Loco Raindrops Posted July 28, 2019 Share Posted July 28, 2019 (edited) So, I am looking for a synthetic belay jacket. It will only get used on climbs so I dont want to go bonkers buying a $600+ parka. The price premium isn't justified for me for the amount of use it will see. My upper layers consist of SW NTS 250 1/4 zip, Arc Fortrez hoody, Arc Proton Ar(hooded,) Arc Alpha SV if that matters. (I like deadbird stuff, it just fits me.) ....when combined this system is very warm to say the least and even in -20s here in Rocksylvania I rarely use this combo unless stagnant. I looked at the Arc Dually but kinda hard swallowing the price tag on it. Im considering the BD Stance... Any other suggestions out there on a synthetic parka that will do the job and not break the bank? I just dont see the sense in going nuts on this item being the limited use it will see. I just want something that works. I prefer synthetic on this layer but am open to down. I may also just rent. As always thanks in advance.
