It was such a snowy day today in the city. Secretly, I love the snow and I still get excited every time I wake up and it’s snowing outside. Yes…even in April.
This season I have been wearing this Parajumpers parka and it has been keeping me warm on the coldest days. Last month on my Instagram I shared this post about wearing this coat during an outdoor winter wedding bridal shoot that I was working on. I was outside for SEVEN hours straight on a very cold and windy day (my flowers froze within 5 minutes!!). My body truly stayed warm all day. That was all the proof I needed to know that this Parajumpers Parka is the real deal. As a snow lover (and cold weather hater), I’m super happy to have it.
Parajumpers is known for luxurious Italian outerwear that was inspired by the designers chance meeting with a member of the 210th Rescue Squadron at a bar in Anchorage, Alaska. These Rescue Squadron members, also called ‘The Parajumpers’, are trained to go into the most rugged of landscapes to save lives. Their sturdy gear inspired the design for this and all the Parajumpers coats, most notably with the signature collar fastening hook (seen in the photo below!). I remember having a client meeting a couple of years ago and my client was wearing a Parajumpers coat – I was instantly drawn to the sturdy hardware and yellow pull. The design has stuck with me since and I’m happy to say this coat lives up to its style with warmth and quality.
As I sit here writing this post the snow has sadly turned to rain, so I’m glad I got a bit of snowy frolicking in this morning! Keep warm out there, Friends!
Thank you to Parajumpers for gifting me this coat for wearing and review. All opinions are my own. This style is the Long Bear and I find it fits true to size. Locally it is available at JCY House, Andrews and Due West. Online it is available at LiveOutThere.com and BackCountry.com
