Canadians may be used to freezing cold winters, but sometimes it takes a -20° day to remind you of the importance of a good winter coat. For days like these, we’ve rounded up 5 of our favourite warm winter coats. These pieces are sure to keep your core toasty warm without overheating (for when you have no choice but to leave the comfort of your home).
Canada Goose Langford Parka
The Langford is slightly longer than some of its similar Canada Goose counterparts; this allows for greater warmth with more leg protection. With a storm flap over the centre front zipper and two interior pockets, the Langford offers clean lines and a modern look – all in an uncompromisingly protective parka. This parka is water repellent and is rated TEI 4 (-15 to -25 degrees).
Fjallraven Singi Down Jacket
The Women’s Singi Down Jacket from Fjallraven is a warm and durable down jacket with a traditional, long cut. This jacket features a technical tunnel hood with faux fur and a drawcord adjustment at the waist and hem. Paired with a feminine cut and slim fit, there’s no need to sacrifice your silhouette for absolute warmth!
Arc’teryx Therme Coat
The Arc’teryx Therme Coat uses a combination of synthetic and down insulation in partnership with a waterproof/windproof GORE-TEX® outer. The result is a stylish waterproof/windproof outer parka shell perfect for cold winter days. Fully taped seams allow for extreme waterproof protection, while an insulated hood and chin guard will keep your face safe from the cold.
Canada Goose Mystique Parka
What could be warmer than a full-length down parka? Popular on chilly film sets and city streets alike, the Canada Goose Mystique Parka offers maximum protection in harsh environments. This TEI 5 rated (-30 degrees and below) coat offers even heat distribution without adding excessive bulk, while interior backpack straps allow you to carry your parka around once you’ve made it safely indoors.
