When To Wear It
Because this jacket is a parka, when it comes to seasons, it is certainly intended for winter. The design is casual, which makes it easy to match and combine with different outfits and clothes, be it either pants or dresses.
It is medium-length, going lower than the hips, which is a good length not only because, let’s face it, looks really good and carefree, but also because of functionality. It is easier to move around in than if it would be with a longer jacket, and it covers the back, offering some more protection against the weather.
The main zipper, apart from being waterproof, is also covered by a snap-button placket, but is a 2-way zipper, making it much more comfortable when sitting down, for example, without having to take off the whole jacket, or zip it all the way down.
The stand-up collar is chin-height and has an attached hood to it, which has a fake fur seam around, removable by zipper. The seam does not stand out and isn’t oversized, like in most parkas, but it is subtle, just to add some more protection during cold drafts.
Another feature are the thumbholes in the inner cuffs that protect the hands, without having to always have gloves on. The outer cuffs are standard, with decorative snap button flaps around.
Pockets are another thing that catch the eye right away, specifically the two oversized side pockets. They have flap closure, but the right one has a zipper over it as well, opening to an extra pocket. There is a chest pocket and mesh inner pockets, which make it easy to carry everything you need with you, while leaving room for the hands as well.
Around the waist there are drawstrings, which adjust the fit of the jacket and at the same time highlighting the body shape.
This parka makes a great daily jacket and is suitable for those who enjoy going on walks, too.
The material is 100% Polyester for the outer shell, while the inner lining is made of synthetic fibers. It has a water column of 5000mm, making it waterproof, which combined with the high breathability, makes this jacket to easily face unpredictable weather.
Despite not being visible from the outside, the inside is quilted, which helps distribute the padding adequately and adds to its ability to provide warmth, and also helps in insulating the jacket.
And since we mentioned insulation, the high collar, the cuffs and material itself, ensure that there will be neither dampness, nor coldness getting through.
The faux fur seam on the hood is high quality and soft and because it is removable, it can be worn appropriately and as preferred.
As we mentioned previously, the style of the jacket is casual, making it quite easy to combine it with different outfits. This is also aided by the color selection, which features beautiful, muted colors that go great with many outfits.
The colors in which this jacket comes are four and they include the classic Black and Grey colors, as well as the colors Navy and Brown.
These colors are quite neutral, as far as jacket colors go, and not only do they combine easily and beautifully, but they are also quite classy colors, adding a touch of elegance to the look.
