A short history of winter parka

Winter parka is a traditional option with lots of ancient connections. It has ancient roots in Canada. It was invented by Caribou Inuit. It was made from seal or caribou. Caribou Inuit made this winter outerwear to get both warmth and protection mainly while kayaking and hunting. In order to make the outer shell water repellent, they coated it with fish oil. Previously parka was in form of amauti in Canada. Amauti is designed to carry a child against a female’s body to use body heat and save the child from frostbite, cold, and wind. Generally, mothers or female caregivers used to wear amauti and later male caregivers started to wear it. With days and decades, styles changes and people started to experience various kinds of parkas with or without real fur trim hood. This winter, Alen Cooper is offering trendy parkas for men and women with real fur inner lining and hood.

Now let’s concentrate on how to choose the right parka for you-

Choose it climate-wise
There are different parkas for different climates. Your parka search starts with considering the type of weather you are going to face.

Temperature– If you live a summer based climate, you should go for a simple and breathable parka without real fur lining. Generally, this type of parka has a polyester inner lining and comes with a detachable hood and lots of pockets.

Cold– If you live in a cold country and you can expect snowfall, you need both warm and water-resistant parka. That you can easily purchase from us. We have real fur lining and waterproof long winter parka for women with real fur hood trim. You should pick parkas with YKK zipper closure. This kind of zipper closure protects the wearer from the outside cold wind and saves the inner turbulent without losing the comfort value.

Types of parka insulation

Thinsulate– It gets used mainly in those parkas where bulk is not needed. The synthetic fiber insulation is very tight and holds more heat without losing its water repellent capacity. Thinsulate is not as warm as down fill or synthetic filling.

Wool and fleece– When it is cold and wet outside, you can pick wool or fleece insulation. They are breathable also and keep the wearer fresh all day.
Synthetic fill- Synthetic fill is important to maintain the turbulent capacity and breathability. It also provides a bulky puffy appearance.

Goose down– generally down insulation is not made from feathers but from duck or goose plumage. It is a natural mid-layer. It easily traps air and body air without compromising the breathability. It is accepted as the gold standard for insulation. It is lightweight and too comfortable.
