“The MARS (PCU) DAS Parka - Special by Patagonia that was manufactured for the US Special Forces! For full-on conditions, the DAS Parka is Patagonia's warmest insulated jacket, made with alpine-worthy, high-loft 170-g PrimaLoft® One insulation and a durable, water-resistant and windproof polyester shell. Relaxed fit. The definitive belay parka, used from Alaska to the Alps to the Karakoram, the DAS Parka delivers exactly what the serious storm-battling alpinist needs: idiot proof warmth. Simply put, it sheds snow, blocks wind, and the best-in-class, high-loft hollow-fiber PrimaLoft One (170-g) insulation stays warm, even when wet. The light yet tough polyester quad-ripstop shell fabric is treated with a Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish and is reinforced at the shoulders, elbows and hips. An adjustable, helmet-compatible hood and the tall collar protect your face. Patagonia MARS gear, made for the US Military Special Forces, Patagonia MARS (Military Advanced Regulator System) DAS (Dead Air Space) Parka Special” (webbingbabel.blogspot.com, 2015).
