Arc’teryx has a classic on its hands. The Arc’teryx Therme Parka is waterproof, windproof and very warm, able to handle anything a cold winter can throw at an urbanite. Insulated with goose down, it has a great warmth-to-weight ratio, and Coreloft synthetic insulation is strategically placed at points prone to moisture buildup, so you stay warm even when damp.

The Arc’teryx Therme Parka is available in different colours, and so can be worn in almost any social situation. With its Gore-Tex membrane it is 100% waterproof as well as 100% windproof.
In terms of details, Arc’teryx has done a nice job with numerous, practical pockets, including a very handy passport pocket that fits a boarding pass, perfect for business travellers. The wind flap with press buttons over the front zip offers more protection. The Gore-Tex shell is a rugged weave that gives us confidence it will last a long time.
The hood is ample and also insulated. An insulated hood is a must in cold climates. The collar finishes high when done up and does a great job of protecting the neck area.
Down Contour means the down actually forms to your body shape, eliminating potential gaps for cool air to seep in. The result? Warmth, evenly distributed the length of the jacket. Reduced bulk and movement-friendly features are also found under the arms and at the sides.
The Therme Parka does give a great return on your investment, thanks to the careful craftsmanship and premium materials. As for the cut, it comes in a slightly slim fit and hangs nicely, just the right look for city living.
