Our Waterproof Winter Parka is made with our signature high-performance fabric but lined with fleece for extra warmth. This offers all the benefits of staying dry and protected as well as offering further warmth in colder conditions. It’s longer than our standard parka, and has an elegantly shaped dipped back hem, adding a stylish and sophisticated touch to the traditional parka coat. The waist and hem can be adjusted to further alter the shape and tailor its fit to your body shape and comfort requirements.  

High warmth without the padding

Discover our highly technical fabric stretching softly with movement and now lined with a high warmth-to-weight ratio anti-pill fleece creating an effortless performance-led Winter Parka.

New improved hood

Featuring a generous concealable and fully adjustable hood which has a soft peak and internal volume adjustor to allow for perfect shaping and fit around the hair and head whilst keeping visibility clear whatever the weather. When not in use it is completely hidden within the signature funnel collar.

Attention to detail

We’ve put lots of detail and technical features throughout the Winter Parka from laser cutting and heat welding to specific neck and hood shaping for practicality and comfort. Built to last.

Subtle branding

The Protected Species Winter Parka features style conscious details, with subtle branding and a sleek design to set you apart from the crowd. Branded soft closing studs are to the front and on the cuff adjustors to allow easy opening.

    I am over the moon with my purchase. To begin with I was nervous about making such a big purchase without having seen it. The first coat I bought was the parker. It was too big and the temperature had dropped, so I felt cold. I’m 5ft 2in and a size 10-12 ish. I decided to exchange for the winter parker in a size 10. And I’m delighted! I cycle to work all year round and I’m also in a client facing role and need to look smart. This ticks so many boxes! When I cycle, I don’t need to wear a jumper. Just a t-shirt. Until it gets to sub 4-5 degrees. Then I wear a jumper and if I’m out walking I wear a jumper with the coat anyway. It’s not a snowy weather coat – you’ll need to layer up for that. I’m honestly delighted with the purchase. It’s COMPLETELY WATERPROOF, looks smart and is really comfortable. I will definitely get another lighter version for spring.

    Really love this coat so comfortable to wear with the slight stretch in the material and looks beautiful. I am normally a size 10 and bought a 10, it fits perfectly with a light jumper underneath but if you want the option to layer up for a cold winter you might want to go up a size. I find it comfortable down to 5 degrees but if colder you might want a thicker jumper. It looks amazing and easy to look smart or casual.

    Protected Species once again have created an essential product – evolving and setting the standard on the winter coat. This coat is perfect – immediately cosy when you put it on but so soft, lightweight and fluid. It’s intelligently and thoughtfully designed, love the idea of putting fleece in the pockets – such a treat on a cold morning. The high neck, fluted sleeves and waist ties make this a contemporary and essential choice for my winter commute and weekend wear. I am a UK 10 and the coat fits me perfectly with and without layering

    A fantastic coat that saw me through some pretty unpleasant weather in Wales this week (after the amazing customer service team managed to get it delivered to me in time at very short notice!) Much admired by my dear friend on our getaway, she marvelled at how a raincoat could look so stylish! Stayed dry and warm, many thanks girls 🙂

    Smart, lightweight but warm. The jacket is true to size. At first I wondered if I should return to get a larger size to accommodate winter layers but I’ve decided to keep it. Very happy with my purchase.

    Another excellent product from Protected Species. I wasn’t sure if it would be that warm as it still has a lovely shape however it definitely does keep you warm. I cycled at 6am with only the jacket and a t shirt and was lovely and cosy.

    Some good new touches on the winter parka, excellent hood, high cosy neck and the jacket buttons to the bottom but the zip doesn’t so makes easier when sitting or cycling etc. The jacket is a good length and the outside waist adjuster is a nice touch too which makes it different from the original parka.

Sizing and specifications

Dual sized jackets







6-8 32-34 34-36 4-6
10-12 36-38 38-40 8-10
12-14 40-42 42-44 10-12
16-18 42-44 44-46 14-16


Single sized jackets







6-8 32-34 34-36 4-6

12 38 40 10
14 40 42 12
16-18 40-42 42-44 14-16


For dual sized garments,  the fabric handle and many adjustable parts used for shaping the jacket, means that each size will fit both sizes indicated. for example, size 12-14 will fit a standard UK size 14, with a slightly looser feel on the size 12. If you are between sizing, for example you are normally a 14-16, we recommend choosing the larger size. Our products are all true-to-size to generous to allow for layering (they are suitable for all year round use).

For single sized jackets we recommend choosing your regular size.

Product Care

We recommend using Grangers products with our garments. They are a brand, like ourselves, dedicated to keeping you dry no matter what the weather. As a technical garment, your Protected Species jacket will need a bit more TLC than your regular clothes. Using the recommended products will keep your jacket performing well and ensure longevity of your Protected Species garments. (Note – regular washing powder can affect waterproofing and repellency)


Grangers Performance Wash is what we recommend for washing our garments as well as preparing them for reproofing. Performance wash will clean, remove odours, optimise breathability, and maintain existing water-repellency. It also provides all garments with a clean, residue-free base for optimal re-proofing.

Grangers Performance Wash is designed to work at 30°C (86°F). Simply place the product in the washing machine’s drawer before washing. Ensure the drawer is free from detergent residue. Afterwards, drip-dry your Protected Species garment (don’t tumble dry) – it will look as good as new once dry.

All waterproof jackets need reproofing from time-to-time as DWR coatings wear off with day-to-day use as well as washing. You will know to reproof when the fabric on your Protected Species starts to “wet-out” and the water doesn’t roll off it so easily. Note – this doesn’t affect the waterproofing. We recommend Grangers Clothing Repel on our waterproof garments. This is a fluorocarbon-free wash-in waterproofer to replenish the durable water-repellent finish on your jacket. The product will also enhance breathability. Grangers Clothing Repel is designed to work at 30°C (86°F). Simply place the product in the washing machine’s drawer before washing (ensuring the drawer is free from detergent residue). Grangers Clothing Repel does not require heat activation therefore garments can be drip dryed (don’t tumble dry your Protected Species jacket). Ensure garments are completely dry before use.
