MammutKira IS Down Parka - Women's

Winter warmth.

Whether you're embarking on a long winter hike or taking the dogs out for a quick snowshoe through the local land trust, the Mammut Women's Kira IS Down Parka offers furnace-like fervor. Designed specifically for wintry pursuits, the Kira features the extremely tough yet lightweight Pertex Microlight material that's equipped to handle years of abuse, while the 650-fill down insulation is super lofty for unrivaled warmth, even on the coldest days. However, should you start to warm up, the two-way front zipper offers easy, on-the-go temperature regulation. On the other hand, should the winds start to pick up and snow begin to twirl, the Kira's hem is fully adjustable for a snug, sealed-in feel and the internal hand gaiters further safeguard you from persnickety drafts. Not to mention, the two hand pockets keep necessities like a map or smart phone close by.

Warm and true size!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

The jacket is warm and very stylish, and the lenght is just perfect, but the jacket doesn’t run small like other reviews said. I have a couple of mammut jackets and always wear size S, since this one was mark as “running large” I chose the XS but it's too tight for me, specially in the hips, and really loose in the shoulders, so I can’t put a layer underneath because it looks weird... I’m thinking in sending it back...

Really warm, frustrating zipper

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is the warmest coat I've ever owned. I've had a couple of chances already to try it and I was actually hot enough to need to unzip. I think this coat will do just fine when January comes. However, the zipper is stupid. I'm not sure what it is, but I have a hard time getting it to zip sometimes and it gets stuck at the bottom occasionally when I unzip it. I thought about sending it back, but I bought it on clearance and my size in the clearance colors is gone. I love the fit and the warmth enough that I'll just deal with the zipper.

Unbelievably warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: XS

First things first this jacket has a crazy amount of warmth! The length of the jacket is perfect covering your bum too. The shape of it around the waist was very flattering but the only thing I didn't like about the fit was by the shoulders. It did seem a tad bulky. The sleeves with the gaiters and thumbholes are perfect to keep your sleeves down and add a little warmth to your hands if you're not wearing gloves. Mammut is always fantastic. Get this!
PS: size down

Does this jacket have any wind or water resistance? Don't see anything about DWR or waterproofing in the description.
