canada goose mens bomber After years of buying cheap coats that would only last a handful of winters I said yes to the $700 parka two years ago and haven’t regretted it one bit!!! No more freezing and constant layering of the semi-warm coat and multiple warm sweaters to get through winter!! Also really helped when I sold the car and start taking the bus!! The way I figured it was that I won’t have to buy a coat for the next 10 years!! (~$70/year) I bought Canada Goose not so much for the name but also for the fit, I’m taller than most. Same with the boots, also Canadian-made company $250 and they are on their 4th winter and I’m sure I’ll have them for another 4!!
canada goose mens jacket I’ll be wearing my Goose until there are no feathers left in it!!!
No. Not even if I still lived in Canada.
canada goose parka mens I live in Ottawa and walk 30min each way to/from work the whole winter. With the right layering, I feel toasty warm in my old and worn ski jacket even in -40 wind chill. It’s the face, hands, and feet that feel the chill more. I would invest in a good pair of gloves and socks instead.
You can get a great really warm Mountain Hardware or North Face Down Filled winter Jacket for half that price. So in my opinion No. Not worth the price to me.
canada goose outlet store Canada Goose = status symbol = vain waste of money….
Bought a wonderful Mark’s Work Wearhouse HD3 Tmax car coat for an amazing sale price of $125. It is warmer than ANYTHING I’ve ever owned. Also, no innocent coyotes were killed so I could parade around in my overpriced dumb jacket like a complete tool.
canada goose mens sale Just to point out to the people throwing out the overpriced card. If this company is going to the extremes to source the feathers and manfucator the coats in Canada do you think they’re paying their employee’s minimum wage? Giving people a fair wage means a product isn’t going to be as cheap as one made in China. Just think about that.
canada goose outlet I presently own and wear a 12-year-old Linda Lundstrom Laparka, which was the coat of choice for teachers doing outside supervision in central Manitoba. I wore a light jacket today since it was only -17 C but I have to admit that I have been looking at the down since the original Laparka is no longer made. If a product is really good for our conditions and made in Canada – and will last – then it just might be worth the cost.
canada goose parka sale 25 years ago, my dad bought me a parka from Army & Navy, with the fur trimmed hood that “tunnels” out. Between that, my hubbies work snow pants from Marks Workwearhouse and Sorel felt-lined boots, I’m nice and toasty any day I venture out in -40 here in SK. The parka is waaaaaay to warm for anything above -30C….so I rarely need to use it. (Because I’m much wimpier in my older age, and don’t go outside unless I absolutely have to!) When my son finishes his final growth spurt, we’ll take him either to Marks or Peavey Mart to get outdoor winter work gear.
I admit I have no sense of fashion…..but I do have a sense of warmth!
canada goose outlet sale Cheap coats are like cheap shoes–they fall apart quickly. I have no problem getting a cheap coat for the kidlet–he’s never going to wear it for a second winter.
I don’t think you have to spend $700 to get a good coat. I do think that, if you’re looking for a good coat at WalMart, you’re probably not going to find one.
canada goose mens In agreement with everyone else…STATUS SYMBOL… I have down filled North Face jacket for 5 yrs and it is toasty warm for the brittle winds of Ottawa. I paid $300 for it. Also, I don’t have to have “coyote” trimmed hood (really!)
canada goose outlet nyc It is nice to see “Canadian Made” however as stated it has now been bought by a USA company who will and I guarantee it outsource the coats to be made in China or India and will not be the same quality that people like to say they are!! Good Luck with that “Canada Goose”
canada goose parka womens I seriously considered if for the reasons listed. Especially the Canadian aspect, but no proof the coats are made in a union environment. I also despise labels and looking like everyone else. I ended up buying an $80 Joe Brand parka, removed the yucky furry hood, and had the zipper replaced at the farmers market for $30. This is my third winter wearing it. This winter I have been walking and taking transit, and the quality of my plain black Joe coat is fine. With apologies and thanks to the folks who made a pittance making it for me.
canada goose outlet chicago Sure, let’s all buy cheap Chinese so we don’t have to work because there’ll be no work. Let’s all fill the landfill with their garbage that lasts a few months and then has to be dumped. Wrong to spend so much money when we can keep Chinese in work and our own people on the streets. Get to it, support the Chinese economy
Yes, in a heartbeat. Growing up in Saskatchewan taught me the value of warmth and safety at an early age.
