Winter in a continental climate often brings a mix of weather: rain, sleet, snow, sun, ice, bitter winds, hail, or some combination thereof. Be prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws your way in the Patagonia Women's Vosque 3 in 1 Parka. The combination of a shell and zip out liner gives you three different jackets for the price of one. Wear the liner alone when you all need is warmth. Wear the shell by itself on the freak February day when the temperature teases you with hints of an early spring. Or, snap the hood on and zip the liner and shell together for waterproof warmth on those cold snowy days you find yourself waiting for the train or scraping off your windshield. Patagonia's technical features create unparalleled value in this parka. Made from 90% recycled polyester, the eco friendly Thermogreen insulation in the zip out liner provides low bulk warmth even when damp. The shell is crafted from a luxurious tweedy nylonpolyester blend that's treated for water resistance. When joined together, Thermogreen and a DWR treatment protect you from water, wind, and cold, all for the price of one jacket. Don't worry, though design details were not sacrificed for performance, the Vosque Parka sports a distinctly feminine silhouette. The shell has front darts, a centered back seam, and a yoke at the shoulder for a contoured shape. The zip out liner has princess seams and front darts for a ladylike look. An adjustable hood snaps onto the stand up collar so you can hunker down when the wind kicks up. Cut to hit above the knee, both the shell and the liner warm more than just your core to help you withstand the cold longer.
