Parajumpers is a line of high-tech outerwear founded in 2005 by designer Massimo Rossetti.

For American-inspired outerwear with an Italian edge, the men's Parajumpers jackets collection showcases a wide range of high-functioning jackets. Offering rustic Alaskan tones with cutting edge detailing, these classic parkas and jackets offer lightweight nylon blends trimmed in sumptuous furs.

How To Care For Your Men's Parajumpers Jacket
Take good care of your jacket, and it'll feel as good as new for years. Washing guidelines can vary depending on your model, but all Parajumpers jackets come with clear instructions on their care labels.
Most jackets are machine washable. If your care label says you can machine wash your jacket, wash it at 30°C(86°Fahrenheit) on a gentle cycle. We recommend that you wash your jacket inside out. If you've purchased a padded jacket, don't use "Eco Mode" cycles to wash it.
For soaps and detergents, you can use any as long as they're mild. We recommend that you don't use fabric softener and that you rinse your jacket well. At the end of the washing cycle, spin your jacket (twice, if you need to) as this will get rid of water. You can then lay your jacket on a flat surface to dry, fluffing the down up every so often by giving the jacket a gentle pat.
If you want to have your jacket professionally cleaned, ask the cleaner to wash it in water as opposed to dry cleaning it. The only exceptions to this are jackets with a care label showing the washing symbol crossed out (and the dry cleaning one not).
