The Wild Things Belay parka is made with excellent, modern materials with one exception...the zippers. The zippers on this heavy duty cold weather parka are shoddy. The Nextec EPIC cover, the Primaloft One insulation and the appearance of this parka are great...but if the zippers are touchy, what good is it for strenuous backpacking trips, much less mountaineering?

Imagine this: its cold and wet out, youve been on the trail all day and are sweaty, tired, hungry and quickly borderline hypothermic when you stop for camp. You put on your Wild Things Belay Parka and the zipper gives you trouble. Thats unacceptable.

Buy another parka.
