Staff Knowledge Share: Patagonia 3 in 1 Parka
A single jacket that covers all your needs
Next up in our ‘Staff Knowledge Share’ series is the Patagonia 3 in 1 parka, a trusty winter style showcased this season in a dependable tone of forest green and presented by our very own Senior Sales Store Supervisor, Jonny, who is well equipped in the knowledge of all things Patagonia.
Ideal for impromptu adventures in the great outdoors, this design is guaranteed to be your go-to for colder climates each and every year, so without further ado let’s find out what all the fuss is about…
Backstory & Construction
Priced at £549, the Patagonia 3-in-1 parka can, as you may have already guessed, be worn a total of three different ways. The wearer is able to choose between its waterproof shell – worn solo, its thermal padded jacket – also sported solo – or, its slick and insulating parka, built from both the shell and the padded jacket combined. Therefore, if you’re on the hunt for a single jacket that covers all your needs, look no further than this hybrid.
The Waterproof Shell:
Super warm and sophisticated, this 2-layer polyester shell is secured with a zip-through closure (for optimal motion when sitting) and a protective snap flap that provides mountaineering standard storm protection. Breathable and coated with a Durable Water Repellent finish, it’s specifically designed to keep inclement weather at bay while a lining of recycled polyester means that moisture can be easily wicked away and the jacket can efficiently glide atop additional layers.
A 2-way zipped hood can be entirely removed to fit the forecast, while four front pockets, two concealed at the chest, and a set of fleece-lined side entry pockets, all supply plenty of space for keeping your hands warm and safeguarding your valuables.
The Padded Coat:
Efficiently attaching to the shell using its front zipper, this down proof coat boasts a robust recycled ripstop outer and 700 fill power that’s bolstered by goose and duck down insulation which, as you would expect from a brand of Patagonia’s ethical stature, are all reclaimed down products. Furthermore, the coat is Fairtrade Certified Sewn, meaning that the people who produce and manufacture the coat are paid a premium for their labour.
Additional details include a security pocket positioned on the chest, micro-fleece lined hand warmer pockets and an interior zip pocket complete with a carabiner clip-in loop which doubles up as a stuff sack for packing the jacket away within a moment’s notice.
The Insulating Parka:
With the utility-driven details of both silhouettes fused, this hybrid parka is sure to be an indispensable staple in your winter rotation. Characterised by its thermal properties and recycled rendering, the eco-friendly option will, without doubt, breeze through harsh conditions as they draw in this season.
Fit & Sizing
Currently available at Aphrodite in sizes M – XL, the Patagonia 3-in-1 parka is constructed in a regular fit which means you can select your usual size without having to worry about whether it’s going to be too small or a little oversized.
Both the shell and liner component of this garment can be washed at 30 degrees.
