The Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber Jacket Explained
When it comes to designer knowledge and the finer details of various Aphrodite items, few people are wiser in the area than our very own store staff. The Aphrodite ‘Staff Knowledge Share’ series offers our team members the chance to share their expertise on a wide range of luxury brands that call our roster home and this week it’s Jorge’s turn to explore the Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber Jacket. Fiercely durable and guaranteed to keep you toasty when the weather takes a turn for the worse, let’s find out what Sales Assistant Jorge knows about this iconic design.
Backstory & Construction:
Currently available in black and royal blue (Polar Bear Institute) colourways, with red, olive and graphite versions served up seasonally, the Chilliwack Bomber jacket is a personal favourite with Aphrodite customers. Though nowhere near as bitter as the Arctic, from which the brand continually draws inspiration, up here in the North of England things can turn pretty cold, pretty quickly, which is why jackets of this thermal caliber are well-loved in the region.
Crafted with a robust polycotton outer that’s sure to resist general wear and tear, plus heavy abrasions, it’s lined with nylon which makes it efficient in gliding on top of base layers for that extra swatch of warmth. Additionally, the Chilliwack boasts a fill power rating of 625, therefore meriting the silhouette immensely insulating. More specifically, the utilised duck down has approximately two million fluffy filaments that interlock and overlap with each ounce, creating warming pockets of air while worn through in testing temperatures. CG certifies the design appropriate for the most extreme conditions with a temperature gage of -10°C to -20°C.
A removable fur ruff is featured at the hood. The fur has been ethically sourced in North America and its purpose is to diminish air flow; instead framing the face and creating turbulent warm air within the hood which directly retains head and neck heat. This retention is further functioned with wiring set within the hood which provides stability and structure.
Water-resistant and imbued with Arctic Tech®, the shell of the garment features a zip closure and storm flap, four fleece-lined pockets with an extra zip pocket situated on the sleeve and ribbed trims for locking in body heat. With functionality firmly on side, Canada Goose complete the jacket’s exterior with some colourful details, including the signature red, white and blue disc logo, coupled alongside monikers placed at the zipper and bottom left pocket.
Canada Goose Fit & Sizing:
When investing in a jacket of the Chilliwack’s stature we know how important it is for our customers to be sure that they’re ordering the right size, which is why we’ve detailed some sizing advice in the notes below.
- The Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber runs from sizes S to XXL here at Aphrodite.
- From past experience, we’ve found that our own customers tend to drop one size down to their normal size as the Chilliwack’s construction can be fairly generous. However, if you’re happy to take the time to test various sizes, we always recommend starting with your usual size.
Caring for the Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber Jacket:
- Dry clean only. Remove fur ruff before dry cleaning to avoid damage.
- Do not machine wash.
- As a standard, Canada Goose offer a lifetime guarantee if the product is faulted by themselves – offering to repair or replace the jacket if damaged.
Adds Ons & Alternatives:
The Chilliwack Bomber Jacket can be paired with an array of CG accessories to ensure that your look is uniform from head to toe. Here at Aphrodite we stock a selection of Canada Goose hats & scarves in an assortment of colours for your liking.
If you’re unable to secure the size you need in the Chilliwack, we think the Canada Goose Wyndham Parka is a great alternative. Priced slightly higher at £895, it’s formulated with all of the same elements of the Chilliwack – just losing the bomber’s ribbed hemline and also opting for a new snap fastening.
