User Review: Canada Goose Men's Expedition Parka
Top of the line for really cold weather. If it's the real thing.
Canada Goose parkas are the standard for cold weather gear, but the descriptions you see of some of them suggest that people are buying cheap knockoffs. Real Canada Goose gear has no cold spots and is well-designed to keep its excellent down fill in place.
Because of its incredible reputation in really cold climates, and the high price of the real thing, there are a number of companies around (notably Chinese) selling them online or through discount outlets. Look on the 'Canada Goose' website for information on piracy issues.
If someone is selling an 'Expedition' for $295, you can bet it's a phony.
