As the dead of winter approaches here in New York, it has been quite frigid. I dread walking out the door in the morning to head to work. There’s always such a chill in the air and a layer of frost on my windshield. My car, unfortunately, does not have an automatic car starter.. So, in order to stay warm on the coldest of days, I bundle up in my Canada Goose parka.
Originating in Canada and inspired by Arctic adventure, Canada Goose coats are crafted to withstand the coldest temperatures and the most diverse climates. Each coat has been tried and tested against the extremes of some of the coldest regions of the world. As I’m sure you could have guessed by the name, these coats are lined with premium goose down which is known as the world’s most natural insulator. Fun fact: The coyote fur trim around the hood actually breaks up air flow to protect the face from frostbite.. Not that I’m worried about getting frostbite on the way to work. Warmth like this, however, costs a pretty penny. These coats range in price anywhere between $700.00 and $1,500.00, depending on the style and length of the coat. I know.. You’re probably thinking, “why on Earth would someone spend that much money on a coat?” Well, they are THAT warm.
More recently, Canada Goose has developed lighter weight jackets that are suitable for high-intensity activities and warmer climates. You can pick up one of these jackets for anywhere between $400.00 and $600.00.
I swear by these coats. I personally have three of them and they are a few of the best purchases I’ve ever made (my apologies to all of the animal activists out there). Not once have I ever said, “I’m cold” while wearing my Canada Goose coat. It always keeps me toasty even if I have just a T-shirt on underneath! I’ve yet to find another coat that still looks stylish while providing unparalleled warmth and functionality.
