There are parkas, and then there are parkas. The former are designed for Arctic expeditions, frigid ski hills, and midwestern winters, and the latter are made to own the winter avenues of Manhattan, Berlin, Paris, and St. Petersburg. G-Lab's Explorer II Men's Tech Jacket is styled for the latter but capable of withstanding the same elements as the former, so you don't have to trade style for substance when you brave the snowfall on 5th Avenue or embrace your inner flaneur on a chilly Kurfurstendamm evening.
Winter, depending on where you are, brings heavy snow, icy sleet, or bone-chilling rain, and the Explorer is equipped to handle all three, with a three-later waterproof and breathable membrane, water-repellent Teflon DWR treatment, and fully-taped seams to close off the smallest gaps. It's rabbit-fur-trimmed hood protects your new haircut from the elements, and the adjustable waist and hem give the jacket a trim shape while sealing out drafts at the same time. A soft collar lining keeps your skin comfortable when you've brought the metal YKK zipper all the way up through the high collar, and fleece-lined hand pockets protect your fingers from the cold when you're trying to decide which menswear boutique is worth visiting next.
Inside the Explorer hides a thermal inner jacket, which zips in to provide extra insulation on particularly cold afternoons. It has soft knit cuffs that form a tight seal against your wrists, and a soft feel that's comfortable even if you're wearing shirtsleeves underneath. There's also an internal security pocket for a phone, subtle reflective details for nighttime safety, and an extra large, and bright orange, G-Lab hanger loop, so your new coat never ends up on the floor or draped over the back of a chair.
