An Exceptionally Warm Jacket!
I was very impressed with the quality of this jacket. I have tried it in temperatures of -15C with wind chill and did not feel the cold at all. Unlike the Kensington parka, the fur collar is quite full, but does not zip off, so removing it to get the coat washed might be a hassle. I also have a North Face Triple C parka and the Expedition parka is substantially warmer and higher in quality, although much heaver (and more costly). There are a number of thoughtful features included in the design of the jacket, such as the knitted sleeves to keep out the wind and the velcro on the snowskirt is covered so that it doesn't stick to your jumper when it is not in use. I also like how the down used in the jacket is ethically sourced. Overall, I am very pleased with my Canada Goose Expedition parka and I feel that I am now adequately equipped for the harsh Chicago winter.

I contemplated going with the Canada Goose Trillium but decided on the expedition based on the extra features it offer (full down etc). I am 5'8 and 127 lbs and this jacket fits perfectly. If you are more interested in more feminine lines and a more of a sleeker fit go with the Trillium, otherwise this jacket is amazing. Very warm even in the Toronto, Canada climate. I highly recommend this jacket. Cheers!

This is a great parka for snow climates, warm with only a tee shirt under it. Runs narrow through the hips, if you are hour glass shaped it may be snug. I love it, I looked at hundreds of parkas and found this one to be the best quality with real fur.

This is the warmest coat ever. I wore it on a trip to Iceland in the winter, and it was perfect. There's elastic around the hood so that it stays in place. The size of the opening is adjustable as well.
