Description

Celebrity caliber warmth and style.

Standing on a movie set waiting for your turn in front of the camera can be hard. Filming a movie in arctic winter conditions can be downright cruel. So, when Rebecca Romijn found out she would be shooting in the snow wearing only body paint, she asked Canada Goose to create a coat that would keep her warm head-to-toe. The Mystique Down Parka held the heat in for miss Romijn, and it will do the same for you.
  • The 625-fill white duck down gives you an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio so you stay warm without carrying extra weight
  • Coyote fur lining around your hood blocks the wind and holds warmth around your face, and you can remove it for easy cleaning
  • Removable hood with Velcro-secured collar protects your head from the cold, and you can leave it behind when you want a more streamlined look
  • Calf length cut warms you all the way from head to leg
  • Recessed elasticized rib-knit cuffs seal out cold air so your arms stay warm

Can't wait for the winter season!

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

Always hated New York winters, apparently did not have the right outwear!
Fit is perfect: I am 5'6" 170lb the parka falls about 7" below knees, not to tight you can wear a thick sweater under it, but I would suggest a tee shirt or a thin wool sweater, depending on how cold it is. Bonus the cut makes you look slimmer.
Outer shell: The fabric is not soft it is more like army grade tent canvas, perfect for keeping winter outside.
Hood: Not only beautiful but extremely functional, the fur has metal wire inside so you can shape it any way you need, push it a bit forward and you don't feel the side wind. Most important it stays in place when windy, no need to hold the hood and lean forward.

Can you notify me as soon as this is in stock again?

Responded on

Hey Teresa,

Unfortunately we don't really have a solid system on the site for a notification on out of stock gear. I will give you a heads up and let you know that at this point in time there are no current shipments pending delivery for this jacket so I wouldn't expect anything to come in stock within the foreseeable future.

Sorry about that.

I am 5 ft 1, will this coat be too long on me?

Best Answer Responded on

I'm not too sure. I looked on Canada Goose's site and found that the center back length is 49". Does that help you? It would probably go a little longer than your calf, but shouldn't go all the way to the ground.

I just received my mystique parka this week and was very impressed by how warm I felt in this long coat. However, xs seems a bit tight for me if I want to add one more layer on top of my t shirt. I ordered xs because that's my regular size. I was wondering if size small will be even longer than xs? With size xs it's already almost at my ankle, so I am worried if I get a size small coat instead it will bi too long for me. Could someone advice on it?

Responded on

The S will almost certainly be longer as well as wider.

very satisfactory

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I live in a cold climate where temperatures can go below -10C, with lots of chilly wind. I wanted something that would keep me warm and stylish at the same time, and this jacket fit the conditions perfectly. I am 5'8", 137lbs, and went with a small. Fits just right.

Minnesota @ 20 below and warm!!!!

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

The Mystique is so warm and comfy! Bought this parka because we were moving to Minnesota and have not regretted the decision to purchase. Am 5'9" and wear a size 10. Bought the large so I can wear a suit jacket underneath with plenty of room to move those shoulders and arms. Have no problem with the excellent fit. In coldest weather just need addition of a thin cardigan sweater. Love being this warm for once!!! Is pricey but you get what you pay for.

It's so ridiculously warm, I am in LOVE!

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

All my family and friends know I despise the cold and even sit at work with a winter coat on in NYC. I am 5'5 1/2" , weigh 122 lbs and have an athletic body shape from triathlon and rock wall climbing. (Slim, no chest, muscular back and shoulders). I ordered the small and it was GINORMOUS. After speaking with the greatest customer service at Backcountry, I exchanged it for an x-tra small. When it arrived and I tested the fit by raising my arms up, it seems a little snug and I thought it had a design flaw. I was nearly in despair at the thought of returning it since it is just so BEAUTIFUL, sporty- elegant and WARM. Then I wore it out in the freezing cold (32 degrees with wind, snow) and walked with my hands in the pockets. The truth is, you don't go around walking with your arms in the air and I had no problem with the fit. It was PERFECT. The warmth is so unbelieveable. I only wore a thin L/S shirt and yoga pants underneath and the just body parts uncovered by the jacket (feet and ankles) got cold. This parka is simply the best winter investment I have ever made. Initially, I balked at the price, but realized afterwards that I paid for quality control in materials and function. There is simply no competitor for this parka.

