Review: Triple F.A.T. Goose Chenega Parka
It came to me via an ad in Facebook of all things. I had searched off and on for a parka for the cold winter weather that has become de rigueur in the Northeast and the Triple F.A.T. Goose ad promised same-day delivery via a bicycle delivery service, UberRush.
I wasn’t familiar with the company or its products but, as it turned out, it was a highly regarded urban brand in the 80s and 90s. A little more reading on the company revealed that F.A.T. stands for “For Arctic Temperatures.” Perfect!
With a trip to Scandinavia on the docket and no parka, the advert was hard to resist. I placed my order mid morning, with a promise of a late afternoon delivery. Since I was running a few errands with my brother, and was following the UberRush bike rider on the web, I jokingly predicted we’d cross paths with the parka at some point.
My brother and I were on our way back to the house when we saw a lone cyclist with a large box sticking out of his backpack. Bingo! That had to be my UberRush delivery. Theodore, who had pedaled to Queens from Manhattan (don’t worry, he gets paid by the mile), was happy to see us and bring his trip to a close about two miles short of his destination. He admitted no one had ever flagged him down before but seemed happy we did, particularly when I presented him with donuts from Dunkin’, which I had gotten for him since I had been told drivers do not accept tips.
THE TRIPLE F.A.T. GOOSE CHENEGA PARKA
I had opted for the Chenega three-quarters length parka and my initial impression, upon opening the box once back home, was that the parka was very well made with high-quality materials and excellent construction. To keep it good looking it uses Teflon Shield+ to fend off soil and stains and so far, it has maintained its brand new appearance.
