This temporary sunny spell is great and all that but let’s stay focussed on the bigger picture here and remember that we’re in peak big coat buying season. One of the greatest parkas I’ve seen all year is this Batten-Down beauty from Battenwear that looks like it’s been taken directly from the pages of an early copy of ‘Climber’ magazine. Made in the USA from a classic 60/40 mix it has a 720 fill power of 85/15 duck down (85% down, 15% feather) that means it’s lightweight while being super warm. Also available in olive it’s this Autumnal pumpkin orange colour that’s really floating my boat and positioned it straight at the top of my parka chart.
