Iconic non-slip Beanie Hood
Our versatile parkas feature a non-slip beanie hood which when wearing it, it moves with you when you look left or right. Discreet laser-cut perforations at ear hole level let any sound pass through for clarity of hearing and increased awareness of one’s surroundings. Specifically designed to enhance the audio experience while wearing a hood, our outerwear is pedestrian-friendly and engineered to enhance ambient noise, meaning you can keep the hood on while walking down busy streets and stay aware of your immediate surroundings.
Our versatile parkas feature a multitute of pockets with practical flap closures.
Adjustable Velcro cuffs
To keep the elements out when out and about, adjustable velcro features allow you to tighten and loosen the cuffs.
Taped seams enhance the waterproof protection of clothing. Needle stitching leaves tiny holes in the garment through which water can seep when worn in wet conditions, however, taped seams prevents this from happening.
Soft chin guard
For cold weather comfort. A soft fleece lining inside the collar area at the top of the zipper protecs the most sensitive areas of your face.
Under-arm ventilation holes
The under-arm ventilation holes regulate body temperature.
Built on the science of comfort, TAUROBRAN® is our ground-breaking technology that’s waterproof, ultra-breathable and so light and soft, you won’t feel it’s there. TAUROBRAN® keeps the water out thanks to a unique 3-layer microscopic fiber membrane technology (waterproof rating 5,000mm) and lets perspiration escape to keep you dry from the inside out. Versatile in use, the material innovation is integrated within our parkas and also forms a central part of our TAUROBRAN® sweatshirts and sweatpants.
Integrated Travel system for compact storage
A travel-friendly feature which reduces the hassle of carrying a jacket around when you don’t need it. An integrated packing system enables you to fold down the garment and turn it into a handy pouch which is easy to store away. Pouches equipped with the travelhandle can also be attached to suitcases for a more comfortable journey. Carry it as a bag when out and about or use it as a pillow during long-distance flights.
Laser Cut Perforation
Don’t let design come between you and your experience of the city. The laser-cut perforations on the hood allow the wearer to hear and perceive environmental noise, keeping you connected and aware of the surroundings all the time. Precision laser-cut holes allow you to hear what is going on around you – you can even answer the phone through the hood! The parka also comes with a beanie fit, which means the hood follows your movements and is always a comfortable fit.
