Houdini M's Bombastic Parka is our warmest winter coat ever, created for extreme conditions and really cold climates. The new padding Primaloft® Silver Hi-Loft Ultra 200g is guaranteed to keep you warm and the seam sealed, waterproof construction keeps rain, snow and storms out.
How can we create a super warm coat that can take extreme temperatures, rain and snow without becoming bulky or heavy? That was the challenge that the Houdini design departments faced in the making of Bombastic Parka. The result exceeded our expectations. A longer cut, generous hood and the brand new 200g padding from Primaloft® makes this the perfect solution if you easily get cold in the winter.
The padding is the secret behind Bombastic Parka. The 200g Primaloft® padding provides incredible heat with a very low weight. We always use synthetic padding over down for two reasons. We don’t want to risk any birds getting hurt, but also because it performs better. Especially in damp or wet conditions. To ensure full weather protection, Bombastic Parka i made in a 3-layer shell fabric that is both lightweight, soft and durable. Built in wrist gaiters and a big hood creates a cozy feeling when the snow comes sideways or the storm is roaring through the mountains. The parka has seven pockets and pit zip ventilations.
Bombastic Parka is a fantastic everyday winter coat, but it also works for really cold days in the ski slopes or to crawl into after a cold water surf session. It will keep you warm for many winters ahead.
This garment is made in recycled and recyclable polyester. When it’s completely worn out (this takes many years), bring it back to us for recycling.

PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Hi-Loft Ultra 200g
Synthetic padding with extremely high insulation. It's lightweight, water repellant, durable and quick drying. Made with 70% recycled polyester.
Our padded garments are made with synthetic insulation from Primaloft. There are many advantages to a synthetic padding compared to down: You don’t have to tumble dry the garment with balls to regain the shape, it dries faster and it doesn’t smell when it’s damp.
- Air clothes instead of washing to save water, energy and to make the garments last longer.
- Use a washing bag to protect your garments and to prevent fibers from leaking. When cleaning the bag and filter in the machine, make sure to wipe it clean and throw the lint in your trash can. Never rinse it in water since we don’t want the fibers to end up in lakes or oceans.
- Machine wash cold.
- Use mild environmentally certified detergents and make sure to use the right dose.
- Avoid fabric softener. Besides being harmful for our environment, they have a negative impact on the garment performance, mainly moisture transportation and breathability.
- Hang dry. Just remember to introduce heat to the garment after washing to reactivate the water resistant surface of the outer fabric. Use a drying cabinet, dryer or iron. Make sure you monitor the heat so the garment does not melt.
The Circular label means that this product is made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, we want to close the loop and reuse the material we already have. But we need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us through the recycling units we have in all our own stores and at many retailers.
The Recycled label means that this garment contains at least 50% recycled fibers (often more, see product description). The source is either recycled clothes or other sources like PET bottles. We mainly use recycled polyester, which has many benefits. It reduces both CO2 emissions and water use compared to virgin polyester. How much depends on the type of recycling. One of our suppliers show 32% less CO2 emissions and 94% less water use for mechanically recycled polyester. Besides the production impact, the major shift is using "waste" as raw material instead of crude oil.
The Recyclable label means that the raw material in this product can be used for new products, instead of becoming waste. Our goal is that by 2030, we will take no raw material to our products from the earth's crust. Circular products, made from reycled and recyclable materials are a real game changer, but we need your help for the system to work. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us. We have recycle units in all of our own stores and at many retailers.
