The North Face McMurdo III is right up there with the warmest of jackets in this review. In fact, the only contender to edge the McMurdo out of the first place warmth-factor position is the Canada Goose Expedition Parka, which is a thousand dollar expedition parka. At one-third the price of the Canada Goose Expedition, this product is an easy Best Buy choice. There are products we reviewed that may be better all around, or better in wet conditions, but there is no better budget insulator. Check out our comprehensive Men's Winter Jacket review for a full breakdown of all the options in the field.
The McMurdo Parka III has some new color options since the last time we updated our Winter Jacket review. As far as we are able to tell, this is the only update to this parka.
