A bit of history

In the early 50s, the park was created for the military , like many well-known types of outerwear. She was a warm coat worn by American pilots and infantry to protect herself from the cold and wind. 

As a base, the designers of the time took the Eskimo outerwear , which they put on the hunt. Historically, parks were sewn from animal skins, fur out. 

In the 60s, the park was spotted by fashion houses in the UK; and from that time on its popularity in various sections of the population began to grow rapidly. Parks began to wear and youth subcultures, and ordinary urban dwellers. Nowadays, the situation has not changed much - different categories of the population wear such jackets at any age.

According to the type of insulation such jackets are divided into  autumn and winter

An ideal material for parks would be waterproof fabric - in such a park you can not worry about the bad weather and walk freely in the pouring rain or, which is important in the winter, during a snowstorm.

Color parks
