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.

The Label That Embraces Arctic Adventures

Canada Goose Brand Guide

The cold harsh winters of Canada aren’t exactly the most bewitching of environments, however, it’s 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 emblem now possessing residency all over the globe.  Not only will you find the iconic logo disc hot-footing it around the brand’s native Toronto, but you’ll also see it on the far-flung cobbles of Milan and Stockholm, of course, sported by each city’s most stylish denizens. However, Canada Goose’s profound success did not occur overnight – for decades the brand has consciously chipped away at the industry; consistently researching, studying and never taking its finger off the pulse of innovation within its sector.

Canada Goose Jacket

History of Canada Goose:

Originally founded as Metro Sportswear Ltd by Polish immigrant Sam Tick, the company started out life producing raincoats, woollen garments and outerwear that were all created specifically for treacherously cold climates. The early ’70s welcomed a key era for Metro Sportswear as they began to craft down-filled jackets – a pivotal move that would go on to become the cornerstone of Canada Goose’s modern-day existence. The early days also positioned David Reiss’ expertise at the forefront of the company – as Sam Tick’s son-in-law, Reiss was trusted to shape the brand with the employment of cutting-edge innovation – and this he did, eventually leading him to take the title of CEO. With dependable talent at the helm and an evolving reputation, Metro Sportswear began crafting bespoke down-filled jackets for the Canadian Rangers and Toronto’s Police Department.

During 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 authentic. It was at this stage that the brand began to undergo the transformation into the label that it is recognized as today. David Reiss purchased Metro Sportswear outright and began re-registering the brand’s down-filled parkas under the new moniker of ‘Snow Goose’.

By the ’90s the arctic imprint had uncovered presence across the pond and deep into Europe which is where a small roadblock in its identity was first discovered. Unfortunately, another company had already traded under the name ‘Snow Goose’ for some time and so the namesake ‘Canada Goose‘ was exclusively born for branding within Europe. But the name instantly 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 rooted 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 ‘crafted in Canada’ aspect of the label’s lauded philosophy.

Canada Goose of Present:

Canada Goose remains a linchpin to the country from which it is born. With 63 years of entrepreneurial spirit and industry know-how driving it, the company is an unstoppable force within the ever-evolving world of outerwear thanks to its very particular set of core values.

For some time now Canada Goose has steered clear of traditional marketing tools, such as glossy ad campaigns, in favour of simple word of mouth. Operating in such an unconventional manner has enabled the brand to cut pricey promotional overheads to retain its home-grown manufacturing facet, which of course is a critical component of its modern infrastructure, if not the most imperative. While word of mouth allows Canada Goose’s coveted star and luxury identity to continue rising, so do the brand’s unique and captivating anecdotes.

Canada Goose has accompanied generation after generation through myriad expeditions so it only seems fitting that the brand would go on to launch ‘Goose People’ – an initiative highlighting these individuals and their extreme adventures. Shortly after Goose People’s inception, Ray Zahab – a proud representative of Canada Goose, entered the Guinness Book of World Records for his trek to the South Pole – a journey that saw him on foot without skis and that lasted 33 days, 23 hours and 55 minutes in total, the fastest time ever recorded. It is the brand’s commitment and flair for these harsh environments which bolsters its strong presence around the globe.

While building the brand’s HQ in Toronto and growing its monumental workforce, which is said to employ more than 6% of Canada’s cut and sew industry, Canada Goose has in recent years expanded its operations to introduce knitwear. First launched back in 2017, Canada Goose knitwear meant that the brand could cater to more mainstream outings within the city streets while ensuring form and function, as always, remained at the heart of the company. An example of the label’s knitwear venture is embodied by the highly favoured Canada Goose Hybridge Knit Jacket, crafted from warming merino wool and yielding a hybrid silhouette.

Canada Goose Hallmarks:
