Mountain Parka by Monitaly has unique designs, tough construction, and great functionality. The Parka has been part of Monitaly Fall/Winter collection for over four years. We improve it every season without sacrificing its original design and concept.
The parka has six outer pockets. At the chest, a patch gusseted pocket on left and a vertical opening welt pocket with zipper closure on right. For the convenience, the left chest pocket is equipped with a penholder opening on flap. There are two large gusseted pockets at the lower front body, and they are accessible in two ways; from the top opening just like a normal pocket and from the side as hand warmer. There are also two more pockets on back of the jacket; one zipper welt pocket and one patch gusseted pocket. All the pockets get double needle top stitch with sturdy thick thread.
It features a raglan sleeve construction. Hood is constructed with three panels for a better fit and is equipped with a visor. At the top of front zipper closure, wool zipper guard is attached to avoid the discomfort of metal zipper touching your skin in cold weather. Western yoke front and back shoulder gives it unique design. There is a waist belt made out of self waxed cotton fabric with a military-spec buckle closure. The Mountain Parka is fully lined with wool to keep you warm. There are three inner double welt pockets for convenience.
Waxed cotton is most often used in hunting and fishing clothing and is practically water and wind proof. There are a couple of manufactures that produce waxed cotton, but the one used for our Mountain Parka is domestically-produced American waxed cotton. It goes through a unique process to apply wax on fabric. Wax is impregnated into yarn with a special technique (this technique is a company top secret that has been passed down from generation to generation). Waxed cotton fabric treated with this special technique has much less wax migration problem without sacrificing its functionality. Waxed cotton is a perfect classic outdoor fabric. Wax can be reapplied after yeas of use or hand cleaning. The more you take care of the wax cotton fabric, the appearance of the wax cotton fabric will be more nicely aged and you can enjoy the aging process over years.
Snaps are “DOT” brand, which is made by Scoville Co. Snap closure are often called "Dot buttons", and it is because Scoville originally made it with "DOT" brand name. All snaps gets vegetable-tanned leather washer that has been skived (sliced) in the best thickness for application, this provides reinforcement and avoids the snaps from falling off of the garment.
