Show Description

The Aleutian Parka wraps you up warmly for expeditions downtown. The insulation is slimmed down through the hood and arms, and a little heavier around your core. A tall collar protects you from gusts and the rudeness of blowing snow. The removable faux-fur trim gives a traditional parka style, or comes off when you want more urban chic. Lined pockets for your hands and one to stash your phone.

  • Made of polyester with a matte finish on the upper and a subtle herringbone print on the lower, and a 2-layer waterproof breathable PU laminate with fully taped seams.
  • 260g MEC Hyperloft synthetic insulation in the body,180g in arms and hood for freedom of movement.
  • Recycled polyester taffeta lining glides over layers.
  • Insulated adjustable hood has removable faux-fur trim.
  • Separate stand up collar acts as a wind break, even with the hood down.
  • YKK 2-way zipper has storm placket, hidden snap closure and interior wind flap to keep out gusts.

Fabric waterproof rating

The standard test for waterproof fabrics uses a standing column filled with water. The figures given are the water column height. A rating of 3,500mm or higher can be considered waterproof. The higher the rating, the more durable the waterproof fabric will be over time.


Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.

Waterproof with fully taped seams
Fabric active breathability

The rate at which a waterproof breathable fabric expels moisture when the inner surface is moist from perspiration. Values under 8,000g/m2/24h provide low performance, 20,000g/m2/24h provide moderate performance and values over 30,000g/m2/24h provide high performance.

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.

Length Knee-length
Durable water repellency

Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
