[Official] Nobis thread
Why is the poly wool version $100 more? Is there a quality difference?
Indeed there is. It achieves higher thermal resistance, improved water management capabilities, less water absorption and improved evaporation. Wool is more expensive than cotton, hence the slightly higher price tag. It also prevents any pilling that you see on the crosshatch version.
How do I wash my Nobis jacket?
They are machine washable, dry cleaning is not mandatory. However, DO NOT ADD fabric softener when washing. This removes the Durable Water Repellent coating (DWR) making it unable to repel water. Nobis recommends washing the jacket inside out on gentle cool/warm setting, and dryer on medium setting.
How do I revive my water repellency?
If for some reason your water repellency has been removed from due to fabric softener or whatever reason, Nobis recommends spraying your product with NikWax Softshell Proof.
Why is it so much harder to get a hold of a Nobis jacket than Canada Goose?
It's because Nobis does not mass produce, they make a specific amount per season.
If I want my jacket to be sent for warranty, where does it go?
It goes to the Nobis Head Office after being approved by the store you purchased from. (PO Box 3648 STN Industrial Park L3R 6G9 Markham, ON) Nobis requires you to provide them your receipt for your warranty to be valid so please keep this important document.
Why can't I find a Nobis jacket in moss green anymore?
This colour was discontinued as of 2011.
How come my Nobis jacket says it's in made in Canada but my friend says their jacket is made in China?
Nobis products were originally made in Canada, they started having their products made in China around F/W 2010/2011. It is still a great product nonetheless.
Where does the manufacturing process take place for Nobis jackets?
"Our jackets are made alongside other brands such as Burberry, Carhartt, and Zegna at a manufacturing plant in China. We had to go through a bunch of interviews to make sure we could go into the plant and and we interviewed them to make sure that they could provide us with consistent quality. So we brought all our own down-filling, machines etc. to the factory. We brought it all over there. People assume that ‘Made in China’ means cheap but really the reason that we are manufacturing overseas is that those factories are state of the art and the highest quality in the world, and really quite frankly we would not be able to see the same results here in Canada".
