Supermodel Kate Upton is already known for her enormous … accomplishments, but her most impressive by far took place in December 2012. Wearing little more than boots and a bikini bottom, the 20-year-old Florida native posed for the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2013 Swimsuit Issue aboard the megayacht Le Boreal—in Antarctica. “It was freezing,” the astute Upton later said of posing with ice floes and emperor penguins. “I was working so hard to keep warm.”
canada goose outlet What Upton failed to mention was that she had a little help. Covering her shoulders and various adjacent areas was a fur-lined Canada Goose jacket. The published photographs (which ran under the headline “Polar Bear”) were a memorable event for men on many continents, but they were advertising gold for Canada Goose, which has suddenly become the hottest cold-weather coat in the world. Not long ago, “Canada Goose was primarily a purely functional, technical brand,” observed retail consultancy J.C. Williams senior advisor Bruce Winder. “Somehow, they’ve become cool and prestigious.”

Winder, whose office is in Toronto, can be forgiven his mild surprise. After all, Canada Goose is nothing new to Canadians. But the fact that the coat is quintessentially Canadian—made in Canada by people who understand a thing or two about freezing temperatures—helps explain its mythic status. At a time when every apparel brand on the market claims to be genuine and authentic, Canada Goose really is.
canada goose black friday This brand of the moment has actually been around since 1957, initially going by the name Metro Sportswear. For three decades, the company made coats for cops and park rangers, and also (quietly) for labels like L.L. Bean and Eddie Bauer. Only in 1993 did incoming CEO Dani Reiss make the pivotal decision to sell Canada Goose coats under their own name. The competition was stiff, but the brand had a key advantage: its reputation. “We’ve been in this business a long time, outfitting everyone from Arctic bush pilots to industrial workers in the coldest places on earth,” Reiss said. “We don’t need to make up stories about our product.”
canada goose mens sale Which is not to say that Canada Goose hasn’t done some very clever marketing. It’s 2012 decision to sponsor the Sundance Film Festival put coats on the backs of 300 tastemakers, helping to establish a celebrity cult following that’s grown to include Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper, Sarah Silverman and Daniel Craig.
And, of course, Kate Upton, who later joked that “the penguins kept me going” on that freezing photo shoot. Maybe so. But Canada Goose’s $595 Chilliwack Bomber jacket probably helped.
canada goose black friday I love my Canada Goose men’s Chilliwack bombers jacket. It’s very warm and has a fabulous hood. I almost didn’t buy the coat because of the hood but after wearing it outside in very cold conditions, I’m so glad I purchased this one. The hood extends out quite far from your face, protecting it from wind chill. Overall, extremely pleased with this purchase.
An exquisite bomber style down jacket, ideal for its design and purposes. BUT, it takes a bit of getting used to the high hand pockets. They are almost up to the armpits. Weird, but to be tolerable because the fit and style of the jacket are perfect otherwise, and I could not find anything similar anywhere else online.
canada goose mens sale I bought this coat because I was told it was the warmest coat you could find. There are a number of things I do not like about this coat. I hated the fact the bottom part of the coat did not close. No matter how warm the coat kept my upper body, the wind blew up the coat reducing the warmth of the coat. The neck on the coat is extremely tight and choked me. I also do not like the fact real fur is used for the hood.
I ended up selling the coat to a friend for half price because she wanted the coat and I was unhappy with the way it fit and the way it opened on the bottom. I am 5’8″ 133 pounds. I always take a medium. I bought this coat in medium and it was tight and short on me. The large was too big.
canada goose mens Beautifully made, very warm. Be careful with the crap that comes from China..knockoffs. They are on Amazon too. Look for coats that are sold be authorized dealers of CA. Moosejaw, camp saver, etc. A lot of the coats sold directly from Amazon and not an authorized dealer of CA are fakes. I got duked once with a coat filled with chicken feathers. You can find a list of authorized dealers at canadagoose.com Amazon needs to do a better job of keeping the fraudulent coats off their site. I hope this helps.
canada goose outlet I bought the Canada Goose and received it today. I ordered a size up. I am 5’10” 145lbs…..I ordered a size up due to the medium being completely out of stock everywhere and all the comments stating to order large. If you are a heavier person I would suggest to order a size up as the jacket is made to clinch at the waist and may not be the most flattering. If you are on the thinner/medium side I would order true to size as it’s meant to fit true to form. Ordering a large I looked like the Michelin Man. I decided for the price to return it. Although the jacket is beautiful, and BTW please check their website they list authorized dealers and now hologram the actual product to protect against counterfeiting, I just couldn’t see, or feel that much of a difference from North Face’s arctic parka for the money, which I felt fit BETTER, and had a longer length in the front. The Kensington has a split in the middle. Check TJMax I have seen them there often but you have to check frequently. North Face also holograms their product inside on a tag.
