Outdoor Research Super Alpine Down Parka

Big, burly, and warm, the Super Alpine Down Parka delivers when you need it. Outdoor Research combined 800-fill power from responsibly sourced goose down insulation with PU-coated, Pertex Quantum Pro 30D ripstop to keep you warm and dry during the coldest adventures. The Super Alpine Down Parka is made for early alpine starts, ice-climbing belays, and general deep-cold pursuits. Available in both men’s and women’s styles.

Minnesota winters are rough, with a deep cold that is pervasive for months. Staying active outside helps stave off the winter blues, so having warm gear for the coldest days is imperative.

The Super Alpine jacket’s 800-fill goose down is very warm, and Outdoor Research is transparent about sourcing its down responsibly. Better yet, Outdoor Research provides you with a lot number that you can use to track the down in your jacket.

The two-way main zipper is clutch when belaying. And, several stash pockets throughout the jacket are super convenient for storing essentials.

We’d be remiss to not mention the tall front collar with a brushed tricot across the chin and a brushed tricot inside the hand pocket. It is those small details that make this a standout piece. While this jacket is expensive, it is a must-have for adventurers who don’t say “no” when the temps take a dip.
