The Arcteryx Men's Dually Belay Parka is the perfect jacket to keep on-hand when climbing in questionable weather. Dual layers of ThermaTek™ synthetic insulation will trap warm air close to your body while the DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment will shed the rain. These are useful features for when inclement weather rolls in and you're on belay (the stuff sack has a clip-in point to attach to a harness). The full-length WaterTight™ front-zip has dual zippers so it can work around harnesses and/or ropes. The Dually Belay Parka is designed with technical pursuits in mind, but still functions perfectly as an all around winter mid-layer.

  • Dual layers of the DWR immersed ThermaTek retains insulation capabilities in the wettest conditions
  • Expedition fit accommodates multiple layers without restricting movement
  • Insulated, helmet-compatible StormHood with laminated brim delivers full coverage without restricting visibility or mobility

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in class. Any heavyweight synthetic parka is a fairly specialized piece of gear which is best used as a belay jacket in freezing conditions on longer, more committing routes. Down is warmer for the weight and more compressible - better for most day trips and cragging but fickle/fragile. If you get it wet (typically from the inside with your wet layers and sweat/vapor at belays) or slice it with an ice screw sending feathers flying everywhere you're gonna have a bad day. Synthetic isn't as warm, but it's reliable and would weather those situations with ease. I've tried down w/ water resistant treatment and down/synthetic blend - it all gets wet eventually. Often down is OK for a sleeping bag, but belay parkas get much more abuse. If you'd rather hear it from a better climber, Google "Belay Parka: Down vs Synthetic" on Kelly Cordes' blog. Also worth checking out Steve House's videos on YouTube about his gear on Nanga Parbat - he brought a synthetic parka up the Rupal face, and I'm sure he could have gotten any down jacket he wanted for free. House also discusses down vs synthetic in the "packing for an overnight alpine climb" video. There are basically two kinds of synthetic construction - short staple fibers and continuous fibers, which have classically been represented by Primaloft and Climashield, respectively. The typical Primaloft stuff (e.g. Gold/One) is softer, thinner, more compressible, a little warmer for the weight, more like down. Jackets that are made with it have to use lots of stitching to keep the short fibers in place. The two compromises with short staple fibers are that 1) they are not as durable in the face of multiple compression cycles and 2) the stitching all over creates cold spots. Continuous fibers like Climashield don't compress as well, but are more durable. They also don't need as many stitches to keep them in place, so cold spots are less of an issue. For a belay jacket that lives its life getting stuffed/unstuffed I think continuous fibers are the better compromise. Sadly, there aren't many continuous fiber options currently on the market (and this is a relatively small market to begin with). The Dually uses Climashield Prism which has a built in DWR. Arc'teryx go beyond just taking advantage of the inherent characteristics of the material which allow less stitching by laminating it to the face fabric, thus requiring very little stitching at all throughout the jacket. They call it Thermatek. So you have a (relatively) long-lasting, water-resistant bomb shelter with no cold spots. You can put it on over your soaked layers, dry gloves it in, slice it with your sharp toys, stuff it in your pack wet and it'll be ready to go at the next belay. The Dually has all the features you would expect from a proper belay jacket.Two internal mesh drop-in pockets for drying gloves. Insulated hand pockets. Two-way zip. Helmet compatible hood. It's cut big to go over cold weather layers. I'm 6'1", 180lbs, ~40in chest, athletic frame and I take a Large. It's got plenty of room for an insulated midlayer, and to stuff your gloves etc.. inside to dry while not compressing the insulation at all. It is long and covers my butt. I think it's cut correctly for its intended use. I wear Large in other Arc'teryx stuff. Just be aware if you're (for whatever reason) getting this jacket for some other use it is going to be huge. I've used the Dually in fairly hostile weather climbing ice in the Northeast US and Alaska. I have owned some and tried on other competitors, and while I can afford to add any jacket I want to my gear closet, this is the one I choose to use. As to the question of whether it's worth twice as much as the competition, that's more difficult. I do think it's better, but I'm not sure it's twice as good. I think realistically you are paying in part for the dead bird logo, but keep in mind it is made in North America unlike the competitors, so there is some additional cost in production. If you're scraping by on ramen noodles living in a van while saving for your next climbing trip, the price might be hard to justify. Critiques? Not much honestly. Arc'teryx did this one right. I would like to see more facial coverage in the hood (this is hard to find), and a color besides black (mountain jackets should be bright). For the record, I'm not an Arc'teryx shill. I have left them mediocre reviews on some products (I think the Nuclei AR is overrated). There are companies I would much rather give my money to (Patagonia for their environmental activism, or a small cottage manufacturer). But in this case the Dually really is the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome Belay Jacket I used this coat in -17 F belay and was not cold at all. It's a super warm jacket. It comes with a stuff sack and it has a biner loop on it! It's not the best packing coat but I'd rather be warm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jacket I have ever owned I bought this a year ago at a consignment store. I normally don't like the puffy type of jacket but I have struggled to find a jacket to keep me really warm. I live in the mountains and I do a lot of landscape photography. This means standing in the middle of a winter night doing very little activity. On top of that I am skinny and tend to get cold easily. The guy at the store told me this is basically what this jacket was designed for. I am so happy to went with this jacket. I normally wear medium in arc'teryx but I got a small. This jacket runs big and I have plenty of room to layer. If you are someone who falls in between sizes go smaller. I have worn this jacket in -20F and have felt comfortable. It is so warm that it shows you how poor your other clothes are. I can feel the cold in my legs more with this jacket since my upper body is so warm. I also find it works nicely as a camping jacket in the 3-45F range. If you are just standing around a camp spot you will feel like you are indoors. If you get active in these temperatures the jacket will quickly become too hot. I have been a downpour and although the jacket seems like it is getting wet, the inside and your body will be completely dry. I am so happy I found this jacket. It feels like amazing quality and I am confident this will be my winter jacket for the next decade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Here's what this parka really is... 1.1 oz sq yd ripstop nylon and 5.4 oz sq yd Climashield Prism in a lightweight, highly refined package. Arcteryx glues the Climashield to the shell material and has given it the trade name Thermatek. There is no quilting to flatten the insulation which really helps this parka loft up. The fit is roomy but not huge- about a 1/2 to 1 size large i.e. medium = large. The fit and finish is world class. I have no doubt that this parka will perform as a great belay jacket- or just about the best general winter jacket you could ever want to own. In my use it feels at least 25% warmer than the usual 133g Primaloft jacket. But I can use it in sedentary situations when temps are in the 40's no problem. Downsides are a crinkly sounding shell material and occasional poke of an insulation fiber thru the seams. I am curious about the long term durability as Arcteryx recommends hand washing which seems odd considering this thing should be tough enough to survive a front load washing machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Envy of the Taliban I've been back and forth to Afghanistan for 4 years now and every year I'm always trying to find the perfect jacket to keep warm and have failed miserably until now. It's a little on the high side pricewise, but you get what you pay for. The quality of this parka is exactly as advertised. It's a little bulkier than what I thought, but when you're done with your movement for the day, put this on and I swear the cold doesn't bother you (20 degrees so far). If you want a parka that protects you from the cold, windward side of a mountain or a ex-wife's cold stare. This is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Quadro Belay HEATBURN" Parka! Have this piece of Archeopteryx. This is the warmest + lightest mid/outer layer I've ever worn. For -3F Dually Parka is too warm! When -30F outside, I wear this Parka as midlayer under the shell (Arc'teryx of course). So, for the longest and coldest expeditions Dually Belay Parka is the best! My Arcteryx size always Medium: this parka is slightly wider to allow more clothes hook. I love Arc'teryx more and more with every piece I buy! Ablolutely approved! And I love Moosejaw! ;)

