The North Face Men's McMurdo Parka is a down insulated coat that isn't afraid to stand up to winter. It's named after a research station in Antarctica, so we're talkin' brutal and bitter winter weather. The lightweight goose down traps heat like a pro, the windproof and waterproof shell keeps even the nastiest winter weather at bay, and the long parka profile and relaxed fit make it easy to layer over whatever else you have on.

DWR tech

Durable Water Repellent
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

The North Face DryVent

The North Face DryVent
Dryvent™ fabrics are engineered to be fully waterproof, windproof and breathable. The outer face of the textile is treated with a durable water repellant finish that helps form droplets and repel water from the surface. Each multi layered textile is engineered to allow water vapor to pass through from the inside to the outside.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm Jacket but Zipper is seriously badly designed This is an extremely warm jacket which holds really well from warmth perspective in the New England winter. I literally start to sweat if the temperature in above 40 degrees. However, the zipper is seriously badly designed. First of all it does not start from all the way down (rather 4 inches from the bottom) which makes it harder to find. Secondly, putting the zipper sides together is such a hassle it takes a couple of minutes to just get it together and zip up. It gets extremely frustrating after a while to waste time on it. I am seriously contemplating returning it to North Face for this reason alone. or take it to a tailor to fix this issue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2014 McMurdo Parka I bought a new McMurdo parka to replace one that I had bought 3 years ago and was severely torn. My old McMurdo parka had a two way zipper to open and close the parka. The new one has only a one way zipper. A parka of this caliber, price and especially coming from The North Face has to have a two way zipper for when you have to kneel down or get in or out of a transport vehicle. The Hyvent material was also thinner than my old McMurdo parka. The thinner material is acceptable if the parka still keeps the heat in and can be considered an improvement. However, the lack of a two way zipper in unforgivable. Raise the price if you have too, but keep the product the same.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from McMurdo Parka Zipper This parka requires a large heavy duty Zipper set. It is impossible to insert the tiny male part of zipper into double slider within ten minutes, only after pulling the coat above waist under direct vision. North Face cut costs, sewed in a zipper which belongs on a light sweater. There is no zip tab to assist inserting the left side into the sliders which must line up Perfectly before the zipper can close. Closing the snaps first only makes it worse because you cannot see bottom of the zipper. Sleeves do not have snow guards. Coat useless as a substitute for a ski jacket on a very cold day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm parka for -10 c when it is not windy I've had the jacket (previous model) for 10 years and it has served me well in -10 c conditions when it is not windy. I live in Helsinki where in the winter it is usually very windy and wet with sleet (due to the proximity of the ocean) rather than arctic "cold". In these types of windy/wet conditions (when the temperature is around 0 c) the jacket does not really work as the wind gets through (especially through the cuffs). The jacket is also fairly bulky compared to other similar parkas. I would recommend the jacket to someone who lives in a cold area (Canada, Northern Scandinavia etc.) in a more continental climate as opposed to a wet ocean climate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Make Tall sizes PLEASE!!! 6'4" 215, long arms I wanted a parka for the polar vortex that seem to come to Chicago every winter. And this was the one I eanted to try out. Listen it's not that I didn't like it, it just didn't fit well on my arms. I'm 6'4" and 215 pounds. So I get it that I'm not your average 5' 8" 140 pound guy. But please for the love of God make tall sizes. I put the coat on and it fit great on the chest and length area, XL is what I got. First thing I did after putting on the coat was put my arms straight out in front of me. It recessed about 5 inches from my palm. So it was an immediate no. I even did the simulation of shoveling snow and it was just the same as far as riding up my arm. Disappointed but not surprised. Still love the brand

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good but could easily be imrpoved It's a nice coat but I was surprised that there is only one interior storage pocket and it's very small. My wallet barely fits in there. A large phone won't fit in there. There should either be two pockets or they should make this pocket bigger. Also, the pulls on the zippers are falling off and I've only had the coat for a few weeks. The metal pulls on the zippers are very small, so without the string pulls it's hard to open the pockets. This is a pretty big flaw. On the plus side, the coat is very warm and I've received a couple of compliments on the style of the coat. It's also favorably priced against similar parkas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almosts prefect execpt why no 2 way zipper??? Warm and good quality build. And the "not enough insulation in the arm area" issue already been addressed by NF in 2014 ver. Today Toronto temp was -20c, and I have to stay outdoor for almost an hour, this jacket and a 100 lvl fleece as a mid layer able to keep my body warm. And my only complaint is why no 2 way zipper? MCMURDO PARKA is a long jacket, and I just don't understand why the designer took away the 2 way zipper??? Or North Face want to cut cost??? It is so inconvenience when you need to get in/ out from car; take something from your pant's pocket OR as simple as bent down to pick up something on the floor.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Parka I needed a coat during the Chicago winter as I walk to the train and to the office. I got this just in time for the early snow and bitter cold already hitting us in November. I would not have made it if I didn't have such a warm coat. I will say it was unclear from the images whether the coat would be bulky or more form fitting since some pictures show it one way and others the other way. I wish it was a little less bulky, but when you are out shoveling snow or walking in the snow and wind it doesn't matter. All that matters is if it keeps me warm and dry. It does its job. I hope to have it for years to come.
