Today we are going to be showing you an unboxing and give a quick review of the the maxwell stripe long parka. This is a mid-weight, water-resistant, hooded parka.
This parka retails for $295.00 and it comes in three colors black with a white stripe, navy with a red stripe or khaki with a red stripe. These jackets are made from 3-layer waterproof, windproof fabrics that have 4-way stretch. This is ideal for anyone who lives in a moderate climate or those who are looking for a stylish transitional jacket.
Whats is it made of:
The shell of this coat is 91% polyester and 9% spandex. The lining is 90% nylon, 10% spandex. As far as care goes it is recommended that you machine wash it in warm on a gentle cycle and hang dry.
On a non-apparel note North and Mark nails it when it comes to presentation. Imagine if I give you an expensive gift and I just wrapped it in two plastic bags. Now you would be graceful in receiving the gift but you might feel like I didn’t put much thought into the gift. Now If I gave you that same gift, but it was wrapped perfectly with a note inside, the presentation would make you feel even more valued. Yet many retailers give like the first scenario. So its refreshing when a retailer gives you an appealing package that contains a nice garment bag as well. Some of the other pros besides presentation come down to the small details.
The reversible reflective cuffs - these are perfect for those who bike or walk for their commute.
Plenty of pockets - there are two front pockets with two mesh pockets on the inside for keeping belongs safe without making you look bulky
It’s machine washable - the less things you have to dry clean are always beneficial to your wallet.
It’s easy to style casually or formally.
Smudges - the khaki color way does tend to show dirt and smudges so aim for a darker color if you have a more active lifestyle.
