Inspired by classic ’60s expedition parkas, the Isthmus Parka has a soft, high-pile fleece lining for warmth combined with a tough wind- and weather-resistant nylon shell with a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to keep you dry and comfortable in damp winter weather. A fully adjustable and removable fleece-lined hood seals out the chill, and the full-length two-way zipper is overlaid with a snapped wind flap for additional warmth. To carry your essentials, there are two chest pockets with flaps and hidden snaps, two flapped pockets with snaps on the lower torso, side-entry handwarmers and an internal zippered left-chest pocket. The sleeves are insulated with warm 60-g Thermogreen 100% polyester (90% recycled), cuffs adjust with snaps and an elasticized, adjustable drawcord waist seals out cold drafts. Fair Trade Certified sewn, which means the people who made it earned a premium for their labor. Lower-hip length.
