Reach for this coat when you're going to be cold
This is the coat you need for extended periods in some of the coldest temps around. I've used this wolf watching in Yellowstone's Lamar Valley. I've used this waiting for bighorns on the Idaho side of Hells Canyon. If you are facing some serious cold times this is the coat you should reach for. You can layer underneath with a vest or...

Very good synthetic option
I bought the DAS Parka because I already have an old North Face down jacket that is basically the equivalent of a Down Sweater, so I wanted to get something different that would stand up to moisture. So, while this Primaloft Gold is obviously not as packable as down, it is incredibly versatile in its ability to perform in rain and snow (this is par... Read Moret of why it has that trash bag texture, which I got used to quickly). I never have to worry about sweating or the insulation getting bunched up, either. It's pretty low-maintenance. Also, it is incredibly warm, warmer than my down jacket, which I do not think happens very often. However, its hood is intended to fit over a climbing helmet, so when hiking and doing other activities, having the hood up was an inconvenience even when I adjusted the drawcord. Also, the jacket ripped in two spots... but this was while I was trudging through spruce blowdowns on the Long Trail in the middle of Winter. I learned quickly that hardly any gear is built for that. And Patagonia offered to replace it or give me store credit. I ended up settling on another DAS, so that speaks to how good it is in spite of me mostly using it for activities that it wasn't intended for.
Super warm, super comfortable, super duper jacket
This jacket is fantastic. I've been on the hunt for something that would fight off the chill while belaying, and something I could wear to the beach in the winter - this jacket is perfect. I am 5'8" 140lbs, slim build, and the XS is ideal. Originally I purchased the small, thinking I would want to layer under the jacket - I then real... Read Moreized this jacket is insanely warm... How warm? I was at the beach with the wind blowing 35 and the temp hovering around 20F with nothing but a t-shirt under the jacket - I was happy as a clam.
Love this parka!
I'm a female but sometimes order Ms Patagonia jackets because I want the extra room and the straight fit. I can actually wear a Ws Nano under this comfortably for sub zero temps. However the day I got the DAS I wore it in 20 degree weather with wind and only a light flannel underneath and was sooooo warm! Love the big drop in pockets inside an... Read Mored the zip chest pocket (but my Samsung phone doesn't fit in there...what??!!) It's incredibly soft and light. Finally I found a parka that measures up to the last Ms parka I bought in 2000 (the Guide parka), but Ill retire it for the DAS. Worth every cent!!
It is so freaking warm! I took this jacket out in 5F weather and felt pretty toasty. I'm sure this jacket can go well bellow 0F considered it is almost at the apex of Patagonia. It is a bit pricy and I have to wait for it to go on sale ($150 off), and I am so glad I bought it. The jacket is very light. It is also well designed so it does not f... Read Moreeel bulky at all. I actually wore this all day in the office on extreme cold days.
Brilliant Layer for Active Pursuits in Cold Weather
This is a terrific jacket for cold weather pursuits when you are naturally generating a lot of body heat. If you have just come off of an approach or a climb, this would be a great belay parka, but if you are belaying for extended periods the cold will seep in as it wouldn't with down. Overall, it's a terrific jacket with a great drop hem... Read More and two way zipper to accommodate harnesses. My only real sadness/frustration is that the pockets (all three of them) are too small. The hand-warmer pockets are just barely big enough to fully cover my hands, but with gloves on they are too shallow and set too close to the center zipper. The chest pocket is too small to accommodate an iPhone 11 in any orientation which is disappointing as keeping it warm in the hold would be helpful. Overall, though, it's a great jacket and I would recommend it!
