Continuing its heritage as one of the hardest-wearing, mountain-ready outdoors brands around, US natives Woolrich have dropped their Autumn/Winter 2017 Jacket Collection – packed with stylish winter warmers ready to see you through the cooler months.
While the latest collection from Woolrich does feature some tried-and-tested classics, such as the brand’s iconic Arctic Parka, the new collection does also feature some more contemporary designs, such as the Reversible Bomber which incorporates high-performance fabrics to keep you warm and dry during the harshest elements.
But while the AW17 Jacket Collection does keep things mostly simple with understated blues, greys and blacks, there is some room for vibrancy. And we love their Arctic Anorak in True Orange. A shorter version of the iconic Woolrich Parka, the 80% duck down garment features patch flap pockets and handwarmer pockets, as well as a special Teflon finish ensuring resistance to snow, rain and wind.
The iconic Woolrich Arctic Parka, is also still as good as it was when it was first introduced in 1972. Originally designed to protect the thousands of Alaskan pipeline workers who were living for months on end in northern Alaska, the Parka features a 90% duck down, 10% feather fill to keep things nice and toasty.
For you city boys, the use of City Fabric on the iconic Woolrich American parka gives it a touch of contemporary style – perfect for urban wear. Without fur, the garment is padded with synthetic Thermore Evo Down, while handwarmer pockets, internal ribbing on the cuffs, and an adjustable waist and hood protect you from the elements.
The Woolrich Autumn/Winter 2017 Jacket Collection is available now over at the Woolrich Website, where prices start at £290.
