Exceptionally warm winter gear is essential when living in a cold climate. That is why The North Face, a company that has been making high-performance outdoor products since 1968, has just released a new heavy-duty parka. It is The North Face Trans Antarctica Expedition Parka, based on a model it made in the 90s when the brand sent an international team to trek the unforgiving miles of Antarctica’s icy terrain on a dogsled. This updated version pays homage to that all-important expedition that explored how climate change affects the world on a global scale.
With four different colorways to choose from, Transantarctic Blue, TNF Black, Red Orange, and Gravity Purple in sizes that range for men in XS to XXL, this jacket is rated as their warmest at a Level 3. The waterproof level is rated at a Level 2, which means it is water-repellant in a relaxed fit. Breathable with a patented DryVent 2 L shell and thigh-length design, this parka is filled with cozy down at a 700-fill and is a cinch to pack up in a suitcase. The sleeves are pleated for easy movement and articulation. The North Face logo with special Trans Antarctica exhibition patches are attached on both the front and back. For the best fit, the hood and waist hem are adjustable. Inside there are secure fit pockets for any belongings needed on the go.
