As you might expect the Swedes take keeping warm and dry very seriously indeed. The Didriksons1913 Mens Brisk Waterproof And Insulated Parka is a perfect example. Packed with features that make it robust, highly functional and very presentable, this is a jacket that you will never want, nor need to leave home without.
Finishing details include a detachable faux fur trim to the hood, which when removed exposes a colour matched corduroy trim. The corduroy theme is continued on the cuffs, hem and underside of the large pocket flaps.
On the subject of pockets, the Didriksons1913 Mens Brisk Waterproof And Insulated Parka is positively bristling with them. The large stud flapped lower pockets have micro fleece lined hand-warmer pockets behind them, from which you can access the hem drawcord pulls. If access to these pockets is restricted by a rucksack or harness, fear not there are two more zippered hand warmers at chest height. A Napoleon pocket is sensibly placed inside the double storm flap, so its protected, but you don't have to undo the main, 2 way zip, to get to it. Its here you will also find the media compatibility allowing you to run your earphone cable from the pocket to the hood whilst it remains hidden behind the storm flap. There are also two more stash pockets on the inside of the jacket.
Boasting Didriksons' own 100% waterproof Performance Guaranteed STORMsystem, with fully tapes seams to the outer shell. Added to this is a PFC free DWR (durable water repellent coating). You can be confident that no matter how hard it rains, water won't penetrate.
Two drawcords allow for adjustment of the fitted hood that is generously sized to accommodate a helmet. The synthetic fur will keep the cold wind off your face or can be removed if you want maximum visibility. The main zip and storm flap extend right up into the hood and the inside face has a soft fabric chin guard to prevent chaffing on the zip.
With a mid level of insulation, the Didriksons1913 Mens Brisk Parka is warm without being excessive. It also has a generous cut to facilitate any number of layers beneath.
Cuffs have a knitted inner and adjustable stud fastened outer, this excellent combination keeps out the wind and rain whilst keeping your warmth in.
