Being Canadian means many things: you say sorry A LOT, you love Tim Horton’s coffee (I personally prefer Starbucks, but I’m probably the exception), you pronounce it zed not zee, and you scrape frost off your window for approximately 7 months of the year. It also means you probably have a pretty legit jacket collection to help you get through those 7 glorious months of window scraping.
My collection has definitely grown over the last few years and this season is no exception. I recently received this jacket from FIG Clothing, a Canadian company, and it has quickly become my favourite! There’s a few things that make it stand out. First, it has a inner down insulated lining making it SO warm and it also gives the illusion of layering which I always love. The jacket itself isn’t super thick, yet it definitely has proven to be warm. The vertical zippers for the pockets and the slim fit make it extremely flattering-no more looking like a Michelin man this winter! And last, the fabric of this jacket is unlike any other that I own, it’s just a tad dressier than most parkas which is nice for a change. We’ve all been there… you’re all dressed up for a night out on the town with your gals and it -40 so you’re stuck wearing your big bulky parka looking like an abominable snowman! Well, that’s definitely not a problem anymore, the wool blend finish of this coat makes it just a little dressier so you can be warm AND look cute!
Now let’s get technical:
-it has a waterproof breathable fabric (“Eco” durable water repellent (DWR-C6))
– a polyurethane (PU) membrane that keeps you dry
– 10K waterproofing and 10K breathability
– and is RDS certified responsible down
Impressed?! Me too!! You can shop my look here:
Thinking of ordering? Here’s a few things to keep in mind:
1.) FIG is offering free shipping + returns on all winter jackets until December 15, 2017 (Canadian orders only) You can order the jacket here!
2.) It does fit on the big side so I would suggest sizing down. I am wearing an XS.
