I think we can finally put away our down Canada Goose winter coats. The magnolias have finally bloomed in Toronto and we’ve been in the double digits for temperature for the past few days, yesss!
But that doesn’t mean no Canada Goose in our wardrobes until next winter, because they’ve just launched their first collection of Spring outerwear. There are 25 lightweight, technical jackets (including some Soft Shells) and they’ve applied their garment construction know-how and their knowledge of Canada’s unpredictable weather in creating the pieces. The Soft Shells are constructed out of a waterproof, three-layer fabric, but one that’s very breathable, and feature touches such as reflective tape (so you’re seen when you need to be, safety, people!) and Lycra cuffs with thumbholes.
In addition, there are three bright new colours added to the collection: Tundra Blossom, Torch and Altitude Blue. That’s the women’s Soft Shell Trenton jacket in Altitude Blue with Aurora Green I’ve got on here, which I put to the test on a predictably unpredictable spring day outdoors in Toronto. The high-loft fleece backing was a tad too warm when I set out for the day, but sure enough, the wind picked up and the temperature dropped within an hour and the jacket was just perfect for the conditions. I can’t wait to test it out hiking and on other outdoor adventures.
The Canada Goose Spring collection is currently available at Canada Goose Authorized Retailers around the world. For more information, visit www.canadagoose.com.
