Winter Coat Thread FW11 - Page 7

post #91 of 210

Do you guys think a wool coat will be warm enough to survive Canadian winters? (I don't like bombers or parkas) Thanks.

Yeah, well in Monteal, the average is probably a bit higher than TO, but I still want to make sure the coat can handle harsh conditions like those.

Krane sucks for most folks.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll look it up!

I actually had a Peacoat for the whole winter, last year. I survived it, but I think a bomber/parka is a better option. You can buy a wool coat though, just make sure to layer a lot.

A wool coat is warm but you want a Canada Goose parka or an N3B parka - with them, you can survive subzero Canadian winters in comfort.

Can you really compare a $200 polyester-filled Alpha N-3B Parka to a $600 100% goose down-filled Canada Goose parka??? I don't think that Alpha N-3B Parka can withstand -15C weather, but the CG can definitely do -30C...

It depends on the model, I've had 2 (chiliwack and Constable) and neither of them was warm enough for -16C (-25 with wind chill), I had to wear thermal underwear and heavy knits underneath.

That's strange, everyone in Canada swears by the CG...

But just comparing specs, I don't know how or why the Alpha N-3B Parka can even be recommended. I myself want one because I like the look of it, but what if it doesn't keep me warm???

I'm not a big fan of any fur on men's winter coats, but I do like some of the parkas. The greatest look for a man in winter is a wool pea coat. They look great on most guys and are very stylish!

Yeah but they don't keep you warm.

I am looking for something with some style and that is probably significantly lighter than the majority of the coats being mentioned here.  I was wondering what you guys think about these two.  I really like the looks of them.

I think you have to buy a Expedition for it be warm enough for -30c, but it all depends on how much time you spend outside and the type of cold.

I'm not skittish as I have worked outside 8 hours a day in all types of weather, but I was fairly underwhelmed with my Constable.

I didn't feel like it was warm enough and I wore it around +-0C where it went from snow to rain which resulted in my clothes underneath getting soaked, it happened again after I had it waterproofed as the Scandinavian agent recommended, so I sold it.

I have a bunch of mates who all have owned several CG coats and all of them have sold them again and gone back to Arc'teryx etc.

I agree that the CG parka and chiliwack are much warmer than most wool coats, but I find it hard to justify paying 600+ for a puffy looking jacket. I wanted to buy a Wool Trench Coat from Burberry, but too bad the boutique never has what the online web has... Any recommendations for a wool trench?
