Feeling hot, hot, hot… Named after one of the coldest places on the planet the Valdez Parka keeps you warm no matter what!
A rich lightly waxed outer fabric will fight wind, rain and snow while the heavy imitation down (we refuse to use real down as geese have feelings too… and imitations are actually much better in temperature control) provides warmth. The rich outer fabric is a high end Korean canvas we buy from a factory that specializes in durable and technical materials .
Details from this jacket are based on vintage picture from arctic expeditions. The double hood detail was used to give extra warmth and used to be made from sealskins, we replaced this with teddy bear fur… a lot less brutal and just as warm! If you can’t take the heat… simply take it out! The oversized hood will shield you from the elements no matter what. The pockets have magnetic snaps to keep your valuables safe. The pocket lining is a supersoft fleece keeping your hands snuggly warm both in the regular pockets as in the “hang back” pockets that will give you the ultimate position to warm your hands while hanging back…
The Fit is roomy, this is exactly the way we like to wear the parka. If you prefer to wear it fitted we recommend to buy a size down.
