Patagonia Women's DAS Parka
For full-on alpine conditions, the DAS Parka is our warmest synthetic insulated jacket; it’s made with 120-g PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Hi-Loft throughout, with 60-g PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation added in core areas, and a lightweight, PU-coated nylon ripstop shell that’s durable, water-resistant and windproof.
Ice and alpine climbing tends toward the cold and rowdy, but the DAS Parka helps keep things civil. It traps your heat after a hard lead, blocks Patagonian winds and is femininely shaped with a baffled collar (a unanimous request from our women climbing ambassadors and testers). The DAS’s sculpted fit maximizes warmth (though still sized as a belay parka) with lofty warm-when-wet 120-g PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Hi-Loft throughout plus an additional layer of 60-g PrimaLoft Gold Insulation wrapping the torso. The lightweight, PU-coated nylon ripstop shell (with DWR finish) is durable, water-resistant and windproof. A single-pull, adjustable, helmet-compatible hood and a tall collar trap extra heat. A few of the finer points: zippered and insulated handwarmer pockets, a zippered chest pocket, large interior mesh pockets for drying gloves, elasticized cuffs, a drawcord drop-tail hem and a 2-way zip (with internal, insulated wind flap) that lets you see your belay device. Stuffsack included.
