The Mute Parka
Designing the Mute parka was an exercise in stripping the winter jacket down to the essentials. Our brief was to stay true to the maxim form follows function. We specified high-grade features to provide all-round protection with the least amount of fuss. It's a solid defence strategy for whatever winter might throw at you. Read more below.

The clean silhouette of the Mute jacket is built for performance. The high hood and long length of the jacket ensure you can handle winter conditions comfortably. In keeping with the jacket's minimalist aesthetic, we've added some subtle Ontour branding on the left arm.
A checklist for your winter jacket: keep out the rain, provide protection against the wind and lock in heat to maintain warmth. The Mute does all of the above.
Water-resistant fabric provides a shield to the elements on the outside. Inside, we'd added Thinsulate wadding. It's high performance and a very clever material indeed. Given the fact it's 1.5 times warmer than down and thinner than standard polyester insulation, it's definitely punching above its weight.
Keep your valuables safe by making use of the Mute's interior pockets. They'll stay dry thanks to the weather-proof taping that runs down the full length of the front zipper. This prevents water and wind from accessing the interior. The solid YKK zipper is as durable as they get and has a small storm flap at the top to keep it dry and easily accessible.
