Make, Care, & Fit

How does it fit?

The Vagisoft Harka fits about the same as a long overcoat — one that has a hood, built-in fingerless gloves, and features luxurious Vagisoft. It runs true to size, so order the same size you would for a jacket. If you don't know your exact size, order a size up.

How do I care for it?

Machine wash cold, tumble dry low.

Vital Statistics

  • Fabric: 100% Vagisoft (a synthetic fleece) inside and out!
  • Built-in fingerless gloves.
  • Two large pockets.
  • Exactly one hood.

Men’s Full-Length Zippered Fleece Robe

We made a limited number of Harkas in 2012, and they're all long since gone. We’re thinking about making more, but only if enough folks want 'em.

Here Betabrand fan and Harka creator a.k.a. Harkatect Will Abbott explains how this luxurious hoodie/parka hybrid came to be:

I dreamed up the Harka while drinking cocktails on my couch one Saturday morning. Truth be told, the name is about as lazy as I am: hoodie + parka = Harka.

The Harka was designed to encourage activities like lazing and general snack grazing, especially when the weather calls for covering yourself head to toe in something warm and comfy like Vagisoft.

The Harka is all about being comfortable. It’'s about lounging around and playing video games all damn day long. It's about do-nothing Saturdays. And Sundays. And even Mondays and Tuesdays. It's about nursing beers and nursing hangovers.

It also features a full-length double zipper to make moving around easy (if that's your thing) and built-in fingerless gloves with thumb holes.

If you want to get your own Vagisoft Harka, be sure to crowdfund it into production. Remember the earlier you fund it, the bigger your discount.

Will Abbott

Will is more than just blue eyes and flashy smiles. He is a designer in San Francisco and a rare breed of actually being a native of The City. Will is Betabrand's official Harkatecht having created and designed the Harka. He believes that design is a great verb, adjective, and noun. Whatever its context, he wants to give people products they care about. From the small stuff to the big — its all important.

With a degree in industrial design and being a recreational paint-baller, fashion admirer, international traveler, video gamer, and bass player he finds the need to relax the mind and body in different ways.

Yet despite all the intensive activity Will's side for humor does come through. I mean, just look at what he did for Betabrand. The Harka... really?
