Fall in Seattle is my favorite time of the year. Traveling back to my old stomping grounds during the chillier fall days require a warm coat that is durable for the weather, and versatile enough to wear for many occasions. I've partnered with Cotopaxi and sharing my new go-to coat for the season!

This is the Kusa Parka, in black. This parka is similar to their classic bomber, but has added length to give extra coverage. The modern cut is perfect for the outdoors and you can also wear it around the city for a sporty look. The black shiny exterior pairs well with leather leggings, sneakers, distressed or black denim, boots, and a chunky beanie. I love this jacket for so many reasons! It's made with a llama-fiber insulation , ripstop nylon, and a DWR finish. The llama fiber is woven with a polyester to create a versatile, lightweight insulation to keep you warm. It's perfect for the 30-60 ºF temperatures, and keeps you warm during those damp days. It's perfect for fall and winter, and I'm beyond excited to have this in my wardrobe!
Did I also mention it's reversible?! Yeah- what an extra treat. The cream is a classy alternative to the black. The bomber-inspired sleeve and collar details stand out so much more, along with the buttons on the back. So it's almost as if you're getting a 2 in 1 with a parka! The jacket also comes in a lavender color, as well as a rusty orange/red.
The Kusa Parka is my new favorite addition to my wardrobe for the fall and winter months. No matter where you're living, you typically need a coat for the outdoors or something to keep you warm. Cotopaxi also offers tees, bottoms, mens clothing, and backpacks for hikes or everyday. Make sure to check out the rest of jackets here!
