We had never heard of Nobis-a Canadian company with a distinguished heritage of fashionably current, performance outerwear pieces clocked with technical features---but styled for everyday wear for those not scaling Mt. Everest...

There was a lot to admire about this label!


For starters...the design details of this lifestyle brand-with waterproof/breathable laminated membranes embraced by citified fabrics (including new tech poly wool, a DWR treated coated cotton/nylon)) that are urban friendly, seam sealed withDWR finishes, YKK zippers that are the best in the biz for durability and weatherproof-ness, and warm insulation of 100% premium Canadian origin white duck down-which is lighter and volume,, but warmer-hence "we don't have to overstuff it"...aka warmth without the bulk.
