Patagonia Frozen Range Parka Review [2023 Guide]

Long Story Short: Our Review Patagonia Frozen Range Parka

Hello guys this is Mark Bennith! I got Patagonia Frozen Range Parka at the end of the season in Minnesota and got to test it in a few very cold days (below zero) last year. This coat is very warm and has great fit. I can fit our kid in an ergo underneath it with the buttons buttoned. Collar and hood are big and a little awkward, but in a way that I like the funky look!

Patagonia Frozen Range Parka Hood View
Patagonia Frozen Range Parka Hood View

I was so lucky to buy this last large one on the website at a sale price. The color is exactly what I expected and because it’s a winter gear, I prefer a larger size (I normally wear M) to cover more inside clothes. It’s not heavy but worm, the shell material gives a thick and Wearable feature.

Patagonia Frozen Range is a very stylish and a thigh length parka. I got the coffee color and love the color. The oversized buttons adds the perfect touch. This also has an elastic sleeve to keep cold draft out. Snorkel is the best feature, especially when wind chills and rain hampers your commute. The snorkel hood makes hats and scarves and all the other usual winter accessories superfluous.  

My Personal Experience:

Excellent coverage: Full to hips. The 3-in-1 uses a jacket, not a parka for insulation layer however Patagonia Frozen Range Parka is full length warmth.

Stylish: A lot of compliments on the color, style, and overall composure of Frozen Range.

Warmth: Unless you pack in multiple layers you will not get overheated, but rather you’ll be super comfortable in anything cold

Performance: 2 Layer (2L) Gore-Tex really blocks out the wet! Wind it no match for this hip-length shield either. It is 44 oz, however feels lighter.

Hood: I became a fan of the snorkel hood. If you want it but want peripheral vision then rethink this as you cannot have both. You can also unzip the parka a bit and the hood won’t be snorkel.

One improvement: Two way zippers is appreciated but the bottom one somehow manages to be very difficult to get on track and operate barehanded and essentially impossible with gloves.

I would highly recommend this product before it is gone!

Some Customer Insights for Patagonia Frozen Range Parka

  • I got this parka as a cold-weather coat and decided to have a custom coyote fur hood trim sewn on to it for added crosswind protection because I thought the regular hood was a little lacking. Other than that this parka is perfect.
  • The look of this coat is super cute and the coat itself does keep you pretty warm in cold temps. though, here are some suggestions that would make it EVEN warmer: longer, tighter sleeve cuffs(with thumb loop—this keeps them secure), replace the cell phone pockets with fleece pockets for additional hand warmth, velcro not buttons 🙁 for ease even though the buttons look super cute. Here are some things i absolutely LOVE about the jacket: the hood—controversial, I know, but the mere size of its designed helps keep you warm even when its not on—, the secret wallet pocket left of the zipper, and the sturdiness of the buttons. Y’all did it right!

Conclusion for Patagonia Frozen Range Parka

At first, I thought the buttons might be an issue with gloves. But, I was wrong. It works very well.

The hood has an excellent neck and chin shroud. If you are like me, you get cold in that area. The cuffs are excellent and buttons are no problem for gloves. Just the elastic cuffs seem a bit loose. On top of all that it looks great on!

Once again, Patagonia turns out another great and durable product. Super warm and a medium allow you to layer up as well.
