Men's Glacier Guide Down Parka is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A step above A step above and the first real water resistant down jacket I have owned, only issue is that it has to be very cold for me to wear this jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has mixed feature Pros: I like the hood with the tightening cord in the back so that it does not get in the way of the collar in the front. And it creates a snug hood. Also the multilayer bundling features around he neck are comfortable and keep me warm. The coat is working good in the very cold Chicago winter so far. Cons: For me the coat makes my back sweat, which makes my back cold when I take it off indoors. Also I use sleeve length 33 and this medium has a much longer length- so I need to bunch it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not too puffy and wonderfully warm. It wasn't my first choice because puffs typically don't look all that great and limit movement. This parka is a bit puffy, but it looks good and is not enough to limit movement. Also with the 650 fill and materials in the parka is wonderfully warm even in ~10°F. Size runs larger; I ordered a medium as a 6' 190lb and it is still a tiny bit large (but comfortable).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed The perfect coat for the cold. I usually use multiple layers when it's really cold outside. But if I want to just go out and walk the dog, having a really warm coat is so much less bother. Also, for cold-weather spectator sports, even all those layers don't keep me warm, but this does. Excellent design, fit, and construction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious Warmth I am a ski race coach and I often spend my mornings setting courses and this jacket is way too warm for serious activity. However, once the race begins and I spend the next 6 hours standing in sub-zero temps this jacket is awesome. The hood is helmet compatible and keeps my head toasty and the numerous pockets can easily store all my essential items. I read the previous reviews and understood that it does run a bit large. I purchased my usual large size with the expectation of layering underneath, but I have not had a need to wear much more than a base layer and medium weight mid-layer in even the coldest temps so far this season (-10F, -25F wind chill).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Parka With A Few Flaws I purchased this jacket to replace my 16 year old Mountain Hardwear Stormlight down parka. I had heard rumors that quality had slipped a bit since Columbia purchased the company, and I would kind of agree. This jacket is nowhere near as nice as my Stormlight was, but it's still a decent jacket. It clearly doesn't have as much fill, and I wish the hood was slightly larger. I also wish it had a drawcord at the waist, which my Stormlight did, and the toggles on the bottom drawcord don't hold their position on the cord at all, making the bottom drawcord essentially useless. The drawcord for the hood is on the back of the hood, which seems a little awkward for me. Again, it's a solid jacket but I'm glad I got a smokin' deal on it because I really don't feel it's worth $400.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and Dry! As the other reviews stated, it runs large. I'm 6'2" tall 200 lbs and athletic build. I like the added length vs a typical jacket. The bottom of the parka hits me at the very top of my legs. The external material is very well made and more dupable than most other coats that are this light. I've had this parka in 10 degree weather (Sitting for 2+ hours) and stayed warm with a medium base layer on. All of the pockets have the insulation on the out side, so when you stick your hands in, the pockets are nice and warm. However, it doesn't fit as well as the Absolute Zero™ Parka around the neck. I wish this had a draw sting or something, but i just have used a neck gator and been just fine. All around, a great Parka!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs large Runs large, I'm 6' tall 200 lbs and very athletic build very fit no beer gut. I have other Mountain Hardwear jackets and this runs large. I ordered a large and should have got a Medium. Very functional cold cold weather jacket other than sizing I like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Impressions I received this parka today. It will be a while before it gets cold enough for me to be able to speak of how warm it is, but I can at least give my first impressions. I have a sub zero parka from MH that I love, so I wanted to give this one a try. The sub zero is definitely a loftier jacket. The guide parka weighs the same as the sub zero, but it obviously doesn't have a much down in it. The neck doesn't fit as well as the sub zero either. When I zip up the guide parka, there is a fair amount of room for cold air or wind to get through. The sub zero has a tight fit. All in all, I like this parka. Do I like it as well as the sub zero? No, but that's ok. I'm a A HUGE MH fan. I own 30+ pieces of your clothing. I would definitely recommend this to other people if they need a heavy duty, full featured parka.
