  1. Where might I find a zippered, detachable wired hood extension. It forms a tunnel and attaches to the existing hood – protection from the wind.

    1. Hello Tom, unfortunately, we do not sell these but some jackets are designed with them. This may be something you would have to reach out directly to the brand for.

    1. Hello Alaa, some brands we do ship internationally while others are restricted and cannot be shipped outside of Canada. You can find the shipping restrictions located just below the “Add to Cart” button on each product page.

  2. My resolute Canada goose is incredibly warm. In my experience, it’s like wrapping up in your comforter and braving the cold. It is rather shapeless but makes up for that in warmth.

  3. Canada Goose parkas are amazing. BUT, the Mystique Parka will absolutely not cut it below -30. Even at -20, its not that warm. The cold air comes up through the bottom – there is a split after the zipper ends, and you still need layers underneath. It’s a fitted coat, which also prohibits layers, and tends to make it not as warm as say, the resolute or expedition. Nice city coat. I eventually sold sold mine.

  4. Please make extreme weather coats in bigger sizes for men and women. Small and shorter people can alway but from your children’s line but larger people don’t have a choice. Please help keep people warm and cater to that untapped market.

    1. Hello Debra, thank you for your comment. I agree it is necessary to have a range of models so that everyone can keep warm throughout the frigid winters although unfortunately only being a retailer selling the coats, we have no control over the sizes and styles that are created.

  5. You need to make bigger coats for bigger people in the north. People come in all sizes and they get cold too. Smaller people but the children’s sizes but what do larger adults do? Please cater to these people because they exist.