I bought the Mystique Down Parka last week after Chicago decided to return to its true winter form and presented us with a high of -16F the other week. I, like the above reviewer, am always cold; also slender and relatively flat-chested but very muscular through the arms, back, and shoulders (5'4," 110 lbs, "triangular" in shape). Based on this review, I bought the XS, and found that it fit exactly as described: roomy in the hips (I have none) but tight in the upper arms when I raise my arms or move them forward. I have not yet worn it outside but am sure it will be very warm as it is VERY heavy. Unfortunately, it is also very stiff, and this, combined with the "tugging" in the arms, makes me feel like a kid in snowsuit! Does it ever get more flexible? Anyway, as a result, yesterday I ordered a Bogner Fire & Ice Annie D coat to compare to it, and will let you know which one I decide to keep.

great service but didn't like the parka

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

First I have to say that the service was excellent. I ordered in the evening online and received the parka 2 days later. Returning it was also very efficient, and I was promptly reimbursed for the parka (minus the cost of the return.. a little less than $7).
BUT: the jacket... I ordered the navy; it was so dark, it looked black. I thought maybe it had been mislabeled, although putting it next to some of my black clothes I could tell (barely) that it does have navy tones in it. I had asked for a swatch from the company, but they said that they don't do that; if you're going to make a costly investment such as this, they ought to offer that. I ordered a size medium, but found it snug, especially through the shoulders (I am a size 8). Even with only a t shirt underneath, there was not enough wiggle room to be comfortable. This jacket is also quite stiff. When I researched this parka, I came across it through 2 independent raters, and both had glowing remarks when compared with any other parka out there, but I did not find it to be as comfortable as the raters noted. I didn't find the parka to be necessarily heavy, but stiff. I didn't love this parka, especially for the price. I wanted a long, full length parka that will be comfortable for cold, windy days in Maine. I already had the 850 LLBean parka, but it wasn't long enough or warm enough for standing in sub-freezing temps for long periods. In the end, I bought the ultra long LLBean parka... this parka is long AND comfortable... will it be warm enough?...we'll see, but the LLBean 850 is so light, that I can wear it inside the LLBean ultra long (size medium) and barely know that it's there.... We're accustomed to wearing layers in Maine, and I suspect that I will be prepared with my 2 jackets (cost of the 2 together were less than 1/2 of the CG Mystique) for any type of weather.

Small ok?
Hi there!

I am willing to buy the Mystique Parka but if I follow the size chart I should take an S. Thing is, I always buy 38 or 40 (which here are displayed as S or M but when in letters I take M or sometimes L). Would the S be the right size?
Also, in the sizing chart, they only care about chest and waist. What about the arms, hips and butt?

I am 5'10 and weight 132lbs. Also, my measurments (with thin clothes on) are:
Chest: 89cm - 35in
Waist: 72cm - 28.3in
Hips (down hips and butt): 99cm - 39in
Arms (folded): 66cm - 26in

Thank you!!

Responded on

I don't think so, Vanessa. I am 5'9-1/2" tall and weigh 137 lbs. the medium was too small (see my review above).

Responded on

I am 5'11" 155 lbs and went with an XL due to my arm length. sleeves are barely long enough, i could easily use another 2 inches...Length of this coat comes just under my knees, shoulders are ok, hand warming pockets are kind of high, since this was designed for a much shorter woman, i guess..
I agree with salp795899 that you should go with no smaller than L size.

