You're cross-country skiing across Canada's Northwest Territories in a never-ending quest to capture the aurora borealis on film. Or you're being dragged to a playoff game in late December (shouldn't football be over by now?) Either way, the Fjallroven Women's Greenland Insulated Parka ensures that you don't have to worry about perspiration-produced shivers or skimpy warmth.
Durable though technical G1000 Silent fabric lets sweat vapor escape, wards off wind, and can keep quiet under pressure, unlike your little sister. Tiny pores in the fabric strike the balance between breathable and resistant to create a shell for high-energy (or low output) activities; the pores are bigger than sweat vapor, so excess heat and moisture can escape from your body, but the pores are smaller than water droplets, so when it starts to spit, you don't get wet. You can enhance this parka's innate water-resistance by applying extra coats of Greenland Wax.
Polyester insulation adds warmth to this heavy-duty parka to give you layering options. When the weather is sunny, a bit breezy, or tad chilly, this Parka is all you'll need to stay warm throughout the entire game, since your partner insists upon being there for kick-off. If the weather report calls for gale-force winds and skin-freezing windchills, there is ample room underneath the Greenland Parka for a hefty fleece, fisherman's sweater, or a slim-fitting down jacket.
The lengthy hem hits below your hip, and the hood flips up for when the snow sprinkles start coming down. Six sizable pockets adorn the outside of the coat, so you can bring along a camera, energy bars, an extra hat, several maps, and flask, and still not have packed anything in your purse or backpack.
