While it has been unseasonably warm here in England (50°F / 10°C instead of 35°F / 2°C) it is usually the season, the end of January, where I have to pull out my warmest layers and for the past three winters that has been this warm Canada Goose jacket.
For two seasons in New York I hemmed and hawed over buying this jacket not loving the branding on the shoulder or how much of a cult item it had become but after booking a trip to Iceland I bit the bullet and bought one. And my only regret is that I did not do it sooner. I did quite a bit of research and the heavyweight, non-stretch Arctic Tech weave fabric and the water resistant material that goes down to mid-thigh were the biggest selling points for me.
I tried quite a few different styles and ended up going with the Canada Goose Victoria Parka which is one of the most simple designs. The official warmth rating on the site means the jacket will keep you warm until the temperature drops below -14° F / -20°C and I have absolutely NO plans of going anywhere that cold. Take a look at all of the places my jacket has been including Paris, Russia, Bucharest, Iceland, New York, and all over the United Kingdom!
