This is absolutely fantastic and will serve as a handy hub/compilation for launching into the specific individual reviews that are peppered throughout the various topics already established for each particular brand.

I have edited my linked Canada Goose Manitoba review to include more photos, more discussion, and scrutiny on the negatives of the jacket, which I did not do originally. I highly suggest for those who are already linked in the original post above to revisit their reviews and ensure that they are as unbiased and objective as possible; that is, to discuss as many pros and cons as you intelligently can, and to justify them. Simply gushing about a product or bashing it is only half useful. Obviously for those posting new reviews, this advice also applies.

Thank you to everyone who posted a review, or will post a review in the future, and especially to BananaWeed and mapleleaf27 for taking the initiative to start and compile everything together on this! It's ambitious and BananaWeed obviously went through the established threads searching just for the diamonds in the rough, the user-submitted reviews.

Nice thread, Anyways I went to PMALL today. There was a store called "Pacific Down" I saw OSC jackets there.. The fur looked kind of off - Is that store legit?

I saw a sign regarding 40-50% off but the rest were In another language other then English.. I was tempted to ask what was discounted but I wasn't sure If the jackets were authentic or not..

This Is kind of the wrong thread too but oh well..

Helpful for potential buyers. My osc review is for the Siku style not the Karima :)

I'm pretty sure Pacific Down at Pmall is an official dealer. That's where people were getting the OSC jackets at 50% off two seasons ago. If they're having a 50% off sale again, I'd say that's pretty hot. I think OSC jackets fit bigger though. AFAIK, no one posted fit pics when they got theirs. Hopefully someone does this year. :)

I remember reading about the 50% off OSC when I was doing some research on that brand at this forum. Wow, please someone go down there and check it out. The Atka and Kanti both look like awesome parkas. They most likely fit similar to the regular fit CG coats like my Ontario.

Yeah someone go check, I'm too lazy and don't want to be disappointed going there to find out It's on their non good jackets they were also selling..

The fur on the OSC jacket's there didn't really too amusing..

Well, their website lists it as Canadian coyote fur. How would you describe it? What was unappealing about it?

Would you like a photo comparison of the CG Kensington fur vs OSC Siku fur? Can maybe take photos of fit of OSC but looks like people are more interested in fit of men's OSC. My Fiance has the Atka and CG Chilliwack though not sure if he'd want to model (the Atka).
