The finest down parka ever made. The Encapsil™ Down Belay Parka is 100% independently baffled and differentially cut, and insulated with Patagonia's Encapsil™ down - a proprietary, plasma-treated, water-repellent down with an unprecedented fill-power of 1000; numbered, limited edition.
Now, even in burly alpine conditions, you can rely on the warmth and comfort that only down offers: The Encapsil™ Down Belay Parka, an uncommonly beautiful work of design, engineering and function, is the best down parka ever made. And it's the first of its kind - a 100% independently baffled, differentially cut parka without a single shortcut or “cheat.” Weighing in just north of 18 ounces (518 grams), it's insulated with Patagonia's proprietary, plasma-treated, water-repellent Encapsil™ down that carries an unprecedented fill-power of 1000. The result is an incredibly warm parka for its light weight.
Ultralightweight 100% nylon shell fabric with a polyurethane dry coating has excellent water repellency
Helmet-compatible, baffled hood has a single drawcord that creates a small draft collar of down around the face
Variegated baffles are smaller in high-compression areas, like the shoulders and the small of the back, to keep the down from shifting; double-baffle wind flap completely seals out cold and wind
Exterior handwarmer pockets are independently insulated to retain precious warmth, even with the pocket zippers open; the high position keeps them away from the harness line; large interior mesh pockets placed toward the back reduce bulk in front
Flexible, low-profile cuffs sit soft on the arm and easily push up and out of the way
Unique pull-system at hem lets you adjust drawcord from inside or out; drawcord won't dangle or snag on harness, rocks or branches. Mini snowskirt keeps out wind and snow from below. Regular fit accommodates layers; numbered, limited edition
