I recieved this parka as a gift from my climbing buddy this year. I have only used it for about two week's so far, But I already love it. I love the stylye and the usefulnes's. This will be on all of my climb's this winter and I will also be sporting it around town. The zipper's are water resistat and zip niceley. This parka seems to be a winner so far. I have the blue and black model.

Good Shell
I have this shell jacket, and so far I am pretty pleased with it. I do suffer a little "gaposis" with it because of the high waist cut, but I can manage. It does not seem totally water proof, since in a downpour, the sell tends to wet through, even after several re-treatments of the DWR.
Good design, and well laid out features. the pit zips are a little hard to manipulate with one hand. The hood is a little small to fit over my Petzl Elios helmet. Oh yeah, the neck has this chamois fabric that can get irritatingly wet on rainy days.
