Just an FYI on older CG tags.

This one goes back decades. CG was originally metro sportswear.

Then later on it became snow goose. Mostly marketed in europe. In can/us still marketed as metro sportswear.

Then the more familar version of snow goose.

Finally, current version.

Authentic.
I guess my only question is when i search up the serial number I find this jacket on the CG website

https://www.canadagoose.com/ca/en/sydne ... ightweight

The interior on mine is black, the cuffs and bottom trim are also black instead of all blue. Could the one I got be an older version?

I couldn't quote aznnorth if he could respond to this as well it would be much appreciated thanks guys!

Perhaps there's different color variation of the jacket that's not listed on the site or an exclusive retailer color. Can you take a picture of the zipper and wind guard embroidery along the zippers? I highly doubt the level of details of this jacket that it's a fake. If you're really that suspicious about the jacket, I would advise you to email CG for their opinion as well. It will give you definite peace of mind knowing that the answer came from the makers themselves.

I've attached a few different pictures. How would I go about emailing CG? I tried calling but I felt like I knew more about real vs fake goose jackets after 30 minutes of research than the customer service rep haha.

Thanks again!

Email ce@canadagoose.com

Verification is handled by their warranty department. My thoughts - it's real.

Yes that is the correct model. Why dont u just ask the gift giver where s/he bought it? That shud give enuff info as to whether the retailer is legit or not. In fact you can go to the retailer and check the same model out yourself.

CG has been changing color names like musical chairs. Methinks they come up with these weird colors names to appease the new gen crowd like mid gray is now called limestone.. or another color is called graphite, etc. As long as everything is real, tags are real, legit retailer, etc. then it's REAL. lol.

Canada Goose have so many different shades of blue. There is navy blue, pacific blue, spirit blue, ink blue, royal blue, blue topaz and etc. Do you have pictures of the jacket in question?

Yeah I've posted all my pics before of my gilet-it is genuine but just wondered on why they did that with the colour. It's the same tag as this guys pic on the thread Navy Marine.

Your jacket is navy blue which is a darker blue. Spirit is another shade of blue, more like a medium dull blue. They are not the same color. Sometimes the photos lighting are not showing the right shades of blue. You have to put them side by side to see the drastic differences.

Yeah I'm guessing it's just the European way of saying it. Navy we use a lot and Marine French.