Sizing slowly returning to normal
I have a very old DAS parka from the 1990's I think. It's an XL, and the zipper is slowly failing, which is why I bought a new jacket. The issue for Patagoia from my perspective is the sizing. This old DAS parka fits me even with a Retro Fleece cardigan beneath it (I'm 6'1" and 220 lbs). So, I can be hiking, or climbing, or... Read More doing some other activity that required some insulation, and pull on my DAS parka for the evening and be quite comfortable. For reasons that I don't understand, Patagonia went through a period where their XL garments were dramatically too small for me. I purchased rain gear that I had to return, as well as a barely used DAS parka (several years old) from another person that were both too small unless I wore only a light shirt beneath them. Was Patagonia making garments to be worn on college campuses rather than the original purposes for which they were designed? I am pleased to say the latest DAS parka is closer to the sizing of the original DAS parka. I can wear a medium-weight fleece beneath my new DAS parka and not feel constricted. Finally! There are a lot of other good things about this parka: the two-way zipper, the pulls at the waist and the warmth. I think that the new insulation is both lighter and warmer than my original DAS parka, and even warmer than the more recent used DAS parka that I purchased. The new parka is also longer than the used parka, being close to the length of my old parka. I am quite happy with my new parka. I hope that it and I last 20 years or more!
Bought this for scientific field work on the US/Canada border and so far it's surprisingly warm for the thickness - I don't know how Patagonia does it. Layered properly, I expect to stay warm down to 0f. I'm 170lb and expect to fit both a 200wt fleece and nano-puff hooded jacket under this, with a ski-shell over if need be.
Its ok. Fit might not be for me.
I wear a medium in all Patagonia. And before I start, I will say, I understand what this jacket is meant to be used for which results in the odd fit. A medium in this was massive and a small fit like a smaller-sized medium so I guess I was in between sizes. Kept the small and it works but it feels tight under the arms. All of the pockets except... Read More the two inside drop pockets are TINY. I can barely fit my keys and wallet in the check pocket, let alone a standard size iPhone. The two hand pockets are shallow. I keep my phone in there and it falls out every time I unzip the pocket. Dont understand why they placed the side pockets so close the the front zipper. The pockets are so small that I considered I maybe have been sent a previous model. All that being said, its warm. Very warm. I can even squeeze a down sweater underneath for when my office job requires me to go out into the field and it is a toasty combo. Im satisfied, for the sale price I got it at but it could be a better fit with better features.
Just love this jacket,I only use this jacket when it is very cold (it is a furnace) ,insulation as far as I am concerned is better than down. The real advantage compared to down is that it does not loose its efficiency when wet,I got caught in a freezing rain and rain storm and was completely soaked and was was still very warm.
The DAS is Legend
I was saddened when the DAS was discontinued for a time and had fears that I would not be able to replace mine when it finally became too tattered with the amount I use it. It is great to know that you have resurrected it - hopefully never to disappear again. I absolutely love the DAS. The dual drop in pockets are perfect for storing climbing skin... Read Mores while Skiing in the BC, keeping the skins moderately warm helps to keep the glue sticky enough to attach to my skis between runs down the mountain. My go to layering system while skiing is a wool t-shirt, with Hoodini for skinning and then the DAS goes on as soon as I reach the top of the run - rip skins, put them in the drop in pockets in the DAS and then ski down the run. Repeat. Using this method I stay dry on the climb and warm on the descent and during my frequent snack and tea breaks. The DAS is an extension of my body out there. Guaranteeing stable comfortable body temperature while out gathering the good tidings of the mountains. This is a dependable, durable piece of gear I hope to always have in my quiver. I will probably get a fresh DAS soon so as to ensure I always have one ready to go. Thanks for building it. And for bringing it back. Huzzah!
An Amazing Belay Parka
I was looking for a synthetic belay parka for ice climbing and other winter exploits and the DAS parka is superb. It's warm enough for long frigid belays and can definitely take a beating! It has snagged on my ice tools and axes more than I'd like to admit and there wasn't a single scratch. My only complaint, which is quite minor in ... Read Morethe grand scheme of things, is that it's a bit difficult to put on and take off with gloves on, mainly due to the elastic cuff that also functions as synch cord. Otherwise, I absolutely adore this parka and it has become one of my favorite pieces of gear in my kit!
I purchased this Parka due to the recommendations at the Patagonia store. I wanted something warm. I live in NYC and needed a warm coat to do field work. This coat fits the bill. I tested it on a 10 degree day with high winds and was warm. Walked 10 miles and at times needed to open the parka due to overheating. If you want the best and warmest lig...