I wear a small in the Trillium, but Medium in the Kensington and Victoria. Any idea how the Mystique would fit? Thanks!

I have both: kensington and mystique. Mystique has a normal fit like trillium, i had to size up with kensington. So I guess you should go with a Small in Mystique in your case.

I've been looking at buying a Mystique Parka for a trip to Europe in December 2012. I feel the cold so want something ultra warm.

I'm 6'1" tall and weigh approx 140lbs and I don't know what size to go for. Is anyone able to tell me the actual measurements of a size medium? I'm trying to get the measurements of:
- sleeve length (from shoulder to cuff)
- shoulder width
- chest width (from under the armpit across)

Being so tall but small framed I'm struggling to figure out what size to go for and because I live in Australia I have to purchase online so cannot try it on.

Responded on

I know this is super late and you probably already have the jacket, but I will try to answer. I am 5'11" and 155 lbs and went with the xl, because of the sleeve length. To me, there's nothing worse than short sleeves on a really cold day. I could have gone with the large,was it not for the sleeves. I am usually a large in everything else. The safest thing to do is to try to find a local retailer of canada goose products and try one on for sizing, so you can make that determination. I would not go smaller than L, if i were you. CG sizes generaly run smaller than in other clothes in us and canada..if that helps.

Small should do the job. Depending on how much you intend to layer underneath, you may want to size up or down.

okay, not worth it

This coat is warm. You won't have any problem with the cold with this, but it has some serious faults for the price. First, it is VERY VERY heavy. You feel like you are wearing lead. 2nd, you can't wash it. IT MUST be dry cleaned, and it can only be dry cleaned so many times in its lifetime, otherwise you ruin the protective spray coating. ANd, down needs to be washed now and again, it can pack down, matt with sweat, and you need to refluff it. LAST, the one I had, broke micro holes in the seams of the sleeves, only after a few wears, looked like the material rubbed on the material at my side, and broke down, but after only 4-5 times? ALSO, canada goose as a manufacturer, is out dated, they don't revamp their technology or listen to product defaults, suggestions, like they live in their own world. SO beware, a lot to pay for some serious misgivings.

Warm coat, horrible hood

-I bought a Mystique coat for my girlfriend for a two weeks trip in Siberian cities in December/January. It was not available in size and color from backcountry.com so I went with another authorized retailer.
Siberian temperatures were a constant - 20 C during the day and - 25 C during the night, rarely windy, dry. We would spend the most of the day walking around.
We wore underneat a thick fleece and very warm boots.
I had myself an Canada Goose Expedition Parka bought for the same occasion, so I will spend a few words about that as well.

The GOOD:
The Mystique coat is very warm overall, the warmest coat she ever had. It does the job. I would not go to Yakutzk at -40C with it, but for -20C / -25C is ok.
It is also rather stilish, despite the necessary bulk. Black makes it look thinner, and the cut follows the woman shape. The fit is average, not too thin, not too thick.
Very nice hand fleece cuffs inside the sleeves, which save your hands if you have no gloves with you.
Outer fabric is not one of the fancy hi-tech ones but functional and very tough, like the ones of other Canada Goose coats. We had no chance to try the waterproofness, but you would not buy or wear this coat for when it rains.

