With a string of cold and wet months on the horizon, I recently turned to the Montbell Permafrost Light Women’s Down Parka with hopes that it’d become my go-to winter jacket. I made the right choice.
Since I switched to the Permafrost Light Down Parka, I’ve put it through the gauntlet: bitter temperatures, ice-cold rain, and brisk wind during the dreary winter months in the Sichuan Province of China. It has performed flawlessly in the face of every challenge and validated my decision to step up my down jacket game.
My first two months in this jacket confirm exactly what I’d hoped: It’s lightweight, comfortable and boasts a well-engineered set of features – all while offering incredible warmth, durability, and water-resistance. I do have a few minor issues with it, however, which I’ll address later in this review.
So, keep reading to see exactly what makes the Montbell Permafrost Light Women’s Down Parka such a versatile jacket. It has been my cozy refuge during these last few cold and wet winter months, and I look forward to weathering more storms with it in the future.