canada goose sale Absolutely! For the first 40 years of my life, I froze and shivered through winter. Then I discovered those really warm coats and I have never been cold again. I am not the type of person who has to change coat every year so paying a high price doesn’t bother me. One of my warm coats is 20 years old and still looks brand new. It’s still very very warm also. I could go out in -40° and still be warm.
canada goose jackets on sale My daughter ( style changes slightly each year) first year of university 7 years ago. It is still going strong, looks great. Good purchase while waiting for buses during university and now for her commute.
canada goose jacket womens Canada goose is made in Winnipeg by the Richlu Family, they started in Toronto but it has been here for 60+ years. There are still some clothing manufacturers in Winnipeg. Silver jeans come to mind and there is another family who makes the outerwear for the armed forces and did a generous donation of outerwear and sleeping bags to one of the shelters for the homeless(Siloam Mission)
I would if I could, especially if manufacturing stays in Canada. I spend a hundred buck on a winter coat at Pennington’s a couple of years back–not an insignificant amount for someone on a limited income. The seams started splitting within the first year, and now it just looks like junk.
canada goose sale mens If I can manage it, this year I’ll be getting a new coat that will (hopefully) not be made in a sweatshop and will last a couple of years.
Kerry, your wool coat looks just fine (and very warm). My only problem with it is that it’s not a parka, which is garment much more suited to my outdoor activities.
No, but that’s because I live in south Louisiana, USA, on the Gulf Coast. Still, like many posters, I imagine you can stay warm for much less than $700. At $700, it’s not the COAT that’s being fleeced….
canada goose jacket mens sale Yes, it’s worth it. I live in Winnipeg – we don’t understand why someone in Toronto would need one, but if you are going to be outside in temperatures below -40, then a Canada Goose is totally practical. Think to try to walk a dog when it is -36 AND windy. Or having to stand at a bus stop waiting for twenty minutes at 7 am & it’s that cold. Not many works, including the overpriced (& not well made) North Face parkas. To be fair, Mountain Equipment Co-op has similar stuff at half the price, but they are made in China, & probably not as warm if you’re going up North.
I am still warm and toasty in my knee-length wool coat from Winners purchased 5 years ago for $80. No killing of coyotes required for my warmth!
canada goose sale womens Living in Saskatchewan which is probably only rivaled by Manitoba and Nunavut on how cold it gets I had announced in the fall that I was going to buy one of these jackets. However, I’m cheap and kept stalling due to the price. Then when waiting over an hour outside in -25 weather to get into Greycup events I noticed two girls in front of me wearing Canada Goose Parkas. They were jumping around as if in death throes due to the cold and right then I decided I wasn’t buying that jacket. For that price, they should have been the most comfortable people in line and that definitely wasn’t evident. I went and bought a down filled Point Zero Parka for 50% off coming to a cool $125. It’s definitely more Sugly than Sexy bought don’t care.
When I lived in New Brunswick I didn’t have a need for an expensive goose down jacket, my snowboard jacket with a sweater on those really cold days was all I needed.
canada goose jacket mens Now that I live in Regina Saskatchewan where the temperatures can dip well below -40C with the windchill, I really appreciate the Canada Goose jacket that I bought two years ago. I agree it is not essential, there are many other people staying warm in Regina without the Canada Goose logo on their sleeve, but on those really cold days I really appreciate the warmth of the coat and while standing on the corner waiting for the crosswalk sign to change when the windchill is -45C, I am glad I paid even a high price for the comfort.
canada goose jacket clearance I think it comes down to what part of the country you live in. This coat is probably overkilled on Toronto, but in the prairies, it is very valuable. So the price should be relative to how much comfort it will bring you.
A good winter coat and winter boots are definitely something I do not skimp on. I have a good down parka and boots that have lasted me for at least 4 winters now (maybe more). If it is cold, I put the hood over my toque and I am toasty warm.
But, I will not pay $700 for a Canada Goose. I am more than willing to pay more for Canadian made products, but that kind of money is just not in the budget. And I am not a fan of the use of coyote fur.
canada goose store I recently bought the Kensington jacket and don’t regret it one bit. I didn’t buy it for the brand but for the warmth, the quality and the lifetime warranty not to mention it is made in Canada. The North Face jacket I had stood up to Halifax winters but didn’t cut it in northern Alberta. Quality and performance are worth every penny.
CG is definitely a status symbol hence the ridiculous price -but the trend must be over because yes, CG does go on ‘sale’, since you can now get them at Costco.
