and big chest. Large fits me fine, if needed I can use layers underneath and the arms length is perfect for me.
I have only used it in temps around 15-20 degrees and it kept me toasty all the time. No cold spots so far. Outer layer seem to be tough enough to withstand some rough scrapes and does not absorb the moisture from a little snow or rain (haven't tried it in heavy snow/rain).
Beats the TNF McMurdo even though this parka is a little bigger. I realise TNF is alot cheaper but I am very happy with the extra bucks spent because this is clearly a better product and suits my needs.
Very well made Canadian Jacket.
I didn't wear this in cold weather because bought it last month-in fall, but seems really warm.
I can't stand only 5 minutes with this hot jacket in the room temparature.
The very thing you have to know is about the size.
It runs 1-2 size big.
I'm 6'/180lb, normally wear 44 or L in outer(I have wide shoulder and chest, long arms) but M in this jacket.
Good luck with this great jacket!
If you are similar size with me but normal shoulder and arms, S size will be better.
Moreover, the service of backcountry.com is best!!!
I really want one of these jackets - the women's version is more expensive, and mens jackets are always made better and more rugged. I am going to Afghanistan again and sure hope I get one before I ship out - need a mens XS or S
Old world quality. The ultimate warm coat Zippers are heavy duty. A worthy cause.
