This week we will be starting a new segment, in which we will be comparing two brands to each other by taking into consideration their fabric quality, product designs, and performance, the focus, of course, being jackets.
Afterward, in the 1970s, Metro created down-filled jackets, which were sold to the Canadian Rangers, police departments, and other establishments where they were required to go outdoors in the ruthless weather of Canadian winter.
Now, in regard to when and where to wear most Canada Goose jackets, the answer is very simple. They are made for freezing temperatures and very harsh weather and because they provide incredible insulation due to the goose or duck down fill, they are extremely warm, yet light and comfortable to wear, as well as breathable.
So how expensive are we talking about? Well, when you look at one of their cheapest jackets, the Faber Bomber, and it is priced at around $400, you can easily guess how high the price goes for the rest of them, especially parkas.
What we will look at in particular is their Ramar Cloth, a blend of 60% Cotton and 40% Nylon, which is used in their pricier parkas and jackets. This fabric is specially designed and it is able to withstand rain and stains, apart from being incredibly durable.
Just like the Canada Goose jackets and parkas we chose, these too come with Coyote fur trim on the hoods. Being down-insulated and with numerous features that make them practical, these jackets are suitable for very harsh weather and also quite resistant to water, but not completely waterproof so watch out for that.
Because Woolrich is a versatile brand in its designs, this also affects its price range, making it a mixed brand. What we mean by that is that you will find both affordable jackets, which are under $200, as well as designs that go upwards of $500. 781b155fdc
