Canada Goose Jackets are designed with one thing in mind, keeping the wearer warm, often in extremely cold weather conditions. Therefore the materials used to produce the jackets are of upmost importance. Not only do the jackets keep one warm, they must also be as waterproof as possible, durable and lightweight for comfort and ease of carrying.
As the name suggests, the main component of a Goose Jacket is the Goose down that the jacket is lined with. Goose down is the warmest insulator available and gives around three times the warmth offered through the use of other synthetic materials. Goose down is also light which makes the jacket comfortable to wear. For every ounce of down used there are around two million fluffy filaments and these filaments join together to create pockets of air, which is how the jacket enables the wearer to stay so warm. Canada Goose also make a promise that only goose down from poultry by-products are used which means there is no inhumane plucking involved and the goose down used utilizes the by-products left over once the goose has been prepared for human consumption.check their website today!
The second important material used in the Goose Jacket is Coyote fur. The fur is commonly used on most jackets as a ruff around the hood, offering outstanding warmth and protection to the head and face during cold weather. Real fur protects the skin from frostbite and offers the best protection in extremely cold weather conditions. The fur acts as a disruption to cold airflow and creates a turbulent, which is warm air.
This then gives off a heat to the head and face which also offers a strong protection from the dangers of extreme cold hitting the skin. Coyote fur is not only used because of its natural protection against the cold. Coyote fur is also in abundance in Canada and Canada Goose also promise that the fur used is only purchased from Canadian trappers that use humane trapping methods so no animal is inhumanely treated in order to gain the fur.

The final material used to complete the jacket is the outer material of the coat which is a special textile called the Artic Tech. This is made up of man-made fibres and coated in Teflon which is waterproof and keeps all of the heat from the goose down inside the jacket. The Artic-Tech is also lightweight which makes wearing the jacket comfortable and means it can be carried around easily. The Teflon also offers a protection against strong winds. The Artic.-Tech has been specially formulated by Canada goose and the inner material used (or lining) is nylon. Nylon is a great insulator and is also very flexible which allows for freedom of movement when wearing a goose jacket.
Additional extras used on the jackets are the zippers, which are made for Canada goose by the Yoshida Kogyo Company. The zippers are specially made to be very durable and easy to use, even while wearing gloves. Some jackets also sport metal or cord drawstrings as well as durable plastic toggles or buttons.
All of these materials used make the Canada Goose Jackets unique, waterproof, durable, lightweight, protective and most importantly, incredibly warm.
