Just because the sun has (temporarily) started to shine, that still doesn’t mean we won’t completely lose our shit when we come into contact with an impeccable piece of parka. Step forward the White MountaineeringGORE-TEX® Mountain Parka which is actually lightweight and fully weather-proofed enough for you to wear all year round (just layer up and down accordingly). This tantalising, technical beauty is made in Japan and constructed from a specialist GORE-TEX® 3-layer material and completely seam-sealed with low-profile printed taping. As you’d expect there’s an incredible amount of attention to detail going on here including a self-fabric chin guard, mag-sealed, waterproof and expandable pockets, articulated sleeves, cuff adjusters and a peaked hood with a hidden drawcord system. It’s not hidden that you can’t find it by the way, just hidden so it doesn’t get all up in your grill when you’re making your way up Mt. Fuji. The cherry on this coat/cake being the tonal branding on the shoulders and sleeves and the eyelet-pierced chevron detail on the back of the neck.
