Columbia Men’s Whirlibird Parka – Review

When I was browsing the web for a good parka jacket, I quickly stumbled on this particular model. It looked to me like it would give me plenty of space to move around in. It’s got that light weight look all over it.

That’s exactly what I want because I am slightly larger than the average person and being obstructed in my movement is tiresome to me. I remember the days when I was young and slim, but that was a different time.

Being a few years older and having a steady job and wife and kids, things are different. I quickly get overheated so I do not want the thickets of winter jackets that I can find. It seems my body fat is doing a great job at keeping my insulated already, he he.

So I ended up buying this jacket for a good price and it arrived only 3 days later. Luckily, it turned out to be a very good fit. I was afraid that it would be either too small or too large, but it looks like I lucked out on this one!

I can’t believe the amount of pockets there are on this jacket. All of a sudden, I’ve got place to store my wallet, cell phone, car keys with space to spare! So far, the jacket is also doing a pretty good job at keeping me warm. I tend to get a little sweaty if I move around all day, but this jacket doesn’t make me perspire more than I usually do.

The material feels very nice and it fits very comfortably. Even the sleeves are exactly the right length. The stop right at my wrists, so there was no need to have this fixed. All in all I’d say this was a purchase that’s going to last a long time.
