Why is Canada Goose So Expensive? A Closer Look.

What makes a good winter jacket? In our cold Canadian climate, warmth is the number one criteria. While warmth can be subjective to a degree (some handle the cold better than others), -30°C is still -30°C and you don’t want to face the cold unprepared. A well insulated jacket should get the job done, but are all insulation types created equal, and on that same note, are all jackets created equal? The price would have you believe they are not, and to a certain extent price is a good indicator of quality. While branding has a lot to do with

Avoiding the Plastic Vortex with icebreaker—One Swim & Panel Discussion at a Time

Feel like swimming through a huge pile of trash floating in the Pacific Ocean? That’s what icebreaker ambassador Ben Lecomte did with his Vortex Swim team in June 2019. Their destination was the infamous Pacific Trash Vortex in the Pacific Ocean somewhere between California and Japan. Ben swam more than 300 nautical miles towards it. Why? To raise awareness about a near-invisible threat to our ecosystem: microplastics.  On November 14, 2019 icebreaker presented a panel in collaboration with Altitude Sports about Ben’s expedition in the Pacific. Leaders in the sustainable development sector gathered in Montreal’s Mile End neighbourhood to discuss

Back to School 2019: The Essentials For Surviving A New Year At University

When it comes to the start of a new semester at University, you’re either looking forward to it or dreading it. It leaves no one indifferent. For some, it’s a snap back to reality, a curtain call on summer. For others, it’s the moment they’ve been waiting for when they can finally bust out their new school bag and get back into school mode. I love back to school. I might be a bit of a nerd, but I love heading back to campus in September. After a summer spent as an Intern at Altitude Sports, the return to class

New UGG Women’s Sandals for Summer in Canada

Cozy sheepskin lined footwear and women’s winter boots - that’s how UGG built its reputation in Canada, the United States, and beyond. When most of us think of the brand, we see people (mostly women) walking around campuses, offices, or cities in the ultra-warm suede boots during the colder months, not summer sandals. But sandals are what we’re talking about - more specifically the new UGG Braelynn and Jane Patent women’s styles.  This brings us to the company’s newest 2019 summer collection, which happens to offer sandals and slides perfect for summer in North of the Border. Get ready to

A Journey through the Southwest

The first signs of spring are upon us. Every day the sun feels a bit warmer and daylight stretches out a bit longer. Ski lifts have now shut off for the season and wet snow gives way to muddy trails. We love winter in Quebec - the snow has a way of transforming a landscape like no other, but every year around this time we get the urge to go. This year we dreamed of desert towers, long open roads and cool nights under the stars. As a landscape photographer, road tripping through the Southwest is a rite of passage,

Counting Kate’s Sheep at a Remote New Zealand Station with Icebreaker

A herd of merino sheep crowded one side of the road - a confused mass punctuated by random bleating. With calm confidence, two young flannel-clad shepherds on horseback guided the animals away from the dusty track. If a sheep strayed, a shepherd whistled, and sheepdogs pounced, bringing the wanderer back in line. The scene is out of a Western, but instead of a desert, we were hemmed in by the mountains surrounding Mt Nicholas Station in a secluded region of Queenstown, New Zealand. I jumped out of the boxy Land Rover to watch, pulling on my Tech Trainer jacket to

In the Cradle of Cycling: Touring Castelli’s Italian headquarters and riding the nearby Dolomites

I’m travelling to the Mecca of cycling, Fonzaso, in Italy’s Belluno province. I survey the rolling landscape from our van window as Monte Grappa beckons in the distance, a reminder of the history this part of the Venetian Prealps contains. Even better, I’ll be in the hands of Castelli, the cycling brand of all cycling brands. As a lifelong enthusiast, this trip is hard to grasp - but I’m buzzing and can’t wait to get out and begin exploring. We arrive at the villa we’ll be calling home, and I quickly realize my accommodation isn't an ordinary layover. It’s placed

A Weekend in the Life of Kari Traa

Head to Norway to live a journey in the life of Kari Traa, the brand and the founder. Everyone dreams of flying to a far-off destination knowing adventure awaits, but not knowing the exact details of that adventure. Well, I’ve always dreamed of this, and my recent trip to Norway with Kari Traa was my chance to live it. The only challenge was packing for the unknown. I arrived at Oslo and was greeted by smiling members of Kari Traa’s team waving Norwegian flags. Already, I was seeing the warm Kari Traa team spirit. Discover Kari Traa The team took

The Fjällräven Classic: Conquering the King’s Road

“Our mission is to inspire the world to discover and to walk within nature. We believe strongly it will make a saner future for everyone. And we have our experience and our passion for nature to guide us.''  -Martin Axelhed, President of Fjällräven The Classic hike was created by Ake Nordin, founder of Fjällräven, to celebrate the Scandinavian concept of friluftsliv, life in the outdoors. In 1970, the company started this weeklong outdoor hike, lending equipment and explaining how to use it. Forty years later, I am invited on the very same hike in Northern Sweden, continuing this splendid tradition.

The North Face Conservation Efforts

With the state of the planet today and growing climate concerns,  brands like The North Face and many others, are beginning to take matters into their own hands. When it comes to the outdoor industry, conserving the environment is a big part of the business.
