Canada Goose Freestyle Vest 4150 MR 316 Camo

Canada Goose Freestyle Vest Available Now

Canada Goose

Famous for their practical extreme weather garments, Canada Goose present a down filled vest in a statement camouflage colourway.

The vest or gilet is an item of clothing that serves as a middle ground between fully fledged jackets and warm layering thanks to the padded middle and open sleeves. Canada Goose’s interpretation of the vest has been made for use between temperatures between -5 and 5 degrees Celsius, with a thick down padding making for an extremely soft and warm inner. Two large front pockets add essential practicality to the gilet, with the pockets being split into three; a large background pocket, a smaller fleece lined pocket and an even smaller front pouch making for plenty of space.

Aside from the obvious practicality that Canada Goose pride themselves on, the Canada Goose Freestyle Vest is finished in a statement camouflage, with embroidered Canada Goose branding at the chest and pocket adding subtle yet vibrant contrast to the piece.

Perfect for the unpredictable weather, the Camouflage Canada Goose Freestyle Gilet is available now for £250.

With a history that pins them as one of Canada’s most infamous products, Canada Goose have over half a century of experience when it comes to crafting jackets using down, with a now world wide reputation that grew from humble beginnings of being on the back of some of Canada’s Police men whilst on duty in the cold.

Now a fully-fledged fashion brand that has grown to become an international beacon of style and performance, the Canada Goose Expedition Parka is a prime example of how the brand has positioned itself to perfectly slot into a modern and contemporary wardrobe.

Despite its original purpose of supplying the National Science foundation at the McMurdo research station in Antarctica, the Canada Goose expedition parka has managed to carry on its extreme cold credentials into a functional city street look.
With a Teflon coated arctic tech fabric that operates as a protective outer, this jacket carries a duck down insulation and a two-way locking zip to ensure total warmth and protection. Coyote fur trims the hood, whilst four fleece lined hand warmer pockets ensure that you remain toasty no matter what the weather. Finished by the Canada Goose logo to the chest and an expedition name patch, this jacket is a genuine piece of heavy duty outerwear that is ready to stand up to anything the winter can throw at you, bringing with it an unrivalled amount of experience from one of the world’s harshest environments.

Canada Goose Brand Guide

Canada Goose

The cold harsh winters of Canada aren’t exactly the most nurturing of environments- however; it is in the extremes of these baron snowdrifts and sub zero temperatures that the inspiration for one of the nation’s most cherished exports was born.

Canada Goose has become the Great White North’s leading example of Canadian ingenuity and design, with the unmissable Canada Goose patch logo being spotted not just on the streets of Toronto, but on the far flung fashion conscious cobbles of Milan and Stockholm.  However- the success of Canada Goose was far from spontaneous. With a studied, cautious growth, the label remains as humble today as it did in its earliest existence back in 1957.

Originally founded as Metro Sportswear Ltd by Polish immigrant Sam Tick, the company started out life producing raincoats, woolen garments and outerwear that were created specifically for the outdoor lifestyle in treacherously cold climates. The early 1970’s saw a key era for Metro Sportswear, as they began to craft down filled jackets. It also saw Sam Tick’s son in law, David Reiss join the company, and eventually become CEO, leading to new innovative approaches to crafting down filled outerwear- becoming a leading private down manufacturer. This reputation gave Metro Sportswear the impetus to start creating custom made to order down filled jackets and parkas, which were used by authorities from the Canadian Rangers, to the nations city’s Police departments.

By the 1980’s Metro Sportswear employed over 50 people, with production still taking place entirely in Canada. Every stitch was finished on home soil, making Metro Sportswear’s products wholly trusted and relied upon. It was at this stage that the brand began to undergo the transformation into the label that it is recognized as today. Metro Sportswear was then purchased by David Reiss- his first act in charge was to officially register any of their down filled parkas under the name of Snow Goose. The 1990’s saw expansion, and Metro Sportswear started to sell their now cherished products in Europe, where another company had already registered the Snow Goose name. As a result, anything sold in Europe was registered and branded as Canada Goose.

The name stuck, and when David Reiss’ son Dani took control of the business, in 2001, he made the decision to only produce under the name of Canada Goose, and, most importantly, keep all of their production firmly in Canada, rather than move manufacturing to cheaper methods abroad.

Dani Reiss was essentially responsible for turning Canada Goose into the global phenomenon it is today- by focusing on the made and used in Canada aspect of the unique labels story, he forged a desirability for effective outerwear that carries its own sense of style and purpose. It was this attention to the Canada Goose story that led to the label spreading to far flung corners of the globe- all under Dani Reiss’ w12atchful gaze.

At now over 50 years old, Canada Goose is a true representation of its home country’s past and present. Still respecting its roots as a home grown label that serves its wearers to protect them against the elements as they work, Canada Goose is just as much a piece of Canada now as it was back in 1957.

With a sense of authenticity, Canada Goose relates to the stories of those who have worn the label over the years, with innovations in style and design coming from feedback from everyday wearers on home soil, to some of the world’s bravest pioneers. One of these intrepid explorers was Canadian mountaineer Laurie Skreslet. The early 1980’s saw him undertake his mission to scale Mount Everest whilst wearing a specially designed Canada Goose parka. Features that were used on the jacket for his climb are still used on designs today, proving Canada Goose’s commitment to supplying only the very best quality and details to its wearers.

It is this passion that drives Canada Goose to maintain its heritage, and continue to bring their made in Canada philosophy to the world. With each and every stitch on a Canada Goose jacket still being finished on Canadian ground, the cold weather identity and superior craftsmanship behind each Canada Goose jacket is truly sought after.

With materials that are specifically chosen for their hard wearing, protective nature and premium feel, the Canada Goose jacket has become a cult wardrobe piece for some of the world’s most famous faces- from Daniel Craig to Drake, the Canada Goose patch has become a trademark for authentic Canadian production and unmissable style.
