I would recommend you guys to stay away from the Langford parka for men. My coat has loose threads coming out of the shoulder and the sleeve area after 1 season of moderate use. Many others owners have reported similar issues in the reviews section of the CG website.

Certain models are either poorly designed or just put together with cheaper materials.

I was debating getting one of these earlier this year just to look more foreign, kidding. :P
But I did not like the often difficult zippers and the sleeves were too long for the models I tried on.
It seems quite hard for me to find a CG parka that is perfect fit...

I know it's a different style, but you can get an Arcteryx Fission SV for like half this price when on sale. It's a warm, but MUCH lighter, more comfortable jacket and allows full body range of motion. I went for a 1.5 hour walk in the evening today in it (-12 with wind) and was perfecty warm and comfortable in a t-shirt. I'd take that over the <5% of days where bulky coats matter more.

It’s about brand cachet now and the more expensive, the more exclusive it appears to brand slaves (the LV bags playbook). CG probably don’t really care that Canadians find them outrageously expensive. Similar to lobsters and maple sirup, the producers make more money in foreign markets.
Canadians buy lots of CG too. Obviously many don't find it that expensive with how common they are in Canada

It's really not that expensive.. you can get a bomber for less than 1k... It's pretty cheap compared to moncler and warmer too

There is no way I'll pay that much for CG.

Edit:
The Resolute Parka $1395


You are going to tell me a bomber jacket that probably is only duck filled is worth the same.
the guy looks like he's an EMT. lmao, i'll never understand the fascination with CG.

That's a design choice due to the purpose the jacket was intended for?
Long known as the "industrial" parka of the North, the Resolute Parka is worn at both poles - by explorers on trans-Antarctic expeditions as well as workers at high-Arctic observatories. With features like double reinforced elbows and a longer thigh length, this parka will get you through some of the most extreme and challenging environments in the world.

Agreed, exact same experience for me and my CG

I've never seen anybody wear Ant/Arctic heavy duty jackets like the Resolute or Snow Mantra or Expedition to do things like "drop off the kids" or "hang out in malls". I've seen people wear the Expedition or its less warm and bulky cousin, the Citadel while being on the job that would require them be in the cold all day long, but 99% of people who wear CG for the things you describe are wearing jackets meant for casual winter use, like any other winter jacket from any other brand. CG employs a "Thermal Experience Index (TEI)" classification for temperature ratings, and most people wear TEI 3 or 4 for winter. They also make jackets that would be suited for Autumn weather. TEI 1 is 5C to -5C while TEI 5 is -30 and lower.

Just because they make TEI 5 jackets for extreme conditions doesn't mean that's all they make, and it's common for people on RFD to say it's "humourous" or "funny" or "overkill" for people to be wearing CG in an urban setting not realizing they're wearing jackets precisely intended for such use in such conditions. It's also common to think all people live in a city like Toronto when there are people living in much colder and harsher cities and areas in Canada that would require a warmer jacket in winter.

I can recall atleast over a dozen times I seen Snow Mantras that are literally in pristine condition being worn at the mall. The only thing that makes me notice is usually it's 1-2 sizes to big for the individually so their entire arm is within the sleeves. Resolutes I found are pretty rare, maybe seen 2 or 3 over the years.

If you're talking about malls in Toronto, then you should buy a lottery ticket. Snow Mantras are so rare, not just because of how cumbersome (and ugly) they are, but also because they're the warmest jacket CG makes, and prior to all the new items and price hikes making the likes of even the Chilliwack a $1200 jacket, this was their most expensive jacket, and aside from the Resolute, Expedition, and special items such as Loro Piana wool, by a large margin. You've seen "over a dozen", all "at the mall", all in "pristine condition", all "1-2 sizes too big", and presumably nobody passing out from overheating.

Either CG ran a "Snow Mantra" marketing campaign, you're seeing the same person each time, there was a "Snow Mantra" meet-up at the mall only for new owners wearing sizes too big for them (or very short arms), or you're experiencing some unusual luck.

I've seen the Expedition indoors a couple of times, and there's a high chance they're RFDers who got it (relatively) cheap from Costco and didn't want to buy a less warm CG for indoor use. Half joking here.

I love my Canada Goose coat. What I didnt like ordering from NRML last time was that it took forever and they were so slow to respond.

Anyone know of a parka that goes down to the knees or longer (on a 5'5" woman) that can handle -30 temps? CG has one, but if there's a cheaper brand that does the same thing, I'd love to know of its name.

Try Outdoor Survival Canada jackets. I had one, Atka model, and it was way too warm, I couldn't wear it above -10. Sold it to a guy going to work in NWT. I'm sure he loves it.
For women it's the same case, I'd assume. They do - or at least did - pack them up with down, unlike most CGs.

Snow pants would be the best option if you're not willing to spend money on the coat. Wife loves her CG kensington.

But pricing today is nuts.

Woah, I've never heard of this brand. Thank you so much!
