WARMEST PARKA MADE IN THE WORLD.
Making a statement that you make the warmest parka in the world is very bold, but there are facts to support the statement. The primary ingredient is the insulation, Lamilite that is used in all of our sleeping bags. In 1989 and 1990 we produced sample garments for the oil field workers on the North Slope of Alaska. At the same time we also made parkas for the Alaska State police, the Barrow police department, and LTR Training Systems also located in Anchorage Alaska. LTR Training Systems is one of the most respected companies in the country training people to survive in extreme cold conditions on land and in the water. The feed back from the people involved has been invaluable. The garments were used in temperatures as extreme as -80 degrees F, ambient air temperatures. What was learned, was that if otherwise properly dressed, the L-12 Lamilite was all that was necessary. L-12 is used in our Ultra Light model bag. A large size parka has a weight of 3 lbs. I further found that 3 ply supplex fabric was very efficient as the exterior material. It performs very well as a wind break fabric in the strongest of winds. The fact that the Lamilite does not collapse from the wind aids the fabric. The set in wristlet, full length hook and loop closure along the zipper, fingertip length are some of the features. There are large cargo/hand warmer pockets and large inside cargo pockets. The hood has a removable fur ruff. The zipper is the #10 YKK molded tooth zipper, with two-way sliders, the same as we use in our sleeping bags. It has proven to work at temperatures of-100F. Machine washable and dryable.
