New In From Didriksons: All About The Parka

Long, cosy, and totally weather-proof, our Didriksons parkas are the ultimate in winter apparel.


Originally invented by the Caribou Inuits, these are coats with a surprisingly ancient history, designed by those who really know the cold. The Inuits used seal skin to insulate themselves, and doused the skin in water-repellent fish oil, allowing them withstand the icy tundra conditions.

Luckily for us (and the seals!) we have moved on from skin and oil, but Didriksons know not to mess with a classic, using modern fabric technologies to bring traditional dress into the future, yet still retaining that iconic wintry look.

Waterproof, windproof, insulated and breathable, these modern-day Didriksons parkas have everything you need to keep out the chill, all in a range of beautiful, seasonal colours for an arctic-cool look.

With great features such as an adjustable hood, a chin guard for added protection from the wind, hand and chest pockets, and adjustable cuffs, Didriksons have created practical parkas for men, women, boys, and girls, so everyone can step into winter in snug Inuit style!
