Victoria T.wrote a review of Canada Goose Citadel Down Parka - Men's on August 4, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
i purchased this jacket from backcountry in january after doing extensive research on it. not too many reviews on the citadel ....... was very expensive and i was a little disappointed when i noticed down feathers coming out of the seams. you would think a 800 dollar jacket wouldn't do that so i contacted canada goose my self and they told me it was normal and is what they call the break in period where all the loose down makes its way out of the coat. i can guarantee that the old canada gooses probably didn't do that but in our day and age its very rare no matter how much money your spending to get a real top quality product. i accepted that feathers would come out here and there and moved on with my life. as for the jacket its the warmest most insulated jacket I've ever put on. a day after i received it to my luck we had a big snow storm with about 30 mph winds with real feels reaching almost -20 below zero temperatures so i thought die test it out. i could not have been more comfortable and warm i went on a 2 hour hike through my town with wearing just sweat pants snow boots hat gloves and of course the jacket. i was very impressed. the hood on this jacket has a bendable metal chord in the fur part of the hood with lets you adjust it very specifically however youde like the fur besides for style is very useful it brakes the wind from hitting your face and cathces the snow it also keeps you very warm. as for the pockets ... they are perfect and even have fleece lining to stick your hands in for extra warmth. besides for performing well in antarctic conditions its also a great everyday jacket as well. my only concern is how long it will last. ide hope at least 10 or 12 years at this price but who knows. I'm 6ft1 about 180 pounds and i got a large it fits me perfectly. my only complaint is the feathers seeping out how hard is it to sow or seal the inside seams so that not even one feather comes out?? probably a few extra bucks on there end.....
