Waterproofing a Canada Goose Expedition

Sorry if this has been asked before.

How would you go about re-applying DWR on an expedition

( fur is non removable )

Thank you !

There is no such thing as a waterproof Canada Goose parka. People are confused with the term water resistance. Canada Goose doesn't require any chemical application to resist water. Their outer shell material protects you from water within an hour to three until it starts to absorbed into the fabric. The only thing that is waterproof from their collections are their raincoats or shell jackets.

The reason they don't make waterproof parka is the problem of breathability. When your warm body releases moisture it needs to be let out or bacteria will be breeding inside.

^^^ Right
Don't wear your CG/Mackage/Moose/OSC/Nobis or any other WINTER down jacket in the RAIN
Buy a RAIN coat.... very simple and that why if you choose to wear them in the rain, your jacket will smell like a wet dog for the foreseeable future

I’m not trying to turn it into a rain coat xD just want to refresh the Durable Water Repellency treatment, this coat is from 2012 so the initial treatment wore off.

As stated above, it is their textile design called Arctic Tech that makes it water resistant. It is NOT something that they apply on it.
