Where To Buy The Geographical Norway Belissima Parka
Here is a list of the various online shops from different countries where you can purchase the jacket:
When To Wear It
We’ll be starting with the type of weather this jacket is best suited for. Seeing that it comes with a water and wind-repellent shell, this jacket is able to withstand both dry and rainy conditions.
If you happen to get caught in a storm or it is heavily snowing, then you should opt for a waterproof outer layer. However, for mild rain and snowing, you are good to go. When it comes to windy days, on the other hand, you have nothing to worry about.
Both the outer shell and insulation will make sure that you remain warm and cozy the whole time. Along with them, the faux fur trim lining the hood adds another barrier against the wind and protects your face.
Also, the high collar and adjustable waist prevent the cold from getting through from the top and bottom of the jacket.
As for the design itself, this is a casual, yet very elegant parka, so you can wear it anywhere. And since the outer shell is also highly durable to different environmental conditions, this is a good camping and outdoors’ jacket.
We went over the collar and hood, so let’s continue with the rest of this jacket. It comes with elastic sleeve cuffs and padded sleeves, which will keep you fully insulated and are comfortable to move around in. There are two side pockets with zipper closures and lined, so the hands can be warmed up quickly.
Since this is a long parka, to make things easier, it comes with side zippers for when you will be sitting down. This way you won’t have to be uncomfortable or take off the jacket completely.
The adjustable and cut waist is a design feature that is both practical and also adds a feminine touch to this parka. Lastly, it has reinforced elbows and double-zipper closure in two layers, for added protection.

The material on the outer shell is 100% Polyester and so is the inner lining. Polyester is a great jacket material as it is quite resistant and withstands different weather conditions effortlessly. It is also breathable, preventing overheating during long wear.
The faux fur trim is a blend of 80% Polyacrylic and 20% Polyester. It looks and feels just like the real thing and it is a great choice for those who’d rather not wear real fur.
As for the padding, it is 100% Polyester and it’s distributed on the parka evenly, held in place by the loose quilting.
Geographical Norway is usually very minimalist in design and color choices, as they prefer a more classic look for their casual and everyday garments. Such is the case with Belissima, which comes in 3 colors:
User Reviews, Feedback & Opinions
Since this is a recent launch, the reviews are limited, but they are enough to give us a good idea on what to expect with this parka.
First off, the quality of the fabric is indisputable. It looks and feels great, plus it is very comfortable to move around and sit while wearing it. The double-zipper closure comes in handy, since you won’t have to take off the jacket to sit down, or when you’re indoors.
It provides plenty of warmth without having to layer heavily underneath and it is also quite water and wind-resistant, according to the online reviewers.
The cut waist is a great touch as it really helps create a feminine and elegant silhouette. You don’t have to compromise style for comfort anymore!
As for the minor issues you might encounter is the size, as always, and the fact that the hood is a bit too spacious for some. But this is not too major to worry about.
There are no surprises with the Geographical Norway Bellissima jacket. You will get exactly what you were promised, so pamper yourself this holiday season with this beautiful parka.
