Parka for any kind of weather

    My father used to say that campers should always have parka. It is a protection not only for the body and limbs but also for the head (if there is a hood). Especially now that the weather is unpredictable, at least parka can provide a shield when there is a sudden shower or even rain. At night, parka is surely needed to shield you from the cold. And even when the sun is out, protect your arms from unnecessary suntan. And parka is light and easy to pack.

    ...this is the parka that I use - good for about - 20 degrees.

    I use other coat protection accordingly and I never leave home without my sports umbrella. :)

    I cannot say that I have ever owned a parka. I have had my fair share of big coats but now that I think about it most of them have bene pretty subpar when it comes to shielding the cold and wind. Maybe it is time to make the switch and give one of these a try, and they look warm.

    I have two winter parkas - another one I just purchased recently. It is designed for very cold temperatures and guaranteed to protect me against the elements. The standard winter camping practice is to layer your clothing to meet the environmental conditions. The fur around the head keeps out the wind and provides protection to the natural heat generated from the body. It also helps to prevent snow blindness. I was startled to learn that the "fur" around my hood is coyote. I didn't know that at the time of purchase. Most are artificial.
