Show Description

The Cold Forge Parka is a packable portable furnace that seals in heat. The water-resistant insulation blends down and synthetics to offer compressible warmth that retains heat when it's damp. It's cut to hip length for maximum coverage, with a packable profile that won't fill up your whole pack. Great for cold, shady belay sessions and high ridgelines that lead to great powder turns.

  • Shell is Pertex Microlight treated with water-shedding DWR.
  • Insulation is PrimaLoft Gold, and 70% down blend with 30% PrimaLoft that compresses like down and retains warmth when wet.
  • Sewn-through construction with deep, widely spaced baffles.
  • Lining is DWR treated to protect the insulation.
  • Adjustable helmet compatible hood.
  • Zippered chest pocket, 2 internal drop in storage pockets, zippered hand pockets.
  • Stretch gusseted cuffs fit over gloves.
  • Drawcord hem cinches around hips.
