For thriving—not just surviving—in the most extreme places on Earth, the Grade VII Down Parka represents years of building, testing and refining among our brain trust of designers and ambassadors, resulting in a belay-and-bivy parka worthy of the most visionary lines on the most intimidating peaks.
This jacket is for anyone who needs max warmth, but it’s built on our men’s fit block. For the best fit, we suggest women buy one size smaller than usual.
Built for the biggest, coldest mountains in the world, the Grade VII Down Parka represents years of building, testing and refining among our designers and ambassadors. At belays and bivies—any time you stop—the parka keeps your fire burning with its precise, fully baffled construction (laminated on the arms, shoulders and chest) and differentially cut shell and liner, which trap your heat with 800-fill-power Advanced Global Traceable Down (goose down certified by NSF International, traced from parent farm to apparel factory to help ensure that the birds are not force-fed or live-plucked).
The design ensures that the loft stays in place, eliminating cold spots, regardless of severity of use, and elasticized stitching on the side panels of the liner hug the jacket into the body. The nylon ripstop shell is more robust in the sides and back, and has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish throughout. The helmet-compatible, baffled hood has a single-pull drawcord and a high-loft draft collar; the two-way center-front zipper is backed with draft tubes to block cold air from sneaking through.
Plenty of pockets keep you sorted when hell freezes over: Double chest pockets and double handwarmer pockets have down on both sides of the pocket bags to retain warmth when open, and four interior catch-all pockets (two on each side) have stretch mesh for draining snow melt (the back-right interior pocket has a hidden stash tube with keeper-loop for retaining the self-fabric stuffsack).
The elasticized-stitch cuff openings sit gently on the wrist, locking in heat but also allowing the sleeve to be easily pulled down over gloves, or pushed up at brew stops. The hem drawcord routes through the mini snowskirt several inches above the hem, pulling everything inward without draft spots and eliminating any hanging loops that can snag on gear and rocks.
Light yet durable 100% nylon shell fabrics maximize wet-weather protection with a light DWR (durable water repellent) finish throughout, and glued-baffle construction on arms, shoulders and chest
