Here's my confession.  I took advantage of the sale and lifetime returns at Altrec.com to get the North Face Stone Sentinel.  It's like the McMurdo but sleeker.  It's been cold and windy here, 17-30F with winds of 10-15mph the past couple of days and my TNF has been real warm.  I've been wearing just a LS T-shirt underneath, no layering just for a warmth test, and even went for a walk at the park.  Now my legs were cold through my jeans, and my hands a bit wearing just Polartec gloves but everything else toasty warm.

 

Still looking for a great deal on a CG, but this coat gives me the luxury of time.

Congratulations on owning a great coat! Winter is a much more pleasurable experience when you're not freezing your ass off.

Good deal, it looks like I paid an extra $25 for the lifetime return policy and the size I need.

I picked up a small Manitoba off of eBay and, imo, it fits me better than the medium. I'm 5'10, 170 lbs.

Not sure I'd go as far to say the Stone Sentinel is 'just as good' as a CG coat, but certainly when you compare the price of that coat to say a similar CG model with respect to look (the Constable) the SS wins for price and value. Constable still gets the nod for ribbed wrist cuffs and overall nicer looking coat IMO. But I totally see the sense in just buying a cheaper coat that should keep you just as warm. On top of that, CG is overpriced at retail IMO and it's going to get worse next season.

yeah well the fact that the Stone Sentinel is waterproof makes it a much better coat for practical use...

Yeah I'd like to see CG make all their coats waterproof at some point. My dad's parka is waterproof. Very nice.

Waterproofing was the main reason why I sold all of mine.

Authorized Canada Goose retailer ZB Sports has their CG gear on sale via their Amazon site. Includes Chilliwack, Constable, and Expedition. Just search for 'Canada Goose' in the search bar immediately above their items. (Not the main site search.)

That's why guys wear thermal underwear to keep the legs warm and a fleece-lined jeans should block the cold and wind. I like leather sheepskin gloves to keep the hands warm in cold weather. Only downside to the Stone Sentinel is the faux fur hood trim. For a little more, they could have used a real coyote fur hood trim.

Notice I said for a warmth test, I purposely under dressed to test the coat.  Real fur ruff would have the SPCA all over their Sh!#.  Nice coyote ruffs can be found for $50 or less, $25 for a tailor to switch them out if you were really concerned.  Of course now you have a $270 coat but 1 of a kind!

 

The only real downsides to the Stone Sentinel IMHO are the cuffs and logos if you can get past the made in China tag.  The logos can be blacked out rather easily, the cuffs you just have to accept.

Made In China is today good quality. All the major brands have their clothing made there, according to their specified design. You can still source domestic, you just have to pay a premium for it.

 

The North Face is related to JanSport, a well known outdoor goods manufacturer. You can't go wrong with the coat. You'd want to switch out the synthetic since natural fur doesn't freeze and seems to hold in more warmth in cold weather.
