In early history the parka was a heavy jacket used to stop heat escaping. In the 1950’s, the Mountain Rescue Service adopted it as their official uniform as it protected them from the terrible conditions faced on missions. The original featured an angled map pocket, wooden toggles and oversized buttons.
With explorers and mountaineers like Sir Edmond Hillary in mind, our rendition of this classic garment features side stash pockets to put your hands in on brisk mornings, heavy drill cotton for extra weather durability, genuine thick leather toggles, and custom embossed snap domes for that I Love Ugly twist.
