Shopping light, winter jacket. I adhere to two different brand, Moncler Canada goose in between.
Both sides seem to be well made and warm. I find Moncler has more details, it is beautiful, but it is comparable to the Canada goose 3 times the price.
Anyone have any of these brands, and are willing to share their opinions?
I think the Canada goose as more utilitarian. Excellent quality, reasonable price. Moncler is also good, definitely more stylish than the CG, but just a bit too much IMO.
I personally think that every in the cold north face did a good job as well.
Another problem with my Moncler coat is that mine is the smallest– size 0 and fits nicely up top, but bells out from the chest down. The Moncler does not keep my lower half warm because the bottom is too “bell like.” Being a Canadian and former military, I can tell you that if you are keeping warm with feathers, you have to be making contact with those feathers in order for the garment to provide warmth and be effective. What I like about the Whistler is that it is a “slim” fit and if it is too tight, just unzip the 2 way zipper at the bottom of the coat.
