User Review: Canada Goose Men's Resolute Parka
Price Paid: $240
When I bought it in the previous millennium it was advertised as the best parka in the world, and the only one that Canada Goose (then Snow Goose of Canada) made.
I believe it. I've worked outside in the arctic and Northern Ontario at -50C and was warm as toast. It (and I) have survived blizzards, ice storms and unseasonal rain. A friend's gloves fell out of his pockets, my spares attached to the d-rings saved his hands when the temperature plummeted.
The only maintenance I've given it is a sponge wipe with soapy water. That's all it ever needed. My only problem is deciding who will inherit it when I kick the snow bucket.
Today it's regarded as the second best, next to the Snow Mantra (also by GC).
