The North Face Men's Mcmurdo Parka
What a great jacket!
If you've always wanted a fur hooded parka as I have, then this is the jacket for you. It ticks all the boxes - stylish, colourful, super efficient, plenty of pocket space and when it comes to the nitty gritty of keeping you warm, I doubt there is a better coat.

Best coat ever
Well named, this Parker is warm and totally wind proof. I found it a very good fit and lighter than I expected. I thoroughly recommend it if it's cold and windy

Smart looking parka that does the job.
I have not felt uncomfortly hot wearing this parka but I do not think you realise how warm it keeps you until you take it off.Some products look different when you see them for real after viewing them on-line but this looks just as good!

A great piece of clothing
Although I bought this in Leeds I live in the far SW of Ireland on the edge of the Atlantic and the Wild Atlantic Way and believe me, in the winter months it can get very wet and wild. I also have to spend a lot of time standing around out doors in Farmer's Markets and this coat is just brilliant. It's extremely warm thanks to the down filling and (so far) 100% waterproof. It does then job its intended to perfectly. If the design time were to take notes the only thing I'd change would be to add a fleece lining to the chest hand pockets. There's such a lining in the lower pockets but not in the chest ones and it would help to keep the hands warmer in those pockets as well. With regards to price, there are cheaper parkas out there, even from TNF but you only get what you pay for and the extra price for the down fill rather than a synthetic fill is, in my opinion, worth it.

I bought the coat for walking my dogs, and I have never owned a quilted waterproof coat before, as I've always had Berghaus with internal fleece. This coat is pure performance. To give everyone an idea what the coat is like, you only need to wear a t-shirt under the coat and it was -2 and I actually started sweating. I have also been out in torrential rain, and again performance is unbelievable.
Only downside, is the fur type outer of hood when wet. Just take it off when raining.
Overall, coat is unbelievable and worth the money

Love my parka
An excellent parka with at lot of very good features.
I love the many pockets (could have done with an additional inner pocket as this would have allowed to have my iPhone in one and my vallet in another. Alternatively to have a "pass through" for the headset cable from one of the other pockets, in order to hide the cable under the jacket.
Also I would have loved if the zipper was of the type that also allow to open upwards, which can be of benefit if/when sitting Down.
I love the fact that the parka is that warm that I do not yet have had the need to also put on a sweater or other extra clothing to keep me warm.
