    I'm hesitating on getting a Krane Emory Bomber vs TOJ Fishtail. Can anyone comment on how warm it is for Canadian winter (i.e. -30 degrees celcius)??

    I have some stuff from them and it's really well priced, there stuff is also fairly common in the UK.


    I have just bought a Norrøna /29 Parka, it's goretex and ret9, so that should be an improvement from my CG.

    Expensive. You can get a Spiewak Gold Fleece N3B parka off Rakuten for $260 - made in USA with real coyote fur hood trim. Considering these are imported nowadays, I like the quality and the price.

    Krane sucks for most folks.

    Since you seem to be working for them, this is in poor taste. Although I do think the Krane is awesome and totally worth it

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

    Yeah,the coat seems really good, I just don' know if I want to drop that much for a coat though, still thinking about it! 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.


    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!

    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.
