It’s parka time

It’s that time of year again when we all need a good warm parka for those icy cold mornings.

My Woolrich parka (above) was a Christmas present 4 years ago and it still looks great. I wear it all winter and it’s especially handy on those cold school morning runs. It’s the first coat that I grab when the weather is bad, it keeps me completely dry and sometimes only need a T-shirt underneath it’s so warm. They are expensive, but it was a really good investment piece and I’ve definitely had great wear out of it.

I’ve had a good look online for some cheaper alternatives, I’ve also linked a similar Woolrich coat in case you fancy treating yourself for Christmas.

There was quite a few to choose from, so I’ve just picked out 10 of my favourites below.
