Canada Goose, love it or leave it?
I purchased the Alliston Jacket and am truly impressed with how lightweight the jacket is, yet keeps you completely warm and windproof in the elements. I live in Ohio where the winters are snowy and frigid so this checks off all the boxes for winter gear needs.
Not going to lie, I added the jacket to the online cart and then sat on it for a while because I wasn’t sure if I can justify purchasing a puffer jacket at that price. Even after the package arrived, the tag was kept in tact just in case I changed my mind. It wasn’t until a huge snowstorm over the holidays and time spent outside that I began to LOVE the purchase.
For perspective, I’m 5’2 and the jacket hits just above the hips and perfectly covers my backside. There are internal and external pockets, one of which allows for the jacket to be completely packable for travel purposes, and can then transform into a pillow (haven’t utilized these features yet but it’s nice to know there is additional functionality). The Alliston Jacket and Clark’s hiking boots quickly became my official winter uniform.
Thanks for the read! Stay warm and stay safe.
