The North Face Men's McMurdo Parka
I got this parka in the sale. It's a great coat extremely well made with a lifetime guarantee to reassure you further. Sizing is a bit out, oversized so you might find you need to drop a size from yoyr other coats. Everything about the product says quality and you can see that design is a major feature. Everything is there for a purpose and serves it's purpose well. Love it. This is my Christmas present from my beloved wife and I will have to work hard to find something that she loves as much as I love the Mcmurdo parka.

Quality jacket - the warmest I've ever owned
This is a top quality jacket. It's like wearing a quilt. It's pricey, but it will last for years and it definitely keeps out the cold. It is a generous fit.

new model coat lighter and longer than old mcmurdo parka
must admit i'm slightly disappointed with this new mcmurdo parka by one thing
unlike the previous mcmurdo it only has a one way front zipper as opposed to the previous model which was a two way zipper
and as the coat is slightly longer this is quite restrictive if you need to sit down so in my eyes this is a step backwards
also the zip is a lot smaller in size and less robust so only time will tell if it lasts
other than that the construction seems good
and as it's lighter than the previous model because the outer hy vent material is thinner and less stiff it feels less bulky when wearing
but only time will tell if it is as robust

The warmest coat, ever.......
Without doubt this is the warmest coat I have ever owned. To be honest, this years winter has been so mild, we have barely had a frost in Kent, the McMurdo Parka is surplus to requirements. I've worn it three times and each time returned from the walk wet with sweat, despite only wearing a T shirt underneath, I even had to undo the coat and take my hat off in an effort to keep cool!!
So beware, this coat is really meant for cold, very cold conditions, which in other years we have endured, and probably will in the next couple of months, I do hope so because I really want to wear this coat and show it off.
I bought a red one so I would be visible when walking on the country lanes in the dark, much to the amusement of my family who think I'm too old to be wearing a bright red coat, but if you buy a dark colour you end up wearing a high viz vest, so I'm happy with my choice.
This parka is superbly constructed, it's got all the features that could possibly be required, it is generous in sizing, but the extra large is the right fit for me, I'm a 46 inch chest, I tried a large on at a local well known outdoor shop, and it was a tad tight, just remember that you will not need many base layers, at least not in the UK.
Snow and Rock provided an excellent service, they were out of stock, but let me know and soon located a coat and sent it to me, well packaged, cheap postage £2.95. Their price was the best on the net, buy one and avoid the fake McMurdos on Ebay, this is the real McCoy.

pockets are amazing
proper quality coat, pockets are amazing, although this is a heavy coat you wouldn't expect anything else due to is down filling. alaso very fashionable at the moment. The Snow and rock team were great and their price match policy is no quible.

Great pockets positions, super warm when it really matters but the natural materials means no sweating issues.