canada goose jacket clearance I love this coat. I tried the North Face Arctic Parka, but it wasn’t as warm. I have a 5-year-old Marmot 650 down fill in Navy Blue that is very warm., but I wanted a different color. This coat is as warm as my Marmot, maybe warmer. As for size, I usually wear an XS petite in Ann Taylor/Eileen Fisher clothes, so I ordered the XXS Kensington Parka. It fit like a glove, but I could not wear a thick sweater under it, so, unfortunately, had to send it back. I ended up ordering the XS from another site and I can wear a light fleece or sweater. The XXS had shorter sleeves and the length of the jacket was shorter as well, which I liked (great for petites), I will have to have the sleeves on XS altered. So the other reviewers were correct when saying to order up a size!
canada goose jacket womens Bought it in Red… Quality 5 stars, Warmth down to below zero temps 5 STARS and compliments from strangers on such a sharp looking coat… 5 STARS! 🙂
I bought this as a gift for my wife and she absolutely loves it. I waited for one winter pass before I wrote this review because I wanted to gauge my wife’s reaction after one full winter was done. She is still in love with this coat and was actually looking forward to wearing it…The construction seems to be solid and it has the guarantee of a very reliable brand name.
canada goose coat mens It looks pretty in the photos, however, the fit is a bit different when you wear it. It makes my hips look huge (I’m 5’6″ 120lb). I got size small which is perfect with a t-shirt underneath the parka. Then, when I put a fleece over my t-shirt and the parka on top it is a bit tight, not unbearable but a little uncomfortable. Size M would have been too big for me. Another thing that I don’t like are the pockets. They’re really small and I do have small hands. If I want to rest my hands in my pockets I need to remove the gloves (with no place to put them). Even without the gloves, the pockets are small. I read this somewhere and I agree: the neck is WAY TOO TIGHT without a layer; with a layer, you can’t zip the parka all the way up. Also, look closely at the zipper, there’s a huge Canada goose thing hanging on the zipper and it looks cheesy when you zip up. This parka is thin and lightweight, not sure if it is warm enough. I’ll wait for a cold day to test it outside and let you guys know.
canada goose coat I love this parka! I bought a white one two years ago when I was in WI. I really enjoyed this parka! Very warm and high quality. If you are living in the really cold area, this coat is perfect! After I moved to the slightly warmer area, I am not wearing this much.
If you are living in the slightly warmer area, more stylish goose parka such as Moncler might be a good choice. Amazon is not selling Moncler much but you could check at some other stores: https://www.st-edwards-cam.org.uk/
Bottom line is Canada Goose is perfect for some cold area. If you need less bulky and more stylish goose padding, Moncler might be another option.
canada goose jacket womens Canada goose has the worst customer service!
My girlfriend and I bought two parkas for this winter. We bought them from retailers recommended by the Canada goose website. I was expecting a high-quality jacket for the price we paid ($800). The boy was I wrong. The jacket is definitely warm but it sheds feathers. My jacket has some loose threads already at the seams. My girlfriend’s jacket’s zipper stopped working after a month of use! So we called the Canada Goose. Never reached a liver person- despite waiting on the phone for 30 plus minutes and leaving several messages!!!! Still waiting for that callback. We finally got in touch with someone and they told us they would repair it in 4-6 weeks!!!!!!! Are you kidding me! We live in Chicago and the mercury has been dropping like crazy!
Overall a very disappointing experience! Poor quality.. even worse customer service (actually nonexistent). If you are going to charge so much money for a product at least produce a good quality product!
Way too small! I’m 5’11 and a size 14-16. Usually 14. I ordered the Navy XXL to have some room for a heavy sweater. Not happening. This XXL is more like a size 12. And it was described as just above the knee..this coat was barely below my lower hip. Too bad; the color and fur are really cute. Maybe it’s a Canadian thing, but the sizes are way off. I’d order two sizes above my usual coat size.
canada goose coat mens For all you people who think this is an amazing brand, you’re wrong. The material is very cheap. The dye will fade. The sleeve will start tearing and the fur collar is extremely cheap. They literally glued loose pieces of fur together. If you gently tug it a huge chunk of fur will come out.
