Canada Goose -a high-end outerwear brand ---with its premium Hutterite goose down insulation ---used to insulate technical apparel---is sold in ski shops and top retail stores too.

Well-dressed customers who avoid any geographic location with an incline- appreciate the quality and stylishness of even the super warm Artic expedition-worthy collection.

Interesting-the new Spring 2012 limited edition collection of understated and exclusive pieces to layer or wear on their two shades of black or white. The two tones that mix ands match with everything.

GRANDBY VEST-Hip length, drop tail design, storm flap collar, 2 lower fleece lined- hand warming pockets-625 fill

Full draw cord-insures slim fit, lower snap close hand warmer pockets,  wind guard behind front zip-Richmond Hoodie

Canada Goose joins some of our fav labels like Nau, Kjus and Rab---in introducing performance items-with slim profiles-fashionable/handsome enough for urban trendy types.
Great quilting pattern on back of hoodie.

Beaconsfield Shirt-really a  key piece for everyone...wear snapped up or open like a blazer-made from 800 fill Hutterite goose down-cuff and waist hems have built-in stretch.brushed tricot along inner collar

 insulating  versatile collection ...that we think-will sell really well as it lends itself to lifestyle consumers and their wardrobes---and not just those who are powder hounds/bound- no matter the calendar.

Summerside Skirt: Very popular  stylein mountain resorts- left YKK zip/mid thigh length

Stylish additions to the Canada Goose line-up include seven pieces here---men's and women's Beaconsfield ultra-lightweight shirts, Richmond Hoodies, Grandby Down Vests, as well as a ladies' Summerside Down Skirt.
Beaconsfield Shirt-in black

Richmond Hoodie

We loved every separate-no surprise! Made in Canada (durable quality)- with luxury details and trims like YKK stainless steel /black matte zippers, snaps and tonal discs, and made using techy fabrics and Canada Goose's signature Artic Tech fabric that's DWR finished for water resistance.

And of course, 100% Canadian Goose insulation...for rather chic/sleek multi-functional outerwear with a slim polished fit.

tonal Canada Goose discs match up-featured on each piece
AT SELECT RETAILERS---we were told the collection will price at around $225 for the skirt---up to $500 for the Richmond Hoodie.


ALSO---love the color of this Hybridge Lite jacket---that delivers lightweight but meaningful warmth to the core via the proprietary Thermal Mapping™.
-combined with stretch (Polartec® Power Stretch®) where you need it.
