The Women's Tres Parka by Patagonia. The Tres Parka is a 3-in-1 waterproof/windproof down coat for the coldest climes; it's made of polyester stretch twill and has an H2No barrier and Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish. As they say in France and some parts of the Great White North a.k.a. Canada, this parka is "tres chic." There's an accent in there somewhere, but let's not get technical.

I use this for trips from Florida to Rocky Ridge Maryland to work on our farm, and it is warm to -32 (including windchill) and can be adjusted up to 40 degrees. Most importantly, I usually wear men's Patagonia jackets because the arm sleeves are four inches longer in Small and with this jacket the sleeves are two inches longer than usual for a women's, which is amazing...finally. The jack is well worth the $325 I paid, after I fell off my chair when I first saw the price.
"Compliments all around, even at the DMV (seriously). Sleek, fashionable but better yet...WARM coat."
I purchased this Patagonia coat after many attempts to find a warm winter coat. I live in Minneapolis and have a cabin in northern MN... so it's cold. For real cold. I tried North Face and other parkas - looked like a sausage soccer mom. I tried a few thinner coats for the same price and wasn't warm enough (if you pay this much you really shouldn't have to layer). Bottom line, I love how sleek, fitted, and understated this coat is! The slimmed waistline is what really takes the cake. I get compliments everywhere- even 2 separate compliments at the DMV. Of all places.I am 5'5", 135 with hips. I purchased the M black and it fits great with room for a big sweater. I've seen the slate grey color on a friend and it's stunning.Two complaints about this product. 1: the arms are a bit long for me, but that's manageable. 2: the down puffs all over creation. Not enough of a complaint to make me return it, but irritating on dark clothing. I have a white dog so I have to lint roll anyway.
I searched for about 3 years for the right coat. This is it! It is currently 4* yet I stay super toasty in my Patagonia Tres Parka. The length is perfect and it is tailored well enough to look stylish while keeping me warm. When it isn't feeling sub-arctic, it is really easy to disassemble the liner from the outer coat and wear whichever layer I like. I highly recommend this coat.
I have worn this coat so far from late October through mid-January in Chicago, where winter came early and hit hard ("Chiberia"!). I'm really satisfied with the fit of this coat. I'm 5'7" 135 lbs, with a small-med athletic frame. The length is great, falls mid thigh. The cinched waist fits just right. As far as functionality and use, I love the fact that it can be worn 3 ways. I've worn this in snow, rain, and wind. It does a great job keeping you dry. As far as warmth, I found that this keeps me mostly warm. I do find that wearing a puffy vest underneath helps on days when weather is below 30. If I wear a fleece or thick sweater, too tight in the shoulders& bend of the arms. So when the windchill is -50, layers are a must! Pockets aren't as small as some say. I have quite large hands also. Overall, satisfied. My ONE issue with the coat is that the feathers DO come out quite a bit like a few reviews mention. This definitely sucks but I've accepted it for the rest the coat offers.
I had been looking for a parka-length coat for quite a while. The coats I was deciding between were the North Face Metropolis, North Face Suzanne, and this Patagonia Tres.First and foremost, I appreciate that the outer shell for this coat is waterproof (unlike the North Face Metropolis). I also really like the gray coat with the light gray down (removable) insert. The North Face Suzanne was only available in White/White and Black/Black. Both the down insert and the outer shell fit great by themselves and together.(I'm 5'8, with some curves in my thighs and rear end - I was able to buy Size Medium)! The North Face Suzanne coat required me to purchase a size Large, which as silly as it sounds - I don't appreciate. I had a hard time finding a warm winter coat that I could wear around but still look good - THIS IS IT! Can't wait to wear it this winter!
Makes it feel not windy. Keeps the rain off. Keeps the heat in. It also reminds me of a jacket 007 (if 007 was an awesome woman), this is mainly due to the fact when it's not über cold out: the down liner zips out and then you have (what they call) a shell!
"Best in Show: Versatile, Functional, Work and Recreation Multi Tasker"
I was sick of trying to find the right coat for every occasion. I live in a mountain town and own a couple of Patagonia coats (one for running, one for snuggling, one for hiking). This coat lets me go everywhere and look just right. Obviously, it's too long (I'm 5'9" and it hits me mid thigh) to ski in. I can bike commute in the rain in the outer shell because it has a two way zipper. I can put on my Nano Puff under Tres both layers if it's really cold and peel the Tres off before I head out on a Nordic ski. Put in on back at the car and I'm toasty and ready for a 10 Barrel Beer at the brewpub. I wear it to work with my fancy pants and boots and no one knows it's Patagonia because they thoughtfully put the logo on the DNR layer quietly on the sleeve. Fits like a dream. With my athletic build (I've got shoulders, hips and quads) it fits snug at the waist but I can sit easily and move freely. Would buy another one if this one wasn't so darn perfect.
I absolutely am in love with this coat. I just bought it a little over a week ago before we got hit with snow here in Michigan and it's been my best purchase of the christmas season! Not only is it trendy, but the coat hits my legs around mid thigh which is perfect when drafts of wind come through. The length also makes the coat so it doesn't rise to show your back when you sit down. It's also not too long that it will make someone with smaller legs look even shorter. This jacket is extremely warm and very comfortable. I'm interested in seeing how this coat will benefit me during the spring as the layers break apart offering flexibility year round. I would buy this coat again in a heart beat and definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a trendy, warm coat through the cold winter seasons.
"Nice Parka, but Waist Shaping Too Severe"
I purchased the Patagonia Tres Parka online based on positive reviews and Patagonia's reputation for excellent quality outerwear. Though the quality and versatility of the parka did not disappoint, the fit was not what I was looking for. Though I like a bit of tapering at the waist for a flattering fit, I found the waist shaping on this parka to be too severe. I will be returning this item as it would be difficult for me to wear anything other than a very fitted light sweater comfortably under this jacket.I am 5' 6" 130lbs and ordered a size Medium.I have included garment measurements below for reference. All measurements were taken on the flat:Across Chest (1" below armholes, straight across garment): 20.5"Waist at narrowest point: 18"Bottom Sweep: (following the hem contour) 25.25"Hope this helps you make an informed purchasing decision.
So I choose this coat because it seemed like a good bargain compared to the actually price on the Patagonia website (though still expensive). Online I didn't think it looked cute at all and I was just hoping it would keep me warm through Canadian winters but it's actually super cute on! It's a little on the small side (slim fit) but nothing a few crunches...well maybe more than a few crunches...will fix. Also I expected it to be a lot heaver and thick but it's actually pretty light and not bulky but still warm! The pockets on the outside are relatively small though - my hand won't fit in them and I have small hands, but other than that I feel like it will last a long time and was a good purchase.
I purchased the Fiona Patagonia coat earlier this season, which didn't keep me warm enough. I decided to splurge once this coat went on sale, and very glad I did. I can use the trench without the parka in the fall/spring. I sized up as this coat as a slim fit and I do like to wear layers. The grey color is classic! So nice not to have another black coat.
This has saved my wife from some pretty bitterly cold days here in NYC. When the windchill is below freezing she normally wears this with just a T-shirt underneath and is, I quote "toasty warm". Not sure whether she has small hand or others have large ones but she has no complaints about pocket size. She tried on, bought, and returned MANY other coats and while this one's expensive - it's worth the money over others.
