Penfield Parka

Selected the 23 March 2012 by Romano as "the garagerocker"

Spring has finally come! We can now start thinking about mid-season pieces. When the weather isn’t hot enough, at the very heart of the “moonsoon season”, the most adapted clothing piece you can get is a parka. And Penfield is a sure bet in such field. The Vassan Wax parka is highly resistant: waterproof as windbreaking, made of Penfield’s classic Hudson Wax Cloth, 65% polyester and 35% cotton, wicking moisture from the body. To top it all, the parka’s design is just perfect, mixing flat chest pockets, button and metal clip closure with a gingham waxed coton body. It could remind of Nigel Carbourn’s Cameraman Jacket, actually those features are generic for this kind of jacket. The only thing is, this one is 10 times more affordable with a guaranteed quality!
