Finally a Windproof Parka for women! To fully appreciate this you should know what a Windproof Smock is, but in a nutshell it's a really versatile, lightweight and comfortable outdoor jacket that breathes well and still protects you from the occasional rain shower: the jacket you first think about when planning on going outside.
Copied almost directly from the British army article, the original Särmä Windproof Smock has a very loose cut for reasons. A lot of women found the jacket to be desirable in principle but the fit didn't work for them, so we took measures to help: the Windproof Parka is narrower at the shoulders, has smaller sleeves and a roomy bottom. Those are the important changes, but a lot of smaller details have been reworked as well.
65/35 % polycotton. Wash at 40 degrees Celsius. DWR coated for better water resistance, PU coated for windproofing. The whole package breathes still very well.
The Särmä Windproof fabric responds well to treatment with Särmä Fabric Wax or Woly Protector spray. A thorough impregnation with wax makes the garment waterproof. Apply as necessary!
We have listed first the easy size, then the standard ladies' EU size. Lengthwise these are fit for 160-170 cm tall people, i.e. standard European women's height size. The cut is designed for casual use in spring and fall, i.e. not very much room for warm underlayers. If you want more allowance for warm clothes, pick one size up.
Despite being aimed at female users, nothing should stop a man from wearing one.
The sizes are of course smaller than men's usual ones. We recommend measuring your chest, adding 15-25 cm for looseness and comparing to the chart below. For example, a Medium-sized man will likely wear a Windproof Parka in Large or X-Large.
The following chart has measurements of the garment itself:
Once again: the measurements on the chart above are taken from the garment itself, they are not user's recommended measurements.
There's good quality to be found in the PRC, as long as you don't choose the lowest bidder.
