      ngl they actually are pretty comfy to wear. I recently bought a Stone Island puffy jacket and the whole thing weighs like 400 grams and kept me warm while it was -7. I was surprised how light it feels

        what you mean? the good fakes hold extremely warm. i wouldnt buy one because i dont care for expensive brands much, but seriously you have to be stupid to buy original canada goose which has shitty quality anyways.

        warmness isn’t how you judge a down jacket. you can stuff a ton of low grade fill into a jacket and have it be warm, it’ll also be huge and puffy.
        high grade down jackets are judged on warmth to weight ratio. picrel is an actual modern high grade expedition level down jacket. its half the weight of a canada goose jacket and warmer because it uses higher grade shell materials and much much higher grade down. its also priced the same as a canada goose and handmade in seattle with much more ethically sourced down.

        The ironic thing is most "real" Canada Goose isn’t even legit.
        It’s basically just a cheaper mass produced model with cheaper materials because they can’t source enough quality materials to satisfy demand.

        its cost cutting, no other brand has trouble finding 900FP down or 1150FP treated down. which is the grade that should be in jackets this price.

        I’m not that guy but I’ve had a fake Canada goose expedition for almost 4 years and it’s the warmest coat I’ve ever had. I was sweating a bit while the windchill was -35F

    I don’t understand fashion puffers like canada goose. They’re like outdoors hiking puffers, but frozen in time with 1990’s or older era styles and materials. You’ll never see a backpacker wearing canada goose these days. The down quality canada goose uses is the same as you’d find in an Aliexpress or Uniqlo jacket. The shells are made from really thick (by modern standards) cheap low grade nylon. Etc.
    I’d get it if it was for fashion reasons, but these are ugly jackets. Good looking historical down jackets existed. Plenty of them. Eddie Bauer Skyliner. Karakoram parkas. Etc.
    Canada Goose is like Chinese/Korean Foreign Exchange Student-core in the pacific northwest. If you’re white you should be embarrassed by that immigrant wear.
    Picrel the most common down jacket you’ll see the average outdoors person wearing these days.

      it’s just a flex for nouveau riche/upper middle class with no taste. i live in NH and you see a lot of this kind of trash in Bedford at places like Whole Foods

        currently its $149
        im 36" in the chest and 33" in the arms and wore size M, it was a tad large in terms of torso length and sleeve length but otherwise fit fine when wearing a base layer and sweater
        however the hood is quite large especially when combined with the fur lining and its like looking through a tunnel, but luckily the fur lining can be taken off since it has a zipper and it alleviates the issue somewhat

    Canada Goose is for insufferable fratboy undergrads and Korean exchange students. Rocky Mountain Featherbed has a timeless design with the highest quality down on the market. Also, Japan made so you know the QC on that shit is top shelf

        down jackets really shouldnt ever be exposed to the rain.
        you’re meant to wear a rain jacket over top with them when its wet.

          why do chantards always say this?
          first of all: nobody cares
          second: it just sounds dumb, as if you think you’re some official source of information

            You sound like the kind of stupid moron to tell me my house is burning because you haven’t been linked a mainstream peer reviewed source saying my house is on fire. Do you dumb ass zoomers not have boy scouts or dads to go camping with anymore?

            Militaries developed and hikers (and people who spend time outside) have adopted what are called layering systems to best endure various types of weather.

            >Base layer (underwear layer): wicks sweat off your skin
            >Middle layer (insulating layer): retains body heat to protect you from the cold
            >Outer layer (shell layer): shields you from wind and rain

            >https://mylifeoutdoors.com/2022/02/the-truth-about-wet-down-jackets.html
            Down is an insulator that loses all its performance and becomes a clumpy mess when it gets wet. Have you ever washed a pillow before? Same thing. Down insulates through its loft, and it loses all its loft when it gets wet.
            Some down jackets can be mildly water resistant by use of treated down and DWR repellants, but they’re not a replacement for a rain jacket. Rather this is meant to just make the down jacket resist moisture that might come through your rain jacket.
            It should be obvious why you wouldn’t see a down jacket with a waterproof hood at this point, unless it were some kind of fashion statement.
            If you want a waterproof hood put a hat or a shell jacket on over your down jacket dingus. If you want a jacket that’s a jack of all trades buy a softshell or a parka or something.

            Getting your down wet also ruins the down.

            >Don’t get your jacket wet if you can help it – You can always successfully dry down, however, repeatedly wetting and drying your jacket will reduce its thermal performance over time.

      nah there’s a whole tier higher than the fill they use, but its probably intentional so they can achieve that puffy look without being way too warm.
      the shells/outers on those look INSANELY nice.
      i’d have to have one in person but going off what i see i’d have to agree with you they look like some of the nicest general purpose / fashionable down jackets out there.
      best down jackets for other use cases:
      >technical mountaineering
      Timmermade
      Feathered Friends
      Nunatak
      >technical mountaineering poorfag/value
      Cumulus Plancklite best sub $200
      Decathlon Trek 100 best sub $100
      >hunting/camo
      Kuiu / Sitka / etc
      >citygay & Blackwear
      Moncler, TNF Purple Label

    i have a kingofgoose jacket which i paid $250 for and is indistinguishable from the real thing in person. It lasted me 4 winters of heavy wear before it started leaking feathers everywhere. I honestly don’t know if you can get a better coat for $250
