Patagonia is a reliable brand when it comes to winter apparel. They make winter coats that ensure you stay warm in the coldest of nights. That is why we thought we would give their Tres 3-in-1 Parka coat a try and review it so you have a better idea if the coat is suited for you or not.
The Tres 3-in-1 Parka is your go-to jacket combination for the coldest of days. It comes with a shell jacket and sweater combination that ensure you stay protected from the cold. Not just that, it is also one of the more comfortable coat you will find in the market that will keep you warm and comfy.
How it performs
When it comes to jackets, the first thing you want to make sure is that it keeps you warm. The Tres 3-in-1 Parka has high-quality fabric that provides down insulation and plenty of layers. The sweater makes sure you stay safe from the cold and is where the insulation is concentrated. Since the sweater and jacket are not attached, the space between the two provides extra warmth as it allows a little air between the two. The multi-layers keeps you nice and warm and it also comes with a hood so you can keep your head covered on rainy and really chilly days.
Another great thing about the Tres 3-in-1 Parka is that is perfect for any type of weather. Rain or snow, the outer layer of the coat is both waterproof and breathable and has a special fabric called H2No. Every aspect of the jacket is waterproof from the seams to the zipper. So you will be well guarded against the rain and snow.
After protection, the one thing that consumers look for is a comfort. Unlike a lot of 3-in-1 jackets, the Tres 3-in-1 Parka doesn’t weigh down on you at all. It is fairly light and fits the frame of the person very well. The shell of the jacket is nice and loose. It almost feels like you are just wearing a layer rather than 3 which is why this is as comfortable jacket as any you will find.
Finally, we round our review off with the final segment which is style. The jacket isn’t anything formal and is of course for casual use. The cut of the jacket is long but comes a few inches below the waist so it isn’t too long a coat. If you do decide to wear the shell on its own without the inner layers then chances are it will fit a little too lose, that is a downside to 3-in-1 jackets. But the simple and classy style of the jacket has been well-received.
If you are looking for a jacket to protect you in the long winter nights while also provide comfort then you don’t need to look further than Patagonia’s Tres 3-in-1 Parka. It really is a value for its money.
