Canada goose jacket, is it worth it, guide part 3

Genuine coyote fur trim of a Canada goose jacket, number 3: material

The material is made out of 85% polyester and 15% cotton, it is water-resistant, durable, and hard-wearing, as well as wind resistant. It is not quite gore-tex membrane material but it is definitely thick and much stiffer than what you get from Moncler. That being said, nylon is typically a higher-end artificial fiber and polyester. In my opinion, the stiffness of the fabric is directly felt to the entire jacket and other people would have compared the jacket to wearing that x-ray vest at the dentist’s office. Also, the ribbed cuffs are quite useful because they prevent cold air from coming in.

Pocket and zippers on a Canada goose jacket:

The jacket features an abundance of pockets, has lots of Zamak metal snap buttons that are plastic covered. Of course, all branded. The zipper is an injection molded plastic from YKK, ironically, it is the same one used at the Moncler Jackets. For some reason though, I find it a lot harder to close. So for a jacket that retails for $1,000, I would have expected a higher-end zipper made out of machined metal and not just an average YKK product that I can get on Amazon for about 6 dollars.

Duck down feathers in a Canada goose jacket, number 1:

Even though the brand is called Canada Goose, the actual filling of this jacket consists of duck down feathers which are inferior to goose down. So what is the difference between goose down and duck down? Well, goose down comes in larger clusters, usually traps the air better which means you get a higher fill power and more insulating with a goose than a duck. Because this jacket uses duck down, it is not surprising that there is a fill power of 625.
