Hooded Winter Jackets
Our Top Pick – Canada Goose Wyndham Parka | Classic Camo
A stand-out piece from fashion powerhouse Canada Goose, the Wyndham Parka in classic camo is unapparelled in both style and functionality. Canada Goose was founded in 1957 and quickly became a leader in winter wear, with their original parka the “Big Red” in the 1980s. The parka was so good it was used by scientists in Antarctica and worn by Laurie Skreslet who was the first Canadian ever to summit Mt. Everest in 1982.
Innovation and design have moved on and Canada Goose has made big strides forward with the Wyndham Parka. Crafted from hardy polycotton and white duck-down construction, real fur removable trim, and fleece-lined handwarmer pockets elevate the parka to one of the best in its category. Chin guard tricot fabric adds softness and comfort, while ribbed cuffs improve the coat’s retention of internal heat. The Wyndham Parka has a thermal experience index score of 3 which is designed for temperatures between -10/20c, making it more than ready to meet the demands of the world’s coldest places, so trust that it will handle any urban city effortlessly.
