A parka from Woolrich bears up the wild. For over 180 years, the oldest American outerwear label understands what’s essential offside the habits: indestructible fibres, excellent craftsmanship and strictly functional design features.
In 1830, John Rich founded Woolrich an American legend: his spinning mill kicked off with prime wool capes, eager to face North America’s extreme winter climate. And it was him who sew zippers on worker pants for the very first time. After his jackets accompanied explorers throughout Antarctica, the Arctic Parka by Woolrich protected construction workers building a pipeline across North America: goose down and duck feathers heat up even in extreme weather conditions and temperatures. Its comfort fit for unlimited mobility, a detachable real fur hood and a two-way zipper are Woolrich’s claim for functional details.
In addition to its well-tested features, Arctic Parka’s latest generation is Teflon-coated. Thus, even oily liquids roll off the fabric easily. Clearly, Woolrich is original outdoor clothing.
