I do not take the words “the best” lightly, but my new Parajumpers jacket is literally the best thing in my winter wardrobe. When they first asked me to review their jacket I knew very little about the brand, but now that I know more about them and their values, and how FRICKEN AWESOME their jackets are, I will never look back.
This jacket is the warmest winter coat I have ever had and for me, that is one of the most important features of a parka. There are a lot of down-filled coats out there that will do the job, but when you put this coat on you will feel the difference immediately. The difference you will feel is that you will feel is absolutely nothing. Meaning that you wont feel any of the cold air on your body. Once I started wearing this jacket, I decided to donate all of my other winter parkas because I had no interest in the others. I’m not even exaggerating, I really did that.
Parajumpers is a luxury outerwear brand created in a collaboration between the Italian designer Massimo Rossetti and Ape. Massimo Rossetti has many years of experience in technical outerwear and was inspired to create Parajumpers after meeting in Alaska with a member of the 210th Rescue Squadron. His main goal was to create an incredibly innovative outerwear collection that could survive in the toughest of conditions.
The men of the 210th Rescue Squadron (in Alaska) are highly trained for extreme rescues and recoveries in the wildest, most remote and hostile corners of the Globe. Whether it be ships adrift at sea, rock-climbers stuck atop a 4,000-meter peak, or submariners sunk at unimaginable depths, these men are called to intervene and these jackets are made to help protect them. They work to save lives and that is mimicked throughout the Parajumpers brand. You can find my jacket (the Long Bear style) in Nordstrom stores across Canada and the US.
One of my favorite things about this brand is the story behind it. I love learning what a brand stands for and I love educating you guys on the same thing. I think people love and appreciate a good story and I am thankful that I get to bring the stories like these to the forefront.
