Whilst Canada Goose does not make jackets specifically for skiing and boarding, it's outerwear has such a good reputation that we would be crazy not to include it alongside other brands.
As the name suggests, it's a Canadian brand, and even though the parent company has been around since the late 1950's, the Canada Goose brand itself is relatively modern, having been re-branded from Snow Goose at the end of the 1990's.
The Canada Goose brand is best known for it's traditional fur-lined parka-style jackets, which as well as having a good reputation for keeping Canadians warm during their long, freezing winters, now have a reputation as an icon for winter-style amongst the rich and famous.
As well as having a good reputation for their warmth, Canada Goose products have become highly desirable fashion items, particularly their jackets, something that is now reflected in their price range, which is definitely aimed at the top end of the market. The jackets are traditionally Parka style, with fur-lined hoods and down filling for extra warmth. And with the big trademark Canada Goose badge on the chest.
The jackets have become a favourite amongst the rich and the famous, with big names such as Matt Damon, Hilary Duff and Emma Watson all having been spotted in them. Canada Goose jackets have also made appearances in some Hollywood blockbusters, such as The Day After Tomorrow and National Treasure, all good publicity for the brand (unless you don't like the films or the celebs that sport them!).
