For town or the tundra.

Developed and tested by the guides and dog mushers who trek across the tundra for the annual Fjallraven Polar adventure, the Women's Polar Guide Insulated Parka provides the warmth and toughness needed to handle conditions north of the Arctic Circle, along with enough style to take into town.

The hard-wearing polyamide fabric is backed up by a Hydratic membrane to keep you dry in the harshest snowstorms, and G-1000 reinforcements increase durability to ensure long-lasting performance. Supreme Microloft insulation offers ample warmth without weighing you down or packing on too much bulk, and the long parka fit provides plenty of coverage.

The storm hood is adjustable and features a removable faux fur lining to shield your face when the wind is blowing sideways across the frozen landscape. Multiple pockets give you space to store any essentials, and a D-ring under the right chest pocket can be used for attaching gear during expeditions. The adjustable cuffs and hem can be tightened up to seal out chilly drafts when you're caught in a blizzard, and you can cinch the waist for a stylish feminine silhouette during more casual outings.

It does run large!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

My 15yo Arcteryx jacket is a large, my Marmot down coat is a large, so.... I ordered this in a small! And it fits just right: room for a fleece or sweatshirt, but zips easily and feels great. Plus I love being a 'small' ....
I wanted a very warm, not-down jacket, and this fits the bill. The sleeves are a little long, but then I'm 5'1.

So Warm, Very Big

Agree with the other reviewers, go a size (or two!) down when ordering this jacket. Other than that, love the weight, fabric, cut and everything else about it. Soooo warm.

Love the look

  • Fit: Runs large

This coat is awesome - super cute, incredibly warm, and everything I was hoping for. As others have said, this coat is SUPER large. But if you size down, you'll have a coat you'll love!

This is a great looking coat that's got a lot of weight to it. However, it runs huge!! I normally wear a size S in most brands and I had to size down to an XXS for this one. Definitely order at least 1-2 sizes down.

Very warm and VERY large

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

This is definitely a heavy duty warm winter coat! It's also huge. Size down by a full size at least!
