Training for the big one just got easier.
Mountaineers climb The Pfeifferhorn in Utah's Wasatch Mountains during the dead of winter to train for Mount Everest, because the conditions resemble Everest in the spring. The Canada Goose Summit Jacket is ideal in such a place. It is the lightest jacket in Canada Goose's Altitude Line, but incorporates many features you'd want in a classic down parka. The Summit is stuffed with premium 750-fill power Hutterite white duck down, which provides superb warmth and loft, and the ISO Peak 2- layer ripstop nylon with Durance laminate keeps harsh weather out. Canada Goose has rated the Summit for cold temperatures, ranging from 5 through -13°F There are overlays on the sleeves and hood to protect from moisture, while the hanging lining is for wind-proofing. No matter what challenges you face during variable weather, you'll be covered (literally) by the extended back cut of this jacket.
When you are marching through technical terrain, you don't want to fuss over adjusting your jacket, so the Summit has a removable two-way adjustable hood with single hand adjustment and a single hand adjustable and elasticized hem draw for ease of use while in action; there are also adjustable cuffs for ease of movement. You can then easily grab all the essentials you've stashed in the generous amount of pockets, like the inner security pocket with wire port and zip closure, the lower drop-in mesh pocket, or the two handwarmer pockets with reverse coil zipper closures. There's recessed Lycra stretch cuffs with thumbholes for extra warmth. And to top it all off, Canada Goose slapped on some reflective tape for added visibility. Training for Everest all of the sudden got a lot easier.

- Q & A
Makes you feel like the perfect s'more
I am not a crazy adventurer. I don't spend my weekends climbing Everest or digging gold in Alaska but this jacket serves me well all winter. It's perfect for chilly days in Wisconsin and sheds snow easily. I used it at a football game up here in December, warm the whole time. I tried it in -40F Devils Thumb last winter and it was toasty on a two mile walk at night. It's not meant to be for athletic adventures though (snowboarding in my case). Not enough mobility and would probably get too hot. The hood is detachable and serves as a great pillow on train rides.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
The quality and appearance of this jacket is top notch. It is very warm and fits great. This is my first Canada Goose jacket and is worth the premium price that I paid.
