By: Monte
Now this Safety parka is great. It has so many different pockets, which I love. And it's pretty comfortable. It sure does keep me warm. I really couldn't ask for anything else in a jacket. Also I like how easy it was to embroider.

By: Adam O
This Port Authority safety parka is great. It keeps me dry and warm and everyone on the job site can see me. I like how the hood snaps off for when I am not using it. This working person's store has it all. I will be ordering from here again.

Crash Reconstructionist - This parka is just what we needed for our winter needs....
By: Jim Moore
Purchased one J799S Parka to see if my employees would like it......and they do. I'll be ordering two more in the near future.

Since motor vehicle crashes occur on and along streets and highways....that's where we work too during our post-crash investigations.

Lots of pockets for our stuff and certainly visibile to others. Great product for our type of work during the colder months.

Parka is extremely warm and dry at all times. Very comfortable....
By: David Partin
I spend my working time outside in the weather. Our weather has been cold and wet. The Port Authority Parka is extremely warm and comfortable. The parka keeps me dry in all conditions. I would recommend this product if you work outside in rain, sleet or snow for long periods of time.

The warmest coat I have ever wore!!...
By: Lefahbre
Bring on the wind, the rain and the snow. I am ready!! I have never wore a warmer coat. In howling wind and freezing rain, I feel warm and toasty inside. One important feature is that it breathes. If you are all sweaty, you will be cold. This coat wicks the moisture away from the body, and I feel dry and warm. I am so disappointed that the coat is being discontinued. I was hoping to get a few more for my officers.

decent parka...
By: adamc
This is a good warm parka....recently here in New England we got some -10. Weather so it was a great test..nicely made, fits great....looks good....has nice hand and side pockets and a thick hood.(these features are lacking in other brands ) ..nice and warm.........the chest radio loops...I've grown used to these features using Tingley jackets. ....if those features were included. ..I would rate darn near 100 %. ......close but my rate is 85%

Overall I like this coat, however, I have a couple issues with the design. I love all the pockets, this coat is warm and provides adequate protection from the weather. The negative issues I have is with the hood and collar. The hood is too short to enable the user to wear a ball cap under it. I prefer using a cap with a bill which provides sun shading for my eyes, but this (small) hood creates a lot of downward pressure on the ball cap bill pushing it down over my eyes. The other problem I have noticed is that the collar is too stiff when fully closed which causes discomfort. So I have resorted to wearing a neck scarf which provides protection from the cold but is not water proof.

Warmth in bitter winter is wonderful!...
By: Robin
This is a true parka - no hype. I tested this parka with a light shirt only at 24 degrees F and 20 MPH taking hay with 4-wheeler and trailer to livestock 3/4 mile from hayshed. It blocks the wind well and I was just starting to feel the cold in that test condition. With a sweatshirt under the parka it was great. The hood is appropriate size and shape for my head. I (a woman) bought a men's medium size, but the hip area is to narrow for movement needed, so I unzip it up a few inches. That was the only problem. The rest of the coat offers fine room for movement without bulk in the way, although the tummy area is big enough to fit a pillow in. The bright color is helpful to the driver when I am in back of a truck or on a trailer behind a tractor putting out hay for cows. I am frequently caught finishing up in the dark of winter and the reflective is good, as a public gravel road bisects our 900 acre farm in NE WA. We have a guest ranch and guests can find me too. I would like inside breast pockets on BOTH sides as I have to carry a radio telephone and need to keep it protected and warm. I would like to carry my camera too. I work hard, long hours in cold miserable conditions and this is the best parka I have found in this price range. When you are all done with everything else and it has been a really long day and then you find a cow needing help calving you have no choice but to keep going. Add wind and side-ways sleet or rain and see how your coat stacks up. This parka is my best so far!

Warm and dry And is made very well...
By: Herennow
I like how this fits and is designed. It's very warm, but breathes,wicks the moisture away. So it's not uncomfortable. Zipper is actually decent for once! Easy to use.
Blocks wind, standing out unloading for hours sometimes you stay warm & dry.
Best work coat I've owned! A lot have come & gone over the years.

Heavyweight Winter Parka...
By: Gail
I'm very happy with my purchase of the heavyweight parka. The reflective material was what attracted me to this jacket. It's very warm, good closures, and a nice length that covers the backside. This runs large.

Parka Shields from Cold, but designed for men...
By: Eden
I work in extreme winter cold and have to be out in terrible weather at times to care for livestock. This is the best coat I have found so far to shield me from the cold, make me visible for guests or other workers to see me. The problem with this coat is that it is designed for a man with narrow hips and a big belly. I have narrow belly and big hips so it is confining. The coat has an outer zipper and an inner zipper. The outer zipper failed after less than 90 days use. So, I use the inner zipper. It is slow to get ready or get out of it. So I am enduring this as it is a great coat. Just could be better if it were designed for a shapely woman and had a higher quality tough zipper. I expect a work coat zipper to be super tough. If I were wearing this for a fashion statement I would not care if the zipper did not zip.
