Perfect Winter Coats and Parkas On Sale Now at Backcountry

The Backcountry Winter Clearance is in full swing right now, and hundreds of items are marked way, way down. While perusing the massive selection of drastically reduced skis, snowboards, and winter gear, we stumbled across a treasure trove of winter parkas from the white-hot Italian company Parajumpers, whose stylish and rugged outerwear is at home on the runways of Milan as in the Alps of Tyrol. And it’s all discounted a full 25 percent.

The 8 Toughest Winter Parkas Money Can Buy

When a brand is this hyped the pickings can be slim, especially among the most popular styles, colors, and sizes. But keep in mind that even though retailers are blowing out winter gear, many of us have months of cold, blustery weather still ahead of us. So these coats and parkas are not only going to get plenty of wear this winter, but you’ll be able to rock them for years to come.

So if you want to stay warm while looking tres chic this winter, hurry to Backcountry right now and check out some of these great deals on Parajumpers winter parkas and coats.

Skimaster Mountain Loft

Even with waterproof and breathable construction made for days on the slopes, this jacket has plenty of mountain town style. Packed with lofty down for warmth, it comes with ski-friendly features like an adjustable hem backed by the snow-protection of a powder skirt and thumbhole-equipped wrist gaiters for keeping snow out of your sleeves. The insulated hood offers toasty coverage in stormy weather, and the detachable real fur trim not only looks great but it keeps windchill to a minimum.

Parajumper equipped the Skimaster with tons of pockets, giving you plenty of places to stash your phone, wallet, trail map, snacks, goggles, and more. It comes in Copper or Asphalt (grey).

[From $ 823;]   


Ernie Leather

Your favorite leather bomber is amazing—until the snow really starts dumping. Puffers are practical, but the style isn’t as timeless as leather. Push aside those winter jackets that just aren’t “you” and make room in your closet for Ernie. Filled with breathable synthetic insulation, it will keep you warmer than regular leather when the weather gets foul, and the waxed lambskin leather exterior won’t soak through at the first sign of rain.

Well-placed accents like zipper tassels and a tape-neck closure lend classic aviator style, while subtle pit zippers prevent overheating when you’re stuck inside. This Cognac colorway is nearly out of stock (unless you’re a Medium) but it also comes in slightly lighter Caramel.

[From $ 823;   


Right Hand

The Right Hand will wrap you in a removable, insulated down liner, or use the external shell to keep you dry with its waterproof, breathable membrane. You can even just wear the stylish liner. The coyote fur ruff is also removable, just in case it’s too snowy to show off that après-style. There are a plethora of pockets, including cargo pockets with three internal pockets for plenty of organization. Heavy-duty cuffs seal out the cold to keep you cozy throughout winter.

Available in dark grey, dark green, light green (shown), or tan.

[From $ 844;]     



Inspired by adventurers and designed for urban explorers, the Kodiak blends arctic performance with enough style for the streets of Aspen, St. Moritz—even NYC. It repels water and dirt, and has a removable layer of 90/10 down insulation to trap heat, a drawstring waist to seal out drafts, and a detachable fur ruff and lined collar to keep the cold winter winds at bay.

It’s the details that make the difference, though; side zip vents to keep you from overheating and Parajumper’s distinctive PJS snap-hook at the neck provides warmth and style. 

[From $ 881;]   


Dhole Down Jacket

Step away from the standard garbage-bag puffer and stay warm in the Dhole Down. Goatskin leather gives this sleeves some weather protection as well as style, and the twill body has a water-resistant treatment to protect the down from light snowfall. The down itself is super-lofty and surprisingly light. The real fur trim is made from Canadian coyotes. The Dhole comes in Anthracite only.

[$ 1,042;]   


Special Edition Forrest Down

Combining sophistication with a gritty look, the Forrest is ready for any urban adventure in cold weather. Its hardwearing face fabric repels light moisture from flurries while the down insulation provides warmth on cold evenings. Sheepskin accents and the coyote fur hood trim create an authentically natural, refreshingly organic style that elevates your style. 

Available in Navy or brown.

[$ 1,796, regularly $ 2,395;]
