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"

Canada Goose for Vancouver? Give me a break. You are reeming out guys who are saying man up. You get a week of cold weather a year. Wear a thermal layer underneath whatever you normally wear during winter and you will be as warm as you need to be.

I had a Canada Goose Parka. The minute I left the arctic I sold it on the spot, and I spend a lot of time outdoors in Ottawa. Canada Goose is becoming more mainstream and stylish these days, and for that it is completely over priced. I mean it's sold at Holt Renfrew in Ontario for f's sake.

One other thing to keep warm. Make sure you eat food, just keep shoveling food down the hatch and you should have enough energy to survive the cold.

I work "outside" all day in North Vancouver and all I've been wearing is a t-shirt, paradox base layer top, nike hoody, carhart vest, paradox base layer bottom, carhart pants, socks, and blundstone steelcap boots. That's actually not much clothing at all.

I say "outside," because the houses I'm working on right now have no doors or windows or insulation. It's colder working in these wind tunnels than it actually is outside.

If you kids actually ate something maybe you wouldn't have to buy $9999.99 Canada goose egg jackets.

I didn't even buy a Milwaukee heated jacket as of yet, because I'm too cheap. Maybe next year.
Base layer and some good socks is all you need.

Ok well first of all I have only heard of Canada Goose, I have never personally seen one let alone try one on. Hence the reason I made a posting on Revscene to ask for opinions and reviews.
I was not reeming anyone, I was merely pointing out the fact that wanting to dress comfortably for Winter does not warrant a contest of having the biggest testicles.
I think after this interesting ordeal I'm gonna look for a thermal long sleeve to wear underneath and be done with, gonna check out MEC tomorrow

If you need to ask people you don't know what you need to wear to dress warm, I think you need to crawl back home to mommy and daddy and grab a soother to suck on. Mommy can dress her little baby, bundle you up night and tight!

Not reeming anyone out. Just getting annyoing how people come into the Fashion forum and criticize others for wanting to buy a nice jacket. I should be failing every single one of Iceman's posts.

Base layer? Thermal layer? We live in Vancouver. Do you wanna be sitting at Cactus Club with 4 layers of clothing on? That's why people in the city have those jackets. So they can just wear a t-shirt or dress shirt underneath.

I do agree with you on how Canada Goose is becoming too much of a status symbol. And because of that, I will never buy one.

If you're still interested in base layer sport chek has a bogo 1/2 off deal going on. Picked up a matching set of Columbia base layer for ~110 tax in.
