An extremely well insulated winter parka for professional use in Arctic conditions. Reliability and functionality have been paramount the development of the Women's Expedition Down Parka No. 1 and every stitch of the jacket has been constructed to withstand considerable pressure and protect its wearer against long exposure to extreme cold.The cut is long and it has a deep storm hood with detachable synthetic fur edging for extra protection against bitter winds. The two-way zip is hidden behind a protective flap with buttons that are attached with corded ribbon. All buttons and zip grips are oversized so that they can be easily handled when wearing thick gloves.Several spacious pockets on the chest and lower down have room for a GPS, ski goggles, extra gloves,, and cold fingers can be warmed up in the handwarming pockets at chest height. There are also pockets inside the jacket, as well as a pair of detachable braces that let you have the jacket on without using the sleeves – practical, for example, when shovelling snow or partaking in other hard work when you don't want to risk losing the jacket in a sudden gust of wind.The primary fabric is G-1000 Eco fabric and the padding consists of ethically produced down. The shoulders, sleeves, lower back and pockets are reinforced with G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco and the jacket is lined with nylon. The handwarming pockets and the inside of the collar, against the chin, are lined with warm wool from the renowned cloth mill, Abraham Moon.The fabric and details have been chosen to minimise their impact on the environment and to make it easy to replace exposed sections after years of use.
