We will be reviewing and comparing eight parkas for men, by some of the best and most well know brands when it comes to winter clothing: The North Face vs. Geographical Norway vs. Canada Goose vs. Jack Wolfskin vs. Blend.
Parka jackets are warm, cozy and really comfortable. While there are different styles, cuts and designs, they typically come with fur trim on the hood.
