Summit Explorer Parka

The coldest winter winds are no match for our men's parka jacket.


Wintertime suburban treks and country excursions demand a parka that can keep the pace and keep you comfortable. Our Summit Explorer is built to take on the cold with a nylon/cotton blend shell that incorporates a removable, 80-gram polyester-filled liner with rib-knit cuffs. The jacket shell is constructed with an attached hood, stand collar, and a center-front zip closure. Slotted buttons are held securely in place with rugged twill tape for added durability. Four external cargo pockets offer ample storage opportunities, while two internal security pockets keep your valuables close at hand. An internal drawcord provides a comfortable fit as well as additional protection from chilling drafts. In olive drab. Cotton/nylon shell. Polyester liner. Polyester insulation. Washable.
Sizes: M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52); about 31½" long in size medium.

    "Snug as a bug in a rug" !! - 4/30/2014

    Having just received this jacket, I deliberately went out on a cold, windy, miserable afternoon to test it out and with the zip all the way up and the hood adjusted, I felt as "snug as a bug in a rug". It kept me very warm and dry and the only thing missing was hand-warmer pockets which are now very common in all kinds of outerwear but were conspicuous by their absence here. I'm not certain the jacket will be warm enough for the coldest winter days in Scotland but it will be good enough for most days. The jacket is a very attractive shade of olive though, if nit-picking I would say the very bright orange colour to the removable shell is jarring. Nevertheless this is an excellent jacket which I would recommend to potential purchasers. PS> I can only find one internal security pocket.If there are two, the second must be well hidden and I'd appreciate an email fro Customer Service letting me know where to find it.

    A Fantastic item - 4/14/2014
    By: from Indian Orchard, MA

    Bought this item in New York City on a whim. It is the best on a whim purchase I made! It has served me through Winter and is now, sans the liner, a perfect Spring jacket. I love it! I feel like I will get years out of it. I bought size large and it is a perfect fit.

    Great Product - 3/13/2014
    By: from Chicago, IL

    Lightweight, roomy, and warm. One small drawback - the button-in liner is not adequately secured (buttoned) about the shoulders, allowing the wearer to misplace his arm down the sleeve and outside the liner. Otherwise, very satisfied with this product.

    Very Warm Coat - 3/1/2014

    This is an extremely comfortable and warm coat. I also like the fact that it is an Orvis brand coat. That gives it a certain cache.

    Good quality, but lighter than advertised - 1/4/2014
    By: from Downingtown, PA

    First off, the quality of the coat is up to Orvis standards. It looks good and it looks like it will hold up for a long time. It's also comfortable and my XXL fits perfectly. I'm 6'5" and all torso so length is an issue for me. Luckily I tried it on at the local Orvis store and it was more than long enough. Although the zipper doesn't run the length of the coat, which is odd. It doesn't go all the way to the bottom of the coat. My only complaint is this is not a parka, despite the name. Without the removable liner, this is a jacket. When I hear the word 'parka', I think of a water resistant/proof heavy insulated coat for extreme cold conditions. That isn't this coat. But I like it for what it is.
