Parka jackets are warm, insulated and usually waterproof jackets for the depths of winter or extreme cold.
Featuring warm hoods, often with fur or faux fur trims, parka jackets are stylish but fully functional jackets for outdoor activities. Parka jackets are extremely popular in the winter due to being perfectly insulated against the cold winter winds but are also hard wearing coats for hiking and walking when heavy rain or snow and wind howl. Equip yourself with a technical parka jacket for hiking and trekking or a fashionable parka for everyday wear and be ready any cooler outdoor conditions you may encounter whether home or abroad.
Didricksons, Berghaus, Jack Wolfskin and other top outdoor brands all supply a range of great Parka Jackets for cold weather climates but picking the perfect parka for sub zero temperatures can be a hard task if you don't know what you are looking for. Searching for The right waterproof jacket for the adventure or an Insulated jacket that is more ethical than Down feather can be seriously hard especially with so much out there on the market.
The classic men's parka has a relaxed shape with practical reasoning behind it, allowing the wearer to layer up underneath it without looking overly bulky or puffy. This means whether you go for a longer length parka coat, or keep it cropped to the hip, you shouldn’t have to be faffing with too much space when it’s zipped up. The length of the arms should also fall on or just above or below the wrist line, keeping you from looking like you’re wearing a jacket that is too small for you! Keep the length of the winter coat just right by ensuring it doesn't come below the knees as this will cut your body up and make you look top heavy. The parka is timeless and holds a classic style that will never go out of fashion so if you choose to buy one – it is an item for life!
