Canada Goose: Ask Anyone Who Knows.

The Canada Goose Men's Expedition Parka is the original, undefeated champion of extreme cold-weather utility jackets, and its quality and warmth are simply without question. After over 20 years of use by the National Science Foundation at Antarctica's McMurdo Station research facility, the Expedition Parka has proven its worth in the harshest, coldest environments on the planet. With its Teflon-coated Arctic-Tech fabric protecting the super-high lofting, 625 fill-power duck-down insulation within, this parka is designed to let you operate in total comfort, well into sub-zero Fahrenheit conditions. Four front cargo pockets and two sets of fleece-lined handwarmer pockets provide space for every glove, hat, and instrument, with room to spare. These, plus a down-filled hood, freeze-proof genuine coyote-fur ruff and interior snow skirt are just some of the features setting the Expedition Parka far, far apart from its many imitators.

Warm Coat for the Bitter Cold

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This coat is excellent for extreme cold and very low wind chills. I've had the coat for a month and live in Upstate New York. The temperatures have been at zero and below, with the added bonus of 20 below wind chills. The coat works very well and is sized for layering (i.e. underwear, shirt, sweater, fleece, then the coat). The hood is excellent and the Velcro closures work well.

Great jacket for living in the polar vor

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

Where to start. First a big thumbs up to backcountry. I was wary on the size I should get. I was hoping to use it for an upcoming trip. I was purchasing on a Wednesday and leaving on Saturday for my trip. The person I worked with hooked me up with free return shipping should I have an issue. On Thursday it arrived, 1 size too large. I spoke with another rep who gave me express shipping on the next size down. Mind you I called Thursday night EST. He had the replacement at my house Friday morning ( I have no idea how they pulled that off] The backcountry staff are great. Now for the jacket.
First off its a warm jacket. I asked a friend who did research work in Antarctica her opinion. She said go small on the sizing as you wont need any additional layers. She was right I basically wore a t-shirt under it. Avg temp where I was hovered around 10 degrees F. On the sizing, you're going to want to trend towards the smaller size. According to Canada Goose I'm an XXL. I ended up getting the XL, but I could easily go to an L. Not sure why their sizing isn't "true". Anyway it's kept me very warm, has lots of pockets and seems very durable. I'd highly recommend it.

Dynamite Parka

This jacket has everything. I am BIG. 330 Pounds plus. Had to send back several competitive products. This was the most expensive by far but worth every penny. So impressed I bought a comparable Women's model for my wife who is also delighted with the purchase.

I need to get two Expedition jackets (one Men's S, one Women's XXS) in Sunset Orange. Is it possible for you to special-order them for me? There isn't a broad range of colors available here...

Hello,
I hope to buy a Canada Goose Jacket.
I normally use XLarge, however, the info on the waist indicates 94-97 cm. I do not think this is extra large.
Which size should I choose? have never used any other than XR. Is possible that Canada Goose Jackets are bigger or slim such as Langford for example?
Thanks!

Sizing.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

This jacket is huge. I've always been an extra-large. I have a 45 to 46 chest. 34 inch sleeve. 37 inch waist. I am 5'10". The sleeve length is good but the body has way too much room. I purchased an extra-large and I'm exchanging it for a large. Will update when I received the large.

Why does Canada Goose fill their jackets with duck down? I'd expect goose down at this price point.

Chris,
The Canada Goose Expedition Down Parka is intended to keep you safe in painfully cold temps (Field tested for coldest places on Earth). Tha coat does not have an official temp rating like a sleeping bag might, however it has been tested at Arctic temps well below -30C. This is one of Canada Goose's warmest parkas, according to their TEI rating system it tops out at a TEI5.

You can read more about the TEI rating system on their website here:

hey, I am 6'1", and am about 178-80lbs soaking wet. I always need to find medium or large TALL shirts for my wide shoulders and knuckle dragging long arms....okay an exaggeration, but I have had to resort to bespoke shirts being small and long, instead of 'big and tall'. My arms need shirts in the 35-6 in range to fit me. And I am a 40 chest size. Any parkas for a guy more horizontally challenged than vertically so?

Best Answer Responded on

canada goose recommends sizing one size down for their relaxed fit jackets. i couldn't find the sleeve length for you, but the jackets is designed to hit mid thigh, so the waist length shouldn't be a problem for you. the center back length is 35 inches, so you can compare that against your own measurement.

also live in Texas, so we only have short periods of cold weather. But I like quality, that's why I'm looking at Canada Goose. I attend a lot of football games outside November - December. Temps I usually deal with are 25 - 40 degrees with wind/rain. What is the best coat for me?

Best Answer Responded on

Honestly I would look for a lighter jacket. Yes Canada Goose is the premier brand of down coats but most of their coats are meant for single digit to sub zero temperature. In Texas that would be overkill. Save your money and find a 3 in 1 from a good company and you can't go wrong.

Chest puts you in the XXXL, waist in the XL (but bordering on the the XXL). Depends how you want it to fit, but I'd think you might want the double since you're probably not going to layer up underneath if you live in Texas.

Responded on

You are a tough fit Cyrus and don't let anyone tell you differently. You are borderline between those two size but you are going to need the XXL for chest size and especially arm length.

Hi i'm 5"10 with a 44" chest, an was wondering what size i should get, bearing in mind i'm not likely to layer underneath?

Responded on

I would say XL is going to fit you better than a L because with 44 being right above the range of Larger it's most likely you'll be really tight if you chose that size. XL will be a better fit for you.
