I regret missing out on this one. IRL it looks better with the fur trim removed.
Canada Goose look fckn terrible. They also use pretty average quality down and weigh a bloody ton. If you're after cheaper and more usable option than an Everest  then I'd consider something like a Fjallraven. The Down No 16 is a great jacket. High quality European down, half the weight of a CG and you won't look like a walking billboard or Alaskan oil worker. The Haglofs 19Fourteen Floda down is also very decent. It has a slimmer non Bibendum fit and a Goretex shell to...
The beeswax has been purposely distressed but I think smooth looks much better.  With the glut of recent models I presume Barbour now sell beeswax but if not Greenland wax gives a nice finish and is really easy to apply with a hairdryer. Odd how those tops are different sizes. I didn't measure the Old Bill jacket I sent back but I reckon it was TTS for a medium. Guessing around 22" p2p. Do your tops look like they are made by adidas or Barbour?
The Everest is rated to be comfortable at -40° and it's made by PHD who make the worlds best expedition down clothing and sleeping bags. In that field no other company comes close. Their skill and experience combined with the Cabourn design, historic details and quality materials make for an amazing coat. However, and I'm sure many on here will disagree, but in my humble opinion it's pretty much useless for the UK. It's just too wet and warm in this country to get the best...
Works fine for me.

Adiwick looks much better against that background but I'm not feeling the distressed finish. Mind you, it will most likely hit 40-50% off in the sales and rewaxing isn't difficult...   Also not sure if this is of interest but  Nemen have everything at 20% off this week plus free delivery. Tempted to take a punt on a hooded overshirt to layer under Barbour/Fjallraven/Camerman.
42? That's Lilliputian sizing.
No the boot looked awful.  I meant the black jacket. Mine turned up this afternoon but it's already on it's way back. It seemed really well made but the branding and clear map pocket looked tacky. Fit was nice, I'd say TTS but I looked like Met Armed Response in it. Not a good look.   Unless it's seriously limited numbers I reckon there will be loads left come the sales.As I said in the earlier post, I think I'll regret passing on the TS but couldn't get over those mid...
