If he can afford a Porsche, he can afford the operation to close up his vagina and attach some testes. It's -9 dude, it will last for 2 days. Wear a toque and a sweater, for fuck sales.

I also work in cold temperatures. I'd say most important is to keep your head warm. makes a big difference.

In preparation for this winter I bought a new Monclar jacket worth $1000. Price tag alone doesn't determine shit but I heard good things and down feather is supposed to be a good choice and plus it looked nice. Fast forward 3 months now and I can say I'm quite disappointed. I randomly bought a Vince hoody the other day which has fur on the inside and I can honestly say just wearing a tshirt and that vs the Monclar I feel way warmer. Plus the added bonus of not having that shitty feeling or drag of wearing a bulkier jacket I'm loving the hoody so far.

since canada goose is sold at holt renfrew and is popular with the younger crowd, it just gives me a negative impression whenever i see it.
not sure why but i think the high price attracts the kind of people who brand whore.

well, monclar is a fashion brand not an outdoor brand. you are paying for the name and style as you discovered.

This thread is full of lols.

If you bought the warmest clothing available you would be close to sweating.

This thread seems more about being fashionable in the winter than staying warm.

Mo need to spend thousands of $$$ to stay warm, just layer up and shop at walmart. That's what regular people do.

+1.. This is a Vancouver forum.. Iceman, Good for you if you can go out in shorts and a t-shirt.

Just posted in a similar thread in off-topic, but I'll reiterate.

I'll start by saying I'm not for or against the $700+ jackets. If people wanna spend that much on a jacket, good for them.

People in Vancouver buy the big expensive jackets for a balance between practicality and fashion. They just wear a t-shirt or dress shirt underneath and they're good to go.

If you're going out to dinner or something you don't wanna be wearing 4-5 layers in the restaurant.

You can't really compare the urban Vancouver to say, Fort Mac in Alberta.

Say what you will, but being in the city, people wanna find a balance between practicality and fashion.
Whereas in a place like northern Alberta, you could walk around in snowboard gear and not even get a second look.

Good for you, so because you have massive internet balls, do you just wear a wifebeater and track pants? Mr. Big Man you.

It sounds like you are wrapped up like a stuffed Thanksgiving turkey. This has nothing to do with being a man or not. Does that mean because you are wearing half of MEC's clothing line out to work that you can wear a tanktop in -9 and feel nothing? I call BS. Hypocrites grind my gears...

Well you can be all the "man" you want to be. Next time I see some douchebag poseur standing at the bus stop next to me in -5 weather wearing a wifebeater and tear-aways I'll be sure to ask him if he's related to Iceman-19 on RS cuz he is "DA MAN"

I can vouch for Canada Goose, I have a Chilliwack myself. And like you I'm not big on layering. With the Goose I can usually get away with nothing more then a T in the Vancouver cold and not get too warm indoors or out. It's not my dedicated winter coat though, I usually just break it out when it hit close to 0. I could care less about the fashion aspect of it, I plan on owning this thing for many years since it barely gets any wear annually.

Go check out Eddie Bauer, their outdoor clothing is pretty good. I think it good enough for Vancouver cold weather.

If you stand out in the cold, wear a long johns or base layer underneath.

It's just worth $1000, I didn't even spend anywhere close to that price for it. Normal people may just shop at Walmart and wear 4 layers of clothing but I still prefer to get the best of both worlds of warmth and fashionable without having to break the bank too hard. Was going to buy the Goose originally but it was quite a bit heavier than the other jacket. Oh wells Tshirt and Hoody is working just fine right now anyways.