The VERY BAD:
THE HOOD IS HORRIBLE. Differently from 99% of fur-lined hood, the fur trim does not go all the way down to the base of the neck, it's just some sort of a top-crown. This leaves the sides of the face and the chick-bones completely exposed, together with a cut in the fabric apparently designed to allow to lower the removable hood (why would you want to remove the hood in a coat like this??). See picture, any breeze would blow straight to the exposed skin causing her frost-nips on the chick bones! At some poiunt she had to wear a balaclava underneat, but it was too late for her skin. Of course we tried to adjust the wire that runs along the fur trim, but there is no way to seal the sides of the face, and no strings to pull. BAD HOOD!
After the trip it was too late to return the coat to the store as it showed signs of wear. I brought the issue to the attention of Canada Goose. They returned my several calls and emails weeks later, and eventually did not aknwoledge the problem, despite seeing this picture. I spoke with several people there. I offered to pay for a fix or alteration, or asked them to sell me some of their black fabric to alter the hood myself, and they would not do it. They even said that any alteration would have void the warranty. They only offered to inspect it (shipping on me, I am in the US, they are in Canada) for possible warranty claims, but they confirmed the hood is the way it is and no alterations would me made. Bad attitude to not even aknwoledge your own design faults Canada Goose, sorry! If you want to leverage the "Made in North America" thing versus the "made in China", you should be more flexible and understanding in cases like this.

OTHER NEGATIVES:
The Mystique coat, like most other Canada Goose coats (I bought an Expedition for the same trip, and returned it, see below), has a baffled "sawn-through" construction: you take a flat piece of fabric, put down on it, then a second flat piece of fabric, and saw them together with a pattern to creat pockets to secure the down in place. Then Canda Goose adds a third loose layer of flat fabric: a tough one outside in the Expedition, and a liner inside in the Mystique. This makes so that there is no down-thickness along the stitches, zero, so you will feel lines of cold along them in very cold conditions which is, huh, what these coats are marketed for, isn'it? This is acceptable for thinner down jackets, but it is not what any other manufacturer of mid-weight to thick-weight mountaneering parka do (MH, FF, Marmot, Montbell): these other parkas have a 3D-baffled construction, with internal vertical "walls" of fabric to separate the pockets, to guarantee full thickness of down everywhere. Neither the Mystique coat nor the Expedition feature 3D baffles, reason why I returned my Expedition because of cold arms and cold lines around the stiches (mind I was wearing Polartec 300 underneat). Again Canada Goose did not aknwoledge the problem for that either, they only offered to take it in for warranty inspection, when it is clear that it is not a warranty problem but a design feature that it is not fixable. Thanks God the store took my Expedition back as it was very aware of the problem, as they received other similar complaints.

Other negatives:
- the pockets have only a thin layer of fleece to warm your hands, no down. Same for the Expedition.
- both these coats are very bulky and heavy, more than they should, and do not pack well. If you travel from a not-so-cold city to a cold one, you drag a monster of down and fabric with you, that will occupy the seat next to you or the entire airline luggage compartment, when it is not mopping the floor, it's huge.

Other thoughts:
- Canada Goose does not use "goose down", but duck down. So it should be called "Canada Duck". They do say it clearly though. And for all their coats but the Snow Mantra, they use 625 or 650 fill, sort of mid-quality. For these prices, they could use higher fill down (750 or 800, but hey, there is no 800 duck down available, only goose) and make their coats warmer and/or ligther, which would not hurt.

Bottom line:
I and my gf are not aware nor we tried any other coat specifically cut for women overall as warm as this one (I suspect there may be some out there).
Would she buy it again? Not with other options, she absolutely hates the hood, and we are planning to have it altered by a local taylor, voiding the warranty.
The coat could be warmer with extra down in the upper torso and 3D baffled construction. When you buy a super heavy and bulky $650 coat, I believe you can have a extra couple of onces of down.

Myself, I returned the Expedition and bought without a second thought a Mountain Hardwear Absolute Zero, 3D baffled construction, 800 fill parka, way warmer and lighter than the Expedition and packs small, although more delicate when you wear it.

Hope it helps.

Warm coat, horrible hood
Responded on

Thanks for your very thorough reviews. I was wondering if the Canada Goose coats were worth the extra price but apparently they are not. I totally agree that the only way to go for truly cold temps is baffled down, not sewn-through construction. And I did not know they don't even use goose down, let alone 700-800 fill which is what I would expect for this price point.

Responded on

I second that! A very helpful review and the description and picture of the hood, is enough evidence for me to look for an alternative.
