Time for UG AW16 to break out the big guns! There's only one proper way to deal with winter when it arrives and thats with our very serious Janssen Real Down Expedition Parka. Inspired by our collection of vintage expedition Parkas, this is a fully functioning, severe weather, monster of a parka. It's longer in length so finishes around mid thigh and it's fully real down lined and has Borg lining in the hood.
We pushed the development of all construction, fabric and trim to even more extreme quality levels than anything we’ve created before. The shell fabric itself is something very, very special indeed. It's a super heavy weight development of our coated and fully breathable, micro-ripstop kite fabric and is totally unique to UG! The lining is the same matt coated dry touch ripstop kite fabric as the Stone masters jackets outer shell and as always it has authentic outdoor design features and construction to keep out the worst weather you're ever likely to encounter. There are multiple adjusters and oversized shock cord around the hood and waist, and inside the back neck there is a large heavy gauge inner rib collar, that keeps your neck toasty when the hood is down. There are double centre front storm flaps that'll keep out a force 10 and massive patch pockets that you can get your hands in even when you've got your mittens on. Finally on the sleeve there is a secondary heavy gauge cuff rib, just to make sure no snow gets up there. Another important design feature both technically and aesthetically is the addition of high density cotton twill facings on the center from zip guards, storm flaps & pocket flaps.
So as we said this is a serious piece designed to do a serious job, but more important than all of the above is it makes you look like a expedition hero. Chuck on your Redwing and some vintage Cebes and you're away!
