Description

Show Description

This insulated parka helps you combat the wet, dark days of winter. When you're venturing out to celebrate the winter solstice or just keeping warm at the bus stop, reach for the Northlink Parka. The waterproof shell fabric sheds sleet or rain, and an insulated hood shields your ears from cold gusts and blowing snow. Roomy pockets store gloves and your toque. New reflective touches on the cuffs help make you more visible at night, and you can tuck them inside during the day.

  • Made of nylon with a waterproof-breathable PU coating. Seams are not taped so water could sneak in if it’s raining hard.
  • Lined with recycled polyester that glides over layers.
  • Insulation is synthetic Hyperloft that's 50% recycled.
  • 2-way front zipper has a storm flap to eliminate drafts.
  • Hood is fully insulated and shockcord-adjustable.
  • Lots and lots of pockets: 2 patch pockets, a chest pocket and 2 zippered hand pockets outside. Secured zippered pocket and 2 drop-in pockets inside.
  • Button-adjustable cuffs have hidden reflective details: invert the reflective band to go incognito or leave it exposed for nighttime visiblity.
  • Drawcord at hem helps seal out cold.

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.

10,000mm
Waterproofness

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 without 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.

Windproofness

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.

Windproof
Length Below hip
