OSC definitely looks nice. The Nukka is exactly the type of coat she would like. Looks like most US or internet places don't carry it or don't have it in stock. Maybe better luck next summer/fall when places are stocking back up on winter. I don't mind spending $800 on a jacket for her, but not if the quality doesn't come with it.

Are you referring to OSC Outdoor Survival Canada http://outdoorsurvivalcanada.com/

 

or

 

OSC Cross http://www.osccross.com/

 

Both are Canadian made and both are quality makers ( i have held and tried on parkas from both labels), but I haven't been able to determine if there is a relationship between two brands (same company or not).

My mother owns an OSC and my niece has a Cross coat and honestly they seem the same to me, with a slight advantage to OSC.

From what I was able to google, they are the same company. I read somewhere that OSC and CG was originally the same business as well and they split up into 2, one real outdoor and one more fashiony (can't find it now though), also rumor has it OSC used to manufacture CG coats.

Nobis is another company that makes what sounds like excellent parkas - they're fully waterproof, which CG aren't, and have real fur (like CG). They are also a bit more stylish in my opinion, and appear to have a few more useful bells and whistles in terms of pockets and stuff.

I've had my black CG for 5 seasons now, and just the other day someone told me it looked like it was new. I don't think I'd buy again, I'd probably get Nobis, but it goes for around $800 full price.

Cold Manufactured and OSC Cross look pretty nice too. The Bay in Canada had a few women's models for half off during Boxing Day.

Thanks.  I was able to find a Canadian retailer that had the model of OSC my wife liked.  Unfortunately, after it arrived it was too small.  Really unfortunate that shipping it back cost me $70 USD.  So, won't be ordering a parka for her again unless free shipping and free returns are included.  It's the risk of ordering online without being able to try on for size.  Thanks for all the suggestions though.  Good stuff!

Cheapest place for Langford size XS or S Black?

I finally got around to sending my parka back to the store who has then forwarded to Canada Goose. Just waiting to hear back now...its been a couple of weeks but I heard it can take months. Fingers crossed I get a new parka with nice fur. Just hope they have changed the quality of materials they've been using.

Has anyone here tried on a Moncler "Rethel" coat?  

 

I have an XXS Chateau and recently tried on the Moncler and it's night/day different - much more form fitting and tailored, but with the same coyote fur.   Can't imagine paying x3 the cost though.
