What is the Patera Parka?

The Patera is perfect for cold, damp conditions, much like our UK winters (and autumn, and a bit of spring). It features a fully waterproof Gore-Tex membrane, a goose down and coreloft mix insulation and a tough yet stylish and sleek design to blend in with everyday life. It's casual enough to wear in and around town and to frosty rugby matches, yet smart enough to wear out to dinner on a cold evening. 

What is it made of?

Insulation: Starting from the inside, Arc'teryx equip the Patera with a mixture of Coreloft and 750 fill-power goose down, providing plenty of warmth for cold commutes and trips into town. Areas which are exposed to moisture such as the front of the mouth and under the arms are treated to Arc'teryx's synthetic Coreloft insulation, while the rest of the Patera gets lightweight and super warm goose down. 

Outer fabric: Surrounding all of this toasty insulation is a 75D nylon outer fabric coupled with a fully waterproof Gore-Tex membrane. The Gore-Tex membrane provides reliable water and windproofing, while the durable outer deals with the knocks and scrapes of everyday life.

What are the features? 

The feature list is small admittadly, however you get all the essentials. Soft internal cuffs wrap around your wrists and seal out cold drafts, while a two-way zip allows you to ventilate or simply open up the jacket if you'd like to sit down but don't want to take it off completely. Pockets wise, you're supplied with two large hand pockets and one internal chest pocket, ideal for a phone or keys.

How does it fit?

The Patera Parka fits into Arc'teryxs 'Regular fit' fit block, which means that it's got a a more general fit then a 'trim' fitting piece. This means that even if you're wearing a chunky knit jumper, you'll still be able to easily slide this on. The Patera is tapered in at the waist, giving you a very flattering sillouette.

How Should Your Insulated Jacket Fit?

Insulated jackets are pedantic little things. Too tight and you'll compress the insulation and limit the warmth capabilities of your brand new jacket, too loose and you'll spend hours warming up the dead space inside the jacket. Getting the correct fit isn't just about aesthetics, it will determine how warm you are. 

The Incorrect Fit

Too loose: A jacket which is too loose will keep you relatively warm, however it will take far longer to do so and will waste large amounts of your precious energy. An insulated jacket works by trapping the natural heat that your body gives off in the fibres of the insulation; this creates a micro-climate inside your jacket, keeping you warm and toasty. If your jacket is too loose, heat will be able to escape through the hem, the sleeves and the neck of the jacket; it's a little like sticking the heating on in your car with the windows cracked open - it will heat up, just incredibly slowly.   

Too tight: A jacket which is too tight is arguably worse than one that is too loose. If your jacket is far too tight, the baffles can compress to a point where the insulation can't loft effectively, limiting the amount of warmth it can trap. Essentially, it won't work! 

The Correct Fit
It's a tricky one to explain, but it's somewhere in the middle. You've first got to consider how many layers you'll tend to wear underneath; will you have just a t-shirt then the jacket, or possibly a baselayer, midlayer and then the jacket? When you've figured out your layers and you've popped your insulated jacket over the top, you shouldn't have any dead space inside. The cuffs and hem should be comfortably sealed around your waist and wrists with room to move. You should be able to lift an arm up above your head without the hem of the jacket lifting more than an inch or so, and the sleeves should be long enough that when carrying out the same motion, they aren't mid-way up your forearm. Your shoulders and chest area should have enough room so that your hands can touch behind your back without feeling restricted. 

Additional Information
Lastly, consider which activites you'll primarily be carrying out while wearing the jacket. Are you primarily using it as a winter climbing piece, or an everyday/dog walking jacket? You'll find that technical climbing jackets tend to feature a shorter cut, while urban and casual jackets feature a longer cut to offer additional warmth with less mobility.
