Classic, the longer cut parka is waterproof and breathable shell fabric. Guaranteed to keep you dry all year around.
There’s no better way to stay dry in the pouring rain. One Parka is a waterproof and breathable 2,5-layer shell parka, guaranteed to keep you dry all year around. With a classic, longer cut you will be sheltered even from the worst sideways rainstorms. Taking a classic garment and redesigning it with a layer of extra functionality or smartness is a known recipe for a Houdini garment.
The classic parka was designed by the US military and popularized by the British mods culture. In Houdini's contemporary version, they have removed the lining and created a cutting edge shell jacket. This way, you can use it all year round without being too hot in the summer. Just layer up from the inside when you use it in wintertime.
One Parka is made in durable Mission Hardshell, a waterproof and breathable shell fabric. It’s made from recycled polyester and is fully recyclable. The fabric can stand years of wear and tear and works just as fine on a rainy day in the city as on rough days in the mountains.
Both the membrane and water repellent are completely free from harmful fluorocarbons. High performance does not have to come at the cost of a high environmental impact. If you are looking for a cozy raincoat to keep you dry in the roughest weather, One Parka is your match. If you layer up underneath, it will keep you warm all through winter and we can even recommend bringing it to the ski slopes when the conditions are wet. This garment is recyclable and we kindly ask you to return it to Weekendbee when it’s completely worn out.

Membrane: Atmos™ Atmos™ Membrane is a hydrophilic membrane, not micro porous, and at the molecular-level moisture moves through the fabrics. The more moisture that is in circulation the greater the ability of the membrane to move moisture away from your body. With Atmos we are sure we have a membrane that delivers Houdini standards when it comes to high performance in an environmentally sustainable way, which no other membrane at the market can live up to. Atmos™ membrane is made from recyclable polyester.
When washing clothes made of synthetic fabrics, the use of a washing bag becomes even more important: It prevents microplastics from entering into rivers and oceans.
Air clothes instead of washing to save water, energy and to make the garments last longer.
Use a washing bag to protect your garments and to prevent fibers from leaking. When cleaning the bag and filter in the machine, make sure to wipe it clean and throw the lint in your trash can. Never rinse it in water since we don’t want the fibers to end up in lakes or oceans.
Machine wash, max 40 °C/104 °F.
Use mild environmentally certified detergents and make sure to use the right dose.
Avoid fabric softener. Besides being harmful for our environment, they have a negative impact on the garment performance, mainly moisture transportation and breathability.
Tumble dry on low heat.
Iron on low heat.
This product is Bluesign® certified, meaning that the production is vetted by a third party to eliminate any harmful chemicals or substances right from the beginning of the production process. This benefits both people, animals and our entire planet.
This product is fully circular, meaning that it's made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, Houdini wants to close the loop and reuse the material they already have. But they need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to Weekendbee.
At least 50% of the fibers in this garment come from recycled sources, either recycled clothes or other sources like PET bottles. Houdini mainly uses recycled polyester, which has many benefits. It reduces both CO2 emissions and water use compared to virgin polyester. How much depends on the type of recycling. One of Houdini suppliers shows 32% less CO2 emissions and 94% less water use for mechanically recycled polyester. In addition to the impact in production, the major shift is using "waste" as raw material instead of crude oil.
The fabric in this garment is fully recyclable. Instead of becoming waste, the raw material can be used for new products. Houdini's goal is that by 2030, they will take no raw material to their products from the earth's crust. Circular products, made from recycled and recyclable materials are a real game changer, but Houdini needs your help for the system to work. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to Weekendbee.

Takki on hyvin istuva, mikä ei ole itsestäänselvyys pyylevän malliselle ihmiselle, joka kuitenkin tykkää pitkistä takeista. Tämä päällä pystyy myös hyvin pyöräilemään, mutta ei ole myöskään liian iso hartioista. Mukavan tuntuinen, pitää veden ja tuulen ja lämmittää kun lisää kerroksia alle. Hintaahan tällä on, mutta se ei haittaa jos tästä on iloa useiksi vuosiksi, ulkonäöltään kun on varsin ajaton.
