trishkapwrote a review of Canada Goose Camrose Down Jacket - Women's on November 20, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Let me explain a couple of things. 1- I have a thing for jackets. 2 closet full of jackets. 2- just moved to Buffalo, NY. So- now I know cold and jackets. I decided to buy this jacket because the website rated it a 4 out of 5 on the warm scale and no fur hood. I used it during the current snowstorm. 1st day: tshirt, north face sweater and jacket. I had sweat rolling down my back! 2nd day: long sleeve T, down vest, and jacket. Had to unzip. Honestly, I walked around in a long sleeve T and the jacket. Plenty warm. Seriously considering just undergarments and the coat.
I did size up. I got a large but I really wear a medium. I could have stuck with the medium. I'm 5ft3 and 147lb. Plenty of room in the large but it doesn't look huge. I love the backpack straps so when I take the jacket off, I can wear it. If you can afford it, buy it! You'll be extremely warm in this coat.
