When does a jacket become a parka?
Parkas are characterized by their longer cut and have at least two spacious pockets on the front. Often paired with a hood, the style initially originated from the military. That’s why the color palette for most parkas ranges from muted shades of green to dark blue or black. In the skatedeluxe skate shop you can find light parkas for the transitional period as well as thick parkas for the winter.
Lined parkas are suitable on colder days, depending on the model there are also down jackets. In addition, many parkas have a hood for rain protection, which you can sometimes remove with a zipper or push buttons.
