    Default Down Parka repair?

    My 10 year old Mountain Hardware parka is looking pretty sad. I got an estimate from Rainy Pass in Seattle for a zipper replacement and refreshing the down. With shipping, I'm better off buying a new parka.
    Does anybody know of a shop in the Anchorage/Valley area that does good work on down parkas? Or am I better off donating it and getting a new one?
    Thanks.

    10 years? It sounds like it lived a good long life and you are probably money ahead picking up a new and far younger model.

    I'd say look for a like new used on flea bay or similar websites.

    I got a like new Marmot 8000 meter parka for $225 shipped. It had a small tear, I debated sending it to marmot for repair, but ended up getting a repair patch from REI for a few bucks and have been good to go.
