Parka
Parka - A warm hip-length weatherproof coat with a fur trimmed hood, originally worn by Eskimos or Inuits. Originally made from caribou or seal, it was invented by the Caribou Inuit of the Arctic region, who needed clothing that would protect them from wind chill and wet while hunting and kayaking. The word parka is of Aleut origin.
