Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almosts prefect execpt why no 2 way zipper??? Warm and good quality build. And the "not enough insulation in the arm area" issue already been addressed by NF in 2014 ver. Today Toronto temp was -20c, and I have to stay outdoor for almost an hour, this jacket and a 100 lvl fleece as a mid layer able to keep my body warm. And my only complaint is why no 2 way zipper? MCMURDO PARKA is a long jacket, and I just don't understand why the designer took away the 2 way zipper??? Or North Face want to cut cost??? It is so inconvenience when you need to get in/ out from car; take something from your pant's pocket OR as simple as bent down to pick up something on the floor.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, not quite perfect Very warm, well made and great looking parka. I'm 6' 0" and 180lbs, with athletic, broad shouldered build, and the Medium fits like made to measure. The North Face online fit-guide pointed me to an L, but I tried in-store and found that had too much slop around the hips which would have constantly allowed cold air inside. Zippers are sticky, sometimes not wanting to open, not terrible, but quirky. Only disappointment is the hood design, as you can't zip it up around your face like a snorkel parka. The hood is removable and personally I'd have preferred a fixed hood which closed more tightly than a removable one that I'll never remove. Still, overall really impressed with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs very big Jacket looks great online. Finally arrived today so I was excited to try on. To my disappointment, this jacket is huge. Like, comically huge. I am having a hard time believing this is a medium, but that is what the label says. Seriously is more like a XXL. Length is fine, but width of the body and arms is just ridiculous to the point that I'm just swimming in the jacket, even with a few layers on underneath. I am 6'0 tall, 33" waist, and 40R chest. I have two other winter coats from North Face in medium, one fits just right and one is a little small. So the sizes for these jackets really makes no sense to me. Thinking I might try a small instead, but I'm afraid it will end up being too short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A smart buy for cold winters! Both warm and stylish I bought this for my brother, who is 5 feet 7 inches tall and pretty slim. The Small was slightly bit big on him (did not return for an XS because the room inside the jacket allowed for him to layer up in freezing weather) and he really liked the Navy color and overall look. I think this jacket is excellent for very cold weathers, and it will definitely do its job in keeping you warm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Serious Parka I live in the coldest urban center in the United States--Fairbanks, Alaska, and I work outside in the winter as a guide. My work takes me up north into the Arctic, where I often stand outside at night in colder temperatures than most people ever experience in their lives. I have a North Face McMurdo parka that I bought probably 6 years ago, which is a different color than the ones here. I don't know if the materials and design otherwise is very different. This coat is seriously warm--I am never worried about being cold in this coat. In fact, I usually won't wear this parka unless it is 0 degrees F or colder. If it drops to extreme lows, like -25 to -50 or colder, my parka has plenty of room to add extra layers. With the layers, I laugh at any extreme cold temperature. Other perks--It's waterproof. It has huge pockets in the front that can hold my gigantic mitts with room left over (this coat is like having a small backpack with you). It has an iPod pocket inside. The drawbacks, which are minor--The faux fur ruff snaps on, and comes off a bit too easily. Wish it had a zipper. The faux fur ruff does not lay "roundly" over the head--it lays a bit horizontally, so it doesn't look as good as it could when the hood is pulled up. These concerns are not enough for me to drop my rating from a 5 to a 4. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for the buck Before I purchased this parka I did my homework. After last year's Polar Vortex I wasn't messing around! I went to stores to try them on, asked the employees/managers/customers 1,001 questions, went to various websites reading customer reviews as well as read Consumer Reports from top to bottom. You name it, I did it. So trust me, save the time & just get this one, you won't regret it. Now I'm not saying that this particular parka is perfect but it is (by far) the most bang for the buck you're going to find anywhere. Dollar for dollar nothing else in the under $500 range comes remotely close to the McMurdo. It's really warm, it's durable, it's extremely comfortable & it's as fashion