The Arctic Patrol Modular Parka has been developed in collaboration with scientists who live and work in the harshest arctic climates. Based on their experience, this parka has been adapted to perfectly protect against such weather conditions. A modular 3-in-1 system, this parka provides a high degree of versatility and customisation without compromising on performance. It comprises three highly functional layers, including a warm and soft insulator jacket made with Primaloft Gold body-mapping insulation and a specially developed waterproof and breathable stretch shell. The outer layer delivers durable, heavy-duty waterproof synthetic insulation with a weight of 200 grams per square metre, a material that is preferred by scientists working in the Arctic as it provides warmth in both dry and wet conditions. In addition, the outer layer has been designed with waterproof material particularly in exposed areas, while other areas feature breathable fabric to ensure non-restricted freedom of movement at all times. The three-layer system of this parka allows users to wear them separately or mix and match them individually with each other into six different combinations for optimal warmth and functionality in any situation and in even the harshest weather conditions.
Statement by the Jury
The Arctic Patrol Modular Parka embodies an impressively complex and practical jacket system. Boasting an iconic design, the parka’s perfect functionality makes it ideally suitable for use in cold climate zones. With sophisticated details such as oversized pockets, zips that are easy to use even at extreme temperatures, and a sophisticated tunnel hood, this parka has emerged as a highly consistent product advancement.
