    My dad and brother both have them as part of their winter survival kit – they often drive in very snowy places in Canada, where if you go off the road – there might not be someone for hours. Very well made jackets.

    I just got their Chateaux parka. It's Expedition class, but rated for TEI 4. It's pretty damn epic, has kept me nice and snug in NY these last few icy days.

    They look to be the leader in heavy duty parkas……

    They are far from inexpensive.. I have spent a lot of jackets… but this is triple what I thought was expensive.. must be for some good reason.

    I rationalized the same thought. Most I'd even spent before was $200. If you get extreme cold and snow, the jacket will pay back ten fold over the years you will get out of it.

    My dad also has a similar coat – forget who makes them – but he has had it for 30 or more years, but it goes down to your ankles, for really cold weather 🙂 Great for ice fishing etc

    Have two Alpha Industry Parkas that are pretty good, but they have different ratings. Don't think that they have the warmth of a goose down parka and I wouldn't go do the Iditarod with one with out proper layers with an Alpha.

    Layering is key to any system… But this does also have quite a cool factor…. Now to get picked to go to the Arctic …

    My wife has one and did not complain once about being cold on our spring trip to Finland, min. -27C. I cannot wear them as they are just to warm for me, or I need to find colder weather with more wind.