What is and isn't covered under the Warranty Policy?
Defects in materials or workmanship are covered for the practical lifetime of the product. Material refers to zippers, buckles and fabrics. Workmanship refers to seams, seam tape and construction. Damage due to wear and tears such as rips, tears, abrasion or UV degradation, misuse or neglect is not covered under Arc'teryx's warranty policy but may be repairable for a fee.

What is covered under the Warranty Policy on Arc'teryx footwear?
Defects in material and workmanship will be covered by Arc'teryx for the practical lifetime of the product. The practical lifetime for footwear can vary drastically depending on the frequency and type of usage. Things such as the wearing of the outsole, frayed laces, nicks and tears can indicate that a shoe has surpassed its practical lifetime. These are examples of wear and tear or damage which are not covered by Arc'teryx. If you believe there is a defect in material or workmanship present on your product, please see follow the instructions on how to send it to Arc'teryx for assessment.

What does 'practical Lifetime of the product' mean?
Although Arc'teryx builds their products to last over extended periods of time, nothing lasts indefinitely. Materials will deteriorate and fade over time and moving parts will wear out. Arc'teryx will cover your product under their warranty policy until such a time that they have deemed the product to be worn out beyond reasonable repair. If the product is showing the signs of its age-for instance, the material has become thin or faded, there are rips and tears, the zippers no longer catch, the cuffs are fraying, or the soles are worn-they will take this into consideration when assessing your product for a warranty request. All gear will suffer from differing degrees of wear-and-tear, depending upon the user. Equipment used by an outdoor guide for 150 days a year will by comparison, degrade faster than gear used by a weekend skier. By taking care of your equipment you will ensure a longer lifetime for your gear. Arc'teryx recommends that you visit their Product Care page for more information on how to wash and care for your equipment.

Will Arc'teryx repair or replace my product?

They have repair centers in both Europe and North America that employ the same custom machinery and techniques that they use to create the original products. If the product is not repairable, or the cost of the repairs exceeds the value of the product, Arc'teryx may, at their discretion, choose to replace the product instead.

What happens if I rip or tear my jacket or pants?
Skis, snowboards, crampons, axes and other sharp equipment will damage clothing and gloves if they come into direct contact with them. Rips, tears, burns and punctures can occur during normal use and while carrying your equipment, and are not covered under the terms of the warranty. To assist you in keeping your product in optimal working condition, Arc'teryx offers a variety of repairs for a reasonable charge. Contact them and they will be happy to discuss your options.

What if I want to have my garment altered or tailored?
Arc'teryx does not offer custom alterations or modifications to their packs or garments at this time. For products made from GORE-TEX® fabrics they suggest using a GORE-TEX® authorized repair facility for alterations. There is a list of GORE-TEX® authorized repair shops in your area on the GORE-TEX® website.

Do alterations void my warranty?

If something should fail which is unrelated to any alterations, Arc'teryx will stand behind their products, provided that the Arc'teryx product is being used as intended. For a list of alteration facilities in your area, please visit the GORE-TEX® website.

How long will it take if I send my product in for warranty assessment and/or repair?
