It’s cold in the artic – and it was just as cold in 1972, when this Woolrich Arctic Parka first appeared. And this is an exact replica of that coat, which is now back in the shops.
As you might have guessed, it was made for the Arctic conditions (more specifically with the Alaskan pipe workers in 40 below temperatures), with 100% goose down, polycotton shell, two handwarmer pockets, two button fastening outer pockets, one internal pocket and drawcord waist. There’s also an adjustable fur-trimmed hood with velcro throat tab. It’s available in navy (pictured) or khaki.
All that detail does come at a price – expect to pay around £380. But be safe in the knowledge that you’ll be the warmest person at the bus stop.
