Arctic Winter Parkas That Will Actually Keep You Warm

February 14, 2018

February is here, which means winter is bringing forward its harshest snowstorms and coldest temperatures. If you haven’t already purchased a down parka, you may want to consider purchasing a Canadian arctic jacket or parka to keep you warm. Choosing the right Canadian-made parka can take some care and consideration. A good winter coat needs to be high-quality, provide enough room for you to wear layers underneath, fit your body the right way to prevent heat loss, and look great.  

What Is the Difference between a Jacket and a Parka?

The main difference between a jacket and a parka is the length. Parkas tend to be a longer fitting coat, and because of this, they offer more warmth. A longer coat will cover more of your body and retain more heat. Jackets, however, are often made with a shorter fit, to allow for more movement. The hem on a jacket usually ends at the waist, or just below. Although the area inside the jacket will remain very warm, you may prefer a Canadian arctic parka for the greater surface area it covers on your body.

How Are Arctic Bay Parkas Different from Others?

Arctic Bay parkas are unique from other brands because we strive to create coats that combine luxury fashion and protection from the harshest of Canadian elements. We use materials that are designed to insulate in climates with temperatures reaching -55°C (-67°F). The technical features of our jackets and parkas are inspired by the Inuit people of Canada, who use special techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation, to help them keep warm in these cold climates. Some of the materials we use include Canadian coyote fur and beaver trims, leather accents, 725 down power, lightweight construction with at 70% nylon and 30% cotton blend outer shell, authenticity hologram, YKK zippers, and unique starling characteristics for both men and women. This combination of craftsmanship, quality, warmth, and luxury is something you will only find at Arctic Bay.