Not As Warm As Advertised
I've used this jacket for walks at night in the CO winter, and I can feel the cold wind coming through the jacket when the temp gets below 30 degrees F and there's a little wind. I need to layer sweaters or fleece to approach staying warm, and even then, it's not completely warm or windproof.
Hello and thank you for your feedback on the DAS Parka. As always, per our Ironclad Guarantee you are more then welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) the item if is not working out for you.
Purchased for reading great literature under the stars every night from 10pm-Midnight on my deck during the Pandemic :). The fit is great over my burly frame (XXL), 6'3" (295 lbs). Especially nice fit in the shoulders and appreciate the long sleeves (I have a 7' wingspan). Extra length is a plus. Clear, starry, windy nights have been... Read More no problem during extended reads. Hood fits with a hat/headlamp on, with plenty of room in the neck/chin while enabling great peripheral vision of the milky way. The thumb loops are nice for hand coverage holding the book. Much warmer than the Macro Puff (returned it) and better shoulder fit. Will use this for the rest of my life and for all alpine, camping, fly fishing, etc. trips. Shakespeare, Cormac McCarthy, Alex Lowe, Robert Frost and Hemingway would all exhaust superlatives praising the DAS Parka!
Warm and Comfy
The jacket is great. I purchased it for a motorcycle camping trip I was planning that went through some higher elevations. I needed something that would pack small for when I was riding and keep me warm when I was off the bike. This is the perfect night time / early morning jacket, the temperatures were in the low 20s, and with a few base layers an... Read Mored this jacket I was able to stay nice and warm. The fit is great for me, I have long arms and the sleeves are the perfect length, not halfway up my forearm when my arms are extended! Its a bit crinkly sounding when you are moving around, but nothing crazing. Anyone looking for a warm lightweight packable jacket should give this a look. Another (big part) part of my decision to pick this up is to support a company that cares about people and the planet! Its great to be able to get a great product and know that its made by people trying to do right.
One Dependable Piece of Gear
I bought my current DAS parka back in the late 1990's. It was on sale, which accounts for the garish purple color. It has been my primary belay jacket/camp parka/chore coat for over 25 years at anything down to about minus 20 or so. I was walking to the grocery store the other day when an elderly couple stopped me. They observed the weather wa... Read Mores particularly bad and asked if I had a safe, warm place to stay that night. When I related this to my wife, she observed that being mistaken for a street person is probably a hint that it is time for a new parka. Really? Other than a dozen duct tape patches and some ground-in oil stains on the wrists, my old DAS parka is in great shape. It might not have quite the sub-sub-zero capability it had when new but then neither do I. It is really your fault. If you didn't make this parka so well, maybe I could buy a parka more often than once very 25 years.
Super Awesome and warm
I just received it. It fits like a glove and it seems to be very well made. I bought it to replace a fleece lined poly coat. I know I will thoroughly enjoy wearing it for a long time. I don't plan on wearing it to climb Meru Peak except in my dreams. Please keep making the very best gear!!
Multi use jacket. Great value
This jacket is a multi purpose jacket. Top rated in hiking situations over Portugal and Spain and France, where the shell fabric provided dry and comfortable temperatures. It runs true to size. I like the long design that covers below the hip. The insulation is warm. I used it with base layers and thermal insulation. I appreciate the design with th... Read Moree large pockets and zippers.

Comfortably Warm in even the Coldest of Conditions
DAS Parkas are the warmest outerwear I've ever owned. This replaces my previous one that's taken a ton of abuse, still works great, but wanted a new color. Since I gotten into rowing marathons, I've slimmed down (6'3", 180 lbs); the size length of sleeves, torso are both great, but like much of my clothing, it's pretty... Read More roomy. With the elastic drawstring cord at the hem, it keeps out the drafts wonderfully. I tend to run cold, so this will get use on really cold days skiing, and as a belay parka when climbing. I tend to take long walks and hikes with my spouse throughout the winter, so this Parka will get daily use during the bitter cold months.
