Description

Urban parka with outdoor protection.

The weather's nasty, but you still need to get to work, to the concert, or to your sightseeing rendezvous point. Slide on the Arc'teryx Women's Sylva Parka and head out the door. You won't even feel the breeze thanks to the parka's WindStopper fabric. And those tiny raindrops aren't a problem due to the fabric's DWR finish. The smooth Coreline lining slides over your office or travel attire with ease, and it traps all the toasty warmth that 140g Coreloft insulation has to offer. Which is a lot, because Arc'teryx designed the insulation with a laminated construction (non-quilted) that rids any cold spots from your head to your thighs.

The Sylva has a women-specific design and fit that keep it sleek for city wear, and gusseted underarms that mean you can hail a cab or comfortably take travel photos without the whole jacket bunching up. Its hood provides the same lofty warmth your body gets, and you can cinch it down tightly on blustery days. The laminated brim keeps water from dripping down your face.

Here's what others have to say...

Is this as warm as a down coat?

Responded on

This will not be as warm as the Patera Parka, which is a down coat. However the Sylva Parka offers a surprising amount of warmth and weather protection for the price. The Sylva Parka features a taped Gore WindStopper face fabric so it's completely wind proof and extremely water resistant. The synthetic Coreloft insulation is used throughout the jacket and in the hood as well, offering a nice level of warmth.

Great warm coat, too tight in the chest

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Beautiful, very warm, and lightweight. You can get a full range of motion easily in the arms, but the chest was a bit tighter than I expected. I wear a 36A or a 34B and the medium was just a tad too tight up top for me, especially if I wanted to wear a soft shell underneath, so I'll have to exchange if for a large, otherwise, a great coat. (Also, note that the 2 way zipper in the front has to be all the way down to begin, otherwise you will spend 5 minutes of frustration trying to get it to work). Lastly, I would agree that when you sit down, it doesn't cover the entire seat, and I am also 5 ft. 3.

surprisingly warm, too short

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I used this coat in 0F with wind at night. For the weight of the coat I was surprised by the warmth and protection. However, my bum was cold when I sat in my frozen car since the length of the coat is a few inches too short and I am 5'3". The 3 way adjustable hood is a dream. The pockets are at the exact right place and good sized. The fit is very feminine and good looking for the length.
