Men's Glacier Guide Down Parka is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Bought the jacket for a trip to Barrow, AK. 15 below and I was sweating. Jacket is not bulky or noisy when I was moving. Sleeves secure around gloves nicely, no drafts. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm jacket, faulty essentials Bought this for use in North Dakota winters. The jacket is warm, but as others point out, the ripcords at the waist don't stay tight. I sent back to customer service, and although they replaced the cords, it didn't solve the problem. Seems like MH needs to find better ripcord parts for this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On a cold Alaskan Night... I serve with our local fire department. I grabbed this jacket to respond to house fire in the middle of the night. My role was accountability, so lots of watching in the -5 degree weather. The parka was my base layer as I was required to wear my issued turnouts on scene. My core was kept toasty warm for four hours in these tough conditions. This is my go to jacket for other negative temperature activities in Alaska. The hood keeps my neck and bald head nice and warm. The jacket is lofty, and has great pockets to carry needed gear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for cold winters I recently purchased this jacket as it appeared to be a product designed for cold winds and fairly cold temperatures. The jacket is light, comfortable to wear and fits nicely, but is fairly thin. First couple of times I used it, it was only -17 C outside but you could definitely feel the cold coming through. Makes me concerned on how comfortable it will be when the temp gets colder. Basically if you don't have temperatures that get below -20 C than maybe this is a good jacket, but if you do I wouldn't recommend it. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissapointing After owning MH Sub Zero jackets and parkas, this thing is trash, heavy, under filled, fit seems to patterned by a tailor, not end users, the price of this is way too high for what you get, compare this to others and you will see how lame this is , almost a pound more, 650 versus 850 fill. if you want a fashion jacket, maybe this works, but for serious users, no chance, " made for mountain guides", show me mountain guides using these. The chillwave was better than this and that was a step down from the sub zero's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Good Buy This is my second Mountain Hard Wear parka. I was finally able to test my new parka in 19 degree weather with wind gusts of 40+ mph with just a button down shirt underneath. Worked very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really Mountain Hardwear? This jacket is not for alpine climbing as advertised. At a whopping 2.5lbs, it weighs more than my sleeping bag. This would be more suitable for walking a dog over winters in North Dakota, or working as a ski lift attendant. I own the previous version of this parka as well: the MH Sub Zero SL. Here is a comparison: -The GG easily has 20% less loft. The Sub Zero seems to have much more down filling and is therefore warmer. -The GG Parka does have a longer cut making it warmer in that regard. -The inner zipper baffle on the GG has a strip of protectant grosgrain ribbon sewn onto it. the Velcro on the outer zipper cover flap tends to stick to this and get caught. An annoyance when you're in the alpine. -Bottom cinch cord is useless. The toggles do not grab the shock cord. For $400 at least that should work... Conclusions: The previous versions, the Sub Zero SL, Stormlight Parka and the similar Chillwave are much warmer with more loft and better hoods. A quick google image search will confirm this. This jacket is toasty, but also durable and heavy. I would recommend it for a ski resort employee, not a climber. It is warm, but a downgrade compared to previous versions. For the same exact price point, check out the MHW Phantom Hooded jacket. It is completely baffled and at 17 oz with 850FP down, It blows the Glacier Guide out of the water. Mountain Hardwear, why is this jacket still in production? Improve the loft and FP and I would consider taking on an expedition climb.

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 Great quality & attention to detail. Hiking Glennallen & Anaktuvuk Pass, great quality.

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.
