I plan to use this in Fairbanks, Alaska during the winter and will repost my review. Just from wearing it under 5 minutes, I can tell it will do the job in extreme cold conditions (-40° F/C) with proper layering. Hope to just have to wear this over a t-shirt when it's just under 0° F, as someone else had claimed about this parka.

**Update Winter 2016 - By far, the best $500 I've spent on any article of clothing.
Living in Fairbanks, Alaska, I never have to worry about how cold it is outside with this jacket. When I say never, I mean it. I've been outside in -20F(-28C) and didn't realize it until my face and fingers started freezing. The inside pockets are perfect for any size gloves or gear you'd want to carry for quick access. I wear it every day with only a T-shirt or long sleeve shirt and rarely ever zip up the front. I never have to layer except where the coat doesn't cover.
I won't make a Pros and Cons list on this jacket, because the only con would be that it's too warm. If you live some place that rarely drops below freezing, I would not recommend this to you. This is parka meant for expeditions into arctic type conditions. Parkas like this aren't supposed to "breathe", which is why never zip the front up. But for those days when I have to be outside in -40F and walk to a store because I forgot to plug in my car, this parka will keep me warm without even trying.
Thats when i happened to come across this at a gear consignment store. I bought it after the worker told me it was the warmest jacket he ever used. I now fully agree with this statement. I have been warm with this and a long sleeve baselayer down to 0°F. Below that I like to layer a bit more underneath but if I throw on my atom AR under this I think I would be good down to -40 or so.
This jacket runs large. I am a arc'teryx junkie and own around 15-20 jackets/sweaters from them. Everything I have ever tried on was best for me in Medium except this jacket. I got this in small and I bet even XS would fit me well. It is designed to fit big so you can layer but it still runs large. I can easily put a atom AR/sweater/baselayer under this small without any issues. I tried on the medium once and it was ridiculously big on me. I highly suggest getting a size down.
The pockets are well made and have a soft lining. When you put your hands in the pockets they feel very soft and it instantly cuts the cold away.
The hood is well designed and works well with a helmet or without.
The area around the chin and neck has a soft lining so it feels comfortable zipped all the way up.
The sleeves are perfect like many arc'teryx jackets. Fits great around the wrist and doesn't let wind in. No rub or discomfort
THe only thing I can say negative about this jacket isn't really a negative of the jacket. Once I started to use this jacket it showed how inadequate other pieces of clothing were. Before buying this I would wear patagonia northwall pants with merino fleece longjohns. I thought it was the best combo and was very happy with how warm my legs felt. Once I started wearing this jacket suddenly my legs felt cold. Same with my hands and face. Your core and arms are so warm that it makes you notice the cold in the areas not covered by the jacket. I guess this is a nice problem to have.
Overall it is a wonderful jacket and my search for the ultimate winter jacket has ended. Like mentioned in another review I don't think this jacket is for everyone. It is just too warm for a lot of peoples needs. It is too warm for city use even in very cold cities. Once you get in your car or a store you will start to overheat.
Its not designed to breathe a lot so its not made for heavy activity either. It is best for doing little activity or none in freezing weather. If you winter camp, ice climb, winter photography or anything else which finds you standing in very cold weather for long periods of time then this jacket is for you.
I used this while ice climbing, while standing under running water, in the rain, in below zero temps and climbing.
This is my favorite cold weather jacket. Its big enough to have layers on underneath, spare golves and even shoes underneath. The zippers are big and easy to use and its very durable. Most jackets like this end up with duct tape on them and I have not had that happen with my Dually!
