The Fjallraven Men's Polar Guide Parka is a tough, warm, waterproof jacket that can handle just about anything you throw at it. Freezing cold temps, blowing snow, spaghetti, I’m telling you, this thing will laugh at your attempts to break its will. The outer material is made from Fjallraven’s famously durable G-1000®, a densely woven fabric treated with wax that offers protection as well as breathability. To help keep you toasty, this jacket has been insulated with Supreme Microloft, a synthetic insulation that maintains its loft and warmth even when wet. If your plans have you out in the cold for hours on end there are plenty of accessible pockets to store all your stuff (and sandwiches) in. Spaghetti? Sandwiches? I must need lunch.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good parka If you're like me you were deciding between this and the Barents. There's a lot to like about the Barents, but at the end of the day there were two deciding factors in favor of the Polar Guide: cut and warmth. This coat certainly runs large so size down, but even then the cut is comfortably full (6'0 165, I normally wear a M, but a S is perfect). It never feels too roomy with just a button down underneath, and never feels too tight layered up with a thick sweater or fleece. The cut plus the length also allows it to fit very comfortably over a suit jacket, if you need to take that into consideration. For comparison the Barents was just too tight under the arms and around the chest for me. Second is the warmth. This is a nice, heavy, warm parka, and that's what it's all about, isn't it? The hood is huge and when fully zipped is incredible at shielding your face from wind, and there are thick, heavy cuffs around the wrists for keeping out cold and wind. Snap closures all along the front zipper and lower bellows pockets (not velcro as shown in some web photos out there) are nice and sturdy. I tend to get cold easily but I've been pleasantly surprised how warm it is for synthetic, it compares favorably to down coats I've had, and certainly is more than enough for winters in northern NJ without making me cramped by heat. The waterproof hydratic liner is great too, as we get as much cold rain/sleet as snow around here in winter. There are some minor gripes - first, I wish they made it completely out of G-1000 for added durability rather than polyamide with G-1000 reinforcements. I assume that was for cost or weight or both. Second, the lower hand warmer pockets are only lined on one side with fleece, which is a little absurd for a heavy winter parka. Just line them completely in fleece. Overall a really excellent parka, well worth the cost, and figures to hold up for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious Winter Coat Last winter was one of the worst I've seen here in Boston, and after that beating I decided I wanted a nice warm parka like all the fashionable people around town were wearing. I had received a "parka" from a different brand for Xmas, and the first cold day of the year I took it out for a test drive, where it failed miserably. Not warm enough. Did some research, and found good things about Fjallraven's Polar Guide Parka. Decided to give it a shot, and man am I glad that I did. I take a ferry to work, and standing on the dock at 6:00AM this morning I was in my furnace-warm coat. The wind howled, I smiled. The quality of this coat is very good, and the fit is perfect. I'm tall and thin (6' 2" 180 lbs), would normally buy medium tall shirts etc, and this fits me perfectly. The sleeves are nice and long, and the body is close fitting, but not tight. Bless those Scandinavians. Pros: Warm. Really warm. If its above freezing, too warm. Great styling Great fit lots of pockets Cons: Could be an inch or two longer, but not short by any means "Olive" color is more brown in some lights If you need a warm coat, buy this one.

Is this jacket wind proof? Also, what is the difference between this one and the other couple of parkas they offer? Excluding the down one.

Asked by: Mountain Man
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! The Fjallraven Polar Guide Parka is both wind and waterproof. The difference in parkas vary because of what they have to offer, i.e. best uses, weight, materials used, wind/waterproofing. I hope this helps you out!

What is the main difference between the Polar Guide and the Barents jackets? Which is the warmest and longest? Thanks

Asked by: Sister
Hey Sister, thanks for asking! The Polar Guide Parka is the longer of the two, and it's warmer than the Barents Parka. It's also more waterproof than the Barents. I hope this helps!

I am 6' 0", waist size is 36" and chest is 42". This parka would be mostly used in Alaska for winter and not for working. Which size I should choose: Medium or Large ??? Thank you ! Glamak

Asked by: Glamak
Hiya Glamak, thanks for your question! According to the size chart, you fall somewhere between a large and XL. (There is a link to a helpful size chart located in the lower left corner of the drop down size menu.) Usually we recommend sizing up if you are between sizes and plan to wear lots of layers underneath, but you might be fine in a large if you are just using it for commuting. Hope this helps!

which of these is more warmer from Fjallraven, Polar Guide Parks or Barents Parka? Also, what's the min. temperature till which both these parka's will stay effective?

Asked by: sanjv2015
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! Actually, these coats do not have a temperature rating. In fact, most coats do not have temperature ratings. This is for several reasons. Mainly, it's because warmth is a subjective thing, unique to each person. Not only that, but there are other factors that can affect a person's (or jacket's) warmth: wind, humidity, activity level, what else your wearing, etc. However, there are still helpful hints you can use to guide you. Best bet will be to check the insulation. That should be your basic rule of thumb. For the Polar Guide, you're going to have 250 g Supreme Microloft for insulation. For the Barents, it will be 150 g Supreme Microloft, so it looks like the Polar Guide will be your warmest choice. Hope this helped you out!

Is the Polar Guide Parka long enough to cover a suit jacket?

Asked by: JeffD
Hiya JeffD, thanks for your question! The size large parka is 34.5 inches long, so it should fit over a men's suit jacket and cover the length. Hope this helps!

Referring to a question ask by Sister, well actually the response.. Is it actually true this is longer than the Barents parka? I just by looking at photos the Barents looks much longer

Asked by: 9455665
Hiya 9455665, thanks for your question! They are actually about the same length. I wouldn't say it is much longer, just a half inch difference. Hope this helps!

I wonder whether the velcro adjustments would help if the sleeves are too long for my arms; I'm 5'8" / 160lbs and am torn between small and medium. My chest size is 38" and I'd like space for a suit jacket but I don't want to disappear in a huge parka!

Asked by: Thomas
Hi Thomas, thanks for your question! Most of Fjallraven's parkas are designed a bit big. I would suggest a size small in your case. The velcro on the cuffs will help with long sleeves. It won't change the fit of the jacket if the sleeves are several inches too long, but if they only slightly too long, it will make a difference. Hope this helps!

I just got the coat and it fits and feels great.  I feel like an idiot, though, because I'm having a very difficult time getting it to zip when I wear it.  Zipper works fine when I zip it on a table.  Help!

Asked by: JK1957
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! Did you know that the first registered trade name for zipper was by B. F. Goodrich for "Boots made of rubber and fabric"? It wasn't even for the interlocking jaws we now know as zippers! So, for sticky zippers, I've found that a graphite pencil tip to the teeth really eases everything. If that doesn't work, I've been told that Windex works great or even a bar of soap! Hope this helps out. Hugsies!
