I get snowed in near on every winter so I need a coat that is going to cope. I could not find a genuine Parka where I live so thought I would give this one a punt. It is designed in America but I think might be of German manufacture. This is obviously the black one and the lining is also black. It has two side pockets on the outside with popper locks and two hip pockets, also with a popper to close on the flaps.
There are no internal pockets which is a bit disappointing as I expected there to be at least one for mobile phones etc but that is not the end of the World. The shell and lining is 100% Nylon and the stuffing or filling is 100% polyester and the fur trim is also fake - or I would not have bought it. There is a draw string for the waist and also one for the hood. You also get an extra pocket on the left arm with a zip lock and two pen holders which is great for outdoor pursuits. You also get spare buttons and poppers in the zip pocket which is also most welcome.
On the `road test' front this is excellent in the warmth department, almost too warm especially with elasticated cuffs that keep all the warmth in. The hood is super comfy and also very warm and it keeps the rain out too. All in all an excellent value for money coat that I am hoping will see me through a few nasty winters yet to come - recommended.