My wife just bought me a Canada Goose coat and I must say that I absolutely love it. I walk over 40 minutes every workday outdoors and no other coat has ever kept me warmer. The hood and collar do an awesome job protecting the face and neck from windchill and sleeves are excellently designed to seal off the cold.
I had a North Face coat in the past (that broke) and I find that Canada Goose is much better.
canada goose vest camo I would not buy anything that had to have a coyote killed to line the hood! and most likely not $700 for a down coat – there are many other as warm ones out there. Like someone else said, one needs to also make sure one’s feet, face, and hands are as protected.
NO WAY!! That is an outrageous price. The markup must be HUGE.
Dare I say it, but even from south of the border, same quality, same warranty (women’s), comparable coat:
LL Bean – $269
Patagonia – $299
Eddie Bauer – $229 – $249
Barbour – $250 (on sale at a Barbour outlet; normally $550) – where another seller
(UK) advertises this women’s Canada Goose parka for 733 POUNDS, or
CAD $1274.00. What the??
canada goose freestyle vest These online prices available to anyone.
Shop around, esp. at manufacturers’ outlets and/or Boxing Day sales, Etsy and others.
As importantly, do your homework on kinds and qualities of down…
canada goose vest mens sale For all who say the price is not worth it: Not if you live down south where it is warm all year.
I bought my Canada Goose coat in the 1990s and have been extremely pleased with it. Here in Labrador we often have the temperatures drop for a week or more where the daytime high might reach, before adding wind chill, to a balmy -30. At times I am outside for two to four house and I assure you that in those temperatures a warm Canada Goose parka is worth every cent. As well, I have had mine for about 20 years and it is still in rather a good shape. Perhaps not as attractive as the day I bought it but at -35 sane people are more interested in functionality than looks. So about 20 years and I paid less than $700 originally, less than $500 if memory serves correctly, I think it was well worth it.
I dunno. Sounds too much to me, especially when a little layering will do just fine. Maybe it really depends on your climate.
why is canada goose so expensive To all the people objecting to the coyote fur, I’m assuming you’ve never lost a pet to one or had your child attacked by one. They’ve moved into Toronto and when I lived there, it seemed like every week there was a new missing cat poster up and I remember the headlines when one attacked and killed a family dog in their backyard. I’m fairly certain I heard about a child attacked too, but not killed.
Now I’m not saying coyotes should be hunted to extinction but taking responsibility for the excess population by putting them to use sounds like a reasonable and wise solution.
list of fake canada goose sites I had a Canada Goose parka for the last 8 years, but it was starting to look old and I accidentally ripped it. Having a newborn a $700 jacket wasn’t something I was ready to buy. We went looking for jackets all over. Stumbled upon the Sears Alpine… and holy crap is it awesome. Totally comparable to my old Canada Goose… and it was only $220!
canada goose factory sale I bought the Sears knock-off for $179+tax. I love it. I once paid $700 for a down-filled snowboard jacket for my son. It tore just the same as a $100 dollar one and after two winters weren’t “cool” anymore. So no I wouldn’t pay $700 for a CG. That is flat out a ridiculous price and I can say that cause I actually HAVE paid that before and it was NOT worth it!
canada goose black friday I have a MEC down parka that has kept me warm in parts of Canada like the Northwest Territories. After 10 years of use, there are some minor scuffing but it is still going strong and just as toasty warm. It is well designed plus it costs only half as much.
fake canada goose websites I lived in Siberia for 23 years so I can judge. $700 for a winter jacket… Hmmm… As any woman, I should have lots of jackets for lots of occasions: classy, trendy, moody, Weatherly and simply a coat/jacket that matches my new boots/shoes or a new purse. They also should be up-to-date I think so I change them every 2-3 years to have a modern look. I would never buy so expensive jacket that I can use for couple years only and look like the same Xmas tree every winter… I will better buy more different coats for lesser price… So I say NO to this jacket!
canada goose vest sale I’m in Toronto too, and I don’t think for a second that all of those “Canada Goose” jackets I see are legit. There is a thriving market of knockoffs.
canada goose coat sale I don’t own one. You get what u pay for inpatient cases
If I live in Vancouver no I wouldn’t buy but if I lived in
Yellowknife I would
Interesting comments from people who call it a status
Symbol but in the same sentence say they own
North face gear. Hellloooo north face is just the same
cheap canada goose womens I understand the need for warm clothing in Canada. But I must believe this coat is overpriced. It cannot be that much better than a $500 coat. And the coyote trim. Whatever your feelings about coyotes keep in mind that many a coyote fur is actually the dog. Further gives one pause…or is that paws. Surely people kept warm in Canada before this coat came along and they will continue to keep warm, one presumes.
