Things we considered when designing our sPARKA

Sustainable Materials

  • The fabrics we use are made with low-impact fiber reactive dyes, which are free from heavy metals, chemical mordants, and azo dyes.
  • The dyeing cycle is shorter than for conventional dying processes, resulting in lower water, salt, and chemicals requirements.
  • Polyester and recycled polyester fabrics are durable, wrinkle-resistant, and easy to care for.

Long Lasting Design

  • The sPARKA is constructed using quality durable materials, by our experienced manufacturing partner.
  • We use polyester and recycled polyester fabrics, which are long lasting materials. The small amount of spandex blended with polyester in the shell fabric helps with shape retention.
  • We've designed a thigh length parka with a full length two-way separating zipper supplied by YKK Canada. You can open the bottom slider for walking to reduce the stress load on the zipper and help extend its lifespan.

How To Prolong Your sPARKA's Lifespan

  • We encourage you to follow the easy care instructions.
  • By decreasing washes and line drying, you can conserve water and energy.

    Good for everyday use!

    I’ve worn my sPARKA on my morning walks over the past winter. It kept me warm on windy sunny days (5-6 degrees), and kept me dry on rainy days. The hood is perfect as it doesn’t restrict my vision. The sPARKA is thigh length and has a full front zipper that could unzip from the bottom, so it doesn’t limit my stride and makes it comfortable for walking.

    Perfect for swim meets and looks cool

    I have been wearing my sPARKA for a few months now and absolutely love it. It keeps me warm during swim meets and the pockets are perfect to hold goggles and cap etc. I like the length of the sPARKA that goes down to the thigh. This looks and feels so much better than the old-school swim parka which is more like a sleeping bag. Love the look and feel of this modern, versatile parka.

    Standard features of warm lining and waterproof shell for a swim parka. What really stands out is how luxurious it feels with the outer fabric (maybe it is the weight?) and the details like the elastic at the cuff and the bottom. Plus I just like to stand out wearing white and having a swim parka that doesn't look like one.

    Great jacket for going to and from the pool!

    A can-do-all jacket perfect for throwing on during transit. It can handle any conditions, and negates having to lug multiple layers to the pool - especially in the winter when it can get cold outside. Also, LOVE the deep pockets that can actually fit everything. Works perfect!

    High Quality and Beautiful - My Go-To Winter Parka

    I bought a white sPARKA from Tingting Athletics, and I’m so happy with it! They handled my order with care and delivered it quickly. My sPARKA was bundled up with a sustainable ribbon, which was so cute that I didn’t want to untie it. The coat is stylish in photos and even better in person! My default coat color is black, and I can’t believe how refreshing it is to sport an optic white parka. The quality is outstanding as well. I love it! Since it’s lined and waterproof, this is definitely my go-to winter parka.
