Parkas were first used by the military. But nowadays the jackets look very “plain-clothed” and are extremely popular with outdoor, nature and hiking fans. And also with people who first and foremost want to be dressed in weatherproof clothing for town, walks or short strolls.
Casual, with a style radiating independence and a touch of freedom. After all, parkas go perfectly with all kinds of boots, jeans or outdoor pants and any number of winterproof accessories. The right look for all outdoor enthusiasts who also enjoy being active in winter.
Our parkas and outdoor jackets are completely weatherproof thanks to the mTEX 10.000 membrane as it makes our versatile winter jackets windproof, waterproof and breathable. And they come with effective insulation. If you’re highly active, then we recommend models with the slightly thinner mTHERM Light version. If you like it nice and cosy, then you should go for the thicker mTHERM padding.
When it comes to the layer underneath, you need to look at two criteria: your heat sensitivity or activity level and your preferred look. If you’re physically active and don’t freeze that quickly, then you’ll be ready for anything with a casual check shirt or a thick fleece pullover. If you prefer to take it easy, then you should opt for thicker fleece pullovers and jackets. And when it gets really icy, then you can wear first-rate insulating clothing such as our Notos jacket or vest. The high-quality PrimaLoft® insulation is just as good as down. But with the additional advantage of being quite insensitive to moisture.
