Hey Ice Festers!  We want to take a second to tune you into a belay parka by Outdoor Research that is perfect for cold, wet, frigid, and snowy days.  The Chaos Jacket by Outdoor Research is one of our season favorites, and is available at a steal of a deal!  But specifically it is A synthetic belay parka, AND is the warmest, lightest and most packable synthetic wet-weather alpine and ice belay parka available. Perfect for shielding from howling wind and cold, damp conditions, and it also shrugs off rain and snow, and the warm, synthetic PrimaLoft® One 170g insulation holds in the heat in even the wettest conditions.  I mean, it’s like they basically designed this jacket for New Hampshire ice climbing.  So if you’re in the market for a belay parka for this winter, we recommend this one, and remember to size up, so it goes over all your layers easily! Call up IME and they can order you one ASAP!
