Thermal Military Parka 2023

Size Guide
Size & Fit Guide
Our customers rave about our fit, check out the reviews.

FRAHM jackets are cut for real men's bodies and action. We've subtly altered classic tailoring for more movement, for real life. Our jackets do not have a restrictive teenage 'fashion' cut. 

Size Chart: 

 

 

HOW TO FIT YOURSELF

Size by your actual body measurements, not copying your size in another brand. Fit can vary wildly between brands and their size may not be ours.

HEIGHT: This is the easy one – measure yourself from the top of your head to your heel. (Sometimes easier to do against a wall we find.)

CHEST: To find out your chest size, take a tape measure and wrap it under your armpits at the fullest part of your chest.

ARM: Measure from the shoulder seam to the bony bit on your wrist (yes, that is the biological term).

 

 

If you can't measure your chest circumference, the best guide to size is your best fitting existing jacket or suit jacket. Then Live Chat us and we can advise what your size is.

"Tall" sizes are for very tall men, offering exactly the same jacket with significantly longer arms and torso. Don't buy one if you're above average - our standard sizes will fit.

If you have shorter arms, we will happily have your sleeves shortened from a minimum of 3cm for you when possible (most of the time it is). Typically alterations take 3 - 4 weeks.  

If you have any questions please do Live Chat or email us on hello@frahmjacket.com

Parkas are incredible for harsh winter conditions, but the big brands seem intent on making either shiny synthetic or baggy fashion versions. I wanted to make a world-beater. A less flimsy, more grown up, more detailed parka built with longevity and quality in mind. 

The design is testament to classic Arctic exploration kits and Scandinavian military designs, with increased performance. My initial design notes say "tough as nails". It is.

Perfect winter coat?

Despite being the proud owner of multiple Frahm jackets (and a teeny tiny piece of the company) was blown away when I received my parka. It got a decent test. In the recent cold snap and over just a T-shirt it kept me warm and cosy in freezing temperatures and high winds. Although not billed as waterproof, it kept me totally dry in a sustained downpour while out walking the dog. Everything feels quality and built to last a lifetime. In the interests of a balance review, there is one element I think could be improved…. Having a zipped phone pocket that is accessible without having to open up the jacket would be great, but that’s about the only thing I can think of! Expensive? Very. Worth it? Totally.

First purchase

This was my first FRAHM jacket so didn’t know exactly what to expect and whether the reviews were accurate. As soon as I put it on the fit and quality was apparent, it’s so warm on the windiest days and kept me toasty the whole day. Yes it’s expensive but reassuring so and I’m so glad I made the leap. I have my eyes on the 4 seasons rain jacket now!

Worth the wait

Not my first jacket from Frahm but my new favourite. It ticks every box and I love it. The quality and detail are worth every penny and the wait.
