The Black Diamond Men's Cold Forge Parka is a belay jacket for a toasty marshmallow look as your friend climbs the crag. Plenty of loft is provided in the wide baffles from a hybrid blend of PrimaLoft® Gold Down Insulation blend. The combination gives you weather resistance, packability and loads of warmth. Snuggle into the high-zipped collar and pull the hood on too, with or without helmet, it'll fit. Internally there are some big, ol' drop pockets for storing gloves or hat and the front two-way zipper allows access to your belay device. Store any other tiny extras in the zippered hand pockets or chest pocket and straight up enjoy the warmth until it's your turn to solve the rock.

Nice quality jacket but weird fit.Opened it, tried it on, packed it back up to return. Really bummed on the strange fit because this jacket looks to be made very well. Sleeves, chest, hood, everything is good except the bottom waist area is oddly tight. I'm 6' 170lbs, 31" waist. Normal build, even a bit on the scrawny side but the zipper at the bottom is tight and once zipped up, the jacket gives me a "beer gut" look. Why, Black Diamond? Why?
