CANADA GOOSE MEN’S EXPEDITION PARKA
To top off the layers keeping old man winter from ruining your day, the Canada Goose Expedition Parka ($710) is built to stand out and not empty out your wallet.
This mid-thigh-length parka, insulated and rated to be good down to -30 degrees Fahrenheit, you’ll be able to sports a two-way adjustable tunnel hood with a non-removable coyote fur ruff surrounding it. Coyote fur is used because it never freezes, doesn’t hold water, and the uneven hair lengths create a windbreak that protects exposed skin, reduces heat loss from the face.
It is kept closed by a heavy-duty 2-way locking zipper and the fit can be customized with the adjustable waist draw cord.
You won’t lack for pocket room, as it has two lower ‘full-bellow’ snow pockets secured by Velcro, four fleece-lined ‘hand-warmer’ pockets hidden behind the chest, two interior pockets (one a security pocket with zipper closure and a ‘drop-in’ pocket, one utility pocket on the left sleeve and one flap pocket on the right.