I am not a big girl, just tall whatever that means (1,79 m), but this X-Large Parka is for midgets only. Just not wearable. For whomever this may concern: order at least 2 sizes bigger! The Parka itself is really great, the best quality I ever saw. I just gave one star to get some attraction and people read this because you will definitely be disappointed if you order it too small.
canada goose coat sale This coat is not warm at all and does not live up to the claims or specs that Canada Goose makes. It is fine for temperatures that average 30-40 degrees F. But once temperatures plummet to 0 to 15 degrees F the coat is no more than a windbreaker. Layering does not improve the coat’s effectiveness.
I HOPE ALL OF YOU THAT PURCHASE ARE OKAY WITH YOUR TORTURE JACKET. I hope the suffering of animals keep you warm at night and you can sleep well thinking of animals suffering in inhumane leg traps for hours/days for you to be warm…because obviously everyone in synthetic fabrics isn’t warm. Shame on you, do you even have a conscience?
canada goose coat mens This is disgusting in this day and age to be using real animal fur when there are synthetic options out there that work just as well. Watch a video of these poor coyotes in leg hold traps before purchasing one of these coats. So horribly cruel. But, people will buy them like lemmings because those in Hollywood with no compassion wear them. Disgusting
canada goose jacket womens Have you seen the undercover videos how animals were ripped from their skin alive to later be put on a sweater like this one, this is not fashioned this is Inhumane Cruelty, unnecessary Cruelty…. So many ways to make fashion like items without the need to rip the skin apart a live animal plus added the life they lived in a cage where their legs can’t even stretch, nor can they play, feel loved, live the life of an animal to later have their skin ripped apart and die to suffer in agony, fear, and pain. Animals are social they fear, they love, they are cold, they are warm just like us. This is not a way of living this is inhumane cruelty and buying fur is agreeing to all that comes with it. Behind the scenes!!
Canada Goose had one of the busiest shopping days of the year interrupted by raucous protestors.
Roughly 200-plus animal rights activists led by members of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals gathered in the late afternoon of Black Friday outside the year-old Canada Goose store in New York’s SoHo neighborhood. The block of Wooster Street where the store is located is home to a number of luxury and fashion brands, including Chanel, Balmain and Ted Baker.
canada goose jacket clearance While dozens of shoppers inside the Canada Goose store appeared to be doing little more than waiting out the protestors and a sizable crowd that had gathered to stare, photograph and in a few instances join in, PETA activists chanted, held signs and handed out fliers graphically describing and disparaging the use of down and coyote fur in Canada Goose’s popular winter coats.
A Canada Goose spokeswoman said PETA and other animal rights activist are “grossly misinformed” about the company’s practices around down and fur.
canada goose outlet “They ignore the strict government regulation and standards that are in place, as well as our commitment to the responsible use and ethical sourcing of all animal materials in our products,” the spokeswoman said. “While we are unsurprised by their attempt to capitalize on the popularity of our SoHo store, we are appalled by the extreme and deplorable behavior of this small but vocal minority.”
”Canada Goose has blood on its hands!” and “Fur isn’t fashioned! Where the hell is your compassion!” were among the protest chants on rotation during the protest, but other activists had their own methods.
canada goose mens A blonde woman dressed in black holding a white poster with “Animal fur isn’t the fashion” written in the simple black maker and draped with a fur stole yelled at multiple people walking by the scene with a pet and asked if they would “skin and wear it.” Others began walking through the crowd that had formed across the street and lamely harangued those wearing leather and fur.
”Oh, I’m sure everyone thinks you’re so cool for wearing that,” one protestor said to a man wearing a cream jacket with a fur collar. The man turned and left.
canada goose mens sale There were roughly 10 policemen and women on the scene, but the protest was not violent and around 5 p.m, they began breaking up onlookers, telling them it was illegal to block the sidewalk.
PETA was also set to protest a Canada Goose store in Boston on what the group has dubbed “Fur-Free Friday.”
Canada Goose has been a point of ire for PETA for several years, in part because the brand claims to use “ethically sourced” materials.
canada goose black friday The group has staged protests of Canada Goose before and last month, outspoken PETA member Pamela Anderson emailed more than 800 of the brand’s employees, describing the use of traps for wild coyotes and pointing out that a number of brands, like The North Face and Patagonia, have gone fur- and down-free.
