Macpac Carrington PrimaLoft® ThermoPlume® Parka - Women's
Why we made this
Made from water-resistant canvas fabric, the Carrington Parka is designed for urban dwellers, featuring a casual matte finish and premium synthetic insulation.
The urban parka to rule the weather, the Carrington delivers warmth in a new way. Filled with premium PrimaLoft® Silver Thermoplume® synthetic insulation, this parka’s microfiber fill consists of small, silky plumes that mimic the lightweight warmth, softness and compressibility of natural goose down. Providing a similar ‘puffiness’ to natural down, Thermoplume® is described as a blowable synthetic insulation that looks, acts and insulates like down — but because it doesn’t absorb moisture, it offers better performance in wet conditions. The polyester/cotton canvas shell offers casual, matte styling with a DWR finish, while multiple pockets and a two-way front zip with an external, domed storm flap maintains functionality for winter use.

is this jacket waterproof?
BEST ANSWER: Hi - thank you for your comment. This jacket is classed as water resistant as it does not have closed seams. However, due to the fill - PrimaLoft - water does not pass through the fill very easily and can keep you dry for a lot longer than another jacket option such as fleece or down. And it also has DWR treatment( Durable Water Repellent) on the outer fabric which causes water to bead and run off.
