Tired of buying a coat that’s all style over substance? We’re with you. Of course, you want your winter throw-on to be hitting the latest trends. But it also needs to be warm enough to protect against the elements – which is why Parajumpers is now one of our favourite outerwear brands.

Unlike many other Italian collections, Parajumpers jackets are designed – above all else – to be practical. They still tick the right boxes style-wise, but their main focus is on functionality. Thanks to their nylon shell and down-padded lining, they are built to last, and each style is finished with specially designed pockets for iPods and smartphones.

These features make the Parajumpers jacket an ideal ‘family’ option for the winter months. We have styles for everyone and here we outline some of our top picks from the latest collection.

Our top picks from this season’s Parajumpers collection

Men’s Parajumpers

The Men’s Parajumpers Alvin Quilted Down Jacket is intended for those cold stormy days. Made from nylon ripstop and super-light down, it is incredibly warm and will protect against the wind and rain on the daily commute. A two-way zipper keeps it in place and, just as promised, this popular Parajumpers jacket features a range of functional pockets for your daily essentials.

Currently available in a trendy khaki-green hue, we recommend pairing it with the Men’s Parajumpers Jonny T-Shirt and dark-wash skinny jeans to complete the look. For frosty early morning starts, simply layer it with the Men’s Parajumpers Caleb Basic Sweatshirt in Black for extra cosiness.

Women’s Parajumpers

Staying true to the brand’s ‘functionality’ ethos, the Women’s Parajumpers Dana Jacket is the perfect option for the daily school run. It demonstrates excellent warmth and water-resistance – with a soft poplin shell and fur-trim hood to offer shelter from the rain. Throw on this Parajumpers coat in the morning and, we guarantee, you’ll be the envy of all mums at the playground gates.

If you’re looking for something a little more iconic, the Women’s Parajumpers Ski Master Jacket is a fantastic option. Up for grabs in three stylish colours – including powder pink, cadet blue and chalk white – it features practical pockets throughout. The PJS logo patch can be found stamped proudly to the left sleeve and it is finished with the brand’s signature elastic strap to the neck.

Boy’s Parajumpers

An easy way to create a mini-me look. Styles in the Boy’s Parajumpers collection mirror those found in the men’s and our absolute favourite has to be the Boy’s Parajumpers Last Minute Jacket. Available in khaki-green, with a bright yellow neck strap and a puffer design, it is reminiscent of the Men’s Alvin Jacket (mentioned above) – and it offers the same level of day-to-day functionality.

Layer this stylish coat over a jumper and t-shirt, style with a pair of jeans and finish with the Unisex Junior Parajumpers Baseball Cap. This is a brand that is designed for the long-haul and, no matter how boisterous your little boy might be, it will see him easily through the harsh winter months.

Girl’s Parajumpers

Parajumpers jackets may be practical, but thanks to their pastel-coloured hues, they are still a popular choice with little girls. Take for example the Girl’s Parajumpers Gobi Spring Bomber Jacket. Available in a ‘hot coral’ colourway, it will add a girly touch of pink to her winter wardrobe – whilst also offering a soft weather-proof finish and boasting a range of practical features.

The Girl’s Parajumpers Juliet Jacket in Sky Blue is another excellent option. Not only will it get her stylish seal-of-approval, but it’s also designed to keep her snug and warm – and, once again, it features the brand’s trademark pockets and convenient two-way zipper.
