Patagonia Das Parka 2006-present
Patagonia Men's DAS Parka (Fall 2007) The DAS Parka by Patagonia is our quintessential belay and bivy piece. The bombproof DAS, with its high-loft synthetic insulation, stays warm even when wet, sheds snow, and blocks wind. We've improved the fit and upgraded the shell fabric to a polyester quad ripstop that's extremely tough, durable, and light in weight. Fabric reinforcements on shoulders, elbows and hip panels increase durability. An Optipull hood fits over helmets, and the high collar insulates your face. Finer points: insulated handwarmer pockets, a zippered chest pocket, inside mesh pockets for drying gloves and a two-way front zip that lets you see your belay device. Treated with Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) to shed moisture. Stuff sack included.Features: Weight: 822 g. (29 oz.)
