CLIMATE LAB CERTIFIED Warm Science of our Parkas
Worlds Warmest
World’s Warmest We use goose down because it's the world's very best insulator. Geese produce larger down clusters than ducks, resulting in loftier, longer-lasting down that keeps you warmer and feels luxurious.
700 Fill Power
700+ Fill Power Fill power is more than a measure of fluffiness, it also informs the insulating value of the down. At 700+ fill power, our goose down offers superior warmth with less weight.

Super warm light weight jacket
Unfortunately the fit appears to be colour dependent. I was fortunate enough to spot the mid Powder in store and size S was a perfect fit so I snapped it up. More recently, I ordered a short Powder Parka (long cold Canadian winters) again size small and again a perfect fit but changed my mind on the colour when “gunmetal green” became available. This size S could not fit more differently. As a matter of fact I would estimate an entire size smaller.

LOVE
I LOVE this jacket! The quality is amazing and it’s so warm. The only downside is how heavy it is. I find it makes it a bother to carry around if you want to take it off during day.

Amazing Coat
I'm 5'8 and pretty slim, I ordered a size S and it was s little too small, so I exchanged it for a size M and it fits perfectly. It has an inside pocket near the boob area for bus cards, a wallet or anything that you want to have easy access to. The pockets heat up my hands SO fast! Overall, this coat is amazing, it keeps me really warm and I love the style. Would 100% recommend!!

Love! Super warm
Quality is amazing. Love the fact that they use responsible down which means no ducks or geese were harmed in the process of making these coats. It’s super duper warm; best for cold snowy winters. Not bulky, and extremely flattering to wear! I got the beige color and it’s beautiful. My hubby told me to buy all my clothes at aritzia after seeing the quality of my new jacket.

THE BEST FOR WINTER!
Living in Vancouver, I couldn't justify buying a pricey winter coat. I've been using a cheap one that only survived a year before losing its warmth. I finally gave in and got this. I only regret not buying it sooner!! It has all the features I'm looking for: sleek design, removable fur, hidden breast pocket, back straps, warm pockets. The clip in the breast pocket is a nice surprise too! I'm 5' and the length is perfect for me. It sits right in the middle of my hips. I could not recommend this enough!

A Truly Wonderful Coat
If you want and need a stylish fully functional jacket to keep you warm in even subzero weather and yet get one at a very fair price, then buy the Powder Parka.
