Warm winter coats are a must in order to withstand the harsh weather and freezing temperatures during the cold winter months. We have looked at numerous options, ranging from those suitable for sports to more casual and even work-appropriate jackets and parkas that you can wear this season.
Well, having too many options is never a bad thing as you can find exactly what best fulfills your requirements and needs.
Today it’s time to look at an anorak, or parka if you’d like to call it that. Anorak, as a term, refers to winter coats that come with a hood, which is typically lined with fur trim, be it faux or genuine fur.
The one we have picked for this single review is Avoriaz, a men’s anorak by Geographical Norway.
Right off the bat, the price is quite reasonable in our opinion, considering that winter coats are expected to last for at least a few seasons and are well-insulated in order to withstand the cold and sometimes even the elements.
Let’s see now this particular anorak’s details and how well it performs.
In today’s article, we will be featuring some new products: a new line of outdoor clothing launched by Geographical Norway called Canadian Peak, which comes with innovative designs at a reasonable price, considering the quality and performance of these products.
From this collection, we have selected several of their best jackets, for you to take a look at.
However, because Canadian Peak is still being updated with new products, we will also keep updating this selection, to feature their newest and best jacket designs. For now, the ones selected are detailed below.
With winter almost upon us, it will soon be time to take out the heavy coats. Parkas are usually the coat of choice and preferably those that come with Down insulation.
Down jackets are like no other when it comes to providing warmth and comfort in the harsh temperature that winter brings, and the coziness more than makes up for the high expensive price tag.
However, with such a quality jacket and especially at that price, proper care and maintenance are key in ensuring that your jacket will last for many seasons and perform as good as new.
In the case of down insulated jackets and parkas, however, this is even more important because down is a bit fussy when it comes to cleaning and caring for it.
That’s not to say that you should wear it rarely for fear of having to clean it often, because if you know the correct steps of how to clean a down jacket, then there is nothing to worry about and not much that can go wrong.
A few weeks ago, we did a guide just for that, so that you can take matters into your own hands and have a clean and long-lasting down coat. You can check it out here.
Now, onto today’s selection, which is that of down cleaners. Why down-specific cleaners are important you can find out in the aforementioned guide, now it’s time to take a look at some of the best and essential products needed to properly wash a down-insulated coat.
When we think of coziness during cold days, hoodies come to mind as one of the most comfortable clothes to wear indoors and outdoors.
In the past we have looked at several hoodies and fleece jacket styles by different brands and today we will be taking a look at some other similar designs.
These are various styles of hoodies, as you will see, and the brand of choice for this selection is Geographical Norway.
You can find numerous different selections from Geographical Norway here on our site, should you want to get acquainted a bit better with the brand’s other designs.
Fabric technologies is where it’s at when it comes to high-performance jackets and outdoor garments. A quick search online will show numerous options, some of which you may already be acquainted with.
On this topic we surely have no shortage of reviews and comparisons here on our site and you can find useful information on several popular fabric technologies, as well as see how some of them compare to each other.
One technology that we have yet to look at in-depth is Helly Tech by Helly Hansen. Similarly to other fabric technologies, Helly Tech, too, is a waterproof and breathable fabric technology that finds use in many outdoor garments, especially jackets.
In some of our past selections we have included several Helly Hansen jackets that utilize the Helly Tech technology, but today it’s time to get a better introduction to this technology and see how it works and most importantly how it performs.
With the weather that is soon to come, wearing proper protective clothing is of the utmost importance. As such, we turn to jackets as the best way to keep us protected. There are a variety of jackets available both locally and online, all with their own specifics and qualities that make them suitable for different types of weather.
When it comes to being protected against wet weather, in particular, those who want the best, turn to jackets that are made of special fabrics.
Gore-Tex is one of these fabrics, which are often referred to as fabric technologies as well. It is the leading fabric technology and has been so for a long time, as it provides the best protection against the elements, while also being breathable and comfortable to wear.
We have looked at Gore-Tex’s qualities and performance in some of our past articles and if you would like to learn more about it and how it compares to other fabric technologies on the market, do check them out.
Today we have picked 8 jackets that are made of Gore-Tex technology, which will keep you dry, warm and cozy in the unpredictable weather that fall and winter bring.
Fabric technologies are not a new thing by any means. They have been around for quite some time, with Gore-Tex being one of the pioneers of these special fabrics.
We have extensively looked at some different fabric technologies that are used nowadays in jackets and other outdoor garments. We have compared them to each other in order to provide a better understanding of how they work and how they affect the performance of a jacket.
One of these fabric technologies that we have looked at before, too, is DryVent™ by The North Face.
Now, you may know this already but HyVent and DryVent are not two different fabric technologies that we will be comparing to see which one is the better option. They are, in fact, the same technology.
HyVent was renamed and redesigned as DryVent a couple of years prior, but at the core it maintained the same functionality principles and performance characteristics.
Today we will be taking a look at how exactly the newer design, DryVent differs from its predecessor and go a bit more in-depth about the technology itself and how it performs, as well as the different types it comes in.
