Belay Parka

Black Diamond Belay Parka Reviews

Black Diamond created the Stance Belay Parka for those mind-numbingly cold days when your teeth are chattering and you're seriously contemplating taking up beach volleyball. Featuring ThermoLite insulation, this parka is like wearing a sleeping bag—if your sleeping bag was compatible with a harness and actually offered full use of your arms.

Oversized drop pockets on the inside hold gloves, water, and anything else you might need while belaying, and the drawcord hem can be cinched tight to lock in precious heat. For such a burly jacket, the Stance Belay is incredibly lightweight and compressible, making it easy to stuff inside a pack.

Product Reviews

Good warmth to weight

Great product that keeps you warm, and retains heat even when wet. Not water proof, the the puffy synthetic insulation will keep most of its insulating properties when wet. Pros: very warm, fits will, dual zipper for when warm with a harness, layers well. Cons: doesn’t pack down very small, sometimes the zipper and be finicky.
