Solus Parka womens
This product is sold out
If you're looking for a stylish warm and waterproof jacket, you can stop now.
The Solus is a classic parka, given a makeover in Finisterre's functional yet stylish fashion. As you would expect, both outer shell and filling are part-recycled, which in combination with a PFC free water repellent coating, make the Solus their most sustainable waterproof to date. From these guys, that is some going.
The fully waterproof and breathable Pertex has a matt look. Despite the water repellent coating, it looks more like a regular cotton jacket than a nylon waterproof.
The elements are firmly relegated outside, thanks to the 10,000 HH rated shell and taped seams all round. Extra waterproofing duties are handled by a pair of large, and rather fetching, storm-flaps over the pockets along with a poppered stormflap over the zip. Poppers also feature on the cuff adjustments, perfect for cinching tight to stop the wind whistling down your arm whilst hailing a taxi.
Insulation is thanks to 40 g/m2 recycled Permaloft filling throughout, including the hood to keep your head cosy. The hood does away with the traditional fur lining, replacing it with a subtle soft peak and rear draw-cord adjuster for those blustery days. An added internal waist draw-cord can be used to pull the parka in tight, without affecting the line of the outer shell.
Naturally for a Parka, the tail is longer, providing much needed protection from night bus seats and salt lashed pebbles of Brighton beach.
And that's it. Stylish. Sustainable. Simple.
