Woolrich Arctic Parka
I live in Boston which isn't in the Arctic Circle…
I live in Boston which isn't in the Arctic Circle but we do have some cold weather. Some winters, this coat does not come out of the closet but when it gets real cold 15F and below this is the parka to have. Mine is from 1990 and is from the era when Woolrich had a couple of goose down farms in America and is all goose down.
Last year and on Ebay, I bought the Woolrich Arctic Jacket which is the shorter version and 550 duck down. With my 12 year old playing hockey, it is the best.
Great product made for the people that worked the Alaska Pipeline, it's a shame that they do not make it any longer.
There are a lot of people that live in the vicinity of the Woolrich Factory outlet store that bought a bunch of these jackets and parkas and are now offering for sale on ebay.
Here's what other sites are saying:
In 1972 Woolrich introduced the original Arctic Parka, the quintessential down parka designed to handle the most extreme temperatures. It was originally designed for workers constructing the Alaskan pipeline, where the average winter low is minus twenty-five degrees Fahrenheit. The Arctic Parka became very popular among recreational users braving cold temperatures, and over the years it has gained popularity throughout the world, where it remains a fashion icon. The generously pocketed Arctic Parka provides toasty coverage from the detachable genuine coyote fur hood ruff to below the hips. Ribbed storm cuffs plus adjustable cord waist and hem stop wind in its tracks.
