Well, they are definitely warm, but they aren't that
warm. CG makes several different models. Some are only wearable in Antarctica but they even have some models that are designed for rainy environments. The iconic models are pretty warm but, as I said, you can wear a Chilliwack up to about 40F. The great thing about a Canada Goose parka in places where it is really cold, like upstate New York, is that you can just put it on and go. You typically don't have to worry about layering, etc. A CG parka is usually all you need even if you are just wearing a shudder
t-shirt. I find this extremely useful. It's -10 outside but the shopping mall or class room or wherever you are going isn't. Put on your parka and flip up the hood, if necessary. No hat, no scarf, no nothing. I usually keep gloves in one of the many pockets but very often you can get away without even that. When you get where you are going, just hang it up and you are wearing clothes suitable for a 74F office. It saves a huge amount of time and hassle.
