A warm, cosy parka coat should be a staple in any British winter wardrobe. Parkas provide luxurious warmth in the coldest conditions, so they're a natural choice when it comes to bracing yourself against icy arctic blasts, whether you're in the frozen wastes of Svalbard or the biting cold of the high street. Fur-lined coats were first worn by the Inuits of northern Canada, and they soon became an essential for polar expeditions, but their practicality and enduring warmth has made them a true winter favourite. Our stunning collection of women's parkas and men's features hard wearing, timeless designs, well insulated for extra warmth and perfect for everyday use when there's a chill in the air. Featuring durable yet stylish fabrics, roomy hoods and plenty of versatile features, a parka jacket will let you brave any conditions that deepest winter can throw at you.
