Canada Goose Women's Kensington Parka
You love the warmth of down but you're tired of the puffy, bulky fit of a down jacket. The Canada Goose Ladies Kensington Parka keeps you toasty warm and preserves your slim silhouette. This long winter jacket is made with an outer shell of Arctic-Tech poly/cotton blend fabric with a DWR finish to repel snowflakes. Lined with nylon, you'll be able to easily slide this Canada Goose coat on over mid layers and it will wick moisture to keep you dry and comfortable.

Great Look and Purpose
I originally bought the trillium XS and thought I needed something that heavy duty for working outside but I'm wrong. The trillium is too thick so I decided to try the Kensington which is slightly longer and has half the insulation (re: CG). The Kensington is definetely slimmer but warm enough for me to be 2-3 hours outside in -20. It looks great and it's warm so good enough for me. Though I wasn't sure why the price difference between the Trillium and Kensington as the trillium appears to be a lot thicker, thicker materials, better fur and just seem better quality overall. The Kensington has slightly weird buttons that I don't use because they are not very practical at all. I prefer the Trillium snap buttons for ease of use. The chest warmer pockets on the Kensington are too short for you to put your hands in. However, I still choose the Kensington for the style. Pros: slimming & warm, rear flaps, carrying inside straps Cons: no neck protection, tight neck colar/zipper, no wire in the hood and the hood is not detachable (the fur is).
