Woolrich 70s Arctic parka

ShinyMedia Clothing Leave a Comment

A winter coat in every sense – this Woolrich Arctic Parka was originally developed in 1972 for the Alaskan pipeline workers, who had to work in temperatures as low as 40 below.

This is an exact replica of that original parka, with 100% goose down, polycotton shell, two handwarmer pockets, two button fastening outer pockets, one internal pocket and drawcord waist. There’s also an adjustable fur-trimmed hood with velcro throat tab. And it’s available in navy (pictured) or khaki.

All that detail does come at a price – expect to pay around £380. But that money does guarantee you warmth whatever this winter may bring.
