Questions on Thermawrap Pro - Men's (Spring 2013)

Sort by Descending
  • From David at 10/5/11 12:00 PM
    • I believe this is the newer version of what used to be called the UL Thermawrap Parka?

      Does anyone know how the fit compares between the two? The older version had a fairly trim cut in the belly, which is what I'm looking for (most jackets seem to be several inches too big in diameter there). Also, the old version was pretty shiny (risking the trash bag look). Is this one the same in that regard?

      I'm looking for a really warm coat (to use as my only layer for walking around Boston/NY/Chicago in winter), synthetic insulation, no huge ugly logo, pretty basic look (not 2-tone), black, and cut on the trim side (I'm 5'11", 150 lbs., and every jacket I try fits great in the shoulders and chest, but I could fit a bowling ball in the belly area).

      I just received the Arcteryx Khuno parka from BC. It's a great coat, but I think it's just a little too loose (size S), so I may return it. I'd basically like that exact coat, but a little slimmer cut.

      I also tried the 2012 Burton Puffaluffagus. Fit was perfect! But it was too shiny, and I couldn't take the leopard print lining (which you can't see on the website photos, but which is quite visible when the coat is not totally zipped up). Those two things made it look like a women's coat, frankly.

      Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
    • Thanks for the question David. Yes, the Thermawrap Pro replaced the old Thermawrap Parka, but the fit has not changed. It is also still pretty shiny. The Thermawrap has less insulation and far less weather protection in comparison to the Khuno and Puffaluffagus. Those two jackets use a waterproof breathable shell to protect the insulation.

      I think the Arc'Teryx Kappa Hoody might be a better fit for you. It's not quite as long as the Khuno Parka, but it is cut "athletic" whereas the Khuno is "Relaxed". The Kappa isn't waterproof, but it uses Gore Windstopper to stop wind and all but the heaviest rain. Other than that, I don't think we really have a product in stock that will perfectly match your description. The other options are shiny or too large in the torso. Thanks!

    • Why add five ounces to a perfectly good Thermawrap Parka? You've added 40% to the weight of the jacket. Are you totally giving up the ounce counter market?
    • Thanks for the question. I'm not sure why MontBell dropped their regular Thermawrap Parka in favor of the Thermawrap Pro. I think they received feedback that the 15-denier nylon shell was failing to frequently so they switched to 30-denier fabric. That doesn't account for the whole five ounce difference, so I'm really not sure where the extra weight comes from. You might look at the Arc'Teryx Atom LT Hoody. It's closer in weight to the old Thermawrap Parka, and they're very nice. (http://www.backcountrygear.com/arcteryx-atom-lt-hoody-mens.html). Thanks!
