Finnish Fox Hood Ruff, PrimaLoft® Gold Eco Insulation, Water Resistant, Windproof

Cold Protection

Powerful weather resistance, strategically mapped windstopper, and purpose-built coverage support system performance down to -70° F.

Advanced Eco-Tech Warmth

PrimaLoft® Gold Eco Insulation is crafted from 55% recycled materials, dries faster than down, and keeps you warm even while wet.

Rugged Protection

70-denier micro ripstop nylon shell and 40-denier CORDURA® ripstop nylon mapped shell combine to provide lasting protection and durability.

The Conqueror of Cold

Crafted to take on some of the nastiest stuff that the polar scene can dish out, the Allta Polar K8 Parka is your suit of armor for the world’s frostiest places. Powerful PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation and carefully mapped ripstop protection keep your heat on lockdown while warding off the elements, and strategic storage keeps necessities close at hand.

PrimaLoft® Gold

Earth-friendly PrimaLoft® Gold Eco Insulation is 55% recycled materials and supports system climate performance down to -70° F. Built to handle moisture, this lightweight synthetic insulation is water resistant, retains heat even if it does get wet, and gets you back to dry faster than down.

The Allta Polar K8 Parka is crafted with bluesign®-certified textiles—verified for ecological safety at every step of manufacturing—and is certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® as free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances.

Weather Protection

A 70-denier micro ripstop shell provides windproof and water-resistant protection while retaining breathability to keep you warm, dry, and sweat-free. Double-layer 40-denier CORDURA® ripstop mapped to key areas minimizes heat loss.

Advanced Hood Protection

Extend your coverage and warmth even further with the insulated hood, and ensure a just-right fit with the adjustable crown cinch. The ruff liner is fashioned from sustainably sourced Finnish fox fur and can be shaped around the face with an internal wire. Attach or detach it with the integrated zipper for a warm and elegant finishing touch.

Storage Galore

Four D-rings and eight pockets provide plenty of space for clipping and stowing accessories. Internal mesh pockets are ideal for drying wet gloves, and an external pocket just behind the wind flap offers access without unzipping. Stuff the whole parka down into the included sack for a quick makeshift pillow.

Optimized Coverage

An adjustable cinch hem with a long backside helps seal out the cold while extending coverage. Softshell thumbhole cuffs slip beneath your gloves, providing a baselayer for your hands and seamless coverage against the elements.
