The Edith Women’s waterproof parka raincoat from Didriksons is a feminine and gently-fitting ladies rain jacket that is both waterproof and breathable. Similar to the Jolina and Yola styles from previous collections, the fabric is polyamide with a waterproof PFC-free coating with taped seams as well as a smooth lining – we would describe it as medium weight with a soft feel. The hood can be adjusted to fit snugly and well at the back, also meaning that the hood moves with your head, convenient for walking and cycling in particular. In addition, this attractive and practical parka has a chin guard, a two-way front zipper with storm flap, an inside chest pocket with media opening and adjustable cuffs. The hem is gently shaped for an attractive overall style.
We find the fit is generally true to size, with room for a light layer underneath.
Didriksons has a simple philosophy: You do not challenge the elements, you adapt to them, just like Julius and Hanna Didrikson did, as far back as 1913, when they began making work clothes for all the fishermen in Grundsund. For over a hundred years they have been faithful to their founding principle – to make functional clothing which keeps you dry and comfortable regardless of the weather. Perhaps that’s why a hundred years later, it is still the largest Scandinavian brand for rain and functional garments.
