User Review: Canada Goose Men's Snow Mantra Parka
Fabric: See manufacturer's details
Fill: Goose Down
Price Paid: $550
I'm thoroughly impressed with the Canada Goose Snow Mantra Parka. I bought it in Anchorage, Alaska, in 1999 and it's the parka that ALWAYS keeps me warm in the coldest of weather. I've worn it in Canada during harsh arctic weather, in various places in Alaska during very windy arctic conditions and this parka does not let you down. The parts of my body not covered with this parka (i.e. my legs) -- I wore Gore-tex pants with some Arctic boots rated for -60F. In other words, yes this parka is absolutely fantastic -- but don't forget the rest of your body!!!
I love the overload of pockets -- well placed too! Usually with gloves, etc, I was able to get to whatever gear I needed in my various pockets. There is an inner waistband that connects with velcro to prevent cold air from getting to your upper body -- in extreme cold -- that was helpful.
In extreme cold weather -- you can fire up the two handwarmers (that come with the jacket -- just under the armpits -- but I have yet to do so. Wherever I went to in Alaska, Canada or even bitter cold of Nebraska -- this parka always has kept me warm. Anyone who sees it or tries it wants it (and they are *not* getting it)!
