At BCH Camping
we’re not just about clothing for long hikes or climbing mountains (although we do have an impressive range of coats, fleeces and waterproof clothing if you feel the urge to take a look
We also appreciate that sometimes in winter you just need to break out of the house and get some much-
needed fresh air. It may only be a stroll, or a wander around shops and markets, but you still need to have a warm coat that ensures you feel comfortable enough to stay out for as long as you want to.
In the women’s styles, a firm favourite at BCH Camping
is the Rab Deep Cover Parka
. It is an impressively warm, stylish, long coat that is guaranteed to keep you warm during the winter months.
So, if you’re a woman looking for your winter go-to, or someone who has a present to buy, we’ve put together this handy blog that provides all the details you need to make an informed purchase.
Sizes, colours and design
The Rab Deep Cover Parka is available in sizes 8 to 16 with a centre back length of 92cm (36 inches). The slim, flattering fit makes this coat a popular choice for wintery commutes and walks. The overall weight of the coat is 900g (31.5oz).

What is the Rab Deep Cover Parka made of?
Firstly, let’s look at the stuffing that makes this such a warm, cosy coat. The down that Rab use in their products is high quality, RDS (Responsible Down Standard) certified European duck down. For the Deep Cover Parka, the down specification is 650FP (fill power).
The down is ethically sourced from European suppliers that adhere to the Responsible Down Standard
. This safeguards the welfare of geese and ducks that provide down and feathers by ensuring that there has been no removal of down from live birds, and the birds haven’t been force-fed.
The down undergoes a Hydrophobic process developed by Rab and Nikwax whereby each cluster of down is treated with fluorocarbon-free Nikwax to make them perform better in damp conditions.
A size 12 Deep Cover Parka carries 340g (12oz) of down.
What is the Rab Deep Cover Parka fabric made of?
The durable nylon ripstop fabric works in tandem with the down insulation to provide the same level of warmth as Rab’s more technical coats and jackets that are worn in challenging cold conditions.
The exterior layer of the nylon is coated with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish. This provides a level of protection in light snow, but the coat is not classified as waterproof.
There are many features that make this coat a favourite with BCH Camping
- Detachable hood and faux fur ruff provide added warmth in cold temperatures
- Nylon cuffs with thumb holes prevent drafts and keep the wrists warm
- The coat is water-resistant
- Versatile – this long coat can be worn for daily walks, dressed up for going out in the evening, and is also perfect for apres-ski
- Two concealed, zipped hand pockets, lined with microfleece on one side
- A secure zipped internal pocket
- The fitted, double-sided front YKK zip allows for access from both ends
The features and performance of the women’s Rab Deep Cover Parka make it an ideal choice for a range of activities during the winter months. The only challenge might be having to take it off when you’re feeling toasty warm!
