"Still the warmth-weight ratio champion"
The new Patagonia DAS parka has come under harsh criticism in some circles for changes that were made this year, and at first blush it seemed that those criticisms were justified, but after thoroughly researching it I think they are entirely misplaced. The first criticism is the reduction of PrimaLoft One in favor of PrimaLoft Synergy. PL One, for all of its touted benefits, has a well-known propensity for losing its insulative qualities after repeated compressions. Going in and out of your stuff sack after one, and certainly after two seasons in the field, will noticeably reduce the warmth of the old DAS. PL Synergy, offers the best combination of warmth and durability at the present moment among the PrimaLoft family of products. . If one were to look only at clo values, the new DAS would seem to be 8% less warm (Synergy is 80% as warm as PL One, so 120 grams * .80 is 96 gm, plus 60 gm PL ONE in the core yields 156 gm PL One equivalent), but Patagonia decided to reconfigure the jacket to a more tapered fit, thus making the jacket more snug and correspondingly more warm (due to less space to heat up). It is hard to say with certainty, but for the sake of argument I will estimate that the new DAS is 4% less warm than the old DAS, but the jacket is now 15% lighter too! So you have given up 15% weight for 4% less warmth! Not a bad trade-off at all. And in two years from now this script will be flipped; the new DAS will be warmer. There is yet another consideration. According to an article at Cold Thistle, in order to keep the garment more breathable you want the outer insulation to have greater gaps between the fibers. That is precisely the case with PL Synergy in relation to PL One. If this theory is correct, then the new DAS is also more breathable, and with its reduced weight, it is actually a greater performance jacket that was before (i.e., PL One is the first layer in the core-area, with Synergy wrapped around it). I can tell you that I have been out in 27°F temperature with no shirt on and I was toasty. That's pretty good for just bare skin. And with OMC, I can buy them without sales tax too! I love the new DAS so well I bought two of them!

"light and warm"
I like the fit, roomy but not bulky. Very warm. Love the Viking Blue Color. I am 5"8"/185lbs- usually things that fit in the chest are way too long in the arms, Patagonia seems to fit me better than most other brands and with the Large I have plenty of room for layering but it doesn't feel bulky at all. The hood adjustment is not great but it stays on my head fine without any problems. The DAS is a great value. Also, OMC is great...

"the warmest jacket"
Hi, The DAS jacket is the warmest jacket I have owned. I am outside without heat for 30 hours each week. I usually wear an old LL Bean Wardens gore-tex jacket over the DAS jacket. Of course I wear insulated pants over heavy corduroy pants. I wear Ecco 3 season Track two boots with heavy socks. The only boots that fit my feet. I am wearing Eddie Bauer first ascent gloves. This is the coldest December on record in Maine, and I am toasty warm. I have to unzip both jackets when I get moving even if it is zero degrees. Frank
