Excellent parkaReview by Portlandia
Wow. Received this parka today and the quality of it was amazing. Usually, the marketing is better than when I receive something. This is one of my prized possessions. It seems that it will be very warm. I am 6’4” and it covers me well in an XL. Great purchase. Thank you, Feathered Friends. (Posted on 7/31/2018)
WarmReview by Irene
I run cold on a regular basis and found a tough time finding a warm parka. This was recommended to me and I used it for the first time 2 weeks ago, during sleet, wind while climbing Cayambe and it kept me comfortable and warm. Also is pretty weather resistant! I highly recommend it. I am 5’5 and 125lbs and got the XS, lil roomy but comfortable! (Posted on 7/13/2018)
Good Alaska Range parkaReview by Peter
Just got back from a few weeks on Denali while using this parka. The fit of the parka is perfect (I sized up in order to be able to throw on over other layers), and the new hood design is great (was never a fan of the floppy velcro collars). The dual zipper makes it noticeably warmer when sitting around camp. As far as I'm concerned, this might be the very best choice for Denali or the other high peaks in the range. That said, there are two things that were an issue with the parka:
- For some reason, zipper pulls weren't added to the pocket zippers, making accessing the pockets with gloves on impossible. This was easily solved by adding some small diameter cord to the zipper however.
- The front waterproof zipper is pretty stubborn. It can occasionally take a few minutes to get it engaged and zipped, which can suck when you're cold and tired. It seemed to improve as it got broken in, but never got to the point where I would call it good. It may take even more use to get fully broken in, we'll see.

Overall this is a great fitting, very warm parka, and am very glad I had it along. I would absolutely recommend it for anyone planning on spending time in the cold and high places of the world. (Posted on 6/8/2018)
Excellent ParkaReview by Greg Chaney
This a very well made expedition quality parka. The hood is particularly well designed very warm with good visibility. The parka has a nice fit with excellent loft. (Posted on 1/23/2018)
Amazing upgrade from the Frontpoint and IcefallReview by Michael
Received my Khumbu parka a couple days ago 3 weeks ahead of the anticipated delivery! Great surprise! This thing is incredible. I briefly had an Icefall and a Volant a few years ago but didn’t love the detachable hood and it’s closure system so I returned them both. The new Khumbu hood design is exactly what I was hoping for from Feathered Friends. Time to go test it in the high country! Put this hood on the Volant and the Hooded Helios! (Posted on 1/13/2018)
