The Wad Parka
The Wad is our classic winter jacket. Named after the marshlands found along the Dutch coast, Wad is all about maximum protection and a modern aesthetic. For winter 2017 we’ve updated our favourite winter parka with improved features and new seasonal colours.
Find out more about the design details and take a closer look at your new winter parka.
Wad has been designed to withstand the elements. The outer fabric is double layered for extra strength and durability. That stops the wind getting in. The rain is kept out by using a specially treated, water-resistant fabric.
The double-height zippers that run down the front of the jacket allow access to 4 different pockets. The zips are also sealed to stop your gear getting wet.
An Inside Job
The interior of the Wad has a few technical features worth mentioning too. Despite being a long winter coat, the Wad is lightweight and warm. That's thanks to the Thinsulte wadding we've added. Thinsulate is one of our favourite materials for linings because it's water-resistant, so it stays warm inside even when it's wet outside.
You'll also find a bunch of pockets and loops for your headphone cables inside, handy for general day-to-day operations.
Sometimes we want a flashy detail on our jackets, sometimes we prefer things more laid-back. So we’ve developed a velcro branding patch that does just that. Bring some colour and graphics by adding the patch, or keep it clean and monochromatic without.
Each colour of the jacket comes with a tonal patch in the pocket, to be used as you wish.
