I’ve been searching for a military color parka jacket for a while. So I need it to be water resistant and warm for cold New England weather. I went to Zara to return a skirt on NYE day and found my perfect parka jacket by accident! Little did I know, this parka jacket had so many functions. It was the last one in store in size Small. I am always an XS but I couldn’t resist the sale price of $89 (originally $139). It didn’t look too big on me anyways.
I tested it out on a really cold day at 25°F and I was warm, though I did have a Uniqlo heat tech underneath my shirt. I think this jacket is perfect for traveling as well. It’s comfy to wear in between flights at the airport and you can add or take off layers. Best part is it saves space in the luggage. I am definitely bringing this with me to my Japan trip this month.
I wish it was still available on Zara.com but try looking at your local store to see if it’s still around. I also listed other options, some with 3-in-1 functions like this one below.
