Dog sled across Sweden, maneuver the snowblower in Minnesota, or brave the streets of downtown Chicago in mid January in the Fjallroven Women's Nuuk Insulated Parka. You'll be toasty warm while the rest of the world suffers in a deep freeze. When the snow shifts from a pretty dusting to a burly blizzard, the Nuuk's waterproof and windproof shell keep the snow and wind at bay until you find shelter from the storm. The shell of the Nuuk is made from Hydratic, a windproof, waterproof, and breathable fabric. The fabric consists of microscopic pores, thousands of times smaller than a single water droplet, but larger than steam vapor. External water is unable to penetrate the fabric strictly due to size, while steam you generate when working hard may escape, thus creating the comfortable duality of breathable and waterproof. The Fjallroven's own Supreme Micro Loft provides insulation. Similar to down in form and function, Supreme Micro Loft consists an intricate network of varying widths of synthetic fibers, creating a barrier made of air pockets. Cold air can't cross the air bubble border, and warm air has difficulty getting across as well. In short, warm air stays inside the jacket and cold air stays out. A thigh length hem offers a bit more protection for brutal winter winds, and the fleece lined collar and hood keep you snug as a, um bug in a rug. When the winds quiet down and the peeks out, remove the fur trim from your hood and enjoying emerging from your Nuuk cocoon. Two fleece lined hand pockets offer extra warmth for your frozen digits, and hook and loop cuff closures make it easy to keep uninvited environmental guests from sneaking in.