Too much money. I’m sure there are lots of coats which are comparably warm, and layering is better for you in all kinds of weather.
Coyotes – people aren’t killing them FOR the jackets. They are being hunted anyway.
Warranty – what the heck does this REALLY mean?
“Warranted to the original owner against defects in material and workmanship for the lifetime of the product.”
umm, the lifetime of the product is how long it lasts. If it falls apart, who decides whether it is covered as being ‘within the lifetime of the product’? What a stupid wording.
canada goose coat mens So I bought a Canada Goose Snow Mantra coat in fall 2006 about 7 years ago. It is still in perfect condition. When I wore it in -48 I was able to wear a t-shirt underneath. This is not the slim light Canada goose that some people are talking about this is the 12-pound behemoth of a coat that has a built-in scarf enough reflective tape to light up an airfield and allows you to work when everyone else is hiding inside because it is too cold. I take it on every winter road-trip because if I end up in the ditch for a night I will be alive the next day. The same coat now sells for over $1000 and I wouldn’t sell it even if I was offered me that. A few years ago my wife kept getting sick in the winter. I got her a Canada goose Resolute parka and she hasn’t had a cold since.
If you don’t want to be cold ever again get a goose. I would love to buy their stock but as most really good companies are they are privately owned.
canada goose coat I bought a CG Resolute parka about 6 years ago for working outside on winter nights. Best money I ever spent. The jacket still looks like new.
I agree that most people wear them as a status symbol esp in my hometown of Toronto. I think that statement rings true for the city-oriented coats.
I should also add that I placed a group order directly from CG for 10 coats & that greatly reduced the cost per jacket.
canada goose womens sale I have an almost 30-year old “Snow Goose” down coat. “Snow Goose” was the earlier name of Canada Goose. It was my main winter coat for nearly 20 years and I still wear it. It’s more comfortable than my newer Northface parka. If the new ones are as good, then $700 doesn’t seem like too much for made in Canada with ethically obtained down (no live plucking-shudder)and fur (no factory fur farming).
canada goose vest womens Definitely not worth it. You can get a coat of similar, exceptionally high quality from a number of brands such as Marmot for less than half the price, especially if you buy at the end of the season (they do go on sale). I used to want a CG coat, but at the same moment that I discovered its insanely high price and the fact that the hood was lined with coyote fur (Why? Cruelty for cruelty’s sake?), I started seeing them everywhere. Every poser in the world dawned their new status symbol, and I knew that CG was something to be avoided. Turns out that the vast majority of the CG jackets that you see on the street are counterfeit, but even if not, who really makes so much money that they can afford such an expensive jacket, especially when they live in southern Canada? Every time I see someone in one, I assume that they’re either a broke idiot desperately craving the approval of others, or a rich idiot who should have figured out a better use for their money.
canada goose vest womens I used to work at Transport Canada and saw all the Coast Guard guys wearing them (the standard issue if you are in cold climates). I asked about them and was told they were very good quality and very warm. Four years ago I bought my Canada Goose coat. It was worth it. It is in perfect shape, it is seriously warm (I sweat indoors, and feel no cold where I am covered by the coat. I can go for long walks and handle the cold better than my non-CG wearing kin). Would I buy it again – yes? Do I hate everyone coveting my coat because it’s the in thing – yes, in fact, I am always worried about someone stealing it, so I never leave it unattended when I’m out? That is the one issue I have with the coat!
canada goose womens sale You can get the same warmth, quality, and utility from an Eddie Bauer parka. I have had an Eddie Bauer parka for – wait – 31 years – and it is still the best coat I have ever had. 31 years! It was over $300.00 then – my Mom wanted me to be warm – but is not about the same amount. Great parka, great value.
canada goose clearance I have a snow goose parka that has taken me through at least 15 Yellowknife winters. It is great for traveling to smaller communities as it stashes anywhere and is warm. It is also reasonably light and gives some protection to your face. It accessories well with down mitts, snow pants, and wool, fur or fleece hats and scarves. In a pinch, you can stuff your wallet, cell phone, etc. in pockets. I didn’t know it was a fashion statement
