The Mountain Parka is a pertinent example of Monitaly’s careful attention to detail and engineered fitting. The jacket has been part of Monitaly’s Fall/Winter collection for over five years. Several well crafted design features, such as raglan sleeve construction, underarm gussets and shoulder pleats, work in conjunction to keep the Mountain Parka mobility-friendly despite its substantial weight as a water-proof outer layer. The jacket boasts a total of six outer pockets; a patch gusseted pocket on right chest, a vertical zipper welt pocket on left chest, two large-sized gusted pockets at lower front, and two pockets on back. The right chest pocket is equipped with a penholder opening on flap for better functionality. The two lower front pockets can be accessible in two ways; storage from the top opening and hand-warming from side entry. All the pockets get double needle top stitch with sturdy thick thread. 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 while smooth acetate sleeve lining will make sure you can put your arms smoothly and easily.
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.
Snap fasteners used are “DOT” brand, which is made by Scovill Co. All snap fasteners are set with vegetable-tanned leather washer that has been skived (sliced) to get the best thickness for reinforcement.
