  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
