The Best Men’s Parkas for Braving the Cold

When the first (or second, or third) blizzard of winter starts bearing down on you and there’s still work to be done, you don’t really have a choice — you need one of the best men’s parkas on your back to enable you to get out there and do your job (whatever it may be).

The parka is the undisputed heavy hitter of any winter outerwear lineup — the type of coat you break out when the weather demands it. Often filled with down, a parka is meant to keep you warm in even the coldest of temperatures. Additional weatherizing features like a fur-lined hood make the parka even better at protecting against winter’s wind, sleet, snow, and freezing rain.

Originally created by the Inuit people of the Arctic from seal skins and furs, you no longer need an endangered animal to keep you toasty in modern times. You just need one of the best parkas for men.

In our humble opinion, United By Blue swung for the fences with the Ultimate American Jacket, and they ably knocked it out of the parka. From cool styling details (the vibrant red color) to a focus on eco-friendly production (the use of sustainable B100 bison fiberfill), it’s a one-of-a-kind jacket. A unique way to close out our list of the best men’s parkas, don’t you agree?
