User Review: Canada Goose Men's Tundra Down Pant
Fabric: Poly-cotton outer shell, treated with Teflon
Fill: Duck Down
Price Paid: $89.95
In preparation for a winter trip to Alaska, I purchased a pair of Canada Goose Tundra down pants from Sierra Trading Post. And I wasn't disappointed.
Standing all day on the frozen surface of a lake covered in two feet of snow, at -10 degrees Fahrenheit and below, with a 10 to 20 knot wind, my legs were never once even the least bit chilly. Admittedly, I was wearing a pair of light weight polypropylene long underpants and a pair of expedition weight Patagonia Synchilla pants underneath the Tundras, but I was completely comfortable while those around me complained of the cold and sought shelter as the night approached.
If you're going to wear a couple of layers beneath the Tundra, you might consider the next larger waist size, but I have a 33" waist and, with my two under layers, the mediums were fine.
Construction, as with all Canada Goose products--I own both the Resolute and Snow Mantra parkas--is extraordinary. Just be sure you buy from a reputable seller. There's a lot of cheap Chinese knock-off crap out there... and it could be deadly in the wilds of Alaska.
If you're going where it's seriously cold, these are serious cold weather pants. Even at full price, it's money well spent.
The only negative? I wish I'd bought several pairs at the $89.95 price point.
