The new DAS Insulated Parka is a definitive winter belay jacket for the worst weather and the coldest conditions. With a true parka cut, up to 170 grams of PrimaLoft Gold, and a ripstop nylon face fabric, this is a jacket that strikes an excellent balance between light weight, durability and class-leading warmth.

Patagonia says:

The ultimate all-conditions belay parka for bone-chilling days and unplanned bivies. The DAS® Parka uses PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Eco with Cross Core™ technology that incorporates aerogel to provide the soft and compressible feel of down with the crucial warm-when-wet performance of synthetic. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

Patagonia's revived DAS Insulated Parka is the ultimate in synthetic insulation – providing exceptional warmth when wet at an impressively low weight. This is the larger, warmer jacket in the range, with a longer, parka-style cut that makes it ideal for icy belays and frigid mornings. It uses a higher quantity of a higher quality insulation than the DAS Light, and is also a much larger fit due to its intended use over multiple layers. A size down is recommended for more everyday use.

The Pertex Endurance shell efficiently sheds water, wind and snow, and traps the heat provided by the PrimaLoft Gold insulation where it is needed most. The insulation in the DAS Parka is cleverly zoned to provide more warmth to key areas without restricting the range of motion, and the infusion of the NASA-developed aerogel insulation maintains warmth when soaked and keeps the jacket cosy and soft – often underrated characteristics when looking for an insulated jacket. The DAS Parka has all the features you would expect from a jacket at this pricepoint: hem adjustment integrated into the hand pockets, internal drop pockets for larger items, adjustable hood with stiffened brim, and nicely elasticated cuffs for ease of use. All-in-all the DAS Parka is a class-leading jacket, guaranteed to keep you safe and warm when the weather turns vengeful.