friendly & versatile as you can get from a parka. However, I do recommend getting one size larger than the "find your size" option recommends. I 'm not saying that it runs small, I'm just saying that the site under estimates the fit. At least it did for me. I'm 6'1" & roughly 250lbs, the site recommended XL but I went with the XXL & it fits like a glove. The length is perfect. It falls to roughly mid to upper thigh & no wind creeps up. Also, the upper chest pockets are a bit misleading. The pocket openings are on the sides, (not on the top) rendering those flaps on the chest useless & a bit added bulk but I do love that they cleverly hid the drawstring to tighten the fit inside of them. There's 8 pockets in all. including an inside media pocket & one pocket on the left arm perfect for a smart phone or pack of cigarettes. I keep a pair of gloves at all times in 1 of the front pockets that blend right into the plush. I do wish that the zipper was double sided for bending down, reaching into pants' pockets or sitting in the car & I do think that it would've been better if the hood was either stationary or had a zipper rather than buttons but none of that was a deal breaker for me. I like the adjustable cuffs, it lets me set it so that no cold air gets in but I can take it on & off with ease & I absolutely love the drawstrings inside the hood so that you can fix the fur to either be straight across or curved with your face. If you zip it all the way up you will look like Kenny from South Park but I promise that your face will stay warm. All & all it is the warmest coat I've ever owned & yes, I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, a very good jacket The McMurdo is a very nice jacket. I ended up snagging it in the Grey tweed color after I bought and then returned the Gotham in the same color (was not a fan of the fit/number of pockets on the Gotham). I am far happier with the McMurdo. The number is pockets is excellent, although the two upper chest pockets are essentially useless as handwarmer pockets, as they are very small and have zippers on them that dig into your wrist when your hands are in the pockets. The two bottom pockets are far more practical for use as handwarmer pockets, and they are partially lined (on only the front portion of the pocket-not fully lined, for reasons unbeknownst to me) with soft fleece. The only problem with this is that they are fairly low on the coat, and so if you have short arms using them could be problematic. The sizing on this coat is pretty much spot on. Contrary to what TNF's sizing chart recommended (Medium), I went with my usual size Large after reading others' reviews regarding the sizing (I am 5'9, around 185 lbs with broad shoulders) and the fit is excellent: not too loose, but also not too tight so I still have room for layering on ultra cold days. The coat is fairly long, but that is to be expected when buying a parka like this so the length is just fine. The lack of a two-way zipper had me worried when initially buying the coat, but it hasn't really been a problem; had I purchased the Medium as the site recommended, it might have been too tight around the hips and then I could see the zipper being a problem when kneeling down, getting in the car, etc. Bottom line-go with your usual size on this one, don't listen to people who say it runs gigantic-it doesn't. The jacket is very warm-I have worn it as far down to 2?F so far (-10F with windchill) with a T-shirt underneath, and it kept me warm. It is not quite as "puffy" as it used to be (I have an older 2002 McMurdo model that definitely has at least a little more down in it) but the warmth feels similar (the older one is probably marginally warmer). But the new version feels less gigantic on your body, and is definitely easier to move around in, so I'm fine with that tradeoff. As far as I can tell so far, the jacket is VERY wind resistant, and as close to windproof as pretty much any jacket I've owned. The waterproof factor is also excellent-water beads right off. The hood keeps your head warm, and although it is detachable (for some reason), it does a good job keeping wind out compared with detachable hoods I've seen on other jackets. Overall, this jacket is a very good deal. I managed to get it for $230 on one of TNF's authorized online dealer sites, but even for the original price of $330 it's still a lot of jacket for the money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm Warm Warm I am 6'1", 225 lbs, wide shoulders, and long arms. Ordered the XL originally. XL did fit OK but was a bit loose in the torso/waist. I exchanged for a L and it fits great. Good arrangement of pockets. Good movement for a down jacket. Like the hood with built in face mask. Got it just in time for the cold weather. Very warm in below zero temps, even with just a light shirt underneath.
