Dive Parka

Postby 32juan » July 5th, 2017, 9:01 am

My Truwest parka's zipper bit the dust yesterday coming home from Avalon. So I'm in the market for a new parka. I've heard nothing but good things about surf-fur, but I'm unsure about the buttons vs a zipper. And the water proof capacity of the buttons. I will be wearing it coming into the afternoon wind chop, and being completely waterproof is a must.

Both the Truwest and surf-fur are similar in price, and both made in the USA.

Any recommendations I should know about?

Thanks!

I understand you all have different needs than me but this is what we use here in the winter. They aren't as long as the Parkas so it only covers to the waist but maybe someone will find this useful. This jacket is extremely warm and the outside is 2mm neoprene with insulation inside. Completely waterproof and windproof.

Good idea! The parka is a bit tired, so I will probably buy a new one anyways. I'll look for a place in San Pedro that might be able to do it
