Columbia’s 3-in-1 Bugaboo Tech Parka is an effective all-in-one solution for winter weather protection. It’s a popular choice for people who are moving into cold locales for the first time, and those whose winter wardrobe just needs a versatile upgrade.
If you’re going to survive a cold and snowy winter with any measure of comfort, you need your clothing to do two things: first, keep you warm; and second, keep you dry.
Columbia’s 3-in-1 jackets are designed to do both of these things. The outer shell is laminated with a Columbia Omni-Tech waterproof membrane to keep out rain, sleet, and snowmelt. A separate fabric liner on the inside of shell increases next-to-skin wearing comfort and helps the jacket slide easily over other layers.
The interchangeable liner, which is easily removed from the shell for stand-alone wear, features a smooth and stylish softshell-like face and a heat-reflecting Columbia Omni-Heat liner. It’s a good-looking jacket in its own right, but be advised: it has no further insulation (i.e. down or synthetic fill) besides the Omni-Heat fabric , so it won’t deliver expedition-grade warmth on its own. Even so, if you layer the Bugaboo Tech Parka shell and liner over a sweater or fleece, you should be ready for a cold day of skiing or a frigid walk to work.
The Bugaboo Tech Parka also features a chamois-lined pocket to protect glasses and smartphone screens, and the Napoleon-style chest pocket has a headphone port so you can take your mind off the cold with music.
