When I saw the word 'parka' it brought back memories of my scooter days. What makes this a 'parka', it's simply a long-line fleece. Not saying its not good value or anything, just wondered why it's called this.

Never said I was a mod but I was a scooter rider at the time of mods and rockers. Still love to see groups of rides out for a run with their parkas on and an array of mirrors. Couldn't afford a lammy now.

Well funny cos I wondered the same thing - to me a parka is a long green quilted jacket with a fur lined hood... so I looked it up...and this is what wikipedai says:

An anorak or parka is a type of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] with a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], often [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

The words anorak and parka have possibly been used interchangeably, but they are somewhat different garments.

so I suppose it does actualy qualify - but don't put me off it- I always hated parkas!!
